My Favourite Sheet Masks For Every Budget

Hello Bunnies, 

I hope you are all having a great weekend.

I’m pretty sure by now you have noticed that I rather enjoy a sheet mask – there have been many posts!! Truthfully my obsession is getting a little out of hand, but its a small price to pay for baby soft glowing skin, right??

If you are new to the world of sheet masks, let me give you a short overview.  These wonderful little miracle workers originated in South Korea, a nation with a fanatical devotion to skincare, they also introduced the world to BB Cream – so you could say they are beauty and skincare pioneers, where they lead, I will certainly follow!! 

What is a sheet mask? To put it plainly its a cloth or fibre sheet saturated in a potent mix of skin-loving ingredients that’s left over your face for up to 30 minutes, allowing your skin to soak up all the nutrients and goodness of the serum.  Upon removal of your mask, massage in any remaining product residue and bask in the gloriousness of your new silky fresh face – believe me you wont be disappointed.

My Skincare Routine Now In My 30’s

Hello all my beautiful bunnies!!

Its been a wee while since I posted, so I thought I would kick off with an overview of my skincare routine and how its changed now I’m In my 30’s.  I can remember turning 30 like it was yesterday, I approached it with a jumble of feelings and there were certainly quite a few questions burning in my mind – Am I officially old?  Does this mean I’m an adult? Will everything start to sag/droop/wrinkle? – these were just a few of the thoughts I had in the midst of my 1/4 life crisis!! Now I’m officially ‘in my 30’s’ I can happily say that this is probably the happiest and most comfortable I have been in my life so far and most of the insecurities that plagued my teens and 20’s are pretty much gone.  When I look back at old photographs of myself, I thank God that I now have a more… shall we say….. ‘sophisticated’ understanding of fashion and make-up – lets just say more than a few ‘questionable’ choices were made in my younger years.

I love these brilliant illustrations, created by illustrator Jessica Saia and writer Cecilia Rabess which visually in an all-too-real way explain what the third decade is really like.

Best Beauty – The Grammy Awards 2016

Hello Bunnies,

Another day, another awards ceremony and this time its music’s biggest night — an evening we look forward to for the chance to see something more than your basic red-carpet fare – the Grammy’s offer something a little more bold and bolshy when it comes to fashion and beauty.  And this year, we certainly weren’t disappointed with some stand-out looks from Taylor Swift who debuted a new blunt bob, and what about GaGa??!!  There was no other fitting person to encapsulate the spirit of David Bowie.

The red carpet seen our favourite stars keeping it super-clean with glowing skin, natural hair and the smoky eye was very much the go-to look of the night!

I have to admit I’m not really a fan of any of the fashion choices of the night but below are some of my favourite Grammy’s beauty looks:

1. Ellie Goulding My favourite look of the evening, she looks absolutely stunning, this whole look is so fresh and reeks of pure romance, I especially love her rosy pink lips.

Best BAFTA Beauty Moments 2016

Hello Bunnies,

Awards season is well under way, YAY!!  And I don’t know about you, but the months of January & February are my favourites in terms of hair and beauty for this very reason!!  Golden Globes, SAG Awards, The Grammy’s, People’s Choice, The BAFTA’s and of course I cant forget to mention The Academy Awards – the list goes on and with all these red carpet opportunities, its hard not to get excited.  As I have mentioned before, I have a new baby at home so I am a little late in sharing my favourite award season beauty looks but for this post, I start with the BAFTA’s.  This year it was all about the statement lip and below are a few of my favourite looks from the night.

1. Isla Fisherwithout a doubt this is my favourite look of the evening, doesn’t she look stunning channelling old Hollywood glamour and that hair….simply gorgeous!!

Hello Bunnies, 

So my life couldn’t be anymore different in 2016, I am now trying to balance blogging and a baby – it may just be luck but I’ve managed to ‘persuade’ him to take a nap.  So with this window of opportunity I bring you my first review of 2016 and its a special one – this is a product I have had my eye on for a long time and I’m so happy to say it hasn’t disappointed!  Say hello the the holy grail of primers – Chanel Le Blanc de Chanel – well technically it’s not a primer, but if you ask me, it’s a ruddy good multi-tasker!!  If you want longer wearing make-up, a dewy fresh complexion as well as minimising pores and fine lines look no further – this bad boy is for you.

Hello Bunnies, 

Apologies for the lack of blogging in 2016 so far, I don’t have as much free time as I’d like with a baby in tow!! I hope you are all having a great January – pay day is nearly here 🙂 

For my first post of the new year, I just wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to pop by and read my blog.  I only started in August last year and already I have had close to 10,000 views, I really cant believe it!  It does take a bit of time to pull each blog post together so I am really grateful to anyone who has enjoyed reading.

So again a HUGE thank you from me and here’s to some more happy beauty blogging in the coming year!!
