Ten Empties #26

So, here we are again – pretty much as soon as I’d finished off my last ten products, I found myself finishing loads more off within a few days. This edition is quite a mixed bag across all of the main categories this time around, and I’m really happy that the overflowing haircare section is […]

Glossybox February 2019 – Review & Unboxing

I was partly annoyed with myself, partly happy as I was debating whether to stay […]

Face Mask Friday #66 – Glamglow Gravity Mud

What better way to celebrate turning the grand age of 29 by starting my paranoid about turning 30 year, with an anti-ageing mask from Glamglow. The Christmas of 2017 I purchased a multi-pack of Glamglow masks and this has been the last from that list to try.

Ten Empties #25

I can’t quite believe it’s taken me almost a full month to finish off my next lot of Ten Empties, but my predictions that I would see a slower consumption has turned out to be correct so far – so we’ll see what the rest of the year holds. I have had a really good […]

A Year Of Ten Empties

So last year I decided to switch up how I posted Empties – in previous years I was finding that doing them monthly often meant I had so much product built up that the task of photographing them was so cumbersome it would take ages. As a result I would put it off “until next weekend” […]

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara Review

Bobbi Brown has been a brand which I’ve admired from afar for a long time, but only was finally able to start trying in 2018.

The 100 Movie Challenge 2018

At the start of December it was looking pretty ropey as to whether we would make it to number 100 – but after a few days between Christmas and New Year recharging from too much socialising and feeling pretty knackered after our first Christmas hosting for three days straight we had a few movie binge […]
