My Current Skincare Routine

Right now I'd say I've got enough skincare products stashed away to last me through 2016, after receiving a lot of new products from Christmas, then buying even more in the sale (no idea why I bought so many!). It's been a while since I posted anything about my skincare, and now that I have some new products to mix in with some old favourites, I thought I'd share with you my new skincare routine.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

My husband did so well this Valentine's Day, I was so grateful to receive this gorgeous palette. Granted, I did talk about this palette a lot before I got it, but let's face it I talk about a lot of things he's not really interested in, so it was great that he still remembered it! I can't really say that a lot of new makeup releasing have been catching my attention recently. I managed to resist that charms of the eyeshadow palette when it was released, telling myself that I already had so many similar shadows in my collection. When I saw the blush palette, however, I had to have it, and if I hadn't received it as a gift, I'm pretty sure I would still have it in my possession by now!

Slimming World Sunday - I've Reached Target!!!

Just a quick post from me today, as I'm still currently knee deep in boxes and carrier bags from our move yesterday. If you follow me on Instagram you may already know, but on Thursday I finally reached my target weight at Slimming World!

Recent Primark Purchases

So it's been a while since my last Primark haul on the blog, and it's safe to say I've accumulated a lot of stuff from there since! Don't worry, I didn't go on a mad splurge one day, this stuff has all come from several different trips over the last few months (I'm not sure that makes it any better?!), but since it was all still in stock the last time I visited the store, I thought I'd share with you everything I've bought recently.

My "Moving Out" Makeup Bag

It's just two days until I move house now, so the inevitable time has come where I have had to pack the contents of my makeup drawers away so that it can be taken to my new home - sob! I did find find it quite a useful exercise for getting rid of the disgustingly old products I'd been hoarding though! Rather than pack absolutely everything and subject the public to seeing my completely makeup free face for a few days, I decided to pack just a few essentials in one of my makeup bags, which I'll then take with me in my overnight bag. So, here's what I've decided to keep with me in my moving out makeup bag.

My New Yankee Candles

Ok, so these candles aren't exactly new to me anymore - this picture was taken just before I had my blogging break last month, but I never got round to writing the actual post! As everyone loves a good Yankee Candle, I thought I'd still write it - better late than never, hey?! So, all of these candles were actually bought for me as Christmas gifts. My friends and family know me so well! As I've had them for a while now, I can also give you my thoughts on them a bit more...

Slimming World Sunday - Inspirational Instagram Accounts

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! As it's Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share the love a little, and show you some of my favourite Slimming World Instagram accounts to follow. I find Instagram a great motivational tool for my Slimming World journey, whether it be posting my own meals to keep me on track, or finding new meals on others posts. I spend many an evening scrolling through #slimmingworld looking for delicious new recipes to try. Here are just five of my favourite accounts that have kept me motivated over the last few months.

Recent Drugstore Purchases

I've not really done a great deal of beauty shopping since my big Winter sales haul. To be honest, I've looked at my beauty stash recently and feel like I need to use up a fair few products before I go on another big spree, especially when it comes to skincare products! I have, however, spotted a few makeup bits and pieces whilst I've been out recently that I couldn't resist picking up - most of which were bought using Boots points, which makes it much more acceptable!

Life Update

It's been almost a month now since my last blog post, which I'm very sorry for, but I do have some very good reasons for this, which I wanted to share with you and just give you a little update on what I've been up to since I was last on the blogging scene.
