Beauty Blender Dupe 💋

27th June 2016

Presenting: Skin 79 Hot Pink BB Cream! Continue Reading…

Look Fantastic Beauty Box (June ’16)

10th June 2016

So the last few Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes that have passed through my letter box (slash collected from my post depot) haven’t featured on ze blog, mainly because I was ‘sew over them'(!)… However thanks to my dedicated laziness I’ve yet to cancel my direct debit, and dyaknowwhat?! My faith in such parcels has since been restored thanks to yesterday’s delivery. Mainly because it contains a daaaycent sized eye cream sample – my achilles heel! #blessed #grateful Continue Reading…
