Beauty | My Little Box by Diane Von Furstenberg

I'm sure you remember how excited I was last month when I unboxed the first UK edition of 'My Little Box' - a beauty box concept that originated in Paris and brings with it all sorts of french goodies. I couldn't wait for my next box but when I found that designer Diane Von Furstenberg had curated this months edition I can't say I was over the moon.

Music | The End Is KIGH

Gigs can be a pretty bittersweet feeling. On the one hand you get to experience being in the same room as a bad you love (maybe even one of your favourites) singing along to all their songs, whilst on the other it's all pretty much over in one night. So, with that in mind you can imagine what it's like to go and see one of your favourite bands on their farewell tour!

Haul | Stationery

First off I ought to apologise for the fact that my blog activity has basically been at zero for the past week. I've just started my last year of university and, being a third year who is also in one of the most time-consuming society committees out there, I have had no time at all to even sit down and read some blogs, let alone get something written for my own!

I have however been collecting a small amount of stationery which I thought might make a topical come-back post. Being in my last year of uni I feel like this is my last chance to buy stationery in large amounts for legitimate reasons so I might as well make the most of it!

Beauty | Barry M Showgirl Volume Mascara

Let's file this under 'Products I Bought For The Packaging'. Barry M are spot on with this pretty pink tube... it looks extremely high end with a girly yet not tacky design. Between the two finishes the only difference comes between colour - pink for volume and silver for length. I would have bought both but my local Superdrug only had the volume tube, which is fine for me as I am a volume girl through and through. The question is, will it perform?

Megan Reads | Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

After loving Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park I was full expecting to enjoy this. It seems to have rave reviews everywhere so hopes were set high - how could the 93 5 star reviews on Amazon be wrong?

(spoiler alert: they were)

Empties | Pre-Uni Clear Out

This isn't the biggest of empties post (and it's a bit of a dud after I've neglected London Callings a bit) but I just really wanted to get everything chucked out before I head back to uni on Friday - I'm not one for leaving mess behind so thought I'd get in a quick post before they're binned.

Seventeen Phwoarr Paint (£5.49) - A heavy duty concealer that is supposedly a dupe for Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer at a much, much smaller price tag. It's good for covering dark circles though I tend to use something else on top to make the area a bit brighter. Would I repurchase? Yes.

Tea Talk | What it Means to Have an 'Other Half'

The phrase 'Other Half' is one that can bring happiness to some and frustration to others. For some people, the two words are outdated, corny and irritating but for many more, including myself, there's definitely a lot of truth behind it.
