Review: Mac Rebel Lipstick

A couple of weeks ago, I won Little Bit Soph‘s 500 follower giveaway, and am now the proud owner of MAC Rebel lipstick! I’ve never owned anything from MAC before, so I was really excited to choose one of their lipsticks. As a die-hard bold pink lip lover, it had to be Rebel, which looks terrifyingly purple in the bullet, but is actually a really pretty raspberry pink. Read on for many, many attempts at taking pictures of my own face… Continue reading

Review: The Body Shop Shea Body Whip*

Now, you know I’m not usually one for body lotions, so when a mere lotion can impress me, it’s gonna be a good one! I wouldn’t normally have picked up the Body Shop Shea Body Whip, so I’m glad I got a chance to try it thanks to my fabulous #Oxmeet goody bag! Continue reading

New A England Polishes and Sleeping Palace Swatch!

It’s my birthday soon, and to take advantage of the recent A England sale, my mum gave me an early birthday present – new nail polishes from my favourite brand!

I picked out Lady of the Lake, which I’ve had before and used up, Briar Rose, Sleeping Palace, Fated Prince, and Dancing with Nureyev. All of these polishes are truly stunning, and it was so difficult choosing which one to apply first! Today I’ll be showing you Sleeping Palace, then later on, I’ll post about the others – this way, I can keep them all on my fingers as long as I like!

Review: Treacle Moon Warm Cinnamon Nights Bath and Shower Gel

So, I recently finished my big bottle of Lush Rose Jam shower gel (sniff) and I was on the look out for something equally sumptuous to replace it. I’ve often seen Treacle Moon products, but never this Warm Cinnamon Nights shower gel, which I just couldn’t resist. You’ve heard about my love of rose scents, but there’s just something about cinnamon and other spicy Christmassy scents that I adore even more! (Yes, I know it’s spring, but I don’t care!)

What’s In My Bag?

This is my bag. I love it so much! It’s a pink Radley Aldgate, and it was a present from my parents for my 21st birthday. I’m extremely picky about handbags, so when I decided I needed to get a ‘grown-up’ handbag, I fell pretty hard for this one. I love that it’s got three sections (two zipped and one open), and plenty of pockets, that it’s big enough to put my laptop in, and that it’s got long enough handles to go over my shoulder. I can’t believe I’ve never put it on the blog before! Anyway, read on to see what I carry around with me every day!

The Battle Of: The Beauty Boxes!

P1060028

So, I’ve never had a beauty subscription box before, although I’m sure I must be the only blogger not to get the thunk of goodies through the door every month! Luckily for me, the gorgeous people at Birchbox and Glossybox popped their March boxes into the #Oxmeet goody bags, and I got my first taste of the high-end sample world! I’ve decided to battle them out to see which one made its way into my heart (and maybe my budget)… A warning, this is a very long post! Continue reading
