Perfectly Prepped with Mama Mio’s New Tummy Rub Scrub!

Being pregnant definitely makes you more aware of your skincare routine and of the products you use and the effects/reactions they can have on your skin or, even potentially, on your unborn baby. Now, I’m not saying that I’m not one to indulge in a bit of pampering as I definitely do. But what I can confess is that I’m lazy and often, time poor when it comes to actually

Oh, it’s just a bit of seasonal dandruff!

As soon as that flakey scalp appears and the itching starts (oh, how satisfying is it to scratch that itch that is, until that intense panic moment kicks in), head on over to your enlarged mirror to inspect closer and then further freak out – OMG I’ve got nits! (Head lice for those that don’t know.) The following few minutes pass by with the thoughts: What am I going to

My January saviours

And we’ve survived! Can you believe it? The toughest month of the year is actually over! We can all officially start drinking and wearing sparkles again! Most people moan about January – the weather, their bank balances and just how things would just generally be better if it was summer again! Me? Well, I can’t say that I’ve had a bad January! In fact, I can go as far as

Okay, so this post is specifically dedicated to those of you who suffer from dry lips and still want to wear a matte lip product…shhh, keep reading I think I have found that bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow!

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. Retailers have started their ‘cyber weekend’ offers earlier and earlier and whilst this is utter temptation, I’m looking at it on the plus side…time to

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! If you really want to treat yourself or that special someone, then going down the more luxury, beauty or lifestyle calendar is the way forward.  There is nothing more indulgent than the new forms of advent calendars that are now on the market.  Ranging from beauty,

With a local distribution centre, we now can get our hands on this cult brand and benefit from free standard shipping over £25!

It’s officially time to go crackers with Space NK!

Pinch, punch, it’s the first day of the month, and hopefully, it’s officially the start of actual Autumn. We’ve seen the leaves turn red – as they do around this time – but where is that chill factor that justifies staying indoors, wrapped in cosy knits with a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of red wine (depending on what takes your fancy)? Well, it may be slightly mild

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. MAC was the brand that got me wearing bright orange and yellow eyeshadow (yes, that was a look when I was 18) and it was the brand
