Kiko - opening soon in Birmingham!!!!!

Can you tell my excitement from the number of exclamation marks in the post title?! 

Kiko, for those of you who don't know, is a make up company from Milan who sell an amazing array of good quality and affordable make up. I first learned of Kiko when my sister came back from Italy raving about all this make up she had bought from this shop. She then went on to find one in London which made it more accessible to us as well as their website kikocosmetics.com. We have been buying Kiko products ever since!

For a long time now we have longed for Kiko to open a store in Birmingham and so you can imagine when last weekend we were in the Bullring shopping centre, to our surprise we saw this ...





Our eyes literally popped out of our heads and we simultaneously did a little celebration dance. Finally! We can't wait! I will definitely be doing a Kiko related make up post very soon!  

Are any of you as excited as me?

Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Hi Everyone! 

If you didn't already know, October is breast cancer awareness month! Cancer affects everyone in some way. If you are lucky enough not to have had it, then you probably know someone who has. Even though it's nearly the end of the month, it's not too late to show your support by wearing pink, in any way - clothes, shoes..... make-up!

Personally, I love a pink lip (although the bright colours can leave you teeth looking a bit yellow, he he!) and will be rocking mine on a night out with the girls. Here are my top five favourite pink lipsticks. There's something for every occasion, budget and skin tone.




From left to right: Rimmel - Lasting Finish by Kate No. 20 (£5.49), Chanel - Levres Scinttilantes Glossimer No. 124 (£22), Dior - Rouge Dior Nude No. 169 Grege (£26.50), Revlon - Super lustrous gloss No. 180 Pink pop (£6.50), Loreal Paris Colour Riche No. 302 Bois de rose (£6.99)



There is a colour here for everyone and to suit any occasion, whether you are on a night out or just going to work. I have included a range of products for different budgets. I found that they all last quite long. However the Dior, Revlon and Loreal are buildable. So depending on the look you are going for you may want to apply more for an evening look. The best value for money definitely has to be the Rimmel as it gives such a pop of colour that is long lasting for such a reasonable price!




Also, whilst it's easy to get caught up in the fun of make-up and clothes, don't forget the important message of breast cancer awareness month - make sure you check your breasts regularly and if you can, donate!

If you have any questions about any of the products just leave me a comment below. Do you think I own too many pink lipsticks? ... Nah.

My first post!



Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to introduce myself. This blog is all about my interests, mainly my love of make-up, but I am also a mother of two lovely girls so there will be some mum stuff on this blog (mostly me moaning) . *Warning* There may also be blogs about random things. That is all. x
