Beauty | L'Occitane Haul

14914641_10154707351363493_1321359745_n14875272_10154707351648493_1940627576_nAloha friends! I recently did a spot of shopping over on the L’Occitane website because:

a. I wanted a Beauty Advent Calendar this year and their’s seems like the best bang for your buck.

b. I spent some time in their duty free shop in the Dublin Airport and everything smelled amazing and I’ve been obsessed ever since.

Obviously, the first thing I picked up was their Beauty Advent Calendar, but there will be more on that in a later post as we near December (but I would totally recommend if you’re looking for one!)

I only actually purchased two other items, but I also received their October Beauty Gift (Free!!), and three samples, and a free gift wrapping kit (excellent for blog posts like this, also excellent to rewrap in Christmas paper and use to box a gift). On top of all that, I also received free shipping. To be fair, I did end up spending $80 CAD, and some of the perks came from spending over a certain amount, but I 100% feel like I got my money’s worth – which is exactly how you want to feel when you’re spending money you really shouldn’t! …

OOTD | Autumn Adventures

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Today I’m sharing my first Autumn Outfit of the Day post! This autumn I’ve been leaning way more to comfort and quirkiness than ever before, I’m patching outfits together that I never would have worn before but are pulled together with a cohesive sense of comfort and effortlessness. This outfit is one I would wear when taking my pups for a short walk, or when running out to grab coffee and head to the library for a study session….

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Review

I think it’s about time to do another beauty product review. Today I’m going to be talking about a product that’s fairly trendy, and quite expensive – the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I bought the individual compact in the shade “Luminous Light” from Sephora in June – I won’t lie, it was a complete impulse purchase. I’ve wanted it ever since I heard about it in one of Zoella’s makeup tutorials (or was it a favourites? I can’t remember), and when I saw it in the store, it was too pretty and glowy to pass by, so here we are.

Lifestyle | Shopping for Glasses Online

I recently purchased a second pair of glasses for ‘back to school’ – basically, I bought my original set of glasses from my optometry office, they were hella expensive and hella generic and I wanted something more distinctive but I didn’t want to spend another $400. (yikes – thank god for coverage am I right?!) Like all things that I want to buy for cheap, I looked online. I found a few different eye glasses websites but decided to go with ‘Eye Buy Direct’ for a few reasons….
