I often seem to write about high-end products, but there are a few very affordable brands that offer some fantastic products which I just love, and so I thought I'd share my top 5 budget picks with you today!

It's no secret I am a big fan of The Body Shop fragrances. I've raved about several of the scents The Body Shop have to offer here on Tattooed Tealady before, covering everything from their Body Mist range which is exceptionally affordable and great quality for a mist range, to the very affordable Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum ranges which get better and better each year. Every time a new scent is released I can't help but get excited; affordable scents that are just as good as their high-end counterparts, what's not to love?

Whether you read blogs or also write one yourself, one of the things you will soon pick up is a hefty list of brands and products you want to try for yourself. For me beauty blogs are invaluable, because instead of just seeing an advertisement on the television telling me I need a product, beauty blogs offer details reviews from people who have actually taken the time to try those products out for themselves. You can find out whether a product might work for you based on reviews from people with the same complexion, skin-type and needs as you. The majority of brands and products in my beauty stash have been picked up based on reviews from other bloggers, an endless list of brands that blogging has introduced me to.

I'll be honest, I love a high-end splurge and if you delve into my makeup collection you'll be hard pressed to find many budget brands. But if you look closely enough there are some real purse-friendly gems hiding away, products which I have repurchased time and time again, products which have proven to be long-lasting and with better formula's than their high-end counterparts, products which I know I can always rely on because they get the job done. I know a lot of you love a beauty bargain, so I thought it was about time I started sharing more of my favourite budget brands and products with you all - starting with five budget eye picks from priming and correcting to soft shadows and intense liners.

Planning is becoming more and more popular in the UK, but it's the American YouTube channels I am subscribed to which first introduced me to planning and organisation on the level of the popular Erin Condren range. For over a year now I've had my eye on the planners, particularly the coveted Life Planner, but being an American brand I was always weary of ordering and being hit with custom fees.
Over Christmas I decided to take the plunge, taking advantage of a 15% off Boxing Day offer and being persuaded by one of my favourite bloggers and YouTubers sharing her own Erin Condren Life Planner, finding it impossible to resist. I headed over to the site, made my order - personalising my planner to suit me - and waited patiently for it to arrive.

I've always been a bit of a YouTube addict. I fill my watch list with video after video and spend hours wasting away time watching tutorials and reviews. I used to soley watch beauty related videos, but over the past year or so I have become absolutely addicted to watching vlogs. Vlogs from all kinds of different bloggers and YouTubers, from right here in the UK all the way over to America.
Of course, my interests have also changed quite drastically over the past year and since finding out we were expecting a baby, one of my most watched type of videos on YouTube is vlogs from family and parenting vloggers. If I thought I had an addiction to beauty reviews, then this is on another level! So today I wanted to share with you my top family vloggers, the channels whose videos I always look out for and vloggers who I think you should be subscribed to.

I love pamper evenings. Face masks, at-home manicures, a good movie and plenty of snacks (preferably of the chocolatey variety) is my idea of a perfect night in! If you’re an avid reader of beauty blogs then I'm sure you've seen plenty of pamper-themed posts before but I thought I’d throw my two cents into the mix.

I always think the first favourites of a new year says a lot about someone and how they feel about the fresh start that's presented to them when January 1st rolls around.
For me, January 1st and a New Year is all about embracing the year ahead with a fresh, revived and positive mind, and I think that shows in the products I reach for in all aspects of beauty. Lighter shades, fresher scents, invigorating ingredients, products and brands which give me a gentle and soothing push into the next 12 months.
