Primark have the much sought after metallic gradient make-up brushes, with fish tail handles, purple tinted hairs and the ultimate shape and texture to achieve the glow of the unicorns! At £10 for a set of 5, they aren’t as pricey as similar sets. I have a feeling these beauties will sell like hot cakes!

Considering Girls With Attitude’s 9 piece Fantasy Collection, which boasts two tone gradient handles and hairs, will set you back £49.99, Primark’s offerings are set to add some serious wanderlust to dressing tables and make-up bags without straining your post-holiday purse strings.


Girls With Attitude Fantasy Collection, 9 brush set of unicorn inspired professional brushes, £49.99

GWA Mermaid Mythical 6 brush collection are not dissimilar in colour scheme to Primark’s and are truly mer-mazing, slightly cheaper at nearly £35… 


Mermaid Mythical 6 brush collection, £34.99, GWA


Girls With Attitude have a variety of tools that will cater to your every face need, and they’re oh so pleasing on the eye, but at nearly £50 for a set of 9, and £35 for a set of 6, if you want a set of mer-mazing brushes but you’re watching the pennies after that beach break, look no further than Primark!  

I also noticed Amazon have an amazing selection of mermaid’s tail brushes, some of which are pastel metallic, pink with gold and even rainbow, for a reasonable price.  It’s well worth a rummage on there for a wider variety at a good price range, there are some generous sellers that have thrown in free shipping too.

Indulge in all the deliciousness of French patisseries this SS17, without all the calories… oui oui!

You won’t be able to resist six sweet Essie shades that will keep your mouth watering all summer long. 


Inspired by all the glittering confections of the finest Parisian cafes, the S’il Vous Play collection will take you on a whimsical journey through the chic streets of the city of style, decadence and love with soft pastels and a shimmering metallic that is absolutely delectable.



Anything with a Parisian theme or style has always drawn me in, and I know I’m not the only one attracted to the kitsch wanderlust of the city of lights.  Seeing this Essie collection is making me crave macarons, maintenant…



This soft iridescent sugar white will have you licking your lips all the way to the confiserie!


An irresistible lilac cream inspired by the tastiest macarons dans la Rue!


An unforgettable lavender pink foil that will remind you of the most frosty cake icing and the sweet namesake of this collection.  I’ll take the petit gateau avec Glacage Rose s’il vous plait!

What I’m loving Wednesday…

I discovered Too Faced Melted Metal liquid lipsticks the other day and couldn’t be happier with the formula and shade variety.


The 90’s foiled statement pout has made a comeback in the form of lustrous liquified metal.


Melted Metal is a multi faceted lip colour like you’ve never seen before.  It’s velvet smooth applicator makes light work of gliding on creamy metallic shine  that coats lips in fresh bursts of glazed colour without the sticky, heavy feel of similar liquid lipsticks.  


Debutante (far left) has to be my favourite shade.  A neutral peach that isn’t as coral-y on as it looks in the tube.

June is here, which officially means it’s the start of the summer. Exciting. Festival fever will soon be upon us, which means dropping those dull winter warmers in favour of some sizzling hot trends which ooze boho glamour.  

Taste the rainbow and get summer party ready in these succulent multicolour Sophia Webster sandals. These beauties are so irresistible they should really come with an envy warning!

Fluorescent pom-poms and tassels are big news and will take the festival fashion scene by storm this summer, be they on wedges or flats. An unlikely comeback that’s cool, colourful and a little eccentric, this trend is a festival in itself.


Block heels meet block colour, with plenty of ditzy tassel detailing, pom-poms and laces to add an element of Coachella cool. Not only are these Aquazzura offerings easy to walk in they tick every 2017 style box. Eye catching and comfortable, you really can have the best of both worlds!

Rebecca Minkoff’s relaxed yet vivid vibe is going right in my beach bag this summer!

Bardot dresses, cork style heels and patent tote bags are big news, with spring approaching these are sure to take you through to the summer days & nights. There are a lot of possibilities with these looks. You could even add a biker jacket, denim or blazer for added edge and warmth, should the summer nights still have a chill in the air.

Brighten up Spring’s top trends with big blocks of bold colour. Clashing is all very well as long as the hues complement each other or match small details in your ensemble.

Accentuating one or two colours works, for example a red dress with some white accessories to compliment the subtle white patterning in the dress.


Gingham is a timeless summer trend that’s instantly awakened with a pop of bright colour and a classic accessory.  Coral shades are a modern alternative to red.  If you want to keep the look a bit quieter, gingham and tan also make a good pairing for spring and summer.
