Candy Cane or Spots & Stripes?

Todays nails are a very popular design around the Nail Art world at the moment, they're summery, girly & kitsch. But here's where I get divisive; Are they bows with polka dots & pin stripes? Or little sweets with candy cane stripes & spots?

The answer? Well, obviously they can be both.

It's all about interpretation, however I have painted my two hands differently to show just how slight the differences can be. Now be honest... would you have noticed the difference if I wasn't highlighting it here?


(Above, Left) Left Hand = Candy Cane & Sweet
(Below, Below left) Right Hand = Polka Dots & Bow
Note the sweet is more rounded than the bow

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.

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…

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 …

Bring on the Hype

Some products in the world just don't live up to the hype. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is not one of those products... for me at least. I was really nervous the first time I used it, you hear horror stories of products burning your skin and Liz Earle is so expensive compared to what I'm used to buying on the high street I was a bit scared to invest. But when Katrina from Sugafix (who has literally become a Fairy Suga-mother to us FABB girlies and I love her muchly!) said that Liz Earle had offered to send us some samples I quickly snapped up the chance! And I'm very happy to say I loved. I loved the tingles on my skin when I first applied it. I loved genuinely feeling that my skin was clean. And I loved that combined with my Monu Recovery Balm my skin was looking flawless!

Then the sample ran out. and it was a sad day because I was on a spending ban and couldn't justify it when I had so many other products to use up. Then things got all kismet. My spending ban was t…
