Review | Kleenex shine absorbing sheets & giveaway

My skin hates me. There I've said it. It can't make up its mind whether it wants to be dry or oily. I've got a nose so oily that I could start making money as a provider of fossil fuels and cheeks so dry they make the Atacama Desert look positively humid! My chin and forehead like to flip between the two camps so as you can imagine it's pretty difficult to find face products to treat my combination skin.

Prevention is an ongoing journey but until then I've found a quick and easy way to deal with the oil well that is my nose!

Music | Gigs 2014 January - June

I love live music; there's just something about seeing a live band that brings their music to life. Being surrounded by people who all share a similar passion really excites me and I'll happily watch bands in all kinds of venues from stadiums to the back room of a dingy pub. I keep all of my gig and concert tickets (believe me, there's a difference between a concert and a gig but that's a post for another day!) and glancing back it seems that I haven't seen as many bands so far this year as I usually have by the halfway point. Read on to find out a little bit more about the bands and artists I've seen and who knows, you might even discover something new!

Wednesday Whine | That's not my name...

In 2008 The Ting Tings re-released their electro-pop hit "That's Not My Name" and finally I had an anthem - a song that defined my entire 25 years of living on this planet.

Chances are that those of you who are reading this have names that are very easy to pronounce like Lucy or Charlotte or Gemma; names that nobody is ever going to question the pronunciation of. If you're reading this on your PC then you can just glance to the left of this post and see my name right there underneath my photograph and I'll be honest, you're probably wondering what all the fuss is about. That's probably because you've never met me, so you're pronouncing my name incorrectly.

I was introduced to Soigné Botanique Nail Lacquer in May's Birchbox when I received the shade pomegranate. I fell in love with the range and quite quickly my collection grew. Read on to find out why this range is now my ultimate favourite...
