Beauty – Current Beauty Favourites

It feels like ages since I last shared with you my beauty favourites, so I thought I would do a little round up of the skincare and makeup items which I’ve loved lately. Urban Decay Naked Palette I already have the Urban Decay Naked 2 and 3 palettes, and I love them! The pigmentation of the eye shadows is incredible compared to others I have used, and I love how...

Beauty – My Makeover at DFMA Makeup Bar

On Saturday I was invited along to the newly opened DFMA Makeup Bar in Westbourne for a professional makeover. DFMA are predominantly a makeup academy with courses across the country, but they have opened their doors in Westbourne to provide professional makeup for all. I had originally been planning on going out after having my makeup done, but as we had gone out the night before, I just had a...

Beauty – Boots No7 Aqua Perfect Cushion Foundation

I make no secret of the fact that Boots is by far my favourite place to shop for all my beauty essentials. I pick up my makeup and skincare there, and have previously written about my love of their advantage card, by far the best of the loyalty card schemes I’m signed up for. When I was sent over their No7 Aqua Perfect cushion foundation, I was really interested to...

Beauty – A Newly Launched Day Spa – Beauty H Spa at Hoburne Bashley

Last Friday, I was invited along to the launch of a new day spa in the Hoburne Bashley holiday park through the Bournemouth Blogger network. I don’t really know the area well, and didn’t really know what to expect but when I arrived at the venue, I was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous modern decor and the tranquil haven of the spa itself, situated on the first floor of the...

Beauty – Makeup & Skincare for a Long Haul Flight

I promise I will stop banging on about Mexico and our honeymoon soon, but today I wanted to share with you the makeup and skincare I took along in my hand luggage to help make me look and feel a bit more human after the long haul flight. Now, I want to start by saying that I fully intended to take photos for this post before we went, thus having...

Beauty – The Perfect Perfume for a Beach Holiday – Escada Sorbetto Rosso

I don’t know about you, but when I go away on a special holiday, I like to take along a new perfume, something that will become a signature scent for the trip. Something which will have the power to take me back afterwards, with just a spritz. This has happened with Ghost Sweetheart Forever, which I took along to Santorini, and now makes me remember the brilliant blue skies and...

Beauty – Pre-Holiday Beauty Checklist

So, we go on honeymoon a week today (in case you‘ve somehow missed me talking about it in almost every post over the last few weeks). It’s safe to say I’m pretty excited (but nervous too, as I’m not a good flyer). To help me relax, and to be confident out in Mexico, I’ve been having a bit of a pre-honeymoon pamper and I’ve put together a checklist for anybody...

Beauty – My New Age-Delaying Skincare Saviours from sk:n

With my 29th birthday fast approaching, and the rather scary realisation that I’m almost in my thirties now, I’ve been making an effort with my skincare more. Gone are the days I would whip off my makeup with a face wipe and call it a day, now my bedtime and morning skincare routine is a little more complex. Over the past few weeks I’ve been using two of the bestsellers...

Beauty – Improving my Sleep with the Feather & Down Range

I make no secret of the fact that I don’t get enough sleep. As a busy mum of three, I am almost always on the go, and even when I stop and lie down at night, my mind struggles to switch off. I have always been a bit of a worrier, and I was diagnosed with anxiety last year. I find it very hard to relax, and falling asleep has...

Beauty – Relaxing & Unwinding with the Detox & Calm Beauty Box from allbeauty

I am going to let you in on a secret. I’m a blogger, who writes about beauty, and I have never tried a beauty box before. With so many to choose from these days, I think I have become a bit overwhelmed about which one to go for. When allbeauty emailed me offering to send over their new limited edition box, of course I said yes. It was about time...
