Empties Time! (February/March)

empty beauty products

Hi everyone!

How did Easter treat you? I hope you didn't gorge on chocolate too much.

I didn't do one of these posts for February since I only had 3 things in my empties box, but now that it's a bit more full, I think it's time I showed you all what I finished over the last 2 months right?

So the gorgeous Felicia of The Beauty and the Geek AU has just nominated me for a Liebster Award & I feel a bit like a pageant queen.

Receiving a little recognition from a fellow blogger is ace, so thank you very much Fel! (If you want to read her Liebster Award post + see who else she nominated, click here.)

Post edited 4/4/16 

Hi everyone!

Today's post about Alpha-H's Gentle Daily Exfoliant & Absoluté Eye Complex has been a long time coming....I guess I haven't had the motivation to do it until now. This will be a really long post, so bear with me.

My 6 Desert Island Beauty Essentials

beauty products for a desert island

I'm sure the question of "what items would I want to have with me if I were stranded on a desert island" has come into the minds of every beauty blogger/lover at one stage or another. Me personally, I could do without makeup and nail polish (shock horror at the latter, I know!); but these 6 items below I know I couldn't live without.

Review: BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask (Original)

Ladies & gentlemen, meet what I believe is my HG (holy grail) beauty product.

Bite Beauty, agave lip mask
My current tube after roughly 3 weeks of use.
This tube of lip brilliance has been keeping my pout nice & moisturised since I discovered it in my travels around the US 18 months ago. Prior to that I was already becoming quite the BITE Beauty fan, but this product cemented my borderline junkie fangirl status when it comes to the brand. I want all the BITE things! (Ok, that's an exaggeration...that Opal lipstick they've brought out in the last few months isn't my kinda thing.) If you're not a fan of the plain & simple, you'll be pleased to know this also comes in 2 other varieties - Champagne (a pinky-ish shimmer which isn't too shimmery but not my cup of tea either - might be nice for the daytime though), which I've tested in the past & Smashed (a red tint), which I've yet to try.

The Shopping Cart (February)

the shopping cart

Hola mi amigas!

Today I'm starting a new series called The Shopping Cart, which I won't promise to keep up with but you might see these posts crop up from time to time on TNL. In these posts I'll round up all of my purchases for the month & present them to you for your voyeuristic pleasure.

The Monthly Happy List (February)

monthly happy list, happiness

When I first started TNL & came up with the idea of a Weekly Happy List, I didn't realise just how difficult it was going to be for me to keep up with it. More often than not I haven't been able to publish such posts due to a lack of content (I live a humdrum life sadly, nothing all that exciting going on here!) and I feel like it's become all too hard.

So what's a girl to do when she's struggling? Come up with a new plan.
