Hope you are doing really well? I'm actually being a little bit cheeky by writing this post, as technically I should totally be focusing on my uni work right now. However, I convinced myself that I had done enough work earlier to warrant me blogging tonight. I'm really attached to my blog right now which is a great feeling and I love the fact I miss it when I haven't paid it much attention for a few days. A while back I went through bloggers block and it was such a horrible feeling to feel like I had lost connection with something I loved so much. However, I think it's something most of us go through and it sure does feel good to come out the other end feeling a lot more focused (Wish I could say the same for uni ha!) Tonight's post might be a bit random, but who doesn't love a good mini? I mean they're super cute and perfect for travelling with... so I thought I would get a few of my current favourites together and tell you a little bit about why I love them. I'm totally gutted that I didn't have my mini burberry lipstick for this post, which I was sent from their Twitter campaign thanks to Sophia. I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. You can also use my social media icons if you would like a more direct response..

Anti bac is such an essential for me, especially as I work and travel a lot. It's not always easy to find a suitable place to freshen your hands up after touching something which might be a little icky! So I always carry around some form of cleansing hand gel. I absolutely love the fact that this particular carex gel smells just like Strawberry laces and for 99p it has to be my favourite mini to carry around in my handbag!
I actually reviewed a gift set from Lancome in January and this little beauty was part of the 'Minature Gift Set' Since January they have been making my vanity look super pretty, but the other week I decided to randomly grab 'Tresor' and it's been love ever since. The day I wore it I had four comments on my perfume and I've had it in my handbag ever since. I'm seriously considering purchasing the full size version as its notes of Rose, Apricot, Peach and Lilly are right up my street!
I actually had this as a free sample from Elle magazine and it's still going strong. I tend to keep this in my handbag just in case I leave my mascara at home, which recently I have been doing a lot due to travelling quite a bit. It's an amazing mascara, which does wonders for my lashes and I'm still trying to work out if I prefer this or They're Real... what do you lovelies think?
High Beam is such an iconic highlighter and I love the fact I have a few mini versions from various Benefit gift sets I've had over the years. I have never purchased the full size because the mini versions last me so well and it's a great little pick me up when you're feeling a little lacklustre mid-day!
I must admit this isn't my favourite cleanser and I was kind of disappointed in it after reading so many rave reviews and articles. However, not everything will work for everyone... so I kind of got over the fact it wasn't that amazing to me. Don't get me wrong it's a very nice cleanser, but it just didn't really make my skin look any different for the price. Despite not being totally head over heals for this cleanser it's still a great mini to carry around in my travel bag.
I know what you might be thinking... What's the point in a touch up stick? but trust me this product has been a life saver on more than one occasion. It's actually so useful and it can be used to obviously touch up, which is great if you have anything planned after work. I also like to use it as a concealer, as it's pretty high coverage, but super creamy and comfortable at the same time. I also have the full size foundation stick, which is my go to winter foundation for when I need that extra bit of coverage.
I hope you have enjoyed this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you below... are you mad about mini's too? I would also love to hear about your favourite 'mini' products :)
Lot's of Love
