Products Empties – Repurchase or not?



Howdy Y’all,

Congratulations you have made it through another week! We have a nice weekend planned here is Casa Lifestyle, meeting and catching up with old friends. I ripped the pull – ups band aid off Little L yesterday and I am pleased to report so far so good. (Not sure how school will go today!) I ordered my 2017 diary this week, which is crazy, the end of the year is approaching quickly, which is reinforced by the shops already carrying items for Christmas! I am the first to enjoy holiday spirit but only after Thanksgiving. I am trying to get more into the spirit of Fall/Autumn, there are some yummy candle smell entering stores and Little L and I went to purchase a few extra items to decorate our home a little. If you have not been following the blog for long you may have missed last years post on Outdoor Decoration since then we have moved and have a larger space to decorate, so Little L and I have been purchasing and will post about  it in due course. It is difficult to decorate when it is high nineties outside.

Today’s video is about products I have used till empty. Some of them a fantastic others not so much. So please enjoy! If you are watching on You Tube please subscribe.

Have a fab weekend

Ta Ta for now.

imageHowdy Y’all,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Life has been a little full on around here recently and once again I have struggled with the life/blog balance, but I know that you understand. I am working hard on making time and have been meaning to edit this video for a while. I am very lucky that recently Mr L bought me a new laptop. It is a beautiful bit of kit but it requires lots of learning about, especially in the video editing area, so please be patient as I get the hang of the new software. I have been meaning to tell you about some of my more recent Sephora purchases so here we are. The video is a little longer that I would like, so I wont be offended if you fast forward, but their are some gems so its worth a watch. Grab a cuppa or a glass of vino and put your feet up.

Happy Watching

Ta Ta for now


TLL Guide To The Sephora Sale

Howdy Y’all,

I am like a bus, one doesn’t come for ages then two arrive at the same time. Today this represents my blog posts. This is the last day of the Sephora sale, for those who regularly frequent Sephora you will know that sales and coupons do not arrive often enough, so when they do, JUMP! I have the VIB status which means I have had extended access to the sale and was hoping that my order would have arrived so that I could share my thoughts with you. I thought it might be useful to show you what I decided to purchase. (Don’t look Mr L!)

Mini Mani Kit This is great for travel or in your purse, a total essential and a fab color. Everyone should own one.

Nars Eyeshadow Duo Isolde I have been wanting this for an age but every time I went into Sephora they were sold out. This is meant to be a fantastic duo for blue eyes. Looking forward to trying it.

Tangle Teazer If you have thick hair or a daughter with a curly mane, this would be an essential on your list. Perfect color.

Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit I plan to do a post exclusively on this. I am repurchasing as I am in love but I wanted to buy in the sale as it is a little pricier item. If tempted – go for it.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask I love a mask, I don’t know much about this one but it has wonderful reviews so looking forward to trying it.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser  This corresponds to my earlier post, trying cleansers. This one is very popular amongst beauty bloggers and has won several awards so looking forward to trying.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Dim Light I am the newest fan of the Ambient Lighting collection and wanted to give another a try. I jumped at the travel size which I always love to purchase because if you want to sample and dislike your not wasting as much money. I expect to love this.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Beauty on the Fly If you are a regular traveler in the sky this is a must.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 Sugar Tulip Tinted  Mentioned my love for these is previous posts, did I mention Little L loves them to, hence my repurchasing!! Great tint range, purchase you wont regret.

Hope this helps. What are you purchasing? Send me a note I still have time for another order.

Happy Shopping
