Empties – May 2018

I've been getting some great feedback from readers saying that they really love these empties posts. I'm guessing that's because they know that I've really experienced these products over a period of time rather than just snapping a photo before selling the products on Depop or e-bay.

Empties March 2016

There's something satisfying about reaching the end of the month and looking back at what you've used up.

Empties – September 2014

So it's empties time and oddly this month there haven't been too many things that I've actually finished. I can't really decide why that is. I've been using lots of beauty products that's for sure but I've also been gifted lots of new things to try and I can be quite fickle and flit from… Continue reading Empties – September 2014
