'to me, from me' treats this Valentine's Day!

Photo wishlist of Valentines gifts for her

1. Chain front barely there sandals (River Island £50)

I love these a little too much! The barely there sandal was a classic in 2014 and this year River Island has updated the trend by adding a gold chain across the front of the foot. I really like this extra touch and they are instantly more glam. How nice would these be with a pencil skirt? The colour is great, I try to always go for neutral shades as they are easy to mix n' match with things that I already have in my wardrobe. 

2. Real Techniques Bold Metals makeup brushes (Boots £10-£25)

I have been stalking the Boots website since the release of these new Real Techniques brushes! I am trying my best not to get sucked in by them though as let's face it, theres more to a makeup brush than the look of them. I could imagine the full set sitting on my dressing table (heart eyes emoji) but I wouldn't like to add up how much that would be altogether! I have the standard RT brushes and I have happy with them... at the moment haha.

If you prefer the original Real Techniques brushes then I have reviewed a few here

3. Detox Pamper Pack (Boohoo £7)

I like to have a full scale pamper night every now and again with face masks, body scrubs, nail polish etc etc, The works! I came across this little kit on the Boohoo website and thought that it would be a great gift (for yourself) if you do a lot of traveling for example. It is compact and everything you need is in there. Here's whats included...
  • 1 x Cucumber & Aloe Vera Face Mask
  • 1 x Wild Rose Revitalising Eye Pads
  • 1 x Jojoba Creamy, Revitalising Leave-in Hair Mask
  • 1 x Aromatherapy Intensive Foot Cream
Not too bad for £7 huh? Also, have you ever heard of the Radox bath salts muscle soak? It. Is. Everything. I saw in last in Tescos for £1 a box, highly recommended! 

4. Vaseline Rosy Lip Pouch (Superdrug £4)

I always like to top up my lip colour when I'm out but I always forget one thing... a mirror!  This little compact set would be great for your handbag and using on the go. I also like those lipstick holders you get with the mirror in them... the next time I see one of those I am definitely buying! Guess work with a bold lip colour like Rebel just doesn't work very well haha!

5. Blushing Hearts blusher (Makeup Revolution £4.99)

I'm not going to lie, I haven't actually tried these but plenty of bloggers have and any review I have read has been positive! Number one, they look really pretty and they are great if you want to give yourself a little treat that you know you won't be disappointed with. Number two, there are also highlighters and bronzers in the Blushing Hearts collection which I am dying to get my hands on. I have heared that you can buy Makeup Revolution in the larger Superdrug stores so head down there first to see the different shades first hand.

6. Antigua Luxury Fragranced Candle (Next £10)

Next candles (aside from Yankee and Jo Malone obviously) are my ultimate fav. I am currently burning a pear scented one which I got in the Boxing Day sale for £3 and I am mega impressed. I picked out this one as I read the description and really, I mean really wanted to be laying in 30 degree heat somewhere with some coconut water in hand. Next describes the scent of this candle as...

"A tropical fruity aroma that blends mango with sun drenched papaya & fresh pineapple"

COULD THEY TEASE ANY MORE? I'm buying it the next time I'm in town. Freezing cold and frosty weather outside, the Bahamas insides. Yes please.

You can also get this scent in the form of a reed diffuser if you prefer that. I would assume that there would be a stronger fragrance from one of these.

7. Too Faced Sweetheart Beads Radiant Glow Face Powder (ASOS £26)

Sayings it's Valentines and all that I suppose I'd need to include something a little special. These aren't just normal shaped pearlised beads, they are HEART shaped! Even though this product comes with quite a hefty price tag I would expect that it would last a long time. Highlighter isn't something I would use a lot of as it only takes a swish here and there to brighten up your face for a natural glow. Click here to see the product up close. It's very very cute.

And there you have it! 7 things that would just make my Valentines. Who needs roses and choccys eh?

  1. I've bought myself a contour brush from RT and some Mac makeup, who needs roses and chocolate indeed!

    Sammy xo.


  2. I love the design of the Too Faced blushes they are gorgeous. Instead of gaining a Valentines Day gift from another half I've treated myself to a few beauty goodies and some new clothes - I feel like a winner this year! :p
