The Little Black Dress Challenge

Hello beauties! It might be a little early to mention the ‘C-word’ (I know, I know…) but my mind has very much turned to looking forward to the festive season lately. Maybe its because life hasn’t been that much fun around here, but I’m already looking forward to the release the festivities bring  – the parties, the drinking, the eating, the relaxation.…

October Glossybox Review

Hello my lovelies Its been box city central round here lately with the October Birchbox unexpectedly arriving and, hot on its heels, the month’s offering from Glossybox. But, after a stellar September offering, Birchbox seem to have returned to their usual offering which doesn’t really wow me – on the whole I much prefer Glossybox. Would they keep their crown this month? First impression –…

Avon’s Best Products: Revealed!

Exciting news my beauties, I’ve found someone in my office who does Avon, so of course I had to place a little order of some of my all time favourite products that they do. I have such a lot of love for Avon. My mum used to do it when I was little, and some of my earliest make-up memories are of…

#FABBBirmingham: The Lowdown

This weekend saw FABB Events hit Birmingham and I was like a kid the night before Christmas. I knew it was going to be pretty spectacular, and a lot bigger than blogging events I’d been to before- with about 100 bloggers all converging on Alfie Birds in the Custard Factory  I was also looking forward to catching up with some of my blogging friends and also…

OOTD: Autumn Haze

  This week, Seb and I have some time off booked. Its just a long weekend at home, but we’re both so exhausted by ongoing house dramas that its been a really vital opportunity for us to relax and enjoy some time together. On Friday, we decided to head into town to grab some lunch at Pilot. Its a fabulous new restaurant…

October Birchbox Review

Hello puddings! Welcome to my October Birchbox review. I totally didn’t expect to be doing this. I wanted to cancel my Birchbox subscription, but I didn’t do it in time and this turned up faster than I thought. Birchbox was something I used to subscribe to, but I got bored of it and switched to Glossybox a while back, which I’ve been much happier…

Review: Smashbox Full Exposure

This is another long overdue post I can’t believe I haven’t done before! For my birthday, waaaay back in June, I got given the Smashbox Full Exposure palette from my lovely husband. It was something I’d wanted for a while, but never been able to justify, so I was really excited by it. I didn’t actually use it for quite a while…

Loving Her Style: Emma Watson

Welcome back to the occasional series of posts where I pick one of my many style icons and dissect why their look is just so damn fabulous. This time, its a lady I’ve been meaning to profile for ages: Emma Watson. In some ways, it feels odd to have such a style crush on a girl that is so much younger than…

Selfridges Haul: Urban Decay and Mac

When I was over for the #bhmbloggermeet event a couple of weeks ago it would have been rude not to pop over to Selfridges beauty hall after the main event and see what treats were waiting to be discovered. That place is a total candy store for anyone who loves all things make-up. I didn’t go totally wild, because I’m supposed to be watching…

Life, Lately

  Hello my little teacakes Once upon a time, I used to do an occaisional series of posts called ‘A Week in the Life’, which pretty much did what it said on the tin. These fizzled out, mainly because, I’m sorry to say, an average week in my life is not that exciting, and I didn’t think you’d all want to read…
