Beauty | Birchbox – Free Your Mind Edition

Last month’s Royally Good box (click here to read the full review) featured samples from Laura Mercier, Liz Earle and Percy & Reed and was beautifully packaged and full of high quality goodies, I was really impressed with it! I’m happy to announce this month’s Free Your Mind box is just…

Beauty | You Beauty Discovery Box – CEW 2015 Awards

It’s You Beauty Discovery time again! I can’t believe it’s May already. Only 2 months to go until the wedding? And more importantly only 2 months and 8 days until my honeymoon?! That’s crazy! So as you may already know I was really impressed with last month’s Natural & Organic box featuring Our Tiny Bees and  Tisserand Aromatherapy. Unfortunately you…

Beauty | Makeup Revolution – Black Velvet Palette

I’m happy to report my obsession with Makeup Revolution’s stunning collection of palettes has reached an all time high. Not only have I recently fell in love with their Iconic Pro 2, Highlighter and Bulletproof Ultra Brow sets, last week I was sent this beautiful I ♥ Make-up Black Velvet…

Beauty | Ciate London – Pastels & Pearls

Time for another Ciate London post! Have you caught up with my Springtime Pastels & Girl’s Night Out Glamour looks yet? This time I was inspired by some rather lovely Peter Rabbit gift wrap I bought from Paperchase. Isn’t it adorable? I’ve loved all things Peter Rabbit since I was a little…

Beauty | Makeup Revolution – Pure & Innocent Baked Eyeshadow

Last weekend I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful 5-in-1 Baked Eyeshadow compact in Pure and Innocent* by the lovely people at Makeup Revolution. It’s no secret that I adore this company, I’ve made that pretty clear in my previous reviews, which include; the Romantic Smoked eyeshadow palette, Conceal…

Blogging | A Beauty Blogger Recommended…

A year ago I would wander aimlessly around beauty stands or counters in Boots, Superdrug and Debenhams until a product or pushy sales person would tempted me into making a purchase. I wasted a lot of money this way, I literally could have wrote a dreaded ‘disappointing products’ post every…

A Chat About Body Shaming & #WeAreTheThey

I guess I’m not what the media defines as ‘plus-sized’, but does that mean that I can’t comment on body shaming. As I scroll through my Twitter feed I read post after post with the tag #WeAreTheThey attached. They are not judgmental, critical or patronising posts written by so-called celebrities looking for…

Beauty | Glossybox – Iconic Hollywood Box Edit

This month I was tempted back to Glossybox after cancelling my subscription last November. I felt that after their bestselling Pop Art Edition in October (which included a full sized Nuxe face mask and Ciate London nail polish) all other boxes were disappointing in comparison. I left to discover Birchbox and the…

Beauty | Springtime with Ciate London

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but apparently it’s Spring! You definitely wouldn’t realise it from looking out my bedroom window this morning but honestly is supposed to be sunny and everything soon… I hope! Despite the weather, I’m embracing everything pastel and pretty this season and opting for more…

Beauty | Nuxe Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute

So I’ve mentioned previously that instead of a calorific chocolate egg, this Easter my mum treated me to the Latest in Beauty: Glamour Spring Edit beauty box (£16.99 + free delivery). This little beauty contained 9 springtime products PLUS a subscription to Glamour magazine – altogether worth £99! If you didn’t already know…

Beauty | Birchbox: Royally Good

It’s Birchbox time again and be warned mega spoilers are about to come your way! I had a few (okay a lot of) mixed feelings about March’s Habitat collaboration but with the promise of a Laura Mercier product I had high expectations for April’s edition. The Royally Good box is inspired by the…

Beauty | Latest in Beauty The Glamour Spring Edit

So I hope you all had a lovely Easter! Instead of a calorific chocolate egg, this year my mum treated me to the Latest in Beauty: Glamour Spring Edit beauty box (£16.99 + free delivery). This little beauty contains 9 springtime products PLUS a subscription to Glamour magazine – altogether…
