Hand Chemistry is a brand that is fairly new to me. It's sold in Boots, and Lookfantastic that I know of and my impression is that it's pretty popular over in England. The brand has a very small selection of products, where each product seems to have been created with a lot of care and purpose. When I had the opportunity to test the Extreme Hydration Concentrate version of their hand creams I jumped at the chance. And who better to put this properly to the test than a girl with very dry hands, in Norway, in winter time?
The last time Chanel released a limited edition highlighter, it was the now infamous 'Poudre Signe de Chanel'. I was on a bit of a no-buy kick and decided I didn't need a highlighter, no matter how pretty it was. Which was by all means true, and still is today. Even so, I must admit that as much as I've ever regretted not buying anything limited edition - this would be the one I've regretted the most. Especially as it keeps coming up in favourites posts and instagram pictures constantly. So when I saw the first pictures of Camelia de Plumes I knew I was definitely going to get it. No regrets this time, and definitely worth it!
Fall is finally here! And with it a whole lot of cold weather and the snow keeps attempting it's grand entrance. It's still not gathering once it hits the ground, but if we're gonna have the cold weather might as well have the snow, so hopefully soon! I've been burning scented candles, going through even more hand cream than usual and hitting the books. Exams are just around the corner, but I'm not that stressed about it and am just really looking forward to christmas, as usual. I think it just might be my favourite time of the year!
I've been doing a project I've decided to call the "Christmas Challenge" where I've rounded up all of my red lipsticks and nail polishes and am attempting to use them all by the end of the year. The lip products are going quite well, but the nail polishes will be a bit (a lot) more of a challenge. Let me know if you'd like to see any posts on this - if not, I have to say it's quite fun and absolutely recommend it if anyone would like to have a go as well! Now for my favourites for October!
I told you this was going to be massive! My "empties bag" was close to full already just one week into the month, and I've had to put things next to it the last few weeks as it was absolutely overflowing. I considered making this a two-parter like I've done once before, but while it's going to be a long one I'm gonna do it all in one big post. So get that tea, or cup of coffee ready and let's do this.
