November Wish List

November Wish List
This November my wish list is a little mixed, with the chilly mornings and nights I pretty much live in my dressing gown and big fluffy knits. 


My Recent Empties

I have been thinking about doing this post for a number of months but always ended up forgetting and throwing away my empty bottles by accident. This collection of empties is from August, September and a little bit of October so is quite a biggy.


Soap & Glory Pulp Friction

Honestly, I think Soap & Glory are fast becoming my favourite body care brand. Their shower gels, moisturisers, scrubs etc are all some of the best I have ever tried.


Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream

The Body Shop is one of those shops that I just find myself in time and time again and I never leave empty handed. This eye cream has been a firm favourite of mine for quite some time now and has been re purchased about 3-4 times.


My Autumn Essentials

Autumn Essentials
Anyone that knows me knows I lurve Autumn! It is just my most favourite time of year, cosying up in front of the fire with a good book and a glass of red wine in hand with mellow music in the background and candles lit...ahh perfect.


Maxfactor Colour Elixir Glosses

When it comes to lip glosses I am a complete sucker, I often prefer them to lipsticks as they just give that nice hint of colour without being over the top - perfect for a natural day time look. 


Caudalie Beauty Elixir

The Caudalie Beauty Elixir is something that I have heard so many mixed reviews about. I really quite like facial mists and swear by the Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist so was really quite intrigued by this spray, so it only seemed natural to try this when I had a discount code to use on FeelUnique.com.


L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Elixir

I am a self confessed tanning addict, I love the stuff so whenever I spot something new that I haven't tried before then my impulse takes over and I have to have it. The thing that drew me to this product most was the luxurious and expensive looking glass bottle, the price was a little off putting but I had some Boots points to use so I treated myself.


Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

I have always been a big fan of Bobbi Brown foundations mainly because they only do yellow toned shades so fit my skin tone perfectly. When I heard of the new foundation sticks I just had to get one, they are perfect for just popping into your handbag for touch ups through the day and fit snuggly into any makeup bag.


H&M Makeup Brushes

Can I just start by saying look how pretty! The moment I saw these brushes in store I just had to get them mainly because rose gold does something to my brain where I cannot walk away without purchasing. 


Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

So I'm sure that you have probably already seen a zillion reviews of this product on other blogs and even though I know that you know how this post is gonna go I still wanted to write my own review.


September Favourites

September isn't one of my favourite months, I just fit it's a bit of a drag. It feels like Summer's over and we're just waiting for Autumn. My favourites from this month are a bit of a mash up really but they are products that I have really been enjoying using.


Guest Post - Fifi & The Diamonds

I will now be coming to the last of day Barcelona as you're reading this, sob sob! But so you're not without any posts from Dreaming Pretty, the lovely Antonia from Fifi and the Diamonds has prepared a guest post for all you lovely readers. Please check out her blog as I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do.
Firstly I should probably introduce myself. I’m Antonia, and I blog over on fifiandthediamonds.blogspot.com. The lovely Amanda asked me to write a guest post and of course I had to say yes!


Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

So The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet, honestly I really can't make my mind up on this product. It is a really odd consistency which The Body Shop have nailed by calling it a sorbet. When applying it almost feels like there are bits in the lotion which is what i can't get used to.


Guest Post - Beauty Glamorous - My Autumn Regime

Hi lovelies, so as you're reading this post I will be in, what will hopefully be, sunny Barcelona for my birthday. So rather than leaving you, my lovely followers with nothing to read, I thought I would include a couple of guest posts from two lovely bloggers. Please enjoy and be sure to check out Amys' blog, I'm sure you will love it just as much as I do.

Hello everyone, my name is Amy and I have a fashion/beauty blog beauty-glamorous. When Amanda asked if I would like to do a Guest Post on her blog whilst she's away on holiday I was delighted as I could return the favour when she Guest Posted on my Blog, I just hope that mine post is as good as what hers was. I hope all her followers enjoy!

October Wish List

October Wish List
October is probably my most favourite month of the year mostly because it's my birthday on 2nd October (today). But also because I always think of October as the start of Autumn, which is my favourite season, nights get darker, log burners and fires going, cold crisp mornings, the lovely colours on the trees, fluffy slippers and pyjamas, hot chocolate...the list just goes on and on of what I love about Autumn. So with this in mind my October wish list is pretty much centred around the Autumnal feel in the air.


Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

There's no doubting it, I'm a primeraholic. I love the stuff, illuminating, mattifying, colour correcting the list goes on, I just can't get enough of the stuff. So I  was shopping in Bamboo Beauty a month or so ago and picked up this lovely Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base, and breath. I do have quite a lot of redness around my cheeks and nose but I am naturally more yellow toned in my skin, which is why I went for shade 02 - Champagne with this primer. This particular shade is more aimed at correcting redness and with it's yellow undertones it was perfect for me.
