Recent empties

I've been hoarding empties for quite some time, so here we go with a good old empties post!

John Masters Organics Lavender Rosemary Shampoo: I love everything about this shampoo but, since I started bleaching my hair I have to use much more shampoo than I used to before, so this just becomes a habit too expensive for me to keep. Curently looking for other shampoos, so let me know if you've got any recommendations!

Heritage Store Rosewater: This is a staple. Definite repurchase.

Living Nature Gentle Makeup Remover*: This was a gift from Botanical Brands at last year's Gorgeously Green Gathering. I was sceptical at first but I now completely rely on this for days when I'm super lazy or days when I'm just wearing a bit of mascara and don't want to wash my entire face. Will repurchase.

George's Aloe Spray Mister: Another staple, another definite repurchase.

The Rose Tree Carrot & Mango Cleansing Butter: Thoroughly enjoyed using this, and I think I've done a review of this before. I'm currently trying out another oil cleanser but this could be a repurchase in the future.

Bloom Remedies Serenity Slumber Body Oil*: Okay, this is about two years old by now so it's about time it ended up in an empties post. I love the scent of this but I think I prefer it in their Pulse Piont Roll-on or Pillow Mist. Will probably not repurchase.

Herbfarmacy Pure Hydration Serum: You'll know by now how much I love this, however, I just cannot afford to spend the money on this, so I've forced my skin into working with another skincare routine. I still miss it, though (Yes, I'm getting emotional over moisturiser). However much it hurts, I probably will not repurchase.

Myroo Starflower & Orange Facial Serum*: LOVE IT. Will repurchase once I've used up a few more of the too many face oils I own right now.

Bodhi & Birch Rosa Rosa Cleanser and Moisturiser Samples*: Ah, Rosa Rosa, how happy you make me. I might want to repurchase the cleanser soon, however I think I've moved away from moisturisers to another moisturising routine for now.

Bodhi & Birch Desert Rose Face Oil Sample*: Bought a full size before I had even run out of this sample.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: I had to try it to see what the hype was about. Yes, it was good. Very good, actually. But I still think I'll stick to my Avril Mascara, which is about a third of the price and also very good.

Hurraw Lip Balms in grapefruit and vanilla: I always have a couple of these strewn in handbags and bedside tables. I think of these two flavours I preferred vanilla, although my current favourite is the mint.

Decorating with things I love

The wall above my sofa has been bare in the three and a half years I've spent in this flat. Today I finally got around to putting up this shelf that's been sitting in my storage room for ages (thanks dad for helping me drill into the concrete wall).

It has hit me lately that, little gold pineapple aside, I hardly have any "traditional" decorations in my home. By traditional I mean little bric-a-bracs that you buy in an interior decoration shop. All the decorative items I own are in one way or another representative of my interests.

Two books by favourite authors, my mum's ABBA record which she graciously let me borrow, a storm trooper helmet, a cross stitch with a Shakespeare quote and a mini Tenth Doctor funko pop. All items that I had put on the within ten minutes of it being hanged. Items that reflect me. Items that make me happy. Items that make me feel at home.
