Casual ponytail

Here's how I do my casual ponytail...

(After I've washed and dried my hair)
1. Brush through your hair, freeing all knots.
2. Find a strong hair tie.

3. Simply tie round twice for thick hair, once for thinner hair.

It should be loose and almost slipping out.. but not quite .

And Relax Continued...

3.Once you're out of the bath put on a Onesie and a Turbie Twist. 

4.Then use a face mask to clear your pores; brush your teeth; coat your feet with moisturizer and then put on a fluffy pair of socks, to let your feet soak to become silky soft.

5. Lie down with a good book such as I capture the Castle (nothing too action packed or strenuous).

And relax......

Here's how I relax after a particularly stressful/tiring day:

1. Run yourself a hot bath (I add bath foam or a bath bomb). I am a massive bubble bath fan! 

2. Light some candles and play a spot o' "mucis" (or as normal people say: music)

 I adore Yankee Candles, they smell so great and this one I especially love.
I saw the Caramel Apple Candle in Zoella's Autumn and Winter Essentials video:
I also think that fairy lights set the mood really well too.
The Anthropologie candles are really creative, I love the match box idea! They used to do one that was like and old fashioned soap box. 
Although if you are looking for a cheaper candle that still smells and looks great, Urban Outfitters have a tin candle that I think's brilliant.

What I use:

These are the make-up products that I find work best for me....

hello flawless oxygen wow! 

Shade: ivory - this is the foundation I use,  I love it because it gives a really light covering and lasts forever!-Benefit.

BADgal lash mascara

For this I don't use the waterproof but I'm sure it would work just as well, the brush is huge and I've never found it to clump.- Benefit.

Face Contour Kit in Light

The Contour Kit doesn't come in many colours but light, I've found, does actually suit more than one skin tone. I really like it because it means that you can show off your cheekbones.-Sleek

                         Blushing Blush Powder Blush

Shade: Sunset Glow. Blusher is great because it's such a tiny thing but I refuse to leave it out; it adds a pretty, healthy glow.- Clinique

Beeswax Lip Balm Tin

I use this because it's portable and I've never had chapped lips when I use it. I find it gives a minty tingle when you wear it and would recommend it to everyone!

Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

I also use chubby sticks, I just think they're so cute and I find them really useful to moisturize dry lips.


rose-tinted lip & cheek stain

Benetint is AMAZING! I've had it for years and it works so well using a  really natural colour, but enough to brighten a face. 
Eye Kohl
I use the eye kohl on the ends of my eyebrows. I wear the colour teddy because it matches perfectly. It probably sounds a little odd, but because I'm blonde the ends of my eyebrows just disappear , so I have to shade in a whole eyebrow.

Real Techniques: core collection
These brushes are incredible, I recommend them to anyone and everyone!
