April 10, 2015
amie-gem-quinphonic

Photo © Ian Black Well we may not have been kidnapped or fallen off the face of the earth, but we have definitely been held prisoner by our own lives most recently. Those of you who have been following us may have wondered where we have been and it’s been driving us crazy being away from our very own ‘blogosphere’. The truth is, that we’ve been putting a lot of our time and effort into the band and haven’t really…

Free Nails Inc. polishes with Glamour

November 11, 2014
Free Nails Inc with Glamour

  This month Glamour are really spoiling us with four very autumnal polishes from Nails Inc – Tate, Hanover Square, Marylebone Mews and Wigmore Street.  They are all absolutely gorgeous shades and worth £11 each, so considering the magazine is only £2.00 you’re getting £44.00 of nail polishes for £8 (which is far too much of a bargain for anyone to resist I’m sure!) All four were instant must-haves for me, but I think the very vampy purple hues of Wigmore Street have stolen…

  Ever notice how you see a lot of posts about “Getting back into blogging” or “Getting your blogging groove back” around this time of year? I can totally appreciate the slump of activity that happens over summer and then the sudden rush of content once the new school year starts. I’m a real (sort of) grown up with a round-the-year job so it’s not so much that I go home for summer or enjoy a flood of new inspirational uni…

I know that both Gem and I have said in some of our last few posts that we are on a spending ban, but when we found out we could grab a Ciaté bargain, we just couldn’t help ourselves. (It’s 100% Gemma’s fault for actually telling me about this.) If you haven’t seen these already, you can grab yourselves a free Ciaté Nail Polish and Caviar set with the June issue of Marie Claire, worth £10 each. Each issue of…

Hellbent for Lipstick Birthday Beauty Haul

  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you might have seen that it was my birthday yesterday! I had a lovely day with family and friends that started with a lovely elegant brunch and ended in a drunken mess of a house party. There were quite a few beauty based gifts given so I thought I’d do a quick post to share my treasure with you and give a hint as to some of the reviews coming up…

We’d decided on 100 Bloglovin’ followers and low and behold,…

MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer Review

March 12, 2014
mua-luxe-lip-lacquer-2

I’ve seen a host of reviews on this product all talking about how amazing it is and with the temptation of the shade “Atomic” (you’ve guessed it, a bright red) being too much for me to resist, I ended up buying this a few weeks ago. Usually not being a fan of wand style lip applications, I was sceptical to begin with. I tried it out the day I bought it and slapped it on quickly, whilst running late for…

Valentine Grinch or Keen Enthusiast?

February 13, 2014
valentines-post

Once again this soppy love-fest is upon us and tomorrow will bring about mixed feelings between all of those in my social circle. Once a Christian festival, I have no idea how this evolved into the commercial day that it is widely celebrated as these days. Not usually being one for celebrating such traditions, and since I lead more of a Pagan lifestyle which incorporates a lot of different festivals I don’t usually bat an eyelid. Despite this, the day…
