Christmas by Guerlain 2015

Hello all! Today I bring you a snowball and some snowflakes, courtesy of Guerlain. I know it's still not December, but this collection has been incredibly popular and I suspect it might be slightly hard to come by now.

I am of course referring to Neiges et Merveilles (Otherwise known as Winter Fairytale).

Lush does Christmas 2015!

Hello all! Today I bring you Christmas, courtesy of Lush. I know it's only November, but you tend to find that the really good bits of the Lush Christmas stuff sell out rather fast.

Bomb has me Incensed!

Hello all! Today I bring you a gift from my sister. I don't often say this, but my sister is rather awesome. Having earnt herself the position of head of HR for a Yankee Candle distributer, and passing her driving test first time, she's doing rather well. Anyways, she sent me a delightful Bomb Cosmetics bath blaster called Incense and Sensibility.

I feel spooky, oh so spooky

Hello all! Today I bring you two Halloween themed candles from Yankee Candle. Now fair warning, they are repromotes, it seems Halloween scents are in decline. So without further ado, I bring you Candy Corn and Witches Brew!

Halloween Shower Scream Queen

Hello all! Today I bring you a Halloween goodie from Lush. A little secret about me, I love Halloween! The silly spookiness, the dressing up, and the goodies! Now Lush does an amazing Halloween release every year  (Sootballs still remain my top Halloween product though), and this year is no exception.

Nars takes me to a Parallel Universe

Overseas Edition: Charles Worthington does holiday hair

So I'm no longer in Spain *sad face*, but I'm still going to call this the overseas edition given that they were tested whilst on holiday. So today I bring you Charles Worthington's Sunshine Protection shampoo and Conditioner.

The overseas edition: Face fluid sunscreen by Piz Buin

So I present to you blogging from Spain! This week featuring Face Fluid by Piz Buin. Now I know how important sunscreen is, especially on the delicate facial skin, and yet I've never really used a face specific sunblock.

Holiday haul!

And I'm back from Spain! An amazing time was had, and I managed to achieve vague tanning qualities. I also have loads to review over the coming days/weeks, so here's a quick look at what's up and coming.

The saviour of the clumsy nail artist by Barry M

Hello all! You'll have to bear with me, things are a bit manic with planning for holiday, hen days, and work being work, so I might go a touch quiet every so often. So today I bring you an offering from Barry M!

Library scented candle... Need I say more?

I have been looking forward to this review for a while, and since the Boy was kind enough to indulge me (I think he was secretly curious himself), I bring to you Birch & Brook Library scented candle.

Feeling Rosey

Ah rose gold. This colour is everywhere these days, from watches to nail polish, to jewellery, to hair colour! Stands to reason that make up companies are going to cash in on this serious trend, and I for one am loving that.

Man go Pouffe

There is an eternal struggle in my world currently... the Boy and his love for Pears soap. Multiple options are being trialed; rhubarb soap was one, and there was an Original Source shower gel (and this is where the newest trial comes in). So today we have I Love...Mango and Papaya Shower Gel and Bath Creme.

Am I feeling Angelic...

Today, not so much if I'm honest. However you are not here to read about my problems, unless they are make up related! So I bring to you Angel Wings by Ciaté. Oh Ciaté I struggle so very very hard to like you, and this is another delightful example as to why.

Going cuckoo for cocoa

Apologies for awful title, it's late and I'm shattered. I'll think of something better next time. Today I'm tackling my worst habit, moisturising! Despite knowing I should do it to improve the nature of my skin, I cannot stand moisturising, it takes too long to rub in, I end up with a residue, it makes my clothes stick to get the idea... So anything that makes this process easier is a godsend.

Lime and Dandy cotton candy!

So not quite cotton candy, but soap! Bomb Cosmetics soap to be exact, and what a delightful little soap this is. Those who have been following this blog for a while will know my ever so slight obsession with Bomb Cosmetics, and this is one of my latest acquisitions.

Pop on some Party Shoes

Huzzah! It's a polish post, and today we have Ciaté Party Shoes. Now Ciaté I am finding at a discount everywhere, from TKMAXX to (brilliant deal on a gel nails kit there at the moment), and this the Boy picked up for me for £2 in London *joy*.

And I'm back; with my working basics.

Sorry all, took a bit of an unexpected hiatus at the end of last year due to personal reasons and health issues. So I'm back! And with me I bring my everyday essentials, the products that bring me up to acceptable on those mornings. You know the ones I mean, where you didn't quite get enough sleep, you left the toast in too long, and you forgot that one report/folio you really needed today...sound familiar? Yep, those mornings.
