GIVEAWAY – Look Fantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

GIVEAWAY – Look Fantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

THE GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED. Wow, look at the contents of this Look Fantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box*! Look Fantastic is one of the leading online British beauty retailers and they produce a monthly beauty box full of goodies. I was lucky enough to receive one of their September 1st Birthday boxes full of amazing skincare and haircare products worth £55. Read on to discover what was inside, and find out how you could WIN your very own 1st Birthday Beauty Box as I have one to give away… The Beauty Box is a thing of beauty, it’s a white cardboard box with bright sparkly hundreds and thousands printed onto it and lined with blue tissue paper. It contains 8 (yes, 8!) products, which is at least 2 or 3 more than most beauty boxes that are available at the moment. This month they were a selection of skincare and haircare products from leading brands. I would have maybe liked to see a make-up item or two to mix...

Beauty Best Friend is 2 today!!!

Beauty Best Friend is 2 today!!!

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…. Yes, my Beauty Best Friend blog is 2 years old today! On 14th April 2013 I posted my first review of Chanel Orange Fizz Nail Colour, here it is if you want to have a quick look. I don’t think my writing style has changed much, what do you think? I really enjoy blogging, I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with it for 2 years if I didn’t. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, and I’ve also made contact with lots of other bloggers during the time I’ve been writing Beauty Best Friend. So what has Beauty Best Friend achieved over the past 2 years? Well, in just 2 years I have gained over 1,900 followers on Bloglovin and over 1,150 followers on Twitter. I know followers aren’t everything, but it’s great to see these numbers steadily rising and to know that someone out there is reading and enjoying what I write! I have also been lucky enough...

DIY Pictures

DIY Pictures

Another quick DIY craft post today to show you a cheap and easy way to make pictures for your walls using old birthday cards and postcards. I always keep really nice cards and other pictures in a plastic wallet, then every now and then I’ll go through it and pick one or two out to make into pictures. I’ve chosen a Winnie-The-Pooh card as I love him and the colours will go nicely in the spare room that we’ve just decorated. I’ve also chosen a girly card about shoes and handbags, this one is going to go next to my dressing table in the bedroom. I’ve used glass clip frames that measure 7×5 inches, but they’re available in loads of sizes going right up to poster size. The great thing about these clip frames is that you can easily take them apart and change the picture if you get bored of it. You can use them for photos too, how about using a big one and creating a collage?...

Happy Birthday to Beauty Best Friend!

Happy Birthday to Beauty Best Friend!

  Today is Beauty Best Friend’s 1st birthday! My very first review post was published on 14th April 2013, and here I am 365 days later celebrating this special day. Since I started blogging it has made me realise how much I missed creative writing since leaving my corporate marketing job a few years ago. It has also reawakened my passion for make-up and skincare, and in the past 12 months I have discovered lots of new products that I love. Blogging has also put me in touch with lots of other like minded bloggers, and social media makes it so easy to chat and share product recommendations and beauty tips. So, what are Beauty Best Friend’s main achievements from the past year? – In the past 12 months I have built up so many lovely readers – including over 650 Bloglovin followers and over 550 Twitter followers – In June 2013 I had a ‘Product Of The Month’ review published in Pure Beauty magazine – my chosen product...

Glossybox – May 2013

Glossybox – May 2013

My May Glossybox has arrived! I must be one of the last people on their monthly list as we are already well into June, but better late then never. I am really pleased with this one, there are 6 items and a good mix of make-up and skincare products. For those of you who don’t know about Glossybox it is a monthly subscription-based make-up and skincare box. Each box costs £10 plus P&P and contains around 6 goodies (some full-size products and some sample sizes), the retail prices of which add up to way more than the £10 you pay for it. It is a way for consumers to try out new products and for brands to get their products known, and there is usually a good mix of well-known brands and some less-well-known or new brands in each box. May 2013 marks Glossybox’s 2nd birthday and this is their anniversary box. The packaging is really lovely and it feels quite special opening the pink box, untying the ribbon and peeling back...
