Sunday Review: Malée Natural Science

Sunday Review: Malée Natural Science

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you’ll know that I only review products of brands that I’m genuinely interested in. Part of the beauty of what I do is that I get to work with amazing people and as well as working with brands I already know and love, I get introduced to new brands I can be passionate about too! Malée was not a brand that I’d heard of prior to the opportunity arising to review some of their products. However, they are definitely worth getting to know!

As I get older, I find myself increasingly worried about what products I’m using. Especially since becoming a mum, I find that I worry about what they contain. After all, I can’t stop Autumn from pressing her little face against mine or touching my skin. I also find myself being more concerned about whether products are cruelty free or not and their impact on the environment. View Post

Trying coloured contact lenses

Trying coloured contact lenses

I’ve always liked the look of coloured contact lenses. It’s important to get them from a reputable source though, as in the past I’ve heard of people obtaining serious eye problems from using cheaply made ones. Of course, you should know how to put them in and take them out without hurting yourself too. If in doubt, go to see your optician.

The opportunity recently arose to try a couple of colours from Lentiamo. I am short sighted, so I got mine with a prescription in them.  View Post

Review: LA Tanning Company Mousse

Review: LA Tanning Company Mousse

In the summer, I tend to become a lot more self conscious of my pale skin. I’ve actually been known to have paler skin than my ginger best friend. Yes, really. That’s how pale I am!

When I was a teenager, I went through the standard rite of passage of using a tinted lotion to build up a tan. However, I’d somehow end up streaky and with strange orange lines around my forehead. The thought of having a fake tan sounded good to me, but I never dared do it myself in case I did it wrong again. Until now, that is! View Post

The Beauty Blogger Tag

The Beauty Blogger Tag

I’ve seen a few variations of this tag floating around, but the general jist seems to be that you answer 25 beauty related questions. You then think of 25 questions and tag other beauty bloggers to answer them! While I’m not primarily a beauty blogger, I do occasionally blog about beauty products (including these reviews on Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick and Benefit’s Roller Lash). I love blogging about beauty, I just don’t feel I’m good enough with beauty products to blog about them all the time! View Post

Sunday Review: Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

Sunday Review: Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

When I visited Bluewater a couple of weeks ago, I went to buy some of my usual makeup products that I was running low on. While I was browsing, a sheet mask caught my eye. It’s a hydrating mask, which I thought could possibly help my dry skin. My skin has also been very dull of late; one of the things that has changed since I’ve become a mum  is that skincare has gone out of the window!

Yesterday evening, after two days of intense spring cleaning, I thought I deserved a treat. I spotted the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask in my drawer and thought “Why not?” Besides, my skin has been feeling even more lacklustre since we went to London last week. I always feel like all the pollutants have an effect on it! View Post
