Glossybox 1 year anniversary :)

I've been subscribed to Glossybox since June last year so i only missed the first one! 

I love getting it in the post every month, i can't believe its been a year already. I loved lucky bags when i was a kid and this is like a grown up lucky bag!

Here's a look at what was inside:

There is special one year anniversary ribbon and tissue paper..... cute <3

Opening the box ....

Two Lolita Lempicka Perfume samples. I normally dislike the little samples as they're really fiddly but these actually have spray nozzles! I adore the one on the left - Lolita Lempicka, it's sweet and flowery but i'm not too keen on the other one which is sweet pea.

This is definitely a cute extra along with the pink balloon you can see in the box. I love the special touches Glossybox adds with sweets and themed boxes!

Eldora false eyelashes

woah.... these have some crazy red glitter on!
not sure how wearable that makes them but i'll definately use them!

OSMO Berber Oil

This is meant to be an oil used for dry damaged hair and sleek finishes. I'm hoping to use it on my ends and see how it goes!

APIVITA Express Masks

You get two of these :) Mine are orange face masks so i'll look forward to using these! They're meant to be £3.50 per sachet.

Finally, a Noble Isle Shower Gel...

Some people complain about getting shower gels in their Glossybox as they're not exactly a luxury product but personally i like them. Sometimes your lucky enough to get a full sized one and then the smaller ones are perfect to save for travelling! 

Happy 1st Birthday Glossybox!

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
