I have been testing some new bath and body products from a UK based brand called Peculiar People – created by Deborah, who started the business due to her love of making handmade high quality products. I have 3 products here to review; Heavenly Hosts Soap, Mango Face Mask and Whipped Body Butter. Interesting fact: Peculiar People is actually a biblical reference (I didn’t know this!).
Oh Jill Stuart. You create the most beautiful looking lipsticks in glossy textures, that are hard to resist. The newest lipstick to join the Jill Stuart family is ‘Lip Blossom’ and debuts with 10 shades. I adored their last lipstick releases - the texture is gorgeous – so I presumed this would be a winner too.
I am so happy, happy, happy, that I have Jo Malone’s Violets and Wisteria in my life. Why, I have a substantial perfume collection, but scents that I truly truly truly love are few and far between. But Violets and Wisteria? It speaks to me. It is very me. For reference, I love light floral and tea based scents, with a hint of musk. I’ve had this scent for months but i’ve waited till now […]
Magnetic Nudes from MAC is a collection of lip, cheek, eye and skin colours with a rich, metallic, smokey, rich edge. I have a selection of products here to review; So what did I think of this vast collection?
I was recently sent some super cute hair ties (bobbles – whatever you want to call them) and they have been sparkling away in my hair for the last few weeks! I do generally wear my hair down but there’s always times when I need to have my hair up because it’s just less in the way but I keep losing my bobbles. These Hair Ties from MyKitch come in a huge variety of designs […]

There’s a big colour choice. They say: One-of-a-kind statement shades for all skintones. Multi-faceted pigments create definition. Lips look beautifully shaped, sculpted, curvaceous. Time-released Moisture Complex helps capture and seal-in hydration.Lips feel continuously moisturised throughout the day. Super creamy, glides on […]
I haven’t bought MAQUillage cosmetics in so long; it was one of the original Japanese brands that fuelled my love of high end cosmetics, and yet I struggle to find anything interesting from the brand. That’s because like many Japanese beauty brands, the range focuses on very wearable, subtle, shimmery, light textures – it’s practical, it’s perfect for the working woman, and yet it’s not that interesting for a beauty blogger to review. After such […]
My beautiful Italian friend, Anna, (THANK YOU!!!) went to…well, Italy, and came back with a rather impressive large block of cheese for me (Pecorino! It’s so strong, it’s the real thing!) and this rather lovely selection of Kiko Cosmetics – my first ever dabble in the range! There is a Kiko flagship store in London now (Regent Street) but I am glad that I’ve avoided the hype so far and can now in a leisurely […]
