Shopping my stash #1

Hello :)

Hope everyone had/is having a good bank holiday Monday. I saw a shopping the stash post from Kat on my dashboard today and it inspired me to do my own after reading Adrienne's for a long time as well.I've decided to do this as even though I'm not on a spending ban I am cutting back on buying things and am trying to use things up. I think this is a good way for me to use products more I forget about or don't use often, I'm hoping from doing this I will re discover new favourites as well as using products up!

Here are my picks...

Cath Kidston Hand Cream: I bought a trio of these hand creams in the blossom scent a while ago and have never used them! It's a floral smell which I don't really go for but it's quite nice. I've been lazy with hand cream so am carrying this with me all week and using a couple times in the day. 

The Body Shop Strawberry body mist: I love the strawberry scent line so got this as soon as it came out. It smells quite alcoholic but even so it's such a gorgeous, fruity scent that's perfect for Spring.

Lush Bubblegum lip scrub: I have three lip scrubs and this is only about half way down despite having it for ages, I just always forget to use them! So I'm making my mission this week to use it lots and hopefully finish it so I can start on my second pot.

Models Own Banana Split: This is the only shade from the scented line I haven't got round to wearing yet so I will be putting this on as soon as I take my current polish off. 

Clinique Chubby Stick Curvy Candy: I got this in the chubby stick Christmas gift and this is the perfect medium pink which isn't too out of my berry toned comfort zone but is a lot more Spring appropriate.

Stila Lip Glaze Guava: I got this in last Summer's mini trio and this has been neglected and looks like a nice gloss to go over the top of curvy candy.

So those were the products I'm hoping to use a lot this week. On next weeks I will let you know how I get on with them, something I hope to do each week.



  1. I love the body shop strawberry body mist too! It smells SO nice and really fruity like you said :)
    Lovely blog!

  2. Agreed! I think I have nearly every product in the same scent from TBS! x

  3. I really think I need to shop my stash aswell! My collection is ever growing and I have so many neglected products that I have bought, used a few times and now they just sit in a drawer unloved. I think I may try and do this to rediscover some old favourite and maybe find some new ones as well!

    1. It's quite refreshing to use some products that seem 'new' as you haven't gotten round to using them get or haven't used them for a long time, it's definitely worth it if you are gonna stick to the products you've shopped (which I failed a bit in!) x
