Purple Perfume: Elemis Eau De Parfum Exotic Speed Review


I don’t review perfumes that often review because I am no expert, and also I only have about 8 on my dressing table and they are all quite well known branded ones (Chloe, Marc Jacobs Lola, Chanel No. 5 (light version), YSL Parisienne, Stella, Viktor and Rolf etc.). I’m not madly creative when it comes to scent. So I was interested to try Elemis’s Eau de Parfum Exotic; Warm Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Clove Bud […]

Crushed stuff cleanser: Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser Review


A few weeks ago I bought some new skincare from Lush and it’s all been pretty well used so here are some speed reviews of the products! My first purchase was Angels on Bare skin. I tried this stuff years ago when it was sold in a roll and when Lush stores were hard to come by and I hated it. It was difficult to use, stung a bit and was just generally a pain […]

5 Green Nail Polishes: Etude House Petit Darling in Luminous Green GR02


I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! This Etude House Petit Darling nail polish is a bright, bright green – yet it hurts my eyes a little and no I wouldn’t wear it if I had anything serious going on… I guess it’s a bit of fun. It reminds me of glow in the dark paint, whilst it’s glowing. I like the creaminess of […]

So let’s take a look… Vesuvio (sounds like a car): A full bodied red Every lipstick collection needs a decent red and Vesuvio is it. Neither too pink or […]

Cringing at the Counter: When The Boss Goes Bad


So I was shopping at Muji yesterday, one of my favourite places to buy things and was really peeved when I realised all the staff had changed over and the new guys were the archetypal nightmare shop assistants; ignorant, unhelpful, disinterested. That got my thinking all about my experiences in retail as a customer and when I was younger, as a shop assistant. God knows some nightmare customers exist but one thing I found from […]

5 Green Nail Polishes: Etude House Petit Darling Green Nail Varnish GR605


I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! Will green ever be readily accepted as a every day polish? I get weird looks at work when I wear it unless its a pale mint. Anyway this one is a mossy kind of green, quite thick and creamy, it reminds me dark chinese cabbage. Mmm with a bit of Oyster sauce…. This is fairly wearable I […]

I’ve got a crush on you: Who is your current Brand Crush?


It’s a good job I don’t treat my make up like I treat my men, otherwise the current Mr Candy would’ve been replaced 10 times over by now. Go and grab some Pj’s and ice cream, cos I want to talk brand crushes with you (again)… As long as I’ve liked make up I’ve had brand crushes. On one hand I probably have something from most brands you can name, but I also go through […]

Oskia Skincare Pure Nutritional Skincare: Bedtime Boost & Micro Exfoliating Balm Review


Some products are just packaged so beautifully that they have instant appeal. The first time I laid eyes on Oskia I just thought it was a stunning, beautiful skincare range. Simple and elegant. Oskia is derived from an ancient Greek work, meaning ‘delivering nutrients’ and ‘beauty’. Oskia products also include their MSM-Regen Complex™, a naturally collagen boosting, repairing and regenerating ingredient. It’s also paraben free and uses 98% natural or nature-identical ingredients. Got it?! Now….I […]
