The beauty blender has proven to be an ever popular makeup tool that has revolutionised our makeup routine. We have gone from using makeup pads and buffer brushes to the ever trusty makeup sponge. Most of you reading this, would have, or currently own the beauty blender – a tool which is a holy grail product if you want flawless, blended makeup. However, at around £16, for a sponge that needs replacing every 2-3 months, it does get expensive.

Compare the £16 sponge to a makeup tool from a brand that is known for their dupes, you only need to search into google “dupe for the urban decay naked palette” and I’m fairly sure this brand will be within the top 10 of the search. I’m talking about none other than Makeup Revolution. View Post

Last Saturday night my husband and I were invited to Jamie’s Pizzeria* in Victoria as part of our weekly date night. Date nights are something we have both valued as important on a weekly basis, to really just take some time off from our daily stresses of our jobs, and to make time for ourselves. We both love Italian food – so much so that we’ve actually booked a long weekend trip away to Naples, for our wedding anniversary in a few weeks time – so heading to Jamie’s Pizzeria last weekend was an easy decision to make.

Although it was typical British weather over the weekend, we didn’t let the weather ruin our evening and looked forward to some great food – and amazing cocktails. View Post

Last Saturday I treated my hubby to a day to in London for his birthday. Although we have lived in London all our lives, there are so many places we haven’t been. I thought it was a perfect excuse to head out in Central London for some afternoon tea – though it can be questioned whether this was more for me than him.

After spending a few days researching the best places for afternoon tea within Central London, we ultimately decided upon afternoon tea at Grosnevor House. The reviews for afternoon tea here were shining, so we relied on these to make our first afternoon tea experience one to remember.

There were so many places we had shortlisted, including Harrods, The Dorchester and Sanderson. Unfortunately the first two were fully booked, and The Sanderson didn’t actually have great reviews, which put us off. View Post
