25 random facts about me

After getting one year older yesterday, I thought it seemed like the perfect time to share some random facts about me with you all. I attempted 50, but unfortunately ran out of steam, so here are 25 random facts about me...

1. I'm a complete nail polish obsessive - I think I have nearly 100.
2. I have no middle name.
3. I can't cook to save my life, but strangely I'm really good at baking.
4. Without mascara I have completely blonde lashes so never leave the house without it.
5. I love making lists.
6. Toffee Crisps are my chocolate nemesis - one is never enough.
7. I really love vintage clothing from the 60s/70s.
8. Hot pink is my favourite colour for accessories, despite never wearing it in my clothes.
9. Bon Jovi are my guilty music pleasure.
10. I really want to ombre my hair but worry it's not long enough.
11. CSI is one of my favourite tv programmes.
12. I am shockingly bad at remembering to moisturise my body, but yet love buying body creams/oils.
13. My Kindle is one of the best presents I've ever been given.
14. I'm left-handed.
15. I used to sing in a band.
16. Despite having a massive love for high heels I struggle to walk in them.
17. I was a vegetarian for several years - bacon tempted me back.
18. Tigers are my favourite animals (tortoises come a close second).
19. I quit smoking 4 years ago.
20. I have yet to find a fake tan that doesn't look orange/ridiculous on me (if you know any for pale skin, let me know!).
21. I don't drink tea or coffee.
22. I once had 2 goldfish - they were called Fish and Chip.
23. I love food. Pretty much the only things I don't eat are Sushi and Offal.
24. Gin and Bourbon are my drinks of choice (not together).
25. I'm 29 (shhh... don't tell anyone!).



Ciate Colourfoil manicure review

If you haven't guessed yet, I'm a bit of a nail polish addict. I have a LOT of different shades and I'm a total sucker for new ranges when they launch.

One thing I'm not so good at is nail art. When I saw that Ciate were launching a foil effect nail kit, I knew I had to get one. So after a quick lunchtime walk (run) to Selfridges, I picked up a Colourfoil kit in the shade Carnival Couture (there are currently 3 to choose from).

Ciate Colourfoil kit

The idea behind the kits is that you can create marbled foil effects on your nails, giving a really unusual look, without too much fiddling around.

Each kit contains: a full size Ciate nail polish, 30 sheets of foils (5 of each colour), foil glue, instructions and a plastic nail wheel.

Parts of the Ciate Colourfoil kit
Forgive me for the used foils - as you can see, you can get more than one application out of each foil
To apply the foils, first paint your nails in your chosen shade of polish and allow to dry fully. Then decide which shades of foils you want to use. One nail at a time, apply a small amount of the glue to where you want the foils to stick. Allow the glue to become tacky (similar to eyelash glue), and then apply the foils one at a time, pressing the non-coloured side down onto the glue. Repeat for each colour you want to use, and you should end up with a unique, marbled foil nail.

Nails wearing the Ciate Colourfoil kit
I used a GOSH polish as the base for my nails here. 
Despite my usual laziness when it comes to topcoats, it really is a must with these nails. If you don't apply a topcoat, the foils will wash off when they get wet. I applied a good layer of topcoat and managed to get 3 days of perfect looking nails before the tips started wearing off.

These are really simple to use, and nowhere near as messy as the sequin kit that I bought from them before Christmas. You will end up with a little excess foil around your nail beds, but this will easily wash off as it's not been protected by a topcoat.

Another bonus is that they are really easy to remove. I was having sequin removal flashbacks, but the Colourfoils actually came off in seconds using my trusty Bourgois 1 second remover pot.

All in all I'm really happy with this kit and will definitely be using it again and again. They retail for £18 and are currently exclusive to Selfridges, but can be bought online if you can't get to a Selfridges store.

What do you think of Ciate's Colourfoil kits?



Abahna White Grapefruit and May Chang bath oil

Abahna are a luxury British brand that aim to make our daily shower/bath a special experience. 

I was recently sent their White Grapefruit and May Chang bath oil* to try, and was pretty much running up the stairs to the bath to try it out after just one sniff. 

Before I start raving about the oil itself, I need to mention the packaging. The glass bottle of bath oil comes packaged in a beautiful box, which slides open to reveal the oil inside. The bottle itself is etched with a really pretty design and will look great on show in your bathroom.

The oil itself is a soft citrus scent - the White Grapefruit is balanced out by the May Chang, so although it's really uplifting, it's not overpowering. 

I used about 3 small capfuls for a full bath and this fragranced the whole bathroom. I probably wouldn't use this oil right before bed as I found that it woke me up a little, but it's perfect for a Sunday afternoon pampering session. 

