Two weeks ago, I mentioned in my previous blog post that I have accumulated quite a few empties over the past few months and just haven't had the time to share with you this collection of products. As promised, here is part 2 of my empties adventure - with a good mix of skincare, haircare and even a sunscreen! I find that with my empties, there seems to be a recurring trend of a few products. This post especially contains some old favourites which you may have seen pop up in previous posts. However, there is a reason why they keep springing up all the time - they just happen to be some of my tried and true holy grails. Read on for part 2 of my empties!Read More
Wow, we are here. Towards the beginning of the second half of 2018 - I swear time flies, doesn't it? Before you know it, the Christmas prep and shopping would have begun. Its a little scary just how quickly time has flown this year.
Its been a while since I last did an empties post and I think I have accumulated quite a significant amount empties. The past few months have been a little bit of a blur and I haven't been so great at keeping up to date with products I have used up. However, I am proud of myself for using up quite a few products. So much so, I do think I have to split this into two parts! Here's a little taste (part one) of what I have been using up since May.Read More
It's been a while since I have done an empties post! With work being quite busy and the move early this month, its been a little hard to take the time to write all about the things I have used up over the past few months. Having looked at my empties - serums seem to have a heavy focus, especially of the hydrating variety! However, there are a few other skincare bits and pieces as well as new holy grail product in the mix.
I have said it a few times in the past, but I really do enjoy both reading other's empties posts and writing my own as it allows myself to know what products myself and others have really enjoyed using, or products that are on regular rotation in daily routines. This particular version of empties contains products that I really have made the effort to use consistently. Some of these I have written about before in other blog posts and others are products where a review is pending! Overall, I have really enjoyed many of these products and it's probably why they have all been used up! Read on to find out more about my March/April empties.Read More
Where has 2018 gone??? I swear it seems like only yesterday that we welcomed in a fresh new year. Now, here we are, in the middle of February and I realise just how late I am with my empties for January. My January empties is probably one of my most impressive yet as I have used up a whole bunch of full-size products - not only in skincare but in body care and makeup too! Read on to see what I have used up in the last month!Read More
Well, not too long ago the eventful year that was 2017 came to an end - what a year it was! For me, 2017 marked a year of new chapters (I got married!!), new adventures (an interstate move) and new opportunities (exciting new roles at work). It threw many challenges my way but with new challenges, it is an opportunity to learn and grow as a person.
One of the goals that I had in 2017 was to use up more product and with that in mind, I was inspired to write more empty posts throughout the year. I have really enjoyed writing these posts as it gives me an idea of what I have used up, what products I really did love using and also a great way for me to communicate what I thought of products, as I can't review everything in detail. I usually struggle to hit empty with products but I found by trying to create an Empties Post every month, I am more motivated to use what I have already opened more. The end of 2017 was a busy one for me, and I managed to use up a few recurring favourites at the end of the year, discover some brilliant new products and of course use up things that perhaps were not quite for me.Read More
This October empties post is a little delayed - I am so sorry but there have been all sorts of developments happening at the moment in my personal life in the past 10 days, its been hard to keep up! I promise that everything is fine, as is the Mr, my family and loved ones. Life just 'happens' sometimes and there isn't much that you can do except take it as it comes and tackle it the best way that you can. I promise that it does pay off!
As I write this, it is getting towards what I call the 'business' end of the year. We are all slowly getting to the homestretch of the end of 2017, Christmas is looming and before we know it 2018 will have come round. I personally can't believe that I am writing an October Empties post, as for me it stills feels like I am in July! Like the previous month, I am quite proud to have made a little dent in my skincare and beauty empties. There are some old/holy grail favourites in here mixed with some pleasant surprises as well. Read on to find out what I have used up over the past month!Read More
It's empties time! It has been a while since I have last posted. Its been a very busy time as I have been travelling quite frequently. However, with so much travel I have had the pleasure of using up a little more product that I normally would as my routines have been pretty streamlined and quite consistent. In the month of September I have used up some favourites of mine which I may have spoken of in the past or you have seen me used frequently in my daily routines on Instagram. Read on to find out a few the things I finished in September....Read More
It is a bit belated, but it IS that time of month again where I share my empties. I have been doing a fair amount of travel lately (I am currently away at the moment!) which has allowed me to use up some samples that I had stashed or some travel sized products which I have been saving for flights or time away from home. A lot of my empties this month are smaller trial sized products or products that are just so great for travelling and have the main focus of hydration. Read on to find out more in what I have used up in the past 4-6 weeks.Read More
Yay! It's empties time and this post has been a little belated (sorry!). I am currently in the midst of travelling and its been a little harder than I thought to get my posts up and running (thank you technology and lack of internet). I think we should be back on track from now onwards. Thank you for bearing with me...
June was another big empties month for me in skincare and I even have an addition for haircare! I ran out of serums, masks and moisturisers last month so I have plenty to write about and won't leave this too long. I find that it is so satisfying to finish something off and this is an area I think I am most definitely improving in. Most of of these products that I have finished this month have been ones that I do quite enjoy using and are things I would look into repurchasing again. Have a read at what I went through over the last month and ENJOY!Read More
Its EMPTIES time again! This year, I have decided to really focus on finishing up what I have and because of this focus, I have a few full size skincare empties this month. This is something that is quite rare for me so I am relishing it! This month, a few of my favourites have been completely used up and whilst it is really sad to say goodbye, I know that I will be reunited with these products again soon (or have already) as I have enjoyed using these very much.Read More
