Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM It’s 2.25pm on Sunday and I am only sitting down to write tonight’s blog post that is due to go live this evening. I usually write these posts on a Friday morning, so why am I late? This week I had a mental week. It was mental in a good way, […]

dsc_1588

As someone who has quite dark circles, I am incredibly hard and picky on the concealers I use. My concealer needs to not only cover my dark circles, but they must be comfortable, long wearing and above all they must not settle in my fine lines! Often with a concealer you can get a feel […]

Last year saw the release of the Blank Canvas Master series palette and if I am to be completely honest, although everyone was raving about this palette, I personally didn’t hold out much hope for it, as I didn’t love the Pippa palette the way everyone else did. Yet every so often a product comes […]

Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM Well guys are you keeping it simple? Are you implementing things you already know? Have you blamed anyone else for your health or fitness results this week?  Perhaps you have blamed your circumstances.

The Autumn is by far my favourite time of the year. As a teacher, I see September as the start of a new year, rather than January. For me, September is all about fresh starts, new clothes and of course the Autumn beauty releases. At this time of year I am ready to leave behind […]

What has become of me? Those of you following the blog for a while will know that I am a foundation junkie. All you have to do is go back through my foundation reviews to know that a serious amount of my money has been spent trying out the latest must have foundations. Yet, when you […]

The Balm, Meet Matte Hughes review
