The White Company Wild Mint Candle

I know, I know, I know... I'm supposed to be cracking on with the dissertation but I'm currently having a little study break and I thought I just had to share my latest product discovery. Because it is the best smelling candle I have ever owned. Hands. Down...

Getting down to Business

Yep, it's that time in my life when my dissertation calls and I'm 10,000 words away from completing it (having failed to write a single word yet :/).

So if I seem absent around these here parts I hope this goes some way towards explaining why. As much as I love blogging and am regularly distracted by it during the hours of procrastination which have ensued since first starting revision on my epic dissertation subject, I'm afraid that duty calls and as much as I have prayed, pleaded and pouted this project just isn't going to write itself. Why God whyyyyyy...

I don't want to say goodbye to blogging totally from now until May (the old hand-in) so what I'll do is blog whenever I have a spare minute or I make a makeup discovery that I just can't not share. In the meantime it would be really handy if you guys had any suggestions on what you'd like to see on ETC (that's Elle Tres Chic y'all) or if you have any uni/dissertation related questions you'd like to ask (I know I had loads before I started)

So that's it. I'll be signing off for a teensy while but to be honest I think the draw of old Blogger will have me back in no time!

Love Elle xo

Liebster Award

I wasn't really sure what the Liebster Award was, but I kept seeing it popping up on blogs and then I was lucky enough to be nominated by the lovely India from Touchscreens and Beauty Queens (go check out her blog she's a babe). Basically it's a way to recognise bloggers who are new to blogging or have under 200 followers and it's a chance to boost your own blog (if you're nominated) and make new friends/find new blogs in the process... And who doesn't like making new friends and finding incredible blogs along the  way?

Bedroom Musings

Bedroom Musings

Recently when scrolling through the pages of the old www. I came across Rebecca whose  beautiful instagram and blog "From Roses" have had me lusting after an interior tweak in the form of these little additions seen above...

If you suffer from dull-looking skin in the winter like me then fear not... I think I may have just found "glow" in a bottle...

Banish Bags...

If you're anything like me then you'll know that wrestling against those pesky dark circles can be an absolute mission - too light a concealer and you end up sporting grey under-eye bags, too dark and you're just adding to the problem.

Which is why Bobbi Brown thought it wise to correct before concealing... It's been a revelation!

Maybelline Baby Skin

Who else was excited to see the launch of Maybelline Baby Skin? I always find it really hard to find good primers at reasonable prices so I was super excited to try Baby Skin out as soon as I could get my hands on it...

Favourites of 2013

This is by no means extensive as I've set myself a challenge of limiting myself to one favourite per category, and thought I haven't completely succeeded in keeping every answer to one favourite, here's a slimline version of my favourite's of 2013...

MAC Soft and Gentle

After lusting after M.A.C's Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle for some time I was finally lucky enough to get my hands on it when Santa left it in my stocking... what a babe. Since then it has quickly become one of my fave face products ever. (That's right, big praise!)
