October 22, 2014

I have had zero interest in spending money on beauty in recent months. I think the last time I bought stuff was late July/early August and, since then, I have been on a mission to use things up.

I've been stocking up on assorted beauty bits lately and thought it was high time to go through some of my favourites, especially as these are largely affordable and extremely useful bits and bobs.
