Essence LongLasting Lipstick in Love Me

I had seen various Essence products floating around the blogging world but until recently I don't think they had been readily available in the UK until they have recently started being stocked in Wilkos stores. I thought I would pick up a couple of products to see what they are like. Essence is a budget friendly brand and had very affordable products which look quite good quality.


I bought one of their lipsticks in the shade Love Me it is a beautiful dusky rosy pink shade. For £2.50 the quality is brilliant it is very highly pigmented, I know sometimes when you buy a cheaper lipstick the colour pay off isn't always great



It has a creamy and moisturising finish I thought it might be quite drying on your lips with it being a cheaper lipstick but it is really quite creamy and it feels like a much more expensive lipstick. I just love the colour it is perfect for me a beautiful everyday pink and as you know if you have been reading my blog for a while I don't like bright lip colours. I will definitely be buying more lipsticks from the range the next time I am in Wilkos.

#ClarksMoments Maxi Hehe Fst Boots*

As I have mentioned before we love Clarks shoes and as you may have seen Thomas was lucky enough to get a new pair of boots ready for the Autumn/ Winter to keep his tootsies nice and toasty. I picked these lovely boots as I loved the colour they look perfect for this time of year. I love the pop of mustard yellow with the brown it makes the boots more fun for toddlers.

The boots are also surprisingly easy to get on even on a toddlers uncooperative feet as they have little zips down the side meaning you can open them up quite wide and your toddler can easily push their foot in and there is a little toggle at the back you can pull them on with ease. The leather is also soft and flexible making them super comfortable for your toddler no need to worry about them rubbing and they can still move easily with them on as you don't want their movements to be restricted.


Thomas loves his new boots.

My Little Parisienne Box Review






It's seems there is a new monthly subscription box which has been doing the rounds among blogs over the past weeks and it looked so cute that I just couldn't not try it. So of course straight away I signed up eager to try it out for myself.

I was still in time to receive the September box so after a week or so wait I received my box and eagerly unwrapped it. It feels a little bit nicer than your average beauty box, a little more chic.
The concept is simple each month My little box will send you must have beauty items including one item from their in house beauty products, fashion and lifestyle accessories, a copy of my little world magazine and illustrated goodies from Kanako which I think it such a cute little touch which helps to make the box so cute.



Like your normal subscription box it was packaged up with a little bow and arranged carefully in the box. I have already found a frame for the Paris illustration which will be put up in my new bedroom when I finally move.


This month I received a sweet little laptop/notebook sleeve which unfortunately my big clunky laptop doesn't fit in but hopefully sometime soon I may have a Macbook which I have heard fits perfectly inside. Some cutesie little stickers and a little notebook which I am sure will come in useful.





The beauty products in this months box were a Laura Mercier Foundation Primer which I have received before in a beauty box but this will come in useful and everybody loves a Laura Mercier product.
Next was Stylo Lumiere which is a high lighting product from their in house beauty range which I was curious to see if it would be any good.
Lastly was Nuxe dry oil now which I am currently trialing out as I don't have much experience with dry oils.

I'm looking forward to seeing Octobers box has to offer hopefully it will be just as good if not better.

Frozen DVD Review*



If you haven't heard about the Disney film Frozen this year then you must have been living under a rock. Frozen has been a massive hit among little girls and probably their mums alike and I can't believe it has taken me this long to get round to actually watching the film. We were recently sent a copy of the Frozen DVD from www.suppose.com so we had a family film night and snuggled down with a big snuggly blanket and a bag of Terrys chocolate orange segments.

We really enjoyed Frozen I can see why it was such a big hit, Thomas actually sat still and watched the whole of the film and I really enjoyed it too even the cheesy songs that were all the way through the film. It is just a lovely family film that I should imagine we will watch again and again.

What I love about Suppose is that it tracks the prices of items you are watching and notifies you when it finds the cheapest prices so that you don't have to waste your time searching the web. For example the Frozen DVD can be found for just £10 not the £15 it is advertised elsewhere.


I think that is a great bargain. I will definitely be using Suppose before buying any Christmas presents this year so I can hopefully save myself a bit of money on my Christmas shopping.

We were sent this dvd for the purpose of this blog post
