Term is over, hurrah!
Unfortunately, it finished a week after I’d done my empties post, and as I’ve said before (in my extra September empties), I think it’s really silly to move house with rubbish. Empties, however, don’t fall into neat monthly time-zones, and I had several things on their last legs while I was doing my post – so here are a couple more things I’ve used up since the end of November!
Until quite recently, I’ve been a teenage girl, and the one thing that you should all know about teenage girls is that they accumulate make up like nobody’s business! This seems to happen especially if it’s cheap or on sale… Thing is, I now have a lot of much nicer make up that I actually like to use a lot more, and so I’m having a bit of a “spring clean” of my make up bag.

The wonderful Debbie from debelloyd.com nominated me ages ago for the Sunshine Award, which is very sweet considering my dreadful absence last month! Her blog is full of cool things and I especially love her artwork – such a talented lady!
You are supposed to think of 11 facts, answer 11 questions, and nominate 11 bloggers… But I like that Debbie’s skipped the facts, as that’s what I’m going to do too! Continue reading
It’s the last week of term here in Oxford, and that means plenty of stress for me! It’s the week of the pantomime – this term I’m musical director and also playing the Doctor’s companion (not to mention also playing a ninja fairy and the front of the pantomime dragon tomorrow night because one of the cast can’t make it). It’s also the week of termly reports, meetings with the college Principal, catching up one last time with friends, cramming in the last few library hours, and finally packing.
So, on Saturday night, my first night at home, I’m expecting to be pretty tired. I popped into Lush for a bit of bath planning, and came away with some awesome bits to make a relaxing Christmas bath to kick off my holiday. Continue reading
Remember my love for St Ives Apricot Scrub, and how no scrub could ever top that for me?
Well, hold on there just a minute.
I might have fallen in love with Let the Good Times Roll cleanser from Lush. Continue reading
So, it’s been absolutely ages since I’ve managed to do an outfit post. I’ve been holed up in the library until dark most of this term, and rarely seen my photographer before dusk – remind me why winter is a good idea again? I managed to cadge a tiny bit of photo-time just as it was going dark, so here are a few blurryish photos of one of my favourite dresses.
Okay, I’ll admit it, these are yet another magazine freebie. But in my defence, I think that getting sample sizes or even fullsizes for a nominal price is actually a really good way to try out new products, which can either lead to:
- falling in love with something (Benefit Porefessional primer)
- successfully avoiding paying full price for something you wanted but ended up not liking (This Works Daily Boost body scrub)
- stocking up on favourites (L’Occitane hand cream, Benetint, mascara).
