Not dead, just busy!

So little life update, we’ve been very busy and stressed with lots of different things recently. My other half was made redundant which sucks, and then started a new job! We had a lot of different things to do to in quite succession: my brothers wedding, a get together of some friends moving away from the UK, celebratory dinners for finishing exams for other people in the fam fam. So the website has gotten a little left by the wayside, despite the fact that videos have in fact still been being produced, both on my StudiousOctopus beauty YouTube, and the And So Begins gaming YouTube that I’m part of!

So here’s a few of my recent Beauty Videos:

And as a nice catch up on And So Begins, we’ve been playing…

Firewatch…

Near Death…

And other good stuff!

So, now that all that hectic-ness is over and done with, hopfully I’ll be back to more regular website maintenance. Until Next Time!

Finally trying my BEAUTYPRO Black Diamond Peel off mask. It’s pretty thick so I think I’ll get some good peelage! Feels nice and cooling on my skin too. @glossyboxuk @beautyproglobal #glossymask via Instagram http://ift.tt/2tB8eCO

Just used a new Garnier sheet mask – I went for the Moisture Bomb variant for hydration, radiance and signs of aging :p.
It’s a single cotton sheet with a cotton/plastic film inside a sachet. Lots and lots of moisturising goo inside – a little perfumed but not too strong, eye and mouth holes in mask seemed a liiittle small but the masked stayed on really securely without moving around – definitely a must for a good mask experience. Felt nice and moisturising and refreshing, will have to see how skin looks over the week!

My latest GlossyBox unboxing is now live on YouTube – the March UK edition (find the YouTube in my profile) – it contains 5 items, 3 full size: a oolution Eye Love eye cream, a Sleek Eye & Cheek palette (mine is the ‘A Midsummer’s Dream’ version), and a Schwarzkopf got2b Playful Styling Primer for hair. And the 2 no-full size items are a thisworks in transit camera close-up primer, and a Figs & Rouge Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream. This box had an amazing £70.38 value – the highest in a long while, I love the focus on skincare in this box, and the Sleek palette alone makes it worth the cost!

Home made Pretzels! One of the shops nearby used to sell fresh baked Pretzels, but they stopped a while ago – I guess because they weren’t popular enough? I love em, so decided to give it a try, and I’m pretty happy with the result. They’re a bit involved in terms of time waiting for them to prove and then do a step, and prove and do a step – but the actual work involving you physically isn’t that much! 😘
