Benefit They're Real Double The Lip - lipsticks with built in lip liner


Benefit have added a new line to the They're Real range, and to my surprise, it's not an eye product!  They're Real Double the Lip is a range of lipsticks with a built in lip liner, all cleverly shaped like a teardrop to make application super easy.

Elemis Skin Solutions Hydrating Facial at Debenhams


After the excesses of Christmas and the general toll winter takes on my skin, my poor little face was in need of some TLC, so it was good timing for Elemis to be launching a new collection of in-store facials!  They're called Skin Solutions facials, and there are five to choose from depending on your skin's needs.

Bringing back the glow with Pixi skintreats



January can be such a grey and gloomy time, Christmas is over, it's cold and we've spent all our money - it's no wonder that even my skin feels glum!  My skin becomes very dry and dull in winter, so I'm always keen to try out anything that might make me look a little more lively, and these gems from Pixi's skincare range are just the trick 💕

Winter knitwear wish list

Last weekend, when the weather was pretty chilly and I was about to get dressed to go out, I realised that I hardly own any jumpers!  I'm not really sure how this has happened, but over time I've just become more and more of a dress wearer, to the point where I hardly have much of a winter casj wardrobe at all.  Generally I don't think jumpers are the most flattering on me, certainly not if they're bulky and have no shape at all to them.  But, I decided to have a look around for some more interesting knitwear that might work well - generally longer styles with a bit of structure or a finer knit seem to be good options.  And somehow, unintentionally, all of my choices are either pink or grey!

If I was a rich girl.... (na-nah na-nah na-nah na-nah na-nah nah)


It's such a reflective time of year right now what with people setting goals, making resolutions and embarking on new challenges such as losing weight, getting fit, saving for a holiday or starting a new hobby.  I'm a real sucker for getting all of those new year new start feelings too.  I've also been indulging myself in the odd daydream of how my life would change if I were a millionaire, maybe it's all that Christmas cheese I ate !

My 2016 beauty favourites


Happy New Year!  I've had a lovely little break over Christmas and hope you did too.  Now I know I rarely do favourites posts, but as we've just started a new year, I felt like looking back on what I'd enjoyed in 2016.  The year that gave us Brexit and Trump at least had a few great new beauty products!
