January Empties

During January I managed to finish a respectable five products, as well as deciding to throw out a couple of things that I just never use. They were: Trilogy botanical body wash*, Eleven miracle hair treatment, Neutrogena Hydro Boost SPF 15 as well as a sample size, Manicare Cuticle Therapy Oil, Kleancolour Madly Matte top coat, and Jordana calcium basecoat. All bar one of them were full sized as well, so that’s a good effort. I haven’t been wearing as much makeup lately because it is SO HOT and humid here in Auckland so that probably explains why everything is skincare, hair, body, and nail products. Eleven Miracle Hair Treatment I got this in a subscription box way back in September 2014! I went back to see what I wrote about it when I originally got it and I said “Even considering how much I need to use for my long hair, I think this would last a fairly decent amount of time, so it’s good value for money” – well I was right! I used this the majority of times that I wash my hair and I always noticed a difference in how it dried. Repurchase? Probably, I’m currently using a […]

Harry Potter nail art

Today I’m going to be showing you the most challenging nail art I’ve ever attempted. The Polish Addicts of New Zealand group/blog has run a nail art contest named ‘It’s a Kind of Magic’. You had to choose good magic, or dark magic, and do nail art to go with that theme. When I think of magic, my first thought is Harry Potter, so I’ve entered under the good magic category.

What’s in my bag

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a nosy person. It’s not a very good habit, so I try to refrain from doing it most of the time. One thing I love on blogs or youtube videos is when people show us what’s in their bag. It’s like I’m being nosy, but they’re actually showing me! So, I’ve decided to show you all what lives in my bag. I’ll focus mainly on the beauty products but I’ll show you the rest of what I haul around with me too. To start off with, here is the bag itself. I got it in the Boxing Day sales last year, and it’s great. Big enough to carry what I need, but not so big that I make it ridiculously heavy. Here is everything that’s in my bag, and it shows pretty much everything that I usually carry. Not shown are my glasses because they were on my face, or my work phone because I don’t carry it in the weekend. I have other things from time to time, like my Kindle, or something I’m knitting, but this stuff is mainly the essentials. I have my gorgeous wallet from Collette, another Boxing Day […]
