January blues seems to be in full swing, everything is dull and we can’t wait for February to show it’s face! ย The sky is grey and so are our attitudes…

But why is it we associate the colour grey with doom and gloom? It’s one of my favourite colours! It just makes me feel cosy!

So I thought I would compile 5 grey things to change your mind about this often forgotten colour!

Make Up Revolution Lip Kit Review!


Whilst in my local Superdrug last week I spotted the latest offering from growing make up brand ‘Make Up Revolution’. The Kylie Jenner inspired lip kits; ‘Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit’.


I’m a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics lip kit range, but as they’re only available from America it can be quite expensive to get them shipped to the UK. So when I spotted this cheap alternative I knew I would have to try it!

Trying DIY Japanese Candy!

Does anyone else’s 22 year old sister order DIY candy kits from Japan? Nope? Just mine then…

‘Kracie Popin Cookin’ kits are the latest trend which see’s mini meals cooked by just adding water! If you can call that cooking anyway.

I’m only surprised that my older sister, Lucy, hadn’t ordered some of these cheap kits sooner.

A Very Lush Halloween


Halloween is my second favourite holiday – of course Christmas is number one – and so as soon as October rolls around I don’t hesitate to pick up every ghost shaped, orange coloured product I can find.

From homeware to fashion, from beauty products to jewellery, if it’s halloween themed it will not take a hard sell for me to buy it.

Of course, there is one given product that everybody should be aware of by now and that is the infamous Lush halloween range!

I work in the amazing smelling shop and so couldn’t resist getting some of my favourite products to take home myself to try.

As soon as I discovered the furry beauties I knew I had to have them! You’ll soon learn I am a lover of all things fluffy and pom pom. In my mind, there isn’t anything better than easy slip on shoes with a touch of fluff.

However, I did question whether they were actually wearable?

I have gathered 3 different brands of the trend in order to compare.img_2853 Continue reading
