Tonic15 K-Beauty Haul

There are so few beauty stores that are really enticing me lately, as it all feels a bit "same old," but K-Beauty is definitely the one thing that still gets my beauty buzzers zinging (I have no idea what that means) because there is so much newness and innovation, that it's hard not to get excited.  I was recently given a voucher to have a little beauty binge at Tonic15, a new K-Beauty online shop that stocks some fantastic K-Beauty brands, so I[...]

Vegan Soy Wax Candles by Handmade by Hanna Rose

Eurgh, it has been a horrible few weeks with Teddy struggling to shake that horrid cold (it's lasted almost a month!) so we've been in and out of the Doctor's surgery and Teddy has had to take quite a bit of time of school.  Not fun! Thankfully (touch wood) he finally seems better and, apart from a bit of a bunged up nose and the occasional cough, he seems brighter, so hopefully we can all start getting back to normal - a month is a long time to[...]

Just My Look Haul

Before I went away, I was invited to have a nose around the Just My Look site and select a a few products to try.  Normally these haul types of features are a bit of a battle as I'm soooo fussy that I often struggle to find products I actually like, but that definitely wasn't the case here! Just My Look is an impressive large beauty shop, stocking some amazing brands spanning the entire beauty spectrum - think skincare, makeup, hair care, bath pr[...]

Spark Beauty at Feel Unique – Championing the Indie Beauty Brand

There was a time, not that long ago, when indie beauty often consisted of body oils, handmade soap, and little else, but thankfully the indie beauty market is now thriving, and packed full of great, interesting brands that deserve our attention.  Cottoning on to this, Feel Unique have launched their Sparks Beauty destination, which sources some of the great overseas indie brands and gives them a platform for exposure.  I attended an event recent[...]

Three Beauty Sales to Avoid if You’re Trying to Stop Spending…

I have researched this post squinting off-angle at the screen, trying not to get suckered in to buying something that I don't really need, but really want; I have the same issue every time I do these posts and I always end up buying something, but I'm really trying to exercise some restraint and save for my holiday.  My word there are some thoroughly decent beauty bargains happening at the mo.  Here are three great sites to visit if you're seeki[...]

Indulge Beauty Store

Indulge Beauty is a new beauty destination determined to stock something a little more interesting than you might expect to find on your typical High Street.  Indulge Beauty have a base at Westfield, but also an online store, so you can get the best of both worlds.  I haven't visited the Westfield store (it's on my list!) but I am very impressed with the brand selection online. A quick mooch on the Indulge Beauty site will present you wit[...]

Boots Haul (Maybelline Heavy with a bit of Max Factor too)

It's been a little while since I did a Boots haul, so a few weeks ago I popped along to Boots to see what was on offer.  I was immediately pulled-in by the Maybelline stand, which had so many new launches that I wanted to try.  There's also the newest Max Factor foundation which I tried on my hand and immediately had to buy! Boots are great for promotions and at this time there was a 3for2 on, so that made it a little more justifiable...[...]

Fabled Birthday Discount Code

I really like Fabled as I think they're one of those beauty shops that are so obviously created by beauty lovers, since they stock a great range of products, both well-known and more indie, plus they regularly offer decent discount codes and their postage options are really good too! I love the fact that you can arrange delivery through Ocado and specify an exact time for delivery (with the minimum charge being a very reasonable £15 for free deli[...]

Cult Beauty Haul

It's been a while since I've had a good ol' fashioned beauty haul, and I've been wanting to pick up a few bits and bobs from Cult Beauty, so that's what I did! I've been wanting to try the cult Anastasia Beverly Hills brow range for a while, so I built my little haul around that. The two Anastasia Beverly Hills I decided to go for are the Brow Powder Duo and the Brow Wiz. I almost went for the Dipbrow Pomade as well as I really love a crea[...]

Bonchoix Beauty Boxes – Another Excuse to Binge on Make-Up

Bonchoix is a very new-to-the-market service that offers a variety of ways to shop for discounted make-up.  They focus on mostly big brands such as Cargo Cosmetics, Urban Decay, Bourjois and OPI, and they offer either single items at a discount, or build-your-own beauty boxes which provide a further discount, so the more you shop, the more you save. I'll mention straight away that the discounts aren't huge, and that paired with the fact th[...]
