DIY Pretty Work Folders

As most students are I am determined to save as many pennies as I can and one way to do that is my making things yourself. One way I did this was by buying cheap ring binders/folders from a stationary shop for only £1.99 each then decorating them yourself! This is also better in the sense that you have more freedom over how you want your folders to look; for me I just wanted decorations down the side as that was what I was going to see when they were stored away. I decided to decorate mine just with stickers which I bought from Paperchase; they have a fabulous selection and can come as cheap as only £1.00 a packet (also don’t forget to get the 10% student discount!) I went for small woodland creatures for my coloured folders and glow in the dark space stickers for my black ones, cool I know right? Each packet covered two spines of a folder so all together each folder only cost my £2.49 which to me is a nice bargain and also to me they look awesome so I am a happy girl.
What DIY tricks do you have to save money?

Super Savings Boots Haul

Like most people I do love a deal and I was pleasantly surprised in Boots on Friday when I came across 2 deals which saved me just under £10 and involved things I actually needed! How fabulous?!
The first deal is if you spend £10 or more on Rimmel products you get their Scandal Eyes Flex Mascara for free. I went into Boots needing a new foundation, pressed powder and mascara so I nearly weed myself at this offer! It’s not hard to spend £10 on any make up products as well so I thought it was quite a generous deal as well and also in that on its own the mascara £6.99 so I was happy with that. 
Second deal of the day was that Boots have 3 for 2 on all facial and body products I think it is and it includes most brands so you have a large selection to choose from. I needed a new facial scrub and hand sanitizer as the tube has been stressing me out more than I thought it would with hygiene and that. I got the Garnier Fruit Energy scrub because my sister had recommended it to me and as well as that it smells AWESOME! Like seriously after using it I want to eat my face, so good! Along with that I had heard amazing things about the Soap & Glory hand sanitizer which also smells fabulous so that fell into my paws with the legendary Sugar Crush Body Wash which actually smells heavenly! I have used it as well and it just makes you feel so good and refreshed so I do recommend this product to anyone who enjoys sweet smelling products.
So overall a very happy Hann left Boots on Friday, if you need some more beauty supplies I do recommend to go and check these deals before they are gone.
What deals have you loved recently?
I haven’t mentioned any music recently but I do want to start to again and a band I have been obsessed with at the moment is London Grammar so go check them out, ear-gasms all around!

Sugar Violet Kisses

Wearing Sugar Violet
I am a bad person I know and I haven’t posted in ages but I am still getting used to university life! A quick post here reviewing my latest treat which I bought off the lovely Helen from thelovecatsinc in her blog sale and I am in love with it; my mum has Laura Mercier lip stain in Red at home and I was obsessed with it so  when I saw this one for a small price of £8 I had to have it. It’s called Sugar Violet and it is a lovely plum colour which is going to be perfect for the winter; I am a fan of lip stains as I feel they last longer than lipsticks and they are generally easier to apply. I did get this discounted but Laura Mercier is one of those brands where I would be happy to pay a little more for as all of their products are amazing. I am sure this is going to be my stable winter shade.
What is your favourite winter lip colour?

Current Life Favourites

Why hi there guys, I made a wee video yesterday about what beauty products and other random things I have been loving recently. As I am a student now I have only included things which are inexpensive but are at the same time a quality product so if you are still in school, a student (like me!) or are just trying to save a few pennies then this will be helpful to you.

Maybelline Baby Lips, Original I know!

Baby Lips in Peach Kiss
Baby Lips Pink Punch
Hold on to your hats people, here comes a review on Maybelline’sBaby Lips. Original I know right? I know every beauty blogger and their dog has used these by now and had their say on them but I want to throw my thoughts into the ring.  I actually really like this product; you get what it says on the tin (or tube) and they are cheap as chips. Normally £2.99 each or buy on get one half price at Boots so £4.50 for two, so really you can’t go wrong! They work just like a lip balm/chap stick in that you just whack it on without a thought and it hydrates your lips but on top of that the Baby Lips I bought also give you a slight tint to your lips. They are great just to throw into your hand bag or school bag as something you can apply on the go, even without a mirror or using the selfie camera on your phone. I do recommend them for anyone who is a little afraid of applying lipstick in a rush (slowly raises hand) or someone on a budget who wants something cheap yet affective to wear every day…actually I recommend them to everyone (plus the packaging is caaaute as well).
What is your favourite lip product at the moment?
