Beauty Wishlist #2

Beauty Wishlist #2
If like me you’re a beauty addict, you’ll feel my pain when I tell you that I’ve been on a beauty spending ban for the past two months. But fear not, I’m okay, I survived. You’ll feel relieved to read that my spending ban has finally come to an end and although I have loved shopping my stash and saved a good few pennies in the process, there are a handful of products I've had my eye on... 

MAC Costa Chic Lipstick | Review & Swatches

MAC Costa Chic Lipstick | Review & Swatches

Picking a lipstick shade can be difficult for some; red can be too daring, pink can be a tad girly and nudes can be, well boring. But, coral shades are always a winner. And with spring well underway, I decided to dig out an oldie but a goodie, MAC Costa Chic lipstick. 

Pins I Love #3

Pins I Love #3
Gone are the days of checking my emails first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, I now scour Pinterest instead, pinning away in a frenzy, organising pins into my somewhat beautifully arranged boards. It’s addictive. And today my blogger offering is the 3rd instalment of my Pins I Love series...

MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow

MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow





It goes without saying, I own a lot of eyeshadow and MAC eyeshadows are by far my favourite. But amongst my MAC palettes is an absolute gem; MAC All That Glitters. Don’t be put off by its pinkish hues. This shadow is simply beautiful. This oh-so-famous shade is a makeup must have. Its unique and my go to eyeshadow. I’m obsessed. 

An Ode To The Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush

An Ode To The Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush


I wasn’t blessed and born with naturally thick Cara Delevingne brows and in the past my brows have been plucked to death and appeared relatively thin and non-existent. I know I’m not alone, but if you invest in the right tools of the trade you can enhance your brows and if need be cheat their existence and this is where the Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush comes in... 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Fortifying & Soothing 24hr Hydrating Care Serum

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Fortifying & Soothing 24hr Hydrating Care Serum
Any beauty products that get the thumbs up from Sali Hughes are well worth adding to your shopping list. And the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Fortifying & Soothing 24hr Hydrating Care Serum (the longest name in the history of skincare) along with my Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser, has helped to eradicate all my dry patches. 

The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Face Exfoliator

The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Face Exfoliator


Just like cleansing, exfoliation is essential in your skin care regime. Exfoliation encourages healthier, smoother and more even-toned skin and can also prevent acne and minimise pores. There are hundreds of exfoliating products on the market, from electric exfoliating brushes such as the Magnitone pulsar to more affordable options like The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Face Exfoliator.

The Sunday Post #3: What’s On My iPhone

The Sunday Post #3: What’s On My iPhone
With over a million mobile apps available it’s not surprising there is pretty much an app for everything from ‘Places I’ve Pooped’, ‘Paranormal Meter’, ‘Drunk Dial No’ and ‘Game For Cats’. I for one do not keep track of places I’ve pooped, or use my iPhone to track paranormal activity, but I might just download ‘Drunk Dial No’! But jokes aside, amongst the thousands of photos and social media apps, I have a few very handy apps on my iPhone that I use on a regular basis. 

Worth The Hype? Tweezerman Tweezers

Worth The Hype? Tweezerman Tweezers


I had a brow crisis. I lost my pink Mini Slant Tweezerman Tweezers and in this case, I did not have a backup. I for one can’t deal with unruly brows and last week, gone midnight I ventured online & bought another pair - I just couldn’t be without them

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser

I can’t say enough good things about this moisturiser. I have never found a moisturiser that I love, but the Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser  just about ticks all the boxes for me...

Battle Of The Bands

Battle Of The Bands

You can never have too many hair bands, hair ties, scrunchies, bobbles, all of which have the primary purpose to fasten hair. Admittedly we all love a multipack of traditional elastic hairbands from Primark, but no one likes hair breakage. With that in mind, in the last couple years we have seen brands releasing ‘innovative' products to help prevent snags and tangles, but are they really any better for our hair? 

Dior Diorskin Nude BB Crème

Dior Diorskin Nude BB Crème
BB creams (or crèmes), made their debut back in 2011 following on from huge success in the Asian market. BB stands for beauty balm and combines a mixture of both skincare and makeup. Since 2011 various variations have hit the English market and as a lover of a lightweight base, I have tried more than a few and my current go to base has been the Diorskin Nude BB Crème. This base promises to moisturise, smooth, protect, and correct the skin with sheer coverage. 

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil


The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

After disliking the Una Brennan Superfacialist Vitamin C Cleansing Oil, I skeptical about the Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil, but it has exceeded all expectations...

Rose Gold Beauty

Rose Gold Beauty
After recently purchasing an Olivia Burton Big Dial Mink & Rose Gold Watch, I realised I have a slight ever-growing love for all things rose gold. And with spring well underway and summer creeping up on us, I decided to take a look through my makeup storage and pick out my favourite rose gold beauty products.

Beauty Product Empties #2

Beauty Product Empties #2
I have said it before, but I’ll say it again; there really is nothing more satisfying than finishing up beauty products. And as I have spent the last month on a beauty ban (I still can’t quite believe I have resisted the isles of Boots!), I have been getting through a whole hoard of beauty products...

Back Up Beauty: Skincare

Back Up Beauty: Skincare
I’m a beauty hoarder, I have three (very large and maybe a little unnecessary) drawers full of beauty products, from moisturisers, toners, face masks and hair care products that at some point I will get round to using - promise. But amongst this stash of never ending products, I store a few backups of my daily essentials that if I ran out of I would have a mini-crisis...
