There aren’t a lot of newbies added to the beauty bag recently which is a good sign as I’m loving the products I’m currently using. Nevertheless I do have two to show you.
These products are stand outs. One I was a bit skeptical about buying and the other was a gift from a friend. Both have turned out to be super impressive and I’m so glad they have been added to my current skin care routine. With these newbies I continue to use Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask and am scraping every last drop out of it. Now there has been the odd night of not washing my face at all but even with that I feel like I’ve struck gold with the current combination of products. Continue reading
Clinique x Marimekko
My beauty bag is looking extra healthy the past few months with some new products taking centre stage on my bathroom shelf. Just before Lucille was born I was in desperate need for a pick me up and it was perfect timing as Clinique had collaborated with Marimekko and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on what was on offer.

There’s a new concealer in my beauty bag this month and one that came recommended by you. I have been a long time user of Rimmel’s Match Perfection Concealer and felt there was no need to try something new but when something gets recommended by a lovetomtom reader, I know it’s worth a go.

Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara
It’s time to go back to the beauty bag with another mascara. You know how much I love the L’Oréal Miss Baby Roll mascara and I was reluctant to try anything else but a number of people recommended this new mascara to me so I thought I would give it a whirl.
I was going to wait to post this just to give you a break from mascara but I think it’s perfect timing. Perfect timing given how much I loved the last mascara I tried and how much I dislike this one. I’m sure there are going to be many of you who will think I’m bonkers but I really dislike the Urban Decay Troublemaker mascara so much, I can’t even use it! Continue reading
The never-ending search for the perfect mascara
My search for the perfect mascara continues. I feel like it is a never-ending mission and despite all of the hundreds of mascaras I buy, I do feel I’m getting closer but never fully satisfied. Continue reading
Something for Dessert
I have gone banana bread mad the past few weeks and for very good reason; banana bread is delicious! You all think so too and sent me some great recipes. I’m not stopping at just one so be prepared to see many versions of banana bread over the next few weeks. Continue reading
I’ve been experimenting with moisturisers the past little while and I tell you, I fear I’ve been missing out! I thought I had worked out my skin care routine and was happy with how my skin was looking but it seems I’ve been doing things all wrong.
I tend not to pay too much attention to moisturisers mostly because I feel the skin care products I use provide me with enough moisture. I’ve been mistaken. Recently a friend gave me a sample of the new Vichy Slow Âge range. Actually she gave me two products to try; the cream moisturiser and the fluid moisturiser. I used both products and couldn’t tell the difference between them. But either way, I did notice a huge difference in my skin. Using the moisturisers day and night I felt my skin was much softer, my make-up seemed to apply better and overall my skin looked fresh and plump. All clichéd terms when it comes to skin care but I can’t think of a better way to describe it. Continue reading
