OFFICE ROOM TOUR

OFFICE ROOM TOUR

There’s something about a well-organised desk or office space that excites that little part of my brain labelled ‘productivity’. I’m a fan of organisation, tidiness and, well, things looking nice, but for so long I have been bundled into the front room of the house, which […]

NEW BEAUTY ROOM TOUR

NEW BEAUTY ROOM TOUR

The first room that was on our ‘to renovate’ list was my beauty room. Originally I was using what was supposed to be a living room; it was painted magnolia and we had shoved an assortment of furniture into there to try and create a […]

THE BEST OF REVOLUTION BEAUTY

THE BEST OF REVOLUTION BEAUTY

It’s no surprise to anyone that I love Revolution Beauty brands – Revolution, Revolution Pro, I Heart Revolution and Obsession. I am asked ‘what’s worth getting?’ on an almost daily basis. At the moment of writing, until they bring out more products, I literally have everything […]

JUNE EDIT / 2018

JUNE EDIT / 2018

ESSENCE MAKEUP – WHAT’S WORTH BUYING?

ESSENCE MAKEUP – WHAT’S WORTH BUYING?

Essence is a popular brand across Europe and America, but hasn’t quite made it in the UK just yet. Despite being readily available in Wilko, not many people seem to have heard of it, or if they have, they assume it’s Wilko’s own brand and therefore probably […]

SOPH X REVOLUTION: EXTRA SPICE PALETTE & LIPSTICKS

SOPH X REVOLUTION: EXTRA SPICE PALETTE & LIPSTICKS

In a move that surprised, well, no one, Soph from the youtube channel sophdoesnails has released her second collaboration with Revolution. Last time we were treated to an eyeshadow palette and a highlighter palette; this time there’s another eyeshadow palette and three nude lipsticks of […]

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX / JUNE 2018

Let’s say hello to the new June LFBeautyBox! This month’s theme is Into The Blue, focusing on hydration and illumination in preparation for the dryer, warmer weather. It’s definitely a good theme – my skin has been getting drier and drier! If you’re new to […]
