Review & Swatches – Morgan Taylor Cinderella Collection Mini Set

Morgan Taylor Cinderella Collection

Is it just me or has this week just completely flown by?  It was such a busy week for me – and to top it off, it was a frustrating one too.  I planned on loading my final giveaway blog post on Wednesday but ‘technical difficulties’ totally messed with me and I now have to retake some of the blog post photos.  I haven’t had the time to take the photos again, but will make time this weekend.  So, come hell or high water – the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette giveaway WILL be up on Monday.

Beauty Snoop #4 – Scholl, NIVEA, Nip + Fab, Philips & More!

Beauty Snoop Pink Peonies Blog

I enjoy preparing for all my blog posts, but there are certain blog posts I really, REALLY enjoy writing (and taking photos for) – ‘Beauty Snoop’ is one of them.  ‘Beauty Snoop’ posts are short review / first impression blog posts, I usually feature 5 or 6 different products (skin care, hair care, nail care, makeup, fragrance or even makeup application tools) and give you my initial 2 cents worth on each item.  You can take a look at my previous ‘Beauty Snoop’ blog posts here, and in case you are wondering what the asterisks (**) next to certain product names mean, I cover all that in this blog post.

Guys – my love from Oskia has reached a whole new level. After discovering their cleansing gel at Christmas I have already picked up my second bottle, not just that, instead of being able to stick to the single purchase I sneakily added a mask into my online basket. Whoops. I just couldn’t help myself! Something about their floral fragranced, orange textured products that imparts the most wonderful glow to dull or tired out skin. Yes, they aren’t the most budget friendly options, but they do deserve all the love and admiration they receive. Continue reading


drugstore favourites

Recently my daily makeup picks have been including a number of drugstore gems that I would be lost without. It’s easy to fall in love with the luxe packaging and inviting displays of the high end beauty world but let’s not overlook those standout budget beauties that give their expensive rivals a run for their money. Today is an ode to all those cheaper items that get just as much love in my collection and are worth a dedicated post praising them. Continue reading

The hotly anticipated followed up to the incredibly popular (and constantly out of stock) Glow Tonic, this promises a radiant and dewy effect that is dispersed onto your skin in the form of a fine mist.
