5 Mini Reviews: Skin and Tonic, Estee Lauder, This Works, The Body Shop and Madara

My stash of beauty minis doesn't seem to be reducing and I'm trying to make a concerted effort to get through them quicker than I accumulate them! I even have a dedicated little wicker basket in my bedside table just for the sachets, vials and tubes... and it's full. Oops. I have 5 of these up on trial today - my initial thoughts and whether it's enough to make me buy the full size.

The Best Smelling Haircare... Ever?

It isn't just Lush's bath/shower products that smell downright amazing, I've ventured into their haircare range and I can't stop smelling my freshly washed locks. It can't be wrong to start washing my hair every day if haircare smells THAT good... right?

5 Tips For A Thorough Declutter

One of the items on my to-do list for 2016 (you can see the full list here!) is to declutter my house. Since my husband and I moved in around 5 years ago we have accumulated an awful lot of stuff and never seem to throw anything away. I made a start over the Christmas/New Year break as I had quite a bit of time off from work and I ended up getting really into it. So for those of you planning your own declutter or struggling to get/stay motivated, I thought it might be helpful to share my tips for a thorough declutter based on my own experience of it so far.

November and December Empties #4

Over two months I have collected an awful lot of empty beauty bottles, tubes and pots to share with you lovely lot! It feels like quite an achievement, not wasting expired or ridiculously old products and reducing down my huge stash. You know the empties post drill - coming your way is a mini review of each products and whether I'll be re-purchasing now or in the future.

16 Things I Want To Do In 2016

In the latter half of last year, I found myself doing a lot of thinking and personal reflection. One of the big things that came from this is that I realised how completely fed up I am with myself saying I'll do x, y and z, then never following through. With the big 3-0 approaching in 2017 and the phrase "life is short" ringing in my mind, this is why I've thought of so many things I want to do/achieve/complete in 2016. Many of them are small and they're all realistic - in fact, I'm pretty confident it's possible for me to do them all this year. So here is my 16 point to-do list for 2016...

My 15 Favourite Beauty Discoveries of 2015

There's something so satisfying about trying a new product and it being so darn good that it makes its way into your favourites list. This year I'm putting all my favourite beauty discoveries into one post, however I did it find it quite difficult to keep it at only 15 products, but I'm very, very happy with the final cut. In no particular order...
