Do you instantly stockpile it? Find a dupe? Mourn over it for a few hours and then get over it? What do you do when your favourite product gets discontinued? I want to know!

I guess it all depends on the love you have for the product in question. I'm asking this because last week I received some bad news. My beloved Lush The Comforter Shower Cream is to be discontinued.




When talking beauty favourites it's easy to go with the grain, sharing more of what's new in and popular. But what about the stable products you know you can rely on. They may not be new or in glossy magazines anymore but they still deserve praise.

Gold Stork Scissors £3.49 
Why have normal scissors when you can have stork scissors, right? Perfect for any crafter or desk perfectionist these golden scissors are some truly Pinterest worthy. Super cheap and from a UK seller. 


Today I thought I'd talk about something a little different - self-care. Because self-care plays a huge role in my life and has been one of the main ways I've overcome most of my anxiety problems. 

But with brighter weather and longer feeling days I've realised it's easy to push self-care aside, living life that bit faster and with a little less thought to what makes for good mental health. 




For the past year I've felt a bit overwhelmed by the amount of choice there now is when it comes to beauty products. So much so that I gravitate towards new releases for ease instead of exploring brands I already know I love.

This does mean I'm discovering more new beauty products that I could potential love but also that stable brands I know can always rely on get forgotten about both in my makeup collection and when beauty shopping. 

Realising this has made me aware that I need to appreciate the beauty brands I've loved in the past and make a conscious effort to explore more of in the future! Below are five brands I plan to embrace and try more from in the coming months.


If you suffer from acne, blemishes or have a generally oily skin type then you will know the struggle of finding a non-clogging light SPF that can be used daily on the skin. 

Or should that be should have known the struggle because thankfully the beauty industry saw a gap in the market and started to come out with specifically targeted facial sunscreens for different skin types i.e ones for oily gals! Since then blemishes from SPF wear have become a thing of the past for me and I've now tried many light facial sunscreens to varying results! So as we are in the midst of summer it was a perfect time to share my favourites with you!



By now I think it's been established that I'm a total eBay addict! I'm obsessed with creating my weekly eBay bargain posts, buying everything and anything for my home from there (even my bed!) and having more eBay makeup brushes than I know what to do with!

So I thought it was finally time to sit down and share with you the makeup brush sets and individual brushes worth buying from eBay. For the most part, eBay makeup brushes are amazing quality, especially for the price, but there are ones to be avoided so hopefully this post will steer you in the right direction!
