I have noticed that in beauty blogger world the newest trendis to use up your products, before you buy new ones. Last few weeks loads ofbeauty bloggers doing posts about Monthly empties and shopping the stash. Ilove the idea, because I always want to buy newest products only because I wantto review for you. In my every day Idon't use so much products and makeup. My skincare routine consists frommoisturiser and cleanser; because if I will start to complicate it, my skinstarts to breakout even more. And I don't have so much time if I am working,because I love to have a good sleep usually at least 9 hours I am sleepingevery day. At the end it means sometimes I buy products which I don’t need soit is waste of money. For example there are new Maybelline Tattoo Eye shadowsand everyone is saying that they are so good and I want them, but if I look onmy collection I already have products like that MAC paint pots. They were soexpensive and still I want to buy something very similar. Okay Tattoo eyeshadows are cheaper, but if could use up my MAC paint pots and then buyMaybelline Tattoo eyshadows, i think it would more money friendly. They won’t disappear so fast from shelf anyway. AmI right? Loads of rambling, but here you can see what kind of products I haveused up, if I honest it makes me so proud, it sounds so cheesy.

Products which I repurchased are:
  • Nivea Express hydration hand lotion - Me and my boyfriend love this hand cream, because it has a light feeling to it, it doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy. Only they could feel greasy after using this hand lotion, if you use too much. We both always have to use hand lotion after washing hands or dishes, because our hands doesn't like water and fairy.
  • Simple kind to skin vital vitamin foaming cleanser - I bought this because in the beginning I liked how light the foam is, but now that I tried Clarins Daily Energizer cleanser I can say, this one isn't so good for dry skin.
  • Clarins daily energizer cream - The best moisturiser I have tried in very long time.

Products I would buy again if they had an offer:
  • Herbal Essences beautiful ends shampoo and conditioner - They both were good shampoo and conditioner, but I already bought some different shampoos and conditioner, I want to use up those before I am buying new one. And I am thinking next time to buy hair masque from the same range. I don't how but both of these products made my hair look and feel healthy.
  • Molton brown vitalising vitamin AB+C - I received this shower gel in my monthly glossy box, if I remember correctly. I loved the feeling it left and the perfume. I think when I will use up my other shower gels I will purchase this one. Downside is the price for 300ml you pay £18.00. So it definitely would be splurge.
  • Soap glory daily smooth body butter - It is a nice smelling product, but for me I can't use it every day like other body butters, because I get tired of the smell. The same with shower gel I am using it already four month, because I use it like every second week. I wouldn't repurchase now for sure, maybe after some while when I will like the fragrance again.
I hope you enjoy this post, if not let me know in the comments. Have you tried some of these products or you want to suggest some other products I am always open and happy to read comments. :)

      Now you will see pictures of my swimwear. I think I went over the board I bought three bikinis. Don't you think it is too much, but one of the was so cheap that I bought just because of that. I can justify it with in the summer we are going back home to my country and there is swimming season I will be able not only in Greece, but in my country as well. Since last time I have been to my country I have lost weight, so my old swimwear doesn't fit me, especially the pants.

Both from John Lewis Top 12.00 and bottom £10.00

     This have been a huge haul for me, but I needed some summer clothes, because now after one week I am going to Greece where is 26 degrees, but at the end of july I am going home to Latvia there will around 25 degrees and my old clothes which I left there I gave to my sister. In conclusion these two years since I am living in the UK, I never where able to wear proper summer clothes, but finally I had to purchase them. I hope you enjoyed this post. I think next post will be review or what I have in my travel bag. I haven't decided yet.

Beauty haul

      I have been collecting this stuff since my last haul. I have had some big splurges and I am really thankful to my fiance, because he spoils me a lot. :) But there are more things on my wish list, so I will save money after holiday, because then I will be able save more. And there are more things on my list to do. As you know from my update, soon is my wedding, so there will be loads of things I need for my wedding. I don't know if you want to see them, it would be nice to help me if you say me what kind of wedding posts you would want to see. After this post will be holiday clothing haul.

