February Empties / Products I've Used Up

Friday, 28 February 2014

It's Empties time once again!  Here are the products that I've managed to finish off this month, my thoughts on them, and whether I'll be repurchasing or not. 

Review: Flamingo Candles - Candy Floss from the S/S14 Candy Shop Range

Thursday, 27 February 2014

Where possible, I like to buy paraffin free candles because they burn so much better, and let's face it, the more we can avoid using paraffin in anything, the better.  However, I do miss some of the more sugary sweet flavours that brands like Yankee Candle offer, so I wanted to find a natural alternative.  And here it is, complete with a cute flamingo attached!

InStyle Magazine Best Beauty Buys 2014 & Shopping My Stash

Tuesday, 25 February 2014

Earlier this month, my Twitter and Instagram feeds erupted with images of InStyle's annual 'Best Beauty Buys' supplement which is compiled by nearly 200 industry experts.  I pick it up every year (it comes free with that month's magazine), and enjoy having a good flick through to see who the winners are.

Skincare Review: Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser, Scrub and Mask & Hyaluspot Treatment

Saturday, 22 February 2014

I've been in essay writing hell this week for Uni, and whenever I'm stressed out, it seems to show up immediately on my face in the form of angry looking blemishes (joy!).  To combat this, I've been reaching for these two products from Vichy's Normaderm range for some help.

Review & Swatches: B. Sculpted Contour Kit in Light and B. Precise Gel Eyeliner in Black

Tuesday, 18 February 2014

I've mentioned a couple of products from B. before which I've loved (I featured one of their new Lip & Cheek Colours in my January Favourites), and I've recently been trying out two more from their makeup range; the B. Sculpted Contour Kit and B. Precise Gel Eyeliner. 

Review: Love Me Beauty Box - February 2014

Friday, 14 February 2014

Just in time for Valentine's Day, my Love Me Beauty box arrived bright and early yesterday morning and I couldn't wait to open it up.  So without further ado, let's have a look at the contents shall we?

Review & Photos: Toni & Guy Casual Hourglass Wand

Wednesday, 12 February 2014

I'm counting down the days to Summer like a crazy woman - enough of this miserable Winter already!  Enough!  In a futile attempt to speed up the process, I've been experimenting with more Summery looks recently, including trying out this hair wand from Toni & Guy for those beachy, wavy styles that I love so much.  

Valentine's / Mother's Day Gift Idea: IWNC. Co Natural Candle - Jasmine review

Tuesday, 11 February 2014

Still looking for a gift for Valentine's Day or beginning to think of Mother's Day?  If you're on a budget but don't want to compromise on quality or luxury, then look no further than IWNC. Co and their exquisite range of natural candles.

NOTD: Barry M - Countess (with & without top coat)

Sunday, 9 February 2014

Usually I'm a total sucker for nail trends, but the whole 'textured' thing is one that I've allowed to pass me by.  Until now of course.  My friend Sophie gave me a trio of Barry M Nail Paints as part of my Christmas present, and my eyes were immediately drawn to this one.

Valentine's Day Gift Idea: Jurlique and Marks & Spencer GWP - Rose Love Balm

Friday, 7 February 2014

To celebrate Valentine's Day, Jurlique and Marks and Spencer are currently running a special GWP (Gift with Purchase) in stores and online.  And who doesn't love a little GWP?!

Thursday, 6 February 2014

I love trying out samples, and found these in the bottom of my travel bag earlier which I've used up.  Here are my thoughts on them. 

Celebrating Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2014 - Radiant Orchid

Back in my college days when I was studying photography, I used to hang out with a lot of art, fashion and graphic design students who were obsessed with trends and the 'next big thing'.  Pantone was of course name dropped often as the 'authority on colour'.  So every year, they choose a new colour to inspire and encourage those in the industry to express their creativity in new and exciting ways. 

Valentine's Day Gift Idea: NEOM Limited Edition Love Home Candle review

Wednesday, 5 February 2014

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and NEOM have come out on top again with a new Limited Edition Home Candle to celebrate the occasion, aptly named 'Love'.

January Favourites

Tuesday, 4 February 2014

I don't know about you, but I for one am beyond happy that January is finally over and we're now a month closer to Spring (and hopefully some sunshine!).  Despite the persistent rain, grey skies and freezing cold winds, it was a surprisingly positive month for discovering some new beauty favourites.

January Empties / Products I've Used Up

Sunday, 2 February 2014

Here's to the first Empties post of 2014.  I'm really happy with how many products I've managed to finish up last month, though there are quite a few favourites amongst this little lot that I'm sad to see go!
