Vanilla Brulee

SAM_2559Just a quick post today to share this little bottle of delight with you, Vanilla Brulee home fragrance oil.

I purchased this at a recent Body Shop party and oh my word I just have to share this with you, the smell is out of this world amazing,  (I think so) such a tiny little bottle can bring so much happiness.  Have to say it was the Brulee bit that grabbed my attention.

These are just £4 and as you only use a tiny drop it will last ages, by far one of my best finds for October

Liz Earle skincare

NN1001-0-largeI have my friend to thank for introducing me to this fab product, word of mouth really is the best recommendation you can have. This Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser is by far my best purchase this year.20140926_17581220140926_180335I used just one measured pump which was plenty for me to massage all around my face,  this has such an amazing fresh smell, and full of natural ingredients including Rosemary, Cocoa butter, Chamomile, and Eucalyptus essential oils.  It felt really light and gentle, quite refreshing and an absolute pleasure to use.20140926_180245With this cleanser you get a little muslin cloth, after gently rubbing the cleanser around your face you rinse the cloth in hot water (hand hot) and use the cloth to wipe away the cleanser, after this splash your face with cool water and hey presto. It removed all my make up with no effort at all, even waterproof mascara.

I’m 2 weeks into using this now and totally in love with how fresh and clean my skin feels, I will definitely be buying more of this. I had the 100ml pump starter kit which includes a cloth for £14.75.

20140827_074938The internet is inundated at the moment with blogs and post about Make-up Revolution and I can absolutely see why after purchasing one to see for myself if they really are as good as everyone is making out. I purchased the Iconic 1 pallet (Naked 1 dupe).20140827_075101Well I am highly impressed, the packaging is basic and there is no mirror but at £4 instead of a £37 urban decay palette I can more than live with that.

20140827_075122In terms of the actual colours, they are fantastic, the pigments are second to none, lovely to work with and last all day. I have had a good play around with all the colours now and created some fab effects, although I’m not very good at taking pics of myself ha ha. In terms of quality of the actual shadows my view is you will struggle to see a difference between the high end pallet and these.20140827_075114Now I’ve tried it and seen for myself how fab these are I will be making lots more purchases. Virtually everything on the Makeup Revolutions website is now on my wishlist and all at affordable prices for fab products, I mean with thousands of positive reviews how can you go wrong.


Have you tried any of these products yet,  keen to hear your thoughts, feel free to comment on which you have tried.

Zatchels Back at Bicester

Here we have some fantastic images from the Zatchels Bicester store that opened this weekend, as some of you may know Leicester based Zatchels were in the beach hut at Bicester Village last summer and are over the moon to be back.

Just think all this was done in just 24 hours, I think you will agree it looks absolutely amazing and all the guys worked like troopers.

Hi everyone, I know, I’ve been away for ages, and my blog has been feeling very neglected, so here are some flowers to say thankyou for all staying with me, I went back to work full time at easter that was only intended to be for 6 weeks to manage a project and here we are mid august, busier than ever, let me tell you juggling childcare over school holidays along with keeping house has been a challenge itself as all you mums will know. I cant wait for the schools to open up and get some kind of routine back, not normality just routine lol. For me its my boys last year at primary school (snif). I have months worth of posts to edit and publish so keep checking back to see what I’m up to
