    #HerbalRecovery – Evening with Jurlique & Jam Jar Flowers || Beauty

    August 18, 2017 FrannyMac

    I love being around fresh flowers. I always have a bunch in the house, I don’t know what it is but they just brighten my mood. So when I got the chance to learn about the art of hand tying flowers at the Jurlique store on Oxford Street, safe to say it sounded right up my street. “What does a luxury skincare brand have to do with flower arranging though?” you may ask – well, Jurlique have recently launched their Herbal…

    Yves Saint Laurent – Mon Paris Eau de Parfum || Beauty

    March 26, 2017 FrannyMac

    Monday was the first day of Spring and the clocks went forward today, so it finally feels like Winter and those dark evenings may be over and done with. And, well, to be honest, it couldn’t come quick enough. With Spring finally here, I’ve been updating my wardrobe, digging out the blush toned lipsticks and on the look out for a new fragrance. So with that in mind, I recently picked up Yves Saint Laurent’s Mon Paris Eau de Parfum. Released mid…

    Huda Beauty – Rose Gold Palette (Shop My Stash) || Beauty

    February 10, 2017 FrannyMac

    In my 2017 blogging goals, I decided that due to the size of my makeup collection I should focus on shopping my stash rather than just posting about new pieces. So, on which note, I thought I’d start with one of my more expensive beauty buys – the much coveted Rose Gold palette by Huda Beauty. I picked this up in Harrods a few months ago along with a liquid matte in Gossip Gurl. To be honest, it was a complete impulse…

  • MAC Whirl Lipstick & Lip Liner || Beauty

    May 27, 2016 FrannyMac

    Over the last year, the amount of nude lipsticks in my collection has grown rapidly. I’ve gone from only owning Velvet Teddy because it was a cult product (anyone else do this?!) and leaving it barely used for a good three months to having a massive collection of nude lipsticks including a massive haul of Kylie Jenner-esque ones from Colour Pop (but more on that in another post..). So, when I won a £25 Debenhams voucher at work I thought I’d…

  • MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Rich & Restless || Beauty

    January 28, 2016 FrannyMac

    Between my love affair with MAC and my love of liquid to matte lipsticks, it was only a matter of time (I’m less sorry than I should be for that awful pun) until I bought myself one of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours released earlier this month. When the first pictures of the range leaked on Instagram, I wasn’t sure if they’d replace my favourite liquid to matte formula by Kat Von D, but I was excited to see how MAC’s…

  • Charlotte Tilbury Walk Of Shame Lipstick || Beauty

    January 19, 2016 FrannyMac

    Last month, despite trying to save money to pay for Christmas presents, I was rather naughty. I treated myself to my first piece of Charlotte Tilbury makeup. Between seeing a some of my favourite bloggers rave about their products and a store opening in one of my favourite weekend haunts, Covent Garden, it was only a matter of time before I caved in to the hype. Although I lied to myself and said “I’m only going in to browse”. Let’s be…

  • MAC x Ellie Goulding “Without Your Love” Lipstick || Beauty

    January 3, 2016 FrannyMac

    After seeing Ellie Goulding at Hyde Park’s British Summer Time festival last year, I’ve become a massive fan. Her vocals live were absolutely amazing and I adore her sense of style, so when I heard she was launching a collection with MAC with including various lip products, palettes and a blush, I knew I’d have to pick up at least one item from it. However, with it being December and buying gifts for Christmas I didn’t quite know if I’d…

  • Cohorted Beauty Box with Thou Shalt Not Covet || Beauty

    December 14, 2015 FrannyMac

    I’d like to think of myself as a reformed beauty box addict. As much as it pained me to do, I’ve cancelled my GlossyBox and Birchbox subscriptions and try and ignore the temptation of limited edition boxes. However, when an email from Cohorted about the launch of two new beauty boxes dropped into my inbox, I couldn’t help but be a little curious. The White Edition subscription is all about fragrances and discovering new scents, while I love the idea, it’s not…

  • Too Faced Love Flush Blush Review || Beauty

    October 23, 2015 FrannyMac

    Yes, it’s been almost a month and I’m only just getting to reviewing another part of my Sephora haul (part one was about my Kat Von D lipstick, you can read it *here*). With this blush however, it’s less that I haven’t had time to write about it and more it’s so pretty I didn’t want to use it. I mean just look at the gorgeous design on the powder with all the adorable bunnies, putting a brush through it…
