TEETH WHITENING WITH WHITE WASH LABS: NANO

Whitewash Laboratories Nano: Intensive Teeth Whitening Strips Hello, my name is Alice and I am a tea addict. Because of this, my teeth aren’t as white as I’d like them to be #firstworldproblems. So when Whitewash Laboratories got in touch asking if I’d be interested in trying some of their products, I couldn’t resist. In the past, I have dabbled a little in whitening products but have always been a little wary of damaging my teeth. You often hear stories about teeth whitening strips making teeth more sensitive and generally not being that good for them. So why did I…

LUSH NEWCASTLE: HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS SHOWCASE

Now I’ve been a huge lover of Lush for as long as I remember. One of the first blogger events I went to was a Lush event back in 2013. So when Lush Newcastle announced they were hosting a blogger event I jumped at the chance to go. This event was to promote the launch of the new Halloween and Christmas range – and we all got the first glimpse before the shop was open to the public. On arrival we were all greeted with name badges, fruit juice and a range of Vegan pizzas that had been generously supplied…

Cruelty Free Skincare: My favourite Lush Products

I’ve spoken previously in posts about switching products over to cruelty free beauty and makeup products. But I must admit my vanity took over a little and I found myself still buying products that had been tested on animals. Then back in July, something changed.  After a weekend spent watching Netflix documentaries, I decided I couldn’t carry on the way I was and I finally made the decision to become vegetarian with the intent to be fully plant-based eventually. I’ve begun making little changes in my lifestyle and I no longer eat meat or fish, I drink plant-based milk 90%…

Finally Trying Colourpop.

If you’re like me you would have been over the moon when Colourpop was finally available for delivery to the UK. So a little while ago myself, Chloe, Helen and Amy all took advantage of the deal for free UK shipping and shared a delivery, this helped split the cost of customs which was about £20. After many an hour scouring the inter-web looking at swatches I finally decided on three shades of their liquid lipsticks to try, Creeper, Tulle and Avenue. Firstly the one thing I noticed was the colours in the tubes looked different to what I was expecting.…

Urban Decay Masterclass

At the beginning of the month, I was invited down to Debenhams to an Urban Decay masterclass event hosted by Ellefluence. I was really excited about this as I’ve never had a chance to really try any Urban Decay products, but they’ve always been something I’ve lusted towards. So this gave me the perfect opportunity to learn more about their products – and get some ideas on what to pop onto my Christmas list. The main purpose of the evening was for the Urban Decay Newcastle staff to show us how they would take a daytime look into the evening,…

Five Reasons Why I Love The Body Shop Vitamin-E Range.

Five Reasons Why I Love The Body Shop Vitamin-E Range.

ONE It smells amazing, simple as that. There is just something special about the smell of this range that sends me head over heels for it. The smell instantly relaxes me as soon as I smear my face with the cream cleanser. The cleanser just smells like clean. Its soft, a little floral and reminds me a little of baby powder. The perfect way to revitalize me in the morning and also relax me in the evening. TWO It leaves my skin feeling incredible! There are few cleansers that as soon as I rub them on my face my skin…

New In: Pretty In Pink

As I mentioned in my sulphate-free shampoo post last week I’m trying to make the effort to buy more cruelty-free beauty products when I can. So I thought today I’d share with you a few products I’ve picked up recently. This all started with an NYX counter finally arriving in Newcastle and the whole thing just escalated. The one NYX product I’d been dying to try was the matte lip creams, as I’d heard so many amazing things about them. After much deliberation, I opted for the shade ‘Cannes‘ which is the perfect rose nude type colour. It’s that typical ‘Kylie…

Body Shop Eldon Square: Drops Of Light.

Last week I was lucky enough to be selected alongside Amy, Chloe and Laura to attend an event at the newly refurbished The Body Shop in Eldon Square for an evening of beauty, pampering and of course a little bit of shopping too. I really enjoyed that there was only four of us at the event, as it allowed for a really personal one to one experience where you really felt looked after. We each started at a different area of the shop, I started at make up where I was introduced to a few of the new The Body Shop make-up products. I’ve never…

Paul Mitchell | Gift Of Style

Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Daily Boost*  Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum* Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo* Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Conditioner* A few weeks ago I was invited along to a Paul Mitchell “The Gift of Style’ event hosted at the Mosley Street Gary Hedley Salon. We were greeted with Prosecco and nibbles (served by topless and oiled up models which I found a little off putting) and were sat in the salon chairs to await a stylist to do our hair if we wanted. I didn’t actually get my hair done, nor did I take any photographs whilst I…
