Bright Beauty Tools at Superdrug

I popped into Superdrug last week, and I spotted these bright coloured beauty tools. Now, I am a sucker for anything bright and bold, particularly in the primary colours, and I had to have them. There were more, but I stopped at seven - not sure why, as they were on a 3 for 2, but there you go. In my slight hysteria at their bright beauty, I miscounted.   I could have bought more, considering they are priced between £1 and £3. … [Read more...]

New Scent for Spring?

Fancy a new scent for spring? Good, because I have seven to share with you! I've tried these gorgeous fragrances over the last few months, and here's my take on them.   1. Alaia Nude Eau De Parfum, from £67, available now, Debenhams I like this one a lot. Firstly I love the 1970s-style bottle. Then I love the headiness of it.

Paul Mitchell NEW Neuro hair range

Are you a heated hair tool addict? Join the club! I love nothing more than wanding and straightening my hair. It can be a little friend, thanks to that and the fact it's over-processed and dyed.
