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.

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.
