My First Project Pan

For someone who loves compiling Empties posts, I can’t believe that I’ve never planned a Project Pan and documented it! In my mind, there were a few items that I had wanted to empty out last year or at least use more of however this never got achieved so again, some of the items remain collecting dust. Nevermind being a beauty blogger – I mean I am not really invested in that title, but as someone who has spent money on lots of items, I ought to be more responsible in using up the products unless it is really bad. So here’s my attempt at being more responsible this year and less of a hoarder! The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 60% left to be used I don’t know what it is but I just don’t naturally reach for this. It took me a long time to open this and when I finally did, I didn’t find myself being excited enough to use it. It’s not actually a bad product per se but is …

Products & Brands I Want to Try in 2020

I don’t think I have written this type of post before which is probably why there are still so many products and brands that I haven’t tried. (Baring in mind, a good half of them are also unavailable to me although Boots have recently expanded their range – more below.) The brand I tried out the most last year has to be Revolution – both their makeup and skincare. I am looking to write about their skincare line once I have gotten through the entire haul but for now, let’s tap into other new products and brands that I want to try out at some point this year! Fenty Beauty – the Gloss Bomb in particular I used to get a Christmas gift set for myself every year without fail. I didn’t bother with that in 2018 however in 2019, I saw that Fenty Beauty had the gloss trio which I so badly wanted to get. I did actually see it in-store one day in late-October/early-November and should have gotten the hint to get it …

Empties in Tens #3

I’ve been splitting my time living between two different places from weekdays to weekends so naturally, I have two collections of products per place as well as two different beauty routines. You can bet that collecting empties has been a little awkward and inconvenient but I’m making it work. This compilation is not even half of what I’ve accumulated so far! The plan is to ultimately write about it all before the end of the year so that I can successfully throw everything out and start 2020 on a clean slate. Let’s begin shall we? + Would repurchase– Will not bother again= Neutral/Indifferent + MAC Cleanse Off Oil– Sukin Cleansing Gel+ Witch Toning Lotion+ Poppy Austin Hyaluronic Acid= Clinique Vitamin C Capsule+ Clinique Moisture Surge+ Clinique Dramatically Different Gel+ (Jumbo size)+ Bioré UV Gel Sunscreen+ LUSH Sleepy= Wilkinson’s Sword Quattro Razor Blades+ Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light+ Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo– Mizon Rice Real Cleansing Foam *Please note that some of the empties are not pictured as I have thrown them out prior …

October Monthly Favourites | 2019

Fall has really come through and I’m feeling the cold just a bit! I do love this season though and just the other day, I was able to rummage through the autumnal leaves in my new leather boots (cue favourite for next month’s post). I hope you’re all wrapped up warm? I haven’t written a Favourites post for a good couple of months now so I thought it was about time that I told you what I have enjoyed as of recent! Let’s get started shall we?

Products I Want But Don’t Need Therefore Won’t Buy! ft. Joyce

It’s no unknown fact that the beauty industry is flourishing right now. Great for us as shoppers because there’s choice (although perhaps too much choice); horrible for businesses as competition gets more fierce unless you’re Jeffree Starr. Today, we’re going to be doing something a little bit different. I’ve been blogging on and off for about 5 years now and I have never done a collaboration post. Well, things are about to change soon. Me and my good blogger friend Joyce @localgirlforeignland started talking and the idea of a collaboration post came up! You can follow Joyce here and here. I’ve never actually posted an anti-haul before on the blog so that’s what we’ll be doing today. Feel free to leave in the comments what products would be in your anti-haul! ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Please note that I do not own any of the images. Each image belongs to its brand respectively. Suqqu Pure Color Blush – retailing at £34 I can’t quite remember when I first heard about this brand – I think quite possibly via …
