Soap, Glory, and a Bit of a Ramble

I blogged about the uh-mazing Soap and Glory offer I bagged in Boots here and despite most of the products being awesome and well worth the £25 i paid for the lot, I've placed two of the products on the highest of high pedestools.



I know there's a gazillion different types of scrubs and a lot of people already have their faves, but this. smells. fantastic. I've never actually been one for regular exfoliating, getting out of the shower to put it on, to get back into the shower to rinse it off, especially when in a flustered rush in the morning, always seems like a bit of an effort. Buuut I've skipped a step and use this as I would shower gel and it's doing the same tricks. Even after rinsing it of it leaves the gorgeous syruppy smell for a couple of hours.




Its quite a big pot and a little seems to be going a long way, which is a win if it's on offer as buying one full price will set you back £9.45 in Boots and that's so much more than I'd ever normally spend on everyday skincare - should probs start saving the coppers now for when it runs out.



To be honest I had sort of disregarded these, facewipes are yet another thing I get a little enraged about buying, as I'd rather spend my hard earned dollar on stuff that'll make my face look nicer, not take said stuff off. But I saw Fleur mention them in a vlog so gave them a chance. They have the typical soap and glory ultra-clean scent which I love, and don't sting around the eye area at all . One wipe takes off a full face of make up and they contain glycerin to make your face baby bum soft. Only con again is the price but all Soap and Glory is 1/3 off in boots at the moment so you can get them for £2.73. I'm deffs going to stock up on Saturday.

Urgh I attempted another outfit post today after work, if I want this to be a regular thing I'm blates going to need a tripod, balancing my big ol camera on the edge of the bed whilst running from the self timer is a bit rubbish. I also look ultra uncomfortable, I'm clearly a "behind the scenes" gal.



I always feel scruffy at work, could be because that trusty cardigan is yonks old and has clearly seen better days. Or it could be the roots which are really starting to get to me, so much that I almost grabbed a brown dye t'uther day : O

Hope everyone's had a good Wednesday, the weekend countdown always starts on a Wednesday evening for me and this Sunday I'm going to look at the wedding venue again and I cannot wait.



Isn't it rather pretty? Hurry up please 2012

  8. I love that outfit :) And thanks for the comment. In reply, I get that orangey effect with editing - in Photoshop (or something similar) you apply a light orangey-brown layer and set it to multiply or darken :) ♥

  13. the make up wipes look really nice!! i always end up paying about that for the cheapest of wipes normally so this is quite a bargain!xx

  14. No worries :) But no, not a layer mask. Just make a new layer (Ctrl+shift+N) and then fill it with the paint bucket, then in the layers toolbar there's a dropdown box that will say normal in it, click that and find multiply :) You might want to change the opacity as well ♥
