I love having pamper evenings where you just relax and unwind. In this post, I will show you how I achieve a relaxing pamper evening.
I run a hot bath with a lush bath bomb. The one I used last was Fizzbanger. You can check it out on the Lush website here - https://www.lush.co.uk/product/149/Fizzbanger-Bath-Bomb In this pic the bath bomb was broken so that's why I couldn't take it out of the bag.
When I put it into the water it turned a blue/yellow colour at first. When it was fully dissolved it was bright green. I noticed something floating around in the water so I picked it up. It was a little note saying 'bang' on it.
It has popping sound effects which were cool. I thought this bath bomb was really relaxing and smelt gorgeous. Like I said in previous posts I love the way lush bath bombs leave your skin smelling lovely. They're so soft on your skin.
While enjoying the bath, I thought I may as well read a book to make it even more relaxing. I've been reading 'Safe Haven' by Nicholas Sparks and have been loving it.
A pamper evening isn't complete without a face mask. I used this one called 'Blemish mud' by a company called Montagne Jeunesse. I love these face masks and they are very easy to find in my local supermarket.
Afterwards I paint my nails to pamper myself even more.
It's nice to take some time out and relax. I hope you liked this post! <3

Last night the 2013 VMAs took place. Personally, I thought the best dressed were Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Naya Rivera. Here are pics of their outfits:
I've been catching up with all the gossip from the awards all day but I can't wait to watch it tonight! Who do you think was the best dressed?
I love these nail polishes so I bought another one the other day. It's the colour 327 Grapefruit. It's a lovely bright pink colour. You could almost describe it as neon pink. I love these nail polishes because they give your nails a gel like finish and are long lasting. They don't break the bank either. I already have a review on these nail polishes. I would love if you checked it out - http://rachelsblog295.blogspot.ie/2013/06/barry-m-gelly-high-shine-nail-polish.html
I hope you enjoyed this post.

I decided to do a post showing a collaboration of outfits that I've worn. I've included all these outfits in previous OOTD/OOTN posts. I thought it would be a good idea to show loads of them in the one post. I love doing outfit posts and I'm going to try get loads more up. I hope you enjoyed this post and liked my outfits! <3
I'm the type of person that carries so much around in my handbag. I've been using this bag lately but I cleared it out before this post. Before this it had so much rubbish in it! BTW this bag was only 9 euro in penneys. I've already mentioned it in a post before. Here are some pics of what I carry around in my handbag:
And of course I always carry my phone around with me which is an Iphone 4. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I carry around in my handbag. I love reading these sort of blogposts and watching youtube videos of what people carry around in their handbags! Chat soon...Rachel x
|Like I said there would normally be way more than this in my bag!|
|My Paul's boutique purse that I have been using for ages now.|
|If I'm going somewhere for a while I normally bring perfume with me..The one I have it there at the mo is Lady Gaga's.|
|I always have lip products with me. You can't leave home without them!! At the mo I have No. 7's high shine lip gloss in a coral colour and Mac's creme cup.|
|I'm sure everyone knows what this looks like...Mac's creme cup lipstick. It's perfect for everyday use and you can't go wrong with carrying it around in your handbag.|
|I bring this compact mirror with me that I won before!|
|My bare minerals foundation. I bring this if I'm going away somewhere for a while and need to top up my make up.|
|My bare minerals precision face brush. I bought this one because it's perfect for carrying around in your handbag.|
|How cute is this penguin lip balm that I got!|

I stayed with my sister in Galway for 2 days so it would have been a shame not to do some shopping! I picked up these few bits.
Topshop: I haven't shopped in Topshop for a while. I picked up these 2 things.
This lovely bright yellow tank top. It was 27 euro.
And this gorgeous necklace for only 8 euro.
Penneys: I bought this crop top for only 7 euro.
Sorry it looks a little wrinkled in these photos but it's such a nice top that I will get plenty of wear out off. You can match crop tops with plenty of items of clothing.
