Beauty | My Moisturising Miracle Workers

So the dark, cold Autumn nights are in full swing. I’m literally sitting here wearing a onesie and drinking hot chocolate (Green & Blacks, whipped cream and mini marshmallows – the ultimate combination) – Summer is well and truly over! My makeup doesn’t really change that dramatically from season to season but my skincare definitely does. As…

Beauty | Battle of the Primers – MUA Vs Makeup Revolution

A few years ago the concept of using a primer was totally new to me, it seemed a like a bit of a fad the beauty industry had made up to squeeze even more money out of me! At first I thought of them as products for more high-end beauty…

October’s Disappointing Products

This is the first in a series of monthly posts that look at all the products I’ve found myself a little disappointed with. I always feel a bit guilty writing about products that I have mixed feelings about and even downright dislike, especially when the products are from brands and…

Beauty | Barry M ‘Silk’ in Orchid, Forest & Poppy

Okay, I finally give into hot water bottles and dark early nights – it’s officially Autumn. There are some things I love about Autumn; the colours for one, the trees in the woods next to my house are starting to look pretty spectacular; the cinnamon scented Yankee Candles burning on…

Christmas Time at Lush – Butterbears & Snow Fairies

This weekend I finally managed to visit Lush and buy some Christmas goodies – I think I’m probably the last beauty blogger in the world to do a ‘Lush Christmas Haul’ post but here’s mine anyway! To be fair this isn’t really a shopping ‘haul’ I only bought three products;…

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

I really can’t keep myself out of Superdrug right now, I guess that’s pretty obvious from my last three posts! The Vitamin E skin care range includes skin oil, makeup remover, radiance eye cream, ‘superbalm’ (that ‘softens and calms’ dry skin on hands, heels, elbows, lips and conditions nails and…
