Little Beauty Temptations at the Till!


Has anyone noticed that more and more fashion stores are sticking little bits and bobs near the til area to tempt us? Top Shop, Forever 21, H&M etc all seem to do it.  I guess it makes sense, a bit like having the gum and chocolates by the till at the supermarket! I rarely shop in H&M – I just don’t find the quality very good, but they do some good little sales and homeware […]

My Mother’s Day Promise and Win Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Collection Set!


For Mother’s Day, Boots UK asked me (and other people!) to share a promise to my ma, linked to a gift I would choose for her.  Well, my mum isn’t one for potions and lotions, so for me, my ideal gift to her is something with her favourite person in the whole world – Baby Candy, aka. Harrison! What could be nicer than a photo canvas for her wall marking the first 6 months of […]

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Make Up Review!


The Urban Decay ‘Naked’ franchise (if I can call it that) is getting bigger and more comprehensive year by year, and now they have created a lightweight foundation, the ‘Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid’ base. It comes in a very sleek looking tall bottle: There is 30ml of foundation in this bottle and it comes in 18 shades, which seems to cover very fair to dark skins. The number system with a point 5 indicates a […]

Moving my MAC eyeshadows! MAC Large Eyeshadow Palette Review! (Pic Heavy)


I am utterly utterly obsessed with depotting eyeshadows and getting them altogether in one place (an example - however I have changed my view on Unii palettes, read on!) so when I saw the new style MAC empty palettes with the clear lids I knew i had to have them. I didn’t actually realise how many MAC eyeshadows I had collected over the years – I thought I had about 10 because I don’t buy MAC […]

Dove Men+Care Skincare Range Overview and Review


Dove Men+Care is a skincare range aimed, unsurprisingly, at Men, and focuses on a few core essential products that are supposed to encourage the ‘guys’ into taking care of their skin. The range is split into types; Sensitive, Hydrate and Revitalise, although one can mix and match as I am sure a lot of people could do with a mixture of the three! Mr C received a Face Wash, Moisturiser, Post Shave Balm and Shaving […]

New Granny Hobby Alert: Crochet! Cute Baby! Hats!


As if I have time for hobbies; what with looking after Baby H, an army of kitties, work, household chores – who has time to do ‘other stuff’?! But sometimes that other stuff, even if it’s just for 15 minutes a day (in my case!) is a really nice way to relax a little. So my new hobby is – Crochet. I squarely blame this new hobby on Bubblegarm who makes really beautiful blankets, hats […]
