PUR On Point Lip Liner

PUR On Point Lip Liner


Hiya Darlins
I am continuing with my love of PUR Cosmetics by trialling the impressive range of Lip Liner shades. It's a funny thing how years ago Lip Liner was seldom used, or when it was you had the definite contrast of a light lipstick with a darker liner, nowadays Lip Liners are as much part of our daily make up routine as mascara, and I for one couldn't imagine making up without one, I think no matter what your age every ones lips benefit from a little definition and these PUR On Point Lip Liners cover every angle.

I recently wrote about the PUR Quick Pro Lip Kit which I loved and found to be incredible value.

These Lip Liners are infused with plumping peptide with gives the outline of the lips a fuller plumper look, prevents feathering of lipstick and gives you the perfect definition and guideline which is especially helpful if you are using dark shades that need a more precision application.  I have actually used these pencils as lipsticks as the formula is both moisturising and non drying. the lid of the twist up pencil has a handy hidden sharpener, these apply easily and are long lasting, the beauty of PUR Cosmetics is that you know only the best paraben free ingredients are being applied to your face, which have never been tested on animals, and are suitable for vegans.


  • Paraben Free
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for any skin type

Struggling With Routine

Hi Loves
Yesterday as you will know if you follow me on Instagram, saw me adding yet another Ikea storage cupboard to the office. It got me thinking at how those images could have had me looking perfectly  organised and in control. Nothing could be further from the the truth, I fly through life by the seat of my pants, and I honestly cannot fathom why.

I have days where I get up before the birds, go into the office at home and work like a mad woman, leaving exhausted but feeling smug, I then proceed to tell everyone how good I have been and how good it felt, stating that this is now my new routine and I am going to be on top of things LOL. Only to be found the following day doing housework, cooking up some random recipe, pottering around, spending an easy 2 hours on the phone to one of my blogging buddies and generally wasting the day.  I go to bed, regretting wasting yet another day and thinking tomorrow I will get organised. I really would like a shrink to analyse my confused brain to tell me why I fight with routine so much. Maybe, having bought up my children and being self employed for the large part of my life had me chained to so much routine that at this old age I am rebelling against it? I envy those who are in control, although my mind says, ah that's boring I would actually quite like to be boring and have some flipping routine.  Him indoors, gets up before dawn, walks the dog at the same time, leaves the house at the same time, returns at the same time. In fact you could time his actions, where, I on the other hand fight routine every step of the way.  Is it just me?  am I odd? when life would be so much better with structure, why do I let it fly out of the window?  I wish I knew the answer.

Maybe this is something that only self employed people suffer with?  when you work you don't have choices, but now I have choices why are they the wrong ones? OR ARE THEY?  maybe I should just accept that this is me, this is now my normal. The postman should not expect to see me dressed and made up in the mornings, and my fridge should not expect to be cleaned on a certain day, maybe I should just go with the flow and let life just do it's thing?  all this would be great if I were not a control freak, which is totally contradictory to how my life runs now.

You know what?  I have no clue why I have written this post, maybe I started out thinking I could justify being unorganised with my time. But no, I have just been left feeling guilty again, thinking I need to get into the office and continue filling the Ikea storage!  Hey Ho -  I guess as they say "all the saints are in heaven" 

How do you cope with being on top of things? any hints would be gratefully received, failing that

JOJO SIWA Be You Eau de Parfum






Hi Loves
You may or may not have heard of JoJo Siwa, I confess to not having heard of her, that said at my age (61) I don't keep up too much with TV or what the youngsters are into. When I spoke to my girls they were hysterical at the thought that I didn't know the girl with *BOWS*  from the TV show Dance Moms, so obviously I had to do do some research as I hate being out of the loop.  All I can say is WOW this little one is a cult phenomenon and actually I can see why, she has the most infectious personality and I can see why all the girls ages 8-14 would want to be her bestie.



Here is a brief rundown of what this little star has achieved so far.

She was just 12 years old when she won a nations heart with her over-sized hair bows and bagful of talent on the TV show Dance Moms.  Fast forward a few years and JoJo Siwa has become one of the biggest Internet sensations, with her YouTube Vlog channel regularly reaching a mere 90million + views, and has an army of followers worldwide.
At just 14 years old she’s a singer, dancer, actress and entrepreneur with a complete range of Jo Jo merchandise and many awards to her name.  She won the Kids Choice Award for 2017 and was named Digital Star for the year alongside Kim Kardashian and Patrick Starr – and it seems there is just no stopping her!


I recently read a blog post from Countryheartandhome where her girls were addicted to JoJo and were discovering merchandise.
When I was offered the perfume to try out, I got in touch with my youngest Granddaughter Mya (15) who knew everything there was to know about Jo Jo and said a quick "yes please" let me just say, this kid is fussy, her perfume range includes designers such as Mark Jacobs. Also I can 100% rely on Mya to tell it like it is!
JoJo Siwa Be You. Eau de Parfum
First impression was that she loved the bottle, and of course it's pink! on spritzing found the fragrance really sweet and not an instant hit, however within moments it settled down to a gorgeous delicate floral which dare I say is slightly sophisticated. I can totally see this fragrance being "borrowed" by Mums. Clean and fresh with a definite girlie vibe this has become a firm favourite.
I love how young girls nowadays are their own people. When I was young there was not a chance of having your own fragrance until you were old enough to buy Charlie, and no way was my Mum dabbing me with Je Riviens Evening in Paris lol.

