American Drugstore Beauty Haul

When it comes to drugstore make-up, nothing beats shopping in the States. Their drugstore brands outperform, price-bust and generally impress to the max. Some of their drugstore products are so impressive in fact, that to buy them here, you'll end up paying over the odds, often counter-brand prices. Mad eh? So while I was recently doing some American shopping online, I decided to treat myself to a bit of a drugstore haul, and I am SO glad that I did because almost everything has wowed me...

Multi-Masking With Temple Spa

Face masking is one of my favourite skincare things. Every single pamper session I have, contains at least one face mask. And I use face masks at least a few times a week. For me, a good face mask is like a hard-hit of skincare in no time at all, and seeing as I can't often have a full-on facial at a spa, doing a face mask or two at home is the best alternative.

The NYX Professional Make-up Must Have's For The Season

If you saw my Insta Stories before Christmas, you'll have seen the huge amount of NYX Professional Make-up goodies that were delivered to me. I was so incredibly grateful for the chance to try SO many of their wonderful products, especially because their Lip Vaults are giving everyone (me included!) ALL the feels at the moment! I mean, what make-up addict doesn't LOVE an entire vault full of her favourite lippies?! With so much in their standard ranges, and so many new releases before Christmas, there's been a whole host of things to try out. But I have created a definitive list to the must have essentials that you need from NYX this season...

Colourpop My Little Pony Palette: Real vs FAKE!

I've wanted to write one of these posts for SUCH a long time, and now that I have, I can see them becoming a regular thing on Lady Writes. Getting this post together has felt like a little project and I've really enjoyed it actually - just call me a make-up detective! I should start by saying that I've never used fake make-up products. Nor would I, and I certainly wouldn't recommend that anyone does. When you do your research into the types of things that end up going into fake make-up...well it's enough to make you feel ill. Seeing as fake make-up is created without any regulations, no guidelines and no real need to be created with care, products on the black market are likely to cause rashes and reactions - and worse. So it's not something I'd ever recommend wearing as an actual product.

Reasons Why Every Girl Needs A Bottle Of Marc Jacobs Daisy On Her Vanity

"Think little-black-dress, but in perfume variety." (Me.)

There are some perfumes and fragrances that seem to have been around forever and yet never get old. Fragrances that you may or may not have owned yourself, but you still recognize it on others when they wear it. There are just some fragrances that you don't get tired of, and that become cult perfumes...ones we all know and love. One of these that always comes to mind is Daisy by Marc Jacobs. So here's 10 reasons why every girl needs a bottle on her vanity...

Spectrum Glam Clam - The Prettiest Brush Set Out There

Okay, I'm not going to lie... I got the Spectrum Glam Clam because quite honestly, it is the prettiest brush set out there. I'm pretty sure we can all agree on that, can't we!? There's not many brushes that beat the Spectrum ones, but there are even fewer Brush Sets that will even come close to the Glam Clam. Especially when you combine their high quality and sheer beauty together!

Winter Skin Detox

Every January I recommend having a skin detox. By that, I mean using new and intensive, dedicated skincare for a month to cleanse of impurities etc. This gives the skin a month to declog and freshen up for the year ahead. Plus seeing as most of us are recovering from the cost of Christmas, we tend to spend a lot of time at home, so it's a no brainer that January is a perfect time to detox the skin.
