This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. F4 is a pale sheer pink. What do you think?
Last weekend was still quite sunny (it’s ridiculously grey, windy and rainy where I am right now! God I wish there was some sun seeing as I’ve just bought a load of summer outfits!). So here’s 4 random photographs from when the sun was still around… 1. Frozen Yoghurt… …is my bag. I am obsessed with it at the moment, it’s nothing like the stuff I used to have as a kid, which was hard […]
I am obsessed with Groupon deals! It’s one of those sites where you sign up for free and you get daily offers for your town. So far I have used it for meals and for 2 treatments and I’ve been really happy with it (not been paid by the way to promote them! Just happy to get a bargain!). I bought a deal for Sienna Spa, where I paid £20 for £50 worth of Spa […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. No. 15 is a sheer polish with gold glitter. What do you think?
I purchased this cute massager from Boots (Natural Collection) for £3.50! I am guessing you can use this on its own or in the shower or on the scalp. Obviously it’s super cute but it’s quite well made too, sturdy and firm but not scratchy: I will probably use this for my scalp when the conditioner is on – I find it helps keep my scalp clean and tingly. Everyone buys weird heart shaped stuff […]
I bought this Integrate Diamond Lipgloss from Adambeauty…it was the only shade left in the sale and I kind of felt sorry for it. Integrate is by Shiseido – it’s spokesperson was once the holy Angelina Jolie. The brand has hits and misses – their mascara is terrific; their eyeliners are average. This is their diamond lipgloss, filled with micro sparkles: The shade is OR249. The tube itself is fairly small and compact and the […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. No. 12 is a sheer polish with a mixture of petrol blue and silver glitter. What do you think?
Wandering through the streets in London I spotted Cyber Candy, which a reader had previously told me about! They seel lots of sweets, snacks and drinks drinks from around the world. It is hideously overpriced and heaven for every shop lifter! Here’s what I bought: I was quite restrained – the prices were too high! I picked up a pack of White Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (my true love), a Twinkie for Mr C, […]
Pop into Boots now and you will see the lovely Frontcover palettes at half price! I love the idea of having everything in one place, although regular readers will know I am not a fan of cardboard packaging. Frontcover may be coming up with something soon to rectify that! Anyway, the offers… Rainbow Eyes was £30, now £15 (this is math I can do!) Mermaid Dreams, £25, not £12.50
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. No. 11 is a sheer canary yellow with silver glitter particles. What do you think?
Myface is a British cosmetics brand brand. They split their products into Fair, Medium and Dark, so that it’s easier for you to choose the right shades… …although rules are made to be broken. I was sent this blusher to try out recently – and although it’s for fair skin (I am medium) it’s such a beautiful matte peach-pink! Reminds me a bit of Nars Gina a little, but more muted. The packaging is unusual […]
I have always loved Nars, so I just had to show you the Fall/Autumn collection for 2010. The collection is a collaboration between Nars & Daphne Guinness, launched on August 1st. To create this look: A coat of Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base, followed by a wash of Daphne Single Eyeshadow. Using the Wide Contour Brush, build color and intensity along the outer eye. For brightness in the inner eye, apply Mangrove Single Eyeshadow and lightly lined […]
Vaseline have launched a Facebook application for their range of skin lightening creams targeted at Indian ‘metrosexual’ men, which lightens half the face to show how much fairer they can look. This has of course caused much fuss: The vehicle Vaseline have used is wrong. To have something as trivial as a Facebook App to show you how much ‘better’ you look with ‘lighter skin’ reduces something that is quite serious and a big commitment […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. F4 is a sheer pink with no sparkle. What do you think?
At the recent Body Shop event, bloggers who attended were given a set of the new Baked Colour Eyeshadows to try out. I was rather excited to get these, since I love baked eyeshadows and they really reminded me of my beloved Too Faced Metor ones, which also have a nice swirl thing going on. They say: Our Baked-to-Last Powders are a fusion of powder and pearl, handmade and baked on hot terracotta discs so […]
Just a few things guys! 1. I can’t believe it’s already Thursday 2. I am playing around with layouts, and I’m experimenting with this magazine layout. What do you think? 3. I am a bit slow with answering emails and comments – my inbox is always down! So please bear with me, same for competition winners, I am processing prizes this week! 4. The site has been a bit problematic for me lately, if any […]
Soooo, the weekend before my No Buy rule, I paid a visit to Fenwicks in London. I’ve never been in the store before and to be honest it reminded me of John Lewis’s circa 1988, when my Nan used to take me shopping for pop socks and navy leather handbags. So I walked past the scary bits of the store, where the SA’s were a little full on, and round the corner was the glorious […]
There has been much chatter about CND’s (Creative Nail Design) Shellac. It looks like nail polish, it applies like nail polish but you set it like a gel, and it lasts for 14 days without chipping (possibly more!). It also comes off in 10 minutes easily and dries immediately – before you leave the salon! I am no nail expert – I have recently become really fond of polish but I can’t tolerate anything that […]