All of Abahna's bath oils are free from any SLS, parabens, and petrochemicals. The scent's are created using essential oils, and are not tested on animals.

A 100ml bottle of bath oil retails at £20, which definitely makes it a luxury purchase, but I think that these make a really beautiful present, or just an indulgent treat for yourself. Lilac Rose and Geranium is next on my list to buy! 

Have you tried anything from Abahna before?

Perricone MD No Concealer Concealer review

I was recently sent Perricone MD's No Concealer Concealer* to try out. As a super pale lady, I'm always wary of one shade products as they tend to be far too dark for me and make my skin look orange, so I was intrigued to see how this cult favourite would turn out.

Perricone MD no concealer concealer

The No Concealer Concealer comes in a small, pump-style bottle. It has both anti-ageing properties and a mineral based SPF 35 within the formula, so is one hard-working little product.

I think the name is a little mis-leading as I was expecting something more along the lines of a Touche Eclat consistency. Instead, I got a really thick, slightly pink-toned concealer.

Perricone MD no concealer concealer bottle

Despite the thick texture, this stuff blends really well onto the skin. They advise you to use your fingers to pat a small amount in, rather than brushing or rubbing. This approach has worked well for me, but be warned, a little bit goes a really long way.

It may be a one shade product, but it matches really well even with my pale complexion  It's slightly too dark for under my eyes, but I've been using to conceal redness around my nose area and also the odd spot, and it's done a great job.

Wear time is really good and lasts about 8 hours without primer. I don't have overly oily skin, so for those who do, you may need to reapply.

The concealer does have a slight smell to it, which I think is down to the SPF in it. This doesn't really linger once applied, but is definitely noticeable when fresh out of the bottle.

The bottle is pretty small given that the product retails at £37, but as you only need a tiny amount, I think the bottle will last for ages.

All in all I'm really pleased with this. It's become a firm staple in my makeup bag and I can see myself using it more and more as the weather gets warmer and the SPF really comes into it's own.

Have you tried the No Concealer Concealer before?

Elemental Herbology Cell Food serum

I used to think serums were a waste of money until I tried Cell Food by Elemental Herbology. I bought this about 6 weeks ago during my trip to Birmingham when I met up with some other bloggers.

After hearing Jess rave about this (and that girl has SERIOUSLY good skin), I decided to spend the last of some vouchers I had on it, not expecting to be overwhelmed.

Elemental Herbology combine natural actives with high performance scientific ingredients and are rich in vitamins, anti-oxidants, essential fatty acids and proteins.

Cell Food is no exception - designed to boost radiance, they've packed in 14 actives and 6 anti-oxidants to this little bottle. It includes Kombuchka to increase radiance, Aloe, Rose Damask, Green Tea and lots more.

The serum itself is a pretty regular looking, slightly runny white liquid. Two drops covers the whole of the face and I leave it a couple of minutes before applying moisturiser over the top.

I actually saw an effect after just the first use of this serum. My skin just looked that little bit brighter. I've now been using it day and night for about 6 weeks and I can really tell the difference. My skin is super soft, and I just look 'well'. A colleague even asked me if I'd been on holiday as I had a glow to my skin. Cell Food 1 - Winter 0.

The only thing that's slightly irritating about Cell Food is the pippet used to dispense the product. For some reason, even when the bottle's full, it struggles a little to pick the serum up unless you tilt it, but this is just a minor thing.

This serum is pretty pricey at £42, but you know what, I actually don't care. I'm freaking out slightly at the thought of running out of this serum, so may have to buy a back up just in case it runs out on me without warning. I'll definitely be looking at other items in their range to see if all of them are as good as this one.

Beauty Boo-tique Lavendar and Frangipani hand cream

I was recently sent a few things to try from beauty boo-tique, a small skincare brand that hand make natural products.

The first I'm going to share with you is their Lavender and Frangipani hand cream*. This little pot of goodness has been sat firmly on my coffee table since I received it, and I've been using it every day.

Hand cream pot

This is a really rich hand cream, with quite a strong lavender scent. It absorbs really easily and has helped keep my hands in good shape despite the stupidly long winter we seem to be having. 

open jar of hand cream

The cream comes in a glass pot, which although it means it's not easily transportable, it's all recyclable, adding another plus point to its ethical philosophy. 

The cream starts at £9 for 50ml which I think is pretty reasonable. A 50ml pot would last for ages - mine is only 15ml and it's still half full after 3 weeks use. 

All in all I've been pretty impressed with this hand cream, and I'd definitely consider buying a full size tube once this one runs out.

