This has been the first Autumn/Winter where I've really gone all out and experimented with lots of different lip colours. I'm certainly not the bravest or most confident person though, so I wanted to do a post on the lip products which have helped to ease me out of my usually neutral- coloured comfort zone and into the more berry hued, darker pinks and red shades typically associated with this season.

Currently Loving: Crazy Rumors Gingerbread Lip Balm review - Limited Edition flavour & now in the UK!
Tuesday, 17 December 2013
Back in October, I raved about my first ever Crazy Rumors Lip Balm (the Amaretto flavour, so damn yummy) and how much I loved it so. A few people were asking where you can buy these in the UK and I had to direct them to various online places as they're a US brand. But now Crazy Rumors have been launched in Holland and Barrett - hooray!

When the beauty box craze first happened in the UK, many consumers were left wondering when a dedicated make-up or nail polish box would be introduced. A very, very long time later and there's finally one available thanks to So Susan.
Review & Swatches: B. at Superdrug - Rich Colour Lip Gloss in Morello, Poppy & Bambi, Vibrant Eye Shimmers in Rockstar & Lizzie and Lenghtening, Defining & Volumising Mascara
Wednesday, 11 December 2013
Every now and then, I spot a new make-up brand in a highstreet/drugstore shop that I can't believe I haven't come across before. One such instance of this revelation was when I discovered the B. range in Superdrug recently. The whole line is cruelty-free BUAV approved, and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

When it comes to wet wipes, I have two rules. 1. Use them sparingly and try to stick to using them just for the three Fs (Flights, Festivals and Fannies - thank you Caroline Hirons!) and 2. Spend a bit more and purchase ones which are as natural as possible. I usually stick to Organyc but when these samples from Mendill dropped through my letterbox, I was intrigued to give them a go.

Wednesday, 4 December 2013
Liz Earle's make-up range launched to much fanfare last year and continues to go from strength to strength.

I've always been attracted to handmade soaps, but I've only ever purchased ones that have been made here in England and elsewhere in the UK, as well as a few from France and Greece. So today's review marks a first for We Were Raised By Wolves as I've been trying some out from Indonesia, courtesy of Tsukiyo Soaps.

Highlighters can be strange things. Pick the wrong one, and you could have a glittery, discoball mess gracing the tops of your cheekbones. But pick the right one, and your face can (almost) completely transform into that of some mystical goddess. So it's time I sung the praises of the ones that I love and cherish in my make-up collection.

If you've been following my blog for a long time, you'll no doubt already know that I'm a big fan of Bodhi. This luxury English brand creates some of the most beautiful pampering bath and body products (as well as some amazing skincare). They recently unveiled their new Christmas gift sets which are based around the theme of Christmas in the tropics or "Noël Tropicale".
Apivita Review Part 1: Aqua Vita 24H Moisturising Cream-Gel, Natural Serum, Moisturising Hand Cream & Lip Care with Honey
Friday, 15 November 2013
Apivita are a Greek brand who have been around since 1979. I'd never heard of them before they came to the UK last year, but they quickly became adored by bloggers and regular natural products lovers alike. I've used their raved about Face Masks, but never explored the rest of their range until now.

Here are five samples that I've used up recently, featuring a mix of haircare, skincare and bodycare. I plucked them out of my travel bag at the weekend when I was swapping around some products and gave myself a little pat on the back for finally using some more samples up! (I'm weird, I know... lol) Anyway! Onto the mini reviews.

I chop and change the products that I use in my beauty routine all year round, but I take matters more seriously when it starts to get cold. My skin, like my general self, does not like cold weather and would much prefer it if it was moved to a pleasantly mild and sunny destination right about now. Sadly, that's not on the cards for the immediate future, so it's time to suck it up and get down to the business of protecting it from the evil, dehydrating, coldness that's rapidly approaching.

I've mentioned my love for the Original Tangle Teezer a couple of times; that cult plastic hairbrush that makes combing thick or long hair a breeze. I popped into TK Maxx yesterday to have a browse, and came out with this unexpected purchase - the Tangle Teezer Compact Styler, for only £5! It's the perfect travel / handbag companion.

The lovely Tania from Bow Tied Beauty recently tagged me in the I Love Fall Tag. I have to admit that I'm definitely more of a summer lover at heart, but there are a couple of things that I do like about Autumn:-
