Michael Kors Sexy Blossom Review


I'm a perfume addict, and a perfume snob. I've got really high standards when it comes to the perfumes I pick. And in fact it was only yesterday that I was asked what my favourite fragrances are. The first thing I replied with was "Michael Kors fragrances are some of my favourites" and it's true because the range of scents are just spot on what I look for in a fragrance: musky, sweet and girly. And all of the Michael Kors fragrances I've got are that little bit unusual and different. I've got so many on my dressing table but I've always got room for new additions because I've yet to find one that I don't like.

My 5 MAC Must Haves #MACMUSTHAVES


I've used MAC products since I was a novice in make-up. They were the brand I aspired to own as I learned to love make-up, and as soon as I could afford it (and even when I couldn't!) I would spend all my Saturday-job earnings on their make-up. Nothing's really changed since then - I still buy practically every new product they come out with, drool over their eyeshadows and swatch practically every lipstick every time I go in store. MAC are one of my Holy Grail brands - and I know that will never change. What can I say, I'm a MAC girl through and through.

GlamGlow For Daily Skincare - Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer


Everyone's heard about the GlamGlow face masks - they're so well regarded and highly performing that everyone's been intrigued about them since day one. I'm a full on GlamGlow addict and have been obsessed with their Supermud for months. Then they released their Gravitymud which is the silver peel-off one that everyone loves...me included. How novelty is a peel-off mask that actually makes skin feel good?! I still love using it! Anyway, as a fully fledged member of the 'I heart GlamGlow' club, I had been waiting, just waiting, for them to release a daily skincare range. And when they did, I was first in line to try it out - because if their face masks and muds perform that well, then I had really high hopes for the daily skincare too.

Norma & Dorothy - The Best Place for Personalised Stationery & Gifts


When it comes to stationery, I'm obsessed with all things pretty. I love to look at pretty cards, stationery, prints and gifts that I can buy for every occasion - and just for myself and my home. I love those independent shops and boutiques that seem to carry the most beautiful products that you just won't find anywhere else and one of my newest online discoveries for this was Norma & Dorothy.

The Sunday Riley Duo For Problem Skin


Having oily skin and large pores which more often resemble mini-potholes, I'd never really thought about using a face oil. To me (stupidly) I'd always assumed that an oil probably wouldn't work for me, because I already have more than enough oil on my face - which is what I'm trying to overcome. So I'd not been sure if the Sunday Riley products would work for me... but as I heard more and more about them, and read more about how they worked, I became really keen to give them a go myself, as it appeared that even people like me with oily skin could benefit from them. Plus the constant rave reviews is hard to ignore and I started to get really excited about trying them for myself.

5 Minute Beauty Treats From Very.co.uk


If you're like I was, you might not know that Very.co.uk have a huge Beauty Department. More than that, they stock all the top brands across 'drugstore' and counter alternatives, meaning you can get all your beauty fixes in one place. I was genuinely surprised at how vast the range is and how many fantastic products they stocked, and my wish-list seems to be extending by the day!

August Favourites


August has been the most eventful month in Lady Writes Land and it's all because Baby Writes #2 arrived. Yep, you've probably all seen my social media and the introduction of Hayden Oliver, but yes, his arrival (three weeks early) made August super eventful in our house! Besides the sleepless nights and bottle feeds, August had also been a lovely time to try some new products in-between baby time and I'm super excited to show you what I've been loving the most this month...

Four Beauty Products You Didn't Know You Needed


I love trying new beauty brands and products, and am quite often really surprised to find some absolute treasures hidden amongst the products that I kindly get sent to test. Prior to Baby Writes #2 arriving two weeks ago, I'd been trialling some really interesting products and because of this, I've found a couple of absolute gems that I really wanted to share with you guys. These four products have rated the highest on my list and are well worth checking out.

Save or Splurge - Colourpop Fem Rosa 'She' Eyeshadow Palette


When it comes to Colourpop, I'm a big fan. Their Super Shock Eyeshadows are amazing, with some of the best pigmentation I've found. I find the shimmer, glitter and satin finishes to be excellent quality with high colour payoff and for the price point of only $5 each, they are worth every penny - and more. The unfortunate thing about Colourpop for us UK beauty lovers, is that we're often restricted with International Shipping, so usually I tend to do one big haul when there's a shipping offer on, and that's it for a while. With shipping and customs it can work out really expensive, even with low price point products, so it has to be justifiable - right girls?

Five To Try From Cover FX

The Summer Body Edit



When it comes to the summer, our beauty requirements change to suit the temperature, the fluctuation in humidity and hopefully the introduction of a lot more sunshine in our lives! Whether it's our need for make-up products that last longer under the glare of the holiday sunshine, or the need for a constant and reliable source of sun protection, there's just so much to change up in your beauty regime come the summer.

