H&M Beauty Foil Blush Review

Hello to a new look blog!  I know I didn’t change the layout of the blog too long ago but since I’ve been a bit stagnant in the ol’ blogging department lately, I thought a fresh layout would be like a fresh start and help motivate me to write more so here we go J

When I was in Copenhagen a few weeks ago, I made it a point to go to one of the many H&Ms in the city centre to check out the new H&M Beauty range.  H&M have made beauty products for years but within the last few weeks, they have relaunched their beauty range, with cohesive and chic packaging with great price points.  The products aren’t priced too cheaply that you wonder what the hell is in them to make them so cheap but they’re not overly expensive either. I’d put them in L’Oréal’s price bracket, maybe a touch cheaper but with much better packaging IMO. 

Since I was only carrying hang luggage, I only picked up one polish in Copenhagen with the hopes of picking up more when I got home because the colour range that I saw in the store was gorgeous but it doesn’t look like H&M Beauty will be making its way onto Northern Irish shores any time soon but if anyone spots it in stores soon, let me know!  Anyway, let’s get on with my first impressions of my special Copenhagen purchase, Foil Blush.


Since there is such a wide choice in polish colours, it was definitely hard to choose which to take home with me.  My eye just kept coming back to Foil Blush and so it was going to be mine.  A rose gold foil, emphasis on the rose, I thought it would be the perfect metallic shade for Autumn/Winter and the fact the whole world is head over heels in love with all things rose gold and copper, it was something to check off the trend list.

Disneyland Paris Photo Diary Part 1

So posts have been a bit thin on the ground these past few weeks and that is because I have been travelling A LOT this month and with limited internet plus lack of inspiration plus tiredness, not much blogging has happened and for that I am very sorry.  I really don't want this blog to fall by the wayside so I want to mix up my posts a bit so that I have a bit more freedom to post more than just nails or beauty bits.  It is my blog and I want it to be a true reflection of myself.

I love photography and I got a great reaction to my most recent Instagram upload of a snap from Disneyland so I thought a little round up post would be great to pop up here and I can chat about some of my highlights of the trip.

This is just part one as the other half of my Disneyland Paris photos are still in my camera since the film isn't finished yet so I'll get those posted when I can so let's check out the land of dreams :D

MICRO Nail Elegance* Review

I'm sure you've all seen the ads some place or other but if you're not familiar, MICRO Nail is an electric nail buffer designed to buff, smooth and shine up your nails.  This Elegance model is an update in design and it does look a bit more sleek and classy (although it kinda looks like something else before you all point it out) but it sits comfortably which is the main thing because if it didn't, this could cause a good bit of damage, so come on under the cut and check out what I thought about the MICRO Nail Elegance.
