Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette First Look & Swatches

I'm a big Charlotte Tilbury fan, that's no secret. I love the eyeshadow palettes, lip products and I swear by the Magic Foundation. I've got quite a sizeable collection of products from the brand and I'm not one to shy away from buying more. It's no secret that Charlotte Tilbury products come with a price tag, however for me, you get what you pay for, and the performance of the products justifies the price - every time. Some of the products are absolute staples in my collection, so when I heard about the Instant Eye Palette, I knew from the get-go I'd be investing in it. Plus, eyeshadow palettes are my weakness and I can't resist them!

Can Powder Foundation Match Up To Liquid?

As you all know, I'm a full coverage foundation kinda gal. I love full coverage foundation and won't really try anything that doesn't offer a full coverage base. Having oily skin means I'm also that bit more particular about the foundations I try because my pores are like pot holes, and I need foundation to keep them, and the excess oil at bay.

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.

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 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

*This is a sponsored post*

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

If you're like I was, you might not know that 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...