Have you heard of beauty boo-tique before?

DHC launch event

Last week I attended a really exciting launch for DHC, a Japanese brand that makes a wide range of skincare and makeup. They're quite new to the UK and I'd only heard of their famed Deep Cleansing Oil prior to the event.

We were all made really welcome and I got to chat with the DHC brand team, two of whom had flown over from San Francisco especially from the event.

DHC are primarily a catalogue based brand, but in the UK there's also a small range of their products in Beauty Mart at Harvey Nichols

I was really excited to see their makeup range. They had some gorgeous sheer lipsticks, a tubing mascara and my favourite of all, a liquid liner. I thought the liner was actually a felt tip style liner, but makeup artist Luke was on hand to explain that it was actually a traditional liquid liner, but with a thicker, pen style applicator.

I was really impressed with the range of products that DHC have. We were given a fab goody bag with lots to try, so I'll be reviewing some of these over the coming weeks. Top of my list will be the Deep Cleansing oil and liquid liner!

Have you tried anything by DHC before?



London part 3 - the mega haul and giveaway

I've popped all my purchases from my London day out into one big haul. There's quite a lot to show you, so I'll do as little talking as possible! Further down the page, you can also win a little Vitality Show goody bag that I've put together, so make sure to enter :)

First up are my Boots (we popped in quickly to check out the 3 for 2 offers) and John Bell & Croyden purchases. I bought:

makeup and nail polish

Sinful Colors nail polish in 920 and 830. This is a US brand I've never heard of before but these were only £1.99 each - bargain!
Revlon polish - 260 Girly - this looks to be a dupe for the Illamasqua speckle polishes
Revlon Baby Stick - pink passion - these are brand new so I couldn't resist picking one up!
Max Factor Colour Elixir giant stick pen - vibrant pink
Comvita manuka honey lozenges - I'm hoping these will help with my winter sore throat
John Bell & Croyden lemon and basil bath salts
Korres lip butter stick - I love the Korres lip butters, but don't like sticking my fingers in the pot, so this is perfect. 

Next stop Vitality Show! I've split this out into my actual pruchases, and then taken some pictures of all the goodies I got as part of magazine goody bags or just freebies wandering around.

What I bought:

Perfectil skin, hair and nails vitamins - these were on special at £5 for 30
Peppersmith mints - £1 each
Sukin hydrating mist toner - £7. I wanted to try something from Sukin for ages, and this was lovely and refreshing. 
Niki's Organic Balms original balm -£4.99. We got to have a chat with the lovely Niki who makes these balms and after testing a few, I decided I liked the original smell the best so bought a mini pot. 
Green People scent free cleanser - All of the Green People products had 20% off so I decided to stock up and get a back up of my cleanser for just over £15. 
Nakd cocoa orange bars x 6 - I love these natural snack bars. They normally retail about about 80p each but were on offer for 2 for £1. I'm regretting not buying more!

Onto the goodies... I've separated them out into food, supplements and skincare/cosmetics. 

The supplements/added extras:

The skincare/cosmetics:

The food and drink:

Phew! This little lot is going to keep me going for a while! 

The giveaway:

I've put together a little goody bag from the show with bits and pieces including a mini DHC cleansing oil, vitamins, some Nakd snacks and a Gold Collagen shot. To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know your favourite item from my haul below. Make sure to include your Twitter handle/email address so I can contact you if you win. All the entries will go into a hat and one will be picked out at random (I'm going low-tech here!). Entries are open for 7 days. Good luck!

UPDATE - This giveaway is now closed. All the comments were numbered and went into a hat and one was picked out at random. The lucky winner is comment number 23! Well done Laura Mackay!

Thank you to everyone who entered. 

London part 2 - Vitality Show 2013

After our lunch stop off at Meat Liquor, Alice and I hotfooted it over to Earls Court 2 for the opening day of the Vitality Show. 

I've been for the past few years and really enjoyed it, but this was Alice's first time so I wanted to see what she would make of it. 

The view from above. 

It's essentially a massive hall filled with lots of health, beauty and fitness stands. They also have talks throughout the day, plus free exercise classes that you can go along to. For those that bought VIP tickets, there was a big treatments section at the back of the hall - this year it was run by Neal's Yard Remedies.

I love the wide range of brands that you find at Vitality. There are lots of natural skincare brands, including Green People,  and Niki's Organic Balms to name a few. There's also lots of smaller, less well known brands to explore. These ranged from supplements to exercise equipment, right through to jewellery and bath bombs. 

