Drugstore Essentials Haul

Drugstore Essentials

I know I fell of the face of the planet for a bit there, but I’m back! I have been super busy viewing houses around working, but (not to jinx anything) I think that might be over soon… I did manage to do a bit of essential shopping though and I’m going to share that with you today.

A Little Me Time

Me Time

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.

Empties 7

Empties 7

It’s not been that long since my last Empties post. In fact, I’m writing this up more than a week in advance because I am dying to throw all of this out! (Except the Lush pot, keeping that for their trade in scheme.) Despite having had 11 items in the previous post, I’ve had most of this sitting around for a few weeks already. I used most of it up within a couple of days of blogging the last lot and have only added 1 or 2 since then.

What’s In My Shower?

Shower

I saw this great post on Lulu’s Beauty Spot a few weeks back and knew as soon as I read it that I wanted to do my own version of it. According to Lulu, this was once a classic blog question, much like what’s in my handbag, but is one I haven’t seen before! Have I completely missed this craze?

Empties 6

Empties 6

It’s Empties time again – and it’s another big one! Lately it seems like I’ve been keeping hold of a couple of used up things for ages and then all of a sudden this happens. Plus in the week since I took these photos I’ve already used up a couple of other things. I’m definitely an everything at once kind of product finisher.

My Beauty Stash

Rachael Watkins CV Portfolio

This month, I need to cut back on my spending as I’m changing my job, going away for a week and also got a big shopping trip to Birmingham planned. I know, a shopping trip and a spending ban? Not going to go well… However, I decided to go through my surprisingly large collection quickly with you all. Hopefully, documenting and organising it all a bit better will help me to realise what I actually own and curb those spendy urges.

Let’s Talk… Moisturiser

moisturiser

The winter is really taking its toll on my skin. I know that as the weather changes it’s best to change your skincare routine to meet different needs, but this year my skin has gone really dry and, in some places, I’ve even gotten a few small patches of eczema. I haven’t had trouble with eczema since I was about 5! To counter this, I raided my stash for moisturisers. Here’s what I’m using at the moment.

2014 Beauty Discoveries

IMG_2120

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a good night and weren’t suffering too badly yesterday! I went down to London and had an amazing time catching up with uni friends, most of whom I hadn’t seen since graduation. It was so nice to see them all again and actually do something for new year – I usually don’t.

I thought I’d kick off the new year by sharing some of my favourite beauty discoveries from the past year.

Christmas Beauty Haul

So this is a bit of an odd post in some ways, as I was going to post a ‘What I Got For Christmas/Birthday’ thing, but have been working a lot (yay retail at xmas…) and predominantly got books & dvds. I am very pleased with everything I got*, but I don’t want to bore you all with them. Then I went sale shopping & found nothing in most stores, so I have combined those beauty items with the others for one picture heavy beauty post!

*except maybe a christmas cake liquer I got for my birthday. I’m scared to try it.

Soap & Glory The Perfect Ten Palette

IMG_1909

I am so impatient to share my new eye shadow palette with you all! I’ve been thinking about buying a nude palette for quite a while now and was looking at saving up for a Naked Palette at the end of the month, but I found this beaut in Boots the other day. I left without it, came home and looked it up and regretted not buying it, so I rushed back to get it before work yesterday. And I am so glad I did.
