Book Review: Bridget Jones Mad About The Boy

Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy

"Friday 10 August. Twitter followers 75, then 102, then 57, then probably none by now."

Bridget Jones is a national treasure, isn't she? The woman who's always hopeless in almost everything she accomplishes, yet still makes it through safely in one piece to the other side. The series was founded upon her search for the perfect man so I was intrigued as to how the third book was going to play out when she already bagged him in the last book.

L'Oréal Color Riche Nail Polish in Exquisite Scarlet


This little limited edition beauty comes free inside L'Oréal's So Couture gift set when you spend over £14.99 on L'Oréal cosmetics at Boots. I wouldn't normally want to post about something that is only available for a brief amount of time, but I thought I would this time because it's too good not to share.

Shu Uemera vs. A Budget Eyelash Curler


An eyelash curler has always been one of those things that I've never wanted to spend a lot of money on, as it seems like more of a luxury indulgence than a necessity in my daily routine. When I did spend money on one, I went to Boots a couple years back and bought their modestly priced offering. Then the day came when I was given the Shu Uemera eyelash curler for my birthday and the way my eyelashes looked from then on changed for good.

The Winterlicious Tag


Time for my very first tag! I love to have a nosey at people's answers to tags so I'll have a go at answering my own in case any of ya are interested. Like everything else in the blogger world right now, the theme is Christmas. Thanks to Ashley who tagged me, and I tag the lovely Kayleigh and Jessica. On with the questions!

Vaseline Limited Edition Queen Bee Lip Balm

I'm a sucker for cute packaging and anything with 'limited edition' thrown on it (marketing, eh?).  Vaseline have brought out their fourth limited edition lip balm just in time for the stuffing of Christmas stockings, and it smells great.

Album Review: Flight Facilities - Down To Earth

Flight Facilities - Down To Earth

It's rare for me to find an album where I like pretty much every track, but Australian electronic music producing duo Flight Facilities have managed to make one. The perk of them being apparently unable to sing is that the album is a diverse collection of talented featuring artists (even including a surprisingly good acapella from Kylie Minogue).

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella

This is a product that really deserves all of its praise. NARS rarely disappoint and, for me, this Velvet Matte Lip Pencil knocks the old Laguna bronzer out of the park.

LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub

LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub

Winter seems to suck the air straight out of my skin and hair, but the real victim always tends to be my lips. You won't find me in December without at least 3 lip balms in my pockets, but that still doesn't stop them from peeling. In a recent #bblogger chat, so many of you recommended using a LUSH Lip Scrub so I went ahead and took heed of your advice and picked one up the other day.

L'Oréal So Couture Christmas Gift Box

Today I went to Boots to pick up some more of my all time favourite mascara, and I realised that it's that time of year just before Christmas when every makeup brand is trying to get their 'stocking stuffers' out there and into the baskets of festive shoppers. Luckily for me, L'Oréal's offering includes not only the amazing So Couture mascara, but also 3 other full sized iconic products.

A Cautionary Tale: Yankee Candle Pillar Candles

Yankee Candle Large Vanilla Pillar Candle

As much as blogging is about finding great new products to try, I also think it's about letting people know what products aren't so hot before they spend their hard-earned money and purchase them. In this case, it's the Yankee Candle pillar candles. Don't get me wrong - I'm a huge Yankee Candle fan - but this particular range ended up costing me far, far more than their retail price of up to £18.99.
