Origins Mega Mushroom Serum

A good serum can work wonders. Aggressive redness and a load of itchy annoyance can sometimes only be calmed down with a comforting serum. I tried the mega-mushroom offering from Origins as the sides of my cheeks had been really inflamed and itchy, and the serum promised to calm irritation. A grey coloured liquid, you…

Nail Hero Trio

As a recovered nail biter, I’m all about products that inject life into my previously nibbled nubs. Now sporting something a little longer, I like to use the same products that helped me grow my nails to now maintain the condition and strength of them. There’s a trio of hero products that are a constant…

Snip Snip

I told you this was going to happen! Ah voilà… World, meet my new ‘do.Do you like it? I really fancied something much shorter as I mentioned in my last hair post I was getting a bit sick of having to put a whole night aside to wash and dry my hair (I used to…

Mane Control

Recently, I’ve come to find a selection of haircare products that produce excellent results, so what better way to share them than in a consolidated blog post! Long, thick hair needs heavy duty care – but my eczema can make it quite difficult to find good haircare products that don’t irritate my scalp. I’ve got…

It’s no secret I’m fond of a smoked-out eye, however when the weather starts to brighten up I always feel like giving one of my favourite looks a shake up. Grey is a great way to add a smoky eye to your Spring make-up repertoire for a subtle eye look. I also spotted some shades…

OPI Nail Envy

If you’ve seen the original OPI Nail Envy, you’re probably wondering why mine is orange! I treated myself to OPI Nail Envy just before Christmas, after struggling with growing my nails.
