Goodbye... For now

I have been contemplating writing this blog post for a good couple of months now. As you can see since Christmas I have hardly posted any new posts on my blog and have struggled to even find the time to write one post per week. In June I decided to take a little break from blogging, hopefully to come back after a couple of months.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner RRP £5.49
Long time no speak eh? I have been so busy over the last couple of weeks that when I have finally sat down to do some blogging I haven't had the brain power or motivation to write anything. I think sometimes it's nice to have a little break every once in a while so we can get back on track and get our momentum going again!

Finally, we have had some gorgeous warm spring weather over the last couple of weeks (even though it's pouring with rain today) and it's time to wave goodbye to our winter white skin and say hello to a gorgeous summer glow!

Nivea Micellar Cleansing Water

Nivea Micellar Cleansing Water Review Ohh So Glam Blog
Nivea Micellar Cleansing Water RRP £3.00

Pro Formula Radiance Face Mask

Pro Formula Radiance Face Mask - RRP £1.00 Tesco
Over the last couple of months my skin has become horrendous! Usually I have quite normal-dry skin but lately my skin has been super dry yet I have had some pesky spots keep appearing on my chin!
Peel-off face masks are my favourite as they are mess free and pretty fun to peel off your face.

Eye Of Horus Brow Define

Eye of Horus Brow Define in Husk - RRP £15.00*
If you have never heard of Eye of Horus before, they are an Australian Makeup brand that have an award winning range of eye products that are wax and oil based, paraben-free, so they are great for sensitive eyes like mine!

NYX Butter Glosses | Fortune Cookie & Maple Blondie

NYX Butter Glosses - Fortune Cookie & Maple Blondie. RRP £5.00*
NYX has to be one of my favourite brands. I just wish they were available in Boots or Superdrug rather than having to buy online, but yet again maybe that's a good thing for my bank balance!
Their lip creams have to be one of my favourites so I knew their butter glosses wouldn't disappoint.

My Top 5 Spring/Summer Lipsticks

Spring/Summer Lipsticks 2015, Review, Swatches

Following on from my Top 5 Spring/Summer Nail Polishes blog post, I thought it would be rude not to share my favourite lipsticks that I will be sporting this Spring/Summer as my lipstick collection is gradually growing bigger than my nail polish collection!

Here are my top picks...

Summer Blushes from NYX

NYX Blush Mocha & Pinched* RRP £6.00
Summer is on its way and how cute are these blushes from NYX? During the Spring/Summer months it's nice to add a pop of colour onto your cheeks and the two shades I'm loving this season is Mocha and Pinched.

Friday, 10 April 2015

Jelly Belly Lip Balms

Jelly Belly Lip Balms - Very Cherry & Coconut. RRP £2.50*.
No matter what time of the year it is, my lips are always dry. In the winter months they are super dry that I use a lip scrub and my Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Balm but in the Spring/Summer they are mainly dry because they are dehydrated.

MAC Pure Zen

I have been a little quiet over the last week on my blog as on my birthday evening I started to come down with a cold so I have been rather busy feeling sorry for myself! Thankfully I'm feeling much better now so I can indulge in an Easter egg or two!

In the words of IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!

Now is the time for me to change that number in my bio from 26 to 27 **cries**. I guess the countdown to 30 has now begun!
As it's my birthday I thought I would do a quick outfit post as I'm off shopping with my little girl today plus I'm loving my new dress from H&M that I picked up after I attended the intu colours fashion event.

New Favourite | L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte

Loreal Infallible 24 Matte Foundation Review Photo
L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte RRP £7.99
I'm a nightmare when it comes to trying out a new foundation. When it comes to drugstore foundations I usually stick to my favourites, but as soon as I saw the advert for the new Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation I literally dashed out the next day to purchase it.

