Just a quick post this week I’m afraid! I’ve been so bombed down by uni work that I considered taking a break for a week, but after trying one of Barry M‘s newest additions to the Sunset Daylight Curing range I felt a post just had to be done!
First of all I want to apologise for being a little later than usual with my monthly favourites. Starting classes this week has made me realise there really isn’t enough hours in the day! I’m aiming to get at least one main post up a week for you lovely people to read, so keep stopping by! This September I got a little spend-happy. Actually every month I’m spend-happy, I literally think I have a shopping problem…
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado has saved my eyes, and I’m not even being melodramatic when I say this! I feel like I’m late to jump on the bandwagon with this one, it’s somewhat of a cult classic, but before now I have paid little attention to the sensitive skin around my eyes and focused on pumping all my money into pretty make up and expensive face creams. Poor poor neglected little eyes.
September has shown its face, and with it has come the usual hustle and bustle of going back to school or starting university. Having just graduated in July, and enrolling again to study for a Masters degree, I consider myself something of a university veteran! So for all you newcomers I have compiled a little list of advice learned and pictures taken from my time over the last three years. I should state in advance that this is based upon a UK university experience which involves a lower drinking age, the Student Loans Company, different grading systems and no mention of American sororities/rushing!
I’ve shown you my expensive addiction to higher-end make up, but today I offer you something different. Soap & Glory is a fun and frivolous brand that has become very popular within the UK due to its cheeky product names, vintage pin-up photography inspired packaging and super affordable price tag!
I have a mix of beauty, hair, clothes, and TV for you this month! I won’t lie and claim this month flew by because it totally dragged for me… late pay-day. Oh well. I’m very happy with my purchases in August and I hope you like this little collection I’ve thrown together. I’d also like to say a quick good luck to anyone going back to school or starting university in September – I’m going back to do a Masters and I’m half-excited and half-nervous! We can do it!
“Before a Cat will condescend
To treat you as a trusted friend,
Some little token of esteem
Is needed, like a dish of cream,” – T.S. Eliot
