Let's Face It - My Favourite Face Masks

Show me a girl who doesn't love an at-home pamper session with a face mask and an optional (read: necessary) glass of wine, and I'll show you my best "I Don't Beliee-eeve it" impression.

As much as I'd love to book myself in for facials every other week, it's just not practical. Instead the bathroom cupboard has become a breeding ground for face masks, a collection which has grown even after I snapped the shot above not 2 weeks ago.

The Bloggers' Bags: The Zara Office City & Mini

The preface this ramble with a disclaimer - I hate buying bags. I look at other people with beautiful bags, admire them, but I can never own them. Purely because I never shop for them.

You can't properly shop online because you have to see what it's like on - who's with me on trying on bags in the shop? Try shop in store and it's frustrating for no logical reason except it's annoying. So I'm cursed, basically.

Until Zara happened.

Just Look At That Glow Go - Inglot Multicolour Highlighter

This dewy, radiant,  glowy finish thing is totally my scene. When matt finishes were all the rage I was so completely lost. It just didn't seem natural.

Now, however, everything is different and no powder comes within 2feet of my face unless is shimmery, sparkly and distractingly shiny.

Best of Beauty 'Hair Heros'

The fantastic response to week 1 of the Best of Beauty Blog Challenge, which was Skin Care Saviours, has made me even more excited to be cracking on with week 2.

From skin to hair, and our favourite products or tricks for hair. Mine is very new to my regime, but seeing as my hair care regime doesn't usually stray much further than the odd bit of hairspray, this is as good as we're gonna get!

Wax On - Hair Off. Waxperts Win Me Over

Let's be honest, or I will at least - if I was single I probably wouldn't even bother shaving my legs. There, I said it. Being a blondie, my hair is very, very fair so you'd be hard pushed to spot any fuzz unless you got up close and personal (giggidy) so I'm incredibly lazy when it comes to this side of the beauty world.

As well as almost invisible body hair, I'm also plagued with Keratosis Pilaris all over my legs (and it's spreading, good times), so if I was ever to wear a skirt it's always accompanied by thick, black tights.

But this year I've banished the insecurities of my early 20s and I'm embracing womanhood with a plan I'm calling "Operation Love My Legs". Join me, won't you?

Best Of Beauty 'Skin Care Saviours'

Skin Care Saviours feat. Clarisonic, Vichy, La Roche-Posay and Trilogy
I'm delighted to be be taking part in Samantha's Best of Beauty Blogger Challenge. I'm in desperate need of something to keep me on track with blogging-type stuff.

The first topic is one dear to my heart - and one I've had a mental note to write about for ever and ever, so no time like the present.
