Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser

So I bought this month's In Style magazine for the free bodyshop eyeliners & mascara. I'm such a sucker for freebies!
Anyway, inside the magazine was this tinted moisturiser, I knew instantly with it being shade 3 it would be too dark for me to wear normally but I was having a bad face day so I slapped it on just to try and hide my blotchiness.

It blends really well as you can see and despite being 2 shades darker than my normal tone didn't look completely ridiculous. It sort of looked if I'd suddenly developed a very dewey "two weeks in st tropez" tan over the space of our morning tea break. Sadly the moisturising factor was missing on my extremely dry skin. I had to apply some of the soap & glory body butter I carry with me to blend it a bit & moisturise my skin. And when I got home from work I had to wash it straight off as it had gone patchy.
Maybe if I were to get the correct shade in this it would be something for a good skin day. It worked great on my hands!

  1. I've been tempted to try this, but now I'm not so tempted! Hate the thought of something going patchy on my face where people might see me.

    Yeah I wasn't blown away but then my skin was having a very bad day! Maybe the patchiness wouldn't be so bad with the right shade & decent condition. :-/

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Christmas Jumpers under a Tenner ft Tesco, Asda, Peacocks & KarmaClothing

So over the past few years, in keeping with the modern day obsession of all things simultaneously cute, ugly, and nostalgic, we have seen the comeback of Christmas jumpers.
Like most people however I haven't been able to join in the fun because I simply couldn't justify the cost. However this year I was determined and I have compiled a list of my favourite jumpers. My only stipulation? They're all under a tenner!

1. F&F Embellished Pull Me from Tesco £7: First & foremost I've only seen this 50% offer online so I'm not sure you'd get it in store. I love it because I'm obsessed with grey and I do like a good pun. The embellishment is totally on trend too so that's another box ticked! 2. F&F Nice Baubles from Tesco £6: again, I'm pretty sure this only meets the criteria online at 50% off but it's super cute and super cheap! And black. There's not enough black at Christmas in my opinion.  3. Black Rudolph from Karma Clothing £9.99: …

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …
