The Watchmaker Of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

Front cover of book

It is such a good feeling when a book is able to pull you into the story and you become reluctant to put it down until it is completed. Whilst there are many good books that come and go allowing for the reader to be interested and attracted to it there are few that make […]

L’oreal Color Riche Nail Polish

Three nail varnishs, pink, purple and blue by L'Oreal

Doing my nails was one of the first ‘beauty’ things that I ever really got into and at 15 whilst I was never interested in anything more than some wild blue eyeshadow and mascara I was already building up a collection of outlandish nail varnish. Not much has changed except that I own foundation, have […]

Rimmel Super Gel Beach Ready Collection

Five bright nail varnish colours on top of a press realease

From mustard to forest green to hot pink my nail varnish section is not only overflowing but looks like a rainbow ready to swamp the room. Doing my nails is something that I find the time and focus to do more than almost any other part of the beauty world. That certainly does not mean […]

Seeing What Is On Offer In Cardiff

With not much time and my partner having his own thing to do the things we got up to were pretty limited but as well as going down to¬†Cardiff Bay. But I thought I would share a few things with you to help provide you with a bit more information should a trip to Cardiff […]

Rimmel’s The Only 1 Matte Lipsticks

Thursday was my day off. I had a missed parcel on the Tuesday so arranged for it to turn up when I would actually be around. Sure enough that package, shipped over from the USA, arrived but flung into my hand by the postman was a rattling red padded package. Nothing else was due to […]

Product Empties: February 2016

Another month means more products have come and gone in my life. As I am trying to save money and not buy anything unless I truly really need it a lot more things are heading out rather than in. Whilst I am not specifically doing project pans and use it ups I am trying to […]

Loreal Color Riche 30 Years Collection

Using this collection of lipsticks has been so enjoyable over the last couple of months. I got this when I won a vlogmas competition from Josie at Fashion Mumblr (blog and youtube) and am absolutely in love. The box basically contains some of Loreal’s most popular shades over the years and includes some of the […]

The Magnitone Full Monty

Cleaning our face is something that we have all heralded as key to good looking and healthy skin for years. With the use of make-up, pollution and the constantly varying weather it seems increasingly important to ensure our skin is clean ans has a chance to breath. But what is the best method to really […]

Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar: Day Twenty Five

Merry Christmas! I hope that whatever you are doing today is enjoyable and smiles are raised onto the faces of you and whoever you are spending time with. Meanwhile Makeup Revolution gifted me with an eyeshadow palette of colour and shimmery delights. It includes a few mattes and I think the shimmery shades may well […]

Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar: Day Twenty Four

Another day means another lipstick and today not only does the packaging look red but so does the swatch! With Christmas literally just around the corner now a bright red lip is the perfect thing to pull out of an advent calendar (rather than a bright orange one). It’s interesting how red lips always make […]
