Pavlova With a Twist – My Come Dine With Me Dessert!

Some of you may be aware (due to my erratic excitement), that I was on the popular television program ‘Come Dine With Me’ not so long ago. If you aren’t aware of the program, the basic jist is that four or five strangers (four in my case), compete for the title of ultimate dinner party host. Over four […]

NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick

I was a complete liquid lipstick virgin before biting the bullet and purchasing this one from NYX Cosmetics. I had only the reviews from fellow beauty blogger and YouTubers to go by, so I was restrained and only bought the one to trial. I’m not one for spending time perfecting my lippy, so I was […]

After all, empties videos are one of my favourites to watch […]

Most Loved Moisturiser

I trust you all had a lovely and well deserved Easter weekend break. Mine was of course filled with chocolate eggs and not one, not two, but three roast dinners – blimey.

The Flawless Drugstore Base | Oily Skin

Origins Skin Refining Oil | Review

This product has been staring at me on the counter at Boots screaming “buy me” for months now, but the price tag has always put me off. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever spent so much on a single skincare item.
