For someone who was never really that bothered about handbags, and was more concerned about the contents in it, I have been a bit busy lately adding some new pieces to my minimal collection. Don’t get me wrong, I have the standard girly collection of clutches for an evening, the odd designer piece to keep my Instagram jealousy under control and a few key styles to go with an outfit, but since I’ve been getting into fashion blogging, I’m getting obsessed. In the last few weeks, I’ve added a handful of bags to my collection and each one has been… View Post

Every month I am receipt of one or two beauty subscription boxes, most noticeably Birchbox and Cohorted. I love the suspense of seeing what is in each box, and the thrill of finding new products that I may not have tried before. Each subscription box is made for each and every person who has an interest in beauty. Type The Hype have come up with a clever little box, which is made exclusively for the bloggers that they work with. If you haven’t heard of Type The Hype before and you are a blogger, then you must sign up. Type… View Post

My love for the brand new collection from Estée Lauder is still going strong, and The Estée Edit has made a great impression on me. From The Estée Edit The Edit Palette to the great complexion items, there isn’t a product that I have tried that I don’t like. Finishing off my Estée make up collection is the Mattified Lipstick in You’re Welcome, a creamy matte in a stunning vibrant red. As a lipstick lover, I am always on the hunt for perfect shades to fit my lipstick wardrobe and this red is just what I have been looking for.… View Post

Can you believe this weather that we are having? It’s amazing that the UK is finally getting some much needed blue skies and warm sun, but my wardrobe is so not equipped for UK hot weather. Sure, I have my long haul trip clothes, but I don’t want to be wearing the same clothes that I wear when away as I do at home. There has been only thing for it, and that has been to buy some new clothes. Luckily, there have been mid season sales on everywhere, so I have stocked up on basics, as well as some… View Post

If there was any excuse to forget your makeup bag when going on holiday, this would be it. The NARSissist #JetSetter collection, exclusive to World Duty Free, has had me feeling summer ready in an instant. Having to travel frequently means that I am always on the lookout for deluxe sample sized products and travel sizes to keep in my handbag, so I get a tad excited when it comes to miniatures of my favourites, especially NARS. It has been known for me to forget vital things when I have gone away on trips, most memorably, my glasses on a… View Post

Sometimes, I actually can’t believe my luck when it comes to my job and where I work. Not only do I get chance to visit Sephora as frequently as I do Asda, but I also have the opportunity to walk through World Duty Free on a weekly basis, where all my favourite brands are at a mere fraction of the price compared to on the high street. My only niggle is that my terminal that I fly from doesn’t yet have a NARS or Urban Decay counter but I’m sure, in time, one will appear. The airport is such a… View Post

Nothing makes me happier than a new range of lipstick, so I’m pretty certain that you could imagine my delight when Urban Decay relaunched their entire lipstick line. Gone are the Revolution and in it’s place, the brand new 100 strong line of Vice lipsticks. 100 lipsticks. Can you imagine the choice. A nude for every skin tone, a bright for a night out, a green for Halloween. I honestly couldn’t believe the choice when I spotted them in Debenhams. The lipsticks launched last month, with a new look and new formulations and with Ruby Rose fronting the campaign, Urban… View Post

When I think about all of the hair styling tools I own, I can honestly say that there is one brand that has been there for me for over twelve years. Twelve years of having super straight, or tumbled and tousled hair courtesy of the brand that has become synonymous with hair styling. Of course, I’m talking about ghd, the brand that has been making my hair look amazing for over a decade. In my ghd lifetime, I’ve had three pairs of the classic styler, in various limited edition designs and now I have just added a fourth to the… View Post

Well would you believe it! Soap and Glory, the bathroom beauty staple has turned ten years old. It seems like only yesterday that I purchased my first ever Soap and Glory Righteous Butter, which now has cult classic status. Over the years, my bathroom has housed so many of the iconic pink packaged products including the infamous Sugar Crush body scrub and my absolute fave, the Foam Call body wash. Christmas isn’t Christmas without taking delivery of The Big One, the ten product strong selection wrapped up in a limited edition toiletry bag. In fact, I’m that obsessed with Soap… View Post

Totally off topic, but you’ll never guess what has happened to my baby; my blog. It got hacked. There was a moment in which I thought that my content from the last three years had been totally eradicated but with the help of my host, some tactical backing up and a tiny bit of knowledge of cPanel and FTP, we have managed to get it back in working order. Thank god for that as the calmness that I was displaying yesterday would have soon turned to hysteria if I had lost THREE whole years of my life. It made me… View Post

A few weeks ago I had a wonderful afternoon in Space NK with the adorable Jini, head of PR for Space NK. I was given the opportunity to have a good old chin wag, whilst we looked at the new, the cult and the holy grail of products whilst browsing the Manchester store. To say I was in my element was an understatement. Not only was it amazing to chat to a like minded person, but it was so nice to have some insider information on some products that were totally new to me. After feeling like a kid in… View Post
