La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum

Wishing you all a very Happy New Years Eve!
Here's a peek at a fantastic new product from La Roche Posay launching in January 2016 - the Hydraphase Intense Serum 
I love La Roche Posay - they are always bringing out really innovative products that complement the rest of the range, or any other brand of skincare you are currently using.
My dry and sensitive skin adores the brand, having used their products for the past few years, I am always intrigued to see what else they can bring out to be the next big thing!
If hydration is a skin concern of yours, then the new Hydraphase Intense Serum will really change up your skin care for the better.

A Very Merry Christmas!

Image Source

Just a little message to wish you all a fantastic Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

I'll be spending the festive period with friends this year, which will be lovely - but because I have no family (were estranged) Christmas always makes me feel like I'm a spare part!

Don't forget it's OK if you want to spend Christmas Day on your own, you do YOU - it's only one day after all, and my favourite time is the Boxing Day sales where I will be treating myself to some bargains on Space NK, Zara and New Look.
There's so much pressure over the festive period to buy the best gifts, look your best and be seen to be 'doing' something.  Take the pressure off and relax, cook nice food and watch the TV.  That's what I will be doing, especially with my two cat husbands.

Thanks for all your support in the past few months, 
I'll be posting a new post again before the New Year.

How will you be spending your Christmas Day and Boxing Day?

Lots of love and Christmas cheer!

The Perfume Society - Putting On The Spritz Discovery Box

I adore finding new perfumes to wear.
Afterall, a fragrance is your personal trademark and it's a tough choice to make!

Mr Nutcase

I LOVE my technology.  
Having recently received an Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge mobile upgrade 
(P.S this phone is the bomb diggity!), 
I am always trying to protect my gadgets in the best way possible.
My best friend is my IPad Mini.  It serves my anxiety well with it's own chip on 4G, meaning that I can connect anywhere, and use it's GPS for finding venues on the go.
Protecting it in my overflowing handbag is a top priority, this is where Mr.Nutcase came in to play!
A company that is passionate about creativity, Mr.Nutcase allows you to create bespoke phone cases, Macbook covers and more!
I decided on the Ipad Mini 2 Retina Display case

August and September 2015 Monthly Favourites

I love checking out other people's monthly favourites videos.

If you read my last post about By Terry 'Here' you would know how intrigued I am by this brand.
Not only does Terry ensure the packaging of her products is beautiful, but the ingredients are ingenious.
I'm constantly on the look out for the next best thing in the mascara stakes, and when I received a sample size of the By Terry Mascara Terrybly Lash Booster Mascara - I just couldn't wait to trial it.
Over two months on, and this little baby has run out - so it's time to tell you my thoughts....

My Little Box Review - September 2015

Patience is a virtue right?  When it comes to the delivery of My Little Box, my boxes seem to ALWAYS be late!  So my patience runs thin :-( 
I can't pay extra for quicker delivery (I've already asked) So I'm stuck watching you lovely lot opening your boxes and posting the pics all over social media.
It's OK the boxes make up for the wait, plus interacting with you guys makes it all worthwhile.
Let's delve into the September My Little Fashion Box....

Vichy Idealia

I adore Vichy.  I first reviewed the brand back in 2014, which you can view 'Here'
They are so innovative with their products, and are always striving for the best and latest in skincare.
Luckily for me, when something new from Vichy launches - I am invited to their fantastic events.
A few weeks back I was introduced to the Idealia range, a range that offers a suite of radiance moisturisers to smooth and improve the first signs of ageing.  
With the Idealia's pink packaging - I was instantly hooked!

Microsoft Lumia 640 Windows Phone

A few weeks back I was contacted by the team at Lumia Voices, asking whether I'd be interested in trialling the new Microsoft Lumia 640 Windows Phone.  How could I say no?  
This phone is the latest from the Lumia range too.
Being a HUGE tech geek, and knowing that my current mobile contract was coming to an end, and an upgrade was due imminently - this gave me that chance to put the windows phone to the test!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending Space NK in Chelsea; where the team at By Terry introduced me to the latest innovation - the Light Expert Click Brush.  
This illuminating flawless foundation brush offers sculpting, smoothing and buildable coverage - all of this but with a natural finish?  It was love at first sight!

Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum

Happy Friday!  
Being 34 I am always on the lookout for anti ageing products that make a difference or bring something new to the table.

As you know from reading my blog, I'm a skincare junkie and simply adore trialling new skincare products that will plump my dry skin.  
Luckily for me I was sent the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum to try.

Currently Lusting After - September 2015

Another month starts, and the eagle eyed me has been on the warpath for some bargains!
This month only a few things have caught my eye.  I think I'm saving my beauty shopping till I go to Paris! 
A mixed bag for September but all quality items....


