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 haven’t done a monthly favourites post for a little while, but this month there’s lots of things I’ve been loving! Continue reading
So, I’ve never had a beauty subscription box before, although I’m sure I must be the only blogger not to get the thunk of goodies through the door every month! Luckily for me, the gorgeous people at Birchbox and Glossybox popped their March boxes into the #Oxmeet goody bags, and I got my first taste of the high-end sample world! I’ve decided to battle them out to see which one made its way into my heart (and maybe my budget)… A warning, this is a very long post! Continue reading
Just a quick review today! I picked up Lush’s Whoosh temple balm in the half-price Christmas sale. This is supposed to be a headache-soothing balm which you apply to your temples – they claim it perks you up and keeps you awake! Continue reading
Well, the 1st of April means it’s my birthday month! Here are some bits and bobs I’d love to find all wrapped up for me (if I were a very lucky girl!)… Clockwise from left:
How gorgeous is the new Nina Ricci perfume? La Tentation de Nina is a beautiful new addition to my perfume collection, and it smells just as good as it looks! Continue reading
Wow, January’s gone by so fast! The end of the month has really snuck up on me, and it’s already time for empties. Want to see what I’ve been using and finishing in the last few weeks?
The first couple of photos are things I finished at home, the rest I have finished in Oxford. Rather than store everything until the end of the month, I decided to photograph things in twos and threes, as they were finished, and then ditch the packaging so it wasn’t hanging around for ages! That’s why things aren’t in neat categories, but just in random groups…
Just a quick little review today – one of the perfumes from Next, the Milan eau de parfum. I was lucky enough to get this as a Christmas present, and it is a really gorgeous scent that will be perfect for spring. Continue reading
I’ve never actually done a favourites post before, but why not start now? I’ve been using some products this month that I just want to rave about (even if I’ve done so before), so I’ve wrapped them all up into one simple post!
The cold weather, combined with very hot central heating, leaves my skin completely gasping for a drink! I’ve been slathering The Body Shop Wild Rose hand cream on my hands whenever I can. It’s a nice formula – not as perfect as L’Occitane’s hand cream, but still nice – but what sells it for me is that gorgeous rose scent. It’s lasting without being cloying, and definitely not old ladyish! For more general moisturising, I’ve been liking NSpa Passionfruit body butter – not a very Christmassy scent, I know, but I still like it, and this really does a good job of keeping dry skin at bay.

Christmas is coming, ads and sales are everywhere, and I’m starting to dream of what wonderful beauty things I’d have in my cupboards if money was no object. Continue reading
