New DS 3 X Givenchy Le Makeup

DSC_0471Growing up I was addicted to vintage cars. My uncle had a fully restored Morris Minor that I remember eating jam sandwiches in the back of nestled in a checked picnic blanket and some of my happiest memories is of him holding up traffic, waving cars past like my very own chauffeur in his driving hat. I arrived in style to my prom in a 1930’s Rolls Royce and felt like a princess. Throughout my younger years cars weren’t just about getting from A to B, but were part of life, caring for them, enjoying them. Then my first car was my pride and joy at 17; she was called Pepper, as she was peppermint green. Learning to pump the tires, refill the screenwash, and wash her properly was a big part of learning how to take care of something important. Now I’m a little older, and cars are more of a just transport mode rather than a huge lifestyle choice. But I have to admit, I miss having fun with cars, taking adventures in them and having my car say something about me. So when I was invited to check out the new DS 3 Givenchy Le Makeup, the car geek came out in me and I had to see what the model was all about. View Post

New In: Seventeen Makeup

Seventeen 17 Makeup ReviewLike any self-respecting, makeup loving 23 year old, I love Boots. It’s the makeup and skincare Mecca of every highstreet. I can spend hours lost in the Isles swatching colours and reading ingredient lists. But there is one brand that I hadn’t delved all that far into; Seventeen. So when the lovely people over at the brand asked if I’d like to take a closer look at the brand and try out some of their products I couldn’t wait to get stuck in! View Post

Products I Love/Hate

DSC_0049As a beauty blogger, I am incredibly lucky to get to try out lots of beauty products. It also, on the other hand, it does mean that I purchase a huge amount of products to feed my addiction. So between all the swatching, testing and applying there are some products that I find I fall totally, head over heels in love with and others that I…have a few gripes with, shall we say. So in this blog post I’m going to share some of the products that were so close to getting it right, the almost perfect ones, the ones that I love/hate. View Post
