Empties in Ten #2

I thought I would be posting this empties instalment much sooner since my last update, but it proved to be a challenge in the end to make it to 10.* Initially I was finishing product after product but then everything else just took its time. Despite this post being put together ‘later than expected’, nothing has actually gone wrong. If anything, it just means I am being efficient with my products and to be honest, there are some days where I’m much more lower maintenance than other days so I just need to acknowledge that. Do you as a blogger (or reader) sometimes feel the need to finish up products quickly? Sometimes I do but then I always get so fascinated by how long the last remaining bits of a product can still last! I’ve recently moved onto an almost entirely new skincare routine so you’ll be seeing a lot of skincare empties in this piece. Coupled with that, I have a few makeup essentials here and there plus one hair product. Enjoy! *I say …

Review: Validation Facial @ LUSH SPA

It’s been a hot minute since I wrote a review! In fact, I’m hoping to write a few more for this summer as I have been on and off product-testing. It’s nice to have an affinity again towards trying new products as my skin hasn’t been at its greatest since I come back from Hong Kong, taking the joy out of using new skincare for a while. I’m back to the norm now though or at the very least, close to my personal best. For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my post regarding my spontaneous visit to LUSH for their spa services! Today, I’ll be feeding back on that experience and whether or not I recommend the treatment. Now, it’s important to note that not every LUSH has a spa – something you may have figured out already. It’s still a fairly new concept and as far as I’m aware, is available in the larger cities across the country and around the world. I first started using LUSH about 10 …

May Monthly Favourites | 2019

Oh how I wish it was May again! We are closer to July now but I hate missing Favourites so here it is in all its glory. I’m working on my June Monthly Favourites simultaneously too so you’ll probably end up seeing a lot of favourites in a narrow timeframe. In my last update, I had this idea to make my Favourites post themed from now on and a lot of you really warmed up to the idea which is great! Last month’s theme (technically not really last month, but we can pretend) was Tranquility. The theme for the month of April is: Intuition.

Empties in Tens #1

Are Empties still popular nowadays? I genuinely have no idea since I seldom watch beauty videos on YouTube anymore (I’ve moved over to the fitness corner) but what I do know is that I enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. Reviewing 10 empties at a time isn’t exactly a new idea but I definitely felt I needed more control in this aspect as more often than not, my empties bag gets out of hand and then I end up with an even bigger challenge of compiling the post. To make things even easier, I’m going to automatically throw out any empties that are simply repeats/go-tos and leave behind those that are either new or re-visited. A special shout-out goes to Rachael from Helpless Whilst Drying since she has been conducting this style of post for quite some time and I always thought it was a brilliant idea. What’s even more brilliant is that she collectively records the Empties into an excel spreadsheet to keep track of usage and spending in an …

A Bag Full of Empties 2018

Don’t worry, you haven’t read the title wrong. Here is another one of my crazy-late posts that actually got the chance of passing the finishing line! I took these photos at the beginning of the year but if you have been keeping up, the start of 2019 started a bit shaky for me and quite frankly, I wasn’t in the mindset to want to fully blog leisurely. I love a good empties post/video so it was always my intention to share this – just a matter of when. I’m still playing a bit of blog catch-up at the moment but I’ll be at the top of my blogging A-game soon in no time. 🙂 Now there’s a lot of products to cover so I’m going to keep it short and snappy for each one. Grab a cuppa and let’s get started!