TGIF | Broadway Impress Press-on Manicure

Thank God it's FRIDAY! What better way to get in the mood for the weekend than with these TGIF falsies by Broadway Nails.
I'm an avid wearer of false nails and always apply them myself. While having a rummage through my nail polish collection to pick which colour to wear for the weekend, I noticed these press-on manicure nails that I received over a year ago from a blogger event and thought I would give them a try. Plus I thought the TGIF design was fitting too.

My Dressing Table & Makeup Storage

When I ask on my blog or twitter what blog posts you would like to see, I always get requests for my dressing table and makeup storage. I've had my Ikea Malm dressing table for a while now and brought some handy storage inserts about a week after I purchased the dressing table but it has taken just over a year, and me moving house for me to actually put the inserts in the draw and sort my makeup! I also used to have a boring black chair at my dressing table but since moving house I have changed it for the Ikea Adde Chair which is a simple white and also a bargain at £10.

Hi Everyone... I'm Back!!
If you are a loyal reader of my blog you will know that I've recently moved into my new house and decided to take a short break while I got everything sorted and got my new home looking exactly how I want it.
Now all the meyhem is over, I'm finally back, and even though I only had 2 weeks away from blogging it all feels so new and very strange to get back into!

Guest Post | 30 Things I Learnt from Living in Paris by Katie - La Coco Noire


Hello, I’m Katie and I blog away at La Coco Noire. In 2013, I upped and moved to Paris with my boyfriend. It was a total whirlwind of emotions - difficult at times, tiring, stressful and patience testing (French bureaucracy I’m looking single-handedly at you) but I can wholeheartedly say that 95% of the time it was totally and utterly breath taking…and I’m not just talking about the five flights of stairs up to our apartment either. Yep, I’m serious – five flights and no elevator (which, in hindsight, was a total blessing in disguise considering my daily macaroon intake – exercise was definitely needed!)

Guest Post | Makeup Revolution Matte Brights Review by Diary of a Beauty Padawan

Neutral colours: whether shimmery or matte, they're pretty nice, but sometimes you want something that's a little less Meghan Trainor and a little more Lady Gaga. Unfortunately for some, many of the bright, bold colours out there are metallic or glittery, which might not be your forte.

That's where this palette comes in.

Be Right Back...

Hi Lovelies.
If you follow me on Twitter you will probably know I have been rather busy lately. We are also in the process of moving house this weekend so having to pack everything and get everything ready for our new house has left me with virtually zero time for myself let alone to blog.

Obviously there is much more to my job but that is pretty much it in a nutshell.

First Look | Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Hi Everyone. Hope you are all having a lovely week so far, Sorry I have been AWOL over the last week on my blog and on Twitter but we have been busy house hunting and fingers crossed we have found a new house that we love.

Monthly Advertiser | Just Ems

Hi I'm Emma, a 32 year old red-head from Southampton UK and like most girls, I have struggled with my weight and relationship with food for my entire teenage and adult life. For years I have obsessed about my weight and my looks and allowed it to define my own self worth, constantly comparing myself to others and feeling that unless I was thin and beautiful, then I didn't deserve happiness. The thing is I love food and as I got older, I loved to eat out and enjoy the company of my friends and family at a good restaurant, accompanied by a few drinks as well!

NYX Super FAT Eye Marker

NYX Super Fat Eye Marker
NYX Super FAT Eye Marker RRP £9.50*
Felt liners make life much easier when trying to achieve the perfect feline flick. Over the last year I have gone off felt liners as they only seem to last me 2-3 weeks before they start drying out, but after seeing so many positive reviews on the NYX fat & skinny eye markers, I had to try one of them out for myself.

My Current Favourite Foundations

On of my top makeup products that I couldn't live without is my foundation. It hides a multitude of sins and leaves you with a flawless finish... What more could a girl ask for. I'm not usually one to have tonnes of base products but thought I would share some of my all time favourite foundations.

