Beauty – The Beauty Gifts I Got for Christmas

These posts seem to be so controversial. I personally don’t see why. I am nosey and love reading all about what people received from loved ones, friends and family. Reading other people’s always gives me an idea of what I might want for my birthday in May, or to treat myself to throughout the year. This year I got a lot of beauty based gifts, which I had mostly asked...

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Eeeek, it’s Christmas!! Well, obviously. I’m not sure if anybody actually reads blogs on Christmas Day, I would guess not… but I just wanted to wish all of my readers a very merry Christmas! I’ve scheduled posts in advance for over the Christmas period so that I can take a much needed break off with my family at this time. I hope you are all enjoying this very special day...

Mummy Mondays – Christmas Traditions for our Children

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...
