    My Lipstick Collection

    I am quite the creature of habit when it comes to makeup, I used to buy new products constantly and never wore the same look two days running, but now I feel I know what I enjoy using and wearing. Over time this has come to mean a nude or neutral lip or just simply a lip balm, I get very dry lips so often lipstick formulas make my lips look even worse so I just avoid applying them. However recently my lips seem to be in better shape despite the cold weather (All thanks to Glossier Balm dot com) so I’ve been branching out back into the realm of…

    Skincare Suitable for You

    I’ve talked about skincare a few times in various blog posts, usually about what skincare I’m enjoying using at the moment. However I realised to a lot of you this might not be useful, I only have 1 skin type, its quite dry and reasonably clear, so I can’t easily give recommendations to people with skin types differing from my own, I don’t know what works for oily or blemish prone skin. So today I thought I’d give my friends and family a chance to share with you their favourite products and how it works for their individual skin type and age. Amy: Age 21 Skin Type: Normal Skin “I…

I have been lusting after their skincare and makeup products for the best part of a year as they were only available in the US but finally it’s made it’s way across the pond and straight into my basket. I’m a creature of habit and have really scaled back my makeup and skincare routines and collections over the last couple of years, so the fact that I have bought so much really shows how excited I was. I just think the whole brand is up my street, its all about less is more, lightweight makeup…

    Festive Lush Haul

    Yesterday I did something very bad. I went into Lush and I did not show restraint. I went in to have a smell at the new Limited Edition Halloween and Christmas products with the intention of maybe grabbing a few. I grabbed more than a few. I grabbed a bag full. I wanted to order them all online ages ago but I thought I would wait to smell them in the hope I wouldn’t like them all so I wouldn’t have to buy them. However I stupidly forgot I love Autumn/ Winter scents, therefore I liked them all and therefore bought them all. I had a total TREAT YO SELF…

    August Faves

    I feel like despite this month being the end of summer, I’ve jumped the gun and entered into full autumn mode already. This is obvious from my August favourites which consists of all the components for a cosy night in….in high summer. So first up is the series that gripped me and Amy from episode one, we thought we were going to have a nice quiet night in watching Happy Valley, after 20 minutes we realised there was no going back and we had to watch the whole 2 series immediately. There are 2 series of 6 episodes, so it doesn’t completely take over your life but there are so…
