Is the Missguided £1 Bikini A Real Bargain

If you're an avid fast fashion buyer or you like to stay in the loop, you would have seen that Missguided released a £1 bikini: a simple black triangle shape bikini ranging from sizes 4-24. The offer is for a limited time only; releasing 1000s onto the website each day. For some, this might sound like heaven. A cheap bikini perfect for Summer: a great staple. It even beats the prices of Primark and other brands promising cheap affordable clothing.

But how much of a bargain is this bikini for the consumer and the producers, when the bikini is only £1. This brings the question, how much is it really costing to make it? Are they really making a profit or are they shortchanging the suppliers and the workers behind that £1 bikini? When we break the bikini down it's all about polyester, which is largely unsustainable and harms the planet massively. So, if it's really worth that one photo of you on an inflatable in Greece then you do you, but for the rest of us, I think it's …

Under £35 Gift Guide - For Girls

Hello everyone 

 So this actually my first post on anything Christmas related and seeing that I am an absolute lover of Christmas I have decided to try and a do a few posts around the idea of Christmas whether it is gift guides like the post I am doing today or whether it is DIY Christmas decorations etc. If you have any suggestions then please feel free to comment them down below.

Anyway getting onto this post, I wanted to do a gift guide as I was in Superdrug the other day and I was making a mental wish-list of the things I would love to have this Christmas. This led me to decided to do a gift guide specifically for girls. Now I know the title says under £35 but the gifts will be around £25 but there will be a more indulgent gift that is around the £35 mark.

I have chosen a few gifts that come from all different shops such as the Body shop,and Superdrug. I will be mentioning presents that you could use as stocking fillers or just main presents. All of the presents will be either skincare or makeup related. But if you want a post on non-beauty gifts then please comment down below and it could be my next Christmas post.

Firstly, the Body shop I was pleasantly surprised by the Body shop this year as normally they haven't gone to a lot of detail in the past couple of years but this year they seem to have gone full out with their products.

Stocking Fillers: 

Jingle Gels Sleigh £8 - First off I love the name, for me I am already sold. This is a set that includes 4 minature shower gels. They come with Satsuma, Moringa, Strawberry, and Mango which are a good combination as they can be used in Winter as well as Spring. In my opinion this is a novelty present that you can guarantee will be used.

The Jolly Lippy Lolly £10 - Again the name and the packaging is just beautiful, this is basically 5 of their lip balms which I absolutely adore. The good thing about this is that it just has a novelty to it. The present could be given to kids or teenagers as essential they are just good nice smelling lip balms.

Main Presents:

Frosted Cranberry Treat Box £7 - This is a little gift that includes a shower gel, body butter, and a Crinkle bath lily. This is quite a cute present and would perfect for anyone really. The bit that I like the most is the scent they do this in a variety of scents but in my opinion the frosted Cranberry is my favorite although the apple on is good.

Glazed Apple Tin of Treasures £17- This is more of an expensive gift compared to the others, but you definitely get your money's worth for what is in the set. First off the set comes in a silver apple like tin which to me is just adorable. Inside there is a shower gel, body butter, body lotion, body polish, and Crinkle bath lily. This present would again be suitable for any ages and could be quite good as a work present to a fellow colleague or even a friend but it is definitely a present I wish I could get.

Coconut Ultimate Luxuries £35- This is one of the £35 gifts I have found, this would be perfect for a special someone or a dear friend. The set includes a shower cream, body butter, body scrub, body milk, beautifying oil, and a Eau de toilette. The set comes in coconut (which just smells amazing), shea, and Strawberry.

Superdrug this year have come out with a variety of gifts suitable for all ages. All of the presents are inexpensive and currently have some amazing offers on the presents. So I would definitely get them now whilst the offers are on

Stocking fillers:

Models Own Hypergel Nail Polish Gift Set £15- This is a slightly more expensive present but it includes 10 mini Models own nail polishes that are the perfect gift for a teenager or just someone who is really into nail polishes.

Exquisite Eau De Toilette £5- This is a little stocking filler that is a nice little present just to give to someone. The perfume has quite a warm scent with a hint of Jasmine. The perfume is nice and for what you get it is definitely worth it.

Main Presents:

Simple Petite & Simple Mini Collection £4.50- This is the perfect present for a teenager as it includes 3 miniature skincare items, it has a toner, facial wash, and moisturizer. This is especially good if you maybe want to try the products but do not want to purchase the full size items.

Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Herbal Therapy Benefit Set £18- This is more of an expensive present but it is definitely worth it. The set includes a body cleanser, body cream, and body milk. This present would be perfect for possibly an older person as I wouldn't say this is the best gift for a teenager.

Sleek Makeup Party Box Gift set £30- This is more of an expensive present but it is definitely a good value for money. This set offers some of the best products that sleek do and offers a selection of products. It includes the Arabian nights palette, blush trio, highlighting palette, full lash mascara, and eyebrow stylist.

As you can see there are a lot of presents this year to choose from, I have had a hard time choosing the best ones to get that are good value for money and are just good presents altogether. On Wednesday I will be sharing with you a shampoo that has saved my hair and on Friday I will be doing a brand focus on Maybelline

Thanks for reading!
