As someone with sensitive (and sometimes oily) skin, the quest to find the perfect cleaner that will both remove your make up and respect your skin is never ending. Especially as season’s change, situations change, and also depending on your mood and diet you would also have to factor in spots and pimples!   After […]

As I am on the  hunt for a mushroomy-browny-greyish kind of colour eyeshadow, I found this little gem in Boots. As most of you may well know, Dainty Doll is a make-up brand created by Girls Aloud singer, Nicola Roberts for pale skinned girls such as herself. I am quite pale so I thought this […]

  Now these are what I’d call “wearable” nail art! This is just to show my appreciation for this beauty trend, continuing from the last post, also about 3D Japanese Nail Art. The first image would be perfect for a special occassion, whilst the red maple has a slightly more relaxed feel about it. So […]

Nail art; what comes to mind when you think about these two words? It’s no longer just about fancy, intricate patterns being painted onto your talons, although if you went to a professional nail salon then that’s proabably what  you’d get. However if you wanted to be a little more adventurous to stand out from […]

Categories: Beauty | Comments Off on Bioderma: Pink Cleanser

  I bought this cleanser because I thought that the green one was working just a little too well, effectively drying out my skin and making it feel dry after using it for a while. I know I have sensitive skin, but it also gets oily on the T-Zone areas, so it’s quite a pain. […]

GlossyBox vs Graze… I bet you’re wondering what the hell I’m on about! If you’re a health freak like moi (eating healthily, with the odd indulgence but generally eating a little of everything in moderation) then you might have heard of Graze. You can either claim your free first box of tasty treats and nibbles […]

Recently I’ve been thinking about the state of my skin. It’s not bad, quite good actually with just the occasionally spot and sometimes it’s a little shiny. But I thought about what I was using cleansing my skin to remove the day’s make-up and dirt. I’ve been using Simple face wipes purely for the convenience […]

Whilst I was doing some research into what the makeup trends will be for this year, I found some really creative false eyelash designs, and a rising interest in the novel idea of having feather eyelashes. But then i came across something really interesting but also a little weird; LED eyelashes! A woman called Soomi […]

While I was looking at what the new make-up trends are for S/S 2011, I found these! This is a new trend that I’ve caught wind of! Never mind using ordinary false eyelashes, or even fancy ones; why bother blending in when you can use feather eyelashes and really make a statement? Shu Uemura Wearing […]

I was eating out with some friends and the desserts we’d ordered had arrived. Everything looked delicious and most agreed that the humble chocolate brownie (pictured. This is also my own photo) was probably the best (although it did have stiff competition from a walnut tart, hazelnut ice cream, lemon pie and chocolate coffee slice). […]
