    A Pony Called What? – Product Review

    Am I the only person that still has smellies left over from Christmas? Over 8 months later and I still have a few but I’m a little sick of smelling like my Nan’s favourite flowery scent. Again, is that just me that ends up with “lavender” or “white lily”? Don’t get me wrong, I love lilies, they’re my favourite flower but have you ever really smelt one? If I have fresh ones in the house I spend a good day or so wondering who’s done a wee in the kitchen! Old fashioned smells are something of the past now though. I have swapped out a couple of my current products…

    August Empties 2018 – What I’ve Used Up This Month

    I’ve seen many a beauty blogger doing these types of posts. I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and post about the products I’ve finished off this month. I am not the biggest user of beauty products; I am very lazy (which you can read about¬†HERE). That also means this won’t be a regular thing unfortunately. It takes me a while to use products up as I don’t tend to stick to the same ones day in day out. But anyway, back to this month and my August empties! This month I have come to the end of 5 different products. This post is basically a run-down of what the…

    August Glossybox ’18 Review

    It’s that time of the month again: The August Glossybox time! I’ve managed to get through the products quite quickly this month. The main reason being, it was mainly makeup and the 2nd reason being, I didn’t try some of it. So the theme this month was ‘Pride’. It was of course Brighton Pride this month and I think it was a great theme for this month’s Glossybox. The special edition box looked great! The multicolour, paint splashed, rainbow lid looks beautiful. The inside looks just as good with the rainbow dots on the ribbon. Everything about the theme was fantastic, it’s a shame about some of the products. Let’s…

    XO Balm Review

    I was asked to trial XO Balm as I get patches of dry skin on my arms and legs at times. I use moisturiser pretty religiously after a shower or bath in order to stop them from getting too bad. So when I got offered the chance to try a multi-use, natural balm of course I jumped at it. Natural products are a big thing for me these days; shampoo, soaps, you name it, I’ll try it! I just feel like it’s nicer to know what you’re putting on your skin and hair rather than using something with a million ingredients that you can’t read. Yes they are slightly more…

    July 18 Glossybox Review

    It’s that time again, another Glossybox review! We’re now over halfway through the year, seriously, where has time gone?? We’ve had one of the hottest July’s on record and it has been glorious! But because of this, I have decided I’m going to go live in the sea and become a mermaid… This month’s Glossybox will help me do just that! The Beach theme for this month’s box is spot on! The box itself is absolutely beautiful with its ocean colours and reflective water look. Unfortunately my box was a little worse for wear in one corner but I think I managed to disguise it for photos. The contents this…

    Ecosoapia – Natural Soap Review

    I’m really loving natural products at the moment. I’ve tried body creams and the loveliest shampoo and conditioner combo which you can read about HERE, among other things. It’s just nice to use products that don’t contain any nasty ingredients that you can’t read the names of! It’s better for your skin and for the environment. I was sent a bottle of Ecosoapia to try and the first thing you notice about it is the label. Just WOW! It was designed by David Smith who is regarded as the best calligrapher in the world and you can see why! The detail that has gone into the design is just incredible…

    June 2018 Glossybox Review

    I decided not to do a reveal this month as I have quite a few beauty products to post about as it is and I am struggling to find the time to write up posts. It hasn’t taken me long to make way through the products though so here’s my review for this month! For anyone who doesn’t know about Glossybox, it’s a monthly subscription box that comes through the post and contains 5 different beauty products. It’s a great way of trying things you wouldn’t necessarily buy yourself and it’s only ¬£10. We have the pink box again this month which is as beautiful as ever. This colour just…

    E’lifexir – The Miracle Cream To Solve All Our Body Woes?

    I’m a bit of a sceptic when it comes to beauty products making bold claims as I’ve not had the greatest experiences in the past: “Gradual Tan = look like you’ve dragged a teabag down your limbs!” These creams and gels don’t actually claim to be miracle workers but with name like “Flat Tummy” and “Body Lift” I know people would get excited and expect them to be! E’lifexir promote themselves as the “Next Generation of Natural Body Care Products” with 99% of their ingredients being totally natural. They are vegan friendly and contain no nasties, are also hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. I was asked which of…

    May Glossybox Review

    This month was a special edition box and it was SO pretty! I keep all the special edition boxes so I’m sure this one will find a new home as something else at some point. This box was definitely a pamper one which was really nice, I actually had to take time out to try some of the products rather than fitting them in to my usual daily routine like a normally would. So let’s just have a recap on what was in the box: I’ve got to admit, I do feel a little bit cheated this month as there were technically 5 products and an “Extra treat” I feel…

    Clinique For Free

    I am a bit of a bargain hunter and I love to save money on anything I can. I do surveys for vouchers, shop around to find the cheapest prices and I look out for freebies. This is my best find so far though…. Yes you read the title correct, Clinique bits FOR FREE! So, how did I do it you ask? It was pretty simple really. If you’re a regular to my blog then you’ll know I have a Glossybox subscription and I post about it every month. Well, each month Glossybox offers the chance to answer survey questions on the products. You do it on their website and…
