July's beauty favourites


It wouldn't really be a Kate's Closet beauty favourites, without being skincare heavy.....for me that feeling of freshly cleansed and moisterised skin is one of life's little pleasures. 

So without further waffling here's what made into JULY'S beauty favourites.......

I'm a magpie for new products, so when I popped into Superdrug this week and saw a range of new Garnier tissue masks, I was drawn in. I picked up two, but today I will be talking about the Garnier moisture bomb eye tissue mask.

Leopard print not just for the jungle ( including my high street picks )


Animal print, especially good old leopard has been about for ages, and personally I am a fan. Don't get me wrong I'm not looking to look like an extra from George of the Jungle, but animal print done right looks pretty cool, well at least I think so, what about you ??

The dress I am wearing here is an old one, picked up from Newlook a few years back now, I always dig it out, come the warmer months, because leopard print never goes out of style, therefore making anything with the print on an investment.

Denim is always a good idea



You guys know this but I love denim, in all its forms, its my default setting, my go to, what I feel like me in.......

Denim is always a good idea..............................

I have been branching out and trying new things, but the addiction is real, it may be to hot for jeans, however a denim skirt works in summer, meaning I can wear my beloved denim without overheating.

What I love about a denim skirt, it's so versatile, just like a favourite pair of jeans, a denim skirt works with everything, T-shirt & trainers, tick, a cami top & heels, tick, a crop top & sandals, tick. I'm sure you are getting the picture now, denim is, and must always be a staple in any wardrobe.

Printkick, stationery for yourself and or business


If like me, you are a stationery lover this post is for you, Printick is a great website for products for your home office or business, selling everything from notebooks and pens to travel mugs. The website has stationery that can be bought singular or in bulk, allowing you to kit out everyone in your business or to offer potential clients/customers as gifts.

You can choose a range of products in different colours and add your own brand or logo, creating a bit of advertising as well as practical products you will use on the daily.

When I had the opportunity to try the website, I found it easy to use, with the helpful option to chat, if needed. Being the massive coffee drinker that I am I choose a travel mug from the travel mug section, and they kindly sent me a goody bag, which is a practical pouch, a screen saver cloth, pen and 3 in 1 adapter.


Printkick review

First up if like me, you have coffee flowing through your veins at all times, an on the go travel mug is a must, and boy is this one good, just make your coffee/tea screw the lid on and go. The cup is cool to the touch on the outside and has a nifty open/close catch meaning this mug does not leak all in your handbag, and it keeps your drink hot for literally hours, I am so impressed.

As for the pouch it is perfect storage for a tablet or small laptop, protecting the screen. The notebook is one of those lovely soft touch covers with a handy elastic to keep it closed, the pen has a nice feel and writes lovely, and how handy is the 3 in 1 cable.

If you are looking for some cool on brand products, I recommend giving Printkick a look.

Feeling proud of myself for even a small achievement



I do not very often talk about my physical or mental health here, and I am not going to go into too much detail, but I have had to deal with various things, that sometimes make certain activities difficult and cause me to just ditch plans, because I just cannot "deal" with that situation.

But recently I have been doing things, little things, but still things that I am proud of myself for achieving, at first I thought it sounded stupid to say I'm proud of myself, for completing what other people might deem everyday simple things....then my husband reminded me, we are all different and we all have different levels of normal, and for me, I have been achieving way more than I did say a year ago. 



In London, I coped with large crowds, boiling hot tube trains, a lot of walking, to avoid said boiling hot tube trains, meeting new people, not having set plans and having our train cancelled on the way home, all everyday for some people but a pretty big deal for me.

So I am going to say it.................

Glam and Style 25ml curling wand review



When it comes to styling my hair, I like to keep things simple. I'm not one for faffing about for hours, I am just to lazy for that.
I have used Straighteners and a chopstick wand from Glam and Style before and found them easy to use and effective for styling my hair without taking yonks, so was intrigued by the 25ml curling wand *. I wear my hair wavy most of the time, so these are right up my street. 



Glam and Style 25ml curling wand review

So how did I get on ? My hair has a natural wave, but I usually like to add to it, with either a curling wand or straighteners. The 25ml curling wand is great for adding big loose waves, to achieve that beachy, messy look. I curled quite big sections randomly to create the effect I was after.

The wand itself is finished in an attractive black and rose gold. I find it heats up quickly and is easy to use, and it handily comes with a protective glove to save finger burns.

The Glam and Style 25ml wand is available from Amazon for just £17.99 on Prime, I recommend having a look at the range, if you in the market for some more styling products.
