Clinique Beauty Evening

Clinique UK Beauty Evening

Last week I was invited along to a beauty evening with Clinique, which was much needed if I’m honest!  I’d been having an “interesting” week, drowning in work and having construction work going on…let’s just say it was a very welcome break.  It was a small gathering, made smaller by the fact that a few […]

All about the brows

Eyebrow Pencil Comparison

Before we start, I will point out now, you will not find Instagram perfect brows here. They’re not really my style.  I also have a love hate relationship with my brows, sometimes they’re perfect, other times, not a mission.  I generally use pencils more than anything else when it comes to my brows, they’re just […]
