I became more aware of my spending along with what I already owned. Today I am sharing my New Year makeup resolution ideas and tips to help you achieve your goals! Continue reading



MAC pink lipstick comparisons

mac pink lipsticks comparisons

Isn’t it funny how when you are a fan of a particular colour you unconsciously collect lipsticks in that shade, although you swear in the shop they looked totally different?! For me it all started with my first ever MAC Cosmetics purchase of Saint Germain, the perfect Barbie pink, and I’ve been collecting lipsticks on the paler side of cool toned pink for years now. Today I’m going to do a MAC pink lipsticks comparison of these four lipsticks, which are all super beautiful in their own way, but also a little similar. Continue reading

Big Bucket Haul – November

Big Bucket Haul

Here is my November Big Bucket Haul! I heard that Big Bucket Sales are closing down, so I thought I better go before they end forever (although I’ll be honest I’m not sure if I believe they are actually closing down? I feel it could be like those rug sales that are forever popping up!). As always I was keen to pop in to get some dry shampoo as it is one of my life essentials. And I was keen to see what else was there and whether the closing down prices would be super cheap. It turned out that they had an extra 30% off marked prices for all cosmetic items, which meant I got some pretty sweet bargains. Continue reading



Remington Silk Italia Hair Dryer

The Remington Silk Italia Hair Dryer is my new favourite beauty tool. Nothing improves my mornings more than being able to dry my hair quickly and having it look and feel soft and silky before I rush out the door to work. For the past year or so I have gone through a range of pretty terrible hair dryers, including one which literally caught on fire while I was using it! So, when I was given the chance to try out this new Italian made Remington dryer I couldn’t wash my hair fast enough! Continue reading
