It Cosmetics Complexion Perfection collection

It Cosmetics Complexion Perfection collection

It Cosmetics, much like Colour Pop, is a brand that us UK beauty-lovers have been hearing about for years without being able to get our hands on. Thanks to QVC, we can finally buy their products, if only a small selection of them. I won the It Cosmetics Complexion Perfection Collection on QVC’s Instagram a […]

Spring shopping list

Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil Rose Lemonade text

Guess who’s back, back again? Mouse’s back, tell your…..yeah, ok, sorry. Definitely not cool enough to pull that intro off. It’s been quiet around here for the last couple of weeks – starting a new job is always hectic, especially when you’re in a new city, and I have to admit that most of my […]

Five Happy happenings 23

It’s been a busy few weeks in the Mouse House as I got a new job in Edinburgh and had four weeks to find somewhere to live, hand over my old job, and prepare to move to a different city (and country). It’s now Sunday afternoon, Mr Mouse has just gone back to Durham for […]

Does Colourpop live up to the hype?

Does Colourpop live up to the hype?

There’s nothing like limited availability to make something desirable, and for us in the U.K., Colourpop has traditionally been almost impossible to get hold of. They now do international shipping and I finally got to satisfy my curiosity about the supposedly unique eyeshadow formula and the amazing liquid lipsticks. The fact that they’d done a […]

February fashion and beauty wish list

Feb fashion & beauty wish list

I don’t know about anyone else but January has felt like a seriously long month. What with the frankly appalling state of politics at the moment (on both sides of the Pond, let alone further afield), work-stress, not feeling brilliant, and possibly doing slightly too much online shopping to metaphorically drown my sorrows, December’s pay day […]

Review: Samaya Ayurvedic Pitta Anti-Ageing cream

Review: Samaya Ayurvedic Pitta Anti-Ageing Cream

I mentioned the Samaya Anti-Ageing Cream* in my post about my winter evening skincare and I thought I’d write a proper review, now that I’ve been using it for a good couple of months. As I mentioned then, Samaya is a relatively new, all-natural, brand based on Ayurvedic principles, using “finest authentic elements of Ayurveda, marrying […]
