Bomb Cosmetic’s You Can’t Catch Me

Bath blaster by Bomb Cosmetics

Christmas might have come and gone but some of the delights, including a stack of bath blasters from Bomb Cosmetics, are still lingering around the flat. Several of the blasters are really strongly winter scented but a few of the others can be used going into the spring so there has been some tactical consideration […]

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 […]

The Day I Went To A/W #CoopWineTasting

A small bottle of wine with colourful bites

I was so excited to receive an invite to the Autumn Winter Co-op wine tasting event in London for last month. After going to the one in May for the Spring Summer collection I had a rough idea of what to expect but was on the look out for that perfect red wine to enjoy […]

The Day I Went To Brighton

About a month ago we went to Brighton to see a couple of friends. It is also a bit difficult to catch up with people when everybody has varying schedules, availability and are dotted in multiple locations so when there is a chance it is always a fabulous time. The weather was glorious on the […]

Lush Cosmetics Never Mind The Ballistics Bath Bomb

These are fairly inconsistent bath bombs in terms of appearance as some are evenly yellow and pink while others, like this one, is 75% yellow on the outside layer. But there is something about the uniqueness and messyness of the look of these bathbombs that somewhat adds to its charm. Part of the colour combination […]

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 […]

Month Two Update On My August 2016 Aims

What a month! Not only have I settled further into work and started to get into new routines and more positive habits of making the most of my time off and days in general but, despite the nights closing in and the weather being a downer, I am still feeling pretty upbeat about life at […]

Pigs Liver And Bacon With Mash, Veg And Gravy

A little while ago, when doing an ASDA delivery order, I decided to get some liver and opted for pig’s liver. Liver is obviously a very cheap element to a dish but it is something that I struggle to prepare and cook because the smell really is very strong. And now it is autumn and […]

My Birthday + Aims For The Year Ahead

It was my birthday yesterday and as a result my Olympics coverage has gone rather array in the last couple of days but as events have neared an end the sports I feel I can contribute anything to have also come to an end. And to add a bit of brightness to this blog the […]
