This post is an advertised collaboration with Boots but all thoughts are my own

With a new season, like my wardrobe, I enjoy switching up my makeup bag. My favourite time of year to do this is Summer, I mean if there's a time to get experimental and fun with makeup then it's summer, right? So today I thought I would walk you through the makeup products from Boots I've been adding into my summer makeup routine along with a summer perfume ideal for everyday use and a nail polish I know I will be wearing all summer long!

There's no denying when it comes to all things chic we look to the French. Their
simplistic yet perfected style, makeup and hair reflects the elegant French cities and unique culture. Which is why I and I know many others love to take inspiration to create a little Parisian femininity though makeup looks, style and of course fragrance.

So today in conjunction with the exciting launch of the new Jean Paul Gaultier perfume; Scandal A Paris, which as you may have guessed has taken Parisian inspiration to create a fragrance that's sophisticated and timeless, I wanted to share how I add french touches to my own look. Plus I'm here to share an exciting giveaway for your own chance to win a bottle of the new Scandal fragrance!

Over the past year the beauty and skincare range that is Lacura at Aldi has gone from strength to strength, expanding both their beauty & skincare ranges and coming out with many an exciting Special Buy that often sells out.

Known for their dupes Aldi launched Lacura Purifying Pink Clay Mask back in September 2018 (£5.99) to rival Sand&Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask (£39.00), going on to bring out a matching pink clay scrub and pink clay hot cloth cleanser. This is a range you can still pick up in store (it can be hit & miss on stock levels) or buy online (links below) and as I've tried everything I thought it would be good to give an overview! Below you will find out my own thoughts, plus what is worth picking up from the range!

The other day while mentioned Pixi Wakeup Mist in this summer essentials blog post, I realised how much I enjoy a beauty mist. Whether it's glow enhancing, a setting spray, to cool down or even to keep blemishes at bay, I have a lot of mists that I LOVE!

That said a lot of mists don't offer that much so today I thought I would point you in the direction of ones that do deliver on what they say and are the best of the best I've come across so far!

Ever considered using certain products before bed so they work more efficiently? No, me neither, until I heard that you should apply dry shampoo before going to bed to wake up with grease-free locks come the morning. It makes sense!

But there are more products that work in a similar way, getting to work as you sleep so their job is done on rising, working even better than you had hoped and saving time in the morning. Genius!  

When a beauty product trend appears I'm always a little cautious to jump on the bandwagon. Because let's be honest how many Instagram beauty trends have come and gone in the past year alone?! It's a lot. 

So I like to hold back, generally, well until I realised that most trending beauty products make their way onto eBay for a fraction of the cost! So today I thought I'd create a round-up of just that with popular beauty products and accessories you will have most likely seen on IG or YouTube in the past few months... and the best thing is prices start from only £1.90! 

Occasional hot days and week-long heat waves are on the horizon and with those kinds of days, I feel different products are necessary. From staple facial high SPF sunscreens to refreshing mists to hydrate throughout the day and of course handbag extras that will tackle midday face shine.
