Getting Your Red on With Bourjois Paris Rouge Velvet

Happy Christmas Eve! I can't believe it's here already. The years seem to fly by. With Christmas there are really only 4 colours in my book: green, red, gold and silver. I love that warm glow the Christmas tree is giving and the cosy evening spent with family and loved ones. But this year I didn't want that to get in the way of putting out a blog post so here we go, one more before Christmas really kicks off tomorrow. To get you even further into that Christmas mood, this post is all about red. And what's better than a good red lippie? Well I say that, but apart from ballet performances when I was younger where I was forced to wear red lipstick, I am only just starting to get used to pulling out the red every once in a while. To get me going, Influenster sent me three gorgeous Bourjois Paris lipsticks to review.

REVIEW: CND Vinylux Weekly Polish and Top Coat


I can't believe it's only a couple of days until Christmas, and to be very honest I have been a terrible blogger as I haven't posted once so far this month! Time to change that! This post is all about that part of beauty I often forget to write about: nail polish. I have been testing the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish* with the Weekly Top Coat, a chip resistant nail polish that is meant to last 7 days on average. At least, that what it says on the label. How did it really perform? Does it live up to the expectations?

Top 10 Must-Have Items On Your John Lewis Christmas Wishlist

Like so many people, I love preparing for Christmas around this time of year, and what better way to do this than with a good Christmas wishlist?! This year I decided to devote my wishlist to John Lewis and the invitation to the Brum Bloggers John Lewis Christmas Event a few weeks ago was the perfect way to prepare. John Lewis offer a great variety of amazing gifts but as I can't possibly begin to list all of them, I have selected my top 10 for you! I must note that this list will be more aimed at beauty (I am a beauty blogger after all!) but I have added some other bits to add some variety to the mix.

My Full Face of Technic Cosmetics: Bargain or Not Worth It?

When I browse social media platforms like Instagram I mainly see two things: luxury, high end makeup items such as Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel, Kat Von D and Fenty Beauty, or I see drugstore brands that are very popular such as MUA and Makeup Revolution. Sure, those brands are very much out there and I too love talking about them. But what about the not so well known brands? And how do you find out more about them in this massive world of beauty on the internet? I have been dying to talk to you about bargain brand Technic for a while now so I have decided to dedicate this blog post to it.

Miss Gorgeous London: I Am NOT Lipstick and Roll & Shine Makeup Applicators

Whilst attending the Olympia Beauty Show in London just over a month ago, I got the opportunity to get to know a few new brands and meet their representatives. One of the brands I got to learn more about is Miss Gorgeous London. I met the lovely Vivien who introduced me to the brand and explained that Miss Gorgeous London focuses on providing beauty accessories that make women feel gorgeous.

Get Ready for Christmas with Anthony John Salons Litchfield

About a month or so ago, I was invited by Anthony John Salons to visit their salon for an evening of hair inspiration in preparation for Christmas. The main idea: creating glam hairstyles that can easily be recreated at home. For those who don't know me, I pretty much always wear my hair the same way (up in a bun or ponytail) because my hair is so fine and flat that any volume I manage to add tends to last for all but two seconds. In this blog post I'm sharing some tips on how to make your volume last.

Olympia Beauty Show 2017 and The New Generation Beauty Influencer Awards

On Sunday 01 October I attended the Olympia Beauty Show in London. Olympia Beauty is the UK's largest trade event with over 500 professionals showing off their brands, products and services. It is also a good place to interact with like-minded people and eye up the competition. The event is free to attend when you register for tickets in advance, however it is trade only (with the exception of press tickets).

Luxury vs Drugstore - Fenty Beauty x Technic Cosmetics

Fenty beauty match stix trio flatlay

Probably the biggest hype of the year: the release of Rihanna's makeup line Fenty Beauty. I must admit, when I found out that Fenty Beauty launched at Harvey Nichols on 08 September, I placed an order straight away and for two reasons: because I was curious to find out what all the fuss was about, but also to see if people were buying these products because Rihanna has her name on it or if the makeup is actually worth the money.
