Storage Post

This blog post was inspired 100% by Bubblegarm one of my favourite bloggers and the queen of storage.
My current storage was a white wicker basket with jars.

I loved this as it was quick and easy to just grab things and get ready...but...I started hating everything being on show and looking messy.

So a trip to ikea to get these drawers. They are in the 'Moppe' range costing £17.

A can of matte spray paint later...

I love this!!! It just separates things well, it looks tidy and practical. I couldn't be happier with it:) I recommend every beauty lover tries this.

Japonesque Brushes

A good workman never blames his tools right...better make sure you have got some good ones then!
I've been in love literally since laying my eyes on these gorgeous safari inspired brushes.

Above we have an eyeshadow brush, all over face, crease brush and kabuki. Now I'm not going to lie but the pattern made me scream straight away and just know that I needed these in my life! Out they flew from the packaging as quick as my fingers would allow...ohhhh the softest brushes I own ladies:)

The set is £28 and kabuki £19.

Not cheap but worth absolutely every penny, they have well and truly brightened up my dressing table. Grab these immediately from

Another Internet beauty haul!

Well ladies last week was all about Internet shopping for me so I'm a little late with this post. Just a quick one to show you the fab items I picked up from Chemist Direct and will be reviewing in the near future.
Bare Minerals Brushes.

I've been looking to add to my brush collection slowly but surely. I buy a few every month as the good quality ones aren't cheap.
I opted for a big all over face brush and blusher brush. I will review in more detail but must say now that these are soooo soft my face is in heaven!

Well I started hyperventilating once I saw Macademia was stocked on the website! I am loving the healing oil spray which I use everyday, I've now bought a shampoo and conditioner.

Who can resist a pretty OPI colour...?! 'Thats Berry Daring".
All prices were lower than other beauty sites I found, delivery quick and easy...what's not to love?!

Internet haul!

Well ladies this week I've been Internet shopping...which is dangerous right?! It's so easy to click click click and watch that virtual basket fill up. I ordered from and I must say it was quick, easy and my order was with me in two days :) Receiving your order in the post always feels like a present...I choose to forget I paid for it!
Ok on to my haul

Everybody raves about these two products so thought its about time I invested. The Kerastase serum was around £28 so I'm hoping I love it!

After receiving some Japonesque products in the post including these lashes I knew I had to repurchase. I have some weddings to attend and these are just perfect. Also a repurchase of my Nars Blush in 'Deep Throat'.
As always review to follow.

Summer Favourites 2012

Well it's summer...ish?! Here are my current 5 favourite products to see me through this crazy climate!

A firm oldie but a goodie:) My trusty Macademia Oil Spray.
I love love love this and have raved about it many times. I use it on damp hair before blow drying my hair and it honestly leaves my hair soft shiny and manageable.

Never too busy to be beautiful lip scrub. Now I know that this company is no longer with us but it's sister company is Lush so i know they do a very similar lip scrub. I use this every morning before starting my make up followed my blistex so I get a perfect lipstick application. I hate dry lips!!! This lasts forever and mine smells of mint chocolate which always reminds me of mint matchsticks at Christmas...a little nostalgic I know.

Lipstick Dior Addict Singuleire.
A gorgeous lipstick...almost a balm but with a beautiful finish. It will set you back more than a pretty penny but I believe it's worth it. This has been my go to lipstick for over a month.

Perfume. Armani Mania. I bought this a week ago and can't get enough of it! It's so fresh / pretty / summery / clean. I have received so many compliments while wearing it that I never want to run out.

No7 pallette. I'm not usually one to rave about their shadows as let's be honest they can be..."bland" however this bland pallette is also handy! I've used it everyday and hit pan on some colours.
Well that's all folks:) These are my current favourites...what are yours for summer 2012?
