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
If there has been one thing that I have enjoyed receiving in the mail over the short period of time that I have been blogging, it is beauty subscription boxes. They really are like a little treat in the mail. I find that beauty boxes are not just all about whats inside the box - its also the experience when it comes to receiving the box, opening the box and having the opportunity to discover what has been carefully curated inside. It is that element of surprise that makes beauty subscription boxes exciting and so much fun to receive. You never know what you will get and it is very much like receiving a birthday or Christmas present. The biggest difference is that you have the potential to receive one every month!
Late last year, I had the opportunity to receive a box from MINTD Box - a truly luxurious beauty subscription service that has been carefully curated by Cheryl Botchway and her team. Each box edition has a theme that suits the month (ie. the current January box is all about recharging for the New Year) and contains a minimum of 4-5 full size and deluxe sized luxury beauty products from across the globe housed in a beautiful white box. The experience from unboxing to unwrapping and the joy of each product discovery makes MINTD Box an opulent affair and a most enjoyable one too. I received the December edit, aptly named 'Enchanted' and with an edit like this, I was completely blown away.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
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
