‘Suit’ Up!

Earlier this week we went to look at some cars, as you know I’d been contemplating getting a little runaround for me in addition to our ‘family’ car which Lee takes to work every day. During the winter it can be a pretty painful walk to work and I don’t even consider leaving the house [...]

Always A Bride? *sp

I only got married 2 years ago but we had a very small ceremony soon after Milo was born and we knew we wanted to do something else in the future. We had originally wanted to get married in Vegas but you know how it is, families have their way, don’t they? When our friends [...]

Fix Me!

I haven’t visited a hairdresser since I last made steps to go blonde from very dark brown back in March 2012.. madness! I had a hairdressing a contact, friend of a friend type who used to come over and do my highlights for me for a while but it was the same every time and [...]

Neon Babylips – Pink Shock

 This is one of my favourite things I brought back from the states earlier this year because I’m just not convinced it will ever come to the UK. It might of course, it took long enough for them to give us regular baby lips so they’re bound to take their sweet time with any subsequent [...]

Maybelline Age Rewind – Under Eye Brightener

I loved the concealer from this Age Rewind line so when I saw a ‘brightener’ I HAD to try it. It’s supposed to be a treatment for dark circles as well as a cosmetic but I take those claims with a pinch of salt.. if it serves its basic purpose I’m happy.. and it does. [...]

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 [...]

Lipsticks From Wet’n'Wild

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

I’ve seen this sweatshirt (and the tshirt version) a hundred times and I loved it but had no idea how affordable it was.. I don’t know if there was some crazy expensive designer version of this that was then ripped off by various eBay sellers but here’s where I bought mine – link- it’s also [...]

Car Shopping *sp

*picture is the product of our last car hunt – okay the kid in me giggled at that.. car hunt* You may remember yesterday I mentioned that I was considering buying a car of my own. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while but once the worst of winter is out of [...]

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 wish list

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 [...]
