A Surge of Moisture

I am all about trying to keep my skin look and feel hydrated. If you have been a long time reader, you will know I have skin that is on the dry side and it is something that, at times, I have really struggled with. The Clinique Moisture Surge range is designed exactly for that. Let's chat -

The Book Wrap : 2019 Vol III

It is a little crazy to me, that out of ALL the posts I post on my blog, my bimonthly wrap of books read is my most popular post. You guys clearly love knowing what I read about! Anyway, without further adieu, it's time for another wrap up!

Multipurpose Foundation

It seems like a rather odd statement to make about a foundation - a multipurpose product that doubles as a foundation and a concealer. Essentially removing one step from your make up routine. Mecca has just released a new foundation to their Mecca Max range that does just that.

Healthy, Beautiful Skin

Hey, it's me, back with another foundation review for the fortnight. Today we are talking about a foundation that gives you 'healthy, beautiful skin'. I feel like I am currently reaching for foundations that have beautiful ingredients to care for your skin a the moment. So let's chat about the Intensive Skin Serum Foundation* from Bobbi Brown.

Hit Refresh on your Foundation

I am always on the hunt for 'the one', the foundation that gives us the flawless finish and makes our skin look you know...better? Clinique has just released a new foundation to their Even Better make up range. Think foundation with all the benefits of your favourite skincare range.

Finding the Right Mascara

I hate trying new mascaras. Don't get me wrong, it's exciting, but also....I hate it. I am so picky when it comes to mascaras that trying new ones is just a little scary because who knows if they are going to be any good! But guys I bit the bullet. I did it for you. I tried THREE new mascaras recently. Let's have a chat about them.

Skincare that says 'YES'

I have been using a skincare brand that I have been excited about FOR YEARS for the past few months. Sunday Riley is one of those brands that I have always wanted to try, but never quite had the budget to try. I have dabbled a little bit, trying a couple of products here and there, but there have been so many products I have been dying to try for years.

The 90 Second Facial Treatment

Want a luxurious face mask that gives you revolutionary results in only 90 seconds? Well you're in luck, there is a clever little device on the market that does just that. The Foreo UFO is the newest release to the innovative skincare brand. It's a pricey device, so is it really worth the money?

Salon Nails At Home

I am usually hopeless at taking care of my nails. They are typically bitten to the stumps, sometimes flaking and barely EVER painted. Occasionally, in between basketball seasons, I might save up and treat myself to a nice manicure at The Beautique, but hey, the bank account doesn't always accommodate that.
