Invisibobble

Hang around with me long enough and you’ll notice that I always seem to have a plastic bobble on my wrist. Many have looked at me in amusement in meetings wondering if I am wearing a travel sickness band. Yes, those bands do exist and no, I don’t wear one as I have firmly grown out of those. Although sometimes, squeezing onto a packed London underground tube full of different

Can Seventeen make you Blush?

It suddenly occurred to me, as I started going through some of my older beauty related posts, that I’ve kind of by-passed some of my readers. Readers who may be a lot younger than me, trying to find out what suits their skin and yet may not want or be able to spend as much money on beauty items as I may do. So with that I decided to focus

MicroBarBox.com

Now we all know that I’m a bit of a beauty box hoarder! But if there is a subscription box that is not beauty-related out there, I will also find it – a bit like the crafting box for kids called Toucan Box. You can read about it in my post here! So with my pending birthday just around the corner, MicroBarBox.com was kind enough to send me a ‘Birthday

The House Of Peroni

I’m all about the experience and trying new things. Gone are the simple days of going for a quiet drink or meal and watching a film without an immersive experience attached. Once you’ve opened that immersive sixth sense seen your childhood film hero’s come to life and dined in an exclusive secret location, there is simply no going back! This October, why not take an unexpected journey into an Italian

Joules design your own wellies competition

Do you like the rain? I don’t! Apart from the obvious fact that we need rain for the environment and for our sheer ecosystem to exist, rain is merely a hindrance to my hair (the dreaded frizz) and to my fashion sense! No one looks good soaked to the bone. The one silver lining that I tend to cling onto on rainy days is that I get to show off

Dr Paw Paw Balms

The last six months has seen some of the most reputable brands launch their respective multipurpose balm and with so much choice out there, it is quite hard as a consumer to know which one to try or buy. Each of these balms has its own claims and uses, each with varying textures and prices! So how do you stand out from the crowd and create a brand that encompasses

Sheer Cover Studio Makeup

Having been a total mineral makeup virgin and unconvinced by what it can achieve vs a liquid formulation, I have been pleasantly put right back in my place after seeing what I can only describe as tiny miracles happening on my face! So whilst I have only tried one brand, I thought I would investigate into other brands that are out there on the market and just what they can

Moroccan Hair Oil Trio

Hair is something that I’ve never really indulged into writing about, not for any particular reason, more so for the fact that I consider myself to be pretty safe when it comes to my choice of hairstyle. Gone are the days of underlay bright red hair and tight braids! Yes I had both! Now it’s more of a straight or curly kind of decision that needs to be made, something

Lottie London The Millenial Girls Dream!

If you have younger siblings, cousins, kids or generally are in the know and frequently wander the isles of Superdrug in your lunch breaks, then you would know that the ‘tween’ aka 14-24 age range of makeup products has grown in mass. Mostly by well-known high street beauty brands making a comeback, it’s also a result of the launch of Vloggers such as Zoella, Tanya Burr and Fleur De Force

The Innocent Big Knit at Oliver Bonas

Way back in August (crazy as it seems), I gave you all an exclusive Christmas preview of some of the new Oliver Bonas AW and Christmas ranges launching in store from early October that you can read here. One of these so called launches was the wonderful partnership between Innocent Smoothies and the Charity Age UK. Slightly confused about what I’m talking about? Then here’s a little picture to remind
