Loving lately # 1

An Abundance of Katherines

The Fault In Our Stars was definitely one of my favorite books this year. I'm a bookworm. A total, self confessed can't pull myself off the couch because I love the book so much and nothing get's done until I finish it, book addict. So this was my next book of choice. I'm not far in, and it hasn't hooked me yet, but it's early days.

Maybelline Baby Lips €3.99

I have possibly the worst dry lips of all time thanks to acne medication I was on yonks ago. At certain times, my lips go to total crap, particularly if I haven't been good guzzling the water, and so I reach for this Maybelline stick to give me moisture and colour. It's not the best lip balm ever but it has a lovely colour and so I usually layer it on over another lip balm. There will be a post on lip balms. I own a tonne.

M & S Candle Coconut  €8

I love coconut. It's summery, and yummy, and gorgeous. I picked this up on a recent trip to M & S and liked it so much I went back for another. Smells divine and looks nice too. Job done.

Papaya Gold Paw Paw Lip Balm €7/€8

This caught my eye a couple of weeks ago in Boots and seen as I have the driest lips of all time ( see above) I had to try it. It's a clear gel with not much smell and so far it's doing a good job.

Mac Creme Cup €19

This is my favorite ever nude lippie of all time. I could not be without it. Sounds dramatic but when you find the perfect pink nude, it becomes a staple.

An A & F dupe for the boy?

So this is probably the shortest post of all time to tell you that if you like your man smelling like the Abercrombie & Fitch fragrance Fierce, then get your ass down to Boots. On a recent trip to the mother ship Boots, I stumbled across this Radox shower gel as I was grabbing some 3 for 2's for himself. After a few days of me scratching my head as to why the bathroom was smelling like an A & F shop, I spotted the Radox and had an aha! moment. This stuff smells good. I have loved the men's A & F fragrances since I first visited the store in NYC a few years ago, and so I'm a little smug after finding this shower gel dupe. And at €2.89, that's a total bargain.
