they're everywhere ♥

I have been meaning to do this post for a while now, I use these products pretty much every day and I always carry them around with me so it makes sense to do a "what's in my bag" post. Minus the usual keys, phone, make-up bag, I wanted to talk about the essential products that you might need. For example, I can go into work and by 5.30 I will be going out for unexpected work drinks, so these little gems are the perfect way to transform your look from day to night. They are all quite small and they fit perfectly in your bag, that's what I love about them!

Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears - I have purchased this perfume again and again purely because I think it's a lovely scent and the bottle is the perfect size. It has a lovely fruity, floral scent to it which makes it perfect for drinks after work, I usually wear Alien by Thierry Mugler if I'm on a night out. It's not my favourite Britney perfume, (I prefer Circus) but I think the size is perfect for my bag and I'm not worried about using it everyday.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter 50ml – This product is my ultimate must have, I cannot leave the house without it, if I have my legs on show, they need to be moisturised and smooth. It's only 50ml so it does last quite a while. I know some people aren’t too keen on scented moisturisers but I love the smell of cocoa butter! You can find this size usually in the travel section in Boots or Superdrug.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain – As I said in last weeks post, this has recently made its way back into my life, it really does complete a look especially when the sun is shining! The pigmentation is incredible and it definitely transforms my regular work make-up to evening. Slightly on the pricey side, I am on the hunt for a similar shade that doesn't cost over £19! Feel free to post any suggestions ;)

Model’s Own nail polish in Coral Reef* - It is no secret that I am awful at painting my nails, so I’ve been trying to practice and this shade is the one colour that looks really nice on my nails because of how well the colour dries! This is a really pretty, summery shade and it’s nice to add some colour to your outfits. It has impressive staying power and I think this will look great when I finally get a tan this year!

Balance Me Face Radiance Face Oil – Although my skin is slightly oily, I use this before I go to bed to really keep my skin in good condition. For some reason, my forehead is getting quite dry and although I use a primer before I apply my foundation, I find that using the Balance Me Face Oil really helps control my skin. I love the size of this bottle and not only do I use the oil for my face, but I also add a drop to my legs for extra shine! This is the sample size I received from the Glamour magazine Latest In Beauty box.

Phil Smith Super Straight Hair Serum - It can be really hard to find a hair serum that suits your hair type, I have used hundreds of different brands over the years and this Phil Smith serum is the only one I have really stuck with. My hair can't handle a lot of product but it still needs a fair amount to actually make a difference on my hair! I only use a small amount of the serum and it really does keep my hair smooth and soft. I can use this a lot throughout the day and it doesn't make my hair greasy.

  1. For the YSL Glossy Stain, you could try Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer. I think Apocaliptic is a close color match to your fave. It's a much better price, too! Hope you like it. ~Melissa
