  • Today I posted about the new @avon_uk Lip Powders, which are very impressive! I’m wearing one here and you can find out all about them via a direct link in my bio 💄 PR Samples #selfie #avon
  • How stunning is this highlighter palette from @elfcosmeticsuk? Spotted at the @pureprlondon press show last week - definitely need this ✨#elfuk #purepositivity
  • Got my @sweedlashes on and my hair all @t3haircareuk curled, so now I’m ready for my...facial. Yeah, I didn’t think that one through, but I looked very glamorous for a few pre-facial hours, at least! #pushconnect #selfie
  • A mini midweek facial 👊🏻Just used up another pot of @omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, followed this with the @ecooking Peele Mask - first time using it since I’ve gone up a retinol level...its tingly! 🥴next up is the Uber-soothing @imageskincareuk Balancing Gel Masque. I’ll then slather my face with the @beutiskincare elixir and tomorrow my skin will glow 🌝🌟✨#facial #skincare
  • Did you see my review of the @beautypie Lip Oil trio? Check out my thoughts on the blog now - direct link in bio 👄 #beautypie #postyourpie
  • Look at how proud my Little Man is! Here he is earning his purple tag as part of his Martial Arts training, and I’m going to give him a proper shout out because he is amazing.

It’s phenomenal for any child to achieve these tags as they involve so much discipline and commitment, but I’m especially proud of Teddy because he suffers from a disability called SMA which, among other things, makes balance and walking particularly difficult for him; when he was born it was predicted that he’d be in a wheelchair by now, but instead he’s achieving amazing things such as getting his fifth tag this week. I’m so proud and I love him so much ❤️❤️❤️thanks to @hertfordshiremartialarts for giving him the perfect balance of support and encouragement and @emmahoptroff for the guidance and the picture too! #teddytc #martialarts #proudmummy #hertfordshiremartialarts
  • I’m not normally a fan of the colour red, but I think red flowers are so pretty 🌹
  • Gone from spending my life battling to hide my skim, then finally having skin that wasn’t great but much easier to hide, to now, where I actually love my skin and make it a feature to enhance - crazy! I’m a total pedant with my skincare and follow a strict routine of mostly @obagiuk plus an LED mask every night and it really has worked so well for me! Tap for #makeup brands - PR Samples 💕#selfie
  • Receiving a lovely delivery of fancy suncare from @soleil_toujours is the perfect excuse to book another holiday, right? Especially with the current British weather - I won’t get a chance to use it all at this rate! Come back, sun 🌞 😫#suncare #soleiltoujours

Lancome Idole Review

Fragrance Friday: Lancome Idole

Disclaimer: PR Sample  - I have not been paid for this feature.  I have spent the last 24 hours obsessing over the new fragrance, Lancome Idole, because it is just one of those perfumes that I know I'm going to use right up until the very last drop! I used to post about fragrances regularly as part of my Fragrance Friday series, but other than a qu[...]
