A Few Things Keeping Me Distracted During the Isolation

Not my usual beauty post today, as I've spent the whole week trying to build up to writing something beauty-related, but I just can't; even though I think beauty posts are perfect for this sort of situation as they're an escape for both the writer and the reader, this week I'm quite knackered by it all and lacking in enthusiasm, so I thought I'd share with you a few things that have been keeping me going through the isolation instead, whilst dropp[...]

QVC UK TSV: IT Cosmetics 3 Piece Superstar Glow Collection

The worst thing about receiving an IT Cosmetics delivery is that I have to go on the QVC UK site to check price/stock/etc and I end up putting together a loooong list of all the IT Cosmetics bits I want.  The best thing about receiving an IT Cosmetics delivery, apart from the fact that I get to share it with you guys, is that I get to have a play with new bits from this amazing brand, and I am so excited to make a start on the three products in the Q[...]

QVC UK TSV: Elemis 5 Piece Pro-Collagen Hydrate & Nurture Collection

In these horrendously scary times, I feel that things like a little bit of at-home pampering can make all the difference - I don't think I've ever taken as many baths as I have since I started my self-isolation! With that in mind, the arrival of the Elemis 5 Piece Pro-Collagen Hydrate & Nurture Collection QVC UK TSV couldn't be better timed.  The set is a good mix of skincare and make-up, with some superstars in the making mixed in with old f[...]

AD: HERPOtherm Cold Sore Treatment Review

Ad/Sponsored Content - I have been paid to feature this product.  Did you know that 90% of people in Europe carry the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 - the main cause of cold sores - but only 30% of carriers produce blisters? That's a huge percentage of people who would benefit from a reliable cold sore treatment that's safe and easy to use, so I'm excited to show you the HERPOtherm Cold Sore Treatment, a purse-friendly device that's free from chemicals[...]

Christmas 2019

I've been an absolute cliche for the last few weeks, completely dumbfounded by the arrival of Christmas - it's going to be 2020 soon, how is that even possible? This year has absolutely flown by! I normally make quite a big fuss of Christmas on the blog, with all sorts of gift guides and Christmassy bits and bobs, but this year I've aggregated the whole lot into one big post.  I realise 23rd December is a somewhat late arrival when it comes to sharin[...]

AD - FOREO have sponsored this post.  I've already made a good start on my Black Friday binge, although I'm still holding out hope that someone, somewhere, will reduce the Dyson hairdryer enough for me to justify treating myself! There are some great deals this year, so here's a little look at some of my favourites: FOREO (link) have some fantastic discounts available for their Black Friday sale, with a huge range of products being discounted[...]

Glossybox Fri-Yay Limited Edition Box

I really love the packaging for the Glossybox Fri-Yay Limited Edition Box - I think it blends the typical colours of both Black Friday and Glossybox together really well, plus it's very pretty too!

Here's a look at what you get: MUA Bronzed Perfection Shimmer in Sahara Sunlight (full-size) Soaper Duper Super Light Sh[...]

A Quick Look at Two New Obagi Skincare Launches

A few weeks ago I popped into London for an afternoon of all things Obagi, to be introduced to the two newest members of the Obagi skincare family.  Regular readers will be very familiar with my intense love for Obagi and their incredible, (life) skin-changing products, so whenever they launch anything new I'm always ultra keen to get my hands on it.  There are two new very exciting launches coming our way, both of which I'll be reviewing in muc[...]
