Olivia Palermo for Ciate | Review

Having been a big fan of Ciate for a while, I was beyond excited when I heard that they were bringing out a collection with my ultimate style crush Olivia Palermo. Yep, the American socialite and front row regular has put her name (and signature) to a capsule collection of makeup and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I must admit I wasn't as excited about the prices, but then I spied some of the collection in my local TK Maxx store so snapped up 3 key pieces, and still had change from £20!

My Kiko Milano love affair started back in October when I purchased some products from their Rebel Romantic collection. Drawn in by the dreamy rose gold packaging, I needed no persuading to hand over my credit card, and after trying the products, I was even more hooked. Fast forward 3 months, and I have added some more pieces to my collection, all of which were reduced in price. Yep, Kiko currently have a HUGE January sale on, and with prices starting at £1, I would be rude not to, right?

Love Me Beauty | January Review

Last month I signed up to Love Me Beauty- a beauty subscription box with a difference. Working with a credit system, you can chose which products you want to receive each month, plus top up your credits at any time. With a minimum of 60 credits per month to use, you will receive at least £40 worth of FULL SIZED products all for £10 (excl P&P) per month. Amazing, huh? You can read what I chose in my first ever Love Me Beauty box here, and read on to see what arrived on my doorstep this month....

When it comes to high street fragrances, Next are top of their game with smell-a-likes. Yep, it probably drives the premium brands mad, but somehow they manage to create gorgeous fragrances with rather familiar scents, at a snip of the price. One of these is Define, an Eau De Parfum which I have loved for a few years now, mainly because it smells identical to She by Emporio Armani, but at less than £10 for 30ml, it is a third of the price!

A couple of years, Batiste was the only brand out there offering dry shampoo. A new concept, it took a while to get our heads around the fact we could skip hair washing day and instead spritz our locks with a powder based spray, but once we did it's safe to say we were hooked! Fast forward a couple of years, and every brand from drugstore, right through to premium brands have dry shampoo as part of their styling range, so I thought I would try out 2 of varying prices, and see whether paying extra equals better results.

I'll admit it, I am a perfume junky, and have always have more than one on the go at a time. I'd love to be one of these people who has a signature scent, but with so many great fragrances out there, I just can't ever stick to just one! When Rosie from Jigsaw emailed me to ask if I wanted to try the new Cosmopolitan fragrance, well, you can just guess what my immediate response was. The best selling glossy magazine has brought out a fragrance that claims to encapsulate their reader, who is a 'fun, fearless female.' The launch created somewhat of a media buzz, as they ran a competition to find 'the faces' of the fragrance, and they finally chose 3 amazing winners, Lisa, Stacey and Katy. You can read more about the campaign here
