What I bought from SPACE.NK

What I bought from SPACE.NK

A couple of months ago whilst out shopping in my local city of York I came across a new SPACE.NK shop that had opened. Up until recently SPACE.NK could only be found in major cities so to find one so close to home was very exciting. I love their mix of new up-and-coming brands, well known cult ranges and little luxuries. I couldn’t leave without treating myself, so I decided on this NARS Blush in Reckless. Earlier this year I wrote a post asking if blusher is going out of fashion? The current obsession with contouring and strobing products has overtaken the need for a good old flushed cheek, but while I do love highlighters I still enjoy playing around with different shades of blush. NARS packaging is so stylish and beautiful. The black blush compact has a rubbery finish and the lid lifts up to reveal a mirror inside, whilst the pressed powder itself is covered with a clear perspex cover with the NARS wording on it.

The Body Shop Christmas Blog Event

The Body Shop Christmas Blog Event

A week last Friday I was lucky enough to attend The Body Shop Christmas Blogger Event at my local store in Coppergate, York.

Dream of Silver – Handcrafted Silver Jewellery

Dream of Silver – Handcrafted Silver Jewellery

When I’m not writing my Beauty Best Friend blog my other job is designing and making handcrafted silver jewellery, and running my business Dream of Silver. Today I thought I would tell you a little bit about what that entails, and show you some of the pretty silver jewellery that I make…. I’ve been making jewellery ever since I was a little girl, but I started creating jewellery with silver around 6 years ago after I attended an evening class at Leeds College of Art & Design. Two years later I left my corporate job in financial marketing to run Dream of Silver full time. Every day is different for me – some days I’m designing new products, some days I’m making up orders and some days I’m doing paperwork or updating my Dream of Silver website. My ideas for new products often spring into my mind when I’m least expecting it, usually when I’m trying to get to sleep and then I have to spring up and make...
