Intu Derby A/W Fashion Show

I’ve been a little bit off the radar over the last couple of weeks when it comes to blogging but on Saturday I was invited to the A/W fashion show in Intu Derby so of course I jumped at the chance to get out and get me in the mood for writing a bit more! I met a few other blogging gals there and we all sat in a little roped-off section at the side feeling all important and exclusive. The staff at Intu were all so chatty and lovely to us – I’m a fan of anybody willing to feed me muffins and hot chocolate – and they were sure to let us know about all of the other bits and bobs going on throughout the day!

A Trip to TK Maxx

There’s a pretty big perk to where I work and that’s how close I am to everything! Lunch breaks are the perfect time to sneak in a cheeky little shopping trip and last week I went a little bit further afield over to TK Maxx!It was only a quick trip (obviously) so I avoided the clothes like the plague and stuck to the beauty and homeware instead. I only really came out with 3 things in the end, but at least I didn’t spend half as much as I would have in a proper trip! Continue reading “A Trip to TK Maxx”

Home Spa Necessities

If you’re anything like me – a bit poor and very tight with the money you do have – then spa days are reserved for special occasions and gifts. But, everyone loves a good pamper and it’s easy enough to recreate at home with a few bits you have lying around or things that can be found pretty easily in any shopping centre! I always have pamper supplies lying around, ready and waiting for my next opportunity to chill – and I’d definitely recommend building up a stash yourself! Continue reading “Home Spa Necessities”

L’Oreal True Match Foundation

It’s been a while since I last bought a proper foundation and I thought with the cold weather looming it was probably the best time to start my hunt for a foundation that will actually match my whiter than whiter complexion! I was using Maybelline’s BB Cream for a good while before repurchasing the Lush Colour Supplement in Jackie Oates and they’re quite different from each other, so I wanted to find a happy medium – a light foundation that still gives a decent coverage and evens out my skin tone!

Beauty on a Budget: Covershoot Cosmetics

So about a month ago now Covershoot Cosmetics contacted me to see if I wanted to give a few products a go and well, here we are. I wasn’t quite expecting so much to arrive – they did say they’d send a ‘box’ but I ended up with 5 products at my door! I have tried one of these before but I’ll get into that a little more later on, but this is definitely a super cheap brand that won’t set you back even if you’re on a budget!

REN

I’m all about budget beauty as you probably already guessed but when it comes to skincare I’m more likely to loosen the purse strings and splash out a little bit more. Now I’m not talking hundreds of pounds, I don’t have that, but I’m willing to spend up to around £40 given that the product is actually worth the price! A lot of the time I’ve found that some of the more pricey products aren’t really worth it – especially ones for ‘all skin types’ – I don’t trust that – so when REN offered to send me their new Flash Hydro-Boost I was a little dubious as to whether it’d actually do much.But, I’ve given it a few weeks (as I do with every skincare product) and I’m pleasantly surprised!

August Favourites

I’m always buying new products – especially on payday – and while quite a few of them are misses, a lot of them quickly become some of my new favorite items! Throughout August I’ve tried some new products, kept up with my usual routines and discovered some gems I had hidden away in the big beauty box under my bed so this month’s favorites are good mixture of new, regular favorites and new discoveries!
