Drugstore Beauty Supplies

Beginner Drugstore Makeup Tools
Superdrug Eyelash Curlers (buy here)/Real Techniques Core Collection (buy here)/ Boots Sponge-Wedges (buy here)/ Cosmopolitan Beauty Blender (buy here)
I recently stepped into Boots with the aim of replacing a few items (disposable sponges, new tube of lipstick and so on) and came out with more shopping bags than I bargained for. I frequently get carried away in there, trying out new products, oohing and aahing at all the the shiny things, taking a whiff of perfume samples; I take my sweet time. Anyway, I thought I would share with you guys, some of my staple drugstore beauty supplies/tools you might want to check out when next you're in Boots, Superdrug or any other drugstore near you.

Current Favourites | Fashion Bloggers

   Shirley Eniang of Shirley's Wardrobe 
   I love everything about Shirley's style, it's simple and effortlessly chic. 

          Ashley Madekwe of Ring My Bell
  I first fell in love with her in Revenge without knowing she had a blog, once I discovered her blog, she became an instant favourite. Ashley has one of  those blog's where you immediately click on whatever she posts and then somehow proceed to spend hours scrolling through the entire thing.

Leftovers in Brixton Village

After some vicious elbowing, I have finally managed to grab a stool in Federation Coffee. I am in heaven right now with my Flat White and chocolate cheesecake brownie but this post isn't about my addiction to brownies and good coffee (more on that later). This post is all about a pocket sized shop called Leftovers which happens to be a one stop shop for antique fashions and exquisite vintage finds. Think pre-fifties clothing, lace, unbelievable intricacy, victorian frocks, woollen jumpers and as though that wasn't good enough, fair prices.

Wish List | Urban Outfitters Home

1.Urban Outfitters:Vanilla Dreams Candle,£6 (buy here)
I have recently developed a unhealthy obsession for Yankee Candles but they happen to be expensive and I happen to be cheap so I have hunted down some cheaper alternatives. I can't wait to get my hands on the Vanilla Dreams Candle which according to the website smells "good enough to drink."
