Most Worn Things: Summer Edition

Having seen this tag go around the blogosphere a lot recently, and having really enjoyed reading posts on it, I felt excited to do my own and let you know the things I have been reaching for most this summer. I think this might be my first ever tag so here goes and I hope you likey. 

Number 1: Most worn nail polish
This was quite difficult, but in the end it had to be Bourjois' Orange Creation (No. 42). I have 
a particular fondness for this polish not only because it is a gorgeously bright and vibrant 
colour, but also because it caused me quite a lot of bother at my recent internship! 
The formula is really lovely to apply and dries in mere seconds, and application is excellent 
with a lovely brush and a nice texture. 

Number 2: Most worn hair product
This one was easy, although I do have multiple products that I use pretty much every time 
I wash my hair, but I went for the Aussie Dual Personality Texturising and Conditioning 
Gel Spray. This is a great little product because it conditions your hair whilst giving it a 
bit of body and texture. I often find that texturising products leave your hair feeling dry and a 
bit straw-like, but this one is a good balance. 


Number 3: Most worn bag
Not very exciting and it was a tough choice between this and my patent black Ted 
Baker one, but for casual days out and for everyday use I would have to say this brown 
bag with a long shoulder strap which I picked up from TK Maxx a while ago. It's a good size 
so you don't end up carrying loads of crap with you, but I do find myself getting annoyed 
that I sometimes can't fit everything in. I think I'm just a big bag girl at heart. 


Number 4: Most worn shoes
For the majority of the 'summer' I've been wearing these sandals from a brand called 
Staccato. I got them about two years ago and I've lived in them for both summers since 
then. Even though they have the blue stone things they still seem to go with loads of 
different things and they have failed to let me down so far. 


Number 5: Most worn accessory
To be honest, apart from the two rings I wear everyday I don't actually wear that 
many accessories. I go through phases of piling on the rings and bracelets, but this 
summer I've kept it pretty minimal. I have, however, been quite a fan of a dangly 
earring now and again, and this pair from the Topshop sale have been a firm favourite. 


Number 6: Most worn clothing item
Unfortunately I would have to say that this jumper from Topshop is my most worn clothing 
item. It's sad that this is making an appearance in a summer tag but this jumper is just 
the perfect item to wear on those days when it's sunny but not all that warm. It's light and 
floaty enough to keep you cool, but warm enough to keep out the chill if the sun 
decides to hide behind the clouds. I think this is the same jumper I've seen talked about 
a bit on tinternet, it was the perfect addition to my wardrobe, but is starting to look a
 bit 'worn' now, with a few loose thread hanging around!


Number 7: Most worn foundation
Again, this was relatively easy. Although I do tend to switch up my foundation on quite 
a regular basis this always seems to be the Clarins Ever Matte Foundation that I come 
back to (shade 104 Cream). I've had it for almost three months now and haven't looked 
back. I have quite oily skin so was wanting to try this for a while because it promised a 
matte finish. I know some people might be put off by that but I have to say it is nowhere near 
as matte as I expected. Honestly, on my skin, it gives more of a dewy matte finish, which I 
know is impossible, but it is most definitely not completely matte. I would urge you to go 
and give it a go if you've been thinking about it because it is a gorgeous foundation that 
blends flawlessly into the skin and has the smoothest texture I've come across. Lovely. 

Number 8: Most worn blusher and/or bronzer
Blusher would have to be No 7's Candy Pink (22). I've mentioned this in a previous post 
and have grown to love it. I do change my blush quite regularly, but again this seems to be 
the one I keep coming back to. It's the perfect pop of bright pink to add colour to your 
cheeks and a little goes a long way. Bronzer is Topshop's Cheek Duo in Desert 
Sun (technically a blush as well) which I seriously love so much! It is such a subtle 
bronze colour that just makes you look like you're glowing from the inside. 


Number 9: Most worn lip product
I think this may have been the hardest category of them all because lip products change 
upon the hour with me (not literally). I have so many that I love and have about ten different 
lip products in my handbag at any one time, just in case my mood changes. After having a 
long, hard think though I decided on these three (I am so cheating on this tag). Numero 
uno is Rimmel's Vinyl Gloss lipgloss in Be Famous - I'm surprised there's not more around 
about this because it is an absolutely beautiful pinky-coral colour. Second is 17's 
Beehive lipstick, I'm not going to bang on about this because there's loads written about 
it (including on this blog!). And number three is Mac's Vegas Volt. Again, I've done a post 
on this but this is my go-to lipstick if I'm going out of an evening - it is seriously amazing.

Number 10: Most worn mascara
There is no way I could choose just one, so I've narrowed it down to two (it could have 
been so many more, I change my mascara pretty much daily). First is the Avon 
Supershock Max mascara which was actually a freebie in a magazine. It has a massive 
wand which I don't really like, but it gives length, volume and separation which in my 
eyes makes a good mascara. Second is a long time love of mine, Rimmel's Lash 
Accelerator (which could probably do with being replaced judging by the picture!). I don't 
know exactly how much this makes my lashes grow but I cannot stop using it because 
it makes my lashes look really good. The brush is a lot smaller than Avon's, but I like 
that because you can really get into the nooks and crannies. 

Number 11: Most worn eyeshadow 
I don't know if this is cheating, but it would have to be the Naked Palette. I've had this 
for about a year now and it has constantly been in use since then. I do veer off and use 
other eyeshadows occasionally but this has been my go-to for many a moon now. As 
you can probably tell from the pictures Virgin is well-loved, but some of my other faves 
from the palette are Sidecar, Buck, Naked and Smog. 

So there we have it, my first ever tag. I hope you enjoyed even though it's getting to the end of summer. Maybe I'll go crazy and do the winter one if that pops up around the internet. I really hope you're having marvellous days!
