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,

Glossier – One month on and the Pop-up!

It’s been just over a month since the beauty world went into full meltdown from the launch of Glossier shipping to the UK! With a local distribution centre, we now can get our hands on this cult brand and benefit from free standard shipping over £25! A few of my friends have been asking me what Glossier is and what might I recommend. So I thought with Glossier’s one week

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

So, apologies to any regular readers; I guess you can say that I’ve had a bit of a long holiday on the writing front.  But I’m back and just in time for Autumn – my favourite season when it doesn’t rain!

Bio-Extracts your very own vegan skincare lab at home.

Taking a look at my bedside vanity area, it becomes quite evident that I’m not your typical one-potion type of girl. Long gone are the days when I would consider just using one face cream. Our skin goes through different stages throughout the year and not just in line with the seasons. Factors such as weather, pollution, hormones and lifestyle all play a part.  There are days when I class

Things to keep you occupied this May!

This is not the best of post, just more of things that I have been enjoying over the past month that are going to see me well into May, being that it is nowhere near summer weather here in the UK ( I mean we had hail stones on May Day!). So with sandals, sunshine, picnics and BBQs in the near distant future, here are my recommendations for the imminent

Four eyeshadow pots by Ciaté that have made me put that eyeshadow palette away!

It’s quite rare these days that I step away from an eyeshadow palette. It’s not the colour or the pigment that wins me over but the pure convenience of having a selection of colours at your fingertips that you can mix and experiment with. However, when I look at a palette, it is only two or three colours that hit the pan and more than often, the majority of the

Well let
