Beauty | What’s In My Makeup Bag

In all of my time blogging, I can’t believe that I’ve never done a “What’s In My Makeup Bag” post. My everyday makeup bag (featured in the photo above) is filled with those products that I consider to be the ‘essentials’, since I use them (pretty much) on a daily basis. The only cosmetics that […]

January 2016 | Star Product Of The Month

Beauty | St. Kitts Herbery Amber Musk Perfume Review

You might recall that last year I sampled and reviewed a range of St. Kitts Herbery perfumes and I have visited the site on numerous occasions since then. During a recent browse, I discovered a brand new fragrance: Amber Musk – cue the oooh’s and aaah’s! I quite like musky scents, especially during the Autumn/Winter months, but I’m still selective […]

Fashion | #GoldenGlobes 2016 Red Carpet Review

It is the event that everyone is talking about – and understandably so, as Hollywood’s biggest stars descended on The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

Since this is last years […]

Lifestyle | The Independent Guide To Walt Disney World 2016 Review

This time 2 months ago I was midway through my 10th family vacation in Orlando, Florida – the happiest place on Earth. It’s fair to say that as the sky in Britain has turned 50 shades of grey and there has been enough rain to fill an ocean, I’ve experienced a spell of the vacation blues. I absolutely […]
