Dr Perricone Blue Plasma Review

I decided it was about time I gave my eyes some attention, although I have been fairly lucky in the wrinkle department, it is an area that I have neglected and not paid too much special attention to, that's not saying I don't have a basket full of eye creams and eye roll on tubes that I have tried in the past, I have either bought them or they seem to be a standard in the gift beauty sets that come at Christmas, my experience so far has not made me want to use these creams as … Read more

Bigger Stronger Faster and Me

Today I had the joy of attending my very first Bigger Stronger Faster competition,  Now before you get seriously impressed it was not me entering, it was my Daughters partner and we were along for support, there were both men and women from various clubs across the country competing with each other for the title of Bigger Stronger Faster.  I was seriously impressed at all the competitors for their grit and determination, more than anything our gorgeous Zak who continued after his hands… Read more

Hamper Gift Box Review

Hamper Gift Boxes are the brainchild of Sally Hewitt,  she set about devising these great hampers as a way for people to keep in touch with Family and friends by way of a gift, Gifts can really be for any occasion although we usually only think about Christmas and Birthdays, My favourite type of gift is the *thinking of you* for no reason gift, above and beyond anything else I think that's the one that does it for me. I am a very lucky woman in that, my Daughters and Grandaughters … Read more

Timeless Truth Beauty Masks Review

Timeless Truth Beauty Masks or TT Masks as they are known on Twitter are the baby of Angela Barbageleta, a gorgeous lady that I recently had the pleasure of meeting.  Angela is the exclusive UK distributor of these masks and discovered them on a trip to the Far East. To simply call them a mask is an understatement, they are a facial sheet that give you the feel and look of a top salon experience in your own home. If you have not used a sheet mask before it really is quite an experience !… Read more

Hand Chemistry Review

Hand Chemistry from Deciem. This product was really new for me and if I am honest I thought £19.99 was a fair bit to pay for a hand cream, but.......this is no ordinary hand cream !  First I will give you the claims from the product. Intense youth complex ( liking the sound of that ) Concentrated multi functional hand cream targets 8 signs of hand ageing simultaneously. The extraordinary 19.5 % active complex concentration visibly improves firmness, elasticity,density, evenness, brightnes… Read more

Grow Gorgeous Overnight Hair Masque

Grow Gorgeous Overnight to Gorgeous air Masque I for one have never used an Overnight hair product, let me just start by saying if you plan a romantic evening, give it a miss that night ! I think it's one of those products that are best used when you are alone, send him away fishing, golfing or whatever other boring pursuit takes his fancy, and spend a whole evening/night of fully pampering, in fact go even further and book an overnight spa stay and take this product with you :)  win… Read more

I Can See Cearly Now

The day has finally come when I need to give in to the fact that I need glasses for real ! I remember as a kid wanting glasses thinking they would make me looking clever and bookish, I really did need help looking clever it was no joke :) And of recent years I have been buying the reading specs that you test yourself in the supermarket, this has actually worked for me in fairness, and I truthfully believed I only needed them as print was getting smaller on products and I was bored of st… Read more

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Review

I was asked to test this teeth whitening kit by The American Company Smile Brilliant, Although I personally didn't want to try it Mr Lavender Barn jumped at the chance, although I never felt he needed it, teeth whitening was something he had always thought about doing.  The cost at the dentist is pretty horrendous and having it done in a beauty salon didn't quite seem right to me so this was the ideal solution, a product from a company that only specialise in this area, his vol… Read more

Kevyn Aucion The Sensual Skin Enhancer Review

I first Discovered Kevyn Aucion in Space NK the home for all things Cult status. I picked up this little pot not really knowing what it was and tried it on my wrist, OMG the perfect coverage for any blemish possible, it actually felt like soft putty clay, seeing my interest the gorgeous assistant explained to me that it was a multi- purpose product that could be used as a foundation, highlighter or concealer ..............SAY WHAT ?  Anyway, something else took my interest and I was awa… Read more

Glo & Ray Make Up Review

Glo & Ray may be a company you are not familiar with, they really are worth discovering, beautiful make up that really is great quality with reasonable prices, The range isn't huge but what they do sell is quality to match most high end price tags. Having tried the foundation   I decided to venture further with more make up. This time the most beautifully pigmented  Nuage powder blusher that comes in it's own  mirror compact, complete with brush.  I chose  Dawn Seed number 50… Read more

Am I Grey ?

This is just a little post , about the slogan "Am I Grey ? "  which I spotted on tee shirts worn by the models at the Grey Model Agency in London  www.greymodelagency.com , this is a specialist agency ( yes I know it's obvious ) who celebrate gorgeous grey models, who in my, for what it's worth opinion are highly under utilised in today's market. If you look at the men and women on this site, you will actually want to turn grey they are so gorgeous, and a fabulous r… Read more
