Bathroom Tour!

P1050172

I’m a little bit in love with my college bathroom – it’s big, airy and full of light. If you ignore the building site just outside the window, this is a gorgeous little haven for bathing. I really lucked out with my room this year! Want to see how I organise?

Review: & Other Stories Blush in Applebloom Pink

This is a product I’ve had for a long while, but I never got around to reviewing it. It would be too much of a shame not to show it to you, because it’s simply one of the prettiest things in my make up bag!

My Final Lush Christmas Haul…

Yes, kids, Christmas at Lush is finally over… With their traditional half-price sale on at Boxing Day, the last few Christmas products have been swept from the shelves, and we’re all left either revelling in our Christmas arrivals or lamenting products never to be seen again.

My stash of Lush products has been seriously augmented in the last week or so, both by Christmas present from lovely people, and by a bit of sneaky ordering of my own…

One or Two more Empties!

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!

Make Up Spring Cleaning!

P1040235

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.  Continue reading

Project 10 Pan Take Two!

I’ve been making a real effort to use up my stash of beauty products recently – I’d love to be a bit more minimalist, and certainly not to have a great big storage box of toiletries taking up space! I’ve gotten on really well (you can see my ridiculous number of empties from last month!), but there’s been a few products that just seem to be endless! I’m not entirely sure there’s not a pixie refilling some of these in the night… Anyway, I thought I’d do another Project 10 Pan to make sure I’m using these as much as I can, and show you which products I’m currently trying out!

Review: This Works Daily Boost Body Scrub

P1030967

I recently picked up this travel-sized tube of This Works Daily Boost Body Scrub with RED magazine. This Works is a brand I’ve wanted to try for a long time, and I’ll admit, it’s largely due to the lovely minimalist packaging and the descriptions of the scents, which all sound very luxurious. This scrub says it contains grapefruit and rosemary to stimulate, and tourmaline (the precious stone) to improve blood flow. All very fancy. On using this, I found that there’s one big pro and one big con, so: Continue reading

Yves Rocher Raspberry Goodies!

A little while ago, I won a giveaway over on Luchessa’s blog! I love Luchessa, she is one of the sweetest bloggers I know and has always been so supportive and friendly – plus her posts are really fun to read. Anyway, she hosted a giveaway a little while ago, and I won! I asked her to send it to my Oxford address, and I was so excited to pick up my parcel when term started…

And with good reason!

Review: Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

P1030161

I recently managed to get a sample of the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask through a recycling scheme my mum joined, which gives you treats for recycling… Or something… I don’t really know how it works, but I know I jumped when she offered me the voucher for this! This mask is a bit of a cult blogger favourite, and I was so excited to try it – luckily, it lived up to all the hype and every one of my expectations. Continue reading
