Sanctuary Spa Christmas Box of Delights Review

After I had their advent calendar last Christmas, and absolutely loved it, I had been on the lookout for the 2017 offering from Sanctuary. I eagerly scoured their website, the Boots website and all the beauty blogger advent calendar roundups I could find from October to no avail. Sanctuary, it appeared, had decided not to go ahead with an advent calendar of their own this year, and I for one...

Creating my Perfect Christmas Party Makeup Look with MeMeMe Cosmetics

Last week I was invited down to Beales department store, in Bournemouth, where MeMeMe Cosmetics had recently opened up a stand, for their blogger event. I will be honest, before the event I hadn’t really heard of the brand before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I headed over before my review visit to The Stable. The event was very casual, with those invited able to attend anytime...

Style – Finding the Perfect Christmas Party Outfit – A Gift from Quiz Clothing

Today marks the end of November, and I for one am very excited about the month ahead! December is generally filled with Christmas parties, festive drinks and the chance to let your hair down and get dressed up to celebrate arguably the most wonderful time of the year! I have really enjoyed putting together my style posts recently, so when I was approached by Quiz Clothing, asking if I would...

Finding my Inner Beauty

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you that I’m a very ‘girly’ girl. I love makeup and skincare. I enjoy dressing up and making myself look nice, but I’ve been feeling insecure lately, I’ve been comparing myself to others and I have felt rubbish about myself and my appearance because of this. I love the beauty industry, and this post isn’t about turning my back on it, but...

Beauty – My Autumnal Bridal Makeup Look with Blushing Brides of Bournemouth

I posted yesterday about our UK wedding blessing and reception and how amazing our suppliers were. Today I wanted to focus this post on one in particular, my lovely friend Sally who runs Blushing Brides in Bournemouth. Sally did both my hair and makeup for the reception, and I wanted to share with you today the products she used to create my makeup look. Estee lauder smoothing Primer Estee Lauder...

Beauty – October Monthly Favourites 

As the days get colder and the heating gets turned on (yes, Ed finally caved and let me have it on), it’s important to take care of your skin and to generally pamper yourself a little more. These are the beauty products I’ve been using and loving this month.  Garnier – Moisture Bomb  This is something I’ve used in the past and returned to recently. It’s really affordable at £5.29...

Beauty – My Beauty Christmas Wish List 

The beauty section of my blog is one of my favourites, I’m a total girly girl and I love makeup, skincare and everything in between, but as a mum of three, I just simply don’t have the money to buy myself most of the things I see and want.  For this reason, I tend to ask for beauty bits for Christmas. Boots is my favourite shop, and I’ve been adding...

Beauty – My Everyday 5 Minute Makeup 

I have never been confident enough to be one of those women who can go out and about without a scrap of makeup on. I know that really shows how insecure I am, but I’ve come to terms with it.  As I’m a mum of three, time is limited in the morning so I have a makeup bag filled with everyday essentials that can get me ready to face the...

Autumn Beauty Haul including Estée Lauder’s Free Gift Set & Christmas 3 for 2 range! 

Last Friday I threw caution to the wind and ended up going on a little shopping spree with my mum. As well as picking up some autumn clothes, which I will be posting about soon, I also stocked up on some beauty bits.  I recently wrote about my Estée Lauder doublewear foundation, and how I finally feel like I’ve found the holy grail of foundations. Unfortunately that holy grail is...

My September Beauty Favourites 

I don’t usually write ‘favourites’ posts as I tend to just focus on more in-depth reviews, but with everything that’s gone on this month, getting married and then going straight into a brand new routine with Ed’s new job and the kids starting at school, it’s been fairly hectic and I’ve not found the time to sit down and write reviews of anything other than the Estée Lauder foundation.  I...
