Quick Pick Tuesday: Balmi Cube Lip Balm Coconut

02 December 2014

A square lip balm that can fasten to your keys thus being both cute and practical is a total winner for me.  I have hundreds (literally) of lip balms and yet it’s always the product I seem to struggle to locate, either at home or on my travels, so knowing that from now on it’ll […]

A Quick Introduction to Studio 10

Okay so apparently Black Friday is a thing over here in the UK now.  I don’t know if my memory is letting me down and it’s always been a thing, but I honestly don’t recall this much excitement in previous years, however maybe this is a sign of our times and reflective of the fact […]

Here’s an interesting concept for anyone who’s prone to polish hoarding, how about a service that sends you out a regular supply of new and on-trend shades (or even just shades you like) that you then have a play with before sending back and awaiting the next sendout?
