Mini First Impression | Boots Essential Skincare

boots post

When it comes to skincare I can be a bit of a floozy. As a student, I’m always reluctant to spend a fortune & I always look for products that are really quick and easy to apply. For this reason, I was drawn to Boots Essential skincare. Most items in the line cost around £1.50 (!) which is an absolute bargain. It’s safe to say that I wasn’t expecting much from the two items I tried, but I was really pleasantly surprised.

Keira Knightley is an actress that largely divides opinion. Personally, I have so much love for her as an actress, woman and role-model. Not only do I respect her for not paying herself an obscene salary (and supporting organisations such as UNESCO, Women’s Aid and Amnesty International), but also because she is a strong and successful woman in her own right.

Festive Lush Bubble Bars

I’m writing this blog post wrapped up in bed with my duvet and blankets like a squirrel in hibernation. As the cold winter months are upon us, there really is nothing like a nice warm bubble bath to keep you sane. Lush bubble bars are a great little indulgence for them days where you need a little pick me up.