First up I repurchased my moisturiser. I will review these two pieces soon. Watch out for that. I went to Debenhams, I took opportunity in offer if you buy two pieces from Clarins you get a gift with it.
  • Nice travel bag to take with me to my holiday
  • Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser 20ml
  • Clarins HydraQuench Cream 15ml
  • Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream 30ml
  • Clarins Multi-Active Day with SPF 15 15ml
Next up I got to buy some travel size products for my holiday.
  • Mini Colgate Total 12 tooth paste
  • Mini Nivea Smooth Nourishing hand cream
  • Mini Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter
  • Mini Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser 
  • Nivea Express Hydration hand cream
  • Nivea Deodorant for men
Now it is time for the most talked about product since it came out in USA. Full review will be later. I bought these things when they came out on website. But they were standing for long time and haven't got around them. I bought these things on offer 2 for £10 on Revlon makeup.

After reading MissBudgetBeauty blog I went to Boots and bought L'oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick in Tempting Lilac £7.99. Full review is coming up later on.

Last visit in Boots I wanted to buy more of those L'oreal lipsticks, but instead my fiance let me buy more things than I hoped for. As I said in the beginning of this post my fiance is spoiling me a lot, he let me buy these things as "Holiday Makeup" :)
  • ST. IVES scrub for sensitive skin £4.99
  • Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion £2.57
  • Lush Sympathy for the skin hand and body lotion £10.45

As I looked on nail polishes in the shop I decided that I haven't enough spring and summer nail polish so I bought three.
  • Models OWN nail polish in Jade Stone £5.00
  • 17 Lasting Fix nail polish in Orange Soda, Sea breeze 2 for £4.

I noticed that in my collection I have loads of lip glosses with shimmer, which I am not using every day. So I bought two lip glosses without shimmer and I love the colours.
  • Revlon lip gloss in Pink Pop, Coral Reef £6.99

      So I hope you enjoyed this enormous haul. I hope this will be the last haul for long time, because I made promise to myself that I will use up all my products before I buy new ones. I have noticed that it is in the trend to save money, because loads of bloggers is writing about it, how much they spend. I think that is the bad side of blogging world, because you want to try new products and be the first one to try new products out and be on the top of the newest launches.

Life update

    I have been absent for more than two months (I think), you know in life happens loads of things. But the reasons why I haven't write nothing I have loads of things on my mind right now and I had a blank page about my blog. I didn't know about what to write. 
     First of all me and my fiancé we bought holiday in may and we are saving for it. We are going to Greek Island - Zante. So I have bought loads of stuff for holiday. So soon will be clothing haul. Watch out for that, but before that will be beauty haul.
     Secondly my fiancé health is bad as well; I worry about him so much. He is very stubborn, I can't make him go to see doctor, but finally I did it. So fingers cross, that it is nothing bad, just too much stress and he needs good rest. He had just flu and after that something else and now it is his heart.
     Then there are more things, last two weeks at work I hurt my back and so I am trying do less stuff, but at the same time my fiancé became a little bit lazy, because of his health so I need to do everything in his place cooking, cleaning, food shopping and more. Before he used to help me, but now he doesn't do anything. It all together makes me really tired and exhausted, I am really trying to have good rest and at the same time do all chores.
      In this all mess my family have financial problems as well. It isn't so much stress, but all together it takes my willing power and energy to do or even think about different things.
     I can't promise that I will be back when I will have time, I will write something. I never forget about my blog. If you are interested after I will come back from holiday I can show my outfits of the week and some pictures. After my holiday I will be on spending ban, so I can't spend anything on me, because we both are saving for our wedding. I don't know maybe you are interested in my wedding. I almost forgot to mention my wedding date is on 28 July 2012. If you want to know more just leave a comment. I hope you enjoyed this update, I know it is personal, but I have nothing to hide from you and I want to inform you that I am still alive. :) 

Sample Sunday - Dermalogica masque

     Few months ago in my monthly glossybox I got Dermalogica multivitamin power recovery masque. So finally I got chance to try it out. Even it is age smart range I tried because I heard that loads of woman enjoyed it. I had to keep on my face for 10-15 min. It is strange - colour is yellow and consistency is thick. Usually I enjoy peeling off or which just dries out, but this one didn't do any of these things. It smells terrible as well. I was in my bath relaxing and thinking about how fake chemical smelling this masque was. When I rinsed my face felt dry. So I washed my hair, while I was doing that I noticed in mirror that I had loads of dry patches on my face. But on the back of that tube the company is saying use this masque when you need a soothing remedies. So I don't know what this masque does, I wouldn't suggest you this masque for pampering nights because I think those masque for 99p is better than this one and price is high as well. 
   This time I didn't enjoy this sample and it is big NO from me. The biggest concern I didn't see or feel big difference after using this masque. Sometimes I like the product but it smells bad, I would still use it. I won't purchase it again.
