KIKO Haul

Makeup stores dedicated to one brand were obviously going to be a hit, but why have they only just started appearing now. KIKO have definitely got the right idea; every product they sell, in every shade they have, in one shop. We don’t always want the items chosen for the likes of Boots or Superdrug so this way we can chose exactly what we want.  I could have honestly spent hours in the KIKO store,…

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review and Swatches

Okay people, I am in love. I repeat, Beth is in love! I have been searching high and low for a lip product which ticks all the boxes and I think NYX have managed to do that.  The boxes to tick to create my perfect lip product are: long lasting, moisturising/non drying, easy to apply, doesn’t cling to dry patches and isn’t incredibly thick. So that might seem like a long list but if NYX…

Clinique Freebie With Glamour Magazine

Before I start can we just take a minute to appreciate the beauty of Mrs Tanya Chapman, how stunning does she look!?   Now, I’d be surprised, but if you hadn’t seen, this months free gift in Glamour is a choice of 4 different Clinique products. Two mini Lip Pops, in Beige Pop and Cherry Pop, their High Impact Mascara and Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion. The mini lipsticks were the most difficult to track down,…

Favourite Free Blog Templates

I haven’t really posted many blogging help/advice posts but I’ve decided that I would like to start them. I’ve been blogging for a while now and changed my blog umpteen times so I have some knowledge that might be useful. For my first Blogging 101 post I thought I would share a few of my favourite free templates. I know when you are starting your blog the blogger generic templates just don’t cut it after…

24 Days of Blogmas Post Ideas

I love Christmas. There I said it. Now last year I took part in Blogmas; posting every day in December and this year I have decided to do something similar. Last year I did find that 31 posts was a little difficult even stressful at times, so this year I have decided to post for 24 days instead: 24 Days of Blogmas.  I understand that coming up with 24 wintery/Christmassy posts is not the easiest…

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Haul

Isn’t it great when you walk into a shop, see a limited edition collection (that you had heard nothing about) and it’s on sale? I think so, and that is exactly what happened to me when I went into The Body Shop a couple of weeks ago. I had generally heard nothing whatsoever about the Vineyard Peach range, and I love the smell of peach, so when I walked in and saw this duo for £3.00…

StyLondon Gel Nail Wraps Review and Tutorial

I am awful when it comes to my nails and nail varnish; it gets picked off or I just don’t paint them at all and they suffer. They break easily, don’t grow and just are not nice to look at, so I hunted for some way to help me fall back into love with my nails. Nail wraps were the obvious solution and after trying some from StyLondon before I thought I would get some…

Essence Liquid Lipsticks Review

A few weeks ago I was browsing through my Bloglovin’ when I saw that Essence had launched their own liquid lipsticks. Now I’m not usually one to go for a liquid lipstick as they seem quite gimmicky and are so close to a thick lip gloss so I don’t bother. However, the Essence offering is only £2.50 so was worth the risk and I’m happy to say I was pleasantly surprised!  Now the two shades…
