The Beauty Edition: Seventeen Shimmer Brick

If there is one product in my make up bag that is an everyday ‘go to’ then it would have to be a highlighter. Perfect for creating a gorgeous glow throughout all seasons winter to summer. There is nothing i love more than a dewy look to the skin. I’ve had my eye on the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, a stunning compact highlighter with neutral to blush shades. Priced at £32.50 i’m trying to convince myself to splurge. On a recent trip to Boots the Seventeen stand caught my eye and there it was, a glowing Shimmer Brick compact, the most perfect dupe. Priced at £4.99 i…

The Food Edition: Sweet Tooth Satisfaction

Forget the in store cake aisle, forget the bakery, have you ever been to a dessert restaurant? Sounds divine doesn’t it. In my local town of Hitchin is a restaurant that dreams are made of, all sweet tooth lovers come together to gorge on sugary goodness.

If you’re anything like me, hopeless at counting calories with a spoon at the ready for a second serving don’t feel too guilty, at £6.00 or less a pudding…

The Beauty Edition: Mabelline Colour Tattoo 24hr

I’m all for a bargain and what’s more a beauty one! I’m certain that if you took a peek in any MUA on the go kit you would find the Mabelline Colour Tattoo 24hr pots. On paper these are an eye shadow but in my eyes, excuse the pun, they are so much more. These little gems work wonders, a gorgeous creamy consistency that does not crease so perfect for a maximum build up of colour. If you have tried the Mac Paint Pots then i would say these are a great dupe, the colour pay off is definitely on par but there is one difference that deserves…

The Beauty Edition: Spring Shades

The sun is peeking through and this reflects in my outfits, although emphasise on the ‘peek’. I’m a November baby so typically a winter girl, give me grey and black any day. Throughout Spring/Summer i do like to incorporate notes of colour and something subtle like a pastel nail shade will do for me.

The bottles have a gorgeous check design, like a racing flag and the names are based on Formula…

The Beauty Edition: Bamboo Beauty Brushes

Flawless skin is something we all dream of, right? Grabbing all sorts of lotions and potions in the hope that they will give us a miracle glow to the skin. Just lately i realised it’s not always in the products you use but the tools to apply them. I’ve been using a set from Eco Tools that consists of five brushes made to achieve a fresh and flawless complexion. The brushes come packaged in a cute little box, they would be perfect for a gift and even better for travel. As i mentioned you get five brushes in the set: Flat concealer brush Buffing concealer brush Precision…
