Clinique Free Gift with Purchase

I’ve always been a fan of Clinique products. I used their moisturisers religiously for many years to assist with my dry skin. I inherited a couple of blushes from my mom and I still reach for them every now and then. I swore by their Anti Blemish Gel for treating spots and getting rid of them overnight.

Wishlist Wednesday – The Body Shop

If you haven’t already seen my tweet, The Body Shop is having another one of their infamous 3 for 2 specials. Basically from whichever three products you choose, you get the lowest priced product absolutely free.

July Favourites

OMG can you believe it’s August already. I don’t know where this year is flying to but I just can’t keep up. I already feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day to get stuff done and now not enough days in a year. It feels like everyday is such a rush and we don’t properly get to enjoy what’s happening around us. I feel in some way this blog grounds me. It gives me a chance to sit down, think and write about what I love. So without any further ado, here’s the products I’ve been loving for…
