Quick Pick Tuesday: Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear

Quick Pick Tuesday: Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear

22 July 2014

There are a few fruit flavours that I am *such* a sucker for; mostly peach, raspberry, cherry and pear and these are all flavours I seek out in beauty products.  Having said that, there’s nothing worse than a synthetic attempt at a fruit flavour and I’ve tried some truly hideous attempts at flavouring in my […]

Charles Worthington Salon at Home Amplifying Volume Treatment

Charles Worthington Salon at Home Amplifying Volume Treatment

18 July 2014

I’m always a bit dubious over products that claim to add volume whilst you wash your hair, and it’s only recently after trying a few new additions to my collection that I’ve started to change my approach.  I’ve always felt that volume is something you add with products post-wash, but the Charles Worthington Salon at Home […]

Evening Skincare Routine (July 2014)

Evening Skincare Routine (July 2014)

17 July 2014

Okay so you might be looking at the products I’m currently using for my evening skincare routine and assessing them to be a tad excessive, but in my defence, they don’t all get used every night! When I took these pictures at the weekend I was extremely happy with my evening routine as I’m still […]

An Introduction to Only Fingers + Toes

17 July 2014

If you love nails (and going by the traffic I get for any nail-related posts, I think you do…) then you might want to look away now, as I’m about to cost you a small fortune.  I have a very strange relationship with nail products, as I think I find all things nail related more […]

Teddy: TEN Baby Skincare

Teddy: TEN Baby Skincare

16 July 2014

I have to confess, I find baby products rather exciting; probably due to the fact that they’re still relatively novel to me, plus I really enjoy the idea of pampering Teddy…not that I think he notices, but beautiful baby products are designed to appeal to mum rather than the baby aren’t they? Therefore it’s safe […]

Morning Skincare Routine (July 2014)

Morning Skincare Routine (July 2014)

15 July 2014

I’ve realised that where it goes ridiculously wrong with me and skincare is that I get bored with what I’m using, even if it’s working really well, I can get distracted by something new and pretty to use; not good! I’m using all sorts of lovely skincare at the moment, so I thought I’d do […]

Ideal World Beauty

Ideal World Beauty

14 July 2014

Years ago I used to be obsessed with shopping channels and how I could better my life with the right vegetable grater or juicer, yet there wasn’t much beauty around even though I’ve always been a beauty junkie.  You’d get a bit here and there on various channels, but it was definitely rare and there […]