There are lots of free samples to try and goody bags to pick up. I dragged Alice to both the Zest magazine and Women's Health magazine stands as if you bought the magazine, you also got a bumper goody bag with it too. Everyone that attends gets a little show goody bag for free with some samples in, so if you're attending, make sure you pick one of those up!

Shopping aside, I think my favourite section is the food zone. If you have allergies, like healthy foods or just want to try something new, they have anything and everything to try. Some of my favourites were there: Nakd and Peppersmith mints, plus I also tried some Baobab fruit drink (a little odd, but quite tasty).

There were a few stands from last year that weren't there again which I missed - namely more magazines (love the goody bags!) and also the sausage man (I have no idea what he's really called). He had the most amazing sausages that were being cooked hot to order and after 3 hours of exploring I would've killed for one of those. 

All in all, it was a fab day. It wasn't over for us however as we were off to meet the lovely Neal's Yard team at the opening of their new treatment rooms at their Camden store. I'll be doing a post on this shortly, and coming up later today will be my mega haul post with all of the day's purchases. Keep your eyes peeled...



London trip part 1: John Bell and Croyden

On Thursday Alice (Bright Town Girl) and I headed out for an epic day in London. So epic in fact I'm splitting it up into a few posts!

The first stop of the day was to John Bell & Croyden, an amazing pharmacy hidden away just behind Oxford Street.

John Bell & Croyden have been open in their current store for over 100 years and have a Royal Warrant  to the Queen.

Just some of the skincare

They stock the most amazing selection of products from the usual pharmacy type stuff, to bath and body products, makeup, and lots and lots of skincare.

After being completed overwhelmed at the size of the place, we were given a quick tour of the shop by Catherine, who pointed out some of their favourite products in store.

Bioderma full range

Korres makeup
Lots of Korres makeup

As well as stocking the entire Korres makeup line, they also have hard to find brands like Bioderma, which recently launched there. There's also a whole host of other French skincare brands, natural haircare, and their own brand ranges.

OPI polish

We were only there for about an hour due to time restrictions but you could easily spend a few there browsing the shelves. What I really liked was that you could pop in for some plasters, pick up a bottle of OPI and also find something totally unexpected on the shelves to try.

I will definitely be going back. It's great to find this kind of place so easily accessible from Oxford Street and with such an amazing array of brands. If you can't get to the store, you can buy lots of the ranges online, so definitely check out their website.

I did have a little hauling session in there but am going to group the days purchases into one mega haul post for you so keep your eyes peeled for that!

After leaving John Bell & Croyden, we popped to Meat Liquor for lunch. It's conveniently just around the corner so I took Alice in there for what she described as the best burger ever. They aren't healthy (far from it) but it definitely set us up for stage two of the day which was the Vitality Show (post coming soon).



Eye eye liner!

Choosing an eye liner can be tricky. There's lots of different types, not to mention brands, so as a complete liner addict I wanted to outline what I think each liner works best for.

selection of black eyeliners
L-R Bourgois kohl, Topshop gel, Chanel crayon, Kat von D felt pen and GOSH pencil


Pencil liners are great for a subtle line along the top lashes, and also for on the waterline. They normally come in a wide variety of colours making them perfect if you love experimenting with your eye makeup. They usually last forever as you can sharpen them over and over again, but can be annoying if they go blunt on you and you can't find your sharpener! I'm loving Inika and Urban Decay right now.


Like a pencil, only minus the wood, these are usually contained in plastic tubes that twist up to reveal the actual liner. These are great as they don't need sharpening, making them perfect for travelling, plus usually smudge quite nicely if you want a smokey effect. Good ones should go on smoothly, with no dragging. My current favourites are by Chanel and GOSH.


These are slightly less available, but the Bourgois kohl crayon pictured above is a nice example. Kohls are usually used for a more smudgy, smokey effect and are a little harder to get a very fine, neat line with. Definitely something to use for 'rock chick' eyes.


Liquid liners are really versatile. Perfect for getting a vintage flick, they offer a good choice of thickness. Application can take a bit of practice though and some of them have a tendency to flake as the day wears on. Most usually come with a little brush inside the lid which is used to apply the liner. I don't use these very often, but Rimmel make a really good budget buy which I've repurchased several times over the years.

Felt pen

For me these are the perfect liner. All of the look of a liquid liner, but much easier to apply. Some brands offer a thin tip and a thick tip to help control the thickness of the line. Because these don't have a reservoir pot like liquid liners they can dry out, but if you store them on their side this usually makes them last a lot longer. I've tried a lot of felt pen liners and the best ones I've found so far are by Hourglass and NARS.


