Beauty – The Makeup & Skincare I Packed for Our Cruise

In case you somehow missed it, I am currently away on my last day of my very first cruise. Being a cruise newbie, I had no idea what to pack in general, and headed onto the internet to get some tips on what to pack for a cruise as a family. When it came to packing my makeup and skincare though, I decided I wanted just my staple products with...

Beauty – Origins Ginzing™ Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream

If you checked out my week in the life vlog, or follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me mention that I bought myself some beauty treats with a gift card in Marks and Spencer’s recently. They were items that I loved the look of, but simply wouldn’t have been able to justify had I not of had the gift card to spend. One of my favourites from the...

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 – 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 – 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...
