Claire Louise Crimson Set (Holiday Heroes)

I was really fortunate to be sent some fantastic bits and bobs to take away on my recent holiday, which included a great mix of decadent beauty alongside handy and practical items, with a few products that straddled both, such as this duo from Claire…

New Launches from tarte at QVC UK

Every few months we got a little lot of newness from tarte at QVC UK, and it’s always something to look forward to as the edited collection is usually a total joy, with the current new arrivals proving to be no exception.  There are six…

OPI Peru Collection

The OPI Peru Collection is absolutely gorgeous.  It’s the most perfect collection of fun and colourful shades that are so perfect for transitioning nails into more Autumnal colours.  As is usually the case with any OPI collection, there is something for everyone; there are 12…

What I Took On Holiday – Sun Care (Holiday Heroes)

I took quite a bit of sun care away with me, as you can see, with the entirely reasonable justification that it was to cover all eventualities for all three of us.  Therefore I took lots of SPF for mum, Teddy and I, as well…

What I Took On Holiday – Hair and Body (Holiday Heroes)

I’ve shared the (rather excessive) makeup I took away with me here, as well as the considerably more refined skincare here, now it’s the hair and body products, which again were a lot more carefully selected than the abomination of makeup I selected. I’ll also…

Beauty Pie Month #2 (One Month On)

Okay so it’s definitely more than a month since I purchased by second box of goodies from Beauty Pie, and shared the contents with you here, but to be honest, I’ve kind of lost a bit of enthusiasm for the products.  I think it’s mainly…

What I Took on Holiday – Makeup (Holiday Heroes)

You may have read my recent post on the skincare I took with me and thought how streamlined and carefully edited it was.  The exact opposite is the case here, I don’t know why I felt the need to take so much makeup on holiday…

What I Took On Holiday – Skincare (Holiday Heroes)

I went on holiday with the very best intentions, promising to maintain a solid skincare routine, do lots of treatments and masks, wear a high, daily SPF and return with skin glowing from TLC rather than excessive sun.  Other than wearing the daily SPF (Neostrata…

Travel-Friendly Makeup Brush Sets (Holiday Heroes)

I desperately tried to get all the Holiday Heroes content up and running before I left for my actual holiday, as I knew how rubbish it would be to talk about products great for a holiday after mine had finished, but hey ho, here we…

Big Beauty Bundle Competition

I think we can safely say that Summer is pretty much over (boo) although there’s still a bit of a sun left, Autumn feels very now.  To cheer us up, I’ve put together a fantastic bundle of beauty goodies for one very lucky winner.  Let’s…

Birchbox UK September 2018

The Birchbox UK September 2018 is attractively presented in a mosaic-style box and contains five samples.  There’s a good mix, although they’re all pretty small, but the lead product is a Benefit Box O’Powder which definitely adds some strength to the contents. Alongside the Benefit blush,…

Glossybox UK September 2018

I’m rather late with my beauty box posts this month as I was on holiday for the first couple of weeks, but better late than never at all, especially since the Glossybox UK September 2018 is a great little box that’s well worth a post.…

Sun Care Finishing Touches

I’ve written quite a bit about sun care and SPF as part of my Holiday Heroes series, with this post looking at some of the finishing touches that can enhance the other products that fall under the sun care umbrella.  When I return from holiday,…
