Winter and Allergic Skin Solutions

Last year I struggled with allergies for months, without really knowing what the trigger was. My symptoms included swollen eyelids (sometimes almost swollen shut!), itchy skin around my neck and jaw line, and contact dermatitis under my eyes. It drove me crazy for ages until it just randomly went away. But now, it’s back. Find out what has saved my winter skin. Read more…

The Benefits of Fluoride Free Toothpaste

As a child, one of the things I hated was cleaning my teeth. If fact, even now my family love to tease me about my oral hygiene and remind me how slack I was when I was younger.

Beston Marketplace Food Hampers and Oziris App

Natura Siberica Bath Salts – Take Me To Siberia

A few months ago I was sent a generous gift from Natura Siberica: the Revitalising Siberian Bath Salts. As soon as I took off the lid I knew the fragrance wouldn’t agree with the headaches I was getting. Now, with my headaches under control I’m finally able to give these a try and I am thankful I waited and didn’t ruin the experience by using them when I wasn’t feeling well. Read more…

The Look – Rimmel London Look Competition

I’m such a sucker for makeup contests! When I saw the London Look AU competition, hosted by Rimmel, at first I was skeptical, but when I saw that it was judged by a panel instead of public vote, I thought it was worth entering. The requirement of creating my own London Look inspired me, so I bit the bullet and dived right in. Here is my entry, and what happened next!  Read more…
