You know when you go to the supermarket and you pop in a lipstick (or two!) in your shopping trolley and it’s still considered “groceries”… Well, you can also buy high end cosmetics, specifically (lip) crayons, and consider that “stationery supplies”! You like?
If so, here are 3 luxe lip crayons you should check out :-
- Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in 01 Curviest Caramel
- Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Harlow Red*
- Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist 5 Berry*
She’s pretty, she’s witty, she’s an expert on writing about beauty and she recently popped a sprog. No, I’m not talking about me…! I’m talking about Zoe Foster Blake who launched her own skincare line, Go-To, earlier this year.
The Go-To range currently consists of a lip balm, cleanser, exfoliating facial pads, face cream and Exceptionoil – a nourishing body oil which I had the pleasure to trial.
Since none of my family members live in Australia, they demand daily photos and updates of #BabyBunty. And I get in trouble if the photo is blurry (hello, she is a baby and will not sit still!) or she wears the same onesie or her bib is dirty. Yep, that’s my family for ya – they are not easily satisfied! But I guess it’s a fun challenge trying to take interesting photos of her every day.
Lately, I’ve started thinking up witty captions to go with the photos (like those funny baby memes I constantly see on Facebook) and here’s one that got my sister’s approval so I thought I’d share it with you guys too. Hope it gave you a little giggle!
During my recent travels, when I landed in Scotland, it was (unsurprisingly) F-F-F-FREEZING. My skin immediately felt the effects of the long flights, the plunging temperatures and gas central heating and it literally started cracking up!
I was like – WTF? I have family and friends to catch up with who I haven’t seen for almost 4 years!! WHY ME?!! I can’t let them see me looking like a frumpy bum!!!
Luckily, the smart cookie inside me must have anticipated this because before I left Hong Kong to head to UK, I had picked up a few products from the Olay Aquaction range and they miraculously saved my skin and it was back to normal in a matter of days.
After sharing my Hong Kong shopping haul a couple weeks ago, a lovely reader – Hi Grace! – asked if I could share some tips as she would be going to Hong Kong in September. Although I am not from Hong Kong (my parents are but I’m a true Scottish lassie!), I have holidayed there plenty of times – as a young child, grumpy teenager and as an adult. In fact, I have been to HK for the last 8 years in a row – the lure of the cheapo shopping and yummy food haha!
Anyway, this year’s trip to HK was different as we had a baby (who was a mere 3 months old then!)…AND we survived…AND rebooked our flights to spend another week in HK so it must have been good!
Here are 10 tips for travelling in Hong Kong with babies and young children :-
If you’re a cosmetics chaser, you will have read on many beauty blogs about the soon-to-be-released Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner. I was a lucky duck (quack, quack) and got my hands on one of these babies a few weeks ago and I’ve given it a good trial run.
For the first time ever, out of all the Benefit cosmetics I have tried – Fake Up (HG undereye concealer), POREfessional, Dr Feelgood, Ultra Plush Lip Gloss, They’re Real Mascara (my HG!), etc – this is the first one I didn’t fall in love with straight away!! My verdict of this highly-raved gel eyeliner pen is that I like it, but I don’t love it.
Let me tell you why…
We are nearly halfway through 2014! It will be July next week – how scary is that?! I thought it was time to give an update on how I am going with my goals for 2014 seeing as a lot of you were super supportive in the comments section
