Sleek Oh So Special palette

This is probably the most ideal palette for me, a selection of soft peachy tones in amongst deep chocolate browns & the deepest black. All of which are completely on trend for SS11 as well as AW11. It's ideal for day use & completely usable for a dramatic night look. The colour pay off is as per usual with the sleek palettes - surprisingly brilliant for such a low price. It retails at £6.49 & honestly you really can't go wrong, it's probably the most versatile, beautiful palette of colours that will all get used at one time or another. Definitely worth a drop in the shopping basket.

Sudocrem tube

In my adult life I've not used sudocrem as a staple, but I'm not going to lie, I have been caught with it dotted on my face during my years at uni, but I was never an avid user. This could be due to the massive, slightly less travel sized pot we have at home. But since being sent samples of the tube I've carried one with me when staying over & one by my bedside at home & have definitely come to realise the benefits of this cream.

I suffer from eczema, it's especially worse in the summer due to the heat, so putting a light layer of Sudocrem on my skin before bed has eased the itch & saved my legs being mauled by my scratching in my sleep. It also helped sooth my underarms when I had the bright idea to veet them, not the best thing I've done, it burned my skin & hurt for days, Sudocrem soothed it really well. I don't believe the Cheryl Cole claims that it'll get rid of a spot over night, but I do believe it helps soothe & protect skin really well. & for such a low price for a handy tube that you can take anywhere with you, it's definitely one of my must haves now.

Sudocrem also have this bagology app on facebook that determines your personality & traits from your bag, not sure how accurate it is but if you're intrigued & want to have a go head over to
