fillume volumising serum review and my trick for a line-free face effect!


Recently I talked about the new fillume volumising moisturier from indeed labs - fillume volumising moisturier review - and now I have the perfect partner to pair with it - the fillume volumising serum.  Used together they should boost the plumping results you'd see with the moisturiser alone.  I've also found a little trick to using these which gives me a temporary almost line-free face for special occasions!

The new polish for tans collection from Models Own - review and swatches


Last spring Models Own launched their polish for tans collection of super bright shades to compliment sunkissed skin and I swatched a few of them here - Models Own polish for tans swatches.  This year they've updated that collection with five popping new shades, and they're super hot.

Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette review and swatches - neutral shadows FTW!


As a neutral eye colour lover, this palette just about sums up my nude shadow dreams and rolls them into a happy, beigy-taupey-brown ball.  Heart-eyed emojis times ten.  If the shades look a little familiar, it might be because this lush almost-all-matte palette from Makeup Revolution has likely been inspired by the Naked Basics (1 and 2) palettes from Urban Decay.  Having owned both of those palettes for ages, and considering my original Naked Basics is totally battered due to being one of my most used, I'm pretty well placed to tell you how the Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette measures up.

Starting a Jo Malone fragrance collection - Nectarine Blossom & Honey and Blackberry & Bay review


Recently a sudden urge came over me to start a Jo Malone perfume collection.  Usually I'm a Marc Jacobs Daisy kind of girl - and I still absolutely love those and have all the limited editions - but there's something about the grown-up luxury of Jo Malone that's really drawn me in.  I've owned some of their amazing candles before, but never the perfumes until now.  I've decided to go for the 30ml perfume spray sizes, so that I can get a good mixture of different scents, and I've started myself off with two quite different fragrances.

Veet Spawax Stripless Wax Warming Kit review and step-by-step how to guide - fuss-free home waxing with no strips!


Spring has sprung and my furry winter legs can no longer hide away under layers of tights, boots and trousers, so it's time for some de-fuzzing!  I was recently given the Veet Spawax Stripless Wax Warming Kit to try at home, and it's been an incredibly easy way to wax without mess or fuss, so I thought I'd take you through step by step how to use it.  The beauty of this kit is that there are no strips - the wax becomes the strip when it cools and hardens on your skin, and you just whip it off - how amazing is that?

Liz Earle Limited Edition Cleanse & Polish trio gift tin


Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish is probably my most re-purchased skincare product.  I've used it on and off for years, and it's the cleanser I always come back to no matter what else I try.  As a big Cleanse & Polish devotee, I'm all over this limited edition Cleanse & Polish trio set, which has launched to celebrate 20 years of Liz Earle skincare.  My Mum loves Liz Earle products too and uses loads from the range, and she was the first to spot this, and she messaged me a photo asking if I wanted it for my birthday, which of course I did!

Three sweet spring fragrances - 007 for women, Daisy Eau So Fresh Sorbet and Thomas Sabo Charm Rose Beach


I love to shake everything up when it comes to spring - clothes, makeup, my diet, my home, nothing's off limits when that whole spring clean, fresh start feeling kicks in, so it's no surprise that I'm also changing up my fragrance rotation.  Here I have three new fragrances that have me smelling sweet and fresh for the new season.

Co Lab extreme volume dry shampoo - better than the original?


I've mentioned before that I'm no fan of dry shampoos and generally don't get on with them, but the Co Lab dry shampoo by Ruth Crilly is the best I've tried and the closest I can get to that clean hair feeling.  So with that in mind, I thought I'd try out the new extreme volume version which has recently launched, to see how it compares.

Easy, no-bake milk and white chocolate Malteser cheesecake recipe


You can never have too much cake on a blog in my opinion, and lately mine has shown far too little love to all things sweet and naughty.  I really love baking, so blogging about baking needs to become much more of a thing!  I've recently found love for coffee and walnut cake, so expect to see that very soon once I've decided on which is the best recipe, but today, we're talking cheesecake - chocolatey, creamy, amazing, malteser cheesecake.  With no baking required, this chocoholic's dream is dangerously easy to whip up...

The Makeup Revolution Naked Underneath Palette review and swatches - don't be put off by the faux fur....!


I've been seriously slacking on the blogging front haven't I?  Sadly work has taken over all of my time lately, so I'm so grateful for the long Easter weekend to get things back on track!  What better to kick things off again with than another palette from the beauty wizards at Makeup Revolution - this is the   Makeup Naked Underneath palette.  It's a great combination palette of matte and shimmer shades that range from safe and neutral to the slightly more exciting with a dusky navy and cranberry red shade thrown in for good measure.
