killed by death ♥


Well I've had a pretty relaxed weekend, I went shopping, watched the (amazing) Spice Girls and ate a lot of pizza. I think its given me a much needed rest - I still sound rough but I'm getting better! I do feel incredibly sorry for all the PR companies who have to listen to my voice while I'm at the more! beauty desk. I've been here for nearly 5 weeks now - its gone so quick! It's almost time for lunch and I've got a coronation chicken wrap nom, nom, nom. I heard about the couple who had won the lottery at the weekend, sigh. What I would do if I won £148 million pounds! Anyway, last night I came home and started reading Fifty Shades Freed, then I did some yoga and went into bed. Not the most thrilling evening but I'm still in poor student mode at the moment. I've just come upstairs from the Grazia beauty sale - words can't describe how much I am in a good mood right now. I've bought 2 Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Lip Stains in shade 17 and 3. I'll take a picture of all of them when I get home! I really want shade 6 though - we all know how addicted I am to nudes. I also bought the Britney Spears perfume Cosmic Radiance, it smells gorgeous and I've been spraying it non stop - I feel sorry for the rest of the office... And I was so upset - I saw a Kim Kardashian perfume but by the time I went round the room again it was gone :( Sorry Kimmie. I also got a nude Givency eye pencil, I'll probably use it as a lip liner though - its such a beautiful nude! I got a glittery nude Leighton Denny nail polish but for some reason it doesn't say the shade name. I have another bag to get through but I'll do that when I get home. Ahh what a hard day it has been ;)

For today's post I wanted to look at St. Ives Apricot Scrub, now this is the Blemish Fighting version and I think it really suits my skin type. St. Ives Apricot Scrub has been the only product that I've stuck with, I think I first started buying it when I was 14 and I think that says a lot about the quality of a product if I've never strayed from it. In case you are a stranger to facial scrubs, this baby basically has tiny grains in the cream and it gently removes dirt and any dead skin. I'll be honest, I hate doing skin routines, I'm so lazy with it but for some reason St. Ives Apricot Scrub keeps me amused. Maybe its because you can actually notice the difference it makes to your skin right away. I'm far too lazy to use something for weeks and weeks if I don't notice anything happening. I demand fast results! haha ;) There are many different scrubs that St. Ives do and they suit everyone. The Invigorating scrub leaves your skin with a nice healthy glow and focuses more on the overall appearance of your skin, but the Blemish Fighting scrub fixes any imperfections or areas of your skin that are prone to breakouts. When I use it, I usually leave it on for 5 minutes like a face mask so it settles into my skin more, then I massage, massage, massage. It's tradition for me to use a ugly hair band when I'm doing this, remember the pink fabric ones you used to have when you were in primary school?! No? Just me... Anyway, I'm glad I'm telling you about my very basic skin routine, I can't live without my St. Ives scrub and it goes to show you that you don't have to spend a fortune for flawless skin! Let me know what you think about St. Ives and if you also have an unattractive head band.. Have a good day girls! ♥
