Products I Want To Use Up In 2018 #6

Beauty empties #6

August proved to be a bit of an odd month for me. The heatwave, getting hospitalised for 13 days and having a quiet time ahead of starting my new job in September. It didn’t come as much of a surprise therefore to see a stack of basic products when I opened the bag containing my […]

Products I Want To Use Up In 2018 #5

Project pan 5 part two

I had hoped to do one of these posts before or just after my surgery and had the photos all ready to go but in the end it just never ended up happening. Some time later and with another bundle of empty products I realised it was time to combine both sets of empties into […]

Mini Benefit Cosmetics Haul

Beauty store booth haul

Recently I spotted that my trusty Bourjois Healthy Mix was actually a bit too orange on my skin and it really put me off applying foundation or any makeup at all. Was it always like that? Have I spent over a year walking around looking like I should be sitting on the shelf with the […]

What I Got For Christmas 2017

Pink handled brushes, blue and purple bristles

Forever late to the party I have finally decided to put together a post on everything that I got for Christmas. These posts are usually really useful to me, even the ones that stay hidden in my drafts and never published, because it helps me to track back to see what I got in a […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 21-25

Top drawer of Look Fantastic advent calendar

I hope you have had a lovely couple of Christmas days, the family arguments were kept to the minimum and that you have found some trousers that will let you tuck into a mound of leftovers today. Waking up this morning without having a day to open in my advent calendar was a bit of […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 16-20

Blue lock and key into magical garden

Today is the 21st of December which is incredibly surprising in itself because wow 2017 has been wild and it is nearly over but more importantly it is the shortest day of the year which means longer days are on the way back in and before we know it Spring and blossom on trees will […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 11-15

Christmas tree design on Look Fantastic

It is really blowing my mind just how quickly Christmas is approaching. Perhaps it is based on how busy I have been and how many different illnesses I have had to deal with since the start of December rather than actually being in the Christmas spirit or doing almost anything festive. If you missed the […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 6-10

Flamingo in front of Christmas tree design

In the first instalment of this mini series, for days 1-5, I discussed that a lot of the boxes were the navy packaging rather than the snazzy pattern but I take that all back because photographing the colourful ones is far more challenging than I anticipated… But after the variety of products that came in […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 1-5

Christmas tree, flamingo, beauty, feminine style design for advent calendar

Avoiding spoilers for beauty advent calendars is particularly tricky when you are so into watching Youtube videos and reading other people’s blogs but somehow I managed to avoid finding out the contents of anything in the box until it came to actually opening the first few days. The Look Fantastic box is a bit of […]

Rimmel’s #Insta Collection

Conceal, correct, contour, highlight and stay matte with this new Rimmel London #Insta collection

I was so excited when the #Insta collection by Rimmel London landed on my doorstep a while ago as it contained a variety of products where the style of those products often pop up on my Instagram feed but I had not got round to trying anything similar. Whilst looking forward to getting stuck in […]
