eBay Owl/Fox Handbag

eBay Owl/Fox Handbag

I just couldn’t resist sharing this cute handbag that I purchased from eBay recently! I’m not quite sure if it’s supposed to be an owl or a fox, but both are currently in fashion and I just think it’s so cute! The press stud on it’s little nose unfastens to open up the bag, and whilst there are no separate pockets inside it’s quite a decent size to fit your everyday essentials in. The strap is quite a good length, and it’s adjustable too using buckles so you could wear it across the body or over one shoulder. It looks a bit like leather although I think it’s probably made from plastic given the cheap price! But it’s good value, and it comes in 6 different colours. I went for the orange as I think that’s the most fox-like colour, but I think the brown looks good too. I’ve already had lots of positive comments when I’ve been using my fox/owl bag, it’s the perfect size to use when meeting...

Oh so natural…

Oh so natural…

Just a quick sneak preview to let you know some of the product reviews you can expect to see from Beauty Best Friend over the next week or so. Last week I took receipt of a number of natural skincare and lipcare beauty products, from the brands Jason Natural and Burts Bees. Both of these brands promote pure and natural ingredients, something that I really admire, and in time I would like to swap some of my usual ‘chemically enhanced’ products for more natural ones. The only problem being that, in the past, some of these natural skincare products haven’t really stood up to their chemical counterparts in terms of performance and longevity, but product development in the natural beauty arena has recently moved on in leaps and bounds and these products are now standing up for themselves. Keep an eye out for my reviews, and more information about these two great...

Barry M Nail Paint Haul

Barry M Nail Paint Haul

I’m so excited! I’ve just picked up these three Barry M beauties from Boots and I can’t wait to start using them! I think Barry M is my favourite nail paint brand right now, there’s such a range of colours and effects to choose from and they’re such good value. Full reviews will come soon, but in the meantime here’s a sneak peek at the 3 colours… This one is from the Glitter Nail Paints collection and it’s called, unsurprisingly, Aqua Glitter. It is a clear varnish with a very fine aqua-coloured glitter in it. I’m thinking glitter tips and accent nails for this one! And it will be interesting to see how thick the glitter coverage will be. This is also from the Glitter Nail Paints collection, and is called ‘Pink Sapphire Glitter’. This is a clear varnish with hexagonal pink and silver glitter and ‘feather’ thin strips of silver glitter. I’m thinking accent nails for this one, or just all out Christmas party sparkle over a coat of bright pink...

Welcome!

Welcome!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hello and welcome to my first blog post! Beauty Best Friend blog hasn’t yet been officially launched, but I wanted to let you know a little bit about what you can expect in the weeks to come. At the moment I am still working on getting the blog layout just right and setting up all of my social media channels, but I am hoping to officially launch the Beauty Best Friend blog in mid-April 2013. You can expect lots of beauty product reviews, skincare tips and generally just lots of discussion about makeup and haircare products. Plus probably a few other topics along the way… In the meantime if you have any suggestions or feedback feel free to get in touch. You can find my email address on the Contact page, or you can get in touch on Facebook or...
