Cute Bobbles! Kitsch Hair Ties from MyKitch


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 […]

MAQUillage True Eye Shadow BL231 Review and Swatches


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 […]

Kiko Cosmetics First Try: Smoky Look Eyeshadow, Water Eyeshadow and Smart Lipstick


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 […]

Seventeen Instant Glow Cream Bronzer Review


Do you remember that not too long ago, No. 17 became SEVENTEEN? I have to be honest, like an old person, I disregarded it and kept calling the brand, No. 17 because it had been that for so long, like how my mum called Cif Jif, or Mr C calls Snickers, Marathons.   Anyway, names aside, SEVENTEEN seems to have moved away from that dark blue packaging into sleeker black one although the feel is […]

Home Bargains Beauty Bargains! Or How to get loads of stuff for £5!


After Selfridges, Home Bargains is my favourite shop in the world!  Not as scummy as pound land (or pound world), with proper brands (not just weird knock offs), you can find a bit of everything you want and need under one store, and plenty of things are under £1! A new one opened near me recently and it’s absolutely massive, AND very very spacious and spotless. I’ve never seen a thing out of place in […]

Mini Blog Sale 2014!


Hello Everyone I very spontaneously decided earlier this week to do a little blog sale as we should be moving soon and I want to get rid of a number of products I have – many are brand new and boxed items that I purchased and have never got round to using/reviewing.  As always, some quick T&Cs; 1) To buy something, leave me a comment filling in: Your Name, your PAYPAL email, and your comment […]
