Clere-ly a much needed makeover

Hiya bellas, Today’s blog post is going to be short and sweet, just like what my family thinks of me. If they only knew *inserts evil laugh*. Jokes aside. I wasn’t planning on writing a dedicated blog post for the new Clere lotions because it’s basically just some of their old products in new packaging and with a few more fragrances. However, I felt I needed to because trying out these products, has completely changed my perception of things. Let me explain why. Disclaimer: My intent with this blog post is not to offend or discriminate against anyone. I’m just…

Spilling the tea on Chick Cosmetics

Hiya bellas, Over the next few weeks, I’ll be catching up on a lot of overdue posts. I’m finally getting my ish in order and hopefully can get a flow going with these blog posts. Today’s post is all about Chick Cosmetics and when I say overdue, I mean I received the PR drop two months ago already. Yes I know, that bad. Anyhoo, here’s the scoop on it. The first time I got an email from Chick Cosmetics was mid-May saying they’re going to be launching a new line of products and wanted me to test it out. I…

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…

(Belated) LUSH Haul

In the last month and a half I’ve made 2 trips to LUSH Rosebank and as usual, I go crazy with all the new goodies and amazingness on the shelves. It’s an experience like no other. I’m not sensitive to certain smells so it’s a scent explosion when I walk through the LUSH store. I thought I’d share my haul and some faves because some of the products have been repurchases. Honestly, with most of the LUSH products I buy, I split them into quarters so they last longer and it’s easier to store. I only get to use a quarter…

Get your pucker on – Dry Chapped Lips

Winter is coming! Yes I’m a die-hard Game of Thrones gal and I just couldn’t resist. Apart from me not being able to feel my hands most mornings due to the chill, I don’t want my lips to feel dry and leathery like dragon scales. With the combination of cold and damp outside with the heat and dryness inside can cause skin issues for many individuals. Winter brings it’s fair share of skin ailments such as dry skin, chapped lips, scaly skin and many forms of irritation and itchiness. If you suffer from dry and dehydrated facial skin, you can…
