This post deserves a disclaimer straight away: my nails aren’t in their best condition and they haven’t really improved from last year. From a regular bystander’s point of view, their ridges surely signify that something’s wrong with me? Well, as luck might have it, my nails have been ridged ever since I was born so I suppose it’s just their natural state.
Future Primitive Soap Co. is an English bath and body company, founded by Tiggy in 2006. They focus mainly on soapmaking and other bathing products but you will also find the odd perfume oils if you visit their webpage. They’re vegan-friendly, don’t test on animals and use natural ingredients, which are mostly Fair Trade. I decided to test their most popular products in scents that usually comfort me. That just has to be lavender – I can’t imagine a better scent to wear when you’re about to hit the bed.
As you’ve probably noticed already, I’m rather keen on alternative, independent beauty products. I discovered this post on Reddit a long while back and I decided to write a proper blog post about it in case anyone wondered why I decided to go down this rabbithole.
Hello! I’ve finally shaken off my blogging lull and decided to post a quick review of the perfumes I’ve bought in February. Yes, I’ve made another purchase at Haus of Gloi – if you’ve read this post, you probably know already that I really like their perfumes.
December and January have taken its leave already, and I have had plenty of time to test the remaining perfume oil samples that I received in my not-so-recent destash haul. In the meantime I’ve also received some other perfume samples but I thought I’d better check this lot off the to-do list first before moving on to newer beauties.
Remember that if you are not addressing your own needs, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to meet anyone else’s needs.

Ths quote is definitely worth remembering, regardless of your “personality number”. Listening to yourself does not mean ignoring what other people are telling you. It means that being true to yourself.
I’m not usually one for new year resolutions because I always either fail or forget about them (which means failure, right?). To be honest, I don’t considering the switch that big of a deal but I understand those who believe in fresh starts. Sometimes a fresh start is just what we need after all.
Seeing that Christimas is here, I decided to show you some photos of our tiny Christmas tree. Even though it looks mostly the same every year – I’ve never shared any pictures of it, have I? 🙂
More photos of details below the cut!
