Kiko Cosmetics Nail Lacquer: Review and Swatches

Kiko Nail Laquers

On my holiday in Ibiza, between sipping cocktails overlooking the sea and chilling out around the pool, we took a trip into Ibiza Town. The main town itself was beautiful, plenty of restaurants and bars for tapas and beer in the centre and sea views on the outskirts. We didn't expect to wander into the main high street not long before we left and I was drawn across the busy street into Kiko Cosmetics, a brand I'd read about and seen online but has never had the chance to browse or buy in person. Obviously I had to make a few purchases, especially as the prices were so reasonable and these nail lacquers were on sale for just over a Euro!

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Range: Review

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush

I've loved Soap and Glory body and bath products since they first became popular as the perfect Christmas gift. The scent of the original products are strong, sweet and musky which isn't to everyone's taste. Enter Sugar Crush, a sweet lime and vanilla scented range with a more fresh smell than past ranges.

Boho Folk Fashion: Autumn 2015

I'm completely over summer. I had my beach holiday in June and the proper summer weather has briefly been and quickly gone in Costa Del Newcastle, so roll on Autumn. I'm loving the folk inspired fashion that's starting to appear in the shops in anticipation for Autumn with mixed textures like leather, suede and wool alongside warm tone fabrics and interesting patterns. I also think this style is easy to wear from Summer to Autumn to Winter, as shorts can be swapped for jeans, skirts can be worn with chunky tights, sleeveless jackets can be layered over long sleeved tops etc.

New Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker Gloss Sticks 3D Volume Lip Shine: Review and Swatches

I mindlessly wandered into Boots on Wednesday afternoon "just for a look" (we've all done it). I had been awake since 5am so I was in no mood to make sensible decisions. The new mini Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker Gloss Sticks were centre stage on the brand's display and I was reeled in by a buy one get one half price offer and the £3.50 price tag. I'd considered buying the original sized Sexy Motherpucker Gloss Sticks in the past but at £8 I'd been put me off. I already have a lot of lip products so a mini version didn't feel so naughty. As a lip product hoarder, I'm all for brands releasing mini versions! More space in my bag and a better chance of using them up.

Seventeen Falsifeye HD Mascara: Review and Demo

I'm always on the hunt for great mascaras that are budget friendly. Nothing worse than having to replace an expensive mascara every few months! Boot's Seventeen range is always great value and easy to get your hands on, so I picked up their Falsifeye mascara which was on offer at the time for only £4.
