Benefit Cosmetics Make-Up Masterclass with Lisa Potter Dixon

It’s a fact! I am Benefit make-up and skincare obsessed! You can imagine that I was beyond excited to hear that as part of the Woman and Home Beauty event, there was going to be a make-up Masterclass with none other than Head Make-Up & Trend Artist, Lisa Potter Dixon; and better still it was being held nearby.  House of Fraser had opened up their Beauty Hall specifically for Woman and Home Magazine, with most of the top beauty brands giving away treatments and make-overs. Greeted by friendly faces and the Benebabes, we kickstarted the evening with a cocktail, well all great evenings start with cocktail,…

Joe Browns SS15 Top Sale Picks

Hands up if you love a sale!  As part of the Joe Browns Blogger Competition I got to have a sneak peak at their SS15 sale collection, and there are some fabulous pieces, at some even more fabulous prices. Picking my favourites was tricky, given I could have happily picked about 20, but I have whittled it down to these fabulous 5.  First up the Lacey Daisy Vest Top. The neckline is perfect, I love the detail of the daisy’s, and the pop of colour gives it that summer vibe. The white skinny fit jeans are aptly titled All New Must Have…

Based in Midhurst, these Chocolatiers individually handcraft Chocolates, Truffles and Tablettes, using only the finest ingredients.  Being quite the chocolate lover I was extremely happy that Noble and Stace kindly sent me some samples to try, including their new and exclusive Mineral Water Truffles that are yet to be released. Let’s get tasting. Coffee & Cocoa Nib Tablette* – Super smooth chocolate, this tablette is filled with coffee & cocoa nibs. Breaking the bar open, it smells…

Sainsbury’s Salted Peanut and Caramel Ice Cream

The weather is hotting up which means hello ice cream. Previously I reviewed Ben & Jerry’s Utter Peanut Butter Cookie Core which I loved, but am keen to try a Supermarket own one; insert Sainsbury’s Salted Peanut and Caramel Ice Cream.  Jazzy flavour combinations are now a firm part of Supermarket own brand ranges, but can they match or beat the big guns like Ben & Jerry’s or Haagen-Daz? Sainsbury’s Salted Peanut and Caramel ice cream sits alongside their Chocolate Brownie, Cookie Dough and Toffee Honeycomb tubs, but what attracted me to try this? Peanut Butter of course! It’s great to see that…
