Get To Know Me Tag

tags, get to know me tag

I found this tag over at Thirteen Thoughts a little while ago & since I'm kinda out of post ideas at the moment, I figured it'd be another fun way for you (the reader) to get to know me (Shell, the person behind The Novice Life).

Review: O&M Know Knott Detangler (Mini)

Do you and your brush or comb go to war each time you put either of them through your hair?

Do you have hair that is prone to looking like a birds nest knots?

Do you like your hair products to not only smell great but work effectively?

If you answered yes to all or any of the above, then I'd like you to meet a hair product you should introduce into your arsenal:

O&M, hair

Project Polish Winter 2016 Update

You can search for previous editions via the Project Polish tag, or you can find out what polishes are in the current edition here.

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to show you just how much progress I've made in the final instalment of my year-long Project Polish series. Don't expect miracles though - I haven't finished anything!

A Month of NOTD's


Hiya everyone!

I thought I'd put together a post featuring all the NOTD's (that's Nails of the Day for the uninitiated) I've done over the last month and a bit for you. All of the polishes I've been using are in my Winter Project Polish so no, I haven't been sneaky & used something else!

The Lust List #2

the lust list #2

Hi everyone!

It's time for another edition of The Lust List, where I gather together a whole stack of items I'm currently itching to add to cart. The first post seemed pretty popular & I enjoyed putting it together, so it was a no brainer to do another one!

The Shopping Cart (May/June)

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. 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.

The Monthly Happy List (June)

monthly happy list

Happy post-Hump Month people! I can't say I've ever heard June being referred to as "hump month" before (thanks Ebay Australia and your hilarious Barry White-esque ad!), but when you think about it, June is the middle of the year and therefore should be known as "hump month", just like we refer to Wednesday as "hump day" right? Or is this just an Australian thing? Do tell.
