L'Oreal Paris Golden Lace2

Although I absolutely love to paint my nails, I often find myself leaving a manicure job to the last minute and we all know that is when disaster strikes! So this is why I am a massive fan of stick on nails. In fact, it’s really just the L’Oreal Paris ones I love especially as they come with the adhesive tabs. I love them!

A review of the Vichy Eau Thermale*, has been in the works for a while. It was one of my first spa water samples a fair few months ago. I hadn’t had much experience with spa waters, so I have to admit that it took a while to get used to – but a few months down the line and it’s love. Prepare for a rave…

I do love a good weekend pamper. This weekend relatives have come to visit, so I’ve had to make sure that IPL, a constant stream of food and a wi-fi connection is available at all times which hasn’t left an awful lot of time for my usual beautifying shenanigans. But over the past few weeks I’ve refined a little routine that clears up my complexion, cleans up my nails, nourishes my locks and moisturises my body, which I will no doubt be indulging in when they leaves.

I’ve spoken before about my old makeup hoarding ways; being borderline obsessive with tracking down MAC limited edition items, yearning for a nail polish collection that could be described as the complete colour spectrum and dreaming of a spare room full of makeup. But this year it all changed. I’m not sure what exactly happened, but something just clicked. My focus moved to skincare and suddenly I felt a little embarrassed of my ever-expanding makeup stocks so I decided to downsize. Ok, ok so my current makeup stash is by no means the smallest collection out there but for a beauty junkie like myself it’s not too horrendous and it does quite conveniently fit into one drawer. So I thought I would put together a few little tips and tricks for downsizing your makeup stash. The anti-hoarding starts now…

So if you ever felt that although dry shampoo does a great job, that it might not be doing quite so much good to the bounce of your hair, then say hello to Bed Head by TIGI Sugar Dust. This is one of the latest addition to Bed Head’s rather full-to-bursting portfolio of dry shampoos and it promises to deliver twice the benefits of regular dry shampoo.
