Nail of the Day – Sinful Colors Thimbleberry

Sinful Colors is a cheap and cheerful (but still good quality) nail polish brand that I have been trying out over the last few months. Their in-store displays are so bright and colourful I’ve found it almost impossible to resist trying out a new shade when I wander past – oops! Thimbleberry is a vibrant orange-red that is even brighter in person (sometimes photos just don’t seem to do nail polish shades justice)! It’s perfect for lazy summer days and goes on really  ...

Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion

I have to admit I was a little slow to climb up onto the bandwagon that is this amazing little gem. I saw plenty of bloggers raving about how fab it was, but I just wasn’t convinced that something quickly applied and washed off could give me the same level of moisture as a lotion left to soak in. Boy was I wrong (and I am totally fine with that… but just this once)! Lately I have been trying to step it up (pun totally intended) in the fitness arena and have been working out, and showering  ...

January Bellabox

I get the feeling I’m receiving my Bellabox far later than many other subscribers as I have been seeing posts about these for the last two weeks and only just got it! However there did seem to be quite a variation of products this month so thought I would show you what I was sent. Vaseline Aloe Fresh Body LotionWhile I love this lotion for soothing dehydrated skin after a day in the sun, I’m not sure I am very keen on this sample. These tiny bottles tend to be quite tricky to  ...

My Gym Bag Essentials

Back into my usual workout routine this week after a little too much time off (and too many treats) over the Christmas break and I thought I would share with you my beauty essentials that make those boot camp sessions that little bit more bearable! After quite a few years going to the gym/bootcamp I’ve narrowed it down to just a few products that save me time and leave me looking slightly more presentable when I’m done. Here goes: Carmex Strawberry Lip BalmThis is amazing for  ...

Nail of the Day – OPI Sweetheart

During the Christmas holidays I was rocking a beautiful fire engine red shellac on my nails and while I absolutely loved it, I do have a bit of a bad habit of picking it off once it starts flaking – a huge no-no! I totally know I shouldn’t do it but I seem to find myself picking away until mo poor little nails are torn up and brittle underneath (eek!). I decided on painting them a neutral polish shade to try and cover up some of the damage until they have had a bit of a chance  ...

25 Random Facts About Me

I have seen quite a few variations of these doing the rounds on YouTube and blogs lately and I thought it would be a fun way for you to get to know me a little more than what I usually share with you on the blog. Here goes… I absolutely hate writing in blue pens. No idea why but I will go searching high and low for a black one rather than use the blue. I had laser eye surgery when I was 22 and no longer need glasses (I wore them full time before that). The best thing I have ever done and I  ...

Nail of the Day – Revlon Bubbly

A few years ago I was utterly obsessed with this pretty pink polish. I had it on my nails for almost a year constantly and the bond was only broken when I managed to lose my precious bottle – devastation! I’m not really sure why I didn’t run out and repurchase it there and then but time meant it was forgotten until I saw it once again on sale for half price and simply couldn’t pass it up! It’s such a pretty mid-tone pink and it has such a lovely creamy finish.  ...

2013 Favourites

After a massive cull to prevent this post taking you all three days to read, I finally selected my absolute, hands-down, favourite products from 2013. Even now, I’m resisting the urge to throw a few more back into the mix for good measure – eek! Drumroll please…Victoria’s Secret Shiny Kiss Lip Gloss in Candy BabyI have a bit of a stash of these going on and find these to be the perfect gloss. Non-sticky but thick enough that it lasts on my lips, this can be applied on it’s own or  ...

Time for some December empties…

There’s something satisfying about getting to the end of the month and tipping out my bin to see all the products I’ve used up – plus it keeps Mr GPG happy since I no longer have empty containers lying around! I’ve decided I’m on a bit of a mission this year to use up the tons of sample tubes and sachets I have been hoarding (yep, there really is no other word for it – whoops) from sample boxes. I have a funny little thing where I like to save them for “travelling” but let’s be honest –  ...
