Getting Organised with Bando

IMG_7889 1 Now that I have moved house and have an office in my home, I’ve been wanting to get a lot more organised. I noticed on Twitter Jemma (go check her out) tweeting about the most gorgeous planner, I nearly purchased the same one however whilst browsing others from the same brand I found another one which I fell in love with.IMG_7892 1This is the Bando Florabunda 17 month agenda and I think it’s so beautiful! It’s quite large which is what I wanted as I do have other planners but they’re too small, I can’t fit everything in them anymore so this one is the perfect size. I have been literally writing down everything I need to do as it helps me get super organised, it also helps stop me from stressing out and I don’t forget anything that I need to do.IMG_7903 1IMG_7908 1I love how much fun and positivity the planner is filled with, there’s lots of bright colours and fun little quotes and sayings throughout. I know I’m definitely going to take full advantage of national cookie day as well as the other fun dates that they’ve included, I tend to find these out too late on twitter but now I know in advance! At the front there’s a little pocket where I keep lots of cute stickers, then there is also a page full of stickers which are adorable.IMG_7900 1I am completely head over heels in love with this planner and I’m so glad that I ordered it. I’ve actually become a bit obsessed with planning since purchasing this which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as I’m super organised, however I spend too much time now shopping for stickers. Bando also sell lots of other adorable stationary and I currently have my eye on their pens which have cute sayings on all of them, they’re also pastel coloured.

LUSH Charity Pot | Hand and Body Lotion

lush charity pot reviewI’ve featured LUSH quite a lot over on my YouTube channel as I absolutely love their products, however it’s not very often that I talk about their products on my blog. For a change I thought I would share one of my favourite products of theirs which is the LUSH Charity Potlush charity pot the black fish 2What I love the most is that with every purchase of the Charity Pot 100% of the price (minus taxes) is donated to small grassroots organisations to help with the amazing work that they do. There are a few you can choose from as on the top of the lids it says what organisation that purchase will go towards, and mine is the Black Fish. It’s a hand and body lotion which has the most beautiful light and fresh scent, however is still lovely and rich. The cream is very moisturising and sinks into the skin well, also the scent lasts all day on my skin which is something I love. I much prefer creams that come in pots compared to tubes as you don’t have to try to squeeze the last bits out at the end and I feel like you don’t end up using all of the product when it comes in a tube. I’d love to know if you’ve tried any moisturisers from LUSH before, and if so what ones!

The Aztec Embroidered Dress

IMG_6288 IMG_6290 IMG_6303 IMG_6308 IMG_6298 IMG_6311Skater Dress with Aztec Embroidered Hem | ASOS
Aztec Sandals | Clarks
Coral Spotted Headband | Primark

I can often be found regularly browsing on the ASOS website looking through all the amazing pieces on their website, it’s definitely one of my favourite places for online shopping. My eyes were drawn to this dress straight away as I loved the contrast of the brightly coloured embroidered hem against the white. The aztec detail of the embroidery is absolutely beautiful and I have fallen in love with it. Around the waist it’s elastic so accentuates your waist and has a gorgeous cross-back. The colours in my sandals matched the embroidery on the dress so I thought they went really well together! Does anyone else love online shopping too or do you normally go into the stores?

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Ladyflower

Urban Decay Sheer Revoltion Lipstick in Sheer LadyflowerAs you may know I’m obsessed with lipsticks and I wear them all the time, so it’s no shock that I’m sharing one with you today. The Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Ladyflower* comes in the most beautiful packaging, a metallic purple which has a luxurious feel. It’s also quite sturdy so you wouldn’t have to worry about the lid ever falling off as it’s very secure.Urban Decay Sheer Revoltion Lipstick in Sheer LadyflowerThe shade is a beautiful rose-pink with slightly cool undertones and has a lovely shine. The pigmentation is semi-sheer to semi-opaque as you can build up the colour if you prefer or wear it more sheer. What I love is how rich and creamy the formula is, it literally glides onto your lips like butter and stays put for about 5 hours which I  think is pretty impressive! The reason why it’s so creamy is because is contains shea butter as well as a mixture of oils and vitamins so is very hydrating and keeps your lips feeling soft and smooth.Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick SwatchOverall I love this lipstick as it’s a gorgeous shade and has a great formula. Every time I’ve used this around people I always get asked where it’s from as everyone loves how beautiful the packaging is. Let me know if you’ve tried any lipsticks from Urban Decays Sheer Revolution range.
