Bumble and Bumble Bb Thickening Collection – New Additions

The Bumble and Bumble Bb Thickening Collection has been around for a while – I remember the huge hype around the cult Dryspun Texture Spray when it first launched – but recently the range has had a bit of an uplift (boom, boom) with some…

Fragrance Friday: Floral Street Wonderland Peony

In a world of fragrance that’s trying so hard to be incredible different and unique, it’s sometimes a real pleasure to find something unashamedly and traditionally pretty – introducing the gorgeously floral and fruity Wonderland Peony from Floral Street, which is like a big burst…

QVC UK TSV: Shay & Blue 4 Piece Fragrance Collection

Almost exactly a year ago, Shay & Blue launched their first ever QVC UK TSV, which went down so well that they’re doing it again, with a very similarly themed 4-piece collection, although this time you can pick your scent.  The Shay & Blue 4…

Birchbox October 2018

The Birchbox October 2018 box is all about winding down, relaxing and getting ready for Autumn, which is very much where I’m at – the Indian Summer we’re alleged due can bugger off – bring on the sweater weather and Halloween and brilliant Winter Telly.…

Fragrance Friday: Goya Black Rose

If you’re a rose fragrance fan and you like your scents to be classic, uncomplicated and just the right side of feminine, Goya Black Rose is a perfume I’d highly recommend investigating.  I always love it when a fragrance matches up well with the bottle…

Glossybox October 2018 (Halloween Special – Trick Edition)

I love pretty much everything about the Glossybox October 2018, which is a Halloween special and comes in two varieties, Trick or Treat.  I have the Trick edition which is very make-up heavy – I always prefer the make-up heavy boxes so I’m very happy!…

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…

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…
