Weekend Pickups

I went shopping last weekend with the intention of ticking off some bits from my Christmas present shopping list…that would be the list of gifts for other people not for myself. Well, my shop wasn’t overly successful, I bought one present for someone and accidentally, a whole host of goodies for myself. Oops. Some of my acquisitions were…

H&M Makeup Haul

I was super excited to pick up some bits from the new H&M makeup range when I was back in the UK. The range includes everything from foundations and BB creams, to eyeshadow pencils and brushes and is presented beautifully in store. The packaging is all clean lines, black and white with gold detailing giving…

Oh, Charlotte…

As I was winding up my life to leave the UK the Charlotte Tilbury makeup launch was the hot topic of conversation amongst bloggers and makeup fans alike. I left for Bangkok before I managed to try any bits so on my October trip home, hitting the new CT stand in Selfridges, Manchester was high…

Duty Free & Home

I did have a list of things to pick up when I was back in the UK but of course, I also bought a few things that took my fancy when I was perusing the shelves of Boots and duty-free! Here’s a bit of a rundown of what I brought back with me. Clinique CC Cream…

Stuck in a Nail Rut…

Yesterday I went to have my nails done before heading back to the UK tomorrow. I always go for CND Shellac as I find it the best for my nails but I find it really hard to stray away from my usual colours alternating between Fedora and Rubble (in the UK Tinted Love was also in the…

Review ~ Living Proof 5-in-1

I have stupidly thick, coarse long hair which has always been relatively tame-able with frequent trips to the hairdresser and lots of rich serums and balms. Tame-able that was until rainy season arrived in Bangkok. My usually ok hair turned into a larger than life, frizz ball mess that had the texture of straw and the…

Review ~ Face Spritz

Firstly, let me admit I am late to this particular party. The Body Shop Vitamin C range has been around for years in different guises, the Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz has been around as far as I can tell for at least 3 years. Secondly, I shall admit that I have always steered pretty clear…

Thai Beauty ~ Srichand Powders

I read about the Srichand face powders somewhere on a blog when I was looking into Thai beauty and now I just can’t find where but thankfully I recognised them in the 7/11 store from their distinctive and pretty packaging. They stocked two types so I bought them both although there is a Translucent Face Powder too which…

Restock ~ Bronzer

I never used to wear bronzer, then I became slightly addicted to Tanya Burr a few years ago (before she became a tween idol) and was converted. My bronzer of choice is Nars Laguna Bronzer; a favourite of bloggers, makeup artists and beauty addicts alike. It’s a bronze brown shade that seems to suit most people,…

Review ~ Oasis Spa

If you’re in the market for a massage I can’t imagine there’s a city in the world with more choice than Bangkok. As a wedding present we were gifted a voucher for the Oasis Spa on Sukhumvit 31 in Phrom Phong. We have been meaning to use it for the past 6 months and finally got around…

Muji Cleanser

Back in May I read an article from skincare guru Caroline Hirons about Muji Skincare and its relaunch. For those of you not familiar with Muji, it is a Japanese brand with stores all over the world whose philosophy for its products around simplicity and form. They sell everything from bedding to storage (loved by beauty addicts worldwide), kitchen…

Eyeko & Urban Decay

Since moving to Thailand my makeup regime has become much quicker. My reasons being that it’s so hot it runs off plus when I have a tan I never think I need as much! I am someone who very much enjoys doing my makeup and can happily spend an hour blending and buffing but now my daily routine is…
