Studio 10 Does Christmas

Studio 10 are a brand I was introduced to earlier this year and I've been a big advocate of their products since. Innovative, a bit different from everything else, as well as high performing, I'm always excited to try more of their range. So when I saw that they were launching some new products for Christmas, I was very excited to give them a go. I'm a sucker for a good Christmas set!

A while ago I wrote The PR's Guide to Blogging and it turned out to be one of my most viewed and shared posts, ever. I got so many of you message me, tweet and comment about the post, and I've been meaning to write Part 2 for quite a while. But finally - here it is!

Christmas with Dermalogica

Dermalogica have been a brand I've relied on multiple times over the years. I've gone through skin phases that have needed really targeted skincare - from adult blemish breakouts, constantly oily skin and of course, the post pregnancy skin issues after having my son. No matter what the skin complaint, Dermalogica can be relied on to have a range that works to combat and overcome any manner of problem. Which is why their Christmas collection is perfect for everyone - you're guaranteed to find something that will suit you with their range of Gift Sets this year.

13 Steps To Preparing For Party Season

Christmas and winter doesn't just bring the prospect of snow, a mountain of mince pies and a tree filled with lights and baubles. No, it also brings party season! Between the work's Christmas party, the annual Christmas meals with friends and the after works drinks (that don't end until 2pm) - well, party season is pure fun and games. But it really can take it's toll on our skin. I'm all for that extra glass (or bottle) of bubbles during party season but between that, the late nights, and the lack of sleep...well party season can take it's toll. So to avoid the fun backfiring, there are some great ways to get party ready in no time at all.

Thierry Mugler Alien Christmas Coffret

It's no secret that Thierry Mugler is one of my favourite perfume brands, with Alien being my daily signature scent. I was absolutely over the moon this year when they finally released a matching scented candle, that meant my home smelt divine and perfectly like my favourite perfume. So naturally the Christmas selection of Alien gifts was always going to be excitedly recieved. And this was never more true than when Santa dropped of the Thierry Mugler Alien Christmas Coffret a tad early this year.

4 Steps To Winter Eyes With Estee Lauder

It barely seems like two minutes ago that I was working through my autumn eye looks, and here I am with my winter take on all things eyes! Winter is a whole new kettle of fish because it's... *leans closer* PARTY SEASON! Not just that, but colder weather means it's once again time to mix up the colours I wear on my lids, and generally go for a slight variation on the previous few months worth of eye make-up. And I LOVE changing things up.

My 2016 Holy Grail Product - La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Unifiant

This year I've been so lucky to have tried a lot of wonderful new beauty products. I've tried all sorts from skincare to make-up and everything in-between. I've found some great new products that have found their way into my everyday make-up bag and become staples in my routine. I've also naturally found some one-trick-wonders that were great for a short time, or would be great for other skin types or tones... It's been an amazing year for new beauty discoveries. Which is brilliant in every way except for finding that single product that sticks out above all the others to become the one I wanted to class as my new Holy Grail for 2016.

Better Brush Cleaning With The Sigma Dry'n Shape Brush Spa

When it comes to brush cleaning my first port of call is always Sigma. Their gloves and mats have really helped me to give my brushes a better than ever before clean. Considering I'm such a fan of their cleaning glove, I wasn't sure they could outdo it - but then their brand new Dry'n Shape Spa arrived and everything went up another gear.

Christmas Gifts For All The Family With Philips

When it comes to Christmas gifts, there's always something technical making the wish list. Between Mum, Dad, Granny and the kids there's no shortage of electricals being requested from good old Santa, and this year is no different. Especially in my house. Mostly because you can't go wrong with something for personal styling or similar - everyone needs it, most people want it and you're guaranteed to give a gift that will get used rather than sit in an unopened box for six months.

Back To Basics - With The Naked Ultimate Basics Palette

When it comes to eye shadows I'm not a less-is-more kinda gal. I love sparkle, shimmer, glitzy and something that makes my lids stand out. I use matte shades in the crease, as my transition shade and lightly dusted  across my eyes before I coat with my 'top layer' of something more shimmery as a final step. Matte colours are the base and the foundation for my eye looks, kinda like the glue that holds the whole thing together. So I have a lot of matte shades on the go, for perfectly matching crease and transition shades, and creating that elusive perfectly blended smokey eye.

Which means that the time is now to take notice of your skincare regime and make the changes your skin will thank you for.

What's New From Rimmel: The Only 1 Matte Lipstick Library

Once in a while, blogger mail pops through my letterbox that's unexpected, and its surprise delivery means I get to try something completely new with no preconceptions or expectations. A bit like being thrown in at the deep end, it's a sink or swim moment. So when this gorgeous metallic package landed on my doorstep from Rimmel recently and scattered nine new lipsticks across my desk, well, I knew I was in for a lip-smacking treat while trying them all out. (See what I did there?)
