Tori's Top Tips - Applying glitter nail polish

Picture the scene. You're in Boots, browsing the aisles when out of the corner of your eye, a twinkle sparkles from the shelves. It's a glitter nail polish...and you NEED it.

You get it home, open it up and paint a coat to realise that you've been fooled again. One coat of this polish leaves you three specks of glitter and a whole load of gloop. It's resigned to the back of the makeup drawer where dodgy products go to die.

Until now. Get out that glitter polish! I can teach you how to apply it so it sparkles like the goddess that you are!

Superdrug Vitamin E Range

I've long been a massive fan of the Superdrug Vitamin E range. I use a lot of their products and my skin drinks them up.

I was given a lot of them for Christmas this year and thought I would share with you my collection and thoughts on them.

If you'd like to see what else I got for Christmas, just follow the link.

Glam Smokey Drugstore Priced Eye ft Makeup Revolution and Makeup Geek

I sat down one Saturday morning at my dressing table. My usual Saturday routine if I'm not leaving the house is a bit of moisturiser and lip balm and that's it.

Ninety minutes later, I stood up with a full face of glam, smokey eyed makeup and, in my opinion, the best damn blending I've EVER done. I almost felt like I should leave the house purely so it could be showcased, haha!

Never mind, I had fun doing it...and so I'm sharing it with you now.

Skin79 Panda Sheet Mask and Pilaten Lip Mask Review

I've been seeing sheet and lip masks spring up massively recently as part of the surge in Korean beauty and I was so intrigued. I really fancied the idea of laying a sheet mask over my face - it seemed like it would be so relaxing! Especially if it had a cute animal on the front. What can I say...I'm a sucker for cute!

January Clothing Haul

Despite my very best efforts to not spend money in January, the shops lured me in...and not even into their sales! 

To be honest, I needed some day clothes that didn't involve jeans and I certainly found lots in the shops.

Silidyn Trial Midpoint Update

In November, I was chosen to take part in a trial of Silidyn, a silcon liquid supplement to aid healthy nails, hair, joints...SO many benefits. You can read my starter post over at The Trouble With Getting Older...Starting a Trial of Silidyn.

I'm here now, five weeks into a eight week trial and thought I'd write an update post to show you how I'm getting on.

Top Drugstore Nude Lipsticks

I am a massive nude lipstick lover. I prefer them to any other lipstick. As much as I love berry shades and reds...I prefer them on other people. I can't deal with my lips being OUT THERE as centre of attention. Therefore, I have accumulated a wide range of nude lipsticks and thought I would share my most used four from the drugstore.

Shadow Switch Review

I don't know about you, but I'm always running out of brushes to do my eye makeup with. Mainly because I'm terrible at washing them regularly. They get contaminated with darker shadow. Just the other day, I was aiming for a wash of my favourite bronze shadow (Maybelline On and On Bronze Colour Tattoo if you're interested) across the eye for a subtle daytime look when WHAM! Bronze mixed with black and an unintentionally glamorous, nighttime appropriate, smokey eye. For a coffee. At midday. I either get better at washing my brushes or live with it...until now...

Tori's Top Tips - Cleaning Candle Jars

I don't know about you, but I always get given candles as gifts and many of them come in jars. I love candles and the jars are often very pretty. However, once the candle has burned down and melted at the bottom of the jar, what do you do? I also get given lots of tealights and need holders for them. 

This first "Tori's Top Tip" is how to remove the wax so that the jar can be reused for tealights and lone candles.
