If there is one thing I am guilty of it's being easily influenced to buy all the new products that come out when bloggers rave about them. I used to be absolutely ruthless and would add everything to my basket and wonder why I had no money left. I'm now a little more sensible as trying to save for a house so really need to calm the spending down. There are just some things i have to make an exception on especially when it's drugstore, one, because it's cheap and two if there is 3 for 2 well then I'm saving money so it would be rude not to. 

I have listed my latest products that I bought because of reading about them on blog posts and well, I just couldn't resist really could I ?!

First up is the gorgeous new Barry M eyeshadow creams, you can see why I bought them right ? Sparkly and just darn gorgeous, I can't decide which one I'm going to wear to my Christmas party night out..... 

I have been lusting over the Urban Decay Cherry palette but as I said I'm being cautious with my money and when I seen the Maybelline Burgundy Bar being blogged about I just had to pick it up, I've not tried it out yet but I am sooo excited to create some nice looks with this.

I've seen this in props on blogs and on Instagram quite a bit and I just can't walk past a highlight without looking at them. I got this as part of 3 for 2 on Maybelline so obviously had to pick it up because it was free right ?! This is in the shade Sandstone Shimmer and I just love everything about it, my face is glowing! 

This has been blogged about, Instagram'd and Youtube'd about sooo much, I wasn't going to buy it at first but it just seemed to follow me everywhere so I had to buy it. I even went back and got it in my fake tan shade now that's when you know I love a foundation! Full review will be coming on it soon, bit late to the party but oh well. 

What products have you bought because of bloggers? I'd love to know in the comments below because I may well do another of these posts :)

Something I find really hard with Blonde hair is getting that healthy glossy look to it and I'm always on the look out for products that will promise to make your hair shine. I was in Poundland doing a little haul worthy of Mrs Hinch and had a look through what hair products they had and seen this. One because it was bright pink and two because I saw gloss written on it. I then seen it was £2.99 and thought I need to try this out and if it's rubbish it's a cute bottle to display haha. 

You can use this before you style your hair or spritz it afterwards, I chose to spritz after I'd done my hair as I hate straightening my hair when there is product in it. I can say this really does work and doesn't make my hair go limp and greasy after a day. It smells devine too but don't let that make you spray too much as I think you can easily over do it with gloss products. 

I'd love it if you left a comment with any gloss products you have used that really work and don't make your hair greasy as I'd love to check them out.
