Have you found your perfect Liquid Velvet Matte?

            The concept of liquid lips, from my memory, first started out in the form of lip glosses – messy things that I never really got on with and therefore was always faithful to the solid lipstick. Having first dabbled in gloss lipsticks and later attempted wearing matte shades unsuccessfully, I was firmly against matte lipsticks. Formulas weren’t that advanced and everything I tried would

New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

And I’m back! Happy New Year to all and whoever may be reading this. It’s a New Year and a New Me! Haha…I can almost hear you nearly choke on your tea! Such a cliché right!

Four Men’s Fragrances you’ll want to wear this Winter.

I love masculine scents…on Mr J, on me (yes, sometimes I wear men’s fragrances), and just in general at this time of year; good, strong nostalgic scents that transport you to the origins of a particular fragrance’s ingredients. Most fragrances come with a story of their own – some that you want to live up to, others that evoke a memory for the creator that they want to share with

Capture those memories just in time for Christmas with Photobox!

When was the last time you printed a picture? I guess I should answer this question myself as I’m asking you. Well, for me, it was probably about three years ago when I used an image from my wedding day for handmade personalised thank you cards.  Since then, nothing. The volumes of pictures I have taken on various holidays or events end up on a memory stick and on my

Personalisation at its best at Boots!

Boots, our favourite high street drug store, has pulled it out of the bag this year by not only providing their stores and online site as a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs, but by bringing a new experience of personalisation to life for the first time this Christmas! And I’m definitely not referring to the personalisation of the printed T-shirt kind. From personalising makeup bags to body butter tubs,
