Forever Repurchasing…

Forever Repurchasing

Today I want to talk about two items that are absolute essentials in my make up bag, which I find myself repurchasing as soon as they seem like they’re getting low as I just cannot bear to go without them. Yet, neither has had a proper review on my blog before! So I decided to create a new series for items I find myself repurchasing every time without fail.

Creating That Home-y Feeling

HomeFeeling

I thought I’d talk about something a bit different today. Over the past four years, I have moved at least once a year. First into halls in Cardiff, then into a 6 bed house for my second year of university, followed by a 3 bed flat for my final year. Then I moved back to my parents into a room my mum had decorated for me, but never really felt like mine and then back into what had always been my bedroom when my brother went off to uni and, most recently, into a 2 bed house in Reading. Through out all this, I have gained a pretty good idea of how to make what is usually a pretty plain space into somewhere that feels like it belongs to me and gives that lovely comforting feeling of being home. Here’s a few images of my new place and some thoughts on what I think make a place home.

Seventeen Eyeliner Reviews

Seventeen Eyeliner

As in reviews of two eyeliners from the brand Seventeen, not seventeen reviews of different eyeliners! That would be a pretty long post… Both of these eyeliners I got in a gift set in the January sale as featured in my Christmas Beauty Haul. The set contained four eyeliners for only £6.

The Glamour Spring Edit Beauty Box from Latest in Beauty

Glamour Spring Edit

I think I’m addicted to beauty boxes. Not in all all consuming must-get-all-of-them every single month kind of way, but since I got my first Glossybox back in July, I haven’t gone a month without a beauty box of some kind. This month being short of cash and having just moved I wasn’t planning on getting any. But then I saw this one and I just had to have it.

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo Review

Liz Earle Shampoo

Sticking with my previous post’s rather overwhelming hair care theme, I thought I would review the current sulphate free shampoo that I have been using. It is, of course, the much loved and reviewed Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo, which is £10 for 200ml and definitely the most I have spent on one shampoo.

The unusual thing about the Liz Earle shampoo range is that this is it! Just the one shampoo and a conditioner, which wasn’t available at the time. I think it takes a lot of confidence in your product to only sell one product for all hair types, but it is because it is made from natural ingredients, which are great for your hair. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there who wouldn’t like this product, but from what I’ve seen of online reviews, they are few and far between.

Teenie Beauty Haul

Teenier Beauty Haul

Over the weekend, I headed into Reading town centre to have a bit of a wonder around and to get some shampoo. As I don’t have a lot of spare money at the moment, I tried to convince myself shampoo was all I was going to get… Now I did get a couple of extra things, but overall think I did quite well to resist a lot of the offers and promotions happening at the moment.

French Beauty Haul

French Beauty Haul

On Sunday, I got back from a few days away in Brittany, France. After booking the trip, I wasted no time in looking up where I would be able to find a Sephora and, as luck would have it, there was one in Saint Malo, where I was getting the ferry back from. It turned out to be a much smaller store than I was expecting, so I also grabbed a couple of things in the local supermarket (which was cheaper than the pharmacy – I check there too!)
