Zelens Extreme Velvet Lipsticks – Nude Plum, Red, Dark Red, Merlot

When I heard Zelens were launching a new lipstick range, I was delighted, for Zelens are one of my (if not the very pinnacle) favourite skincare brands of all time, and so I was incredibly excited at the thought of actual lipsticks from them.  I already own several of the lip glosses that were launched a couple of years ago, and they’re amongst my most-used […]

Skincare of the Week 8th July 2016

Yeah, it’s been a while … Turns out I like not blogging almost as much as I do actual blogging, who knew?!  Anyway, for today at least, I’m back slaving away at a keyboard. I would have been back last week, but stuff happened, and I’m still wearing the bandage on the middle finger of my left hand, let’s put it that way. Anyhoo, skincare.  […]

Skincare of the Week 12 June 2016

I’ve been on a blog-hiatus. It wasn’t intended, but it just sort of happened, and, I have to admit, I’ve rather enjoyed it.  I’m just now entering my eighth year of blogging (you read that right), so that’s seven years of Sunday afternoons that I’ve spent at my computer,which equates to nearly a solid YEAR of taking pictures, editing pictures (always the worst part, tbh), […]

Skincare of the Week 15th May 2016

Last week was a really stressful one, with deadlines and auditors galore, I’m still recovering! Hopefully now both the house move and the audit are over, I’ll have a little more time free to do some blogging and cataloguing my collection of … stuff.  I’ve had a few new releases recently too, and I’ll get around to photographing them soon.  Anyhoo, skincare-wise, I’ve been a […]

Skincare of the week 2nd May 2016

I’m trialling a couple of new bits and pieces at the moment, mostly from Zelens.  The new pieces I’ve added to my routine are the Zelens Power D Treatment Drops, which I’ve been adding to my serums this week for a lovely antioxidant boost, and I’ve been using them alongside the Zelens Hydra Shiso Balancing Moisturiser too.  Loving the treatment drops, but I really need […]

Skincare of the Week 6th March 2016

I didn’t really have a theme for skincare this week, except “get back on track”, because, after a week away and a weekend in Paris my normal routines have gone a little to pot, I have to admit.   On Monday I trialled used May Lindstrom’s Honey Mud in the shower, as a protective mask against the shower water (I do find that water irritates my […]

Skincare of the Week 7th February 2016

A mixed bag skincare-wise this week, I started the week with a Zelens-heavy routine (have I mentioned how much I love Zelens?  It’s true, I do), and, I still love a full routine from them – in particular the Z Recovery Intensive Repair Balm, which is a lifesaver.  A non-greasy balm that sinks in, heals and nourishes stressed skin, I’ve used it after operations, during […]

Skincare of the Week 31 January 2016

A short and sweet Skincare of the Week this week because I was ill, and hanging around a cold bathroom taking pictures of my skincare (like you do) took a deserving backseat to me being wrapped up in the duvet, and slathering myself in Pommade Divine, frankly. Nothing better for a sore nose than Pommade Divine, if you ask me. Anyhoo, yes, I’m still a […]

Skincare of the Week 24 January 2016

 This week was another Tata Harper-heavy week, I’ve totally fallen in love with one of the products, and I *like* the others, but for me, the Refreshing Cleanser really is the outstanding product of the range so far.  There’s a full review of just why I like it so much coming up later this week.  I also went for a Tata Harper facial, at the […]

LipsNspritz of the Week 17 January 2016

I spent this week wearing some of the “big hitters” in my collection, and thoroughly enjoyed it!  I began the week with Chanel No19 and Max Factor Marilyn Monroe Collection Ruby Red, and enjoyed the grown-up sophistication (something I’m sorely lacking in naturally) of bitter greenness and aldehydes. Tuesday brought brash spice and a gentle hint of the barnyard in Estee Lauder’s Cinnabar, which I […]

Skincare of the Week 17 January 2016

Well, as if you can’t tell, I spent this week acclimatising myself to the Tata Harper products I treated myself to over Christmas!  Inital thoughts are positive so far, extremely positive in fact, but I need a little more time with them before I review them in full. I wasn’t too sure about the Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser at first, it’s a little outside my […]

Skincare of the Week 10 January 2016

 I took a couple of weeks off blogging over Christmas, which was fabulous, but I still kept at the “cleaning my face” thing.  It being a new year, I thought trying out some new products would be a good idea, but I think I tried too much new far too quickly, and my skin fairly quickly let me know it wasn’t entirely happy with the […]
