Surely Not

Has anyone seen the Sure Advert yet for the launch of the latest Fragrance Collection anti-perspirant? I don’t mind a bit of a stretch of the imagination, but this one is so ridiculous that words fail me every time I see it. Well, they don’t actually, but they aren’t repeatable on here. For those who... Read More

Must Cut Slimming Cream

Must Cut Slimming Cream
I really couldn’t resist featuring this cream that ‘slims your body, detoxify and beauty your skin .. with unique softly hot feeling’. Well, you don’t see that every day for sure. I’m afraid I wouldn’t advise pinning your hopes on it.. if you see the picture below take a look at the before and after... Read More

Real Body Care

Real Body Care
Not everyone has a huge array of choices when it comes to skin care. There are those who are super-sensitive to just about everything, and a product being simply ‘organic’ doesn’t mean that sensitivities won’t occur.

Rococo Nails Nude Wardrobe

I love that it is just simple elegance rather than a display of the ‘shouty’ packaging we’ve seen with some fragrances of late.... Read More

Aveda AW 2011 Jewels Of The Earth Eye Shades

Aveda AW 2011 Jewels Of The Earth Eye Shades
There’s so much wow stuff around that actually I’m quite liking the simplicity of these little Aveda shades. Aveda is more known for its shampoos and hair products, but they do also have a small make up range. These Petal Essence singles are £11.25 each, so quite expensive, but their USP is that they are... Read More

Nails Inc Metallic in Houses of Parliament

Nails Inc Metallic in Houses of Parliament
I really like this dark and dusky mauve shade and the magnet works really well I must admit. I used one coat of the polish and then applied the magnet using the resting edge that stops you clunking straight onto your polished nail! I love this look – and the polish dries really quickly, too.... Read More
