News! And a Teeny Haul!

Hello everyone, blimey its been ages since I last posted! I've been so stressed out with uni work its ridiculous, but here I am finally sitting at my laptop and able to get a blog post up! (On a Saturday night might I add, I really do love you guys!) 

Firstly I wanted to share my first ever guest post that I wrote for a Sal over on Novarellie ! I did a simple little spring face edit, but I loved working with another blogger, and I'm so pleased to say that I have now ticked guest posting off of my bucket list! I'd actually be interested in having someone else guest post for me if anyone is interested? Anyways, you can read my spring post over on Sal's blog here!

Secondly, I have been meaning to do a little blog sale to get rid of some bits and bobs I have had lying around, but in the process I actually discovered this cool little App called DePop, which allows you to sell things simply by taking a picture of it! It's great because unlike eBay you can have buyers gift money to your Paypal as friends or family so you don't get charged those hefty fees! If your interested in make up/perfume/barely worn Topshop clothes then I suggest you give me a follow on my account : lis00045!

Lastly, I have a small Boots haul to share with you guys (as if you hadn't guessed from the picture). I popped in the other day to get the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo mainly because my skin is suffering from horrible under the skin spots, and I've heard great things about this! I have a lot of acne scarring and redness so I'm really hoping this will help to reduce the appearance of that too. I also bought a miniature Smashbox Photoready Primer in Colour Correct to help take away some of the redness before I apply my foundation. I've used the original version of this primer before and I loved it! Another spot fighting product was popped into my basket in the form of the Quick Fix Facials Anti Blemish Mud. As you are all probably well aware by now I am completely and utterly addicted to face masks, and this one was only £3 so of course I had to buy it! 

I also bought the Indeed Labs Skin Sampler Kit. Call me a bad beauty blogger, but I've actually never used serums before! I have saw some of the products from the Indeed range featured on so many blogs recently so thought I'd play it safe with this sample pack! So far I'm enjoying testing them, but you really don't get all that much product in them :(. I also picked up the new Garnier Ultimate Blends Sleek Restorer Shampoo and Conditioner, which I haven't tried yet, but am really to excited to (what a gripping life I do lead)! In case you didn't know I'm always on the lookout for paraben free shampoo, as it washes your hair without stripping it of natural oils, which obviously leads to healthier, longer, and thicker hair, right?! Who knows I may even try my newly found reverse wash technique with these two! 

That is everything I bought from Boots this week! Let me know what you think in the comments!
