Technology Marketing Director by day, ex-beauty industry insider, creator of my own line of skincare & make-up, kept my passion for all things make-up, skincare, fragrance, hair are, body care. In fact anything which can help us all look or feel better and make the best of ourselves.
Lots to share, I've made products, I know the good from the bad, I'm also an ex journalist so I hope my little blog might help others find their way through the beauty jungle, not waste too much money & discover some great new products.
Thanks for reading & engaging with me.
Inside scoop; found this in TK Maxx (yup AGAIN a TK Maxx haul) and couldn’t believe the price or the dazzling colours. Cargo are my go – to eye brand and I just can’t stop buying their palettes, fine powders, last all day NO creasing, blend / change / shade / contour / highlight ; that’s less than a penny a look!!!
Rating; Rose tinted spectacles actually rose tinted beauty alert!
Inside scoop; Ok I don’t especially do Celebrity-endorsed products (not sure why but they mildly aggravate me) : nor do I especially do High Street beauty products (not snobby just sometimes quality fails) but today PARK the prejudice PICK the beauty.
Rosie Rosie where for art though : at M&S ?!?! Yup M&S OMRosie-ness ok I’m all in…
Rating; annoyed, annoying, angry…and that’s just me. If you don’t use ear buds switch off now, if you don’t but do like a good old rant for fun then, read on!
Inside scoop; I’m a mum, I’m a woman, I wear make-up that means collectively I’ve 20+ years experience of using cotton wool buds which makes me fully fully qualified to tell Johnson & Johnson they are MISTAKEN in their ear bud re-design. Read on before you judge me ;)!
If life gives you lemons…don’t make lemonade … turn them in a beauty therapy which packs a punch!
Rating; luscious, lovely, like-able, lively, live-longer, LEMONS ; who knew the humble LEMON had so many beauty uses & health benefits…I didn’t until now.
Inside scoop; 2 rather gorgeous kind ladies who I’d be utterly lost without (you know who you are….Kerry and Alex!) bought me a lemon tree as a present for my birthday and as a cheer me up from them and my team, having not been well. So at first I thought err ok erm thanks (and inside my head EEK EEK EEK how the hell am I going to keep THIS alive : see Facebook fake cactus post, I digress!). BUT then I read the letter it came with :
V for V V V VERY lovely dress alert from … easy … very.co.uk and so no to the Stars I’m afraid…
Rating; A short P.s to my last post here….well also a mini rant. So if it were currently iconic High Street dress. vs iconic High Street dress…just to reassure you : so NO on ‘the’ Star dress.
Inside scoop; M&S do alot of things brilliantly but nothing annoys me more than a dress selling out before I can even get it, in fact selling out twice. I appreciate that’s the whole intention of Limited Edition. But frankly I just find it annoying. That is all.
V for V V V VERY lovely dress alert from … easy … very.co.uk
Rating; I don’t really do ‘fashion’ per se, in fact my mum often says I’ve the style sense of a small squirrel, maybe not fair she doesn’t exactly say that, but she does say I have a ‘particular look’ not sure it’s properly a compliment!But heck this time even she LOVED this dress and so do I…hurry hurry before it’s gone if you like it.
Inside scoop; Of course fashion’s a very personal thing, one girls super chic is another girls ‘OMG-so no-eek’. But I did feel I needed to share this very Very VERY nice dress from….erm can you guess Very! What’s more it’s my first EVER purchase from them. Pretty sure it won’t be my last…
I don’t normally use pics of myself either, but I just love this dress and felt better than I’d felt in ages in it, so here you go :).
