Instant Effects Instant Lip Plumper

Hiya Darlins In this day and age it seems that the world and his brother seem to get their lips *done* I even tried it myself once with a small amount of injectable in the top lip, it made virtually no difference, or nothing that I could notice anyway, since then I have tried various products that promise a visible improvement,  I have to be honest and say that I do enjoy the ones that sting as though they are really working, when in fact apart from the sting nothing else happens, I ha… Read more

Makeup Over 60

Hi Loves This isn't a make up lesson, my lord I am in no position to teach anyone anything, everyday I learn something new on the internet, but yesterday for some reason I had a little play with my phone camera when I was doing my face, anyone that knows me will know that this is beyond rare !  I hate photo's being taken of me with a passion, I don't have a problem with getting older at all, but I think that being conditioned by beautiful images in magazines and the interne… Read more

Liz Earle Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask | Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer

Hiya Darlins The reason I have mixed these two products together on this one post is that  they naturally work together, although you of course could use just one. Liz Earle Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask 50ml This is a rich thick creamy almost dry feeling mask, by that I mean it sits on the skin without any movement, it isn't dry and chalky although It does feel drier  after a few minutes on the skin. Blended with naturally active ingredients including Borage seed oil, Apricot … Read more

I need no excuse for new sandals ever, these ones I discovered at Simply Be, they are from Dune and for me, just perfect, no longer can I wear 6 inch heels, and I do love a flip flop but just sometimes you need something a little more glam than a flip flop for giving you a bit of height a… Read more

Instant Effects Instant Lash Volumiser

Hi Lovely Fancy longer thicker healthier lashes ?  stupid question, don't we all want that ? I have been using a product lately that gives just that, it's not one of those white mascara's that give the temporary effect of thicker lashes, it a clear serum in the form of a mascara wand that can be used on both lashes and brows, within 2 minutes you have instantly thicker looking lashes and brow hairs that have been increased by 20% simply coat the lashes in the serum and appl… Read more

Hi Darlins Who doesn't know of Liz Earle ? well maybe not personally, you may not have been to hers for tea, but I can't imagine anyone never having heard of the  Liz Earle Brand.

Salon Science Thickening Serum for thinning hair

Hi My Loves Is thinning hair something that is common in mature women ?  having seen lot's of product reviews for this particular problem it made me want to look further into the subject, from what I have gathered ruling out things like illness, hair loss in older women is often hereditary it does not seemed to be linked to menopause although around 50-60 is when we would notice the thinning which is what leads people to believe it is menopause related, it seems the main cause is y… Read more
