I have always been a fan of Lee Stafford products, so when I was asked to review the Lighten Up Mirror, I was very excited! Not only is it in one of my favourite colours, but it’s a very useful product that will stand out on my bathroom shelf. I will keep it in here for use in the very early mornings (I’m talking before 5am!). It’s very lightweight so great to transport to your dressing table if needed.

Lee Stafford Lighten Up Mirror

The Lighten Up Mirror arrived very well packaged in polystyrene inside the cardboard box. This is needed due to the breakable nature of the mirror. We don’t want 7 years bad luck do we?

What is the purpose of the Lighten Up Mirror?

So the purpose of the mirror is to complete your dressing area in style with the pink chrome mirror – I love this!

It has a soft warm illumination perfect for your beauty regime – Totally needed to cover up my bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep!

Double sided with a 360 degrees rotating angle to make sure you look glamorous from every angle – aww thanks, just what I need!

1x and 3x magnification for those close up moments when a steady hand is needed.

Viola Collar from The Shirt Company

For the fashion concious lady we have these fabulous collars from The Shirt Company. I think they are fun and great for dressing up a going out or the smart business outfit. This is the Viola.

 

Peony in Black - The Shirt Company

 

 

This collar is not quite as formal as the Viola. It’s known as the Peony. Very pretty in black. The Shirt Company really has lots of pretty shirts and tops available on their online shop.

Why not take a look and treat someone this Christmas?

 

 

Passionfruit and Lemon Curd from Scarlett & Mustard

I love all types of curds. On toast, great for using in cakes oh and my favourite – on scones with Cornish clotted cream. Yum! This passionfruit and lemon curd is amazing from Scarlett & Mustard. Fresh and zingy. A great little gift. Why not add their blackcurrent & Star Anise, Lime & Mint and Toffee Apple curds to a little gift basket?

The Book Of Everyone

 

A couple of weeks back I reviewed The Book of Everyone. These books really do make great personalised gifts. This one is for my husband for Christmas, but I’ve gone and ordered one for my sister as well.

I love the way they take you on a journey back in time. You can learn about the day you were born, What was the number one single, amongst other facts.

A great gift for that person you never know what to buy for them.

A few weeks back I was asked if I would like to review some products from Chambers & CoI had a little browse over their website and discovered that they produce quite a few different products across their range.

I chose to review 3 products from the skin care range. They also have a leather and pet care range.

Chambers & Co the business started in 2015 by an ordinary family who discovered that their toddler had tolerances to a number of food groups and additives when he was small in 2005. This gave them an interest in everyday products like skin care and cleaning. So over the years in between they researched and learned that by using fresh, natural ingredients and by formulating they came up with the products they sell today.

Lots of Drama!

I love the falsies push up drama mascara! It gives great depth and volume to my lashes. Perfect for that going out dramatic look! Easy to glide on to your lashes. I tried the very black colour which is very dark for my light lashes. The bristles on the brush are cup shaped and help to push your lashes upwards. An excellent mascara! 
                                                                 Maybelline - The falsies push up drama mascara
I gave Maybelline’s Push up Drama mascara 5 out of 5 stars.
        I recieved the mascara for free from Maybelline, and this is my own honest opinion.

Now that February is here I wanted to update you on my competition wins and freebies that I received last month. I was planning to post this earlier in the week, but some how time has got away from me. I have worked very hard last month entering 100’s of competitions throughout the month as I know when my baby arrives at the weekend my time in the next few weeks is going to be limited.
I had 11 competition wins and freebies arriving through the post last week. I am grateful for each and every one of those as it is getting very hard to win anything lately. I am guessing because people are struggling with money in this time, lots of new people are taking up comping as their hobby. I really don’t blame them. It is a fantastic way of getting stuff that you could not necessary afford. I love to win things for my family and friends for Christmases and Birthdays.
