Twenty Second Tan - With Tropic Skincare


QUICK THE SUN IS OUT AND IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE WARM!

Cue everyone swarming to beer gardens, wearing strappy tops and flip flops. When spring finally arrives in the UK, we embrace it like a long lost relative - grateful that Uncle Winter has gone for another year. For me that means one thing - it's time for the tan to come out. I naturally don't tan, I burn. Which is really annoying, so I have to rely on the fake-it-til-you-make-it method and use some form of fake tan. I've tried so many over the years, literally hundreds and some have been pretty good. But what I've never, and I mean never found, is a good facial tan. Multiple times last year I tweeted asking for good ones to try and each time I found moderate or badly performing versions. I usually just use a standard fake tan on my face, but it's so bad for the skin and wears off unevenly with the use of daily skincare. I really thought there was no wonder product out there to help give me a tan on my face...

What Social Media Has Taught Me Recently


As a blogger, I'm constantly online. To be honest, I'm more than a bit addicted to checking Instagram, scrolling through Twitter and generally logging online to see what's going on...even when I don't a.) actually care or b.) have the time. It's as much of an addiction as anything else and it can suck the joy out of life in an instant - or fill you with satisfaction just as quickly. When you're so invested in something, no matter what it is, your moods and emotions bounce off it. By this I should be even more brutally honest and say, your moods will often actually be dictated and commanded by it.

Top 5 Sheet Masks For Better Looking Skin


When it comes to pamper days and nights, I'm all about sheet masks. In fact, I'm all about any kind of face mask, but sheet masks are just so easy these days. Less mess by far and fab results - if you find the right ones. Sheet masks might mean you look a little bit like you're dressing up for Halloween for 15 minutes, but if you find a great one, you can guarantee it's worth the frightening 15 minutes for the glow you'll notice afterwards. I've been trying a lot of sheet masks recently, and some have been a huge hit, and others have delivered virtually no results. (I'm just being honest - not all beauty products do what they say on the tin folks!) However in my little testing sessions, I've found five absolute keepers - some of which I've already rebought several times over. So here's my top 5 sheet masks for better looking skin...

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance vs The Dupes: Which Is REALLY Best?


When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, the cult ones never get old, do they? I'm talking about the ones that even years down the line are still as popular as when they first launched. The ones that sit just in shot on Instagram pictures, and the ones that are constantly replaced when you hit pan on your favourite shades. There's just some palettes that deserve it and their cult status. And one of the most obvious is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance.

Two Minute Beauty Time - Filorga Time Flash Express Smoothing Active Primer


My new Two Minute Beauty Time series starts today - woohoo! Basically I've done a lot of reading recently on marketing, social media trends and things like that...yes, I'm that cool. And one of the main communication trends these days is that people want and need info in a fast and concise way. We log online or onto social media for what we're looking for - whether it's a browse, a catch up or a specific piece of content, but we want it delivered quickly. There's so much choice out there these days and I wanted to work on a new mini-series of weekly posts where I'll be focusing on ONE beauty product that's blown me away. It will be quick, punchy and informative. (I hope!)

A Crown Brush Walk Through


When it comes to beauty, I'm a counter brand taste with a penchant for drugstore too. Basically I love all cosmetics - from the very high end products to the drugstore staples constantly bursting onto the market. No more are the high end brands ruling the roost, drugstore brands are producing goodies with that x-factor we make-up addicts love - but at a fraction of the price. Suddenly they're on an even par and I love it, it's like there's a competition where there wasn't really a competition at all before.

Getting Perfectly Straight Hair With DAFNI


When it comes to doing my hair, I need something that's quick and easy but does a great job. I'm always on the go, and as someone with fine hair, I have to style it everyday. I've always washed my hair everyday - until recently. And I know everyone says that's really bad on the haircare scale of things, but if you're someone with very fine and thin hair (like me) then you'll know that there's no other way round it. Being so active and full on (and having the school run first thing!) now means I'm trying to switch to every-other day washing, at least for half of the week. Because my hair is so fine, I absolutely can't wear it down on the non-wash day because it's so flat, and have to result to dry shampoo and some sort of up-do....and hope for the best. For me, if I want styled hair then I need to wash it. And then we're talking about an extra half an hour a day...which all adds up in the morning rush...
