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 …

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 …

February Monthly Favourites | 2019

The sun has been shining brightly this week and it’s feeling more like Spring (although still cold). My senses are awakened and I’m feeling more inspired than ever. Like finally. I had been waiting for Winter to go to sleep for a good full month now so it’s nice to finally see that wish granted. There’s just something nice about the sun shining down on your face in the morning whilst you’re still in bed because really, who loves dark mornings anyways? I am still playing a bit of blog catch-up but we’re getting close to the end before I start focusing on the new content that I hope to put forward on the blog. I’m rather excited for this because even though I write leisurely, there are topics I want to discuss further as means to inspire the next generation of kids. As some of you may know, I was in Hong Kong for most of February so my favourite products that I’m showcasing here is linked to that. Let’s get started! Featured in …
