M&S Rhubarb & Custard Sparkling Drink (DELISH - going to go and stock up)

I have actually found it extremely satisfying to use something up completely, as I have so many half full products cluttering up my bedroom and bathroom.  I have also tried to only buy products I know I don't already have something very similar of that I need to use up (i.e. I haven't bought any moisturisers or shower gels as I already have so many I need to get through). So it's sort of like a shopping ban on items that although I may see on my shopping trip and want to try as it looks interesting, I won't buy as I know I already have too many similar items at home that I NEED to use up first. So far it's working! 

Have you been collecting empties for reviews? Or just tried to stop yourself buying too many of one thing?

  4. I am in love with rose scents. I would love to get the Ayuuri shower gel. Your reviews are pretty convincing lol. But I trust ONLY your reviews because some bloggers just say everything is amazing and its not believable. Also do you think that the sparkling drink brand would be available in the US? Thanks Zoe(: I am addicted to your blog!

  39. Love your video's! I'm going to sounds like a right loser to say I wish you could do more, obviously that's not possible! Anyway, love how you've edited that picture at the top, infact love how you always edit your pictures to make them all vintage-y and lovely. Do you use a website or program or something..? Do tell? :D x

  40. I love empties videos! They're so helpful :) I use Johnson's baby oil as eye makeup remover, however it leaves a slight film on my eyes and then I can't read at night. You must rinse your eyes a bunch to be able to see clear again.

  85. I'm currently working my way through all of my shampoos. Whenever I use up the conditioner that pairs with it, I want to buy a different brand. And since I use so much conditioner compared to shampoo, I am now left with a billion different shampoos. lol :)
