Gooey Chewy Gingerbread Men (or Women, or any other gender!)

This is something a bit different from my normal posts, but as the decorations came down and the Christmas jumpers got put away, and the Christmas Wonderland in Nottingham’s Market Square got taken apart, I’m starting to miss the mulled-wine cosiness that comes with Christmas. I found the solution a couple of days ago when […]

I’m Crazy About Guerlain’s Crazy Paris Crazy Pearls!

Is it just me, or does crazy not even look like a word once you’ve typed it three times? Anyway, I had a little bit of extra overtime pay this month from Christmas, so after falling in love with the Crazy Paris Christmas range in general upon a pre-Christmas shopping trip to Leicester, I knew […]

My Top 5 New Years Beauty Resolutions!

So, 2014 is finally here. This is the year that I will pass my BPTC, commence the hunt for pupillage and then all being well become a high-flying superwoman of the legal world! But before all that, lets start as we mean to go on. What’s that old proverb again? A tidy person has a […]

Clarisonic Mia 2 – First Impressions, and a Very Merry Christmas!

First of all, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and Santa was very good to you!

Illamasqua Lipstick in Shard

Oh my crikey, I had been lusting after this lipstick for SO LONG, but having paid out over ¬£12,000 for my postgraduate course it was one of those “must wait till payday” purchases that I then agonised over until approximately 5 minutes past midnight, when it was officially PAYDAY. How sad is that? (Actually, don’t […]

They See Me Haulin’… Part Two!

Next on my journey was TK Maxx… Dangerous at the best of times for a cosmetaholic like me! But saying that, I managed to pick up some gorgeous gifts for family and friends (and a couple of treats for myself, oops!). Please excuse the horrible white price labels on some of the items, I intend […]

They See Me Haulin’… Part One!

SO. I know I said I was going to cut back a bit but… Yep, that didn’t work! It’s ok though, not all of it is for me! I hate to break out the “C” word so early, but due to living with my disabled mum and the abject nightmare that is Christmas shopping in […]
