RECENT FAVORITES

Frank Coffee Scrub blogger
I thought that I should take a step back from the usual outfit posts for once and share with you some of my recent (and few all-time) favorites when it comes to beauty products and accessories. I have many many more products but I chose the ones I use on an almost daily basis during the last month. Below I've added more detailed descriptions with all the relevant links, so here we go! & Other Stories necklace
This stone pendant necklace from & Other Stories was love at first sight and I've been wearing it almost every day for the past month or so. The same happened when I saw these ASOS bullet earrings! I am really not a jewelry person and I don't have a specific taste in jewelry, however when I do find something I like, I tend to wear it for ages.
Topshop glow stick
If you have a careful eye for detail, you will have noticed that my nails are ALWAYS painted. I used to bite them when I was younger and it has definitely become a weak spot for me - I almost feel insecure if I don't think that they look perfectly painted. Barry M is one of my favorite nail polish brands out there - not only does it last for ages, but it's very cheap too. I always go for the Gelly Hi Shine range - this time it is in the color Blueberry. I got my Soigné in Creme Au Beurre nail polish from Birchbox some time ago and the color that I've got makes a very classy finish, plus it's great for the days that you want your nails to stay calm and neutral colored. By the way, I've been getting monthly deliveries from Birchbox since December, I couldn't recommend it more! The third product is the Topshop Glow Stick, which I only got a week ago, but have been using it daily as I love it! After I met Becca Rose at some events, I checked out her 3 Minute Make-up Challenge video and she used this product, which made me eager to try it too.
Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan Liquid
These Topshop chunky oversized sunglasses are probably my favorite sunnies of all time and I wear them every single day. They keep going out of stock, but then getting re-stocked, so I'd suggest you keep checking every now and then! Onto one of my ALL time favorite products EVER..I literally cannot stop talking about this, but it's the frank coffee body scrub and if you haven't tried it, you are missing out. Not only does it tackle all kinds of skin conditions, it also moisturizes your skin and smells great. It literally feels like you are scrubbing your whole body with coffee. A little definitely goes a long way (I usually take 1-2 handfuls 2-3 times per week and I've been using this for a month and it's not even halfway done). The product comes from Australia but it's really not that hard to get it to the UK or Europe. I probably paid around $20 (14 EUR/11 GPB) for the scrub and shipping together, and it turned up in less than 7 days. I seriously cannot recommend it more! They recently released a new cacao scrub, which I'm dying to try as soon as I finish my orange one. Now onto the last product, which is the Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan Liquid. I have never been big on fake tan, but I got this sample sized one in a goodie bag from somewhere and I absolutely fell in love! It came with a tanning mitt so I sprayed the tan onto the mitt and rubbed it all over my legs. The finish was very even, the color looked natural and there were no streaks whatsoever. It also has a lovely coconut smell! Usually the product costs above £20 but I found you guys a link on Amazon where it's half the price. I would not recommend this for your face, but it's my go-to product for the body.

Hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully I've given you some good tips! ♥