The Three Types of Ghost Perfume


Nothing sparks memories of my youth more than Ghost perfume. It was the first perfume I was ever bought and I still remember unwrapping it on Christmas morning as I made that jump from body sprays to perfume. I felt so sophisticated and classy and since that day I've made sure that no matter what, I always have a spritz of perfume on before I go out. It's one of my daily essentials and I genuinely feel a bit bare without perfume. But that's what a good perfume does - it inspires you and it brings back memories from a time long since forgotten.

The New Essentials From Too Faced - Natural Love Palette & Love Light Highlighters


My love for Too Faced is never ending. I think every time they launch a new range, I'm there with bells on. (I know I told you all about the 5am alarm I set to get my hands on the Sweet Peach Palette didn't I?!) But for me the prettiest collection so far has to be their Natural Love range which launched this spring with the most amazing eyeshadow palette and matching highlighters. Girlie, feminine, pretty ...and everything I love about Too Faced, all rolled in to one. So naturally, I had to have it all.

The Five Affordable Brands You Need In Your Make-Up Bag


As a self-confessed make-up addict, beauty hoarder and compulsive make-up shopper, I like to think I have a pretty well rounded scope on make-up and beauty brands. And while I often buy high-end and counter brand products, as a Mummy already and with Baby #2 due very soon, this year I've really enjoyed getting more acquainted with some of the budget and drugstore brands. I have to admit that in previous years I've strayed away from these brands completely so it's been wonderful to have found some truly amazing products from brands like L'Oreal, Rimmel and many more recently. Not just because it seems that budget brands have hugely upped their game (they have) but also because they now create whole ranges to rival the top-end brands, but at a fraction of the price. And who can afford to turn that down?

Zoeva Basic Moment Collection


I wanted to find a really sassy and eye-catching title for this blog post, but quite frankly the products themselves do all the talking, don't they? One look at the Zoeva Basic Moment Collection and I fell in love with it because it's just so endearing to look it. It's one of those collections that's been catching the eye of many a make-up lover. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it's probably my favourite collection from Zoeva thus far.

The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Dream Duo


If there's one thing I look forward to about the summer months, it's the re-arrival of Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess. Nothing screams 'summer beauty' more than the Bronze Goddess range and the fragrance is one of my most reminiscent scents - bringing back all my summer vibes and memories in  an instant. It's fair to say that the Bronze Goddess collection is one of my yearly favourites from Estee Lauder.

Top 5 Pink Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks


Urban Decay are one of my favourite brands. Which won't come as a shock if you've read my blog and seen my social media channels. I love their products and can't get enough of them - their palettes are some of my all-time favourites, their lipsticks some of the best and their new skincare and beauty essentials are fabulous too. I just don't think there's much you can do wrong with Urban Decay goodies in your collection. Lip wise I love their Vice range - who doesn't? And I first reviewed them a while back here. So when I recently decided to try out the Vice Liquid Lipsticks, I was pretty excited. Could they beat the trusty lipstick varieties?

The Best Becca Highlight Shade For Pale Skin


Having pale skin can be a bit of a pain when it comes to highlighting. There's all these amazing products in the highlighting arena from palettes that look like they belong to a goddess, right through to cream, powder and liquid varieties too. And there's no denying that highlighting is now a key make-up trend, with more and more brands extending their collections. The sad thing is that for pale skinned people like me, it can be so hard to find something that doesn't work against us rather than for us when it comes to highlighting. Even more difficult is if, like me too, you have oily skin as well. Because highlighting is then quite often not your friend either. This is the reason why I'm forever buying new highlighters - I'm constantly in search of The One. The perfect highlighter for pale skin.

The PR's Guide To Media Packs (Why You Need One and How To Make One)


As a PR I work with a lot of bloggers, so it's fair to say that in my time I've seen a huge amount of Blog Media Packs. But after recent chats with my friends, I realised how many questions people had about Media Packs. And not just about how to make one, but also what you should include (and what you shouldn't) and also a lot of people asking why you'd even need one in the first place. So last month when I tweeted asking if it would be useful for you guys to have a post dedicated to Media Packs, the response was so overwhelmingly 'YES' that I've been working on putting this comprehensive guide together, since. And I hope that bloggers of every niche will find it useful. I've also created a dedicated Pin for Pinterest at the bottom of the post, so please, if you find this useful, could you Pin it on Pinterest? Thanks!

