Two everyday staples

Two everyday staples

When it comes to my beauty routine, I am not really loyal. Of course, there are a couple of products that I keep on repurchasing, but only a handful of these are always in my makeup bag. That being said, these two products have become everyday staples for me. First of, there’s Essie wrap me up. This creamy nude color is just the best at making your nails look longer and gives you the look of a great manicure within minutes. It needs two coats to be fully opaque but apart from that it’s absolutely wonderful. My second must have is the Jo Malone wood sage & sea salt cologne. When I got this perfume earlier last year, I didn’t expect it to become a real staple for me. I like to change my perfume each day depending on my outfit or my mood but this one has been my go to nearly every single day. Yup, it is that good! The scent is very woody and totally unique and although it’s subtle, I often get asked about it.

Do you also have a couple of products that you use on a daily basis? If so, what are they? Let me know in the comments below!

    Hi sweetie!

    I totally believe that the body cream is wonderful! I’ve only had samples of the Jo Malone body creams before but each time I promise myself to add one to my wish list!

    I am pretty much the same as you when it comes to nail polishes. I can’t remember the last time I got a bold color! I might need to go through my collection though as I don’t wear 3/4 of it anymore!

    Enjoy your weekend too!

      Yes, it was a very generous Christmas gift – it’s absolutely gorgeous. I use it whenever I need a pick-me-up.

      I used to wear a lot of blue polishes (think Essie Mint Candy Apple, non-stop!) but now I much prefer neutrals. I’d love to see your sorted polish collection!

    This was one of the few Jo Malone fragrances that I did not like.
