May Favourites 2014!

Hey everyone! I deeply apologise for my neglect of the blog lately – I promise more things should be coming this week. Somehow there just aren’t enough hours in the day! However I have been committing to my ‘one-a-week’ schedule for videos, so here is my latest offering. I’m talking through my favourites (of everything – beauty, lifestyle etc!) in this video so I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Let me know what your favourites for the month of May were in the comments, and don’t forget to thumbs up and subscribe! 😉


LUSH Haul (and new YouTube channel!)

Hey everyone… you may have seen it already (I uploaded it on Friday and put it on Facebook but somehow didn’t get round to posting on here… I’m sowwy!) but I have created my first ever VIDEO! Yep, that’s right, I decided my rambling could no longer be confined to the written word – so you get to have EVEN MORE of me (if you want – no-one’s forcing you, hehe 😉 ).

What do I have planned for my new channel? – Though this was little more than a half-formed thought a week ago, I’m beginning to get an idea of what I want to use this channel for. At the moment it’s going to be more of the chatty things; reviews of beauty products will in general be confined to my blog, but things like hauls, monthly favourites, rambling thoughts and other things will be making appearances on my YouTube channel. I am open to suggestions so if you are as nosy as I am, please give me as many as you have!

…Hope you enjoy! If you do, don’t forget to thumbs up the video and subscribe to my channel for more – I’m hoping to upload a new video every week 🙂


Barry M Superdrug Limited Edition Collection 2014 Review and Swatches

Hello everyone 🙂 as promised, here is the Superdrug counterpart of the Barry M Summer Limited Edition Collection 2014 🙂 I showed you the Boots duo here, and today I have two more to show you! I have to admit, in the bottle, I much preferred the Boots polishes. I looked at these two and thought something along the lines of ‘sheer shimmery pains-to-apply polishes’ – I was definitely thinking along the lines of Barry M Aqua Blue and Aqua Green, which were much more toppers than anything. I also thought the pink from these two would be a brush-stroky nightmare, and quite a dated shade. So the bar wasn’t set very high!

…I am pleased to tell you that I was wrong on all counts! A quick note on the packaging – I love that the Superdrug lids contrast with the Boots lids, which are black with white hearts! Such a nice touch 🙂

Barry M Boots Limited Edition Collection 2014 Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! I have another exciting release from Barry M today 🙂 as is their tradition, they are releasing some two limited edition seasonal Nail Paints for both Boots and Superdrug. I’m showing you the Boots duo today (Bikini and Carousel), and the blogpost for the Superdrug two will be up in the next couple of days.

These seasonal limited edition polishes often have a unique pattern or design on the cap and this year is no different – they have the cutest sweetheart print on them; I think they’re so cute! Even if I hated the polish colours I would still buy these for the packaging alone, because we all know I’m a massive sucker for cute/quirky packaging!

Barry M Summer Matte Collection

Hello everyone! An exciting package arrived in the post on Friday – I wasn’t expecting anything so I was super happy to see that Barry M had sent me the new Summer Matte collection to show you all! They sent me some other bits and bobs which I’ll be showing you in the coming days so keep an eye out! 😉

I’m the first to admit that I wasn’t a massive fan of the first Matte collection by Barry M, as the neutral-ish colours were very clashy with my skin tone (with the exception of Vanilla) and I found them all to be very thick. So I was intrigued to try these to see if the formula would be better… and if they would look nicer on me! So – grab a tea or coffee for this one, there are six shades and I’ve included two comparisons too 🙂
