Priceline 50% off Haircare Sale Haul

 If you haven't heard, I'm here to let you know that Priceline is having another 50% off Haircare sale today and tomorrow (Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th July).  This is such a great time to stock up on all your haircare products and I like to get in-store nice and early on the first day so that I don't miss out on anything.  I didn't go overboard this time, just picked up the essentials as well as a couple of treats.  I wanted to pick up some shampoo and conditioner but I honestly couldn't decide what to get and it was quite busy so I might do some research and head back in tomorrow!  Here's what I picked up today....

Mecca Cosmetica Lip Balm, In Essence Sleep Easy Essential Oil Blend, Insight Timer App, Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil

Sleep has been something that's always come easily to me for most of my life.  It wasn't until I had a baby and had to deal with interrupted nights and very little sleep that it started to become an issue.  In fact, I had no idea it was even an issue until my baby started sleeping through the night (at about 8 months old).  I was so excited to start getting full nights sleep again but instead, I would lay awake at night staring at the ceiling begging myself to fall asleep.  It took me awhile but I developed some healthy sleep habits, so if you struggle with getting a good night's sleep hopefully some of these tips & tricks will help you as much as they helped me.

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow, Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil, Lanate Body Cream, Daiso Sponge Detergent, NYX Butter Gloss

June came and went so fast that I had to really sit down and think about the beauty products that I've been loving this month.  I was lucky to have a couple of products sent to me recently that I've fallen in love with so that's always a bonus and I fell back in love with some old faithfuls.  I'm so excited for July as it's my birthday month, I'm going to my first IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) and my cousin from NZ is coming to visit me too.  Before I get ahead of myself let's revisit June and see what my favourite beauty products were.

Winter is the worst season of the year for me.  While I do like cosy jumpers and being able to wear jeans every day I absolutely loathe being cold and I'm one of those people who seem to feel the cold worse than others.  Or maybe I just whinge louder, it's hard to say haha!  I survive this season of terrible doom mainly by staying indoors and drinking hot chocolate but also by finding any opportunity to treat myself.  And this year I'm treating myself to long warm showers with Aromatherapy Associates Bath & Shower Oils.

The Parcel by Marie Claire - Winter Edition 2017

 A month or so ago I received an email from The Parcel saying that the Winter Edition would be the last edition of The Parcel that we would be receiving.  It didn't give any reason as to why they would no longer be offering their service just that they were proud of the twenty sampling boxes they had sent out over the last three years.  The Parcel has consistently been a great beauty subscription box so I'm a little sad to see them go.  I did think that this last box might be kinda shit since it was their last one but I'm pleasantly surprised at the number of products they've included.  They definitely didn't skimp out for their last edition.

My Beauty Trash Empties January to April 2017

I love writing Empties posts.  It gives me chance to reflect on the products I've used and give a quick review on them without having to go into heaps of detail. This post is an accumulation of Empties from the start of this year to around April.  I've actually used more products than this but sometimes I just chuck them out, especially if they're ones I've talked about lots or use all the time like the Nivea In Shower Lotion.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Anti-Fatigue Foundation, Concealer & Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray

The Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation & concealer have been around for a number of years but were recently reformulated.  This foundation gets pretty good reviews in the beauty community for a good coverage drugstore base product so I was interested to see what the new formula was like.  It's been a long time since I tried the original Wake Me Up foundation so this won't be a comparison post.  Rimmel have also released a 2 in 1 Primer & Setting Spray called #Insta Fix & Go so I'll let you know my thoughts on that too.
