Jessica Phenom Does Autumn & Winter

I've said many times that without my nails done, I feel naked. I can't remember having bare nails for longer than a day or so and usually only then because I can't decide what colour to go for next! I love gel nails and used to get them done all the time because hey, there's nothing worse than chipped nails right? But I don't have a lot of spare time these days, which means I'm doing my nails myself again a lot more. Which is where the new collections from Jessica come in...

Three Skincare Products To Combat Winter Stressed Skin

I'm still not entirely sure when autumn begins and ends, but this year it certainly seems to have flown by, doesn't it? I swear that autumn usually lasts a lot longer than it has done this year, and I found myself with my heating switched 'on' quite a while ago. There's a certain chill in the air, and it's not so much the fun, autumnal, warm chill, but more...freezing! So that got me to thinking about winter skincare and how different seasons see our skin require different kinds of care.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

When it comes to perfume, I'm as girlie and feminine as they come. I like sensuous perfumes, and fragrances that are delicate yet sultry. I like classic blends that pair themselves with elegance - so Flowerbomb will always be one of my trademark scents.

Monthly Favourites: The Autumn Edit

I have tried some really fantastic products recently, in fact, far too many to put in a monthly favourites post! It seems like the beauty world is coming alive again with fantastic new launches and ranges, which I'm loving after what seemed to be a slow few months over the summer. What this has meant for me, is that I've been trying some really fun products and I've now compiled a seasonal favourites instead - so this is my Monthly Favourites: The Autumn Edit. Enjoy!

How To Get Fuller Lips Without Fillers

I've never been too worried about my lips. They're one part of my face that I quite like at the moment, and don't feel the need to mess with them too much. However loads of my friends have had lip fillers over the past few years, so I've become more and more intrigued by getting a fuller looking pout. Being the good (nosey) friend that I am, I've always taken a closer look when my friends have had their fillers and I'm not going to deny that I'm surprised the lengths some of them have gone to for 'better' lips. Two of my friends had fillers that left lumps in their lips - actual lumps that you could feel. And another friend had them done too much and cried afterwards when she realised how long she'd be stuck with lips that, quite honestly, looked too big for her face...

I Started A Business!

As some of you will have seen, a few weeks ago I launched a business! Yes, apparently I was totally in my right mind when I decided that now was the right time to take the plunge...because you know, it clearly wasn't enough having a newborn, a 7 year old, a full time blog, freelance work, a house and a man-child to take care of. Apparently I thought that I had so much spare time in-between all these things that starting a business was a fabulous idea! I'm being sarcastic, because yes, my life is very full these days, but launching Letter Writes is something I've been working on for a while and something I've nurtured from it's idea stage to life. It's my other baby, and I'm so proud of it.

Five Reasons I Love The Too Faced Melted Latex Lipsticks

As one of my favourite brands, Too Faced can do no wrong in my eyes. I have yet to try anything from them that disappoints, and my Too Faced collection is bigger than any other brand in my make-up stash!

KIKO Fall 2.0

KIKO have to be one of my favourite affordable beauty brands. They come out with new collections all the time, which keeps things fluid - and it means there's always something new to add to my collection. They also know what works and what doesn't, so you'll find the perfect collections for all occasions and skin types. I like how their ranges vary from the essentials, to something more out-there and bold. Their new Fall 2.0 collection recently launched and it's an absolutely beauty for autumn make-up essentials...

Build Your Own Beauty Box With Latest In Beauty

Everyone has seen those amazing beauty boxes you can get - the ones in collaboration with celebrities and big blog and YouTube stars. They fly off the shelves (or sell out on websites!) faster than you can blink, and always seem to be a mark of success for the person who's collaboration it is. If it's a blogger, it's like they've made it when they get a collaboration like that. Well, that's what I think anyway! But now everyone can match that thrill by creating their own beauty box with Latest In Beauty.

Kiehl's x Matthew McConaughey Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream - In Partnership With Autism Speaks

As a beauty blogger, nothing makes me happier than when some of my favourite brands will work in partnership with a deserving cause. It's something that truly warms my heart; when beauty brands with a huge and loyal fan base choose to lend their platforms to benefit those affected by any type of illness or disability. So I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to talk about the Kiehl's x Matthew McConaughey Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream. The campaign is in partnership with Autism Speaks, which is one of the charities very close to my heart.

When Fragrance Meets Laundry

*This is a sponsored post*

As a fragrance lover, my dressing table is jam-packed with perfume bottles, body sprays, scented oils and even an ever growing stack of candles. You could say that I'm a bit of an addict when it comes to scented products - if it smells lovely, then I'll want it. I don't know why I'm so indulgent when it comes to fragrance - I never leave the house without perfume, always have scented candles burning to scent my home and I'm also forever on the hunt for gorgeous smelling anything - from shampoo to fabric softener. If it can be made to smell good, then I'm all for it.
