Absolutely gutted my two Jo Malone Cologne's are empty, done, finished. I'd normally go out and replace my perfumes when they were done but unfortunately the price tag of these lovelies means I'll have to save up my rainy day fund a bit longer.

Just before Christmas, I did a little Makeup Revolution haul for myself, along with stocking fillers for family. At the time, if you spent over £25 you received a very generous selection of free gifts. One of the gifts you received was this 'You're Gorgeous Palette' from their sister brand I ❤️ Makeup.

Escape to the Garden with Clarins this spring and treat yourself to something lovely from their new Spring Collection 'Garden Escape'. The new collection was released last week and I was fortunate to come home to a lovely parcel from Clarins with some samples to review. My parcel included the new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector and their new Jolie Rouge Brilliant Sheer Shine Lipsticks, which I will review very soon. However today I wanted to showcase the beauty of the gorgeous Lip Balm Perfector.

I know, last to the party! I had read so many rave reviews about the Makeup Revolution Redemption Iconic 3 Palette that I just had to treat myself and my sister to it for Christmas. My goodness it is gorgeous!

The first time I heard of the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation was when my sister came over for coffee one Saturday morning, I thought that her skin looked absolutely flawless. I asked what she was wearing and she told me it was the new YSL Foundation - 'Fusion Ink'. It looked amazing on her. I had been using the YSL Touche Éclat foundation on and off for a couple of years but was starting to get a little bored of it.

I received Miss Dior Eau De Parfum in my stocking this year and is fast becoming my favourite scent. I'm terrible at describing smells but trust me when I say that this is gorgeous.
'an audacious chypre with a citrusy freshness and a jasmine heart. Sprinkled with fruity notes and underscored by the elegance of patchouli, this chic and daring fragrance is a new classic.I had been wanting to own this for a while and definitely scoosh it every time I pass through any department store. Even cheekily asking for samples from the counters. I Do the same with foundations. Nice trick if you are feeling the 'pinch'.
When I wrote my 30 before 30 list in 2013 one of my items was to find a signature scent. I think I have finally found it.

I just had to show you all my new IPhone 6+ cover, I had been looking for the right one for a long time now but the 6+ covers aren't so popular at the moment. However, when on Twitter the other day, I poked my nose into a conversation and found out that the lovely Charlotte from 'Ever in May' has a gorgeous Etsy shop - Charles & Wynn which has some absolutely beautiful hand made designs at reasonable prices. If you are looking for something sweet, check our her store here - Charles & Wynn.
I placed my order yesterday lunchtime and it was with me this morning. Thanks so much.
My skin is so temperamental, it is worse than a naughty toddler. It gets particularly worse during the Winter months. More recently because I have been feeling extremely run down, it has had several nasty break outs. I use Quinoderm, which is medicated cream to treat the outbreaks but because it contains Benzoyl Peroxide (which is excellent for the treatment of acne), it means it dries your skin out something terrible.
Luckily, I have two little superheroes in my collection of skin care products from the amazing brand Liz Earle.
