    Products I’m Trying To Use Up

    I have regularly posted Empties posts for the last year, but you may remember in my most recent one I pledged to try and reduce my use of plastics and buy more ‘naked’ products with zero packaging. Well I’ve stuck to my word and have been using a solid shower gel, shampoo and body scrub so that’s 3 less bottles used! However some products have to be packaged and I still possess quite a few of them. Today I have compiled a list of a few items which I am attempting to finish off before I recycle their packaging. I chose these items for various reasons including the fact that…

    What I Got For Christmas

    Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas with your family and friends! I took a little break over Christmas, firstly because I was absolutely shattered by the time it actually arrived and secondly because I wanted to spend proper time with my loved ones. Then an unforeseen third reason because I have been a bit unwell this week so haven’t really been up to taking photo’s for content etc. Now I’m back though, I’m ready to take on the new year and really put some time and effort into my blog for all you lovely readers to enjoy. I thought I’d share with you some of the…

    Neal’s Yard Remedies Surprise | Blogmas Day 12 & 13

    Slap on the wrist for me, yesterday I slipped up and didn’t post for blogmas, I managed 11 days before this happened so I think I did pretty well. You know how December is, we’ve all got a million and one sets of plans to try and see all of our friends and family before the big day and alongside work it just caught up with me. However I’m back today with a rather exciting post! You might remember that last week I went to a Blogger Event at the new Neal’s Yard Remedies store in Meadowhall, when I was there, there was a chance to win a beautiful hamper…

    3 New Brands I’ve Discovered This Year | Blogmas Day 10

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a creature of habit, I’ve got my beauty and skincare regime down and I rarely alter it or add new items. However this year a few new brands have sneaked into my routine and indeed my blog posts. I thought that for Blogmas day 10 I’d do a roundup of my favourite brands I’ve discovered this year. First up is a haircare brand, for the second half of the year I’ve been loving the Maui Moisture Haircare range. It’s free from parabens, Silicones, sulphates etc etc the list goes on and it’s also vegan! I love the Coconut Milk…

    Cruelty-Free Gift Guide | Blogmas Day 8

    You may have picked up in a few of my blog posts that I try buy as many cruelty-free cosmetics and toiletries as I can rather than items which have been tested on animals. There are also plenty of people who are vegetarian or vegan so I thought it would be quite nice to put together a cruelty-free gift guide to help you buy for the animal lover in your life. First up, and this has got to be the most obvious one, is Lush. You will know by my hauls that I adore all of their products, there really is something for everyone whether it be an individual bath…