Makeup Revolution Blush Palette | All About Pink

Makeup Revolution is gradually starting to takeover my makeup collection. Every product I have tried from this brand I have loved (but I must say I'm not a great fan of their concealer as it is quite runny). If you haven't heard of Makeup Revolution before, they are a drugstore brand available in Superdrug stores nationwide and also online. Their product range starts at a bargain of £1 and as their prices are more affordable, doesn't mean they lack in quality.

The All About Pink Blush Palette is my latest addition to my Makeup Revolution Collection. It contains 8 stunning shades which include a mixture of matte, shimmer and baked merged powders. The 2 shades to the far right I like to use for highlighting and the gorgeous pink blush shades might look pretty scary as they are highly pigmented, but use a light hand with your favourite blush brush to add a pop of colour to your cheeks.
Sometimes if the blush looks a little bright or I've applied too much, I will gently go over with any product that's remaining on my foundation brush.

If 8 stunning blush shades wasn't enough, they also come in a sleek black case with a full size mirror inside.

I really must sort out my Malm dressing table this week as I just have all of my makeup thrown in the draw, and in summer last year I purchased some storage compartments for inside and I still haven't sorted them out. I guess one of my new years resolutions could be to sort out my makeup draw!!

The All About Pink Blush Palette retails at £6.00 and is available from Superdrug and

What do you think of this blush palette? Are you a fan of Makeup Revolution products?

International Beauty Swap | Sign-up Here!

A couple of years ago when I first started blogging I did a UK Beauty Swap and it's a great way to meet other bloggers and to also try out products that you may not of tried or heard of before.
I thought I would put together my own International Beauty Swap so bloggers from across the pond can share their beauty favourites. If you would like to join in then please read below...

1. If you would like to take part then please leave a comment below with your email, blog url and twitter username. If you could also let me know if you prefer a UK only, International beauty swap or if you are happy with either. Also please state the country you are from too. Your chance to sign up ends Saturday 24th January 23.59 GMT.

2. The following day I will then pair two bloggers together and email/tweet you both so you can find out more about each other. This is a great time to find out their favourite lip colour, skin type etc so you can pick the perfect products that your swapping partner will love.

3. In terms of budget, I would say £15-£20 (or equivalent in your local currency) but you and your swap partner can decide on more or less depending on your budgets.

4. Once you have both shopped for your goodies, arrange a date when you will both post then you should receive you swap items at the same time. Please post via Royal Mail signed for or special delivery and remember to keep your proof of postage. Also check what you can/can't send to international countries before posting.

5. Finally, enjoy your goodies from your swap partner and don't forget to blog about them and your experience too. If you would like to email/tweet me with all of your links to your blog posts then I will link these all in my own beauty swap blog post.

Please note: All bloggers must be 16 years or over. I'm only here to help organise your swaps and I'm not liable for any missing/unsent parcels. If you ever have any queries you can drop me an email.

So if you want to take part just leave your email, twitter username, blog url plus UK only, International or no preference in the comments below. Also please state the country you are from too.

L'Oreal Color Riche Barely Peach by Julianne Moore

Happy new year everyone! Did you all have a lovely Christmas?
In November I featured L'Oreal's Julianne's Nude lipstick in my monthly favourites. I have completely fell in love with this lipstick after purchasing it on the off chance! Boots had a 3 for 2 on L'Oreal products and I was looking for a 3rd product that I could get for free, when the L'Oreal makeup assistant said I should try out Barely Peach by Julianne Moore.

This lipstick is a pretty nude pink shade and is similar in colour to MAC's Creme Cup (see above swatches) apart from Creme Cup has a slight blue undertone to it. Julianne's nude is also creamy in texture and doesn't dry out on your lips. It is a perfect everyday colour and I repurchased it in December as I have been loving it so much.

In the L'Oreal Color Riche Exclusive Nudes there are 6 shades in total so you can find the perfect nude for your complexion.

Have you tried any of L'Oreal's exclusive nudes? What's your favourite nude lipstick?
