Hair: Tony & Guy Extreme Volume Rollers. Let's get bouncy.

Well blow me down, two hair posts in as many weeks?! I'm not known for my hair skills, so I shy away from hair related blogging most of the time, but when I come across tools which make the whole experience a whole lot easier, it's time to share. Heck, someone might even mistake me for knowing what I'm doing!  Cue the awkward hair selfies...

Skincare: Trying something new - One Love Organics.

Today I'm taking about a new skincare brand I've been given the opportunity to try out.  It's called One Love Organics, and first things first, how cute is the packaging?  I love how it mixes old fashioned apothecary style brown glass jars with really modern, pretty labelling.  These give my bathroom extra cool points.

Beauty: New from KIKO - the Daring Game collection - review and swatches

I've become quite the KIKO fan in recent months, and I love that they often release special limited edition, themed collections.  The latest is the Daring Game collection, and I think it's one of their best yet.  Daring Game is inspired by Bond girls, so there's a lot of casino theming going on.  It immediately puts me in mind of Vegas and makes me wish I was going back this year!

Guest bloggers wanted for September!

Just a quick post to let you know that in just over two weeks I'll be sunning myself on that very beach there in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, I can't wait!

Beauty: The Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette - review, swatches and three eye looks!

I'm such a huge fan of Too Faced, especially their eye palettes.  I really must do a collection post at some point.  It's great that it's so much easier to get hold of Too Faced in the UK now - it always used to be top of my hit list whenever I went to the US.  I got into the habit of collecting all of Too Faced's mini look palettes, like The Smoky eyes palette, The Boudoir eyes palette etc.  The latest palette from Too Faced - The Chocolate Bar - is a bit different - it's bigger than the others, and it contains even more lovely colours.

Hair: My current hair product favourites and a new hair dryer

I'll be sharing my July favourites later this week, but as I had so many this month I've separated out my hair favourites for their own post.  I'm no hair expert by any stretch, and because of that I don't do a lot of hair related features, so I thought it was about time I did a little update on what's currently happening atop my head.

Beauty: Tarte blushes have finally arrived in the UK!

Today I'm talking about something I've loved for ages, but haven't really featured in much detail here before.  It's the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blushes - these used to be so hard to get in the UK that it seemed silly to bang on about them on my blog.  But... now that they're available to us via both Sephora and QVC, I thought it was time to chat Amazonian Clay...

Skincare: New from The Body Shop - the delicious Body Sorbets!

It's not often that I actually count down the days to a new product lunch hitting stores, but with the Body Shop body sorbets, I literally couldn't wait to get my hands on them.  I first saw them on a youtube video a couple of months ago and wondered why I couldn't find them in store or online, and I got a bit sulky when I realised it was because they'd not been released!  Well now they have, and I finally got to scratch that itch by grabbing the whole collection...

Nails: Models Own Sweet Shop scented nail polishes - review and swatches

I love an exciting new Models Own launch, and this one is particularly sweet!  Following on from their range of fruit scented polishes, Models Own have now released five sweet shop favourites with co-ordinating colours and fragrances - yum!

Beauty: The Clarins 10 minute makeover

Sometimes it's really lovely to do a whole face with products all from the same brand.  It's not something I often do as I'm always trying out new products, but it makes sense to use a set of products all designed to work well together.  Clarins have given me the opportunity to do exactly that with a mix of some of their hero products and some newer releases.

Beauty: Superdrug B. skincare 7 day beauty swap

Superdrug invited me to take part in a brilliant skincare challenge - for 7 days I would solely use products from the B. range (B. is for beautiful) - to be fair it wasn't a tough challenge as the range includes all of the skincare necessities!  During the challenge I think I paid much more attention to my morning and evening routine than I usually would, so my skin has been rather pampered!