Friday, 4 September 2015


Happy Friday friends!
A nice short week for us this week, but hasn't it dragged?
Today I'm talking all about Hair reduction.  Not a topic that I have ever covered on my blog before, but one every woman, or man for that matter has experience with.
I have tried everything in my 34 years - epilating, waxing, threading.
They all work with varying results.

Then I was asked if I’d like to know about Elōs Technology and the iluminageTOUCH.  I was intrigued, what was this unit? And how would it provide me with permanent hair reduction?
The iluminageTOUCH unit is impressive looking, this was my first thought – something out of Superman and his The Fortress of Solitude!
Incredibly space-age-looking; but lightweight and easy to store.

Happy Bank holiday lovely people!  I hope your enjoying the little break?
A different sort of post from me today, but when a brand who are completely new, approaches you to collaborate for their launch; you do your research, and send an email back to say yes!!

Sundried are an exciting brand launching in 2016.  
Apparel wear with a fantastic ethos - this brand is designed by athletes who care deeply for the environment.

Scholl Review and Product Giveaway!

I try to take good care of my feet.  I'm not a mad flip flop / sandal wearer, but being a typical Pisces if my feet are uncomfortable, then so am I!
I've always watched the TV adverts for the Scholl Express Pedi with great intrigue; but I've never taken the plunge and purchased one.  Until the team at Scholl got in touch and asked if I'd like to review the Express Pedi, and offer some of their footcare range as a giveaway to you lovely people!  
How could I say no?!

Currently Lusting After - August 2015

It's been quite a while since my last 'Currently Lusting After' post back in June 'Here'
Things have changed somewhat - my health problems are still going on, but I wasn't made redundant (hurrah!!) and instead I got redeployed (for the time being) so at least I'm keeping myself going, and learning new things!

My lusting after items never ends though - I'm ALWAYS searching out new things and making plans to buy them.  
A holiday this year would be lovely, but I've got to sort myself out and get back to being well, so who knows... a nice last minute trip before Christmas would be wonderful - watch this space.

Lot's of bargains in today's post, let's delve in... 
(P.S I'm posting this of a Tuesday? - this is a first!)

Looking for Primark items, but don't have time to shop in store? I have the answer!

I'm sorry for the delayed post! Think headache exploding pain, and generally feeling like crap, and that will kind of explain why I've not been around much!  I had annual leave booked, and spent most of it ill - delightful NOT!

Anyways enough moaning from me, today's post is an interesting one.  I last blogged about the fabulous Blondedge 'Here' back in 2014 - and the team behind the site have stocked more online Primark bargains on dedicated sites for Primark Handbags, Primark Onesies, and Primark Bikinis.

For those of you lovelies who don't live near to a Primark store, this might solve your problems!
No more elbow tackles, no queues - just the pick of the Primark best, at the touch of a button.

LookFantastic Beauty Box August 2015 - Review

I'm a total Look Fantastic Beauty Box novice!  
I've never ordered one of the sites beauty boxes, but I have read tons of reviews. 

These boxes sell out fast, so that's a really positive sign.
When the Look Fantastic Beauty Box for August 2015 - came to my door, this weekend - I squealed with delight, and even more so when I opened the box and saw this months contents!
Worth £55.00 and all for £15.00 with free postage and packing - I think I've found a new addiction.

Friday, 31 July 2015

Introducing Zeek and a Mini Feel Unique Haul!

Happy Friday!
I adore finding new innovative ways of saving some cash.  
When my Twitter feed started going a bit mental over a new app for gift vouchers called Zeek, I was intrigued!  In the hopes of saving some cash I downloaded the app to my Android device (it's also available for Apple devices too) and a new addiction was formed!

The New Thing - Maybelline 'The Nudes' Palette Review

I adore eyeshadows, but I'm not one for a smokey eye every day.
Nude and soft pink shades are my go-to for everyday wear.
When I saw the Maybelline The Nudes Palette advertised on TV I knew I had to buy it!

Friday, 24 July 2015

My Little Box Review - July 2015

So the latest offering from My Little Box UK has arrived for July.  
You can watch my video below, where I clarify why I'm disappointed with My Little Box.

I liked the theme of this months box, I loved the Essie nail polish and the Micellar water from Garnier which I use everyday anyway.

The New Thing - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette

There's a lot to be said about 'hyped up' make-up products in the blogging community.  
Hourglass Cosmetics is one of those brands, you know you read about the pigmentation, the packaging, the limited edition's etc but until you take the plunge yourself; you just don't 'get it' the Ambient Lighting Blush palette has been on my make up wishlist forever!

When I collated birthday gift vouchers, and a payday together - the kind souls at Space NK went above and beyond to get me this very much lusted after palette.  It was sold out (and still is) on Space NK so they got it shipped from a store in the North of England for me.  
And I must confess I wear each of the blushers every single day.
