A FEW OF MY CURRENT FAVOURITE THINGS

Newlook Necklace £5.99
I got this with a gift card which my Mum gave me for my birthday and I just can't stop wearing it; I'm so in love with wearing pink and purple at the moment! I feel like long pendant style necklaces are really 'me' and I always get nice comments on them when I wear them to work. I like how this one is quite chunky with the two different sections and think it really jazzes up a simple knitted jumper :)
Aussie Mega Shampoo & Mega Instant Conditioner £4.69 each
I used to love these when I was in my teens but I hadn't used them for a few years as I've been on a pretty tight budget until recently. Since getting my full fringe cut back in I decided I wanted to go back to them as they're the best shampoo and conditioner I've ever tried and always keep my hair nice and fresh throughout the day. I'd also forgotten just how incredible they smell, I really am besotted with them! They both have such a lovely consistency too and leave my hair quite literally squeaky clean as well as super soft and so so shiny; I've found myself getting a little overexcited in the shower each morning because I just love using these so much :) They're on a 3 for £10 offer in Boots at the moment too which makes them more affordable.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush
I was really excited to receive the Real Techniques Core Collection kit for Christmas (if you fancy a peak at what else I received I did a post on my presents here) as I'd wanted it for ages after hearing so many of my favourite beauty bloggers and youtubers rave about the Buffing Brush for applying foundation and oh my goodness they were so so right! I'd been using the Expert Face Brush for a couple of years and I always got on relatively well with it but I did find it quite hard work to get the product to look flawless and completely absorbed, but this Buffing Brush is on another level! It makes applying foundation so effortless as it really glides around the face and achieves such a flawless and natural looking coverage with very little buffing or blending needed. I find myself using a lot less product too and the brush doesn't get clogged up in the slightest (which the Expert Face Brush is very guilty of!) I can't get over how amazing this is it's made such a difference to the appearance and lasting power of my foundation :) 
New Look Handbag £12 (sale)
I featured this handbag in my latest outfit post and was really happy that people liked it as much as I do :) I got it in the New Look sale and there was only one left in my store so I grabbed it up pretty quick and was really shocked to see it was only £12; I think it looks a lot more high end and classy than New Look bags usually do (I don't mean that in a rude way but their handbags aren't usually my style) I've used it every day since I bought it it's just the perfect shape and size for everyday wear and I love that it has both a short and long handle. I really love the mix of colours too as it feels a bit more interesting than my other tan handbags and stops things feeling too 'matchy-matchy' when I'm wearing tan ankle boots (which I seem to wear every day at the moment!)

Love Holly xo
