bareMinerals Floral Utopia

*PR Samples/Aff. Links* The minute I saw the bareMinerals Floral Utopia collection I knew I needed it in my life: pretty packaging? Yup.  Gorgeous spring shades? Definitely.  Formulas that flatter? 100%.  This is one of those collections that really tap into all the pleasure levels associated with beauty, as not only are the products gorgeous to look at and fun to use, the colours themselves are incredibly pretty and can slot into any kind of make[...]

Boots Haul – March 2019

It's been a while since I had a little binge at Boots, so last month I took myself to my favourite one (Brent Cross - it's just had a makeover and now I can't find anything) to have a little mooch about and see what took my fancy. The Bleach London Smoky duo is a pair I've had my eye on for a while, as it speaks to my need to keep my hair as ashy and grungy as possible - "smoky" is a really good way of describing it as I love the idea of smoky[...]

Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller

Occasionally something will show up online that I know is going to cause a lot of excitement, which is exactly what I thought would be the case with the Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller when it first popped-up on their Instagram feed.  Consequently I kept my eye on the Beauty Pie site to see when it would become available, then last week, Caroline Hirons posted about its imminent arrival and I started refreshing the "accessories" pag[...]

OPI Tokyo Collection

[lookbook id="25709" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] I was hugely excited when I first got wind of the OP Tokyo Collection, as I think Tokyo is such a great inspiration for a nail edit - when thinking of Tokyo I think of brights, acids, neons and lots and lots of colour! The OPI Tokyo is fun, bright very heavy on the pinks, so if you're like me and really a good pink nail, they've got you covered with several takes on baby,[...]

A Detailed Review of Gousto Recipe Boxes

*Affiliate link at the bottom of post* I decided in January to make a really conscious effort to try and eat more plant-based (following a Flexitarian approach, as my son and I still need our Saturday night McDonalds...) as I have done a lot of research which suggests that a plant-based diet is a generally much healthier approach to optimum nutrition.  With that in mind, I decided to look into recipe boxes with the hope that they would introduce m[...]

Amazing Vitamin C Serums for all Skin Types

[lookbook id="25507" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* My skin has come along so much over the past 6 months or so, and it has an actual glow to it, even when make-up free, which I believe is heavily due to my committed use of a good quality Vitamin C Serum each morning. With that in mind, I thought I'd put together a list of the ones I've tried and actually liked (I've tried loads, but these are[...]
