The 100th Post, Post


I've been creeping up to the big one hundred for a while now and each time I got nearer I'd reminisce and think about how far my blog has come since post number one back in June 2012...

Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid


Ahhh the irony, I've been planning this post for a while, but now I've actually got around to writing it, its pouring it down on a typically British "Spring Day". But then, you know what they say... it's best to protect yourself from harmful rays all year round and if I am going to be slathering SPF all over my face then there's only one that I'll be turning too...

My Blush Crush: Sleek Blush by 3 in Californ.i.a.


Who else has been avidly tuning in to watch the latest Daily Mix Beauty Bootcamp videos?! *raises hand* Well I noticed that Ava has been doing her own little series of vids to go alongside them to document her experience which I think is an amazing idea. In one of her video's (link) she went through the products that they were given on set to make up their kits and one little palette stood out and said "Elle, buy me, go on..." Okay so it didn't actually say that, but you get the jist...

The Sunday Post #3 The Face Mask...


It's the end of term at uni which means stress levels are nearing their peak and I am breaking out left right and centre. I've had so little time that no-makeup days have become a daily thing. Some may say that this is a benefit as it's letting my skin breathe. I would argue its a bit of a nightmare as when everything's nicely covered up with makeup I tend to leave my face alone... No makeup days mean that blemish staring at me in the mirror is just taunting me. However, when it comes to tackling them, I've been turning to my old faithful Good Things Five Minute Facial. Clear skin in minutes? Here are the deets...

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss


Let me take you back to Saturday afternoon, there I was in my local House of Fraser, perusing the aisles of the Beauty Section when like a Magpie something sparkly caught my eye... There on the Urban Decay counter sat a row of the most beautifully packaged lip glosses, ever. £14 later I trotted of with said treasure in tow... Here's the down low on Naked...

The Sunday Post #2 Gluten & Lactose Free Pancakes

Seeing as shrove Tuesday was this week, I thought I'd get in on the action and try my hand out at some pancake making. As I'm trying to avoid Lactose and Gluten at the moment, I've had to amend traditional recipes to and swap out the flour and milk with some replacement... The results? Surprisingly delicious!!!

The White Company: Seychelles Candle


Okay, after my last naughty White Company purchase (mentioned here) I swore I'd stay away from their gorgeously tempting website but in a moment of weakness... I caved. I don't know what to say guys, I'm sorry okay?! It was an accident! A beautiful, beautiful accident...

The Sunday Post



Everyone knows that Sunday is "the day of rest" which is why I think that it should be obligatory after a hard week, that come Sunday, a lazy afternoon snuggling under the duvet with a DVD and your fave candle should be on the cards. A makeup free day is essential, and if you're going to bare all why not give the old face a spring clean while you're at it? Here's what I like to use...
