Luxe for Less: DIY Bath Salts

I do love a good ol' bath all year round and especially in this Winter time that we're slowly approaching now, bath time seems like to be the best time.

Usually I'm a bath at night time kinda gal and it's almost like a 'time out' before bed just to relax my muscles and prepare myself for the land of nod. This Bath Salt DIY includes less than 5 ingredients and can be made all from the comfort of your own Chemistry lab, I mean- kitchen. 

Not only do these Bath Salts smell heavenly, they're also aesthetically pleasing and make for a gorgeous decoration in the bathroom too.

The Importance of 'Me Time' | Let's Be Frank

I'm pretty sure I didn't coin the phrase, 'Me Time' so no doubt you already know what I mean. I've always been one to enjoy my own company and I am often bewildered by the responses of my friends and family when I tell them I like to do things alone. Typically 'pair' activities such as going to the movies, or out for dinner I don't actually mind doing alone because I'm not scared of being by myself surrounded by other people and I even sometimes find it very therapeutic.

The Wednesday Edit: The Two-Minute Smoky Eye

Time is of the essence when it comes to my everyday makeup, I generally don't have the time nor patience to be fussing about getting my winged eyeliner looking just right or blending eyeshadows all morning. When I want a fool proof, long lasting eye look there are three products that I turn to. For everyday wear, I generally tend to stick to drugstore brands and products I trust, the last think I want is a smudgy eye running halfway down my cheek or my lipstick start to bleed!

Rest assured, the products I've mentioned here have withstood the test of time- literally! All of these products have passed quality control here at ANJELIQUE HQ and come highly recommended from my makeup collection to yours. 

These three products will guarantee you saving time on your makeup in the morning before work, school or wherever you're headed off to so you can catch those ever important extra 'zzzzz…...'

LUSH Haul | April '15

Happy Sunday my friends!

I hope you've had or are having a fabulous week! I've been super busy over the last couple of days and decided I needed a bit of a pamper when I realised I was out of my favourite bath products- so off to Lush I went! 

I ended up squeezing in two shopping trips to my favourite store and managed to buy a few things! I picked up mostly bath bombs and bubble bars and even snuck in one of their Mother's Day collection products! 

If you want to have a snoop (and I know you do) then please keep on reading!

#OOTD: Denim On Denim

I feel like ever since Brit and JT rocked double denim back in '01 it's a bit of a touchy situation with people, you either love it or you hate it. I think everyone can learn to love it and wear it so long as your denims don't clash and this my friends, is what I have recently discovered. Here are some of my outfit details along with some photos of me being a bit silly because I honestly can't take myself seriously in these fashion-y type photos.

Denim Shirt - H&M
Ear Cuff - Colette
Star Sign Necklace - Lovisa
Watch- Michael Kors

How do you guys feel about double denim, love it or hate it?
Would love to know if you guys would like to see more outfit posts like this too!

Happy Hump Day my friends!

#GetTheLook : Haifa Wehbe/ Arabic Inspired Makeup

Hiya friends!

How's your week been so far? 
I feel like the days are just flying by at the moment, it's already April and then soon enough it will be my 21st birthday and to be honest- that's a wee bit scary!

I've been feeling really inspired makeup wise lately and a few weeks ago I posted this look over on my Instagram and fair few of you said you wanted to see it, so here it is!
Today I come to you with another #GetTheLook makeup tutorial, this one inspired by the gorgeous Haifa Wehbe!  

It's a bit of a long video today, so buckle down- grab a snack and a cup of tea and let's get cracking!

The Wednesday Edit: Top 5 Nail Picks for A/W '15

I'm so excited that Winter is finally approaching us here in the Southern Hemisphere, I'm all about rugging up and wearing 1012923764x layers in the cold Winter air and there's nothing that says 'Winter' to me more than a) Hot Chocolate and b) Dark nails. 

Over the past few weeks I've been collecting polishes and I've finally settled on my top 5 favourite picks for this coming season. I have a mix of dark, moody colours as well as some 'wintery' pastels to set the tone for your 'winter-spiration'. ^_^

My Evening Pamper Routine

 Hiya friends!

Happy Easter to those celebrating this week, I hope you chocolate binged until you **almost felt sick! 

I've really been wanting to do a routine of some kind for a while on the blog and now that time has finally come! 

I like to pamper myself using a routine like this basically whenever I've got a spare few hours and really like to take time out for myself. Phone goes on silent, makeup off and nobody except me and a relaxing bath!

EMPTIES #1 | Skincare & Haircare

Happy Hump Day!

I keep my empty beauty products in a little bag in the furthest corner of my room, in hope that one day it will actually fill up and be worth of a blog post. Ladies and gents, that day have come. 

As I was pulling those empty bottles out and revisiting the 'memories' of different products, I soon came to realise that I may be a secret skincare junkie because that's literally all there is in here! (That and the fact that I don't think I've ever truly finished a makeup item before). 

Anywho, onto the products now! I've also included a mini review of each item and my thoughts on whether or not I would repurchase right away!
