Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Review and Swatches

Hey all

Urban decay is a brand I love, I have Naked 2 and 3 (reviews Here and Here) And when my other half asked if I wanted anything for Christmas the link to ultimate naked basics was one of the first things I thought of as i don't have many matte eye shadow palettes and it had a great range of light shades.

Also the packaging needs a shout out, how gorgeous is it. It's plastic so long wearing and has a huge mirror.

L'Avoly - The Special One

Hi all!

Hope you've all got lovely things planned for the weekend - it's my birthday tomorrow so I'm spending today catching up on a few jobs, getting my Mother's Day gifts sorted and I'm going to treat myself to a good bath and pamper session later on tonight! I'm quite excited to try out some new bath bombs, turning into such a grandma with my cosy evenings!

Today's review is of a hair wonder product from L'Avoly.

Mother's Day Recommendations

Hi all!

I've done a quick post to share a few Mother's Day ideas that you can send or arrange as a surprise. These are all local to South Wales so are great if you don't want to travel far or give local!

I have personal experience of each of these places, treatments and products so can fully recommend as a gift for your mum (or any other worthy female in your life!)

Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream

Hey all

As you'll know by now we love Antipodes so whenever we get the chance to review products we can't wait. The Manuka honey range is one of my favorites and it's lasting so long as the eye cream is a big pot (review Here and all Antipodes posts Here). Antipodes is the brand i turn to now for luxury quality cruelty free skincare.

Avocados are everywhere at the moment, there popular for diet, skincare and hair care. I love eating them but haven't specifically sought out skincare containing avacado oil so couldn't wait to try this out. As I'm loving my Manuka honey day cream I decided to try the Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream, I've been testing it for the last month or so now so I could really see the effects it has on my skin.(L got the Rejoice light facial day cream that I'm sure she'll share soon.)

Paul Mitchell Express Ion Unclipped 3 in 1 in Rose Gold Styling Wand

Hey all

We're very happy to be part of the styling society for Salon Success this year. We love the Paul Mitchell, New CID and L'avoly products we've tried so fair and you can see some previous products we've loved here and here.

Today we're sharing with you the Express Ion Unclipped 3 in 1 in rose gold. It's fair to say we were both unbelievably excited when we opened it up as it's absolutely gorgeous!! We both have a huge selection of different shaped and sized tongs and couldn't wait to try them out. We wanted to show you the wands in action and how they look on different hair. L's hair is long with some layers and mine is shoulder length and mostly one length now.

I love the convenience of having the one handle that can give three different looks and I'm actually getting rid of my others since getting this. My hair feels and looks healthy after using the wands due to the ceramic barrels and express ion complex and not feeling crispy (as some of my current one's do!) plus they look so much prettier!!

The wand heads clip into the base and you're ready to go, it comes with a variety of heat settings dependent on your hair type. I tend to stick at 180 as for me the curls last well and I don't feel my hair is too damaged then.

Morphe Brushes 25B Bronzed Mocha Palette

Hi all!

We recently wrote about the Morphe 25A Copper Spice palette (you can read it by selecting this link Here) and now we have our review on the 25B Bronzed Mocha palette.

We couldn't resist buying both of these, we only saw one instagram post on the Morphe account to know we absolutely both needed to buy both of the palettes.

Morphe Brushes 25A Copper Spice Palette

Hi all!

Just after Christmas we both saw the new Morphe palettes advertised on their Instagram and couldn't resist picking both of them up. We were VERY excited and couldn't wait for them to arrive, it was a long few weeks waiting for them to be shipped to the UK and we were quite annoyed when the Customs Tax charge appeared too!

But eventually we got them and so our first review is the Copper Spice palette, or 25A.

Whirlwind Trip: Barcelona!

Hey there!

I recently wrote a post about a general life update with lots of pictures (you can find it by clicking here) and I mentioned I went to Barcelona for a work trip. I give training as part of my job and the latest trip was to a place just outside of Barcelona.

Celtic Manor Spa Weekend

Hey All

Before Christmas I was lucky enough to win a weekend break at The Celtic Manor with spa treatments. To say I was excited was an understatement and of course I took L with me. I've stayed in Coldra Court before (review here) but never the main resort so couldn't wait to see the difference.

We decided to book for the middle of January so we could relax after the Christmas rush. We headed down on Friday night after work to the resort.

We got settled into our room which had the most amazing marble bathroom! Of course we took selfies. The photos I took of the room didn't come out well and show it off to it's best. I think The Celtic Manor is a thing of preference with regards for decor, for me I love it, it's old fashioned but looks good and reminds me of the hotel I stayed in when I was in Disney.

Barry M Nail Polish - Mini Review 2

Hey all!

Last week I wrote a quick mini-review post on some recent Barry M purchases which you can read by clicking here. I've been buying a few different polishes with various finishes so I've got another few reviews for you today too.

First is a Coconut Infusion nail polish, this is called Paradise and is a typical nudey greige with a slight purple tone to it making it perfect for my super pale skin.
