How am I still catching up on so many blogs? Where does time go? How is it Birchbox time again!

Birchbox May 2014 Review

May 13, 2014

It seems Birchbox have stuck with their minimal packaging and have now taken to a smaller cardboard package in favor of their previous outer box. This is somewhat of a shame, since I reused mine for storing lots of different bits and bobs, but this month has made up for it, because the Birchbox itself is absolutely gorgeous, they have teamed up with Harper’s Bazaar and packed it full of lovely items. Benefit – They’re Real! Mascara – 3g sample…

Benefit Dallas Boxed Blush

February 26, 2014

  As a lover of all things Benefit I don’t know how I lasted so long without one of their signature box blushes! Dallas could be considered somewhere between a blush and bronzer, and as a pale girl I’m so happy to finally have my hands on a bronzer that doesn’t make me look like I’ve been tangoed! Benefit describes this as “An outdoor glow for an indoor girl” and it certainly lives up to that. Just a quick sweep…

Contouring here I come … (featuring W7 & Benefit)

January 15, 2014

  I have been most spoilt over the festive season. My dad Neil brought me a benefit tin which I was absolutely over the moon with (I’m guessing it has something to do with his beautiful daughter pointing him in the right direction and I don’t mean my good self!) the contents of which contained the Hoola bronzer. Gem also brought me Candy Floss highlighter and Africa bronzer by W7. Although the Africa was largely due to the beautiful animal…

Me, Myself and my boxes …

July 11, 2013

I blame Gemma. For a long time, I have tried to resist the temptation of beauty boxes. A few months ago, Gemma gave in and purchased her first. Unfortunately, she gave me a demonstration of how she opened her box when it came. She had even resealed the package with the bow so I could satisfyingly pull the ribbon apart to reveal a selection of surprise beauty products. Not only was the ribbon pulled, but so were my makeup and…
