January Empties

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

Today I wanted to talk about all of the products that I’m saying goodbye to from the first month of 2018! With empties, I started them because I tried doing project pans and they didn’t work for me so I thought sharing my empties would be more interesting and a lot less pressure for me. Something I wanted to introduce this year was a running total of all of the products used this year and the value of the products used so that I could see how much I’d actually used up! I’m really excited about it. I hope that you enjoy and I hope that you find this interesting!

Review: LUSH Caca Rouge, Henna Hair Colour

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

I’ve been wanting to look after my hair more, recently, and one of the ways that I’ve chosen to do that is to stop using permanent hair dye, because I know that the build up of all of the boxed dyes was really doing a number on my hair. For the last three months, I’ve not touched my hair, except to try and lift some of the dye off of it with a hair dye remover. Originally my plan was to lighten it as much as I could to try and get it back to the original colour but I’ve since been swayed otherwise and have decided to keep trying to dye my hair a copper tone, because I think that’s the colour that I like best against my skin. I was going into LUSH for a present and while I was there, I decided to pick up one of their henna dyes to try and dye my hair with. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever used and I really wanted to talk about it as an alternative to traditional hair dyes! I hope that you enjoy!

Review: LUSH Holiday Products Pt. 1

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

Since my LUSH Holiday Wishlist, I have had gifts bestowed upon me for editorial consideration and seeing as I have the opportunity to comment on the products I’d previously wishlisted, I thought I’d be able to give a bit more insight into the LUSH Holiday products. I plan to do this in a few parts as I use and enjoy the products. Today’s post will feature moisturising products! I hope that you enjoy!
