Best of Spring Makeup Collection

Posted · 13 Comments

Stupidly, I tidied my beauty room in a hurry. I mean “tidy” in the loosest possible sense of the word, because what I really did was open up all of the drawers in my storage units and sweep everything into them. This doesn’t bode well for any product that has less than eye-catching packaging; I fear that [...]

ASOS Fluro Boucle Jacket!

Posted · 15 Comments

I could have never predicted that I’d own a “fluro boucle jacket” but I do, and I love it. It’s a bright little dose of fun in these changeable weather days when it could rain, snow, hail or ignite into glorious sunshine at any given point in the day. I have Ree from ReallyRee to thank [...]

Favourite Ballerinas on Sale…

Posted · 8 Comments

My favourite, most comfy ballet pumps are on sale at Office – £39.20 instead of £56. I’ve written about these shoes before – they are soft and fit well and look a lot more expensive than they actually are. I’ve just bought a pair in “natural” with the black toe cap and also the navy [...]

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) I am about to start testing a new product from Kiehl’s – the Skin Rescuer. It doesn’t launch for a while yet but I want to give it a proper go before I write a review. [...]

Silly me, never reading any kind of press “blurb”. but I really thought that they were supposed to be bronzers! In a roundabout way, you could say that if you opt for a shade darker [...]

Sequins and Lashes in Ibiza…

Posted · 9 Comments

Two fashion posts in one week – what a treat! This is actually half-fashion-half-beauty, because although I talk you through my rather sparkly daytime Ibiza outfit, I also reveal a new mascara product that, for quite a number of people, will be very exciting. Max Factor’s Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara is a tint that will stay on [...]

Review: Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Conditioner

Posted · 4 Comments

I love this conditioner! I cannot believe that I have only this year discovered it – I think that it is definitely right up there with my most favourite haircare products ever! It’s very light, so perfect for finer hair like mine, but also very very conditioning, so great if your hair is coloured, chemically-treated or a [...]
