Beauty – New To Me Products

Hello! It’s been a while, no? My laptop hard drive died, so it was impossible to get any blogging done until I had it fixed, which took a little longer than anticipated. I’ve been trying to make a plan to get back into blogging with at least one entry a week, so we’ll see how that goes. To start with, here’s a bunch of make up and skincare I’ve been using over the past couple of months that I’m quite impressed with. Anything that makes me look less tired is a winner in my book!

1. Philosophy – Miracle Worker Overnight
I’ve been a philosophy convert for a few years now. I adore their hydrating serurm, and I’ve used their Hope in a Jar moisturiser a number of times over the last couple of years. I recently needed a night cream that would help this tired mumma face feel a little bit more nourished in the mornings when I woke up. I wanted to feel like a Disney Princess gif waking up, and not so much like a Gremlins gif first thing in the morning after a night of broken sleep. So I hopped over to Adore Beauty and had a look around when I had a promo code to use and settled on the philosophy Miracle Worker Overnight. It’s an age-resetter, anti-wrinkle moisturiser which is exactly what I needed. I struggle with night creams because I often find them far too oily and rich for my skin, but this one is perfect. It seems dense at first, but it glides on so nicely, and my skin soaks it up straight away. In the mornings I’ve noticed my skin still feels moisturised without being greasy and it’s been a real winner for this normal-to-dry complexion. I love it and will definitely be repurchasing when this generous pot runs out (which I don’t see happening soon because a little bit goes a loooong way).

Having a sister who lives in Europe is a tremendously beneficial thing. I got surprised with the latest Urban Decay Smoky Palette at Christmas, which I hadn’t even asked her to buy for me! She was lucky enough to be in Barcelona recently (I know, right?) and visited the massive Sephora store there (seriously, Google… Continue reading ->

Beauty – Lancôme Visionnaire 1 Minute Blur Instant Perfector

Recently the kind folks at adorebeauty.com.au reached out to me and asked if I would like to try a product from their Lancôme range and I practically jumped into their website to browse immeditately. I’ve been wanting to try Lancôme anything for ages, but given that the price points are generally at the higher end… Continue reading ->

Lately – October Landscape

Uniqlo cardi

I’ve been AWOL here lately, I know. It’s a combination of having a bunch of stuff going on in our new house, being sick all week, and just trying to do a bunch of stuff that I can blog about later (watch movies, read books, catch up on TV). And it’s also been a little… Continue reading ->
