Bit of a weakness...

So it appears that I have a bit of a weakness for Barry M nail varnishes. I just love them! My collection just gets bigger and bigger but I can't seem to stop buying them. I love the pastel colours they have like Peach Melba, Mint Green and Berry Ice Cream :) I've even got my eye on a new one at the moment, it's a glittery pink that I can only seem to find in Superdrug! I think I've worn Barry M practically everyday for the last 3 years! It's definitely part of my daily essentials. 

There's a few other things that I recently can't live without. I only got No 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream  last weekend and I am already obsessed with it! I've been trying to find a moisturiser that isn't too greasy and this literally is the most perfect cream. It comes in three different types depending on your skin type so I went for the middle one as my face isn't really too dry or too oily, just in need of some tender loving care now that winter is over. It goes on really nicely and doesn't leave you feeling like you've just slapped a layer of junk on your face! It also smells nice too which is a bonus :) I've found that it's provided a really good base for my make up too. I use a powder foundation so if my skin is dry then it's really noticeable that my skin doesn't look smooth. This cream made my skin smooth and soft from practically the first time I used it, I'll definitely be buying it again :)

A staple that is always in my handbag is Vaseline. It is a must have for me as I hate having dry lips. I'm also not a massive lipstick/lipgloss wearer so I love Vaseline's Rosy Lips as it has a slight pink tint to it. It adds a bit of colour without being too over the top which suits the minimal make up look that I have going on a the moment. 

Are there any must haves you can't live without? Discovered anything new recently that you now love?
