Easter Weekend x

Hey guys, hope you all had a lovely Easter Weekend! x

During the week I was making a Easter hamper for my boyfriend to give to him on Sunday. I used an empty open cardboard box, wrapped it in a super cute paper with puppies on it and for the base I bought shredded paper that looked like straw. I then filled it with lots of sweets and chocolates that I know he loves and one big Easter egg.

On Saturday it was my sisters birthday and we all went out for dinner at TGI Fridays. We had a great night and to top it of the cake was amazing. She loved her presents and we all had a good laugh.

For Easter I received a few lovely Easter eggs and two Lush bath bombs that I cannot wait to use and review!

And to top it all off for the next three weeks I am off college and I will be relaxing myself but I'm also going to try and get organised.

How was your Easter weekend, what did you do?

P.S. Do you like how I've changed my blog? The grey theme and my new header is my favorite.

Five Things Every Girl Should Have!

Hello everyone and a very happy monday to you!

I thought I would share with you FIVE things that I believe every girl should have in their makeup bag!

1) Face Wipes;

Okay so this is an obvious oneeeee... BUT I always seem to be running out of them so I always suggest to stock up on them when your in superdrug, boots or any pharmacy or supermarket.

ALSO, another key thing to know about face wipes is that there are so many out there that control different things, whether you have dry skin, oily skin or sensitive skin, there are many brands out there for you. Personally I have extremely sensitive skin so most of the time I buy baby wipes as they do they same job with out irritating my skin!

2) Dry Shampoo;

I thought everyone knew what dry shampoo is but to be honest, not a lot of people do! Dry Shampoo is a spray that you use in your hair when your hair is slightly greasy. There are many different types and some are used for adding volume to your hair, so its not just for slightly greasy hair but if your going to style your hair, using the dry shampoo with extra volume can hold your curls or waves or whatever style your going for!

3) Cotton Wool Buds;

I can not explain how much I use these beauties! Most people use them for their ears BUT I use them for correcting my eyeliner when it doesn't go as great as I thought it would lol. They are so handy and small so great for travelling! I am also the messiest when it comes to mascara because I have no patience at all and most of the time I am running late. I either sneeze or blink to hard or anything possible to ruin it all over my eyelid. But instead of fully wiping off your eye shadow that took you about 20 minuets, you can whip out your handy cotton wool buds and take JUST the mascara off! What more can a girl ask for?!

4) Eyebrow Gel;

Eyebrow Gel was send from heaven as it keeps your brows in place all day! Its so easy to use and takes no time at all which is perfect when your late or in a rush. If you have never bought eyebrow gel but are interested in buying it, I recommend buying a clear gel as sometimes it is tricky finding your brow shade and it does the exact same job.

5) Powder;

Don't tell me this is an obvious one because its not. Yes, it controls the shine on your face and helps to set your makeup but it also makes your lipstick matte. Even if your lipstick is a high shine, applying your lipstick then patting on powder can make your lipstick matte. This works with any colour and your basically getting two lipsticks in one! Also make sure that it is in the colour translucent other wise your lip colour will change!

I hope you enjoy the my thoughts of the Five things Every Girl Should Have, tell me what you think over on twitter: @sassylassy_x
