Looking for a gentle highlighter on a budget? I might just have the answer, and it's one I absolutely love!

Wet n Wild Colour Icon Bronzer Reserve Your Cabana as a Highlighter

Hi everyone. Happy Halloween!

Today, I'm sharing with you a product that's an absolute gem in my view, and one that I can't stop wearing despite owning some real high-end beauties in my collection - Wet n Wild Colour Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana - but not as a bronzer - as a highlighter! If you're after a gentle highlighter on a budget and have really struggled to find one, then this one could definitely fit the bill. 

If you use Wet n Wild on a regular basis, you'll probably be familiar with the 3 shades that form part of the Colour Icon bronzer range. A shade called Reserve Your Cabana is the lightest of the 3 and was specifically formulated for people with very pale skin tones, but to my discovery earlier on this year this makes a fabulous everyday highlighter as well.

Sharing My Entire Nyx Lip Collection, including swatches

my entire nyx lipstick collection

Hello, fellow beauty fanatics!

So here it is, the post you've all been waiting for - or at least I hope?!

When it comes to lipsticks from the drugstore, Nyx is one of my all time favourites brands for finding a whole variety of on-trend shades. I recently posted a picture on Instagram sharing all my Nyx liquids and lipsticks asking whether I should write a blog post on them, and going by the number of likes, it seems that idea was well received. If you're not following me on Instagram yet and like makeup themed photos, then do pop over and give us a nudge. As I too, am always looking for new makeup laden photos to follow.

Lush | Lip Scrub & Shampoo Bar

lush haul

Many moons ago, I worked near Lakeside shopping centre where there was a Lush store which I never visited, (it's still there by the way.)  As most shopping centre's are, everything was under one roof, which for me made the process to shop at Lush quite difficult and off putting, as I felt it contained the heavy scents from the store that much more! It was so overpowering, it would knock me for six every time I walked past.

Since moving to the East coast, my nearest is now Norwich - still heavily scented mind you but it's much more nose friendly as this ones on the high street, so that heavy scent is able to evaporate that bit more. On my last visit, I picked up a shampoo bar and a lip scrub.

Discovering Sheet Masks and How I Got 11 For Under a Tenner!

Tony Moly Sheet Masks

Skincare treatments that involve you resembling something like "Phantom of the Opera" or a "horror movie" have become quite a regular scene on our shores for sometime now, and this is all thanks to the same region that brought you the original BB cream which is - Korea (South.)

Autumn Wish List

Thanks to my kids, the little cherubs, I'm full of cold at the mo and sound like Darth Vader! Hopefully, this'll be long gone before I go away for a little holiday, and thought in the meantime I'll create my very first wish list full of expensive goodies to buy whilst away, here on the blog! I mean, who doesn't have expensive taste? Knowing my luck I'll probably end up adding some of these to my Christmas wish list.

Product Empties #2

Product Empties #2

Product empties is a post I always forget to do!!! I keep a little gift bag under my dressing table just for these and is often filled with everyday skincare, as to actually finish a makeup product (unless it reached holy grail status for that moment) is a once in blue moon activity! There's quite a few to get through, so I'll try and make these short and sweet!
