April Empties

A little bit late this month, time is flying by.... I cannot believe that I am going on holiday in 5 weeks :O

I'm doing really well with using products up at the moment!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Wild and Tropical - The BEST dry shampoo out there.

Trevor Sorbie Beautiful Volume Dry Shampoo - This was nothing special, i've tried numerous dry shampoos and none of them have compared to Batiste.

Trevor Sorbie Beautifully straightened Conditioner -  This was a good conditioner and I probably would repurchase it in the future.

Britney Spears Fantasy Body SoufflĂ© - The perfume of this is my favourite but I never find that lotions that come in perfume sets are really any good. As this was a souffle it was better than most and it did smell nice but i've used better.

Soap and Glory Hand Food - LOVE. One of the best non-greasy hand creams and who doesn't love Soap and Glory?

Radox Shower Smoothie - A miniature that I picked up when we stayed in London, I would consider repurchasing it.

Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter and Chocolate sample - Both of these smell lush and totally edible plus they're really good moisturisers. The scent lasts on your skin and you smell of yummy strawberries all day!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory 100 - For the price this is really good, coverage is amazing but the lightest shade is a little bit orange for me but I have repurchased this already.

Nip and Fab Mango Body Butter -  If a body butter smells delicious, it's a winner. I really want to try the pistachio version from this brand.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent - A regular in empties posts, I don't know what I would do if this was ever discontinued.

Bath and Bodyworks Island Margarita Pocket Bac - We need these to be readily available in the UK. They're just so handy and everybody at work thinks that i've just sprayed perfume when I use this.

Collection Hot Looks Nail Varnish  in Mint Mojo - This has been replaced by Essie's Mint Candy Apple. Last year when I wanted to try this colour I picked up this cheap one but it's since gone all yacky.

Benefit Play stick - I've had this way too long. I htink it was one of the first high end products my mum took me to get. It's meant to be a concealer, foundation and powder in one. It's definitely really thick and I definitely liked it.

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

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

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
