Valentines Day Gift Suggestion No 2: For the candle lover and massage lover – ooh er!


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 […]

Post Natal Hair Loss Woes: LA Science Follicle Stimulating Shampoo Review


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 […]

Don’t Forget! 48% off at e.l.f. Cosmetics!


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 […]

This Little Piggy: Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Black Head Sugar Scrub Review


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 […]

Now you can Pinterest images on Cosmetic Candy!


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). […]

Gillette Venus Naked Skin IPL Hair Removal System Trial: Part 2

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 […]

Etude House If Story Nail Kit Christmas Collections Swatches in Christmas Tree


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!
