February Empties 2013

February has literally come and gone. I have been so so busy with work and at home and I just haven't stopped. I've been living on caffeine and am so happy the weekend has come around! Finally some blog time, I haven't posted in two weeks and have a back log of blogs and videos to read and watch!

All that aside, here are the products that i've used up this past month:

Boots Extracts Body Butters in almond and bergamot - These are perfect for throwing in my bag and they smell lush and i'd definitely repurchase them, i've still got some other miniatures and full size ones to go yet! I'd compare them to the Body Shop ones just a little bit cheaper.(Body Shop full size is about £13, Boots are £7.50)

Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara - (£11.95ish) I have a huge reserve of mascaras so was glad to break into a new one. It wasn't empty but I was been hygienic and the brush had lost half its bristles, i'd obviously been a little bit violent. I've had this before and I'd buy it again - I actually have the false lash effect fusion waiting to be used so it's practically the same.

Nivea Soothe and Protect Lip Balm -  This was okay to have in my bag but it definitely wasn't anything special.

No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Make Up Remover - £8.50 full size I got this in a gift set for Christmas and absolutely loved it, i've already repurchased it, review coming soon.....

Batiste Dry Shampoo - standard.

Simple Spotless Skin Cleansing Wipes - £2.99 -These are something that I continually repurchase now as when I find something that doesn't break me out at all I stick with them. This past month or so, I've really improved on my skincare routine and will take my make up off with other products then just finish off with these.

Gilchrist and Choames sea kelp shampoo - I stupidly assumed that this was a shower gel and didn't realise it was actually shampoo until I'd emptied the bottle..... whoops.

Boots Botanics Active Plant Extracts Body Wash and Body Butter - These came in a set and were nice to use, they were both really thick consistences, nothing more to say.

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

OOTD: I'll Show You

After quite a long break, I really want to start blogging regularly again. Time really does run away from us so let's see how this goes.... First up, an outfit of the day featuring my favourite store: River Island. Striped Shirt: River Island £36 Black Joni Jeans: Topshop £36 Boots: River Island £50 (last year) I went on a bit of a spending spree a few weeks ago ahead of the Christmas festivities as I wanted to top up my wardrobe with some pieces I could throw on for last minute plans. I like the design of the shirt although I don't think the cut is very flattering. Topshop Joni Jeans are my absolute favourite, the cut and fit is perfect and I think they have used new material lately that will actually stay black and not fade to a washed out grey. I regretted buying these boots last year as I've hardly worn them and contemplated getting rid of them but I decided to pair them up with this outfit and thought they went quite well so maybe I should try

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
