60 Day Make Up Spending Ban – Week One

Nars Unfiltered II Cheek PaletteIf you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that lately there’s been an abundance of make up pictures. I have so many new palettes and yes I know I owe you all a lot of swatch pictures and they’re coming I promise, but right now let’s get back to the reason for this post. After realising I’d gone a little crazy with my eBay make up hauls I decided to put myself on a 60 day makeup spending ban and here’s how week one has gone.Read more »

SORTEDfood and Co-Op presents NowCookIt

Earlier in the year I told you all about the #CookingGap, the partnership between Co-Op and SORTEDfood to tackle the lack of cooking experience that has developed in the 16-35 generation in the UK. Through Co-Op’s research and SORTEDfood visiting schools and universities, and much more hard work, Now Cook It was born.Read more »

The Leigh Koslow Mystery Series, Edie Claire

I’ve never really posted about books before yet I read between 5-7 books every month, which I know because this year I decided to track my reads and see how much I can get through in a year. I’ve always enjoyed reading and over the years I’ve come to realise that my favourite books to read are from the Crime, Thriller and Mystery genre, and in particular I love a series that you can sink your teeth into. So I’ve decided it’s time for me to start including book reviews on the blog, and I’ll be starting with The Leigh Koslow series by Edie Claire.Read more »

Nanshy Elegant Diamond Makeup Brush Belt

Nanshy Elegant Diamond Brush BeltThis time last year I gave in my notice at Bare Minerals and prepared to hang up my brush belt and return to office life. Whilst I hated the first office I worked in I’m now very happy at Debenhams Head Office but I really do miss my brush belt and working with make up. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this Nanshy Brush Belt at Pro Beauty for the bargain price of just £10, instead of it’s retail price of £25.Read more »

Colour Pop Lip and Highlighter Haul

Colour Pop Lip and Highlighter Colour

Colour Pop is an American brand that I had seen a lot of bloggers raving about and I was planning on picking some bits up when I go to Florida in August but luckily for me I got a chance to try it earlier. I got a message from Lauren from Blonde Vision saying she was planning on buying some bits and if a few of us went in together we could split the delivery and tax charges and it wouldn’t end up costing anyone an arm and a leg.Read more »

Spectrum 12 Piece Bomb Shell Brush Set and Must Have Minis

Spectrum Bomb Shell and Mini Must HavesA couple of weeks ago I attended Pro Beauty at ExCel London, which was actually a bit disappointing compared to previous years. A lot of brands I would make a point of seeing in previous years weren’t there and there seemed to be an overload of nails and salon machines. Whilst I left earlier than I usually would I didn’t come away completely empty handed and picked up a couple of bargains including two sets of Spectrum Brushes.Read more »

The About Me Tag

A very busy March, both in and out of work, saw me as usual neglect the blog. I seriously could do with some tips on how you all keep up with it alongside a full time job, going to the gym and going out. I have never managed to grasp this concept and literally bow down to those of you who manage to do it all, give yourself a round of applause. I thought I’d come back with an About Me Tag as you’ve probably forgotten all about me and personally I’m really nosey and love posts like this.

The Bannatyne Spa Orpington

I always seem to be having conversations with friends about booking a spa weekend or going for a spa day, but it just never seems to come to fruition. This all changed recently when the Spa Manager from The Bannatyne Spa in Orpington invited me to the opening day of the spa.

Achieving the Fitness Levels of a Movie Star

 

Lara Croft is one of those larger than life video game characters. She’s been the epitome of girl power ever since she became the titular protagonist of a cult classic, Tomb Raider, in 1996. Fans and non-fans alike, know her as an intelligent, independent English archaeologist who, at the drop of a hat, transforms into a strong and agile adventurer. Her character travels to distinct locations all over the world, dealing with unstable terrains, death-defying climbs, and dangerous villains. In hindsight, Lara Croft is lithe yet fervent, graceful but quick, which is why she has the makings of an influential fitness icon.Read more »
