The Black Friday and Cyber Weekend/Monday Edit!

Good Morning and welcome to Black Friday, the official Black Friday that is. If you’ve been browsing the internet this week, or have just been doing the odd bit of early Christmas shopping, then you’ll be aware that it is a discount jungle out there.

Which Advent Beauty Calendar should I buy?

I’ve been thinking about writing this post since July…yes, Christmas for me started in July! Long gone are the days of chocolate advent calendars!

I’m all for progress, and in the society that we live in today, accessing information online is so easy.

Why I’ve fallen in love with Mac Cosmetics again this Autumn

Mac Cosmetics was THE brand to shop at when I was younger.  It catered for darker skin tones such as mine, and was the brand that you simply progressed to buying when you could afford a little more than just drug store alternatives.
