Products I Want To Use Up In 2018 #3

Beauty and lifestyle empties for February 2018

After a fairly good start to my project pan, I feared that February was going to be a really slow month in terms of progress. As we went through the short month products just kept coming to an end, especially given using certain products increasingly became part of my routine. Product usage still is not […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 21-25

Top drawer of Look Fantastic advent calendar

I hope you have had a lovely couple of Christmas days, the family arguments were kept to the minimum and that you have found some trousers that will let you tuck into a mound of leftovers today. Waking up this morning without having a day to open in my advent calendar was a bit of […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 16-20

Blue lock and key into magical garden

Today is the 21st of December which is incredibly surprising in itself because wow 2017 has been wild and it is nearly over but more importantly it is the shortest day of the year which means longer days are on the way back in and before we know it Spring and blossom on trees will […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 11-15

Christmas tree design on Look Fantastic

It is really blowing my mind just how quickly Christmas is approaching. Perhaps it is based on how busy I have been and how many different illnesses I have had to deal with since the start of December rather than actually being in the Christmas spirit or doing almost anything festive. If you missed the […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 6-10

Flamingo in front of Christmas tree design

In the first instalment of this mini series, for days 1-5, I discussed that a lot of the boxes were the navy packaging rather than the snazzy pattern but I take that all back because photographing the colourful ones is far more challenging than I anticipated… But after the variety of products that came in […]

Empties of 2017: #1

The last empties post came from me right at the start of October. Since then a mound, albeit shamefully small, has formed of empty beauty, lifestyle and even food that I really need to get chatting about. So the title of this post is a little bit of a lie as it finds itself containing […]

Empties, September 2016

At last the Use It Up attitude has returned and the motivation to eliminate the back up products and only have one thing of each type is back (and hopefully willing to stay around for a while). Seeing a box of finished beauty items in front of me is certainly a factor that keeps me […]

Scrub Love Products

These products came to me through winning an instagram competition where I simply had to like the photo and then wait. In fact I waited so long that when the company, that sells loads of brands, got in touch about me winning I was absolutely gobsmacked and had to go through their instagram to even […]

Product Empties: May and June 2016

At the end of May I barely had any empties to discuss. I decided to wait and combine them with the following month of products as I did not think that I would actually accumulate that many more. But clearly I was mistaken and ended up with a rather large collection of things to discuss. […]

Why I Started A Health+Fitness Journey

So the title might be a bit of a push in the current world of definitions. I want to lose weight and get fit and to me that is fitness. But when the world, or at least Instagram, seem to be increasingly filled with ‘fitness freak’ going around trying to get down to unhealthily low […]
