All Used Up #2

Hi everyone

So this is going to be my 2nd all used up products post. I did one at the end on may and then haven’t done one since so this is about 2 and a half months’ worth of used up products so there is quite a lot, also I quite often have a few of the same sort of thing going at once so that’s why there is a few similar sort of products.

 Firstly I have 3 of my very favourite deodorant, it is the only one that I can use that doesn’t make me come out I a rash, kind of gross I know but every girl needs deodorant. It smells lovely and it works great for me, and yes I have repurchased it already and I will continue to. I always have a couple on the go in my gym bag and on my dressing table.

Next I have 2 packs of face wipes, at the top are Tesco cucumber Face Wipes, I got these to give them a try out as when I went they didn’t have any of my normal ones, and to be honest I didn’t really like them, apart from the smell. The smell of them is beautiful but they weren’t very soft and they dried out very quickly, even when you were using them. I would not repurchase these again.  

At the bottom are Johnsons Daily Essentials Refreshing face wipes. I have used these for a while now and they are my go to face wipes. I absolutely love them. They smell lovely and don’t dry out quickly at all. I have already repurchased these ones and the oil control ones to see which ones will work best for my skin.

Next I have 2 of my absolute always go to eye makeup remover the Garnier Simply Essentials soothing eye makeup remover, to me this is the best thing I have ever tried, it doesn’t sting my eyes, it removes everything and I just absolutely love it, I think that this was in my previous all used up video too, I have repurchased a new one as it is my holy grail.

 Next I have 3 different foundations. I have had all of these going at the same time. Firstly I have the Clinique anti-blemish solutions liquid makeup. This I absolutely loved, I thought that it did actually help the blemishes that I had. I loved the coverage it gave and the colour match was perfect for me. I haven’t repurchased this one as I am trying a different Clinique foundation at the moment as they are my favourite foundations by far.

The second one is the Clinique perfectly real makeup. This was the first Clinique foundation that I ever used and to be honest it is my least favourite that I have tried up until now, however I still do like it just not as much as the others I have tried I think that it was a little bit too thick and went a bit patchy. For these reasons I don’t think I will be repurchasing it.

The last one is my favourite drug store foundation. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. I absolutely love this foundation, it gives me the most lovely looking skin, even when my skin isn’t at its best. I think that the Bourjois foundations are the best colour matches for me in the drug store. I haven’t yet repurchased this but I am going to.

Next I have 3 body lotions that all came in sets with the perfumes that they have the same scent as. There is Ghost Deep Night, Fergie Outspoken & Christina Aguilera. I still have all 3 of the actual perfumes and love all of them, however I don’t think that I will be rebuying any of them, because I prefer my body lotions to be lighter smelling.

 Both of these Clinique products are in miniature, I have them both in the big bottles and have been using these ones in my bag when I go to the gym. I really love both of the products. The face wash isn’t my favourite of the ones that I have but I still use it on a regular basis. The moisturiser is my everyday does nothing fancy but keeps my skin hydrated product. As I have said I have them both in large bottles so I don’t need to repurchase them, but I think I would if they ran out.

This is one of my favourite hair care products. Avon Lotus Shield leave in treatment.  I had actually forgotten that I had this. But I have recently used it all up and I can categorically say that I absolutely love it. It has been leaving my hair really soft and easy to manage between washes. At the moment I don’t have an Avon rep, but when i get one I will be repurchasing it.

 Lastly this is my Avon Glimmerstick eyeliner in Blackest Black, I have already got 2 of these on standby, this is how much I love this eyeliner, it is absolutely amazing. I have always and will always repurchase it.

It seems that this time I have had a lot of products that I have loved and not many that I haven’t, I think that I may be using my favoured products first! :P

Have any of you had any recent empties?

Book Rave: Tales of a Gypsy Dressmaker

Hello everyone!

I hope that you are all okay, I have been away for the last 5 days at a festival, I shall do another post about it all shortly. However this is a very random post as you have probably guessed by the title.  I am a little bit of a book worm and I absolutely love finding new books to read and that kind of thing. So I was in ASDA with my Mum & Step-Dad the day before we were going away and I realised that I didn’t have a book to take with me so I went to see if they had anything interesting that I could take.

I spent absolutely ages looking at all of the books trying to decide what I wanted as there were so many that I was really interested in. I ended up choosing Tales of a Gypsy Dressmaker by Thelma Madine.

I had wanted to read this book ever since it came out as I am a massive fan of My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings. I think that it was around £3.50 in ASDA in paperback, which I though was an absolute bargain. They had a lot of paperback books in there for that price so I will be definitely going back to get some more shortly.

Anyway, I read the entire thing by Friday evening. I started it on Wednesday evening. That for me is quite quick to get through a whole book.  It may not be for some people but for me it is. I think that it did help that it was lovely and sunny and I was sat in a field listening to good music drinking cider :)  *hehe* I just couldn’t put the book down at all! I got so into it and really enjoyed it.

The book is basically an autobiography of her life. It says on the front “from hitting rock bottom to making girls dreams come true” and this is basically how I would describe it. She is so amazingly open and honest about everything that has happened in her life and I won’t spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t read it and wants to but I would 100% recommend this book to anyone who is a Big Fat Gypsy Weddings fan or even an autobiography fan. I really enjoy reading autobiographies; they are right up my street so it was a great selling point for me.

Anyway I know that this has been a very random post, and I shall be blogging a lot more soon as I am not going away anymore this year now.

Have any of you read this book? What did you think? Would you like to read it?

My New Bedroom

Hi Guys,

So as you may know the reason that I have been absent recently is that I have moved house! Yes it has been very exciting but also very stressful! However I thought as a welcome back post I would show you guys my new bedroom! It took me so long to decide on where everything was going to go and actually unpack everything, but I am so happy with it now and I absolutely love it! It is exactly what I wanted it to be like. So without more waffling from me, here it is! Let me know what you think.

Lots of Love

I'm Backk!!

Well hello there strangers

First off I have to completely apologise for me not being here for the last month! Moving house is soooo hectic, we have been moved in over a week now but have only just got the internet. I have hated not having the internet and not being able to be on here, however over the next few days there will be a lot of posts going up as I have been typing them up even though I didn’t have the internet. *proud of myself*

So I hope that you are all doing really well and are looking forward to more posts now that I am back on the scene and all that jazz! Please leave any requests or ideas for posts in the comments and I will try my best to do as many as possible.

Lots of Love
