Waist Cincher Vest

As soon as summer is over, I’m back in these. That extra layer that takes away a layer they are MAGIC!

They smooth down the tummy and help with muffin top.  Go true to size because you still want to breath. Wear with jeans, trousers or skirts (they need to be tucked in or they will roll up).

For dresses you need the magic slip below.

Seamfree Shaping Medium Control Full Slip

Forget Spanx (unless you want to look like an overcooked sausage spilling out of it’s case). These, however, ARE THE BOMB.

They smooth down any lumps or bumps but you can still breathe, you can still go to the toilet AND you can wear your favourite bra (without squishing those assets!).

I do have one of these in every colour known to man! If you see me in a dress, chances are I have one of these magic tricks underneath.

Cashmilon™ Round Neck Jumper

This is just an ESSENTIAL piece in my wardrobe. It’s just a jumper but it’s non itchy, easy to wash and at such an insane price.

I swear by them EVERY year and wear them with skirts to *winterise*, over dresses, and, of course, with jeans and trousers.

The black is, hands down, the one I wear regularly but I have also bought myself the camel, navy and pink.  And I’m thinking I might just get the whole plethora of colours. Oh yes, I mean it when I say I love them!

5 Pack of Lace Waisted Thongs

This is just a 5 pack of pants.  But they’re super comfortable, high rise (that means they go over the belly for me!) and with no VPL.  It’s all I wear.

Well, ok, it’s all I wear on my bottom but you get my drift. Just be happy I don’t offer a try on service for these!

NYK1 Lash Force Eyelash Growth Serum

Eyelash serum. Naturally I have very sparse short eyelashes. I have tried every mascara and mascara base, but in last year I’ve converted to eyelash serums. I’ve tried a more expensive brand and it worked.. but my eyes got sore. And so I looked around.

This one though.. I was reticent at first, I was gifted it by the company and I wondered if it was just too reasonable to be effective! But I patiently continued and started to notice a gradual difference over 4 weeks and definitely on the parts of my lashes that were sparse / bald! Now I’m completely sold. It works. And it’s a lot cheaper than it’s competitors. And it doesn’t irritate my eyes! And… the best bit they’ve given me a code for you guys to get 10% off: 40PLUS10

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser

Don’t let the fact that it says tinted moisturiser make you think this doesn’t offer coverage.  It does and it’s very good, but the illuminating part gives a radiance that I don’t think I’ve EVER had naturally.

I honestly cannot live without it!  I have paid twice the price on holiday for it when I’ve forgotten mine – that’s how much I rely on it for a bit of radiance (from a tube!).

Natural radiance is good for most skin tones, unless you are fair then I’d go for bare radiance. In the summer with a (mostly fake) tan I go for warm radiance. You will LOVE IT!!!

BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector, Medium to Dark

I make no secret of the fact that I have dark under eyes. You can see them loud and proud when I do my make up free instastories. They’re so dark I think I look like the grim reaper sometimes but this stuff is the bomb!

You can use it on it’s own, or with your favourite concealer over the top but either way it’s a miracle worker!!!!

I’m a mix of the two shades so I use both, but if you are fairer you might get away with the light to medium.

Löwengrip Luminous Bronze Self-Tan Drops

I have not looked back since using these. I’ve tried other face tans since but I always come back to these. I use them regularly all year round.

Yes, these drops are more pricey than some but the colour it gives is perfect. Add a few drops to your favourite face cream and slap it on!

See the colour develop naturally as the day goes on!!!! You can even mix it with suncream if you like.

Isle of Paradise Self Tan Drops

And I use these all the time too! I use on my body mixed with my daily body moisturiser.

Add as many drops as you feel you need (go light at first).

I use the dark ones mixed in with my Nivea cream but as I said above you can even mix with suncream!

Babyliss Big Hair Rotating Styler

I think there should be more hair models and demos with people that have rubbish hair.  Yup, enough of the Pantene or Timotei ladies with their glossy locks. I have thinning, fine hair that frizzes. This smooths and gives volume.

Those of you that I’ve converted say that they can’t imagine life without it too now (and I’ve even converted a HAIRDRESSER to its marvels!).  The 42mm (pictured) works for shoulder length hair but there is also a larger one (50mm) for longer locks and a smaller one (32mm) for shorter lengths.

Colgate Max White One Whitening Toothpaste

I drink black coffee by the bucket load so I need this!!! I don’t use tooth whitening products but I swear by this.  Make sure it’s the *One* one.

I’ve tried the luminous, the charcoal, all the others – they don’t work as well.  You want the Colgate Max White One.  The full price is £4 so I normally stock up at Amazon with 3 for £2 each or buy elsewhere on offer.  Either way I never pay full price!

Home Rowing Machine

I can’t pretend to be a gym bunny at all.  I’d rather do (almost) anything than work out and I’m horrendously uncoordinated in any class.  But if I just do 10 minutes FAST on this I feel utterly fabulous after.

I don’t think of it for keeping fit or even losing weight but the endorphins I get from a quick 10 / 15 minute sprint on this makes me feel BETTER.  A good overall workout. We didn’t buy an expensive one because we didn’t know if we would use it. But we do!

My husband put it together with another friend and a small amount of swearing.  I 100% recommend it (exercise endorphins work better than shopping sssshhhh don’t tell anyone!).
