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 …

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 …

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.
