Hi everyone, my name is Sophia and I run Tattooed Tealady, a blog about all aspects of beauty with some lifestyle posts and book reviews thrown in every now and then! I’m very happy to be here today on Sera’s blog writing a guest post for you all, and I hope you will enjoy it!
Must have essentials for beauties on the go!
There’s nothing worse than being out and about and realising you need a touch up, or a nail has broken, or your hands need a good old clean. There’s so many of us beauties who are out and about on the go all day long, working, looking after children, spending time with friends, that things can often get a little hectic. To make sure I am never caught unawares, I keep a few handbag essentials with me at all times!
If I’m out all day the last thing I want is a sore shoulder from a bag which is far too heavy because I’ve piled in the makeup. So if I know I’ll be out all day I make sure I have my E.l.f. makeup mist & set with me and my Boscia blotting papers. The blotting papers are perfect for keeping that God-awful oil at bay, and the makeup mist and set is perfect for refreshing my makeup! And both are super handy sizes which fit in my handbag perfectly.
One thing I am really clumsy for, is catching my nails when out and about. The worst thing for me is to do this and not be able to do something about it. Not because I’m one of those girls who can’t cope if I break a nail; but because I get so irritated by the uneven edge and how it feels! So I always carry around a nail file with me for ‘just in case’ moments! Another thing I can’t do without is hand sanitizer. In this day and age you need it practically everywhere you go. If you sneeze, for example, or if you touch anything dirty, and definitely if you use public transport. I commute to University in North London from home in Nottingham so I have to use coaches, the underground, buses and trains every day I go to Uni. Hand sanitizer is a must!
Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream, Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme and The Body Shop Foundation Lip Butter.
When I am out and about, I like to pamper, too. Pampering can be done anywhere. It doesn’t have to be a luxurious bubble bath or a treatment at a salon. It can be something as simple and treating your nails, nails and lips to a little bit of a spoil. I love the Balance Me hand cream because it has a lovely scent of essential oils and leaves my hands super soft and nourished. The Burt’s Bees cuticle crème smells absolutely divine of fresh, zesty lemons and is a right treat for my cuticles and nails. And the lip butter makes sure my lips don’t get dry or chapped whilst out, and smells (and tastes) divine too! The best thing about all of these is that they are all natural, organic and cruelty free, hurrah!
Just these few products popped in to your handbag before heading out can help save the day if you find yourself in need! I don’t go anywhere without my little handbag saviours!
I hope you all enjoyed my guest post, and thank you to the wonderful and lovely Sera for letting me have a little say over on her fabulous and inspiring blog.
