This Week I'm Loving...#3

Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask
I literally have 3 of these in my bathroom at the moment, I bought them a while ago and after using lots of different things over the last few months I had forgot about these sat in my drawer. Whilst having a little rummage I decided to crack a new one open and give my hair a little coconut loving! I forgot how much I love this stuff - it is a total and utter bargain at only £1.99 and makes my hair so soft and shiny. If you're looking for a pick me up for your hair but are on a tight budget this is the stuff for you!

Lucy Mecklenburgh - Be Body Beautiful
Now you've probably seen my review on this already (if not check the side bar as I think it's still in my most read of this week or click HERE)! I have fallen in love with this book, it is amazing for everything health and fitness related. From recipes to self-esteem Lucy has covered everything in an easy and helpful fashion, if you're looking to turn your life around this is definitely worth a look!

Make-Up Revolution Radiant Light Collection*
I was recently sent these new products from the lovely people at MUR and I am obsessed with them! These are a new range of highlighting powders and after using their Vivid Baked highlighters to deaht I knew I was going to be a fan of these too! There are 3 different shades which you can read all about here, from a gorgeous light pink undertone to a more bronzed goddess shade! My favourite at the moment is Breathe!

Into The Woods
If you follow me on twitter you will know that I bloomin' well loved this movie and yes I have seen it twice already at the cinema! (My Mumma wanted to go so I kindly offered to go again!) I love a good musical and of course I love Disney so this was a win-win in my eyes! It made me laugh and I have been singing the songs ever since - I need to invest in the soundtrack! (My love for Anna Kendrick has once again grown!)

Jordans Raisin & Almond Granola
I bought this and a replacement for sweet snacks. I have such a sweet tooth, things like chocolate and biscuits are a serious weakness in my diet! But so far in 2015 I've managed to stay clear of them for the most part! I have been loving this stuff with natural yogurt, fresh fruit and a little bit of honey! I know granola isn't the most healthy option but it's better than a bar of galaxy right?

Frozen Money Pot
I got this little beauty from my little brother for Christmas! Saving money is something I really want to do in 2015 and this is going to help! It's so pretty I'll never want to smash it!

YSL Nail Polish - Rouge Dada
I recently purchased this and have been so so impressed! I am literally the worst nail painter in the history of the world! BUT.... the brush on this is so amazing, it makes it so easy to paint my nails... plus the colour is gorgeous! I've worn this a couple of times now and have been so proud of myself with the results haha!

How To get Away With Murder
Oh my god - this show is amazing! I saw the trailer for it when I was in Florida back in September and I knew it was something I was going to enjoy. I literally watched the whole first season in less than 2 days. If you like crime/law dramas with a bit of mystery you will love this! It's like Legally Blonde meets Scandal, bring on season 2!

My New Laptop
Yay! It's official, I finally have a laptop again! Yes, that's right I have been without a functioning laptop for a year now - I have been blogging on a netbook.... do you know how hard that is? I've definitely learnt some patience I tell ya! It is so nice to have itunes back and I finally feel like I can blog properly... and hopefully get my youtube up and running again soon!

  15. I FREAKING LOVE "Into the Woods"! My favorite movie of all time (after Beetlejuice and all Tim Burton works). I went to watch it with my girls and spent the next 2 weeks singing all the songs and telling about it to everyone I spent 5 minutes with. I'm obsessed! Anna Kendrick's voice 'oh my'! :) xx
