March Beauty Round-Up

Another month, another beauty round-up. Here’s a quick (ish) summary of this month’s launches and also a few inexpensive products that I have discovered and liked. Oh, and a few Mother’s Day suggestions just in case you had forgotten. As I say in the video, most mothers would appreciate any beautiful pampering treat, so have a trawl though some older … Read More

Klorane Nettle Sebo-Regulating Dry Shampoo

Klorane Nettle Sebo-Regulating Dry Shampoo

Klorane have a new addition to their range; a dry shampoo that actually helps to regulate sebum production! This is great news for anyone (like me!) who suffers from oily roots but normal/dry lengths. Using a dry shampoo eliminates those unnecessary hair-washes that you only do because the roots feel a bit dirty – it also works brilliantly as a … Read More

Elemis Freshskin

Last week saw the launch of Elemis Freshskin, a range of skincare products aimed at the 16-24 age group. This just adds to my long list of ‘Reasons Why I Want To Be In The 16-24 Age Bracket’, which includes “my knees wouldn’t creak like door hinges when I climbed up the stairs” and “I would be able to write … Read More

Moneybags Monday: Vaishaly Cleansing Balm

Please be introduced to my new cleansing love-object, Vaishaly. I say ‘new’, but I have had a secret crush on this cleansing balm for years, admiring it from afar. It wasn’t until last weekend, the day of the In-Spa Self-Facial (see HERE) that I realised what a true star this product really is – there were instant sighs of pleasure … Read More

One Very Satisfied Winner!

I want to post up the email I received from Nati who won the Urban Decay cosmetics in the recent giveaway. It’s not very often that I get feedback (which is fine – I really don’t expect any!) but Nati sent me little reviews of each product she received. I thought that you might be interested to see how she … Read More

My Mum Says… "Yellow! I love it!"

Here’s my Mum with her latest installment. I probably won’t feel the need to introduce her every time she writes something – in fact it might be wise to distance myself from her a bit just in case she writes anything outrageously slanderous. But for now; take it away Mother, the lawyer is on speed-dial and the floor is yours! … Read More

New Dior Addict Lipsticks!

Dior have officially relaunched their new Addict lipsticks; lighter and more sheer than the classic lipsticks, they contain 25% less wax with a gel ingredient in its place. For low-maintenance girls, this means a moisturising lipstick that is easy to apply, looks glossy and won’t look a total mess if applied slightly haphazardly! Die-hard lippie lovers may be slightly disappointed … Read More

Friday Flash Review: Blistex Lip Massage

Here goes with today’s (barely awake yet) ramble! “Wooooo! It’s Friday! Not that that means so much to me, being self-employed. Every day could potentially be Friday really. Well that killed off any possible sense of joy/excitement/happiness. It’s a beautiful sunny day outside and I have to leave for my shoot in…nine minutes. Can I do a Friday Flash Review … Read More

Gielly Green

Today I went to Gielly Green to have my hair trimmed and blow-dried. You may remember the name Gielly Green from my shampoo and hair treatment review a while back – you can read that HERE. My hair was in desperate need of a cut – for various reasons, it hasn’t been trimmed in ages and when I caught sight … Read More
