Spend or Save – High End Make Up Versus High Street Version

March 26, 2018

Hi, Im Kerry and Im a make up addict…… Its no secret that I have an ever growing stash of make up. I have enjoyed applying make up to my face since I was about 13. My weakness tends to be eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks, but, in all honesty, I can pretty much convince myself of any make up purchase. I do tend to sway…

Lessons Learnt or Reasons For Regret?

March 21, 2018

I wrote a post a while ago, where I had put that I try to never think of anything as a regret. A lovely lady commented that she wished that she could think that way.

The Ordinary Foundations – An over 30’s review

March 8, 2018

I know, I know, Im late to the party in trying The Ordinary Foundations, but in truth, Im not one to really jump on the hype-bandwagon of products. Plus, I had more than enough base/foundation products in my stash to keep me going! Also, when it was launched, it reportedly had a 20,000 person wait list! I dint fancy being number 20,001!
