Drugstore Spring Essentials♥

Hey hey loves!♥

How’s it going? Are you all well? Good week so far? Wow Saira.. can you ask any more questions haha! Sorry! I honestly just want to know how you all are! Hope you have all been very well!

Ahhhhhh Spring is upon us (ish!)… the weather is so rubbish in the UK.. we had some snow on the weekend. SNOW. Sure.. the weather may not really be the best at the minute.. but I am ALL ready for spring in the eyes of beauty/makeup/fashion… I bought some beauty bits which will be featured soon on my blog and YouTube channel.. so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for that!!

So angels.. what do you think of when Spring comes around? Fresh, Floral, Brights/Pastels… well me too!! Yay! I thought I would talk you through my favourite beauty items that get me in the mood for Spring, as well as ensuring my makeup is Spring ready!!



Perfect Spring Bath♥

Ohhhhh.. you guessed it! HOW COULD I DO A BEAUTY POST WITHOUT SOME LUSH!? Now.. whilst the weather is still slighly cool.. I still like to have baths (because.. what else can relax you more than a Lush bath?). One of my favourite items to use has been the Green Bubbleroon*.. it has such a beautiful, fresh scent.. SUCH a gorgeous change to all the sweet scents from Winter time!

Zingy Showers♥

Of course.. once the weather (eventually) warms up.. most of us will want quick, refreshing showers.. right? So… I have pulled another Lush beauty out.. and that is Whoosh shower jelly! This is probably one of the yummiest smelling things EVER!!! Now I will be honest.. these little babies can be a LITTLE tricky to use in the shower… but all I do is use it with my loofah and it actually lathers up quite well! It then leaves your skin feeling SO soft and the scent lingers for hours! Seriously though.. next time you are in Lush, pop over and check this baby out.. you will not regret it.. oh no you will not.

Grapefruit Scented Beauties!♥


Ohhh.. there is just something about grapefruits that just SHOUTS Spring to me! Don’t you think lovelies? I think it is the lovely, fresh scent.. and the stunning pink colour of ANY grapefruit products.

Body Butter♥

My FAVES have been The Body Shop Grapefruit Body Butter*.. I know SO many of you love their body butters.. and the scent of this one is BEAUTIFUL! As you all know … Body Shop body butters are so moisturizing.. I highly recommend them girlies!

Face Wash♥

I have recently been switching up my face washes quite a bit guys (so unlike me.. I am usually a creature of habit).. and I have been LOVING the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash (alongside my Magnitone.. obvs).. it does such an amazing job at refreshing my skin in the morning and making it feel SO clean too! I ADORE the scent too.. so yummy! Make sure to try it if you haven’t already!


OK… this may sound obvious HA! Of course deodorant’s job is to make you feel fresh & clean.. but I have found the LOVELIEST smelling one EVER! It is not one of those awful ones that makes you choke if you accidentally walk in to the cloud of deodorant after you have sprayed it (we have all done it guys hehe).. it has such a lovely sweet scent! It is the Sure Bright Bouquet, with a scent of strawberry & apricot.. yum!

Fresh Faced!♥


Of course guys.. we all know hat when Spring comes around… most of us want light, dewy looking make-up.. compared to the heavy make-up we rock in the colder months! SO….. out come our BB creams, pink blushers and cream products!! Have a peek below for a quick, spring make-up look.. using all drugstore products of course!


Apply a thin layer of Rimmel’s 9-in-1 BB cream… this is so gorgeous and just blends into your skin perfectly! It provides light coverage..but actually does a pretty fab job at evening out your skin tone and perfecting it! Woo!

Another FAVE product of mine recently has been the Skin WOW Concealer from Seventeen*.. I use it under my eyes and OH MY.. it works AMAZINGLY at brightening up my dark, puffy eye bags! This beauty can also be used as a highlighter too!

SPEAKING OF HIGHLIGHTERS.. Collection 2000 have probably one of my FAVE products ever this Spring.. and that is their Speedy highlighter. This is such a stunning champagne coloured, cream highlighter. It really does stick to it’s name… I use this every morning as part of my work make-up .. and it is SO effortless and quick!! I use it under my brows, on my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.. and it just gives the most beautiful highlight to your skin! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this girlies.. AND IT WAS ONLY £3.99!!


Of course.. pink blush is a MUST for Spring time… and I have been LOVING Seventeen’s blush in “First Flush”.. this stuff is SO pigmented guys its unbelievable! It is also completely matte.. which  I like for during the day.. it just means I have a lovely natural flush to my cheeks!

For my eyes.. it is all about keeping it SIMPLE.. so a coat of Maybelline Falsies mascara is enough to leave my lashes looking GORGEOUS (if I do say so myself.. tehehe). I then would use either Maybelline Baby Lips on my lips.. or a good old nude lip! And THAT IS ALL … this just means your makeup is as natural as possible.. yet still is enough to make you look awake and fresh-faced!


So darlings.. these are my Spring Essentials from the drugstore to make you feel all refreshed and Spring-y (I class this as a word now, hehe)… covering everything from skincare, bath products and make-up! Make sure to let me know if you have tried any of these products darlings!

So angels.. I hope you loved seeing what my refreshing, spring essentials are! I absolutely love this season as it is all about feeling fresh, awake and bright.. and swapping up your beauty products and make-up (and not just your clothes) is definitely a fab way to do this!!

Right angels.. quick catch up here! I will be completely honest.. I have felt a little distant from blogging recently as I have just not been able to do my usual catch up of blogs as I normally do. Things have just been so busy… and for some reason I have just felt so much more tired and run down than usual.. BUT I am so determined to fight through it and get back into my routine! I will definitely be using these next few days to catch up on all your blogs lovelies!! So.. anyways.. as usual work has been mega busy… I just cannot wait for the weekend (as always hehe!)… I am actually going to Leicester next week for 2 days… which should be fun! I also cannot wait to film my next video too.. I am hoping to invest in some lighting which should definitely help me.. as I am restricted to film at a certain time.. but this should hopefully help! I also have a few fashion posts that I am excited about.. so keep your eyes peeled!

OK loves.. I think that is me done for this post.. I really hope you have all been well and had a fab week too…. I appreciate every single one of you who takes the time out to read my blog/watch my videos/comment.. it honestly is the best feeling in the world!! LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! I will see you all in my next one!!

Lots of Love

    And that is exactly what I needed – spring essentials are so much fun to browse and I always love to discover either great new products or re-kindle love for something I’ve forgotten. Your recommendations are always coming to rescue, sweetie 🙂
    Speedy highlighter! You got me intrigued, babe 😉
    And don’t get me started on The Body Shop body butters – love them so much!!!
