New Launch : KIKO Modern Tribes Collection.


The newest limited edition from KIKO is their much anticipated (by me) Summer collection : Modern Tribes. Inspired by ancient rituals, tribal symbols & noble warriors, this beautiful collection is surrounded by the colours of the earth and the packaging I think is my favourite yet from KIKO! Put a touch of gold shine on anything and I am yours / their's.

As always there is a huge bunch of new products within the Modern Tribes collection ; foundation , BB creams, bronzers, blush, eye colours, lip colours and more and there is absolutely something for everyone. I was lucky enough to be sent a handful of products from the range and I can honestly say I'm absolutely blown away by it ; not just the wooden-esque & gold packaging, but as always the quality of product vs the price is just unbeatable. Full marks again KIKO.

Makeup Crush Monday #16 | Estee Lauder CC cream


I'm a bit lost when it comes to the copious amounts of 'alphabet creams' (BB/CC/EE) that are launching by the day ; there are just SO MANY to choose from that it can be a little confusing to know what you may need, if any. On the plus side, if you do a little research, you will definately be able to find one of these creams that fit into your routine, improve your skin AND fit within your budget. I've been loving the CC vibes lately and the Estee Lauder Revitalising Supreme Global Anti-Ageing CC Creme is one of the favourites. It is a fabulous product, and has continued to make my skin look glowing, fresh and feeling revitalised. Anti Ageing + Colour + Comfort.

I need YOUR help: American beauty brands & shopping suggestions!



Soooooo, wow how time has flown. 6 months ago (yesterday) me and my lovely boy got married in London. We had a one-week mini-moon the week after, which was actually AMAZING : we  went to the peak district & north wales for some serious hiking, dog-walking and sight-seeing and I had the best time. Now it is finally time for the BIG ONE : Our nearly one-month trip to the U.S.A where we are hiring a 4x4 and driving all over California and Nevada to see some major cities, do a bit of partying (Vegas, basically), some shopping (just me as I'm sneaking off behind his back), and for the most part, spending time in the beautiful and immense national parks. I can't bloody wait.

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream Review.


I have avoided eye creams for a couple of months now as I find that if I use very rich ones, very often....I just end up getting irritated eyes, a bit puffy and I just lose interest. My 20-yr-from-now-self will be wanting to kick me, so I am pursuing again with the eye cream! First up, and what has been in my 'waiting box' for a while now, is the Benefit 'It's Potent!' Eye Cream*.

I hadn't used this before, but I did used to use the Benefit 'Eye-Con' eye cream (now discontinued) many years ago and loved it and I am curious to see if their skincare still works with my older and more leathery self.

Body Firming & Summer Skin Prepping | Melvita L'Or Rose firming oil


It's only a mere peek around the corner away so it's time to kickstart your summer body prep routines and regimes ASAP! I have a super sluggish autumn/ winter so as soon as the sun starts to show I have a knee-jerk reaction to get my skin and self into some kind of more pleasing shape. I am always using some kind of firming cream/ treatment throughout the year and the L'Or Rose Firming Oil has been my current go-to as not only has it hydrated and nourished my skin wonderfully, I can also notice a visible improvement in the lumps and bumps.

Illamasqua To Be Alive | Vendetta Lipstick.




This electric blue lippie is from the forthcoming collection from Illamasqua, 'To Be Alive'. Not for the faint-hearted or the au-naturel makeup lovers, this shocking and show stopping shade 'Vendetta' is for those who like to shock, push the boundaries, experiment with makeup and dare to be different. I personally love bright lip colours although blue's aren't something I've delved in too much thus far. With my pink hair I am having to be a little more mindful of the lip shades I'm wearing as I don't suit all the colours anymore like I used to... sob.

Models Own Polishes For Tans : New Shades!


It's not often I open a parcel and squee a little bit with delight...but this week it happened. Last year Models Own launched what is my FAVOURITE nail polish collection EVER ; Polishes for Tans*. I just couldn't get enough of the bright, neon shades and I really liked every single shade and have still been wearing them a year on. *Takes a breath*

As this was such a popular range, Models Own have launched an extra 5 shades in time for summer, all to enhance tanned/holiday skin which is just right up my fake tanned street.
