Despite getting “quite into” beauty in the last couple of years, and owning so many different creams, serums and lotions for my face and body, I was still pretty rubbish when it came to looking after my nails. I used to have acrylics for a few years but stopped when I couldn’t afford it anymore. Now I can afford it, I really don’t want to ruin my nails again as it took a good couple of years for them to regain their strength!
I hate buying foundation. Absolutely hate it. (Almost more than I hate buying jeans!) I either buy the wrong shade or tone or the wrong coverage and I’m left feeling frustrated.
A couple of months ago, I reached out to my Twitter followers to ask which foundation they’d recommend. Two foundations scored really highly; the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer in One and the Rainforest of the Sea Foundation from Tarte.
We all have our stubborn little areas that refuse to tone up no matter how much (or little) exercise we do. (Although on saying that, my tummy is finally starting to tone up now! Yay!!)
Back in November I wrote my first post about trying out some of the products from all the blogger goody bags I got last year! I figured it was a good way to actually remember to try all the lovely things I’d been given, rather than just keeping them in drawers out of the way!
Well since the first post, I’ve been rooting through my chests of drawers (Yes, chests. Plural. I have two chests of drawers full of products!) to find more products to try out. And I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been using for the last couple of months.
I’ve been meaning to tell you about this amazing product for ages but it’s never quite been the right time to bring up in conversation 😛 But as I started up pole fitness again yesterday after two weeks off (and yes, that is relevant), I thought that was the perfect opportunity to tell you about Bush Oil*!
I recently wrote a post about my current skincare regime; which are products I use every day and love. But there are some other products that I’ve also been using regularly that I love just as much and serve as equally important a purpose.
I’m talking about products for banishing blackheads. Big, stupid, ruin your face blackheads.
A couple of months ago, I was offered the chance to try out some of the Bravura Skincare range and I couldn’t believe it when all this came through the door!
Even before using the products, I was really impressed with how they looked. I love the beautifully coloured glass bottles and the gold writing on the front with rose gold lids ♥
We’re one day away from December. This is not a drill. Party season is pretty much here; those awkward office parties where someone snogs Tim from accounts, the New Year’s Eve parties that are exactly the same every year but you go anyway in the hopes that this year will be different and you won’t end up in the kebab shop where all the staff know your name and you only seem to be wearing one shoe.
Wherever you’re going this festive season, my five must-have party products will get you looking and feeling your best. Even if it does rain and Sandra from HR throws up in the new expensive bag you got for Christmas.
Since I started going to blog meets and events at the beginning of this year, I’ve accumulated about 6 drawers full of goodies! I always mean to get around to trying everything, but life and being
forgetful lazy gets in the way. So I thought if I made blog posts out of it, I’d probably actually make an effort to try out some of the bits and let you know what they’re like!
This Sleek palette post has been sitting in my drafts for absolutely ages, mostly because I wanted to take some photos which would do absolute justice to it but I wasn’t happy with any of the photos I took; they just didn’t look right. Does anyone else ever have that problem?
