Tag | Week 3: I’m A Beauty Blogger, Get Me Out Of Here!

(Let’s Finalise!)
Hi Beauts, 
Week 3 Questions:
1) Big congratulations! You won last week’s bush tucker trial. Your reward is the chance to create your own perfume. What ingredients/scents would you choose?
2) Around the camp fire you’re all sharing tips. What is the best advice you can give someone to keep your skin healthy?
3) How do you think your camp mates would describe you?
4) You’re missing your family and friends so to bring a bit of comfort to the jungle you are given the opportunity to send one twitter message (max 140 characters). Who would you text and what would you say?
5) You’ve made it to the final two and are awarded the classic three course meal. What would you choose for starter, main and dessert?
6) You’re out of the jungle and the luxury hotel awaits! What will be the first thing you will do?
7) Now you’re out of the jungle and have all your luxuries back, what would be one product you have lived without and could continue to live without?
8) Challenge – you have the choice of setting the challenge. What is your challenge and to whom?
My Answers:
1) Yay! Well after a mega three weeks in the jungle (how did I cope?) I think possibly something very fruity with powdery base notes. This would surely make me feel fresh and dandy again asap!
2) A bit of an obvious one, as you cannot control your diet in there so I would say WATER WATER WATER as much as possible! Always a winner to keep you beautiful skin clear (tip, it will also help to keep your tummy feeling a little fuller with only beans on offer, boo.)
3) I would hope they would see me as being a very calming, caring and positive character to be around.
4) I would probably say my mum, “Hey beaut, away again haha! Surviving ok (well just) loving the sunshine…please pass my love to everyone xx”
5) Starter: Tomatoe and mozerella Salad / Main: Something chicken and pasta based / Dessert: cheesecake 😉 Thanks ITV chefs 😉
6) Cuddle with the boyf 🙂 closely followed with calling mum and having a shower.
7) My hair tools for sure!
8) A mahoosive hide and seek with all the campmates….last person wins 🙂

So that’s it we have made it through three weeks in the Australian Jungle together. As always all are tagged it’s not too late to complete the series. Please tweet or comment with your links so I can take a look at yours too. 

Thankyou for joining me on this adventure and to Roch and Tash for creating this.

Love and Smiles, 
Hannah xx

Tag | Week 2: I’m A Beauty Blogger, Get Me Out Of Here!
Hi beauts,
              Ok so here we have week 2 of the ‘ I’m a beauty blogger, get me out of here tag!’ Which some of my favourite twitter pals Rochelle and Natasha from Next Route Style Blog created to run along side the series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, which is currently on ITV & ITV2! It’s a really fun post to do and it’s not to late to start, so lets get cracking. Lots of people are taking part!
So, just like in week 1, everyone who reads this is tagged if I haven’t already done so. Lets begin…

Week 2 – Lets continue
1) Firstly congratulations! You won last week’s bush tucker trial and your reward is a makeover from a professional make-up artist. What look would you choose and why?
2) It’s time to wash – ok so it’s not in a luxury shower or a bath but you do get a choice of one soap/shower gel to use. What would you choose and why?
3) Today is the arrival of a new camp mate, yay! You get to decide, it can be anyone this time. Who will you choose and why?
4) It can get a little boring in the jungle and you’re feeling sluggish. What one fitness exercise would you do?
5) How would you create your own jungle fashion style?
6) What is your favourite Australian product and why?
7) Good news, the camp has won the treasure chest hunt! In need of something sweet, each camp mate wins their own cupcake. What would yours be?
8) Challenge – bush tucker trial number 2, ‘the jungle hair & beauty salon’. You’re sitting under a vintage hair dryer and instead of hot air being blasted out you are greeted by 10,000 creepy crawlies. Which creepy crawlies would you detest the most and which ones wouldn’t you mind?
My answers:

1) Hmm, if you’ve won such a prize you might aswell take them up on the offer, right? I would say a flawless yet light face, you guys now I don’t wear much foundation. Then with maybe a green arabic style smokey eye and nude lips….to fit right into the jungle.
2) Ah so hard, i would say a cheeky 2 in 1 so that sneakily wash my hair aswell, omm!
3) Ah mum or my best friend Nicola, both of whom I would have a struggle getting to join me in there i’m sure. However if they did they would be an amazing pick me up and also support me in this traumatic experience ha.
4) I would try swimming in the creak, the perfect exercise to work all the muscles. Only short lengths though, ahh 🙂
5) Eek that’s a bit hard, I think I would just have to embrace the shorts and vest top, your in the jungle after all.I would just try not to worry and enjoy. I would love to snuggle up in one of those fleeces come night time though. 🙂
6) I’m not sure if its strictly Australian but I love Alpha-H Liquid Gold, the perfect skin brightener and firmer. 
7) A white choccy chip with white sponge no question about it ha!
8) R*ts or big spiders….or snakes, I couldn’t cope with that. Defiantely not giving that hairdresser a tip. 

Woo so we’ve got through week 2, now your all tagged! Can you make it through? Please tweet or comment with your links so I can take a look at yours. 

See you next week for the big finale. 

Love and Smiles, 
Hannah xx

Elizabeth Arden – Eight Hour Cream

Elizabeth Arden – Eight Hour Cream (fragrance free)

Hi beauts, 
Ok so once again we have another lip product here. Well strictly this isn’t just a lip care item more of a one tube fits all. In my eyes it’s a bit of a miracle in a tube really which claims and delivers in shaping your brows, smoothing dry hands, cuticles and nails. No, it doesn’t stop there it also treats peeling and dryness from minor burns, windburn, sunburn, scrapes, and abrasions. Plus my favourite use, helps sore, dry or chapped lips. 
There are quite a few pieces in the eight hour range now which is amazing, they do have a higher price tag however when you know it will deliver every time you can justify this. I have tried many a lip product, many have failed, few have been good for a quick fix but this works every time for me. Now we are getting towards winter my lips are getting more dehydrated all the time. If I miss a day using this I always notice the difference making it harder to apply lipstick nicely without dryness peeking through. 
I use this every night before I go bed. I apply quite a thick layer, then let this miracle cream do its magic whilst i’m asleep. Following this in the morning I then apply a thin layer just for an extra little boost. Then when I come to get ready my lips are feeling moisturised, smoothed and perfectly primed to dress them for the day ahead!
This tube is a 50g tube, huge! It lasts so long, I recently took this on my last holiday to Tunisia and it was really all I needed. I not only used it on my lips throughout the day, but on my hands and nails as well as my blisters I got from new shoes! Don’t you just love products like these?
I have chosen the fragrance free version, the original for me isn’t the nicest of smelling but I am quite fussy! So when I found this one instead it was perfect for me. The texture is quite thick, however this is definitely a plus as it helps coat your lips fully making it feel like more of a luxurious treatment.
You can purchase this item from many of the bigger department stores, however it is also stocked in Boots making it very accessible for the majority of you. It is currently priced at £25.00 however there are many festive gift sets out at the moment with travel sized tubes, so if you are wanting to give this a try first one of those would be perfect for you. 
Have you tried Elizabeth Arden?
Do you have a saviour product that you swear by for your lips? 
Love and Smiles, 
Hannah xx
