Noted absence

Hey everyone,

I broke my New Years resolution and it is only April but a lot of things happened.

First work had an inspection by CQC (I work at a doctors surgery in IT), so that was a busy time, then I got pharyngitis and was laid up for 4 days (I still have the residual effects of it now), then on Easter Monday my cat was hit by a car and had to have his back leg amputated (we don't have pet insurance so the cost has skyrocketed), he's OK so don't panic he's adapting well to the change and he just had his stitches out today.


The bandage has come off (came off last Friday)

I am hoping to be back blogging the 1st May with a double favourites and a double empties on the 2nd May and hopefully will be able to get into the blogging swing of things (just have to find my blogging notebook)

Thanks for tuning in

The Body Shop Big and Curvy Waterproof Mascara

As you know I am a massive mascara fan anything that is going to make my lashes look good, I am also always on the lookout for a good waterproof mascara (my collection is lacking mascara of the waterproof variety).

While I was in The Body Shop I decided to have a try at their makeup and picked up the Big and Curvy mascara in the waterproof version.

This mascara is the bomb, it seriously is unremovable it lasts for ages on the lashes (which can be a pain as you can be at the mirror for ages to try and take this stuff off), but I love it, because I know i I am going out on a night out, or to the beach, or anywhere where there is the minute chance I am going to get wet or sweat I know this stuff will not budge.


One thing that I am not a fan of is the brush, the brush is normal sized but the bristles are really short and some are almost non existent and this then creates my biggest pet peeve, TOO much product on the wand!!

I have found myself looking past this and actually liking the mascara, but as I said have a good makeup remover as this can be a pain to remove.

The mascara retails for £10.00 and can be found in your local Body Shop or online HERE.

This mascara may have too much product on the wand when removed from the packaging but I would repurchase this again as it just lasts.

Thanks for tuning in

The Body Shop Camomile Eye Makeup Remover

I am always on the lookout for a good eye makeup remover, so when The Body Shop brought out their Camomile range I just had to try it out.

Avon Clear Skin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask

I have only just started to dabble in the world of face masks, but I do find them quite relaxing after I have had my shower I then put one on and relax for 10 to 15 minutes.

GOSH Eyeshadow Palette - To Have Fun With in L.A.

As you should know by now from reading this blog I love an eyeshadow palette, always good to take away with you so your makeup bag isn't full of solo eyeshadows.

Weekly Round-Up #9 (2nd Mar 2015 - 7th Mar 2015)

Welcome to another Weekly Round-Up, sorry for the late post but it has been such a busy week at work I am all out of synch with blogging and I am trying to catch up.



#ManiMonday - Mist - Barry M
This is a gorgeous colour for Spring, and looks really great on the nails.








Revlon Blusher - Racy Rose
A great blusher that adds a nice flush of colour to the cheeks.











Revlon Lash Potion Mascara
A great mascara that really lengthens the lashes and doesn't make them look clumpy.















February Favourites
Another favourites post, this one is full of some nail polish, shower products, and others, go and check it out.














February Empties
Jam packed with a shed load of empties (it still surprises me how much I can get through in a month)














Dr Bronner's Magic Soap
A great soap (especially for cleaning your brushes), I will be repurchasing this in a different scent though.










Go and check out the posts you may have missed this week, and have a great week next week.

Thanks for tuning in
