A Little Bit of Zen

Mabel and Co

I don't know about you, but I am always in need of a little bit of Zen in my life and I had the perfect pack arrive on my doorstep last week that reminded me that I need a little bit of Zen. So let me introduce you to Mabel & Co.

Herbs & Heart Face Mud

Herbs & Heart Face Mud

Cleanser, mask, exfoliator? Everything in one? I was very intrigued when the Face Mud* arrived on my doorstep. A very different, but interesting product, like nothing I have ever tried before. 

The Foundation Files: The Ordinary Serum Foundation

The Ordinary Serum Foundation

A while ago I tried out the The Ordinary Coverage Foundation and in all honesty I absolutely hated it. It didn't sit on my skin right and sat in all my dry patches. I just couldn't get it to work for me. But here we are and I am trying another The Ordinary foundation....let's see how it goes.

What blogging has taught me

So if you missed it over on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or even read my newsletter you'll know that TLOL is turning 2! Naturally, it's time to celebrate!

Bright and Glowing Skin | Juva Skincare

Bright and glowy skin is the goal at the moment. We all want our skin to look bright and healthy. That lit within glow, without all the effort. Once upon a time it was only something you could get by visiting a salon and having a facial. Now there are so many at home products that claim to give you exactly that - bright and glowing skin. 

The Foundation Files: NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

There are a lot of exciting new foundation releases happening at the moment. One that I was particularly excited about was the new NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. I couldn't resist grabbing it when it came out the other week, so naturally
it only seemed right to share my thoughts with you.

Summer Arbonne Essentials

I've spoken about Arbonne on the blog a few times and the love affair with the brand is continuing. I know we are in the last month of summer, but I wanted to talk about some of the products that have been essentials (and new favourites) for me this summer.

Last Minute Valentine's Day?

Hey, did you know that Valentine's Day is in two days? it's on Wednesday. Did you forget too? Oops... Don't stress, I got your back with some last minute Valentine's Gifts courtesy of Lush.

The Foundation Files: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick

Welcome back to another Foundation Files! It's been a couple of weeks since my last one, but I am back with another, very different foundation to review for you!  

Give the Gift of Protection : OtterBox

Come on now, get your head out of the gutter. Not THAT kind of protection. I am talking about phone protection. If you are looking for something different to chocolates and flowers for Valentine's Day, let me give you another option.

What I've Been Reading

I wouldn't be keeping up with my New Years Resolution of reading more if I didn't share what books I've been loving on my blog! So if you're curious about what books I enjoyed reading in January, then keep on reading...

Face Mask Directory

After dubbing myself the Face Mask Queen and starting my weekly series on Instagram (#FaceMaskFriday - share your masks, I want to see them!) I have had a number of people asking about masks for specific skincare needs so I decided I'd do a bit of a 'directory' post.
