I think i’ve been pretty well behaved when it comes to spending recently. I have really reigned myself in and purposely shied away from the new product releases. That was until this beauty landed. When I seen it on social media ahead of the launch, I knew I wanted it. Then when I swatched a pre release version in store at Debenhams, I knew I needed it. With the new and improved, frugal Lynsey, I decided to take a step back and if I was still thinking about it a few days later, pick it up. Needless to say, it only took two more days before it was mine…
Like any sane person, I love a good trip to the spa to pamper myself and unwind. Unfortunately my bank balance does not enjoy these trips. I have had to cut back on such luxuries of late and start thinking of more cost effective ways of doing these kind of things so when Temple Spa made contact with me to try out one of their best selling face masks from their popular Trufflesque range – the Ultra Hydration and Radiance Masque*, I didn’t need to be asked twice!
I’ll admit it, I, like most of you, am usually open to the power of suggestion when it comes to new beauty products. However, there are a few brands out there that really suck me into their new launches and one of them is Kylie Cosmetics.

There is many a thing to do in Madrid as you might expect. However, in my experience, three days is a good amount of time to get the highlights done without feeling too rushed.
Madrid is the perfect destination for those who love art and architecture combined with a bit of sun and some superb restaurants and bustling bars. (more…)
The family and I recently took a trip to Aether & Echo to try out their recent Groupon offer (just under £60 for a starter, steak meal with sides and 2 bottles of wine for 4 people FYI).
Summer is upon us and for me that means that I naturally start to think about paying a bit more attention to my body care routine. Y’know, for those 10 sunny days we get in Northern Ireland where our skin’s on show…
