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!
