In the unlikely situation of getting hot & sweaty: KOKURYUDO Ice Remake Spray Review


Thought I better get this one in quickly before the British summer disappears any more. Whaddya mean, it’s already dead, finished, over?! It’s true, summer lasted about 7 days in the UK. When it was hot however, I quickly purchased this Ice Remake Spray made by KOKURYUDO (no I haven’t had to use it again). KOKURYUDO ‘s Ice Remake Spray is an interesting product – this is a facial refresher or spritz that removes oiliness […]

Beauty Yay or Nay? Are Circle Contact Lenses Dangerous?


A few weeks ago, the press reported that Circle Lenses were becoming increasingly popular in the USA due to celebrities like Lady Gaga, and naturally questionedjust how safe these lenses are to use. According to the New York times, it is currently illegal to sell contact lenses without a prescription in the United States (I believe this is not the case in the UK because I have found British sites selling fashion contact lenses). US […]

Tepid, just tepid: Friday Facial at the Urban Oasis Spa, Debenhams Review


You know how you really, really look forward to something all week, and then when it comes it’s just a big disappointment and you just feel kind of…cheated? I felt this way twice this week. The first was dinner at Market Kitchen Restaurant, Manchester – the food was bland, the portions small, the service slow. The waiter got shouted at so many times I felt sorry for him and left him a tip even though […]

Smokey Eyes Made Easy: L’oreal Studio Secrets Smokes Eyeshadow Quad is Forest Review


As a rule, I never read the instructions to anything because I reckon I can figure it out…so when I saw L’oreal Studio Secrets Smokes Eyeshadow Quad I knew I had to buy one because it looked like the kind of thing that had instructions, that I could deliberately not read. The L’oreal Smokes Eyeshadow Quad is a simple little thing to use – there are four colours, all numbered and there’s a clear guide […]

5 Orange Nail Polishes: Boots No. 17 Lasting Nail Polish in Tropical Island


I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Oranges! I was seriously surprised by this little beauty from Boots No. 17 when I got it. The texture is fabulous – it’s a little bit thin, which I like, it was so easy to apply and smooth, the colour was vivid and it dried quickly, and lasted a week with no top coat. LOVE. I would happily […]
