Soap and Glory has to be my favourite brand to find in Boots. My collection of S&G products is out of control, (it's even won a competition!) I can't help buying the latest products to hit the shelves and trying them out for myself, as I know I won't be disappointed. I'm no stranger to their accessories line and a couple of weeks ago I found a couple of new products to add to my hoard. 
Jumbo Massage Glove - £8.50 can be used on damp skin in the shower with shower gel or body scrub, or on dry skin with body butter or lotion. I believe this product has just been repackaged, but it has definitely become a firm favourite come bath time. It also claims to help with tight muscles and cellulite.
A Brush With Greatness - £6.50 can be used on damp skin, ideally with a little cleanser. Surface-sweep first with the bristles and rinse. Then gently massage with the reverse side to stimulate circulation. Before I bought this I used the S&G face massage mini mitt on days that I didn't want to use my Clarisonic. I feel using a DIY facial mitt can really help to boost my circulation and makes my skin feel super soft after use. A Brush With Greatness is a step up from this with bristles for an even deeper clean and a handle for easy use.

As we are heading into September, it's time to trade the sun dresses for trousers and replace those trusty wardrobe staples to update your already full wardrobe. Here are my H&M High Street picks that I currently have my eye on.
Grey Jersey T-shirt, £6.99 - Every girl needs basic's in her wardrobe, this jersey tee is a great simple essential when pairing with printed bottoms or just when you want to rock the preppy vibe. At such an affordable price you can pick it up in white also.
Black Shoulder Bag, £14.99 - I absolutely love the stitching detail on this bag. This shoulder bag comes with a detachable strap and tassel, great for everyday when you don't need to carry as much around. It also comes in a gorgeous powder pink!
Floral Super-Stretch Treggings, £12.99 - These treggings come in super-stretch fabric with pockets at the back and an elasticated waist, making them so comfortable and easy to wear. They come in so many colour ways if your not so confident in wearing print on your bottom half and are amazing value!
Monocrome Jacquard-Weave Jacket, £29.99 - This jacket is perfect for the transitional seasons. This short, straight-style jacket in a jacquard weave is an ideal way of making a simple outfit look smart. Also comes in red if your more into the aztec trend.
Burgundy Studded Low Boots, £29.99 - Shoes have to be one of my favourite things to buy from H&M, they are great value and last you all season. These ankle boots come in burgundy and black and the studding detail around the front adds to the basic design. These are also an online exclusive, so nab them while you can!

I really enjoy the whole concept of a beauty box. You get to try new beauty products that you maybe wouldn't choose out for yourself and discover brands that you have admired from afar but have never took the plunge to commit to one product. This is the fourth Beauty box from Selfridges, I have managed to get my hands on all of them except for the valentines box which I wasn't really too fussed about, but this festival themed exclusive really won me over. The box contains eleven beauty essentials with a combined value of £110, making it the ultimate summer survival kit. I'm not attending a festival this year but the contents was too good to miss!
The box contains; Sol de Janerio Coconut Water Cooling Mist - This product is one of my favourites from the bunch, anything coconut scented is a hit with me! You can spray this on your face and body anytime to refresh your skin. It delivers a cooling sensation and would be ideal to take on holiday with you. Cowshed Antibacterial Hand Gel - This hand gel smells lovely! and doesn't have the normal overpowering antibacterial scent. It's ideal to pop in your handbag for travelling. My only dislike about it is that it doesn't seem to sink into the skin as quickly as others I've tried. Azature Nail Lacquer in Champagne - Festivals are all about the glitter! This nail polish contains gold, bronze and silver glitter and looks lovely over any nail base or simply on it's own. NPW Mini Scented Hand & Face Wet Wipes - Another handbag friendly product, also without the generic wet wipe scent. NPW Chubby Glitter Stick in Hottest Pink - I'm not too sure when I'm going to use this product, it would be great for parties or fancy dress. The stick contains bright pink and multicoloured glitter and is so easy to apply. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Navy Blue - This eyeko eyeliner is foolproof, the colour is lovely, it's so easy to apply and doesn't smudge at all. The felt tip application means you can control the pen in a single stroke.
Topshop Lip Crayon in Powder Room - I had been wanting to try a Lip crayon from Topshop for a while. This one is in Power Room which is a bright baby pink, the formulation is matte but really creamy! Great to use even when you haven't got a mirror handy. Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge (Plus a complimentary eye colour consultation) - This is another one of my favourites from the box. I haven't tried many products from the brand but this cream eyeshadow is gorgeous! It gives a lovely metallic sheen and would be ideal for a dramatic eye. Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Gloss in Moxie - The formula of this lip gloss is really creamy which leaves you with a high-impact shine and vibrant colour - A real barbie pink shade. Colorsmash Hair Shadow in Je ne sais quoi - Another festival perfect product, Colorsmash temporary hair colour can be applied by rubbing it into the desired section of the hair and sealing it with hair spray. To remove, juat wash it out. It's as easy as that! Violent Lips Lip Appliques in The Warm Rainbow - This is the only product I am yet to use from the box. They would be ideal for parties or a night out. I love the colours, they last up to 8 hours and look quite easy to apply.
As you can see the contents is well worth the bargain price tag! The Selfridges Festival Beauty Box is £25 and is available here. Have you got yours yet?
