Avant Skincare Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face & Eye Night Cream:                       I have never heard of this brand before but I am very intrigued by it. I love trying out new eye cream’s and finding ones that work for my skin. The information card says ‘This delightful full-size anti-ageing moisturiser is formulated with the deeply hydrating wonder ingredient hyaluronic acid! It will rejuvenate tired eyes, promote an even skin tone and minimise the appearance of fine lines and pesky pores! It also has a gorgeous fresh scent and instantly smooths your skin without adding shine!’ This is a full size product and retails for £98

Batiste Rethink Dry Shampoo:                                                                                                      I have used batiste dry shampoo before I really like it. I have never seen a dry shampoo that hydrates as well. It will be interesting how well it works. The information card says ‘These new dry shampoos infused with strengthening keratin, smoothing coconut, moisturising avocado or plumping collagen. They’ll refresh, repair, soften, hydrate and revive your tresses, leaving your hair feeling clean and fabulous!’ This is a deluxe mini size (50ml) which retails for £1.50, and the full size (200ml) is £4.25

Maybelline Dream Blender Foundation Sponge:                                                                                             I have seen this product a lot but never used it myself. I do love using beauty sponges as well, I’m intrigued on how well it works. The information card says ‘This latex-free, foundation blending sponge delivers even coverage and a smooth finish’. This is a full size product retails for £4.99

Hask Repairing Deep Conditioning Treatment:                                                                                             I have seen these conditioning treatments before but I have never used them myself. Again I have heard very good things about them and eager to try them out. The one I received in my Glossybox is a ‘colour protection deep conditioner’ which contains ’kalahari melon oil’. The information card says ‘These deeply nourishing treatments infused with Argan oil, keratin protein, Kalahari melon oil or bamboo extracts will repair, soften and strengthen your hair. The clever formulas infuse your hair cuticles with hydration for nourished, shiny tresses’. This is a full size product and retails for £2.49 each.

-417 Facial Micro Luffa Foaming Gel:                                                                                             I am not a massive fan of foaming gels to be honest so I was very excited when I first saw this inside the box. However, I will definitely give it ago. The information cards says ‘Add this refreshing foaming gel cleanser into your beauty regimen! Simply work the gel into damp skin in circular motions to gently exfoliate and remove your make up! Formulated with minerals from the Dead Sea (typical of -417 products), rare plant extracts and vitamins, its invigorating formula will leave your skin feeling clean, soft and fresh’. This is a deluxe mini size (100ml) which retails for £13.31, and the full size (200ml) retails for £22.71

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019

I have had a lot of ups and downs throughout 2018. Last year I did the exact same blog and I really enjoyed it. Therefore, I thought I would do it again this year. Last year I set myself 5 goals to complete in 2018. These goals were 1. Move into a house instead of a flat, 2. Get back into hairdressing, 3. Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, 4. Save more money, 5. Travel. I did move out of my flat and moved into a house with my boyfriend. However, we have broken up and I am now living back in with my parents and I couldn’t be happier. I have got back into hairdressing as I am now doing it mobile on the side of my full time job. I have definitely got better at eating breakfast, lunch and dinner however I would like to eat a bit more healthier as well. Since I have moved back in with my parents I am finding I am saving a lot more money and dealing with my money better. I have done some travelling this year as well. I went to Corfu in September and Amsterdam in November. Therefore, I think I have accomplished most of y goals for the year. 

Throughout 2019 I am going to set myself 5 more goals for the year. My first goal is to move to Australia. As some of you may or may not know I was born in Australia and moved to England when I was 5 and lived here ever since. I have always wanted to move back to Australia and I feel like this is the year to do it. My second goal is to travel more. Every year I travel to a few countries and I want to travel even more in 2019. My third goal is to eat healthier and start exercising. My job is quite active which I like but I would like to get a bit more toned. I also feel if I eat healthier than I will feel better within myself. My fourth goal is to again save more money. I will need as much money as I can save for when I move to Australia. My fifth and final goal is to be as happy as I can and make more memories with my friends and family.
