It’s an interesting idea with some great […]

12 Gifts of Christmas: GlamGlow Gift Sexy

25 November 2014

The GlamGlow Supermud mask is one of my all-time favourite masks – honestly, every time I use it I’m reminded by just how brilliant it is, leaving skin visibly clearer and calmer after just a single use – so I may have squealed when I saw the GlamGlow Gift Sexy set, which is the Christmas […]

Yardley Jade EDT

Yardley Jade EDT

19 November 2014

Yardley are an interesting brand as they have quite a heritage behind them which unfortunately comes attached with a bit of a stuffy reputation, not helped by the brand’s association with single, floral fragrances (such as lavender) which has resulted in the brand being known as an old-fashioned, grandparent-friendly range.  However, over the past few […]
