Longest Serving Beauty Products

Wednesday, 10 February 2016


As much as I like trying out new products, there are a select few that I repurchase again and again.  Here's some of those products that I've been using and repurchasing for a long time now.

3 Picks: Perfumes

Tuesday, 9 February 2016



1) Jo Malone - Pomegranate Noir


Last year I wanted to treat myself to a special perfume that I could use for my hen do, wedding, and honeymoon.  I liked the idea of having a scent that would remind me of those moments and settled on picking a Jo Malone fragrance for the job.  I'd never even smelled a Jo Malone perfume before but for some reason I had it in my head that it would be a nice fancy treat.  Whilst in the airport flying back from London one day last summer I spent a looooong time in duty free smelling every Jo Malone perfume they had.  Pomegranate Noir stood out for me - it's a dark musky fruity scent with notes of pomegranate (duh), raspberry and plum.  Now I wear it several times a week but it still hols those lovely wedding memories, just like I hoped!

Benefit Rollerlash Mascara

Monday, 8 February 2016

I've spoken previously about my never-ending search for the perfect mascara (here, here, and here).  It's one of those products where I flit between brands and am always willing to try something new.  I did previously claim to have found "the one" (Clinique High Impact), buuuut that love affair is well and truly over and there's someone new on the scene.  Step forward, Benefit Roller Lash.

My Evening Skincare Routine

Sunday, 7 February 2016


Following on from My Morning Routine post, today I'm sharing my evening skincare routine.  Depending on how tired I am / how lazy I feel, my evening skincare routine can range from me simply washing off my makeup and going straight to bed, to a full routine like the one below.  I do try to do the full routine every night as I know my skin looks better when I stick to it, but you know how it is, sometimes I just can't be arsed!
