Travelling on Short Haul flights | What makeup to take on short haul flights

I love short haul flights…especially with a toddler! Ok, I was being sarcastic about that toddler part, but I do love short haul flights or just trips away. Quick trips away are a great way of taking advantage of the extra days we get over bank holidays, or when you want to get away from London for a few days. Here in the UK we have restrictions to what liquids we can take on the plane as hand luggage, and usually for cheap flights, weekend trips most people just take hand luggage…well maybe that’s just…

5 Days of Trying New Products | Day 4 – Estee Lauder Hydrationist Creme

When winter comes, my skin gets hella dry! I mean dry face, dry lips, dry ankles everything! Grey is the new black for me! I have combination skin on my face, which is definitely new. I used to just be oily but now I have an oily t-zone with dry patches on my cheeks and around my mouth. I have noticed the best way to get my skin more balanced i.e making the oily areas less oily and the dry areas less dry is to use a good moisturiser. I learnt this from my makeup artist.…

5 Days of Trying New Products | Day 2: Lush Face Mask

I have tried a Lush Face mask before and I really liked it, so I wanted to try another one. I have been trying to sort out my skin’s texture for a few weeks now.

I am slowly starting to get back to my usual routine, eating more healthily and drinking more water and taking care of my skin. I spoke to one of the sales consultants in Lush and he recommended this mask. I…

What goes through my mind whilst shopping at Sephora

*** When I spot Sephora, the black and white sign draws me in like a moth to the flame. It is so mesmerising. Child? What child? Husband? Where? The loud cries for mum become more and more faint as I start to move towards the promised land! I will jump through traffic, knock people over, just to get to that store. Sorry but not sorry! Get out of my way. Ludacris’s song starts to play in my head…’move, get outta the way, get outta the way!’ I have an adrenalin rush as I head to the store. Everything…

My Massive Makeup and Beauty Haul | Sephora, Duty Free and many more

I recently went on a week long vacation with my mum and my daughter to Dubai. If you remember, I spoke about Dubai being on my travel bucket list (here), so I was really excited to go. We stayed at the amazing Waldorf Astoria in the Palm Jumeirah, thanks to the British Airways sale! Our every need was catered for. I would recommend it to everyone and anyone! Let’s just say that my bank account took a hit on this trip, not on food and transport but on beauty products. There were many things I…

How to spot fake Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Glow Kits | That Glow

If any makeup product was going to be imitated, it would have to be the Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Glow Kits. Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Glow Kits are one of the hottest makeup products out at the moment. I mean a palette of 4 high intensity highlighters, which you can use separately or mix to get a more personalised glow sounds amazing right?! I managed to get my hands on one of the glow kits and it is definitely worth the hype. However, it was not easy for me to get! It kept on getting sold out,…
