Empties Time! (April/May)

empty beauty products

I did consider doing an empties post for April as my box was getting pretty full, but I got lazy & ran out of time before my holiday, hence the rollover.

NOTD: Can't Find My Party Shoes


How was your weekend? Mine wasn't too bad - got busy in the kitchen whipping up food left right & centre because I was in that sort of mood. I don't know about you, but when the weather begins to turn cooler, I get the urge to get into the kitchen & cook & bake to my heart's content. Of course, I had just enough time to do my nails and create today's post.

Battle of the Curling Wands (Part 1): Jilbère de Paris Euro 2500 25mm Ceramic Curler

hair, curling wands, Jilbere de Paris
Hi everyone!

Today's post is the first of a 3-part series I'll be featuring on TNL, all about the curling wands I own. (Although one of them's actually a waving wand, but let's not get into semantics!)

You may remember at the beginning of the year I mentioned that one of my intentions for 2016 was to do more with my hair than just the usual ponytail or top knot; so it's in that spirit that I decided I'd get out of my oft-neglected curling wands, have a play around with them for practising purposes & review them for the blog. I'll update this post and all the others with links to the other parts once they have been published, so you can follow along easily.

3 Sunscreens I've Been Trialling Lately


As you all know by now (and if you don't, then catch up on the story here), sunscreen is something that has become terribly important to me of late. Having had 2 skin cancers removed from my face in the last 4 months, I don't wish to discover any more and if there's anything I can do to prevent further damage down the track, then a tube of SPF is something I want on hand at all times.

I've been using chemical sunscreens for a while now, but in my seemingly never-ending quest to find the perfect sunscreen, I've recently switched to using physical-based sunscreens, purely because I felt like a change & I wanted to see how far advanced formulations are from the thick, white days of old.

My Favourite Eurovision Tunes of the Last 6 Years

Hi everyone I'm back from my holiday! I won't lie, reality bites right now (especially since I had an absolute blast whilst away); but as the old saying goes, "all good things must come to an end". Would also like to say sorry for the lack of a post 2 Fridays ago - I must've edited it when it was in schedule mode & forgot to hit the schedule button again. It's up on the blog now if you want to read it.

But enough about that, let's get into today's post...

The Shopping Cart (April)

It's that time of the month not that one....the time of the month where I round up all my purchases for your voyeuristic pleasure & tell you about each of them. I'm not grouping my purchases into categories this month because I simply can't be bothered and in the end, I had to photograph the majority of my purchases myself. Cue 10000 shots I wasn't happy with & 2 that were ok enough to be seen.

As always, any sales or links mentioned in this post are correct at the time of publishing. If by chance those links are broken or the sales are no longer happening by the time you read this post, then I can't nor won't be held responsible.
