Hair By SJ Forbes

Like the next woman, I really enjoy getting my hair done.  My hair has gone through a transformation from mousy brunette to blonde, and it's taken me a long time to get here - but I still need some "work"  When the team at SJ Forbes got in touch, offering to rid my hair of the nasty orangey blonde tones - I couldn't say no!

Amelia Moss - Natural Skincare

I adore organic skincare.  
My sensitive skin really needs the purest of formulations to help it out.
When the team at Amelia Moss got in touch, asking if I'd like to try two products from this assured quality, ethically sourced, natural ingredient skincare line - how could I say no?

Hello guys, so you're getting this video a few hours early - as I am snowed under at work! (lucky you)
Here's the latest September 2016 box from My Little Box.
A fashion collaboration this month, with a mixed bag of items, lets delve in...

Homeware Haul with Ocean

As you probably know Marks and Spencers homeware is my current addiction. 
I've recently gone all out since having my own home - and recently purchased a Copper Arc Lamp for my lounge.
When the team at Ocean Loans got in touch and asked me to collaborate with them and update my lounge even more, I couldn't say no!

Liberty Star VIP Box - September 2016

I love homeware - so if there's a homeware inspired subscription box - then I'm all over it! 

When the team at Liberty Star got in touch to tell me all about their new homeware subscription box I was extremely excited!
I loved this little gem of a box - it contained Copper homeware!! *swoon*

Trouva - Designer Homeware

I LOVE Interior Design - a subject which I was contemplating studying at university, but one which I decided against, and I ended up going down another path.
No that I live in my own house, where I have free reign over my interior style; I'm always looking for inspiration.
I have heard of Trouva before, a place where the best boutiques come together to showcase the best in interior inspiration.

Paul & Joe Beaute - Limited Edition Makeup Collection

I adore Paul & Joe Beaute - their packaging is totally beautiful, and their formulations are long lasting.
I last reviewed the brand in July 2015 'Here' and I still wear the nail polish often!
When the brand kindly sent me their latest limited edition collection, I just couldn't wait to share it with you.

Tili Beauty Box

I ADORE QVC - I have done so for years, from market research for them, and job interviews and then attending their annual QVC Beauty Bash - I cannot get enough!  
So when I noticed that "the mothership" had created their own Beauty Box called Tili - Which Stands For "Try it, Love it" for £20.00 - how could I say no??

Antipodes - And why I adore the brand so much

It's not often that one brand is written about on four separate occasions on my blog - so it just goes to show how much I love Antipodes.
To celebrate Organic Beauty Week (it's actually on for 19th-25th September) - I thought I would share with you my must buys from this amazing organic brand!

Scrub Love

Happy Friyay!
What do you lovely lot have planned for the bank holiday weekend?
I’m going to be busy building IKEA furniture and fake tanning.. which brings me onto the subject of exfoliating….
A major necessity for the fake tanners among us, you need to exfoliate to give yourself a good base for your fake tan.
When the team at Scrub Love got in touch telling me about their coffee scrub – I was intrigued. 

My Little Box Review - August 2016

Another month has flown past and it's time for another unboxing video for My Little Box, over on my YouTube channel.

Firmoo.com

Do you wear glasses?  If you're of a certain age like myself - you need all the help you can get!
I can't always get to the opticians, so when the team at Firmoo got in touch, asking if we can collaborate together - I got rather excited!

Purrfect Box

As you know, I adore my two cat husbands!  
When Purrfect Box got in touch, offering my two boys a subscription box full of treats and toys - I couldn't say no.

Velvet Rooms 4 Hair

My Little Box Review - June 2016

So finally after taking ALL DAY to upload, my review of the My Little Box for June is live over on my YouTube Channel!
This month's box is Summer themed, let's take a look inside...

Gothenburg Sweden and a Mini Haul

Last week I was lucky enough to fulfill a dream of mine, by visiting Gothenburg in Sweden!

