    Glossier Is It Still Worth The Hype?

    Okay so last year Glossier took the UK by storm. We had been waiting for months and it finally came after months and months of longing for what was already loved over the pond. I will admit I was on the site at 8am the day of the UK launch, I had my list, I knew what I wanted and my basket was full by 8.04am. So clearly the hype was huge, now around 6 months after the UK launch I’m going to discuss whether I think Glossier is still worth the hype. The thing is about Glossier is that we were all forced, in the UK, to buy based…

    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…

    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.

It’s free from parabens, Silicones, sulphates etc etc the list goes on and it’s also vegan! I love the Coconut Milk…

    October Favourites

    I’m back again with another monthly favourites and I must say October was pretty fab! It ¬†was finally full blown Autumn meaning all the leaves and the trees looked gorgeous, I got to go on holiday and to a couple of blogger events too! So onto what I’ve been loving this past month.. Josh and I discovered this one whilst trying to fins something lighthearted to watch one night, Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father was exactly what we were after. The episodes were only short and there are only around 6 so you can whizz through them easily. The show basically sees Jack going on a gap year with…

    Glossier Haul and First Impressions

    The time has come, I’ve been waiting and waiting….and waiting. Glossier has hit the UK! I have been lusting after their skincare and makeup products for the best part of a year as they were only available in the US but finally it’s made it’s way across the pond and straight into my basket. I’m a creature of habit and have really scaled back my makeup and skincare routines and collections over the last couple of years, so the fact that I have bought so much really shows how excited I was. I just think the whole brand is up my street, its all about less is more, lightweight makeup…
