As a long time fan of Kathleenlights on YouTube, I’ve been watching KL Polish since its initial launch. However, as I don’t use nail polish very often and am very picky about the shades I do use, I had been holding off on picking up any of the nail polishes to try. Then came this fall launch, and as KL Polish teased each shade of the fall collection this year, I found myself liking almost every single shade. When the whole collection was revealed, I decided to forget my reservations and get the whole set.

As I grow out the dyed part of my hair and as the dryer winter months approach, I’ve started looking out for moisturizing hair masks to keep my hair from looking too dry. As I was browsing the SKINFOOD products available on the SokoGlam site a couple of months ago, I came across this Argan Oil Repair Plus Treatment Mask (6.76 oz / 200 ml, $15).

My first empties post! As I usually throw away my containers as soon as I’m done with a product, it took me some time to accumulate enough trash to write one of these posts. Keep reading to see what I’ve used up and what I thought of them! If I’ve talked about a product on my blog before, my opinion may have changed since I last mentioned it.

As this is a pretty new brand, this post will be a review of the product as well as an overview and first impressions of the brand.
BYBI Beauty is a brand from the founders Clean Beauty Co, a “modern, luxury beauty brand built on an ethos of high performance natural ingredients”. BYBI Beauty itself is 100% natural skincare as well and is a pretty recent launch, with just five different products available on its site right now. Unfortunately for non-UK residents, the site currently only ships within the UK. When I emailed the company, they directed me to Content Beauty & Wellbeing, an amazing site that sells a variety of different all natural skincare and beauty products and offers free shipping worldwide. This is where I purchased BYBI Beauty’s Prime Time (60 ml or 2.03 oz, $31.89), which I decided was the first product I wanted to try from this brand.

I had originally planned to do another SKINFOOD product review, but I had just written one last week, and I recently got into this new podcast that I wanted to share with you guys.
My interest in podcasts comes and goes. I really got into listening to them on my daily work commute and whenever I was driving, but then the interest died again after a few months. A recent conversation with coworkers about audio books once again sparked my interest, so I went on the Podcasts app and downloaded a bunch of different ones that I thought I would like. I decided to start with Cults, hosted by Greg Polcyn & Vanessa Richardson.
Before I continue, I would say you shouldn’t watch this if you get triggered by descriptions of violence or abuse, as the cults that this podcast covers usually have committed violence or abuse of some kind to its own members or other victims.

Next up in this series, Rome! Up to this point in the cruise, Rome was by far my favorite destination, for many reasons. The excursion just felt better planned, and consequently, it felt like we got to do and see more. The architecture and historical monuments we got to visit were also by far my favorite in the trip thus far and were even perhaps my most favorite throughout the whole trip.

Today, I’ll be reviewing my first body skincare product, SKINFOOD’s Intensive Shea Butter Cream in Shower (11.33 oz, $19 on SokoGlam).
Despite being so good with my facial skincare routine, I, more often than not, neglect the rest of my body when it comes to skincare. I get too lazy to put on moisturizer after I shower, and it doesn’t help that, a lot of times, the moisturizer leaves my hands greasy. However, with winter coming up, I figured I should really get on it, especially because the skin on my legs can get kind of scaly with the winter dryness.
