I wanted to write this last week, but of course, as I utter my most over-used words these days, I just haven't had the time. Days have seeped into nights and the whole weekend came and went in a blur of work and a 45 minute nap on Sunday which was most enjoyable until I was pounced upon … Continue reading Beauty, Art, Shopping: A Perfect Day
The days are getting darker and colder so I've been in need of a heavier foundation. I was browsing my local Marks & Spencer recently and they do a vast array of cosmetics and beauty products that you won't find in your local Boots or Superdrug. I used some of the Autograph range of make … Continue reading A Fantastic Affordable Foundation
If the name doesn't draw you to it then your lashes after you've used it certainly will. This is a quick review of Urban Decay's mascara called Perversion. I am a bit of a mascara addict and would try a new one every month if I could, but there are a few I do go back … Continue reading Quick Review: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
So today was an unexpected beauty day. I haven't had my eyebrows shaped professionally for years which is appalling I know, but they never looked too bad and I pluck the strays daily. I've always been a bit nervous of threading as it looks quite painful so have only ever had my eyebrows waxed. Anyway, … Continue reading To Thread or not to Thread?
Dammit, it's been well over a week since my last blog post again! As usual everything else has got in the way and I haven't sat down properly to write this. Last week was a pretty emotional one for me (although I'm sure a lot of people think I have been overreacting/ a little mad.) … Continue reading New Season, New Beginnings
It is so hot in the UK today, I can barely concentrate, but I am not complaining as I've been wishing for a proper summer as we have had the odd day like this or a few days in a row then it will be like Winter for the rest of the week and the … Continue reading Last days of Summer and must see TV
It's been a really busy week. If you've read my homepage you will have read that my diet is not great at the best of times, but lately it's been just dreadful. I've been so busy with work I forget the time, my son misses his tired window and then ends up sleeping late. Dinner is … Continue reading Guerlain – I want it all!
I was thrilled when Larissa of The Real Wonderland Blog wanted to collaborate with me and suggested we both write about Kiko Milano products we have both purchased recently. There is a good selection as we have both tried completely different items. So I might as well get to the point and you can read … Continue reading Kiko Milano Cosmetics Collaboration
Now I'm on Instagram I see hundreds of selfies a day. How do people do it? I have tried and tried and just cannot take a good one. I've tried various backgrounds, poses, facial expressions, (I always end up looking petrified) lighting, everything. The only decent ones are with my son and probably because they … Continue reading Selfie Hate and Foundation Stick Love
So our London summer has been pretty rubbish so far to say the least (although there has been some improvement this weekend) and when you can't get the glow naturally, a nice bronzer does the trick. This is something I wear all year round anyway, but tend to wear more obvious bronzers and put more on … Continue reading When there’s no sun, fake it
