Empties #1

To bring more beauty into my little blog, I thought I would start writing about my Empties! I love watching Empties videos on YT, so I thought I'd give it a go myself in the form of a blog post. I'm one of those people that rarely finishes anything - so with this idea in mind, I was a little more determined to finish off what I had instead of just buying a new one. I've had all my empties in a bag stashed under my desk for weeks now, until I had a decent amount to write about! Enough rambling, onto the empties... 

Skincare wise, I finished a few bits. Obviously a Bioderma Micellar water which is my all time favourite and I'll will definetely be coming home from France with a few bottles! After I finished up my Bioderma, I started my Sephora Micellar water I bought in Rome. I was excited to have a bottle with a pump, but my pump kept leaking, which was a little annoying. The water itself was good at getting any stubborn make-up off, the only thing I didn't like was the scent. But I'd definetely buy it again, with a working pump next time. 

I was gifted the Bioderma Cleanser from my boyfriend's aunt last time we went to France. I didn't think I'd use it, but it's one of my favourites. It's lasted me so long too! I only used one or two pumps each morning, to wash away any traces of make-up and make my face fresh for the day. It's really light on the skin but really washes away those impurities and it left my skin soft and feeling super clean. 

Other things I've used up is my Soap & Glory Orangasm Shower Gel. I loved this! It smells all zesty and fresh, lasted me a long time and even my boyfriend like it too! My L'Oreal Triple Active moisturiser has been a favourite. I used this religiously everyday for months now and it's kept my skin silky smooth. I love the consistency, the smell and it sinks so quickly into the skin. Definetely recommend! Lastly, my skin's saviour the Botanics Face Scrub. I bought this on a whim because it was on offer and now I can't live without it. After cleansing I apply a little dollop on my face and it buffs away all my dry skin! It's got little exfoliating beads to scrub off the dirt, and it leaves your face super smooth! For only a few pounds it's well worth it!

Make-up wise. I only have a few products. My Bourjois BB Cream has been a favourite. I bought it last summer to have something lighter on my skin and I adores it! It's the perfect coverage, let my skin breathe in the heat and lasted all day. Through autumn and winter when I wanted something a little heavier, I turned to my Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. I can't live without this foundation, I already purchased another.. it's my holy grail. My KIKO mascara has finally dried up.. it was my go-to for work days, nothing too heavy, perfect for a natural look. And lastly, my Rimmel Stay Matte powder! I love this powder, it sets my make-up, lasts all day and keeps the dewiness to a minimum. I've already repurchased this too!

It's so satisfying finishing up products. I love being able to throw all these away now and discover some new products. It's give me the chance to sort through all the products I have in my draws and splash out on some new ones too - especially while I'm in France! It's given me an excuse!

My Little Road Trip Box

This months My Little Box is my new favourite. Eventhough it arrived super late, I was smitten the moment I saw it! Oh, I love a good road trip. Me and my boyfriend have a shared love for travel and there's nothing we love more than packing up the car, turning the radio up full blast and setting off on the road! This is already coming in handy for me, because this evening me and my boyfriend are heading to France for the weekend! We're going on the coach and this box was exactly what I needed to get me super organised!

What Amanda Wore | Rose Prints

Shorts, Cami & Boots: Primark | Coatigan: H&M

It's not often I dress up on Sundays anymore. Recently, I've been going for the jeans and tee combo for comfort, especially if me and my boyfriend aren't going out. A few weeks back, all my jeans were in the wash so I was rifling through my draws and discovered these Rose printed shorts. I remember buying them in Primark in Scotland last year, and being obsessed with them! They come with a jacket too, but for a simple daytime outfit, I wore them with a white cami and my coatigan just to keep the breeze off my arms.
