I think a comparison review is always a helpful read when you’re looking for a new product to try. A translucent face powder is a very basic product which I’m sure many of you use. I’ve picked up three very affordable drugstore ones to show you just how different they can be.
As many of you are aware, I moved to Reading at the beginning of March to start my first full time job in my degree field. I had my first review this week and am so pleased with how well I am doing there! However, things aren’t going quite so well in my personal life.
I’ve been wanting to write this post for a few days now, but I wanted to make sure I had time to sit and write it out properly. I’ve always known it was going to be a fairly hefty one considering the amount of Makeup Revolution products I have. I hadn’t tried anything from them until a month ago, when I won a giveaway hosted by Rachael from Helpless Whilst Drying and I also purchased two individual eyeshadows in the huge 3 for 2 on all make up offer at Superdrug.

This week has been really busy at work and by far the most hectic since I started my job three months ago. By Thursday, I was feeling like I looked a complete mess so I took some time out that evening to have a little pamper session.

Having finished working in retail a few weeks ago, I am so pleased with how quickly my nails have grown. So I decided to test out my new nail varnish from my recent French Beauty Haul. Keep reading
As I am still settling into my new work routine/life, I’ve found a quick tag post to do for today. This is one I haven’t heard of before, but thought sounded good!
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!)

What did I say last week about cutting back on spending and trying to use up what I have? And here I am with another haul post! Although I do think I have been really quite restrained with my spending so far this month.

It’s been a few months since I last did a favourites post, as I felt like I was saying the same things over and over. However I’ve had some recent additions to my stash and rediscovered an old favourite which I want to share with you all.

I think this is my biggest ever empties post, I’ve had a few things coming close to finishing for a while which I’ve finally managed to use up! Some of these are firm favourites which I’m sorry to see go, but others I am glad to see gone.

At first look, this may seem like a very boring manicure and I guess in some ways it is, but I am a big fan of dark nails and regularly wear black varnish. Recently, I purchased this bottle of Essie in the shade Liquorice on a whim, as my other black is quite old and is getting a bit gloopy.
I was lucky enough to get myself this bottle of foundation free on a promotion Smashbox were doing last Friday, where the first 20 people to their local Smashbox counter got a bottle of foundation just by showing that they liked their facebook page. How could I say no to that?!
Happy Halloween everyone! Yup, another empties post already! I’ve been surprisingly good at using up my old products lately, but I’ve also got some items in here which are just too old to still be usable. First up, the products which are actually empty!

Before we get started with what seems like my first product review in ages, I’d first of all like to say a big thank you to the lovely people who have responded so positively and given such helpful suggestions following yesterday’s post. I had a good night’s sleep and have woken up feeling much happier and more motivated. So thank you to the wonderful blogger community and my blogger friends for all your advice!
This is a product that you have probably seen me talk about on the blog before, although I haven’t yet done a proper review for it. I think the review is long overdue, as I have now finished this particular tub and purchased another one. That probably tells you a lot about how I feel about this hair mask! Keep reading
