It’s no secret that I”m a huge fan of Christmas. Every year, without fail, I drive my boyfriend, family and friends mad with my festive enthusiasm; be it chopping down the tree, decorating the tree, buying presents, wrapping presents, or generally just talking about all thing Christmas, I just can’t get enough.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have a pretty large collection of beauty products – it’s certainly not the most expansive that I’ve seen, but it’s up there… Anywho, will all that excellent make-up action going on in there, occasionally some products do get left at the back of a drawer, and go …

I used to really enjoy putting together these wish lists – and once upon a time was popping them up on here once a month – and it’s been a long ole while since I last did one. With my move to New York looming on the horizon (for more about that, head to this post), I’m …

While rootling through my beauty stash t’other day, I noticed that my collection of stick-style beauty products has grown really rather rapidly over the past few months. From lips to cheeks to eyes, it’s seems like there’s a stick for every aspect of your make up routine these days. So why all the stick-y excitement?  Well the …
