Better late than never, I’m finally getting round to writing up the August Empties post now that we are 2 weeks into the month. Shameful beauty blogger eh?!
Anyway as I’m writing this, it’s a sunny but freezing day and I’m officially 37 weeks pregnant. I love writing my empties post’s as it’s always fun to see how much I’ve managed to clear out that month but also to share my thoughts on different products I’ve used. In August I used up an outstanding 8 products ranging from skincare to body care and it’s now time to share my thoughts.
After being introduced to the world of Origins skincare a few weeks ago, I’ve found myself browsing their website and Instagram page more and more and creating a wish-list of products that I’m now absolutely desperate to try.
Rather than give you a huge list to read through, I thought I’d pick my top 5 products that I really want to try out and plan to treat myself to now that I’m on maternity leave.
This week I had the absolute pleasure of being one of the lucky selected few to attend the #DiscoverOrigins event in the new York store hosted by the lovely Em Sheldon.
I will hold my hands up at this early stage and say that Origins was not a brand I had ever tried. I was familiar with them and had seen Em rave about their products but had never plucked up the courage to spend the pennies in case it didn’t work for me. If you’re familiar with York, then the store is located down Stonegate near Little Betty’s and occupies the most characterful building with impressive original beams and slightly wonky feeling. This is part of the charm of a lot of buildings located in York and is one of the many reasons I love living a stone’s throw outside the city.
