Manicure Monday | Models Own - Coral Reef

As it's starting to warm up now I thought it was time to dig out a really bright shade of nail polish. I'm not usually one for in your face, obnoxious nail polishes, but something about Coral Reef from Models Own makes me really happy. I mean, just look how bright it is!

PHB Ethical Beauty Animal Testing Policy

A few days ago a reader sent me an email to ask about the brand PHB Ethical Beauty. I was unfamilar with the company so sent them an email to find out their cruelty-free status. Here is what I asked them:

The Make-up Wipes You Need in Your Life

It's not very often that I see a vegan product raved about on any of my favourite blogs, so when I do I sit up and take notice. This was the case when I read a review of the Superdrug Micellar Cleansing Facial Wipes over on Miss Makeup Magpie.

Jordana Eye Primer | Review

I'm not really one to switch up my favourite products much, there are certain things that I like to stick with what works, primer being one of them. But when I heard that ELF were ceasing trading in the UK I knew one of the first products I had to find a replacement for was the Studio Eyeshadow Primer in Sheer. After a little Googling I found one from Jordana that looked like it may be just what I was after, thankfully one of my favourite eBay sellers had it in stock so I was able to try it.

Manicure Monday | Barry M - Silk Nail Paint in Meadow

I've made no secret of the fact that I love glossy nail polish, and if it's not glossy enough I almost always top off my manicures with Seche Vite, but sometimes a polish is so perfect on its own that no top coat is needed. Barry M Silk collection is one of the few that I don't feel the need to make shiny, just look how gorgeous Meadow is without top coat.

Power Theory Portable Charger | Review

I'm sure we've all been there; you're out for the day and your phone battery starts to die on you. Do you turn it off and save the battery in case of an emergency? Do you leave it on and hope for the best? Thankfully now you don't have to do either, you can buy a portable phone charger, keep it in your bag and charge your phone wherever you are. I've been on the lookout for one of these chargers for ages now, and a couple of weeks ago received the Power Theory Portable Charger*, which is just what I was after.

Superdrug Black Cherry and Macadamia Nuts Body Butter | Review

Over the last year or so I've been utterly obsessed with finding the perfect body butter for me. I was looking for something that was thick but not greasy, hydrating but sinks in fast and preferably with an amazing scent too. After reading a review of the Cherry and Macadamia Body Butter from Superdrug I knew I had to try it, and it didn't disappoint.

Manicure Monday | Ciaté - Members Only

I've been looking at this polish for a few months now, ever since I opened the door hiding it in my Ciaté advent calendar, and I still can't decide if I like it or not. I'm not usually too keen on peach polishes on me, I think they make my hands look dirty, but there's something about Members Only that I just can't quite make my mind up about.

How I Improve My Mood

As I've told you a couple of time before, my health is something that isn't always at its best. I can have times when I'm fine for a period of time, and can do every day activities and live my life, but then I can have days, weeks or even months of feeling really ill and not having the energy to do anything. Over the years I've picked up a few simple tips that help me to feel a little bit better, even if only for an hour or so to get me through a rough patch.

My Top 5 Vegan Lip Picks for Spring

As you'll no doubt know by now, I'm a huge lover of deep berry lip products in the autumn and winter, but as soon as spring rolls around I'm ready to pack up my vampy shades and turn to my brighter and more pastel lipsticks. Unlike other seasonal favourite posts I've included an equal amount of UK and international brands here, since a lot of you are from other countries, so there should be something here that you can all get your hands on.

Manicure Monday | Barry M - Pink Silver Glitter

As you'll know by now, my favourite nail polish formula is glossy creme, but every now and then I want a bit of a change. It's not very often that I'll wear a super glittery nail polish on all of my nails, but Pink Silver Glitter from Barry M is one of the few that I think looks really nice on every nail.

Monthly Favourites | March 2015

Make-up wise, March didn't go to plan at all. I bought quite a few new products, but got to try so few of them out because I haven't been feeling my best. Instead I turned to some of my old favourites, things that I tend to overlook, and to be honest I'm kind of glad I did. It's very easy to forget some of your past favourite products when you're trying out new things all the time, so I really enjoyed using them again.

ELF Lip Balm Tint in Berry | Review

When I heard the sad news that ELF were stopping their UK distribution, but were holding an "everything must go" sale, I hopped straight on over to the website to pick up a few things. One of the products I really wanted to review was the Lip Balm Tint, and thankfully they still had the shade Berry in stock.
