Five Things That I Love

Five Things I Love: May 2017

Yup! Just a tad late with this one as it's almost time to talk about the June Loves, but I thought I'd share with you the products I loved last month, even though it was a while ago... IT Cosmetics are speedily becoming my favourite make-up brand, especially now they're available at Selfridges (check out more info here) and what really started it for me is the Naturally Pretty palette (usually here - link - for £34 but currently sold out,[...]

Five Things I Love: April 2017

It has been a while since I shared a monthly favourites, but I've got some real loves at the mo, so I thought I'd share them.  It's pretty make-up heavy with four out of the five products being make-up, but the one skincare inclusion is a cracker. I'm having a total love affair with IT Cosmetics at the moment as they really do create some amazing products.  I have two of them in my favourites for April, the first of which is the CC Colour[...]

Five Things I Love: November 2016

It feels a bit ridiculous covering my November favourites when we're so close to the end of December (and already happily talking about January...) but I'm gonna', because I'm fed up talking about Christmas stuff so I'd love to indulge myself and rave about some beauty loves. In November I had a terrible time with my skin which because painfully inflamed, broken out all over and just very difficult to treat, so the Skinceuticals Phyto Corre[...]

Five Things I Love: September 2016

It's pretty much the middle of October, so I'm a tad late with this, but better late than never, right? October was a tricky month beauty-wise as my skin was all over the place - it's a little better now, at least, certainly more hydrated, but it's still very broken out and inflamed, which is annoying.  Here are five products I really enjoyed using in September 2016. Starting with the skincare, the Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum (£47[...]

Five Things I Love: August 2016

I'll join in with the bemusement that everyone appears to be feeling and say: I CANNOT BELIEVE IT'S SEPTEMBER! How did that happen? How is it time to start thinking about Christmas again? Crazy! I thought it was time for a Love List as I haven't done one for a little while, so here are five things I thoroughly enjoyed using during August. I've mentioned the Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Gel, which is a lovely light serum that soothes and g[...]


Five Things I Love: November 2015

It's been a few months since I put together a love list, mainly because once I actually get around to selecting and photographing the products, it ends up being so far along into the month that it seems a bit pointless! I tried to be a little more organised this month, so here's a look at my favourites for November: I've split them into two different categories - skincare and make-up.  My make-up loves are mostly things I've picked up that[...]


Five Things I Love: August 2015

Okay this is a tad late considering we're at the half-way point in September, but for the past couple of months I've had collections of products that I've wanted to rave about and didn't manage to put a list together, so I'm indulging myself and going for it now, even though I suppose I should instead be thinking of the September list already! I've broken it down into skincare makeup, starting the makeup bits I'm loving.  Since my skin has[...]


Five Things I Love: April 2015

Two months in a row! As you may well remember from last month's post, I hadn't done a monthly love list for quite some time, but there's a lot to love at the moment so I happily put together my five favourites for the month of April, although I am a little late in publishing it.  So without further ado (etc, etc) here's a look at my rather skincare-heavy love list for April: First up is the infamous Serozinc, which I've been gagging to try[...]


Five Things I Love: March 2015

I mentioned in my last love list that I was only going to do these monthly round-up features when the mood struck me, as I don't like posts to feel forced which was often the case when I felt I had to put together a featuring containing five of my favourite products.  Consequently it was July of last year that I published the last one - I didn't realise it had been so long! March was an easy one for me as there's some very exciting beauty around[...]


Five Things I Love: July 2014

I didn't manage to do a list for June 2014 as July was a bit insane from start to finish, but thankfully August appears to be much quieter (so far...) so I had a chance to put together some of my July favourites to share with you.  It's a make-up heavy list this month with just one skincare item, so here's a look at my favourites from last month: First up, I've been going out for a local coffee quite a bit recently to take Teddy out for so[...]


Five Things I Love: May 2014

I completely missed April in my Love List series even though there was lots I was loving.  This month my list is mostly skincare based since it's been a very skincare-heavy month for me.  Having made a good start on goodies launching this month I can pretty much predict next month will be make-up heavy, so it should balance out.  Here's a run down of things I was loving in May. First up we have the Elemental Herbology Macadamia and Papaya Ra[...]