June Favourites


How is it that another month - a whole month - has flown by? June seems to have barely greeted us and now it's already bidding us farewell. Scattered with some horrific stories, the country overall hasn't had the best June, so for that reason I'm glad to see the end of it. Plus that heat-wave last week was just a big old no-no for the pregnant among us. However, June has been pretty special for me, in that I've tried, and found, some amazing new products this month. Some which I've loved using and wish I'd known about sooner.

Falling In Love With Buxom Cosmetics


I remember Buxom Cosmetics from the very first time they were on the shelves here in the UK. Known for their sultry and seductive plumping lip products, they were one of the first brands I tried when I was attempting to get fuller looking lips. However it wasn't meant to be for Buxom at the time and I don't remember when it was exactly, but suddenly you couldn't get their products here anymore. When I was in New York last summer I bought a couple of bits in Sephora, which reminded me just how much I loved the brand. So when they launched their UK come-back this year, I was pretty excited to see what they had lined up.

MAC x Steve J & Yoni P - The Most Fun You'll Have With MAC Packaging, Guaranteed!


When it comes to their limited edition collections, MAC are well known for knocking it out of the park with their ranges. Not just with the products, but with the packaging too. It's one of the things that makes me fall in love with their one-off ranges actually, I mean, did you see the Mariah Carey packaging? Goals. And then there's the fun they have with ranges like Trolls and Vibe Tribe too. If anyone can absolutely nail a limited edition range, it's MAC - and one of their latest - MAC X Steve J & Yoni P is no exception.

The New Addition To My GlamGlow Collection - Gravitymud


You know how much I adore the GlamGlow masks if you follow me on social media - literally every time anyone asks about face mask recommendations, I'm there shouting about GlamGlow. Any skin complaint? I'll likely recommend GlamGlow for it, because within their range there's a mud mask for everyone. I featured a couple of the masks a few months ago here, and have still been using them religiously, and I just replaced my empty Supermud pot because I use it so often and can't be without it now.

First Look & Swatches - Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette!


I can't tell you how excited I am to be writing this! As soon as I saw the pictures of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette a few weeks ago, I knew I'd be getting it. Not just because I am a slave to every eyeshadow palette that Urban Decay release, but also because the colours in the palette are stunning and completely up my street. Warm tones are my thang. The pre-release caused a lot of us beauty addicts stress this week, mostly due to the fact that it sold out in minutes first time round, but I tried to personally help as many people out as I could, sharing links etc - because everyone who wants this, deserves to have it in their make-up stash. And fortunately the lovely people at Urban Decay reloaded stock half an hour after their first batch sold out, so most people who wanted it, managed to get it. (For those of you who didn't, it officially launches online on July 27th.)

Here's How You Should Be Using Your Beauty Blender


Beauty sponges have become a key make-up tool in recent years. Every beauty brand seems to have their own version of this application essential nowadays and you can even find budget versions for only a couple of pounds - meaning just about everyone has at least attempted to apply their make-up with one. However the original, the one the others want to be, will always be the Beauty Blender.

The Best Of The Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes


Eyeshadow palettes are the way to this girls heart.

That's no secret. What is a secret though (from my boyfriend) is my collection, which grows all the time and will likely continue to do so until I run out of space to stash everything. Even then, I'd never stop buying them, trying them or loving them. Thus is the life of an eyeshadow palette addict. My latest additions are no exception and are now proudly sitting in the pride of place in my make-up drawers, all showing off their sheer gorgesousness, just calling me to use them all the time. Yep, I'm talking about the Smashbox Cover Shot palettes.

May Favourites


I feel like I've blinked and gone from January to May - anyone else?! This year is absolutely charging past, each month is quickly ticked off the calendar and suddenly we're almost in summer without even realising. It's clearly one of those years that's going to fly by. I can't say that I mind though because I've crammed so much in to the past five months, including trying some amazing products. My Monthly Favourites posts are always some of my most fun to write because I try to mix up the products I've been trailing, just to keep things fresh. It also means I'm forever trying new products and brands in search of those amazing things that are so good they need to be shouted about! And this month is a knock-out.

KKW x Kylie Cosmetics - Swatches, Review & Verdict


If you follow me on Twitter then you'll know that as soon as I heard about the Kylie Cosmetics KKW collab, I was excited. Not because I'm a fan of the Kylie range (I'm not) and not because I'm a Kardashian superfan (I'm not.) But I was excited because the collab was going to feature Kylie's first ever creme liquid lipstick formula. And as a creme lip finish kinda gal, this made me know for sure I wanted to get my hands on it.

5 Feel Good Beauty Products For Right Now


When it comes to spring, I like to overhaul my make-up and beauty regime. But this year seems to have been lacking in...actual spring. The constant rain, grey skies and cooler weather have meant most of us have been stuck wearing our coats and boots longer than usual and I for one have stuck to my autumn/winter make-up palette more, with warm, dark toned eye looks and deeper lipsticks. However it's sunny outside today, so I'm taking all the spring vibes I can get, and using it as an excuse to talk about 5 feel good beauty products for right now - because if we can't rely on the weather as a pick-me-up right now, we can always rely on our beauty products!

