The Best Electric Women’s Shave...


  It’s spring time, the sun is out, that can mean only one thing, regular shaving!

Trying to be creative with my images

There’s been a lot of hype over the new Bold Metals Collection from Real Techniques.

Get A Luminous, Nourished Tan This Wi...

Gorgeous Lashes Without Mascara!!

Sorry for the blurriness

Firstly please forgive the very tired, red eyes, it’s not from the treatment, for some reason I hardly slept last night. This morning I was booked in to have LVL Lashes at Touch of Beauty salon in South Wales. I’d heard about LVL lashes, seen some before and after pictures and so I took a look […]