Gel liners come in little pots and are applied using a brush. These can be used to give a very fine line to enhance lashes, or built up for a thicker, more defined look. I think the success of a gel liner really comes down to your brush skills, and I struggle to get fine lines with these as I'm a bit heavy handed. Again, good ones will last all day, but they can have a tendency to dry out and flake a little in my experience. Don't leave the lid off, or you'll come back to a dried out lump! The Topshop one pictured is pretty good, and Bobbi Brown make a great range of colours in their gel liners.

What's your favourite type of eye liner?



Kim Kardashian True Reflection perfume

I was recently sent a bottle of Kim Kardashian's 'True Reflection' perfume* to review and have to admit was quite intrigued as I'm not usually one for celebrity fragrances. 

Kim Kardashian True Reflection perfume box

I think that the packaging is quite classy - it's a simple bronze box and inside the perfume bottle is slightly vintage looking, with a clear lid and smokey glass the further down the bottle you get. 

Kim Kardashian True Reflection perfume bottle

Fragrances are notoriously hard to describe, so here's what they say it should smell like: 

"A tantalising oriental fragrance that opens with a burst of sparkling Italian bergamot, luscious plum and succulent peach, True Reflection guarantees instant attraction. A rich floral heart blends night blooming gardenia, chocolate orchid and lotus flower for a thoroughly addictive mélange, while the earthy finish of textured woods, patchouli and musk rounds off the sultry scent."

To me, it's quite a sweet fragrance. My boyfriend commented that I smelt like coconut when I asked his opinion, which is odd as it's not listed as one of the perfume notes, but I can see his point of view. There's a hint of fruit, but definitely more a sweet floral smell.

It's a lot different from my usual citrusy smells or Marc Jacobs collection, but I actually quite like it. It takes about 10 minutes for the sweetness to subside a bit and then offers quite a soft, evening perfume. 

One thing I was really impressed with was the fact that although 30ml retails for £24, it's actually an Eau de Parfum so lasts a lot longer on the skin. A lot of the celeb fragrances I've seen have all be Eau de Toilette which I avoid as it only lasts about 2 hours on. 

All in all, I don't love it, but I like it. I'll definitely use it and the bottle looks gorgeous on my dressing table!

Have you tried any celebrity fragrances before?

Docteur Renaud Raspberry Hydrating Programme Cosmekit

I recently went along to a launch event for Docteur Renaud, a French skincare brand that’s recently launched in Marks and Spencer beauty halls across the country.

Dr Renaud raspberry cosmekit pot

As part of the goody bag, I received the Raspberry Hydrating Programme Cosmekit*. This was the product I was most drawn to at the launch event as it sounded like a way to give yourself a mini facial at home, and came in an unusual looking shaker container.

Dr Renaud raspberry cosmekit contents

The Cosmekit is a single use treatment that contains three steps: exfoliator, moisturiser and mask.

The exfoliating gel is used first on slightly damp skin, massaged in and then washed away. This helps prepare the skin for the moisturising steps.

Step two is a moisturising treatment that you massage into your face. There’s a little leaflet inside with instructions on how to give yourself a sculpting facial massage while using the cream. This step was quite fun, although I did struggle a little to know how much pressure to use on my face (I went with firm, but stopping before any ‘ouch’).

Despite there being quite a lot of product in the small bottle, I was amazed at how much my face actually soaked up. It was clearly drier than I thought! I tissued off any excess before moving onto the mask.

The final step (and the one I was most looking forward to), is a hydrating foaming mask. This is where the shaker container comes in as you get a sachet of powder, add this to a small amount of water in the shaker, then shake for about 5 seconds. You then end up with what looks like raspberry mousse.

The mask ready to go...

I applied this using the wooden spatula provided to my face and neck in a thick layer. I did have a few carpet related accidents where a little bit slipped off – I think I might’ve added a little too much water to the mix. I left this on for about 10 minutes, then scraped off the bulk with the spatula again and tissued off any remaining mask.

My skin was feeling so soft! Even the little lines around my mouth had plumped out visibly, which I thought was pretty impressive. I really loved using this treatment. It smelt like raspberries, so if you aren't keen on scented products it’s not for you, but the smell was definitely more ‘natural’ than some of the synthetic fruit-smelling products I've tried before.

The only downside for me is the price. One treatment retails for £22.50, which I think is too expensive given the fact it’s a single use product. If it contain enough for maybe 3 treatments, I would think this was fair, but at that price, I’d be tempted to just save up and go for a full facial instead. It’s a shame as other than that, I love it.

Have you tried anything from Docteur Renaud?
