Tarte Brow Mousse in Taupe

 Another hair throwback in this post.. does anyone else stockpile review photos? I will have a day of photographing and creating draft posts and then throughout the month I pick and choose what I want to talk about based on excitement or whether I feel I’ve used the product for long enough. This is why [...]

Nails Inc Porchester Square

I don’t know what it is recently but I cannot take good nail pictures to save my life. Luckily you can see enough to get the general idea and it’s a pretty popular colour so I’m fairly certain you will have all seen this somewhere before. I had heard the likes of VivianaDoesMakeup rave on [...]

Todays beauty post features a throwback to my brightly coloured hair. I really wish it went with more because I loved it until it faded, so bold and with these lipsticks.. pow! I picked these up while we were in New York in January, I hear so much from my US YouTubers about Wet n [...]

Benefit Gimme Brow

I’ve seen promotion for this brow gel for what seems like years and several of you have asked me whether I was planning on reviewing in when it launched, my answer was always no. I had read that it was a fibre mascara for your brows and knowing how messy some fibre mascaras can be [...]

New In

Next Best Thing

*How horribly unflattering is this? I don’t quite know how it happened but occasionally I’ll take photos such as this and between one week and the next and outfit can make me look like I’ve lost/gained a stone.. I’m thinking of a  separate post on this subject* You may remember my posting about this Fluro [...]

NYC City Blackout

This was the best picture of a bad bunch so apologies for that but I wanted to share what was my rebellious Valentines manicure. I dyed my hair purple BEFORE taking these pictures – #bbloggerfail – and there seems to be some kind of mystery fluff on my index finger but if we could ignore [...]

Spring Watch

It’s wishlist time again, I failed the no buy February miserably but I did pretty well to avoid the shops. Unfortunately online shopping is too much of a temptation.. here’s what’s tempting me for the coming month. Since I saw the tshirt version of this sweatshirt on galmeetsglam I wanted it so when I saw [...]

LUSH Ultrabland Cleanser

I have almost finished this tub so I thought it was about time I write my review. Anytime I’ve mentioned cleansing balms I’ve had several people tell me I MUST try LUSH Ultrabland so I was expecting bug things when I finally picked it up. As the name suggests it’s suitable for all skintypes and [...]

Absolutely NOT A Sponsored Post

This is going to be a rant – you’ve been warned. On several occasions since I educated myself on sponsorship law last year I’ve had issues with PR companies trying to get around disclosures and in many cases pulling out of working with me because I insist on including them. A handful of times they [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 5

Above is a snapshot of our last day in the city, there are so many things we decided not to do because it was so cold we knew we’d just be miserable. Last time we were there it was the same time of year but we were not as central so we had no choice [...]

The Best Beauty Gift?

The best beauty gift may seem obvious to you but your dream product may be your best friends nightmare. Perfume is especially difficult to buy for someone else, a very tricky area indeed as tastes vary massively with fragrance. My friends Laura and Carolyn bought me this Chanel Coco Mademoiselle for my recent birthday and [...]

Flashback post today from earlier this month when my hair was still a regular colour and I went out for my birthday with Emma – link – and Laura – link – and our respective partners. Hilarity ensued. But really though, this was my hurried makeup job before rushing off to collect Emma and her [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 4

Day 4 was our wedding anniversary so we wanted to amp it up a little, breakfast at the 30 Rock, Lunch at The Plaza and cocktails with dinner. I even found somewhere that sold individual cakes that yes were still way too big but affordable enough that I could justify one for just the two [...]