As someone who loves everything Swedish design; to be invited to go as part of my new job, was an opportunity that I couldn't miss.
We were only there for 3 days, so I couldn't venture out as much as I would've liked - but I still managed to fit in some shopping, networking and drinking along the way!
I thought I would share some small items that I brought back, along with some of my favourite photos from the trip!  (for more gorgeous photos, check out my Instagram Page)

Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Mask

I love face masks!  
A little indulgence during the week, or at weekends for a Sunday night pamper - I always try to make some 'ME' time.
A few years ago I was a regular Dermalogica product user, with facials once a month - I must confess I was addicted. 
Then my life changed and I just couldn't afford this little pamper anymore, and I have missed Dermalogica and their amazingly innovative products, ever since.
Then the team at Dermalogica got in touch, and told me about their new Charcoal Rescue Mask.. and now my Dermalogica addiction is back with a vengeance!

My Little Box Review - May 2016

It's been a long time coming my friends, but I'm back!
The long awaited review of the My Little Box for May 2016 is here, and my unboxing video is below for your perusal.

Mii Cosmetics

With feedback taken from thousands of women that use beauty salons, to develop a totally new range of makeup - Mii Cosmetics is unlike any other makeup brand.  
Combining the finest ingredients, unrivalled expertise and ease of application.
Their packaging is very Nars-esque - of a high quality, and their range is constantly evolving!

Waddle Goose Cyder

Happy Bank Holiday weekend my friends!
To celebrate the long weekend, how about hanging out in the garden with a refreshing Cyder from Waddle Goose?
When I moved house a few weeks back - the team at Aspall got in touch, and offered me a moving in gift in the form of Waddle Goose, the contemporary cyder from Aspall.

Butterfly Twists

Butterfly Twists – a brand that I have heard of before – but I’ve never had the pleasure of purchasing.
When the team got in touch and offered me the opportunity to choose a pair, and then review them, I couldn’t say no.

For someone that when their feet are uncomfortable, they are uncomfortable – I am forever carrying spare trainers in my bag.  The concept of Butterfly Twists is simple – foldable and portable ballet shoes, that fold in half, come in variety of styles - and then can be neatly stored in their own drawstring bag.  

A Fresh New Start....

As some of you might know, this Saturday I am moving house.  It marks a huge milestone in my life.
My first ever home – for me and my two Cat husbands!  
Months of work, packing, and viewings have come down to this – and I am excited and apprehensive at the same time!

It’ll be weird to have so much silence, no housemates around me every day – but I’m excited to begin this next chapter....

My Little Box Review - April 2016

Another month is half done, and this means another box from My Little Box for you lovely people.
This month's theme was My Little Flower Book - a sweet concept for Spring; but not one I fully understand with regards to the contents of this months box.  
To see why, click on my YouTube video below for the complete unboxing.

eSalon

eSalon is such a unique concept!  
You can use the site for a professionally prescribed at home hair colour called 'Custom Colour' or, you can opt for 'The Match-up' where you can either purchase your own range of hair products and then subscribe for those products to be sent to you every month, or if you need some hair help opt for the Get Matched service where a professional hairdresser will recommend products to be sent to you.
I was lucky enough to meet the UK team behind eSalon, and receive the hair products below from 'The Match-up' range.

Currently Lusting After - Typo Stationery

Bee Good

I love supporting British brands.  I've heard tons about Bee Good, and how many awards they have won since starting their business in 2008.
Run by a husband and wife team based in Hampshire, the brand has gone from strength to strength.  What's more Bee Good actively supports British bees, not just with charitable donations, but by a programme of tangible support including the education of young beekeepers and the planting of wildflower meadows across the UK.

Jewellerybox.co.uk

Jewellery - who doesn't love to change up their look with a little ring, and a necklace?

They sell Sterling Silver, 9ct Gold and Gemstones too!

Currently Lusting After - Urban Outfitters

I love Interior Design, it was a subject that I wanted to study at University - but one that fate would have it, meant that my decision ended up going towards Marketing and Communications instead.

I follow soooo many Interior Design bloggers and, because I'm moving at the end of April into my first ever house with my two fur babies - I am always looking for inspiration.
I have never purchased anything from Urban Outfitters homeware before, but know that tons of you have!  So here's my first ever currently lusting after 'interiors themed' post.  

If you like this sort of thing, let me know in the comments below, as I have tons of other things on my wishlist from M&S and BHS too!

Candy Coat

If you have followed my blog for years, you'll know about my addiction to nail polishes!
