Maybelline Dream Cushion liquid foundation review

I was given this foundation by a beauty blogger friend of mine and I was pretty grateful I have to say - only the day before I had scraped the very last of my Maybelline FitMe from the bottle and hadn't had a chance to pop down to my local Warehouse and splash out the … Continue reading Maybelline Dream Cushion liquid foundation review

Goodness Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil review

Recently I was gifted a bottle of the beauty-award-winning  certified organic chia seed oil from the Goodness Natural Beauty Lab, and my goodness ... it's fab!

Three (more) things I’d buy a million times over, and one I wouldn’t bother with again

Back in February last year, I wrote this post about three things I'd buy a million times over, and two I wouldn't bother with again.  So, back then I was thinking about some of the products I've purchased as a result of online "hype" and whether or not that "hype" was actually justified in the product itself.   … Continue reading Three (more) things I’d buy a million times over, and one I wouldn’t bother with again

It’s a beautiful thing …

Firstly let's start by mentioning that I am a HUGE Dita Von Teese fan - no surprise there!  The reason I mention this, is that I read her new book over the Christmas holidays (Your Beauty Mark - read it, you'll love it!) - in it she advocates having a gorgeous compact to make you … Continue reading It’s a beautiful thing …

Serioxyl review

So back at the very beginning of October my friend, who is a beauty blogger,  gave me this three-part hair densifying system called Serioxyl to try.  And try it I did! Now I must admit, I've been a bit naughty and haven't followed the instructions 100% but I am confident in saying that after at least two … Continue reading Serioxyl review
