Benefit Candy Coated Countdown Final

Another year, another advent calendar completed. The last door has been opened *cue sad face* but at least there are goodies left behind rather than a depleted ripped empty chocolate advent. As you know I have already reviewed what was Benefits first 12 offerings, lets see what the last 12 have brought us. 13. Posietint – Poppy pink tinted lip and cheek stain. This is more subtle than Benetint that we had on Day 11. The great thing about these tints is that unlike blushers that fade quickly, these last pretty much most of the day. Easy to apply and blends…

Benefit Candy Coated Countdown

Half way advent calendar klaxon!!! For the last 12 days I have woken each and every day trying to guess what’s behind the Candy Coated Countdown door, and each day trying to not open every other door! In true Benefit style, each little door has a little quip/quote to correspond to what today’s goodie is. So lets see what the last 12 days have have given us…. 1. Heart shaped paperclips – A little disappointing for the first day of the calendar, but then I am a sucker for anything pink and heart shaped so naturally I loved them, and they…

Vincent & Flavia – Dance ‘Til Dawn

This week we were invited up to watch Flavia and Vincent’s new hit show Dance ‘Til Dawn, which is currently at the Aldwych Theatre in Covent Garden.

Dance ‘Til Dawn transports you to the glitz of 1940s Los Angeles, and in the midst of filming the leading man is murdered. A…

Montezuma’s Tequila Cubes Kingdom Chocolate Bars

Over the weekend we popped to our local town and Montezuma’s have sneakily opened without us even knowing! Not that we needed any persuasion to peruse the shop, but the lovely sales assistants were offering some delectable goodies to try – their Christmas chocolate truffle filled snowman and milk chocolate butterscotch bar (YUM). For a small shop they had a good range and it was hard to not buy most of it! The first thing that caught our eye was the vibrant packaging of the Kingdom chocolate bars. Kingdom are Montezuma’s ‘little brother’ offering a range of vibrant, innovative and unique…

Family Affair at Cretingham Country Lodges.

Sun, sea, cocktails and not lifting a finger is our idea of a holiday, but what was the one thing that was missing… my little pug. Don’t be so ridiculous I hear you cry but believe me its true, only pet owners will truly understand that you get separation anxiety from your pooch; so this year we decided to do something different and have a last minute holiday the whole family could enjoy. The criteria – cabin/lodge, pet friendly and hot tub. After searching high and low, looking at more websites than I care to remember, we booked a last…
