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...

Beauty – First Favourites of 2018

Having received quite a few beauty gifts over Christmas, I’ve had lots of new products to try out over the past six weeks or so. I thought it would be good to do a little round up post of the ones I’ve been loving. There’s a real mix of makeup, fragrance, and skincare. Lancome La vie est Belle This has been a firm favourite of mine ever since I bought...

Beauty – StylPro Brush Cleaner Review

I remember seeing a post by Chloe at Lady Writes Blog a little while before Christmas where she featured the StylPro Brush Cleaner and I thought to myself ‘I have to have that’. Luckily, when Ed’s parents asked him what I would like for Christmas he remembered this, and I was so excited to unwrap it! I didn’t get round to using it for a few weeks, but now I...

Beauty – Thoughts on My Very First MAC Lipstick 

Ok, so I know that somebody who blogs about beauty really shouldn’t admit to being so late to the MAC party, but oh well! At the start of December, Ed and I headed to Bath to visit their Christmas market with his work, and whilst we were there exploring, we came across the Jolly’s (House of Fraser) department store. The MAC counter was calling to me and I spent longer...

Beauty – Starting my Day the Clinique Way

I mentioned last week that I was lucky enough to get lots of lovely beauty gifts for Christmas. One of the sets I got was the Clinique Christmas Essentials, something I was very excited to try as I had never used Clinique products before. I must admit, I haven’t really used the makeup items in the set yet, other than the Pout Perfecting Balm. I have, however, been using the...

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...

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...

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...
