Makeup beginner? Read this first!

Do you ever see celebrities on TV or people featuring in videos online with utterly flawless makeup and wish you had some sort of clue as to how to recreate it? When I was younger, a full face of makeup was basically a thick foundation – usually a shade too dark for my skin – some shiny lip gloss that came free with a magazine and a several coats of my favourite mascara – you can find Vogue cover mascara here – not forgetting some heavy eyeliner and some body glitter. Don’t judge. View Post

Review: Skintifique Products

Review: Skintifique Products

As someone who has suffered from cystic acne from the age of 13, I’ve tried out loads of skin products over the years. I’ve always hoped to find that holy grail product and had some luck with various acids. However, when it comes to cleansers, toners and moisturisers, I’ve finally come to realise that nothing is probably going to help that much.

If you have a baby, chances are you may have heard of Childs Farm. Whilst I’ve tried out other great bathtime products, I’ve been itching to try out these products since Autumn was a newborn. I was delighted when I was approached with a lovely gift hamper to test out.

If you’ve been following my blog and social media accounts, you’ll remember that I went to the press launch of This Morning Live at the ITV Studios in London last month. With home, garden and lifestyle stands, we were excited to go to the show in Birmingham. There were just two things standing in our way…a teething baby and a 150 mile journey in torrential rain!

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
