5 beauty favourites | July 2015

Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry shower gel // Contour brush // Sailor Moon eyeliner // Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir // Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade

Back on the favourites train! This Original Source shower gel is literally like my crack, the smell is kind of like white chocolate and almost smells edible. Plus these shower gels are usually only £1 in Boots so deffo a fav by my standards. Click on the links above to see my review of the contour brush and the eyeliner, the latter is just so pigmented and precise I can't even. I was looking for a new hair oil and grabbed this Frizz Ease one the other day and it seems really good! 

I had been using coconut oil on my hair til I was informed it's actually meant to be used as a hair mask and washed out, which is explains why my hair was looking so greasy after using it...Regarding brows I'm so in love with DipBrow, it does work best when it's kept in a slightly higher than room temperature environment as the product does get a little stiff, but it's still workable and gives fab brows everytime. What products did you enjoy last month? xx

Leaving Japan and returning to the UK

So where have I been? Apologies for the extreme lack of posting! I got somewhat caught up in end of year exams, then 'shit I've been in Japan for nearly a year and haven't done anything and I'm about to leave' / 'shit I'm about to leave Japan and I have a crapload of preparation to do' mode started. After I came home it was a blur of seeing family members I hadn't seen for 10 months, visiting friends and family and then heading off to Spain on a family holiday for a week. But I'm back now! I've been back in the UK for nearly 3 weeks now and I've readjusted alarmingly quickly, although some things have stuck from being in Japan - it took me about a week to get used to pounds and pence again, a bus driver asked me for 10p and I gave him a 2p coin (which look like 10 yen coins) and he looked at me like I was the dimmest person ever...

I'm going to do some posts on it but there's definitely some things I was glad to return to in the UK and some things I wasn't, the lack of politeness and efficiency compared to Japan has been getting on my nerves a bit, not that we're bad at it but Japanese standards are insane! The picture was taken by my friend who's a talented fashion photographer, check out his insta @danielhirozawa xx
