I’ll want to try a fancy professional conditioner but can’t commit to spending that much on something I’m not sure if I’ll like. I’d like to treat myself to fragranced body lotion to match my perfume, but the price tag puts me off. That’s why I like shopping in TK Maxx to pick up big beauty brands for less. I always have a rummage in the beauty department when I’m in buying travel or workout bits and the range has at least doubled during their ‘big brand beauty fortnight’ that’s on in store at the moment.

Summer Sun Make Up Must Haves

I try to wear less make up (and clothes, admittedly) on holidays plus I’m always conscious of baggage allowance, but I’m a sucker for limited edition summer packaging so this lot made it into my holiday make up bag on my recent trip to Turkey. What are your summer sun make up must haves?

Vintage Tea Party

Last week I popped along to the launch of the Vintage Tea Party in the Beacon Hotel. Bubbles, make up, afternoon tea, cocktails and dinner …so yeah, basically a few variations of food and drink with some girly fun thrown in for good measure – the makings of a bloody good night away.
