Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Serum
A couple of weeks ago, Paul Mitchell haircare came to Glasgow for a night of talking all things hair and beauty.  Up until a few years ago, I never really used much haircare aside from the good old shampoo and conditioner.  However, once I got to know what works for me I learned to appreciate what a difference those products can make.  After the lovely event with our fishtail braids in tact, we went home to try out some products and one I need to share with the masses is the Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Serum*.  Lets just say.. you need this.

ORLY Darkest Shadow

ORLY Darkest Shadow
I'm always on the hunt for a new special nail polish and one trend I've seen come up more often is the subtle glitter.  As someone who wears a lot of black/dark clothes, I find it's one way to inject a little colour without making your nails the center of attention.  ORLY have recently released their Autumn 2014 collection: Smoke which features a collection of dusty tones with matte shimmers.  First up in the collection is ORLY's Darkest Shadow.

Autumn Make-Up Bag

Posted on October 22, 2014

autumn make up products As I'm sure all make-up lovers will agree, one of the most exciting things about a new season is the switch up in our make-up bags. I always try and make a concious effort to get a little experimental at the start of a new season and push myself to try out new shades or formulas. Of course, the most exciting part of it all is switching up the actual bag itself, and this Morris & Co Cosmetic Bag* has Autumn written all over it. The material is a durable wipe clean fabric and it is probably the roomiest make-up bag I've ever owned, here is what's inside;

Kneipp Shower & Bath Products

Kniepp Shower Gel and Bath Salts
Admittedly natural beauty brands are still quite an unexplored territory for me, so when I was asked to try out some treats from Kneipp I was more than happy to accept and dip my toe into a new brand. I hadn't really heard of Kneipp before, but after some research I understand the brand goes back to Sebastian Kneipp who developed 'The Five Pillars' back in the 1800's. These pillars consist of water, plants, exercise, nutrition and balance, which makes complete sense. I was sent over some of the bathing products to try from the very extensive range, and I think it's safe to say when it comes to a Kneipp shower, I'm completely converted.

Sunday Life #2 - Newcastle

Posted on October 19, 2014

grainger market newcastle Earlier this week myself and my boyfriend took advantage of having a couple of days off together and sauntered off to Newcastle for the night. We have been a couple of times, and always really enjoy it and as it's so close it seemed like the perfect destination for a very mini getaway. We spent our time eating, shopping and of course enjoying quite a few beverages. Unfortunately I didn't take my camera out with me in the evening so you will be spared from any drunken selfies, but I did snap a few other bits of our little adventure;

Suti Skincare

Suti Skincare Purity Organic Balm, Suti Skincare Rejuvenate Face Oil for Day and Suti Skincare Nourish Face Oil for Night
A couple of weeks ago, we took a little trip to Wholefoods at Giffnock to meet with the lovely Suzannah, one of the founders of Suti Skincare.  If you've never came across Suti before, it's a brand which is based on Energy Healing.  Basically selecting each individual ingredient for a specific purpose such as organic essential oils, making sure their products are 100% natural, plant and botanical based.  The Suti website can explain their philosophy in more detail, it's very interesting.  After a lovely chat with Suzannah, we headed home to try out three of their lovely products.  Here's what we think of them.
