All About Sigma

DSC04102I’ve recently discovered the brand Sigma. I’ve heard lots of other You Tubers and beauty bloggers talk about it because of the amazing quality brushes, but little did I know that they also sell make-up. Swoon. I’ve long had my eyes on this make-up brush set, that also come in other adorable colours, beside this awesome blue that I heart. The best part is they ship worlwide so no one has to be jealous of anyone. Pretty sweet huh?!



The Week #14

So Happy Easter! What’s left of it anyway! I hope you had a wonderful day, whether you stuffed your face with chocolate or did something more productive ( I made a toffee apple crumble!) The weekend literally seems to fly by lately, but I have to say Game of Thrones has made me look forward to Sunday’s! Plus I’ve been on it with my Purre Barre workouts at the weekend, and I think I may just be seeing results. This work out is amazing FYI! I’m sure if I was also dieting I would see results even faster. Curse on you Trader Joes Truffle cheese!

This Week:

* I loved this post about how to make your own lip balm. I’ve got a mini tin of Altoids that I know just what to do with once I’ve eaten them all!

* I decided it’s time to do some Game of Thrones home work. I think that this site will be just the ticket to some much needed revision!

* I was so excited that D&G have brought out a new line of make-up – very keen to try out this stash of beauty goodness.

*I’ve been on what seems like the never ending hunt for new more grown up, office appropriate clothes, cos you just can’t rock daisy dukes to the office! The Sezane brand has some pretty spot on classic items that fit perfectly with what I’m going for. I’ve also been loving the Extra Petite blog written by the effortlessly style Jean, for inspiration for outfits – a petite gal like me. It’s all about classic items that you can pair with different pieces. Easy said then done though!

Have a wonderful week!


Urban Decay Naked 3 – The Day Time Look


The latest offering from Urban Decay was of course the beautiful Naked Palette 3, and in my opinion there haven’t really been many palettes that have out done it! Seeing as we all have this infamous palette, it’s important to think about all the different looks we can create with it. All too often we buy palettes and only use one or two colours from it. That’s no good, and I’m here to change your ways! So I recently brought you the Naked Palette 3 evening look, but this one  is all about using the palette for every day make-up. Natural, pretty and very wearable even to work- should you have the time in the morning!



Old School Beauty


I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the ‘old school’ beauty brands that I used to use as a teen. The affordable go to brands, that made you feel hopeful that oh yes, your skin would look way better after using it. I literally used to have mini heart palpitations filling my basket with beauty goodies in Boots( a drug store for my US friends.) I started to think that while I always focus on the ‘higher end’ newer brands, I’m sure there are some good skin care items I used to use that I’ve since moved on from. (more…)


The Best Budget Face Wash


Ladies and gents, drum roll please… I think… nope, I’m pretty sure I’ve found the best budget face wash – ever. Scrape jaw off floor, because yes, you read that correctly. It is quite the statement I’ll admit it, and I don’t like to throw around ‘the best’ titles all too often (unless we’re talking food) but this face wash really impressed.