Clarins Pore Perfecting Foundation & Kit


It's no secret that my favourite foundation finish, is matte. I'm the oily skin kinda gal, which means I have all sorts of problems when it comes to finding make-up that doesn't just slide off my face by mid-afternoon. It's my biggest bug-bear in make-up - I love the dewy look and adore pretty highlighters, but for me it's not long before they leave me looking shiny - rather than glowing. And it's not a pretty sight! So I have to be careful what I use on my face as a base.

Ask The Experts - Top Beauty Bloggers Share Their Beauty Tips, Tricks & Hacks



The one thing I love about blogging and am constantly reminded of every time I go online, is how many talented bloggers and individuals there are out there. The blogasphere is full to the seams of people absolutely nailing their niche, storming social media and all round owning what they're doing. It gives me such pleasure to see bloggers of all sizes creating content that shows how excellent they are in their niche, and I've discovered some real talent over the last few years as a beauty blogger. What I like is that blogging gives people an outlet that allows them to position themselves as an expert in their field - something which is reinforced with engagement and interaction from their very loyal audience.

It's the lipstick I've been excited about ever since Fleur revealed she was working with MAC on a lipstick. I absolutely love her style and she often wears make-up in the same shades that I like, so I knew she'd create a shade of lipstick that I'd love. And over the past few weeks as pictures have come out showing the lipstick in all its glory, I knew with even more certainty that I was going to buy it. I was determined not to miss out, as I have done with other limited edition products, and then regretted it big style. So I made it my mission to make sure I got one - and I did!

How to Beat Under Eye Bags - With Estee Lauder


My Mum always told me that the eyes are the first place on your face to show the signs of aging and she was right. The skin around our eyes is the most thin part of our face and so it's here that we show little lines forming first. I'm 30 this year and it's only as that number approaches that I'm starting to inspect those laughter lines a little bit closer than I have done before - just to ensure that when the wrinkles do break through, I'll be ready.

The Two Palettes You Need For Summer - Zoeva Matte Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette and Cream Contour Spectrum


It's so hard to envisage summer as being right around the corner when this morning I had to pull back out my winter boots and scarf for work. But the fact is that now we're in May it (hopefully!) won't be long before things warm up for more than a day or so before getting chilly again. This means sunshine, holidays and lots of fun summer trends to keep up with. Summer also brings along with it the need for a few extra's in your make-up collection. As the tans become more common, the need for bronzer gets bigger and when we crack out those bikinis and one-pieces it's always a fun opportunity to experiment with some brighter make-up looks to match. With that in mind there's two palettes that are absolutely essential for summer...

L'Oreal Infallible Foundation Review


It's the foundation that everyone's been talking about. The L'Oreal Infallible collection has made big waves in beauty and if make-up is your thing then you'll likely have experienced the same curiosity as me. In fact, even if make-up isn't your thing then I think you'll have been exposed to just as much excited chatter about this range, in particular the foundation. It seems that literally everyone has been talking about it - which is usually the time when I jump right in and see what it's like for myself. I'd  heard the opinions, read the reviews and wondered - can a drug store brand really outperform counter brands and succeed where others have failed?

New In: Mascara


Mascara is one of those staple pieces that even those who wear minimal make-up will usually have. Everyone's got a mascara or two (or twenty if you're me!) laying around right? I like to think that I've had a good amount of testing experience with mascaras, because I've tried so many in search of the perfect one. (I wrote a post on my Top 5 High-end Mascaras.) This means that I usually know quite quickly when trying one out whether it's going to be any good or not. In the sake of keeping things fair, unless one is absolutely pants, then I'll usually give it a good go before making my final verdict. But the sad truth is that for me, I'm hard to please with mascara. Unless it really wows me then I'm unlikely to repurchase and will usually just end up seeing out the tube as a bottom lash mascara, while I switch to something else for the top. Sad but true for all the ill-performing mascara out there.

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.

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.

Top Tips To Affording A Beauty Addiction


If you're anything like me, you're a sucker for make-up and beauty products. From cute and funky make-up brushes, to gorgeous eyeshadow palettes and new treats in the skincare world - I want it all. I literally spend a large portion of my time thinking about make-up I want to buy, watching YouTube tutorials on the latest trends and reading blog posts talking about the new products on the market. The downside of having an expensive make-up habit is that it's really hard to justify spending out fortunes on make-up. Especially when there's bills to pay, life to afford, and in my case - a baby on the way!
