January Empties

I'm quite surprised at how many items i've finished this month but also glad because it's a start to me shrinking my current collection to a manageable level!

Beyonce Heat Perfume - I didn't mind using this up as I already have another bigger bottle of this waiting to be opened. We actually sell this where I work so I get a lot of perfumes for a good price. This is a strong scent so more of a night time choice. I prefer the Heat Rush version which is really fruity.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation - My ultimate favourite and I am going to repurchase it very soon. I've finished off two bottles this month as i'm fed up of half empty bottles everywhere. I wear shade 150 in winter and 180 Sand Beige in summer.

Bath and Bodyworks Anti Bacterial Gel in Apple - This was delicious(not that I ate it aha) i'm going to purchase a bunch as mentioned in my February Wishlist here.

Boots essentials make up remover pads £1.50 - Considering the price these were really really good, I would repurchase them in the future but am impressed with the No7 eye make up remover at the moment!

Boots Mini Cocoa Butter - Emma bought me a set of these minature body butters for Christmas as seen here. I never did get round to doing my Christmas Haul Part 2 but it;s definitely too late for that now! I love these body butters, they are really moisturising and excellent quality. I like the fact that they are small too as I can throw one in my bag for when i'm staying out overnight.

Soap and Glory Righteous Butter - LOVE - I love all of the Soap and Glory products and already have a replacement which I got in the bumper Christmas set. It smells nice, It's really moisturising but i'm sure that you all know that already!

Batiste Dry Shampoo - I really shouldn't even bother mentioning this anymore, it's here every month, my all time staple!

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Volume Boost Conditioner - This is apple flavoured and smells lovely! I'm still working my way through the shampoo and it only cost me £1 from work.

Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish - (not pictured, my mum threw it away :/) This was a big bottle so i'm proud of myself for actually finishing it! I love strawberries so anything with that scent is yummy. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent - another staple item, i've never seen a bad review on this and considering I go through one of these every month i'm glad its only £3.99!



  1. Revlon Colorstay Foundations are great!
    I really want to try the Rimmel Stay Matta powder!

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

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

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.
