Manicure Monday | Barry M - Mustard

You may have noticed that there are a few colours that I really try to avoid wearing in my nails, yellow is one of them. I have quite pink fingers and I find that a lot of yellow shades can really emphasise that. However, I fell in love with Mustard from Barry M as soon as I saw it so took the plunge and thought I'd give it a go.

#GoCrueltyFree with Beautiful Movements

Beautiful Movements Review

Being a vegan and cruelty-free blogger, there is one name that excites me more than any other, and that is Cruelty Free International. You may not recognise the name, but I'm sure you'd recognise their leaping bunny logo, after all, it is the gold standard in cruelty-free beauty and lifestyle products. You can imagine how thrilled I was to open an email from them asking if I was interested in working with them. I was sent some products from Beautiful Movements*, a new make-up brand co-founded by Kimberly Wyatt of The Pussycat Dolls, and today I'd like to share my reviews with you.

Manicure Monday | Barry M Daylight Curing - I Can't Get You Out Of My Red

After trying out another of Barry M's Sunset Gel Nail Paints and loving it so much I was keen to get another shade and see if I felt the same way about that one. I decided to go for I Can't Get You Out Of My Red because I'm a big fan of bright red nails and it looked so beautiful on photos.

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box #5 | First Impressions

As I mentioned in my last Vegan Kind post, I was thinking of keeping my subscription after previously cancelling it. I was so happy with box number four that I did just that. Because the beauty boxes are sent out quarterly I do find that I forget it's due, so is always a nice surprise when it lands on my doorstep. Here's what was in the latest box.

Manicure Monday | Models Own - Brunette Red

So far this autumn I've really tried to mix my nail polish colours up a bit. My favourite colour at the moment is burgundy so it would be really easy to wear a slightly different shade of that each week, but I'm attempting to be more adventurous this year. However, I couldn't help myself this week and just had to dig out my previously unopened bottle of Brunette Red from Models Own.

Manicure Monday | Ciaté - Stiletto

For the first time ever I've had a request for this week's Mani Monday. I've been asked if I'd feature a green polish, and my mind immediately went to Stiletto from Ciaté. If you're a long-time reader, you may remember this from my nail post last autumn, but I never got around to featuring it on its own.

Sometimes You Just Need a Good Cry

If you've been following my social media accounts for a while, you may have noticed a bit of a change in the content that's being put up there at the moment. I seem to have gone from my usual 'I'm ok, in an OK mood and relatively talkative' to 'OMG I'm in such a good mood, look at me smiling, how are you? How's life? You good? Am I talking too much? Ooh have you seen this?', and I'm here to tell you why.

100% Pure Maracuja Oil Air Cushion Foundation

Foundation is one of the few make-up products that I'm always a little sceptical of trying from new brands. I have dry to combination skin and am very fair with very slight pink undertones, so finding a great shade match for me that also doesn't cling to dry patches or make me look oily is quite a task. After browsing the 100% Pure website, I thought I'd give their Air Cushion Foundation* a try, the shade that I'm reviewing here is Alpine Rose, their lightest cool-toned shade.

Manicure Monday | Nails Inc. - Shoreditch Lane

Nails Inc. is a brand that I used to use a lot, but over the years their formula seemed to change, and not for the better, so I almost gave up on them as a brand. However, a few months ago I saw their Leather Effect collection and was intrigued so decided to give them another go, the shade I have on this week is Shoreditch Lane.
