Spring body overhaul

After a pretty long break and some technical glitches, I’m kicking it all back again with a slightly different post this time. There is something about spring that makes us more determined to go back to our best shape and start dieting or working out again. Unless you’re lucky enough to have strong willpower to do this all year round, which is great and I envy the heck out of you. I’m not that kind of person. It’s easy for me to get out of my workout and eating healthy routine during winter, when the weather is horrible, I can get away with few extra pounds hidden underneath heavy winter coat or chunky jumpers and I need some (read: A lot of) ‘comfort me’ food during that time. So all is forgiven…right?!

Spring, however, is the best time to start thinking and acting healthy again towards losing those extra few pound. I feel like it’s just naturally easier to do. The sun is coming out more often, the day is longer, there is more fresh fruit and veg on the market, not to mention there is extra motivation in upcoming holiday season, for those of us who want to get this bikini body back on track…

Empties – products I used up and mini reviews

I know I’ve just literally posted my first Empties not that long ago and it may look like I’ll be doing one blog post a month about products I’ve used up, but that’s not quite the case. Ever since I cleaned up my space and got rid of some out of date items (surprisingly, there were’t that many), I really wanted to ensure I used up everything I have open and in rotation before I go ahead using another product.

I love trying new skincare and body care items, just as much as I enjoy trying new makeup and for the most part, I’m really good with finishing products. I use a heck of everything I have, be it moisturiser, body lotion, face masks and what not. That’s really the only way to check if something works or not, just by using it regularly. So here’s a second ‘Empties’ post containing some products I used up.

Marc Jacobs Bronzer Brush and Foundation Buffing Brush

Marc Jacobs makeup brushes – worth the splurge?!

I’ve been staring at this Marc Jacobs bronzer brush for ages, watching reviews, reading blog posts etc, but since it was only available in US, I never actually took the plunge to order it for some reason. For me, any makeup related purchases fall into three categories. One that you know you REALLY want as soon as you see it, (even though you may not need it), ones that you like but perhaps not as much to spend money on it and ones that are just simply meh, do nothing for you, so you just don’t bother.

Well, let me tell you, this darn brush was definitely in the first category and I knew I wanted it for so long, that when the line finally became available in UK’s Harrods, there was no stopping me! Of course my curiosity has no limits so I also picked up another brush alongside, which, although not planned,  turned out to be a pretty good investment.
