Pommes Frites Candle Co.

A few months ago, I found one of these candles in a little shop in Brooklyn, New York and it's quickly become one of my all time favourites. I'd never heard of the Pommes Frites Candle Co at the time (I was just drawn in by the delicious scent!) but it turns out these little brown jars are really something quite special.
The scent I went for at the time was Amber & Moss, and after falling totally in love with it when I got home, I tracked down a place to buy them in the UK...

Beauty Chat with ASOS & Patricia Bright!

A few weeks ago I caught up with some of the lovely girls from ASOS and one of my favourite vlogging ladies Patricia Bright for a chat about all things beauty.
It was such a fun girly day talking about everything from catwalk trends to perfect brows. If you want to see what we got up to, you can check out the videos below!

The Easy Liquid Liner

If you struggle with liquid eyeliner, or if it just takes you ages to get the perfect flick and you don't have time to spend 10 minutes doing it in the morning, I've finally discovered the solution! 
NYX have a nifty little eyeliner called 'The Curve', which has quickly become a makeup bag staple of mine. It's rounded, ergonomic design allows you to draw on the perfect flick in just a few seconds...

Rebirth of The Beauty Box

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'm a little bored of the 'beauty box'. They've been doing the rounds for the past few years, from Glossybox to Birchbox, Feelunique & Carmine, there have been quite a few. Some have lasted, some have fallen by the wayside. I have to say I'm still a big fan of Birchbox, but it's fair to say that the 'craze' does seem to be fading. Enter a breath of beauty-box fresh air...
'My Little Box' is a Parisian concoction. A mixture of beauty, fashion, lifestyle, even stationary. I've gotten the past couple of boxes and have been seriously impressed by them...

Bio Sculpture Gel Polish

I discovered an absolute nail gem this week. You might have heard of Bio Sculpture gel? Apparently it was the 'original' gel manicure (before shellac.) Well, the company also makes nail polish, and it's blooming AMAZING. It's designed to be a stop-gap or act as a top-up for their full-on gel shades (there is a corresponding shade for each gel they make) but it's really amazing used as nail polish alone.
The first coat looks a little watery, but layer up 2-3 coats, slap on a top coat (I've been using the Illamasqua one, which is also amazing!) and you're left with the glossiest manicure I've ever done at home...
