Archives for July 2010
I had a haul arrive on Saturday, consisting of some Hello Kitty vanity bags and and a mini umbrella. The arrival of this order is a bit of a weird one. See, I ordered on the 15th of June and the items arrived on the 10th July which is – ages…. Achica is one of […]
I was invited to try Xtreme Lashes, done by the lovely Esme Winterflood – a make up artist by trade who has also trained in applying lash extensions. Lash extensions are glorious, although there are pros and cons. One of the major cons is damage to the lashes – depending on how good your technician […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. No. 14 is a sheer polish with a chunky silver glitter. What do you think?
Skip over to Zuneta’s Blog today where I am guest posting! Go on! You know you want to!?
Clever Illamasqua will be offering customers 25% off when they bring in an old piece of make up in exchange for the new. There must be some rules right?! They are: 1. The offer runs from Saturday the 17th July to Saturday 31st July (2 weeks) 2. It will be available at Selfridges Oxford Street […]
I made a nice haul at MAC during a recent trip to London. Because I am on a no buy now (ahem) I thought I may as well buy some bits from the In The Groove collection and some other cosmetics I’ve been meaning to try: I have to say, all the MAC SA’s I […]
Final part of my NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss Swatches! Today is Sugar Pie (first from the left) the lightest shade of the 6 I bought. It turns into a whitish-silvery-pink on me with some fine sparkle: What do you think?
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. A very sheer plum. What do you think?
Don’t know why I’ve suddenly got into nail polish lately – maybe because I have more patience to apply it?! Anyway one of my recent hauls is this extremely, extremely cute nail polish set from Ettusais! The Vacance Nail are a set of sheer, scented mini polishes retailing for $4 each. I bought a set […]
What’s a great way to wear red? Why, sheer of course! NYX’s Juicy Red is a very sheer red gloss with no sparkle: The result on me is more pink than red. If you want something really sheer but sorta juicy, this gloss may work: What do you think?
A few weeks ago I attended The Body Shop Blogger event which was lovely – they always know how to throw a well organised event! One of the products highlighted was this Soft Hands Kind Heart Hand Cream – £3.45 of the purchase is donated to ECPAT, a charity who work to stop the trafficking […]
I have raved about the benefits of Emu Oil a while ago, as I found it highly hydrating and also soothing. Golden Emu Oil is a great choice on a budget and Dremu is also excellent but more expensive. This Golden Emu and Poppy Seed Bath Oil is special because it’s hydrating, soothing and anti-inflammatory […]
Three slightly different posts for you today, with some big (and niche) brands supporting various charities. I know it’s not the same as personally donating, but the idea is that if you are looking to buy some beauty products anyway, you may want to pick something with a charitable edge. Elemis have launched a kit […]
I am a serial gift giver. I can give presents all day, every day. I am a hard person to buy for though – I have most things that I want, and I am quite picky. My tastes change all the time too. So I spend my time giving instead. The last gift I bought […]
Hair dye tips, from someone who dyed their hair green? Yes, really. I get a lot of questions about the Japanese Hair Dyes, so I thought I’d do a quick post on choosing a Japanese hair dye and also show the gorgeous new visuals from Palty – the shades haven’t actually changed, but Palty do […]
Just the name Sweet Heart is lovely for a lip gloss, isn’t it? Sweet heart is a sheer pink with a touch of white – the kind of shade I can imagine Kim Kardashian wearing. Dontcha think? I personally think it’s too light for me. What do you think of this colour?
I have completely forgotten what the shop I got this from was called – it was from The Clothes Show any how. Charlene bought it for me – why? She knows why. There’s a lot of this generic jewellery around at the moment, but I have a thing for pearls and gold toned jewellery. I […]
I was sent to Eleven Hair on 11 Blenheim Street, London over the weekend to get my khaki coloured hair sorted out (it was lightened to almost white, then I dyed over it with an ash and it went green). So off I toddled to Eleven Hair Salon, which is nice and central, just off […]
