May 2014 ’empties’

Hey girls! Long time no post, I know!
I’ve been collecting my empties over the past month and here goes…


As you can see it’s mostly hair products, 3 shampoos, 1 mini conditioner and 2 detanglers (anybody would think I like to wash my hair a lot) but the Charles Worthington balancing act shampoo was in my stash for quite some time, I had forgotten about it and I had ran out of and came across it again, I also have the conditioner to match but still using it, I shampoo twice so I go through it quicker than the conditioner. All in all neither of the 3 the shampoos were anything to write home about, they did the job though and the raspberry Alberto balsam smells lush, usually £1 in most supermarkets!
The asda relax bath soak was nice, you get 750mls for £1 and it’s much and such the same as radox in my opinion.
I loved the Aussie hair insurance leave-in conditioner it smells divine and really does detangle your damp locks, I can’t say I am as enthused by the Mark Hill No Knots spray but I got through it eventually and now it’s time to try something new as my poor bleached hair does need a lil something something to get the brush through it! Any suggestions of good de-tangling sprays let me know.
The dove body lotion was nice but I as I say nothing to write home about, I have a billion lotions and body butters to get through before repurchasing and I don’t think it would catch my eye again tbh.
One of my favourite perfumes and my partners favourite on me is Davidoff cool water, I got a new bottle for Christmas so no need to repurchase at the moment.
I’m sure you have all used or atleast heard of the nice and easy colour seal conditioner, you get these with the nice and easy hair dyes but they can be bought separately and they are a good way of giving your hair a deep condition when your feeling the need.

Anyway hope that kept you occupied for a few minutes, till next time!


Avon Nail Polish Collection

My previous NOTD blog post was of an Avon polish and a few people commented saying how nice it was so it got me thinking, I have quite a few polishes from Avon, I should do a collection post! When I say a few, I think it’s abit of an understatement….


Here is my collection from the speed dry range:


From front to back: don’t be jaded, lime splatter, turquoise pop, sateen.

Now the nail wear pro:

From front to back: viva pink, pastel pink, apple of his eye, luxe lavender, (no name on bottle), arctic waters, noir emerald.

And finally my mosaic effects ‘crackle’ collection:

Front to back: mosaic mica, blue flash, fiery fuchsia

I love the formula and all the colours are opaque and only require 3 coats for get a good coverage. I would love to hear your favourite Nail Varnish shades from Avon.

If you havn’t tried them yet, find a selection Here or contact your local Avon representative.

Along came Betty by Tesco

ImageWhile I was away for the weekend with my sister she was showing me what was in her make up bag and I was particularly taken by a couple products from the Betty range, she had the ‘All Concealed – concealer kit’ and ‘Starlight Shine’. So when my mum called to say she was in our local (35miles away) Tesco, I was straight on the website to chose a few products for her to pick up for me.

I am so excited to try these, all products shown here are reduced to around £1.50 at the moment! The packaging is so beautiful, I think the ‘Along Came Betty’ range is Tesco’s answer to Soap and Glory. I am mostly excited to try the ‘Starlight Shine – Highlighter’ as I really wanted the watts up stick highlighter from Benefit but January is a tight month for all so will have to save up my boots points for that one, this will be a nice alternative until such time. Unfortunately the concealer kit was sold out in my local store but always next time eh?

 Has anyone else tried anything else from this brand?

Gatineau skincare set #xmasgift

Just a wee blog post on one my gifts Santa brought me. This gentle silk cleanser, toner and eye makeup remover by Gatineau. This is my first products from the brand, has anyone else tried anything from the brand? I’d be excited to hear your comments on this post and let us know your experiences with Gatineau.

I intend on using up my half bottles of stuff I have lying around (one of my New Years resolutions) before delving into this regime, however I have smelt it and it’s mmm :-).

At 400mls bottles, I have a feeling they will last me until next Christmas lol. It also came with the travel bag which is gonna be my new make up bag!
