I get about 9 million emails from Strawberrynet (once you subscribe, you never can seem to unsubscribe) and every now and then I do have a look at the newsletters to see what bargains they have. Their prices are much higher then they used to be, and they’ve added on the option of paying the VAT at the time of purchase so you don’t have to wait for your product to sit around in customs […]
A few weeks ago I mentioned the Olay Regenerist Big British Beauty Poll 2012 – well, the results are finally in and here are a few of (what I thought!) were the most interesting finds! Some key discoveries are: – Women are spending 15% less on beauty in 2012 vs. 2010 – Anti-Ageing skincare is the last thing women are prepared to sacrifice – 79% of women won’t spend more than £30 on an anti-ageing […]
Since we are now nearly at the end of November, I can discuss the topic of Christmas without apologising – right?! Let’s start the gift giving series with one of the most giftable brands of all – Jo Malone. I have become horribly obsessed with home scents and candles recently, and no, we are no longer talking about Scent and Spray (if you don’t know, it’s a device that automatically sprays a whiff of air […]
People quite frequently ask me, What is my favourite mascara? And my answer usually is…I dunno. It changes. Plus my lashes aren’t like your lashes, they’re straight and kind of awkward so, it takes a special kind of mascara. It’s like having big boobs or big feet; you need to buy good quality, expensive, rare bras and shoes because otherwise you just don’t have the comfort or support. Those with average sized boobies and feet […]
Just a quickie to let you know we are implementing a new, cleaner blog design (as you can see). It’ll probably take a day or two to implement all the changes and there may be little bugs as we go along – if you spot a problem (like you try to leave a comment and it doesn’t work) then by all means let me know! All new! Like a brand new kitteh!
[noskim]It’s nearly December, which means it’s time to seriously think about gifts – that’s if you haven’t started already! Now, Boux Avenue is quite a new discovery for me – it’s a ladies fashion store that specialises in lingerie, nightwear, swimwear and accessories, and there are both high street shops and an online website to purchase from. The website offers free delivery for orders over £50 or free if you have it delivered to a store. […]
Even though it isn’t for everyone I do love a bit of toner. It just balances out my skin and make everything feel fresher – I sometimes use an exfoliating toner (but not too often) and I also use a hydrating one in a mist or on a sheet mask (which is very common in Japan and is recommended by Chizu Saeki). I started using this Yon-Ka (a French brand, although I think it sounds […]
It’s 7am and I have a spare moment ladies, so is it too soon to talk about Christmas?! Nah! I don’t know about everyone else but there isn’t anything overwhelming I want…there never really is, so it’s hard thinking of bits and pieces sometimes for people (apparently I am ‘impossible’ to buy for as I tend to just get what I want!). Having said that I have been perusing the net and come up with […]
