under £10: the body shop facial massage

Never in a million years would I thought I'd have one of these facial massage/torture devices in my possession. My mom has a slight obsession with these things, but I never gave them much thought - Really, how much of a difference does it make? I am so glad to be proved wrong.

the post-travel skin detox

When travel packing, skincare is the first thing I skimp on. A small, usually ineffective cleanser, and a small sample of a random moisturizer, that's most likely what the travel skincare is going to be consisted of. Especially when I'm bringing half of my makeup collection. I should know better. The consequence? Several of under the skin bumps, a couple of blemishes, and a shed-load of clogged pores. Why don't I learn? However, I've come up with a post-travel skin care detox routine that has worked to calm down the skin and regenerate it back to pre-travel state.

Currently Loving #8

Another Sunday, which means another brunch day. Unless you're like me and refuse to leave the bed until after 11, and then spend the day mucking around, ignoring responsibilities. That's what Sundays are for, right?

Mini Blog Sale

I was going through my makeup collection the other day and came across some products that just sat unloved. So between needing a bit more money to support my ever growing wishlist and my ever growing guilt associated with not using the products I spent money on, I decided to clean up some of the little buddies and find them a new home.
For the moment being, it'll be a UK only sale as chances are, with international shipping included, it's probably not going to be worth the price. Shipping fee, unless otherwise stated will be £2, and unless you buy a load of things to hike up the price, it'll be a flat shipping rate. 
Send me an email if anything interests you, or tweet me for more details! Happy shopping!

packaging matters

Let's face it. Packaging matters. Sure, the actual product inside is important, and we're not supposed to judge a book by its cover. But sometimes, a pretty box is better than an ol' shoe box. The same goes for makeup. Sure, I'll still buy the product if I hate the packaging, but only if it's brilliant and/or I can depot the thing. Otherwise, chances are, being the stupid consumer I am, I'll cry and be persuaded to throw some  extra cash for the pretty packaging.
