Hiya Darlins If you are anything like me you will try many, many foundations searching for the ultimate one, and when you find it, it suddenly stops being "The One" and you are on the hunt again. I have recently been testing out Glo & Ray CC Colour Correction Luminous Base Foundation. 35 ml tube at £15.00, this is the second foundation I have tried from this Company, the first being Nebulae Fluid  which I loved.  This CC Foundation gives more coverage than the fluid, and r… Read more

Glo & Ray LA AMO Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour | Wonderland Hydrating Lip Gloss

Hiya Darlins You have seen me write about the make up brand Glo & Ray previously   Here , I love this brand for sheer quality and value, The quality is second to none and is on par with some real high end brands but without the high end price tags. I am not a huge lipstick lover, I think I probably only own about 5 in comparison to about 30 glosses, I am so pleased to have been given the opportunity to try the new La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour in the shade Tender for Glo & Ray,… Read more

Shake Weight Roll My Experience

Hiya Darlins As you know I am always looking for ways to shed a few pounds, and to be fair I could probably be called lazy when it comes to exercise, I am no gym bunny by any standards although I do like to do a bit at home, when I was presented with the opportunity to try out Shake Weight Roll, I admit to having a little grin and thinking oh here we go another gimmick that I won't use. Also to be honest I really couldn't see how hard it could be to shake a plastic gizmo........… Read more

Dressing Sexy at 60

Hi My Darlins This is a bit of a random post, it's one of those where the thought popped into my head and I wanted to share.  While I am a few months off of being 60 it made for a catchy title :) Is it possible to be sexy at 60 ?  what is sexy even ?  I have heard it said that we either dress for men or other women, I personally don't hold with this view, I do however get the theory behind it, there are women, and yes we all know at least one that clearly dresses for the attenti… Read more

Ingenious Beauty Ultimate Collagen +

Hi Darlins now it's no secret to any of you that I am a huge fan of Collagen supplements, I really do believe that looking after yourself is not just a case of throwing on skin care products and hoping for the best. also when we think of skin care and boosting collagen we automatically think of the face, my personal experience with collagen supplements has gone much further than the increased benefits to my facial skin and \I have noticed improvements in lots of other areas. When yo… Read more

Back In The Game

Hiya Darlins apologies for being MIA for the last couple of weeks, maybe you have enjoyed the break from my constant rambling :) I have been totally floored by a revolting Virus, the lickle beastie started off as a sore throat and temperature, and as we do as women I dismissed it as ( just a cold )  ohhhh noooo I totally underestimated the power of this devil, every single day It struck me with something new, and instead of improving daily as I expected I ended up worse and worse, with … Read more

Bargain Make Up Brushes of the Century

Hiya Darlins Pretty right ?  I have to start by saying I do not need another brush, I probably have enough to last me as long as I will be painting this old face of mine, that said........just look, the shiny shiny colours and perfectly baby soft bristles. I know that right now some of you really clever girls are looking at this going, oh but it's not a MAC 45689756875735976976 or a Zoeeva $$&%(&(^(^(  and you are right, they aint. But I am no make up artist either and for a… Read more

Denim Mini Skirt

Hiya Darlins I just saw an ad on a very trendy clothing site for denim mini skirts, apparently they are the "new" thing. One of the joys of being a old crone is that nothing is "new" anymore and you can have a little grin to yourself at the thought that once in your life you were trendy, the downside being is that had you have been a clothing hoarder you could have made a killing selling your trendy wares on Depop. It wasn't 5 minutes ago that denim mini skirts we… Read more

I was really lucky to meet Co Owner Huw Miller recently from the Ufit Protein Drinks Company, we chatted about the pro… Read more

I love lace and I love masks so sounded like one to try.  Before I go into the ingredients of this mask I want… Read more

The Stawberry Trick

Hiya Darlins I had to share this clever little trick with you as taught to me by my Grandaughter, the easiest way in the world to remove the stalks from Strawberries. Simply insert a straw ( plastic is best ) into the base of the Strawberry and push it through. The core and the stalk literally slide out in the straw !!! Flipping genius. You are left with perfect berries ready to eat :) Happy Strawberries and cream days. Love N Hugz Lyn x Read more
