If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! A while ago I thought it would be a good idea to put together a post based on some more affordable skincare lines that I really rate.  Then I forgot all about it and I was reminded when I […]

Elizabeth Arden AW14 – Untold Colour Collection

Elizabeth Arden AW14 – Untold Colour Collection

01 September 2014

I rather like the concept of the AW14 releases from Elizabeth Arden, as it appears to be built around the Untold fragrance which I think is quite a lovely way to do things; the idea of a fragrance that matches a make-up collection appeals to me for some reason…no idea why!

Cosmic Beauty UK Mask Shop

29 August 2014

Oh how I love a mask! There’s nothing quite like the pampering experience of a bit of facial indulgence with a deep cleanse followed by a mask to try and tackle whatever issues my skin is showing, which is why I’ve written so much about masks lately, as I feel they’re a great way to […]

Illamasqua Once – AW14 Collection

Illamasqua Once – AW14 Collection

27 August 2014

I follow the Illamasqua story with great interest; a brand who started as a niche, indie and fairly “out there” make-up range that’s now far more high-street than I’m sure anyone ever anticipated, so they fight a constant battle between keeping their original indie fans happy whilst also giving their ever-growing, more commercial fans what […]

You may have caught my mini ramble on Instagram last night regarding candles which was stimulated by the arrival of this glorious Aromatherapy Associates Indulgence Candle.  I realised yesterday that it had been well over a year since I lit a candle in my home, even though I absolutely love burning candles.  The reason being that […]

Undercover Colors: Beauty and the Battle Against Date Rape

Undercover Colors: Beauty and the Battle Against Date Rape

26 August 2014

A new type of nail polish has been created by a group of four students at North Carolina State University that detects date-rape chemicals in drinks; the person who’s wearing it just stirs the drink with their finger, then if the chemicals are present, the polish will change colour.  Isn’t that fantastic?  When I was […]

Triple Threat Facial: Timesaver’s Edit

My obsession with the Triple Threat facial continues and even though I’ve been a bit rubbish at putting aside pampering time lately, I’m back in the game with this Triple Threat Facial for those who are short of time.  I realise that the whole TTF thing takes quite a bit of time commitment that not […]
