GOSH is a great high sreet brand that has that perfect balance of good quality and affordability. It's not super budget, yet it's still not a bank breaker. The GOSH Spring Summer '16 collection has just hot the shelves (10th Feb) and I was lucky to go along to the preview and check out the new products, so have a little look at what you can expect and a few products that stood out from the bunch.

January....well didn't that fly by?! I feel like my feet have barely touched the ground since Christmas, and here we are in February 2016. January was a nice mix of work and fun for me..I had a little staycation break in Pembrokeshire, Wales which was just stunning ; such a lovely, secluded and relaxing place, and then the last couple of weeks I have back back on the work hustle (& stress!) in London. I had a little Christmas beauty splurge for myself and bought some great new bits which I will show you in full soon and here is a handful of my favourite beauty beauty bits from January, including some items from aforementioned splurge!

Love it (lol) or hate it, it's coming upon us like a giant unstoppable steam train. I am personally not one to do anything exciting on Valentine's day with my husband...a card may be exchanged and that's about it. However it doesn't stop me from seeing *ALL* the gorgeous things and haven't a wishlist of lustful things. Whether you are single, loved up or somehwhere miserably in between, everyone deserves a little pamper on Valentine's day and I've selected a few of my favourite bits for the perfect gift of affection.

I picked up the Make Up For Ever Face & Body foundation last year whilst shopping in beauty-addict-heaven, Sephora. I actually had never heard about it or read about it, I was just playing about with *ALL* the makeup and I just liked the sound of it and the feel of it when I tried it on the back of my hand. This is one of those slightly under-rated foundations in my opinion, that isn't all over the blogs and magazines as it has been over-shadowed for a long time by it's older sister, the MUFE HD foundation that we all know and love.

Vichy is one of my favourite high street skincare brands and lately I have been loving the cleansers especially the micellar cleansing oil. The Idealia Smoothing & Illuminating face cream is actually the first cream I have tried from them and wanted to share with you my initial thoughts. This cream is all about brightening the skin & smoothing the texture. They do two formulas ; one for dry skin and one for combination skin. I have the one for dry skin and in hindsight I think the other one would have been better but this one still seems to be ok for me.
This is the latest launch from KIKO, the Best Friends Forever (BFF) Collection. As you can immediately see from the pink and red and girly packaging this is very cute and romantic-looking, which is cleverley coinciding with Valentine's Day. The packaging is very girly and heart-themed which I really like ; It's a teen-girl-at-high-school kinda vibe. I can just about remember those days so that sits fine with me. I have a few select bits from the range so you can get a taster of what it's all about.
