Lil Miss Shopaholic: Recent haul +

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! I haven't done a blog post in ages, so I've decided to outline what I have purchased in the last few months:

A Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch which was given to me for my birthday
A designer inspired handbag from eBay
An oil burner from Wilkinson's. I am currently burning a wax tart. If you think candles are too expensive - buy a wax tart! They only cost £1 and they smell so much stronger than a candle! All you need is a tea light underneath!
I purchased quite a few wax tarts from the Yankee candle stand in Debenhams! My favourite wax tart is  'Beach Flowers'.
I love Jelly Belly candles, which you may have gathered from this post. As I loved the Bubblegum candle a bit too much, I decided to buy the jar version - which is a lot bigger, and therefore will last longer. This scent is very strong - it's definitely my favourite scented candle :)
I also purchased a clock from Next to place on my dressing table. Now I can keep an eye on the time whilst    I'm getting ready for work!
I went a bit crazy in Next and purchased three cushions. I love Next's home ware section - it's just perfect for me!

I also purchased this makeup bag from Primark. I used to have a cream makeup bag (link) but it got very dirty! Black is definitely the best for storing makeup!
I'm also going on holiday soon, so I needed a bag to store my makeup! I hope this is big enough - I'm not the sort of person who believes in packing lightly!

What have you purchased recently?

Lil Miss Moisturised: Favourite body lotion!

I posted earlier that I loved body oils, but as they can get quite messy (and they're definitely not travel friendly), I decided to purchase a body cream. 

This Soap and Glory Smoothie Star body lotion is definitely my favourite body lotion to date! I have dabbled with the likes of Nivea, Vaseline and Garnier - but this one beats the lot! It makes my skin feel very smooth and soft - it's not too heavy and not too light either!

The first thing I like about this body lotion is that it is free from parabens (nasty chemicals which can potentially cause cancer!). Most moisturisers contain parabens, so this is a major plus point! 

The second thing I like about this body lotion is that it contains almond, cocoa, yoghurt, oat and honey - all of these are great for your skin! It also smells of almonds, oats and brown sugar (more like digestive biscuits to me)

I also love the fact that the body cream has a pump - which makes it sanitary! 
This body pump retails at £10.00 and can be purchased from Boots. There's currently a 3 for 2 offer at Boots, so I will definitely be stocking up!
What's your favourite body cream?
