It’s empties time again, and I’ve only got a small crop for you (well, at least by my usual standards). Shall we get going?
Haircare to start, and there’s a bottle of the usual, Herbal Essences Bee Strong conditioner, which you know that I love (review here), but I also went through a fair amount of other conditioner too! I like the Sainsbury’s Basics Conditioner for finishing off left over shampoo – it’s cheap and it does the job. There are no frills, but I like the plain clean smell, and when you go through as much conditioner as I do, the litre bottle is quite handy. I also changed things up a little and went for Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine conditioner, which is nice but not as weighty as the Bee Strong. Continue reading
When the weather started to get nicer, and I was still trapped inside revising, I couldn’t help but pick myself up a little treat to make me think of summer. I had already fallen in love with The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry range when I bought the shower gel, which I reviewed here. I loved it so much, I just had to get hold of the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette, so I could smell like raspberries all the time! Continue reading
I’m back! Sorry, that ‘week off’ turned into slightly longer as I whizzed through the last three exams, spent a week gallivanting about Oxford and sleeping a lot, and then came back to the village to hibernate – my body needed a little while to sort itself out after a term of stress and sleep-deprivation… I’m back now, though, so you can expect lots of fun things to come! To kick us back off, here are some pictures of my triumphant emergence from my final exam!
As much as I love you guys, I need to take a week off to focus on the last leg of my finals – I have three exams in the next four days, and I’ve run out of pre-scheduled posts! Blogging is such an escape for me, but at the moment I have to stay put studying and not escape at all…
I will be back next weekend with so many gorgeous things to show you, so don’t worry! Thanks for sticking with me, and I’ll see you on the other side!

I had a bit of a lull in the exams early last week, and took advantage of it by getting dressed up! The long sunny evenings are so beautiful in Oxford, so we headed down to Oxford Castle to take a few pics of my new dress, thanks to FD Avenue! Continue reading
Today I thought I’d show you one of my absolute favourite polishes, which deserves the status of Holy Grail – and if you’re a nerd like me, the name Galahad alone gets it Holy Grail status! This pretty turquoise polish from A England, my favourite nail brand, is perfect on long nails, short nails, on its own, in nail art, and at all times of year, but it makes the ideal summer polish.
Apologies if some of the pictures are slightly out of focus, I wanted to capture the colour more than get perfect photos!
One more week of exams, and then I’m free forever! So here is my favourite lipstick – Barry M TMLP.

Have you seen Zoya’s new summer ranges? They’re ever so pretty, and there’s a lot of variety! The Tickled range is highly pigmented cremes, while Bubbly is a set of sheer glittery jelly polishes. Plus there’s three new additions to Zoya’s Pixie Dust range, which is a very glittery textured polish.
I was lucky enough to get the chance to try one of each range, and plumped for Bar, a champagne chunky glitter, Ling, a creamy mid-blue, and Harper, a jelly pink. Read on for swatches of each! Continue reading
Recently I’ve been trying out this cute little sample of Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel* from my #Oxmeet goody bag. This is such a cult product, and I was really excited to get a taste of the high-end skincare range. Unfortunately, this didn’t float my boat as much as I was hoping – but I suppose that’s good for my purse!
I’m afraid I’ve got none of my usual style at the moment, because I’m pretty deep into my exams – four more to go, and I’ll be done in 9 days! Here’s a really quick glance at a comfy, casual revision outfit. For bonus multi-tasking points, these photos were taken on the way to get dinner, so I didn’t do my usual ‘take a hundred pictures and pick three’, I just went with what we had. This is the most relaxed you’ll probably see me in front of the camera! Continue reading
