Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser – This product is a staple for many beauty bloggers and I can certainly understand the reasons for it. Cleanse & Polish transforms your every day regime into a luxurious pampering session that you will actually look forward to. It is brilliant for cleansing (and removing make-up) […]

Blog | 2015 In Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for The Girl in Glasses! Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for […]

Blogmas #7 | Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar (Days 12-24)

I can’t believe that I’ve opened the final door on my Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar today – seriously, where has the time gone?! This has certainly made the countdown to Christmas so much fun and provided me with ENDLESS nail inspiration! Here are the final set of nail products that where hidden behind days 12-24’s […]

Blogmas #6 | Yankee Candle Christmas Favourites

Whilst we know that candles are great all year round, there is nothing quite like striking your match and burning your favourites in Autumn/Winter. It means that you are invited in from the cold, dark evenings to a deliciously scented home, which instantly makes you feel warm. I’ll admit, I’m a Yankee Candle addict because of their authentic, bold and unique range […]

Blogmas #5 | The 30-Day Generosity Challenge

Another Monday closer to Christmas, another day crossed off our calendars and another chocolate eaten in our advents! This is my favourite time of year because it’s filled with love and smiling faces, it’s the season of goodwill and there’s no better way to spread joy and happiness than generosity. Often, generous acts are part of our […]

Due to unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances, I haven’t been able to write a blog post every day throughout December but I’m going to continue to number the entries, as I still hope to get more posts published this month than ever before. Last week, we took some time out to visit the Manchester Christmas Markets […]

Blogmas #2 | The Christmas Tag

As we are now in the month of December, you will notice that almost everyone has gone Christmas crazy but who can blame them with only 22 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I saw the Christmas Tag being passed between blogs and making appearances on Twitter yesterday, so I thought that I would get into the spirit […]

Blogmas #1 | Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar (Day 1)

Happy 1st December! So, this is basically me for the rest of the month: To mark the 1st of December, my parents very kindly surprised me with the Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar, which I couldn’t find anywhere last year but they struck lucky when they found it in the January sales! Since this is last years […]
