Disclaimer: the same day as I attend the Bloggers Ball event, I noticed that Itsy Nails followed me on Twitter. I messaged them privately, wondering whether they wished to work with me. They sent me ten polishes-five for a giveaway, five to review. What follows is my honest opinion. * Before I begin this review, … Continue reading Itsy Nails Review; pretty gel polish! *
A little while ago, when partaking in a Comment Thread, I came across Dainty Alice; first, this blog had posted about a Lush Haul (click here) which I commented on. But a back link had my interest; a review of American Cream Conditioner. (Click here to view.) I have problematic skin on my scalp, meaning … Continue reading American Cream Review.

Yes please!

Good morning.- If you follow me over on Instagram, you'd have probably have guessed what this post is about. (Ever heard of a 'Sponge dry'?

Disclaimer: Having been sent some Friendly Soap in my Little Known Box, I wished to work directly with the brand. This post contains a PR sample, yet is my honest review, having requested to review the product directly. Part of any hygiene routine involves some form of soap; literally, just to get rid of dirt. … Continue reading Friendly soap review; so good, smells nice, and a free from cruelty brand!*

Imagine this; it's a rainy day, you've been drenched, and drive home in a bit of a sullen mood. You start to blog, seemingly in a miserable mood, but then … Continue reading Benecos Cosmetics Package Review.*
Good morning! I think, after a long time searching, that I have found one of the best eyeliners around: Topshop magic liner. Retailing at six pounds fifty, it is cheap, and quite easy to stash in your handbag. And, as somebody with glasses, it is quite easy to apply. Nice! Packaging: To be totally honest, … Continue reading Topshop magic liner review.
I am very shortsighted, which isn't always the greatest help when applying eye makeup. It's also why I've really admired people such as Anastacia-the tiny singer, who always has immaculate looking eye makeup. But this is also the reason I've stayed away from eyeshadow for a long time; we're more foes than friends in that … Continue reading Studio Eyeshadow Palette Review.
Ladies, may I ask you something? In all of your handbags, pockets, etc, just how many lip products do you have? I usually have a lot-it fits with my rather messy-yet-organised characteristics. This is one of my new favorite lip balms. This was a gift at Christmas; I would now describe myself as a compulsive … Continue reading Mix and Fizz Pina Colada Lip Balm Review.
It's the end of the day. You're tired. You need to sleep. But you have make up to remove, lest the fear and subsequent emergence of Acne stop you. You need a product that'll do the job for you. What to do? Why, go for Garnier Skin Active Micellar product! I'm no expert about … Continue reading Garnier Skin Active Product Review.
Wouldn't you agree that my relative has great taste in giving me this dinky nail set? So, generally speaking, I like to keep my hands well manicured; otherwise, they just look stubby, horrible, and too large. That's achieved, obviously, through nail varnish such as the above-in hues such as red, my favorite. Branding: Well...I think … Continue reading OPI Travel Case Review.
Do you remember this lipstick trend that was going round last year? No? Okay, click here for what Grazia has to say about flowery lipstick. Meanwhile, I'll be writing this review... So, Chinese beauty brand Kaliljumei has created these lovely jelly lipsticks. And they really are a beauty-complete with a mirror down one side, … Continue reading The flowery lipstick of them all…Review.
Now, I'm probably like a lot of you, in that I quite like a lip balm or two, drifting between various pockets and bags, etc. (Because chapped lips are horrible, am I right, ladies?!) So, it was really nice to receive this lip balm for Christmas. Kiko is a lovely cosmetics shop, and I love … Continue reading Kiss Balm Review.
This is going to be a bit of an odd post today, with just a hint of confessional.. I admit, I don't consider myself to be a 'feminine' person-to me, there's more to life than taking ages with make up and hair in the morning. So, I wanted to show a different side to myself-and, … Continue reading Inside My Make Up Bag…
This has been a post that has been floating around for a while...and I really wanted to give it a go (!) A tag is essentially where a blogger answers questions, tags other bloggers sometimes.. How many lipsticks do you own? I thought I had far more, but it seems to be just the above, … Continue reading The lipstick tag.
