Review: Barry M Sequin Nail Effects in Pink

When it comes to my nails, I like it bright and quirky, so when I saw the launch of Barry M Sequin Nail Effects, I was dying to try it out.

Summer Edit: Handbags!

Strictly speaking, this is a beauty blog. However, it should
be no surprise by now that I am almost as obsessed with handbags as
I am with beauty me, that is not easy (especially on
my bank balance). I have quite a large collection of
handbags, many of which are super bright and summery. Here are
my pick of the best for summer handbags. Be warned: I don't do
boring bags!

Pamper Sunday: Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Facial Oil

So it's Pamper Sunday again (after a long hiatus since I started
exams - sorry!) and it is definitely
the perfect day to use Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Facial Oil to
replenish the skin after Saturday night...

Review: BelláPierre Super Gloss in Raspberry

I received a BelláPierre lipgloss in a beauty box recently,
but had no expectations because I am very specific about
lipgloss - it has to be non-sticky, non-shimmery, and not too
"Barbie", if that makes sense. However, my reservations were completely
unfounded, and I do believe I've actually found a Holy Grail product!

my blog on various websites. I also want to thank
you guys for your support, and let you know that I appreciate

What's in my "Essentials" Bag?

Since my original What's in my Handbag post (here), I
have had a little change around with what I carry in my bag after I
found it too messy and disorganised. When I saw this cute bag (which
is supposed to be used as a pencil case) from Paperchase, I knew
it was perfect to hold all my bits and bobs without messing
up the inside of my bags, and enabling me to use a different handbag every
day by just popping this little "essentials" bag inside!

Review: Garnier Moisture Match Lotion for Normal Skin

I actually have combination skin, but as I am getting
older, I have noticed my skin becoming a little more "normal", so
when searching for a new oil-free moisturiser with sun protection for
the summer, I decided to opt for the new Garnier Moisture Match Illuminating
Light Lotion for Normal Skin with SPF20.

Review: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Backstage

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of a matte berry lip,
so when I was sent a new Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick
in the shade Backstage I was excited to try it out.

Selfridges Summer Beauty Box

When the Selfridges Limited Edition Summer
Beauty Box came on sale I simply could not resist getting my hands on one.
This box has everything you could possibly need to
kick start your summer, and is packed full of holiday essentials.

Box Swap!

Recently, the lovely Elle (xgardenofedenx) and I decided to
do a box swap. They are mostly beauty related, but we have
each included a few non-beauty items too. I had
so much fun doing this and I adore my box, so
thank you, Elle! So, what's inside?
