Everyone one seems to be luxury candle mad these days; I am afraid I too have joined this club. It’s such a lovely way to fill the house with a subtle scent rather than getting a sudden blast of plastic freesias in your mouth…anyone with a Glade Sense & Spray will know what I am talking about. Anyway, my next Valentine’s gift choice is a massage candle that you can burn and then use to […]
Aloha! It’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s day gifts my dears. Valentine’s I think, is not just for star crossed lovers; what about your best friends, mums and dads and twitter friends?! So over the next week I have some gift suggestions for you; affordable, easy to buy and just really nice treats. For the glamour puss or someone who loves YSL Faux Cils mascara, this Special Edition of the mascara includes a […]
I had been forewarned by my mother and aunts that after giving birth it would be highly likely that I would lose what seems like, a lot of hair. I didn’t really pay much attention, as those first months pass like a haze, and I seemed to do fine in the hair department. Then exactly 3 months post partum, the hair loss began. For me it was handfuls of hair falling out when I had […]
I didn’t actually realise until this morning that there e.l.f are currently running a 48%* off discount code on orders of £30 or more (full price items only). I haven’t looked at elf for ages – the prices have gone up but of course it’s still very affordable. I am afraid I am on a no buy of cosmetics! But if I were buying their new HD liquid blushers look pretty cool, and I have […]
There’s nothing like a beauty product that fills you with confidence; so if you have the skin problem of ‘blackheads’ what can be nicer than using a range called ‘Pig-Nose Clear’. Ouch. “Wow, your skin is looking great! What have you been using on it?” “Er….Pig-Nose” But you know what? I see this as an Asian mother thing. Asian (Chinese) mothers are very good at the appearance based put downs, so I think of Holika […]
I have had a Pinterest account for a while but I never really got it. I decided to make an effort this weekend and have a go and I did have fun building ‘boards’. Basically it’s a place with lots of images and you can search for inspiring pictures to add to your boards – so for example, I was looking for knitted blanket examples so that’s where I started (you can follow me here). […]
Back in December I introduced you to the Gillette Venus Naked Skin IPL Hair Removal System I am currently trialling. I am late with this update post; I’m afraid life and a teething baby has got in the way of these posts and also I have had to retrain myself into the art of video editing (not that easy!). Thankfully, despite how busy I have been, the Gillette Venus system to it’s credit, very easy […]
The final Etude House If Story Nail Kit (don’t ask my why it’s called that!) is called Christmas Tree. I am wondering if Etude will release new LE sets for Valentine’s Day, Easter….it would be nice if they did! Here are the two shades. I like these one, they’re quite funky. The price of these shipped is around £6 for both – I imagine it’s even cheaper to buy in Korea!
