Sea of Hull and Ron Mueck – a review

Coming out of the baby change, tucked away in the back of Ferens Art Gallery last week, I noticed the nearest gallery door was blacked out and featured a warning of nudity. Having come to see Spencer Tunick’s Sea of Hull exhibition, I assumed I was in the right place and pushed it open. What … Continue reading Sea of Hull and Ron Mueck – a review

Infant eczema – what works and what doesn’t

There's a Facebook parenting group I'm a member of which sees the same questions posted again and again. You see one group of mums get to a point where they feel like they're getting the hang of this bizarre new lifestyle they've created, then another influx of newborns appear, and the cycle begins again. One … Continue reading Infant eczema – what works and what doesn’t

Book review: Four Letter Word

After joining my new local library the other day, I was perusing their shelves when a book caught my eye. I’ve been craving a quick read that really engrosses me for a while, to break up some non-fiction I’ve been attempting. Always having been a fan of books of letters, Four Letter Word grabbed my … Continue reading Book review: Four Letter Word

Book review: Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

Oryx and Crake is the latest title selected by my book club, and after having completely forgotten about it until most of the way through this month, I am glad it was a quick read. I saw my copy of Oryx and Crake on display in an Oxfam bookshop, and initially put off by the … Continue reading Book review: Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

Book review: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

New widget alert! I’ve added an image to the side of my blog so I can display a lovely picture of the book I am currently reading, aptly named ‘currently reading’. This has excited me for two reasons. One: well, why wouldn’t it? I love discovering cool new little things I can do with my … Continue reading Book review: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Beauty review: a cocoa butter to die for (if you try to eat it)

So yesterday I blogged about the Skylash mascara I had finished off. Another product I finished this week is Superdrug’s Natural Cocoa Butter Body Lotion. Put simply, I love the stuff. It smells amazing, it’s cheap and it works wonders. I guess I could stop the review there! But where I lack in natural chattiness … Continue reading Beauty review: a cocoa butter to die for (if you try to eat it)

Beauty review: Collection Skylash mascara

I’ve finished a couple of products this week, including a mascara I wanted to review when I first bought it. I’ve had about a month’s use out of it, and I think now is probably a better time to blog about what it was like to use than when it was new to me. I was … Continue reading Beauty review: Collection Skylash mascara

Beauty review: Collin Resultime mini facial kit

A little while ago I got sent some lovely samples from Collin Ltd to try out their new Resultime range. I hadn’t given much thought to anti-aging products just yet in life (and will protest that I am too young for some years to come), but there’s no harm in good preparation, and I love … Continue reading Beauty review: Collin Resultime mini facial kit

Book review: ‘Room’ by Emma Donoghue

Thinking about which book to read next, I thought I’d get one out of the way that I’d bought a few weeks ago in a bargain bookshop, purely because it was £2 and I needed something that price to take me over the shop’s minimum £5 spend to pay on card. It was a book … Continue reading Book review: ‘Room’ by Emma Donoghue

The best gift for your skin this Christmas

We all know winter can be harsh on our skin. The chapped lips that came in October were the first clue that I should have stayed indoors from then on and remained so until March. My face may have been nicer to me had that been the case. Unfortunately, life got in the way of … Continue reading The best gift for your skin this Christmas
