#142 - July Empties

Samy 0 Calories Fat Hair Root Lifter - this is a godsend for my thin and generally crap hair. I used to have to wash my hair every other day, and it would drive me mad! I'm so lazy so something as tedious as that would wind me right up. But I gave this a shot a few months ago and haven't looked back since.
It allows me to have the thicker, more voluminous hair I've been wishing of for years! And to only wash my hair once or twice a week is amazing, I love it. Doesn't make my hair look greasy, even after four days it still looks as good as when I first washed it (may sound gross but I am made up!) If you have an oily scalp or thin and lacklustre hair I urge you to try this out. Plus it's on a 2 for 1 offer at Superdrug right now, so you might as well!

Maybelline Express Manicure Top Coat - This is brilliant and my current favourite topcoat. It dries really fast and helps my nail colour last longer than others I've tried. This bottle isn't finished, but it's gotten to that awkward nearly empty gloopy phase, so I've already bought a new'un.

Tresemme Heat Defence spray - not much to say, it does what it's meant to, you get a lot of product for your money and it smells really nice. Have used this for about five years and will continue to do so.

Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder - I dropped this and it smashed, waah :( Great powder to dust over your finished face, it keeps you looking fresh but not greasy for hours.
I need to buy another as the one I'm using as a replacement isn't as good; makes me feel abit cake-faced... again, waah.

Toni&Guy Firm Hold Hairspray - Got this from Home Bargains for my holiday and it's a decent hairspray, nothing too special but I chose it mainly for its dinky size to chuck in my bag. Do prefer the small Tresemme Lasting Hold hairspray though.

White Glo Whitening Toothpaste - Got this in a Glossybox a few months ago, only a sample size so I didnt notice much of a difference, but I'm tempted to buy the full size from Boots and give it a proper trial. I'm using the Beverly Hills whitening toothpaste right now, which I personally think works better.

Vitamin E Night Cream - Love this night cream, it's really rich but doesn't make my skin too oily, instead it feels soft and nourished. The Superdrug Vitamin E skincare line is really good, the quality is great considering how cheap it is. Will probably buy another tub once I run out of my Re-Gen cream.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion - Got this before I'd seen or tried out the Samy one as above; it's ok, feels like it dries my hair out which I don't like, doesn't give as much volume or make my hair much thicker than it normally feels. Doubt I'll get it again as I'm so in love with the Samy range!

What products have you used up this month? Anything worth trying out? :)

Yes, it's been a long, loong time since I graced you with my presence on here.
In all honesty I've gone through some personal issues this past month and just haven't felt inspired to blog or share any part of my life with you lovely lot. I hope you appreciate that I'd rather blog about something I'm interested in rather than seeing it as a chore and only blogging because I feel I have to.

I feel much better now I've had a little break, and I should be able to keeep up blogging at least twice a week; I'm going to keep putting up my Monthly Favourites & Empties posts as they seem to be the most favoured lately, but will be including more nail of the week posts, and I've moved my room around (by myself might I add - call the doctors cos these swans are sick! *flexes*) so there's more space for activities/outfit posts too, I've actually missed doing those!

This is just a quick outfit to keep you all satisfied; edited poorly on Picmonkey I might add, I do apologise in advance!
Top, Skirt - H&M | Feather necklace - SunkenRose | Aztec ring - Topshop
Silver ring - gifted | Nails - Rimmel Lycra Finish in 420 Aqua Cool

I'll be back either tomorrow or Wednesday with a Current Favourites post, along with a sneaky new purchase I made over the weekend; I splashed out and treated myself to something I've been eyeing up for months, so I'm excited to try it out!

Please link me to any of your current favourites posts or videos, I love seeing what other people can't stop using :)
