Clarins Jolie Rouge Brilliant Lipstick Review

 My current lip-love is the beautiful Jolie Rouge Brilliant lipstick from Clarins. Actually: that, and the Chanel La Favorite from the Spring collection, but the Chanel is a little drying at the moment whereas the Clarins is ultra-moisturising. It has a really juicy texture and a sparkling finish that makes my lips look plumper and smoother. I’ve been using…

Anya Hindmarch at The Outnet

I’ve just done something a little bit naughty and snapped up the Anya Hindmarch bag that I had my eye on last year. I couldn’t justify it AT ALL full price, but half price? £197. It’s still incredibly expensive for the tiny size of it, but it’s beautifully made and the shape is quite a…

Pale and Perfect Winter Tan

I wanted to do a bit of a perky-skin tan video this week, what with all the snow here in the UK. It’s easy to feel pasty and pale and sometimes nice to look a little sunkissed even if summer is ridiculously far away. I have a little colour on my face to begin with…

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks..

Dior Cherie Bow Palette Review

I know, I know: you’ve all seen this by now. I’m sorry, but I got hold of the Dior Cherie Bow palette about six hours before I jetted off on holiday! I could have taken it away with me, I suppose, but I was too scared that I might lose it or damage it in…

Orla Kiely Heattech Thermals for Uniqlo!

I don’t know whether or not I’m actually allowed to call Uniqlo’s Heattech range “thermals” – they work in a different way to traditional thermal undies. But you know what I mean – underwear that keeps you toasty, toasty warm. The Heattech fabric works differently to “thermals” and allows it to be really thin and…

Omorovicza Starter Kit – Bargain!

Thank you to one eagle-eyed reader, Mo, for spotting the Omorovicza starter kit deal on QVC. It’s £31.56 for four starter-sized products and the equivalent value is well over £100. In fact, just one of the moisturiser samples is worth more than the kit price and there are two moisturisers (day and night), a thermal cleansing balm…
