In Boots We Trust

In the past year I've walked out of Boots with a white carrier bag, way, way, way too often. For reference, my friends and housemates would just snort when they'd spot me smuggling my Boots bag past them, yet again. So after a careful look at the rather daunting amount of products I have in my stash and the fact that I need to fit all my luggage in just 2 suitcases, I decided it was time to call it quits and just take a break from Boots. After a good few weeks (or months?) of going cold turkey, I popped in last week. There were so many good deals, new launches and just things I had to try —for the blog of courszeee. The things I do for you guys...

Currently Reading

Due to my assignments I haven't been reading as much as I'd like to, though somehow that didn't stop me from purchasing more books on Amazon. I love my Kindle, but I'm a sucker for good covers, so I just had to get them in paperback. As I officially had my last lecture (ever?), handed in my assignments and will be writing my dissertation over the past two months, I've given myself more time to read to take a break from academic journals. I try to read as much as I can, wherever I am, e.g., while I'm waiting, during my commute and pre-bed time. And aside from having covers that make me smile, they're such well written books that'll definitely make your Summer reading list.

FOREO Luna - The Cleansing Device You Must Try + Exclusive Discount Code!

There are so many facial cleansing devices on the market at the moment, and it's just gotten very overwhelming. For me at least. Worst thing is that most of the time they all look the same or do more harm than good. I've been using FOREO's Luna for sensitive/normal skin for the past two months and I honestly don't know why there's not more buzz about this than, let's say... the Clarisonic MIA. I've used and got both, so be prepared for a lil' smack down. OK, not really, but something like that.

Rekindled Love

It ain't a secret I've got a not so secret love affair going on with REN. We started our relationship about... 5-6 years ago – it was their ClearCalm 3 Purifying Mask – and we've never left each others side since. To celebrate their 15th anniversary, they've repackaged their all-time bestseller, the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, in a bigger, prettier bottle (75ml instead of 50ml), retailing for the same price. If that isn't a bargain...

What I've Been Loving (June 2015)

June was a bit of a weird month for me. My classes officially ended and whereas I don't know if I can say these will be the last lectures I'll attend in life (I'll report back in a year of... five?), I'm definitely done for now. My focus has been on my dissertation and blog at the moment. Not having to go to Uni every day makes it really easy for me to plan my day and write blog posts when I'm tired of reading academic journals all day. So far I'm doing great on both ends and by the time this post goes live, I'll be busy packing as I'm moving house tomorrow. Nothing too exciting, as it'll be much smaller than I'm living right now, but I'll survive. ;-)

Etude House Knows What's Up

As of recently, I'm lucky enough to call myself a proud member of Etude House's Pink Bird clan, which is their global ‘club’ of selected Korean beauty loving members. A big perk is being introduced to some of their most popular and best-selling items. I'm pretty sure I've already voiced my interest and bias regarding Korean beauty products and Etude makes it so much easier to fall in love with their products. They're affordable, products do what they promise and the packaging is just too cute. I guess I don't need much convincing, eh?

Christopher Kane x NARS Blush in Silent Nude

I doubt there'll be a day NARS will not excite me with their collections, especially when it's a collaboration or limited edition range. Together with fashion designer Christopher Kane, NARS has launched a capsule collection consisting of a selection of lip products, eyeshadows, a multiple and two blushes. Whereas I'd love to try all of them, I settled with the Blush in Silent Nude, as it's the type of shade I don't own and have always wanted to. So hey presto, why not?

The Deal About Double-Lettered Cushions

Just as we thought the Koreans couldn't get any more gimmicky with beauty product inventions, they shut us up by shoving an army of cushiony products right in our face. I'll be honest, I'm very a tad biased when it comes to anything Korean, as I'm just obsessed with their culture and country in general. Beauty-wise, they're just on top of their game. Whereas I wasn't quite sure about the BB/CC cushions out there in the market, in a moment of weakness I bit the bullet and a few weeks later Missha's M Magic Cushion Moisture landed on my doorstep.
