Sampling Beauty #5

This Sampling Beauty post covers June and July selections as, with a holiday and a house move, I didn’t get around to trying most of these products until August.

A few of my favoured brands – Caudalie and Nuxe – are highlighted in this post but I’ve tried and reviewed some products from their ranges that I hadn’t used before.

Read on for my thoughts on my latest samples… Continue reading…

My top picks for Summer Nails

Summer nails should be bold and bright, and in today’s post I share a few of my favourite summer shades and colour combinations. Now, whilst I’m not much of a girlie girl, I love having my nails painted. For so many years, I played team sports and had to keep my nails super short; I was also a nail biter for years growing up so they never looked nice enough to be painted. summer nails, nail varnish, nail polish, essie, nails inc, hema, barry m, beautyFrom a recent Love Me Beauty selection, I picked Continue reading…

Sampling Beauty #4

There’s been a bit of a gap since my last Sampling Beauty post. For various reasons, including a holiday, an international house move, a new job and basically just not having the time or energy to even think about adding new products into my beauty and skincare regime.

Because of this, these picks were actually my May/June selections! Here’s what I got from Love Me Beauty and Feel Unique: Continue reading…

Sampling Beauty #2

I chose a broad range of products in March’s Feel Unique pick ‘n’ mix samples and my Love Me Beauty bag. Whilst I’m completely sold on a few of the picks, some of the products were just a step too far from my humble beauty routine. From Googling ‘what is cleanser for?’ to the far-from-ideal consistency and look of a body cream-gel, it was a month full of new product experiences for me. Continue reading…

Sampling Beauty #1

I’m pretty clueless when it comes to beauty products. I like what I know and I don’t tend to stray from my (very) little collection of tried and tested favourites.

This year, I’ve decided to try and be a bit more adventurous when it comes to beauty though. I want to try new brands and products but don’t fancy buying full-size, full-price items just for me to have a bit of a trial. Continue reading…

My top 5 posts from 2016

Having re-started this blog in July, I have since written 42 posts and received nearly 3000 views. Now for some bloggers, this probably isn’t very much but I haven’t really put much work into growing and promoting my blog so I’d have been pretty chuffed to end the year with 10 views!

I love to write and to share little parts of my world with you all. Work- and life-permitting, I would like to do more with my blog in 2017 – that isn’t a New Year’s Resolution though (I’ve never been one to make resolutions).

Blogmas saw me set and complete a new challenge and I saw a lot more traffic on the blog throughout December (thanks!) so when I started looking through my stats to pull together my top 5 posts from 2016, I definitely thought it’d be all about Christmas. It really isn’t though…. Continue reading…
