Sunday Evening Self-Care

What better day of the week is there to take some time out for some self-care than a Sunday?

My favourite thing to do self-care wise is have a relaxing evening to myself utilising my favourite hair, skin and nail products.

I am more of a morning shower person; however, I love a long hot shower in the evening on a Sunday. To wash my hair, I am loving the ‘Bioderma Nodé Shampooing Fluide’ shampoo.» >

£56 for Tarte Makeup Worth Around £160?

For £56, I was able to get 7 of Tarte’s best-selling products averaging at £8 each.

The 7 products I chose were:

Beauty and Skincare Hacks

  1. When you’re travelling:

When travelling, I always feel like I forget something in my makeup bag. Usually it’s not an essential product for me, such as mascara, however, sometimes I seem to forget my favourite eyeshadow palette.

Use the bronzer in your crease to add definition, colour, and depth, then use the highlighter on your eyelid to create a shimmery glow.» >

A Day at the Races: Ascot

The QIPCO British Champions Day was the most popular day of the year this year at Ascot for students. With £10 student tickets and an afterparty DJ with headliner Basement Jaxx, what more could a student want at a day at the races?

Winning bets!

Ascot was accommodating to the student lifestyle on the day since you are permitted to bring in one bottle of sparkling wine per packed lunch in a cool bag (these are sold by various supermarkets by the till for around £2.50) or hamper.» >
