Next week, ladies and gentle-beans, sees the beginning of Operation Go! No, that’s not the secret that I am so diligently keeping from you, so don’t get all over-excited – Operation Go! is basically me, getting my ass in gear and doing some serious exercise.

Posted · 8 Comments

I know that this perfume has been out for a while, but I have only recently tried it. How did this, a rose inspired fragrance, escape my eagle eye? The original Chloé perfume has been given a pretty pink ribbon for spring and the addition of rose to the fragrance has made it slightly fresher [...]

Whoever invented this pencil needs to be kissed all over. I know that concealer pencils aren’t anything new, but I just find the texture and finish on this one to be superb.

Friday Flash Review: GlossyBox

Posted · 42 Comments

Today’s Friday Flash Review concerns the much-tweeted-about Glossybox. Glossybox is a new beauty concept; for £10 a month the subscriber receives a pretty little box containing five luxury samples from high-end brands. I think that this idea is both genius and potentially disastrous all at the same time – genius if the samples are always [...]
