Figs & Rouge

I received my Figs & Rouge lips face and body balm in a recent Glossy Box. I've never been a fan of the traditional rose scent so wasn't desperate to try as my balm was 'Rambling Rose'
How wrong was I?? I can smell the rose, but not as in the old fashion perfume way. It is fairly sweet but just makes my mouth water each time I smell it.
I have used this mostly as a cuticle balm throughout the day. Although on contact it's a little 'grainy' it melts into the skin and is so moisturising. It also leaves a lovely sheen.
Have since bought the full size in Rambling Rose & also Wild Cherry (smells lovely, almost orangey with a slight aniseed twist) from Boots priced at £4.99.
The balm is 100% organic and I don't think I ever want to be without the cute little tin.

L'oreal EverPure Shampoo & Conditioner

Up until a couple of months ago, I always used Redken shampoo and conditioner, however, I saw the EverPure non sulphate cleansing system in my local boots and thought I would give it a go.
From the range I am using colour care and moisture which are enriched with botanical rosemary and juniper oils. The conditioner also contains mint oils.
I wash and straighten my hair everyday (I know I shouldn't but just cant stand the feeling if I don't) and from the first use, I loved the results from the 2 products on my over processed hair.
My hair is now silky soft, shiny, manageable and has no build up (I always got build up with Redken).
The shampoo has a herby smell but it's not unpleasant. I only use a small amount but this lathers fantastically well. It rinses out easily with no residue leaving my hair feeling really clean.
The conditioner smells fresh and minty. Once applied, I comb through in the shower with my Tangle Teezer and my hair looks and feels moisturised.
My colour has lasted without any fade at all - no more lank lifeless hair!
I love the look of the packaging, however the tubes are slightly flimsy. Not really a problem though.
I would highly recommend these products. They are of salon quality and if you can pick it up whilst on offer even better - I got mine on 2 for £9.

Lollipop Nails

I have an obsession with nail polish and at the moment, I am loving this colour. It's Leighton Denny's Lollipop with a coat of Angel Dust over the top to give a delicate sparkle. Love love love Leighton's polishes. Easy to apply, great coverage and long lasting too.

Wow Mascara

I am definitely a mascara girl and my long journey to find my perfect mascara may be over. I do love Laura Geller's products and after being so let down by many other big brand mascaras, I thought I would give Laura's 'Wow' mascara a try, which is fragrance and paraben free.
I haven't been dissapointed. A rich glossy black mascara that looks the same at the end of the day as when I first applied it. No clumping or smudging, it thickens and curls my lashes in just a couple of coats. The brush is a great size and shape which makes applying a breeze - it's easy to pick up and coat every lash, top and bottom.
I have found this to be brilliant for my sensitive eyes, and it's easy to remove at the end of the day, with no sign of panda eyes in the morning.
Packaging is a sleek metallic gun metal grey tube which will grace any make up bag.
I'm really happy with this product which is currently priced at £16.50 on

What is your favourite mascara?


My first post had to be about Savannah.  She's 4, and we've had her for just over a year now. She's into everything, completely kitten like and is spoilt rotten! She's also extremely vocal which isn't much fun when you're trying to get a Sunday lie in. How can something so cute be so noisy?!
