Where Is My Mind #4
So I’ve been absent on my blog recently which feels odd but I just needed some rest. It’s not the only thing but definitely a major reason, the other is my health. I’m wrapping my head around the idea of actually getting healthy. A big part of this is my decision to stop taking tablets for acid reflux. Instead I’m trying to change what I eat by avoiding anything that causes it. Along with this on Friday I’m setting myself back on Pro Points & hopefully I’ll last longer this time round.
I’ve restarted old projects from a few years back. This includes a crochet blanket I started & a pair of gloves that I only managed to get one made! I’ve promised my fella I’ll get the other one done as there for him & his BFG sized big hands.
Pre-Saving For Xmas Haul
In trying to take better care of my skin I bought not just one but four face masks. All very budget friendly Superdrug own brand pieces. Three are to tackle radiance including a glycolic peel & the other is a moisture mask. What I will say is one of them turned me tomatoes red afterwards! This was not pretty but I’m giving it a second chance if it was something else. I’ll post soon about this one as I completely freaked when it happened. It did subside by the next morning but it’s made me a little overly cautious.
I cannot tell you how much I love shopping here for beauty buys. What I will say is head down if you’re looking for Xmas presents as they had Philosophy minis at £4.99 from last year & the bath foams for £7.99.
I’ve needed a new spot treatment for a few weeks now as my Origins Super Spot Remover has barely any left in it. I picked up Murads Blemish Spot Treatment worth £19 for £5 as the box was damaged, score! I picked up a three pack of Mavala nail minis for £7.99 the shades cover Autumn perfectly with a Xmas red but initially intrested in by the shade Black Cherry. Last but not least T.K.Maxx have randomly got Phicians Formula in stock. Only a few pieces but enough to peak my interest seen as it’s an American only brand. I picked up the mineral wear powder brush for £3.99 which I have no idea if that’s good or not but I have a specific purpose in mind. OK, one more thing but this isn’t even mine it’s my fellas. This is the second tube of this hand cream he’s bought so it’s a good sign he likes it. That and it doesn’t have much fragrance to it which is his preference.
I know I’m technically an adult & I shouldn’t be all crazy for Halloween & Xmas but I really am. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a long time obsession that will always have a place in my heart. Every year around Halloween we make a trip to the Disney store. It’s the only time that the range is in store even the Christmas bits which always seems daft to me. This time we got two Jack head shaped plates & a new ornament for our tree. There was a bauble set but we already have two & will be needing a bigger Xmas tree if we get many more! I’m actually thinking of getting one in the sale so we have one for our bedroom and front room, any excuse to buy more decorations.
Oh how I do love Lush, that and any excuse to show how much I like men with beards. Obviously not as much as my own fella but I’ve already told him I’m gonna try at some point to copy that photo. Lush have done this to celebrate the new Kalamazoo a beard and facial wash, which I know we will end up getting soon. What I actually bought was Let The Good Times Roll which I’ve bought and loved before. This is likely to be a permanent Christmas purchase, it smells amazing. I think they’ve done away with the big pieces of popcorn in it which to be honest were really annoying. I also got a sample size piece of Reindeer Rock which I will be using soon as it smells really nice.
