July Empties

My empty product posts always seem to end up appearing around the middle of the month for some reason. 

I still can't get over how many products you actually use up if you stick to the same thing for a while and then keep the bottles as evidence!

Constant repurchases that I love:

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - Review here
Batiste Dry Shampoo
No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Make Up Remover - Review here

Bath & Bodyworks Hand Sanitisers - These are the best things ever but I think this has exhausted my stash of them. I usually order them in bulk on eBay. They smell gorgeous and look pretty too!

Ginvera BB Cream - I love this and am definitely going to be purchasing the full size. I was impressed the very first time that I used it. I used it whilst I was away in Tunisia as it has SPF 30 in it. The colour tint is much nicer than that i've found with other BB creams and this sample from the Birmingham Blogger Meet Up has lasted me ages!

Percy & Reed Colour Shine Conditioner - This was a nice product but a bit of a thick conditioner for my fine hair. It was a freebie in Glamour magazine.

John Frieda Everlasting Blonde Shampoo - I finished the conditioner to this in my last empties post but shampoo always last me longer. This originated in a Glossybox and I loved it. I'll definitely purchase the full size next time I get highlights.

Dove Summer Glow Gradual Tan Moisturising Lotion - This is the dark version as I find it's usually best to get the darkest shade with tanning products for the best effect. I used this to maintain my holiday tan and really liked it. It's on offer in Boots at the moment for £2.50, half price I think so I've just picked up a replacement.

Palmolive Shower Creme

Morgan Vanilla Bubble Bath 

Blend Collective Hand Lotion

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque - I am a newly converted Macadamia addict. I was lucky to be able to meet the owner at an event held by the Vintage Set. Pretty sure that I'll have a whole Macadamia post up soon!

No7 Eyeliner pencils - Over the years, whenever I had a £5 off No7 voucher, I always picked up one of these eyeliners because they ended up been £2.50. I still love them, they stay put all day and are a solid black. I've actually finished two eyeliners which is a first hence the odd looking remains in the photo!

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. Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18 Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14 Other items I considered buying: This grey jewelled clutch bag ca

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
