Origins VitaZing

I got this yesterday and have just tried it this morning. It's a tinted moisturiser! Nowhere does it say this is so on the packaging. How utterly bizarre. Having read about it on the Origins site, it says it adds a healthy hint of radiance that mimics a week's vacation.

I have to say that I am already loving it. It is one of those tinted moisturisers that blends with your skintone and adds a tiny hint of colour rather than a full on orange face. It also mattifies your skin ready for make-up. I am delighted I got this ready for Spring/Summer and can already tell it is a winner. Recommended. I do love Origins skincare.

Sometimes you just need to spend some money

It was time to go and sweep the Peter Jones beauty department today. As I have said, I've wanted some purple mascara for a while. I went to MAC where there was NO SIGN of any Wonder Woman stuff. Woe.

Instead I went to YSL in Peter Jones and got this in Burgundy.

I also got these three products from Origins.




I then got this hand cream for CoverBoy as it's his favourite.

And a friend recommended this.


And so I came home happy with my haul. Can't wait to try the mascara. Full reporting will occur.

Eight hour cream - anniversary edition

It's soooo pretty and therefore I had to have it. It lives on my desk at work and makes me smile every time I see it. It's the small things...

RIP Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor has always been a bit of a figure of fun to me. It's easy to forget how gorgeous she was. Look at this photo.


It's timeless. I love everything about it, including that coral lipstick. Wonder where I can get one in that shade? As if I could ever rock it like Liz though.

Famous for her love with Richard Burton, I just did a Google to look at some pictures of them. Oh my word. Smokin'! This one is so glamorous. We can only dream of looking so elegant, sexy and amazing all in one photo.

I think this one is so cute and relaxed. Loving her outfit here too.


And this one is gorgeous - a holiday snapshot by the looks of it. Look at her earrings! What a woman.


I know this has little to do with make-up (except the lipstick!) but I think when a Hollywood legend dies,  you take a moment to remember why they were legendary. RIP Liz. Hope you're somewhere with Richard.

Nail colour of the week

Opi: Shootout at the OK Coral. Contender for one of the best names? I think so. I subscribed to Red magazine last month simply because they had an offer of three free Opi nail varnishes. What's an addict to do? This is one of them and I put it on this morning and I kind of love it.

Normally I hate corals on me but somehow this works. It's bright, I'm not gonna lie, but in today's glorious sunshine, it was just the ticket. This is a classic holiday toe colour. I might book a holiday just so I can start planning...

Nail colour of the week

Merino Cool - Essie. I love this colour. It's a perfect neutral grey with a bit of depth to it. The kind of colour you could wear for weeks and it won't annoy you. And that's all I have to say about it!

MAC - Wonder Woman



Oh my giddy aunt. Check it out people! I am late to the party with this as the beauty bloggers are all over this new range from MAC. It's so covetable. Frankly, I don't even care what the cosmetics are like with packaging like this.

I've not looked at this up close yet - but oh, I totally plan to. However, I notice they do a purple mascara and I've been wanting to try purple mascara for a while. Black is so obvious, no? A purple Wonder Woman mascara? I am actually almost too excited to type.

I shall be reporting back.

Compagnie de Provence Foam Bath

Another day, another new bubble bath to tell you about. I love this brand - Compagnie de Provence. The packaging really appeals to me as I like simple clean lines and their stuff always smells wonderful. I ordered this from lookfantastic.com and I got it in Fresh Verbena and Wild Rose.

Both are heavenly but the Verbena one is especially lovely. Zingy and fresh without being like washing up liquid, I applaud it. You too can buy it here. I want to try Summer Grapefruit next.
