Friday Faves: 19th June 2015

 It's almost been a week since my work experience holiday to Spain and I've been trying to steer myself clear of holiday blues but being back at sixth form and the poor British weather, is not making it any easier.

This week I've been getting back into the swing of normal things like getting up at 6:30 (fab) and being tired 24/7 because y'know school drains you of all possibly energy.

For some reason this week I've had way too many favourites to include in one post, so I've narrowed it down to five for you to enjoy.

Here are my faves...

Voss Water Bottle

Yeah I'm probably a good two years plus late onto the bandwagon.

I picked this up for two reasons 1) For it's aesthetics (y'know it's the type of bottle that'll looked good on your bedside table) and 2) I've wanted a large water bottle to have on said bedside table so I'm never not within an arms reach of water - cos waters good for you and you need it to survive.

Anyway, water's water and this doesn't taste any different even though it's from the highlands of Norway. The bottle's fab even though it's glass and when full it's full it isn't the lightest thing to carry.

"no." Notebook

I had to pick this up when I was in Tk Maxx. I just screams me. I have a thing for notebooks, especially the ones in Tk Maxx - they are just to die for! This is just a simple lined paper back notebook but with so much sass - I just couldn't not get it.

Hair Scrunchies

This is a bit of a boring one but I picked these two black velvet scrunchies from a Spanish supermarket back last week when I was in Spain. For a while now I've ditched hair bands for scrunchies because I find that it doesn't pull on my hair as much and unlike hairbands they're harder to lose.

These came in a pack of two for 3€ and I wish I had bought more.


I'm a big fan of blueberries whatever the time of year; they're good in fruit salads, smoothies or just as a snack on it's own. But recently I've been loving them because they've tasted so much better than they usually do. I'm pretty sure from May to August is their growing season so that explains their amazing taste.

Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Lotion

This is one of those "I've had this for ages but forgotten about it and when I started using it again I can't remember why I stopped in the first place", yeah one of those. I've had this for a while now and have only just started using it again. I usually use Garnier Micellar Water to take off all my makeup but recently I've been using it just on my face and have swapped to the Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Lotion to remove my eye makeup. And it works like a dream.

I just squirt the product onto two cotton pads and hold them onto my eyes - like you would with a cucumber when doing face masks - then after a couple of seconds I use it to gently wipe off any excess eye makeup. And bam. No trace of eye makeup in sight. In comparison to Garnier's Micellar water (which is fab on my face makeup don't get me wrong) I've found that a few of my eyelashes fall out when I use this to remove my eye makeup. The Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Lotion is a much better alternative. Gentle on the eyes, contains naturally active ingredients and smells wonderful too.