All in all I would call this a winner, I am now down with the kids, Mya is happy and smelling fabulous and I have been able to share this with you for daughters and granddaughters.

GOSH Turn Me On Mascara | GOSH Fake It Primer





Hiya Darlins
Every new season I look forward to the new releases from GOSH Copenhagen, I truly think this brand needs a huge amount of attention, they are innovative quality products at a really good price.

I do have a few things to share with you from this years SS18 range which I will be featuring, but a couple of pieces instantly jumped out at me.  Firstly the new shades in




Gosh Lip Oil
 I wrote about these when Gosh first released them in 2016. Once again they surpass brands at 4 x the price and as always these are totally on trend, this time in holographic shades, there are three in the collection, show here are 007 Crystal Star and 006 Flower Essence. Interestingly these are the same price as 2016, bet not many brands could claim to be so competitive in the price range!




Gosh Fake It! Lash Primer


This primer not only adds thickness and length to your lashes it separates and conditions at the same time thanks to the addition of Hyaluronic acid.
My lashes are blonde/clear so I don't usually notice too much if I use a primer, but this one is grey! I instantly saw a dramatic difference in the length and fullness of the lashes, can be used under any mascara. I tested it with ........





Gosh Turn Me On Vibrating Mascara

I was desperate to try this as I remembered many years ago another vibrating mascara being on the market, I can't for the life of me remember who made it, but I do remember it flinging black spots all over the eye and under eye area, it was a disaster!  Things have come a long way, and I tested this out with trepidation. To my delight the buzzing wand is fabulous, it was almost like having the mascara applied for you, the sensation is a little strange at first, and to be fair I did think it would be just a novelty item, but it worked! each lash was coated perfectly both top and bottom, I think a delicate hand is definitely needed as I got a bit over confident with the second eye and blobbed. Overall I really like this, one thing is for sure, it definitely saves time!

Gosh Turn Me On Vibrating Mascara is currently available, the release date on the new SS18 collection is February 2018 so the items will filter through and become available this month.


The combination of Gosh Fake It and Gosh Turn Me On resulted in pretty good looking lashes, longer, fuller but more than anything separated with no clumps.

DIRECTIONS 

 Each Morning & Evening
 STEP 1:  Apply Balancing Cleanser onto the face, neck and decolletage, adding a few drops of water to create a creamy emulsion. Continue to massage gently then rinse off with lots of warm water or a warm, damp face cloth. Double cleanse as required if you’re wearing stubborn, colourfast makeup.

STEP 2:  Apply Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream to clean, dry skin using the applicator wand to glide a small amount of cream around the orbital bone. Gently press around the periocular area using your ring fingers. A gentle patting motion will stimulate micro-circulation to help improve the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.

STEP 3:  Apply your preferred serum and day/night cream.

 Each Alternate Evening
 STEP 1:  Apply Balancing Cleanser onto the face, neck and decolletage, adding a few drops of water to create a creamy emulsion. Continue to massage gently then rinse off with lots of warm water or a warm, damp face cloth. Double cleanse as required if you’re wearing stubborn, colourfast makeup.

STEP 2:  Apply Liquid Gold using a cotton pad to the face, neck and decolletage, avoiding the eye and lip areas. A slight tingling sensation may be experienced.
For maximum benefit leave on overnight and do not follow with a night cream, but allow Liquid Gold to work 'uninterrupted' while you sleep.

STEP 3:  Apply Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream to clean, dry skin using the applicator wand to glide a small amount of cream around the orbital bone. Gently press around the periocular area using your ring fingers. A gentle patting motion will stimulate micro-circulation to help reduce the appearance of puffiness.

TOM’S SALON TIPS
• If your skin is sensitive or if you have never used Glycolic products before then I  recommend you add Liquid Gold gradually to your homecare routine, using the product   1-2 nights a week. You can even begin by applying Liquid Gold using a cotton pad, which has been dampened with a little warm water. Do this for the first couple of weeks   and then graduate to applying the product using a dry cotton pad.

• Use Liquid Gold on three alternate nights each week and use your favourite serums, facial oils or moisturisers the following evening.

• Add Liquid Gold to any existing skincare routine to supercharge your results.  Reducing  the build-up of dead cells means that your other serums, masks and creams will penetrate more effectively.

• I recommend you use a daily moisturiser with an SPF of at least factor 15 when using  Glycolic products.

• Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream makes a fantastic daily primer for eye shadow and under-eye concealer. 

• Keep your Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream in the fridge so it’s extra cooling and feels more tightening on the skin!

• And here’s one for the guys! If you have coarse hair, stubble or other facial furniture you can forgo the cotton pad and dispense five drops of Liquid Gold into the palms of your hands, then simply pat the solution into the face and neck.
