June and July Favourites: Two for One


I realised, when working out what to include in this post, that I didn’t actually do one of these for June so this is going to be a bit of a two months in one. Also, it turns out that most things work on the new Windows 10 but edge does not like WordPress and my camera is not registering on there so this post is coming from my iPad including photos so may not be the best quality

A while ago I did a pot about travel sickness and someone recommended the ginger sweets from Holland and Barrett so I got a pack of them, the chewy ones as they were the cheapest and said they’re for travel sickness. I also thought I’d give some of the hair care products as I’ve always had a flaky scalp and will always try a new thing for that as most of the others don’t seem to work at all. The couple of beauty products are ones I’ve never heard of seen before but I was intrigued by the one and am trying to find a good foundation. It’s a bit of a mix of everything in here.
