For the past few years, Essie has been my go-to nail polish brand due to their wide range of shades and affordable price tag.

I now have quite the collection of Essie nail polishes which take pride of place at the front of my nail polish stash and get used often. However, with endless Essie neutral shades amongst glitters and dark hues for winter, I surprising hadn't tried one of Essie's most coveted nail polishes shades and the only shade Queen Elizabeth wears on her nails!

Along with eBay offering some of the most affordable makeup brushes the platform also boasts some of the most unique. This is something I've discovered over the past few years and I now own countless unique & stunning makeup brushes that I don't think I'd be able to pick up anywhere else. Especially at the low prices I find them at! 

I don't know about you but I find the now normalised rate of new beauty products to hit the shelves each month quite overwhelming.

It's not to say that I don't appreciate so many exciting new products being available but it's easy to not know what to treat yourself to when you head into Boots, or similar. So having tried quite a number of new products recently and being impressed with many of them I thought I'd share 5 beauty, hair, skin care and body care products that I think most will get on with.

Call it a delayed spring clean but recently I've been having a major interior sort out and refresh. From a few new bits to a bargain new sofa I've been moving things around whilst also heading to Pinterest for some inspiration. 

This all led me to want to share with you a few inexpensive decor accessories... which if you aren't that interested in could be used as blog props inspiration or even ideas for affordable gifts for an interior enthusiast. 

Believe it or not, I'm even savvier when it comes to homeware because it can all get a bit pricey, so I thought I'd share quite a few of my favourite home-y pieces under £10. Hope you find something here!

Roll My Eyes Rose Gold Framed Print The Range £2.99
The Range is one of my go-to budget home decor stores. If you are looking for a home bargain, whether that be inexpensive art, photo frames, lighting or accessories you will most likely find something in The Range! In their current sale, I picked up this sassy AF copper framed art print which to be honest was worth it for the frame alone - I mean you can't get much better than £2.99, can you?! It hasn't found a home yet but I'm sure it will be going on a shelf somewhere. I still can't believe the price of this and other art prints and canvas's in The Range sale right now! Available both online in the link above and in-store.

Dream Word Ornament Aldi £5.99
I recently picked this up on a whim when checking out the Lacura skin care range in Aldi and decided I couldn't leave without it. Perfect for any room of the house especially on a bedside table this will suit most decors. As I haven't seen anything similar on a budget I was really pleased to pick this up and will pick up more should Aldi decide to expand on them. Basically the budget version of the West Elm signs! Similar gold 'Fabulous' sign here.

Gold Wire Storage Baskets (set of 2) Asda £6.00
Wire baskets are having a bit of a moment, aren't they? But annoyingly they can be quite pricey! Thankfully I came across these in Asda surprisingly in the bathroom accessories section with the toothbrush holders and towels. Coming in a set of 2 I was really pleased to see these at only £6 and found I really liked the gold finish. I personally think these are too nice for the bathroom (I could imagine them filled with Lush bath bombs though) and prefer to have them on display on an Ikea shelving unit I have in my open plan living room/dining room. Availabe both online in the link above and in larger Asda stores.

Decorative Floral Garland ASOS £8.50
I initially picked up this garland to use as a blog photography prop as it was just so pretty. But on seeing it in the flesh I decided it was too nice just to use as a backdrop and now have it on a shelf in my living room. This is surprisingly realistic looking with almost a dusty feel to the spindly branches and can be bent into any position'shape you wish, making it ideal for wrapping around something like ladder shelves or a bed headboard (it's pretty long). A fairly inexpensive home decor find that I really love!

Beautiful Unframed Art Print John lewis £5.00
I'm pretty sure if you were after affordable art prints you wouldn't think to look in John Lewis,. However, John Lewis actually offer a fairly wide range of £5 40x30 cm prints! These, of course, come unframed as you would expect but really are worth checking out. My favourite print is this simple typography art print which I really love. For John Lewis, these really as such good value for money and I really recommend checking out the full range here (searching from low-high) if you are after some affordable prints for your walls.

Matalan Double Sided Mongolian Cushions £10.00
With a new sofa, I wanted to find some affordable large cushions that would be suitable all year round. With a grey sofa I knew I wanted some blush pink cushions and after looking around I went with the popular choice of a pair of shaggy fur cushions. These are not only extremely comfortable but they look good are well filled and even double sided. I'm so pleased with how these look against my sofa and think they may come in handy as blog props in the future due to their texture. One of my favourite new home buys here other than my dreamy sofa of course!

Bird Shaped Gold Scissors eBay £3.49
To stationery now with a pair of stunning dainty scissors. You really wouldn't believe these are from eBay, would you? Perfect for either on a desk or even in the bathroom these are such lovely looking scissors that deserved to be out on display.

You can also find the cute little Miss Etoile Hearts & Eyes Trinket Dish for £5.95 here

Decorative LED Mistletoe Tree Amazon £9.95
Lastly, I had to include this maybe slightly festive themed decorative tree but because of how inexpensive it is! Now as it's technically a light up mistletoe bush you may be instantly looking at it as a purely Christmas decoration... however I actually think it's not that obvious so I have it out all the time as when it's lit up it looks incredibly lovely. Each branch is totally bendable and the little berry lights are a nice warm white. Of course, the price is so low because it is a seasonal item so I expect it to raise as we get closer to December but for now it's such a bargain.

As I secretly have quite a passion for interiors especially on a budget I really have enjoyed putting this post together, so let me know if you want me to provide a bit more home decor/interior content. 

Also, let me know your favourite home accessory here! 

Fee xo. 

When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, I own quite a lot. My favourite being either highly foiled shades or warm mattes, so as you can expect I'm a fan of the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette (£39.50). The stunning compact boasts 12 warm toned matte shades all of which I make use of. It also helps that Urban Decay shadows are buttery smooth, blend well and perfectly pigmented!

However a few weeks ago a very much budget matte eyeshadow palette in comparison caught my eye, it instantly made me think of all the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics shades I love and so I had to buy it to compare!

I don't know about you but a highly pigment makeup product from the drugstore/high street never fail to impress me. I'm not even talking a solid opaque sweep of colour here but something that makes you 'ooo' at how bold and stunning it is. 

Which is why I thought it was about time I dedicated an entire post to some of my most pigmented beauty favourites. These not only offer superb pigmentation but are spot on beauty products in their own rights, being some of my favourite products on my dressing table.

As a total beauty enthusiast, I really appreciate when higher priced beauty brands put together kits and collections at lower special prices. Not only does it mean I get to try much more from the brand in one go but it means there's a big saving to be had. Especially when you add up what everything would cost individually at full price.

So this is why I love to feature one-off kits from QVC in particular!
