Weekend Waffle: My Routine

Sorry for the lack of proper posts recently, I didn't realise how much work had piled up on me because of my chronic procrastination (ok, slight exaggeration), I'm just very lazy when it comes to doing work! So I've had two essays to do already, and I've had to do loads of extra reading for politics because I just don't understand any of it, stupid pointless compulsory units!
Anyway enough of that, and on to this cute little post I spied on Nic's blog and decided it would be the perfect weekend waffle post for this weekend :)
These are the things I have been using the past month, however I have recently picked up a few new skincare goodies which I will be mentioning in a post soon!

Witch Hazel.
03. Serum

Thanks for reading,


  1. can you do a review on the L'Oreal eyeliner, when you get some time please :) xxx

  2. @Chloe - Yeah I will do hun :) x

  3. I love LUSH Big Shampoo and Grease Lightening! How is your experience with LUSH skincare going?x

  4. @Ellie - Me too!! I am really loving their skincare! A bit of persistence with them and my skin has made a big improvement, I'm really pleased! x

  5. I'm another Lush skincare fan! Has really helped me out with my skin.

    Would be interesting to know your thoughts on the Natural Collection foundation. Everything I've tried so far, I really like...but it's tough not to be skeptical about a 1.99 foundation! Always so worried about how my skin will react.

  6. is the MAC blush pinch of peach worth it? I'm looking to buy a MAC blusher and not sure which colour to go for :) - xxx

  7. I just got the Lash Accelerator. I'm really curious to see how it behaves, hehe

  8. @ChrissyDee - Thats what I thought, but I have really been enjoying it, I've used it everyday for the past few weeks which is very rare for me with a foundation! And my skin has been getting better even with wearing it, so I'm definitely not complaining, especially since it was a £22 foundation that made my skin erupt in the first place haha!
    @Daisy - It is a really gorgeous colour, I was looking for one similar to the famous Well Dressed and Dame but without the shimmer and this is what I picked. It's a cool toned pink, not peach like the name suggests, and is great at adding a natural blush to fair skin!
    @birminghamlady - I really like it :) Definitely one of my faves now!

  9. im really lazy when it comes to work too haha
    but its gotta be done, and i hate waiting till last minute!!

    i would love it if you could check out my blog ??

  10. If you have a chance, please check out my 'Dare to Wear' challenge for AIDS Charity. For everyone who recreates a look posted on my blog, my parents and I will donate money to The Stephen Lewis Foundation.
