Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick


Estee Lauder are one of those brands I'll forever be loyal to. My Mum first introduced me to them when I started wearing make-up and I've not looked back since. Everything from their make-up to their skincare has passed my dressing table and I still to this day use some of their products as my daily staples. Estee Lauder are just one of those brands that always deliver the goods - and their impeccable quality means they're on a pedestal that all other brands are constantly compared to.

My HUGE Spring Make-Up Haul!


Once a year I do a HUGE make-up haul. I usually do it in October/November so the really good Christmas sets have been released and you're fresh into Black Friday sales too. However with a baby due in the summer, meaning I'll be broke by Christmas...well, spring it was for this year's big haul! Now I'm not saying that I don't buy make-up at any other time - you all know I do! But this once-a-year haul is something I save for, have a clear out for and generally look forward to a hell of a lot more than Christmas itself.

Three Clarins Body Products You Need In Pregnancy


Being five months pregnant is wonderful - there's a little boy kicking me like mad, keeping me awake at night and giving me the most amazing summer treat to look forward to - that first cuddle is going to be amazing. But pregnancy is not my favourite thing, and it really can (and does) take it's toll on your body. Not just with extreme tiredness and sickness, but in ways you aren't prepared for. Mostly things like the fact that the hair around your face really thins out and grows back in unruly curls that resemble horns. Yep, FACT. The other thing that faces major change is your skin. I'm not just talking on the face, I'm talking all over. And it's hard to combat.

7 Spring Beauty Essentials


I'm so pleased that the weather is finally warming up. I even managed to go out in sandals last week for the first time without my toes feeling so cold and like they'd fall off. It's a miracle! (I'm always freezing.) Spring brings a bit of a smile to everyone doesn't it? It brings flowers, blue skies and a bit more optimism than most of us have had in a while thanks to the constant cold and grey clouds of winter. Spring also brings the perfect opportunity to refresh your beauty regime, include some new make-up shades in your collection and it also means there's a few products you need to start using from a health perspective too. Dang, it's not easy being a girl right?!

The PR's Guide To Blogging - Finding The Fake Followers


So there is a huge amount of noise right now about people cheating their social media numbers with bots and outright buying followers. And rightly so, because it's pretty outrageous. Being the blogging world that it is, there's also a lot of people stirring the pot, making things worse and generally misinforming about this matter. Which quite frankly helps no-one. Naming and shaming does nothing (although I can see the potential satisfaction that could be earned from doing so), and 'outing' those who do it or have done it, is also not the wisest thing in the world. Remember, your blog is your brand and your social media platforms are your voice - regardless of what anyone else is doing remember that if you sit online and 'out' bloggers, YOU look petty to brands and PR's. It's the sad truth, and while it might not be fair, if you make too much noise about something other people are doing then it actually has a negative impact on your own brand. The same can be said for those I've seen this morning making comments about being so disillusioned by the negativity, when one check shows they are one of the bloggers indeed using bots. PR tip #1: if you're doing it right now, perhaps don't sit and pretend you don't. Inauthenticity kills your reputation just as much.

An Introduction to Jo Loves - Pomelo


As far as I'm concerned, Jo Malone MBE can do no wrong. Not only did she create the gorgeous fragrances I love from Jo Malone, but a few years ago she then founded Jo Loves, a new fragrance brand with a whole selection of different fragrances to discover. Which to me is fabulous because it's twice the fun.

Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur and Blend It Yourself Drops - A 2 step Instagram Filter For Your Face


Ever heard the sayings about finding what you were looking for without even knowing you were looking for it? It's often said about great loves and solutions to problems that we didn't even know we had - and both are relevant in this case to me.
