Hydraluron serum is one of my skincare essentials for dehydrated areas of the face, so I got a little bit giddy when I heard that Indeed Labs were introducing a Hydraluron moisture jelly. Bring on the hydration!

Real Techniques are one of my favourite brush brands and I own nearly all of the brushes they make. In particular I like their face brushes and always use a RT brush for my foundation, powder, bronzer and blush. Earlier this year Real Techniques released some retractable travel brushes, so I thought it was about time I added them to my collection.

Yep, you read that right - these are healthy chocolate pancakes! Well, healthier than a traditional chocolate pancake recipe at least! I've been calorie counting for the last six weeks or so ( with varying success and aiming for 1,200 calories a day) to help me reduce what I'm eating and pay closer attention to which foods I choose and how much energy they contain.

At the end of June Dan and I decided to go off on a little city break in search of some new adventures, and we picked Oxford as the city we wanted to explore. I’ve never been to Oxford before (a quick stop at Bicester outlets doesn’t really count!), and did a little research online looking at some blogs, pinterest and a few youtube videos to suss out what we wanted to see and do while we were there.

I love a good OPI polish, if I had unlimited funds and space, I’d be snapping up every release from the many collections they bring out each year. Sadly I have neither in endless quantities, but OPI are considerate souls and with each collection they also release a selection of the colours in miniature sizes – budget and storage friendly!

As a teenager Bioré was a brand which featured quite heavily in my skincare routine – I was obsessed with the pore strips and used them far more than was necessary because I loved seeing what kind of gunk I might be able to extract - attractive! Bioré’s range goes way beyond their famous pore strips of course, and recently I was invited along to see some of their latest product innovations.

Well it's been a while since we've had a giveaway hasn't it? Time to give a little something back to all of the lovely people who support my blog - more on that in a bit. In collaboration with Simple's Kind To City Skin campaign, I'm giving away a goody bag bursting with skincare - enough to re-boot your whole skincare routine!

skinChemists has been around for a few years and is probably best known for their Wrinkle killer snake serum. The aim of the brand is to use scientific know-how to create and develop treatments for common skin issues which really work. Sounds good right? I was sent two of their eye products so that I could give them bit of a road test - the Under eye definer and lash intensive.

As I mentioned last week, this year for the first time, I went to see what all the excitement was about at IMATS London 2014. I really enjoyed every aspect of the day, and would certainly go again in the future - the shopping was brilliant, there was so much to see and experience and although I'm just a makeup lover and not working in the industry at all, I found everything really interesting and fascinating.

We get through an incredible amount of body wash in our house - I blame my boyfriend, who uses excessive amounts of everything - body wash, toothpaste, deodorant, you name it - he's very generous and liberal in his application. I guess I should be thankful that at least he'll always smell fresh! So as he's a bit of a shower gel connoisseur, he was more than happy to help me test out the Foamburst luxurious body wash range from Imperial Leather.
