A Half-Term Montage and the Beauty Spotlight Roundup

It's been the half-term holiday this week and so my days have been filled with entertaining children after a lovely night away visiting friends. Here's a little glimpse at my week in pictures. As you will see, trains, Lego and Star Wars featured heavily!


Our makeup mavens have more exciting beauty news this week; giveaways, reviews and a new website with a weekly podcast to discuss makeup and trends!

  1. I'm notoriously useless when it comes to competitions, but these look great!

  2. We love Lego Star Wars. S has the Millenium Falcon, one of his proudest possessions.

  3. Hi Ali! You should definitely go for it with the competitions. I'd never won anything prior to blog comps!

    Hey Grace! I went on a fact finding mission in Hamleys before I met you on the Saturday. I love the Lego Star Wars characters and I took a couple of snaps of a Millenium Falcon in the display cabinet. It would be wrong to add it to my Christmas list, right?!
