Recent Empties

mayemptiesheader.jpgI always forget to keep my empties, I start off the month meaning to keep them and then a few weeks in I’ve either forgotten to keep them or got fed up with the clutter and thrown them out. This month, or rather over a month now, I remembered so here’s a post of (almost) everything I used up in April and May so far. I say almost because I’m sure I’ve got rid of some empties just because I forgot.

I didn’t realise until I got them all together how many things I’d actually finished, or how many hand creams I’d had on the go at the same time. I always find that I go ages without finishing anything because they’re big bottle or pots and I’m part way through, but then everything finishes at once so if I did these regularly there would probably be months of a few products going each month and then a big lot like this.

Advent 2016: Day 1 – It Starts!

It’s the first day of December and that means advent calendar time! I may have ended up with four when I saw a Lindt one on offer and couldn’t resist the chocolatey goodness. With these advent calendar posts I do mini reviews or first impressions for the things I get in the calendars on that day. I will be doing more in depth reviews on some of them in the future when I’ve had a chance to try them some more.

The first day of advent has the Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream in the Marks and Spencer calendar, a Ciate mini Geology nail varnish in Goal Digger from the Ciate Mini Mani Month and a tea light in Spiced Orange from my Yankee Candle one. At least I think it’s Spiced Orange, there are two red ones and nothing on the door to say which it is. I do have a scratch and sniff type card with the other one on it and this doesn’t smell like that. If I’m wrong I’ll come back and edit it when I find out.

Advent 2015: Day 10

Processed with Moldiv

Day 10 is the day when I finally get the last scent in the tea lights in my. Yankee Candle advent calendar and I really like the Angels Wings smell, I think it’s probably the one out of all of them that would be a nice all year round scent. In my Marks and Spencer calendar I got a tube of Neal’s Yard nourishing cream in Frankincense. I think I’ve only had one other Neal’s Yard product before and I love it so I’m hoping to like this too.

October Favourites: Five Beauty Things and One That Isn’t

octoberfavourites4

I’m a bit late with this post, I realised today that it’s the second week in November and I hadn’t done an October favourites post. Like most months it’s a bit of a mixed bag, though I think almost everything could come under the beauty tag this time which is probably a first, Yankee Candle things seem to be in beauty blogs a lot.
