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! Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into

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,

Mrs J’s Top 5 Autumn Winter Nail Polish shades

If you love red lipstick and red nails, then this is the perfect time of year to indulge away. Autumn/ Winter always brings out the darker, deeper shades of nail polish. With so many nail trends, colours and brands on the market, it’s hard to not get slightly a bit confused. Or, if you’re like me who forget about those gorgeous shades collected on the way but now deserve to

Five stocking fillers she’ll want to receive this Christmas!

One of my earliest memories of Christmas is not from the day itself but from my junior school days when life was a little bit less materialistic. We spent hours making crepe paper decorations for the Christmas tree and a stocking out of felt to hang over the fire place or at the end of the bed. Traditionally, this sock shaped bag was told to be filled by Father Christmas

The Autumnal Make Up Switch Up

There is no element of surprise when it comes to my makeup routine. I tend to play pretty safe when it comes to colours, sticking to (or trying to achieve that healthy glow) something that is as near to my natural colourings at that time. So I would say, for me, I’m pretty boring. Evenings out or on those odd days when I tend to be a bit daring, it’s

Get Ready, your customisable Makeup Obsession has arrived!

I often get asked what makeup I use and as I do wear a lot of makeup and write about makeup and skincare, you would think that I am well over the embarrassment of reeling off a long list of products. Truth is, with so much choice, it’s really hard to just stick to one brand. My makeup purchases have started to get out of control and I blame the

#LFPAMPER The October Edition

Hello Autumn! I shouldn’t really feel shocked by the turn in the weather and the arrival of the colder climate…I mean it happens every year! This year though, I have been desperately trying to cling onto the summer months that little bit longer as I’m an October baby, and the change in seasons means that I’m that one year older and not an age that I’m particularly comfortable with. Birthdays
