Beauty doesn't need to break the bank. There are so many great finds on the high street that you don't need to splurge on almost anything! Here I've listed 10 of my favorite drugstore products for under £5.00 for which I would willingly pay more because they work just as good if not better than their more expensive equivalents.

Coconut Oil is high on saturated fats, more specifically medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), which unlike the long-chain saturated fats (found in foods like bacon and cream), speed-up metabolism by working the liver. Therefore Coconut Oil helps the body burn fats faster and benefits weight loss. It also balances the cholesterol levels in the body, lowering the risk of diabetes, heart diseases and stroke.

We all have hopes, dreams, plans about the future, about how we'd like our lives to be. Dreaming keeps us moving forward, aiming further, reaching higher. But sometimes, busy chasing our dreams we forget to enjoy each moment. We start waiting for a special occasion, a day when everything will be better and often when that day comes we're still not satisfied and set ourselves new goals to reach.
Dreaming keeps us moving forward, aiming further, reaching higher. But don't forget to live each minute of every day and enjoy it to the fullest. Wear your favorite clothes and the boldest lipstick you own, turn your music up and sing your heart out, tell the people you love how much they mean to you ...

One of the things I love the most about blogging is that there are both actions and reactions in content. Action: making, creating, styling. Reaction: commentary, reviewing, dissecting. It satisfies both the heady space fashion can sometimes occupy, as well as occupying our two little hands. This week we have a great combination of things you can do and things to think about, and heck a couple of things you can put on your summer wishlist.

I associate spring with soft pastel colors and elaborate light knits. Salmon and mint are two of my favorite shades and paired together create a beautiful and fresh combination. In-your-face neons might be all the rage for SS2013, but I much more prefer the stylish, lady-like charm of pastels. They're so light and calm, harmonically enhancing the appearance without being overwhelming or overpowering. Pastels and neons are like Sade and Kesha. One has a soft, velvety voice and sophisticated beauty and the other one is just out there and loud (sorry to all Kesha fans).

Pencil skirts never go out of fashion with their classic feminine and sexy, yet sophisticated like that enhances a woman's curves. I love the subtle metallic sheen of the one I am wearing, which ads a trendy vibe without being too loud. The salmon floral motives tie the outfit together referencing the light knit I am wearing on top.
To add a saturated, decisive color I chose the deep, dark purple heels and purse. They frame the outfit perfectly, leaving the pastel tones in the spotlight.

On Monday morning, while enjoying my first cup of coffee and getting ready to take on the day I've received the June Glossy Box. I cannot think of a better way to start the week! I couldn't be happier with the products I've received this month, themed around the summer (which I hope will eventually arrive in the UK because God knows I need a little bit of sun in my life! I went a shade lower with my foundation and that must say something!)
I found 3 full-sized products and 2 samples (to be fair they are not even samples just a tiny bit smaller than a full-sized versions).

The diamond tennis bracelet is one of the most elegant, classy and versatile pieces of jewelry. It is compatible with every wardrobe and suitable for every occasion, from a dressy cocktail, to a casual launch, to a tennis game. Yes, a tennis game! It was at a tennis tournament (the U.S. Open in 1987 to be exact) where the string of diamonds, previously known as in-line bracelet, became known as tennis bracelet.
