Weekly Recap #5

Considering one of my new years resolutions was to cut down on Daily blogs, I’ve managed to post every day this week still. I had a load of posts though where I’d been putting off getting them finished and if I’d left it much longer they would have started to become irrelevent!

I started these weekly roundups in summer, and after 4 they fizzled back out, but I thought now that I’m (planning on) posting less it would be a helpful post for people who have missed posts through the week!


Cohorted Beauty Box Review (Link)


A run down and unboxing of Cohorted’s one off boxing day special box which featured products from Bare Minerals, Laura Mercier, HD Brows, Sigma & Peter Thomas Roth


Lee Stafford Coco Loco Genius Lotion (Link)


New in and already a holy grail hair care item, This all in one saviour has quickly become my most favourite product that I’ve discovered in a long time.


January Birchbox 2016 (Link)


I miserably tried to cancel my birchbox subscription, but was tricked my their cancellation process so I received another box which I didn’t want to arrive! Inside was contents from Benefit, Absolution and More


Beauty #TBT – MAC Hang Up Lipstick Review (Link)


My beauty throwback thursday series took a mini break, but was back with a bang this week with a look at a lipstick I received for my 21st birthday called Hung Up.


Collective Haul, Work, Boots and TK Maxx (Link)


This was my uber delayed post (notice the baubles in the background as I photgraphed it through december!) A collective haul of bits and pieces I collected throughout December from a work staff sale, during Christmas shopping and between Christmas and New Year.


Blue Sky Chameleon Nail Polish 021 Review (Link)


Last but certainly not least this week was a review of the Blue Sky Chameleon polish in (021) – yep above that is just one nail polish, no gradients or sponging involved here – it all changes colour on heat which can leave some ultra interesting effects. Nail polish witchcraft at it’s finest.

This week I was also featured in a Top 50 Bloggers list, it’s been a week of little milestones for my blog – one of my favourite youtubers followed me on instagram, I hit 1000 followers and was included in a top 50 list. A nice start to January I’m sure you’d agree. You can check out the full list here if you’re interested.

Until tomorrow,
