The Ever Important Basics

I've written about 10 massive paragraphs explaining my skin & the situation in which I was introduced to Laura Mercier's Flawless Skin (or how the sales girl almost cried at the state of my skin). But none of that matters really because all I need to say is before I started using this my skin was sandpaper. Scaly, horrible, ugly, bad.

Bad. Bad. Bad.

Now it's not. Pure and simple.

Flawless Skin is a cleansing oil which you pat on to your skin and it literally melts the makeup/dirt off.
Below you'll see I was experimenting with some Halloween eye makeup (mucho glitter eyes) and the results after using the Oil.

The whole process took 30 seconds.

If you have dry skin & a spare £30 I'd don't know why you wouldn't buy this. It's ridiculously effective and my skin as you can see is most definitely not dry, flakey or scaly. I've also been using it solidly, everyday, for 2 months and have used about a 10th of the bottle.

I'm trying not to r…

Touch Those Titties!

Girls (and guys) It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it's time to give yourself a good feel in the name of health & wellbeing. In order to promote this years BCAM myself and the other FABB bloggers you've heard me mention so often are getting together and fundraising for local charityPretty In Pink.
For those who don't know the awesomeness of PIP, a bit back ground for you:
Founded in 2006 by Noleen Adair, Pretty n Pink is the only registered Breast Cancer charity in Northern Ireland. It is run by a very small team of people including a breast cancer survivor and local volunteers from across the province. All the funds raised go directly back to Breast Cancer patients and their families in Northern Ireland.
I don't know about you but when it comes to things things like cancer, and other serious illnesses, but I tend to run and hide. The thought of sitting in that doctors office and hearing those words actually brings tears to my eyes. But we have to do it. 50,…

Not so seeing eye..

*pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat...pat...pat, pat, pat........pat...pat.....*
That's the sound of me hunting down my glasses. 
Everything is a shade of blurry without them and I spend way too much time feeling my way around rooms patting stuff down trying to relocate them. 
Enter contact lenses!! I wear them pretty much everyday and have done so (on and off) for the last 8 or 9 years. My relationship with contacts got off to a rocky start, I refused to wear my glasses in school so my mum got me monthly contacts which I loved at the start but after the first week or so they got very dry and irritating. Plus with all the cleaning etc I just wasn't into it. I then moved onto dailies but trying to find a good pair that weren't drying and didn't cost the earth was proving difficult. HOWEVER! After researching online I came across a website contactlenses.co.uk which had a dupe of the Specsavers lenses that I quite liked. After using the website fo…

Scarfy McScarferson

I love scarves and it's just getting cold enough now to get them out again! I've got mine all out of storage, washed and ready for crisp Autumn mornings/afternoons/evenings/night time.

I seen on Avril's blog School Gate Style she had posted a video from Stella & Dot 10 Ways to wear a scarf (ps the scarves are flippin' beautiful in that video so be sure to pop over and check it out) and it reminded me of my favourite scarfy video...





I just love how this video is made, so smart! I'll be using pretty much all of the styles through Autumn and Winter! So enjoy and if you have seen any pretty scarves recently be sure to link me below!!

Wrap up warm and don't be sitting on anything cold ;)

Tan-orexic

I'm a bit simplistic when it comes to self tanning. I only ever do it on really special occasions and I'm a St Tropez bronzing mousse devotee. I've been using it exclusively for about 4 years and even then I'm only about half way through my second bottle! That's how rarely I tan these days.
So I was a bit intrigued when the lovely folk who represent He-Shi contacted me and asked me to try out one of their products I was intrigued. And a wee bit scared.
I was even more scared when it arrived and I found that it was so shimmery. I mean look at it! So much gold! And the reds and greens and... So pretty. But also dark. I'm a bit intimidated I won't lie.
But after a couple of weeks of staring at it I've finally plucked up the courage to dive in. So here is my review.

DESIGN: Not your typical tan bottle or squeezy tube, the luminous shimmer comes in a plastic tub with a tin lid so you can dip your hands/glove/face (each to their own) directly in. Its in b…
