Now that spring is finally here, I have found myself being drawn to wearing more colour on my face. So when these limited edition Skybreaker eyeliner pencils from Glo & Ray arrived on my desk I was pretty excited. This set contains 6 eyeliners and a pencil sharpener to ensure they stay sharp and ready to use.
I have followed the work of Nagi at DISCO nails for a few years and have always been in awe. She creates tiny works of art that are so detailed and perfect that I just stare at them in amazement.
I never ever thought I’d be lucky enough to get my nails done by her, firstly because she’s based in Japan and secondly because I assumed she’d be booked up for months in advance! At the beginning of February I achieved a dream and went to Japan for 2 weeks and while I was there I took a chance and got in touch with DISCO nails to see if they had an opening for a manicure. And lucky for me, she did – cue lots of screaming and clapping!
Let’s get right to it, here are the beautiful nails I had done:
This beautiful polish is from the All That Jazz ‘Spotlight Affair’ collection. As soon as I laid my eyes on this collection I was won over. These are gorgeous, classic shades that I know I will get loads of wear from.
I have a confession, this post should have gone out before Christmas but it failed to upload and I didn’t notice as I took some time off from the internet due to the loss of a family member. So I apologise for the oddly festive detailing in this blog post… just ignore it. Or pretend that you’re being really organised and planning for next Christmas!
An Evening With Burt’s Bees
The lovely ladies from Burt’s Bees asked me to come along to their shop in Soho for an evening of champagne, mince pies and beauty products. That’s pretty much an ideal evening in my book!
Meg from Lips So Facto was there talking to us about her favourite pieces from the Burt’s Bees range. If you don’t already follow her blog you can take a look at her thoughts on the Burt’s Bees lip products range HERE.
The gift boxes are adorable, just look at how cute they are! These are perfect for presents for friends, family and those people you inevitably have to buy for who you don’t really know!
Their lip products are all moisturising and caring for lips (which is a godsend in this cold weather) but are also super pretty – tinted shiny glosses, balms, glossy soft balm pencils and pigmented smooth glosses.
I didn’t even realise that Burt’s Bees did a mother and baby range, but it is all very sweet. And it would be a relief to know that it’s all natural and safe for both.
I couldn’t resist these lip balms as I ADORE my coconut and pear one, so I got some a presents for my sisters and mum. The chocolate and blueberry one in particular went down very well!
Have you tried any Burt’s Bees products? What is your favourite?
Fancy a sneak peek into this month’s Birchbox? Of course you do!
(In case you don’t know what Birchbox do or what I’m talking about, take a look HERE.)
January has rolled around and if you’re anything like me, all of your clothes feel that little bit tighter and you’ve probably made countless (unrealistic) resolutions to sort out your lifestyle and eating. Well, Birchbox are here to help.
