Bourjois Blush 34 Rose D'or

Once upon a time there was a girl with a mere 5 products in the contents of her makeup bag! A good 4 years on and that small makeup bag has now become a 6 drawer Malm from Ikea, brimming with copious amounts of makeup (oops). 
Im sure were all a little guilty of what im about to say next! Yon know how it is, that beloved no7 eyeshadow palette from three Christmases ago gets lost in the bottom of the drawer in favour of the Urban Decay Naked palette, the once adored 17 Lipstick has been replaced with the latest and greatest LE MAC lippie to brace your newsfeed, and that one precious blush that once sat pride of place in the 5 product makeup bag has now been joined by several others! Sound familiar? 

With all the hype surrounding Bourjois of late (and with good reason) I couldn't resist recovering what was once my beloved baked blush in 34 Rose D'or from the sea of blushers and bronzers. Its safe to say that these little round pots have gained a cult following since there first release 150 years ago, and its easy to see why. 
Rose D'or is a beautiful, somewhat peachy Pink, with finely milled gold glitter, perfect for adding a subtle pop of colour to the cheeks! Not only is Rose D'or a dream to apply, but it also has a musky vintage rose smell, which helps make application all the more enjoyable (what can I say I love a good scent ha). 
Rose D'or will set you back £7.99, and can be purchased from the likes of Boots and Superdrug.
I hereby declare that I will not let this beauty make its way to the bottom of my drawer again ;) 
Have you rediscovered an old favorite lately?!

A Hint Of Primping

So in the four years I have been with Tim, he has been succumbed to countless hours of beauty chit chat, a copious amount of time staring at makeup counters "that all look the same", and mad trolley dashes abroad around one too many Sephora's, Duane Reade's and French Pharmacies. Some would say he has the patience of a saint (my mother in particular), but four years on and he can now easily identify the products I spend far too much time applying on a daily basis. Along with the many excuses I give for needing said items in my routine.

However this being said my lovely boyfriend is well known for spending one too many minutes primping himself too. Whether it be indulging in some quiet time in the bath (usually with one of my Lush bath bombs I may add), or spending a considerable amount of time infront of the mirror preening himself which can usually be deciphered by the wonderful waft of Hugo Boss Day that lingers throughout the house (mmmmm). 

After one of his hour long primping sessions, I couldn't resist asking him to spill the contents of his beloved Quicksilver washbag. The comments that ensued were just too funny not to share with you all. 
So here it is, Tims reasonings behind the items in his Washbag, enjoy!!

 Hugo Boss Eau De Toilette & After Shave Balm 
"Anything that gets me one step closer to becoming Ryan Reynolds is worth a try right?! haha"

Nivea Face Wash 
"cheap and cheerful"

Lynx Body Scrubber 
"a lover of anything novelty, I bought this for the sole reason that it was branded with the Lynx logo"

Tango body wash 
"it smells like apples, and cost the grand total of a quid, what more can I say?!"

Lynx Apollo
"cause every man wants to feel like an astronaut, and the fact that it was part of a 4 for £5 offer helped" 

Garnier Fructis Style Manga Head 
"theres nothing better than sexy hair, and this does the trick"

I hope this post managed to put a smile on your face!! have you ever asked your partner/brother/dad the reasons for purchasing the items in their Wash Bags?!
