As I mentioned in my Morning Skincare Update blog, I have been trying different products recently and have made some changes to my routine that I thought I would share my opinion on. This is my current evening routine: Step 1 will depend on whether or not I have been wearing makeup or SPF......as most days I … Continue reading Nighttime skincare routine – updated
Recently I have started trying other skin care products, not to replace my routine, but to add to it. Since I last wrote a blog about my skincare, I have added a couple of products to help my skin through the winter, which is something I haven't done in the past. As I have oily/combination … Continue reading Morning Skincare Update

So, I thought I would trial the Luxe dry oil that … Continue reading #MAKEUPMUSTHAVESCHALLENGE DAY 12

The challenge doesn't specify 'Favourite' so I'm taking that as a free-for-all to talk about all of my palettes 🙂 Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette These powders from Hourglass are amazing. If you … Continue reading #MAKEUPMUSTHAVESCHALLENGE Day 3
I have to admit, I don't tend to go shopping on 'Black Friday' because as has been seen before, people are literally fighting over the discounted TVs and other goods that have been reduced in essentially what is an American event! I'm in the UK! Scrolling through Facebook however, I noticed an advert by Estee … Continue reading My Estee Lauder Bargain!
