December Empties

Nivea Fragrance-Free Facial Cleansing Wipes – Another month down, another packet of these bad boys finished. These remain my favourite face wipes, and I will definitely continue to use them throughout 2016.
LUSH ‘Honey I Washed The Kids’ Shower Gel – It took me forever to get through this, and I’m not really sure why because I really liked it. It had a very natural honey scent, with a hint of floral undertones. I especially liked the way the gentle scent lingered on my skin after a shower. I would consider buying this again, if I’m ever in LUSH and in the mood for something summery.
Philosophy Shortbread Cookie Shower Gel – To be honest this empty is mostly Sebastian’s doing, but I also used it from time to time. This is one of those body products that you really have to remind yourself not to eat, it smells that good.
Swisspers Make Up Pads – I don’t normally include products like this in my monthly empties, but I thought I would this time around so you could see some of my “holy grail” basics. I buy these in bulk at Chemist Warehouse, because I go through a roll of them every couple of months. These are the best quality makeup rounds that I’ve found, they don’t shred or the skin and the edges don’t feel hard and abrasive at all.
L’Oreal Preference Hair Dye in ‘Tahiti’ – Although I’ve made a triumphant return to getting my hair done at an actual hairdresser, I do still rely on box dye from time to time. I have two go-to shades, and this is one of them.
Dove Go Fresh Deoderant in Pomegranate + Lemon Verbena – This is another “holy grail” staple product that I don’t think I’ve mentioned before, but I go through bottles of this all the time. I’d say this is the best smelling deoderant on the market by far.

Flowers For Every Occasion

Do you like receiving flowers as a gift? I do, in fact it’s one of my favourite things to receive, especially if they’re a surprise. They’re even more special if they come from someone unexpected. I’ve put together a list of bouquet options for every occasion that may arise this year, to help anyone out who needs a few ideas of what to buy. Here’s a handy guide…

Valentine’s DayI’m thinking a nice bunch of roses this year, and this classic Valentine’s bundle would definitely do the trick. “Galantine’s Day” – Who doesn’t want to spoil their closest girlfriend/s on a special holiday like Valentine’s Day? This beautiful rose bouquet would be perfect.
Engagement: I don’t know about you, but there are engagement announcements popping up left, right, and centre in my life. This all white bouquet would be a wonderful way to say congratulations. New Baby: Along with engagement announcements, there are also babies springing to life everywhere I look. I think this little bouquet would be perfect for such an occasion.

Housewarming: Wouldn’t this look absolutely lovely featured in a brand new living area? I know I would be absolutely thrilled to receive an orchid centrepiece like this one. Just because: To be honest, I’d be tempted to send myself this beautiful bouquet. It’s just that lovely.
