For weeks before the launch, I was eyeing up The Fat Hippo Durham. The interiors looked fab, in a gorgeous old building in the middle of the gorgeous city. There’s something about Durham that is just so beautiful, whatever the weather. I was invited along to try the Durham restaurant to see how it varies from the Underground – my usual. Besides the food, one of the best things about the Fat Hippo is that you’re able to…

My lashes have always been the part of my beauty routine that I dread doing. It’s tedious, I get mascara everywhere and it generally just goes really wrong. Not to mention it takes ages! I found out about LVL Lashes from Lisa Eldridge’s video (here) when I was looking at types of treatments to get for my lashes. I’ve always wanted to get semi-permanent lashes glued on but I’ve always been too scared.. (I know,…

Hi everyone! Hope you’re all well. I popped into Primark recently to look at the Gabriella (VelvetGh0st) stationary range, she’s a vlogger with incredible taste – especially colour scheme wise. As soon as I seen that it was gold and pastel hues, I knew I had to have it all. I thought I’d pop up a quick post to show you what I managed to pick up. My Primark didn’t have the full range and I…

  The palette that swept the Instagram beauty world away… As soon as I first laid eyes on this palette, I was in love. I never intended on getting it until I went into Cocktail Cosmetics and I seen it physically. I can usually avoid the hype products until I can hold them in my hands, then I can never let them go. It’s easier to exit a website than it is to walk away…

Oh liquid lipsticks, how I love them. If you read my post on the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte review, you will see that they have changed the way I think about the traditional lipstick. As I am writing this, I have four tabs open on my browser – (not so) patiently waiting for the current Jeffree Star restock on Cocktail Cosmetics of Rose Matters, Celebrity Skin and Mannequin. That may give you a little hint as to…

I own a fair few pairs of sunglasses now, but most of them I bought on eBay for 99p – which means they’re not really the best of quality and have little, to no protection on the eyes. Little protection isn’t usually a big deal for me as I live in the North East of England and whenever we get sun, it lasts for about five minutes. As soon as Jules B contacted me and…

For over a year now I’ve used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade and I swore I would never use anything else. It was almost perfect. I could get carved out brows, a colour that matched me and it was long lasting and smudge free. If you’re a glasses wearer, eyebrow smudging is a real issue. I used the Sleek eyebrow wax palette, and my glasses would smudge it half way up my forehead. Not…

I’ve abandoned buying the usual bullet lipsticks, truly given up. I’ve tried almost everything and NOTHING stays on my lips. Ever. No matter what I try or how much I spend, which annoys me to no end. I love Mac lipsticks and I find their colour choice insane, but their mattes are drying on me and incredibly smudgy. The whole liquid lipstick craze has been around for a few years now, but until recently the…

Hi everyone! I thought I’d share with you what I got in my Scoff Club Box, which I was so kindly sent to review. Its a monthly subscription box of retro and classic sweeties. I couldn’t pass up on this opportunity to try the box as I am a self confessed sugar addict. The concept is so fun and I think it would make an amazing gift for people of all ages (or something to…

You’d never really think of mixing nail polish with superfoods, would you? Well Nails Inc. did and they’re onto a winner. The new products are all about creating stronger, healthier nails using detoxifying treatment formulas. Nails Inc. invited me to an event in Fenwick, Newcastle. I’d never used anything from the brand before and due to previously working in an environment where I wasn’t allowed anything on my nails, I’d never even had my nails done…

I’m trying to convince myself it’s Spring, but we’re at the end of January and it’s still very much freezing. Christmas is over and so is New Year and really, we don’t have that much to look forward to other than the summer. A nice warm drink always gets me through the cold days and I look forward to having something that will warm me throughout. I like hot chocolate, but I hate the horrible…
