Last Empties of 2017 and Updates

Hello hello!! Hope you had a lovely time yesterday! We don’t celebrate Christmas, so we had a quiet holiday at home and it was quite relaxing. I just want to document the last empties of 2017 before moving on to 2018. I wanted to see how many things I use up and it’s good to know how much skincare I actually consume. Most of the products in the photos below are reviewed here, so just do a quick search if you’re interested. There are a few things I repurchased, such as the Hada Labo Premium Lotion and the Anessa sunscreen. I enjoy them both immensely, and they are friendly to the wallet. The same goes to Senka Perfect Watery Oil and Antipodes Manuka Honey mask. These are my skincare regulars because they’re tried and tested, and never disappoint.



After using up the Bobbi Brown Instant Long Wear Makeup remover, I purchased the Shiseido one just because I haven’t tried it before. So far so good. I can’t tell the difference between the two, really. I managed to clear up most of my skincare back ups, so I’m going to do a one in one out in the future. That way, I don’t hoard, but sometimes I get skincare samples, so that will throw things off a bit. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t work with that many brands anyway, so that really shouldn’t be a problem!

How has 2017 been for you guys? Mine just flew by. I don’t even remember what happened except that the beginning of the year was hard and sad, and then it got better and things kept changing. There have been ups and downs, but that’s how life is supposed to be anyway. At the moment, I’m neither here nor there, meaning I’m not too driven to do anything in particular. I’m quite content where I am right now, and just floating here for a bit longer feels good to me. Chasing a clear goal can be tiring, so right now, when I’m writing this, I’m in a state of mind that says “what ever will be, will be”…

It might be different in the next few days, because we all know I’m fickle like that. What about you? Do you have anything you want to do, any goals you want to achieve, anything in particular you want to chase after? Are you very driven to do or achieve something in particular, or are you like me and just floating around for a bit until something pops up? Tell me in the comments because I’d like to know!
