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 […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 1-5

Christmas tree, flamingo, beauty, feminine style design for advent calendar

Avoiding spoilers for beauty advent calendars is particularly tricky when you are so into watching Youtube videos and reading other people’s blogs but somehow I managed to avoid finding out the contents of anything in the box until it came to actually opening the first few days. The Look Fantastic box is a bit of […]

Lush’s Christingle

Tub of self-preserving body product by vegan creators Lush

When it comes to skincare I am terrible. I struggle to carve out the time to use anything more than a wet flannel or a face wipe to clean my face at the end of the day, despite having a number of incredible products on hand, let alone trying to add all these extra steps […]

Superdrug’s Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask

After dealing with the disaster that was the black seaweed mask by Superdrug I will have to admit I was pretty sceptical about returning back into the drawer of masks to try another one. Whilst peel-off masks are often my favourite because of the satisfying feeling that removing it from your face gives there is […]

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 […]
