Last week the lovely people at Tesco Beauty (@BeautyatTesco) give Twitter followers the chance to claim a free gift from either Max Factor or Olay.

Edinburgh | Benefit Roller Lash Curl Parlour

My mum and I went to Edinburgh last Saturday in the search for bridal lingerie and whilst walking across St Andrew’s Square we stumbled upon the Benefit Roller Lash Curl Parlour.

Summer is on it’s way and it’s time to bring out the bronzer, shimmer and highlighters to restore the natural glow to our dull, pasty faces! I don’t know about you but the severe lack of sunshine has been bringing me (and my complexion) down recently. I was so excited…

Beauty | Glossybox – Summer’s Calling

After last month’s disappointing Hollywood Icon Edition (full review here) I cancelled my Glossybox subscription once again, so imagine my confusion when this came though my door yesterday morning!
