A Christmas Present... To Myself!

I just can't get enough of this chunky lip crayon craze!

Forever on the hunt to find the perfect burgundy polish.

A Star Lineup

I've stripped my skincare routine right back and my skin has been reaping the rewards.

Top Picks: Christmas Gift Sets

Brands are really pulling it out of the bag this year aren't they?

I'm A Rubbish Blogger

Posts are few and far between nowadays. I'm not gonna lie, it's because most of the week I just wanna come in, have my tea and wind down from work! Sad but true.

A Dewy Glow for Oily Skin

I think I've finally found a product that helps me achieve a natural dewy look without looking like an oily, sweaty mess.

Feelin' Peachy

I'm suffering with some serious post-holiday blues so in an attempt to cheer myself up I've been donning a peach lip of late. There is something about the colour peach that just screams Summer, isn't there?

Shopping For The Home

I can't wait to have a house of my own to fill with weird and wonderful things. My 'Home' wishlist on Amazon is evergrowing. For now, I'll have to settle with mixing up my boudoir...

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 //

I love searching notonthehighstreet, lovelaughlove and giftsandpieces for new additions. Laura Ashley has recently made it onto my radar - I am obsessed with the globe featured above. Isn't it just bea-utiful?

I'm just waiting for the word 'go' from my boyfriend before I start collecting bits for our first home together. If I had it my way I'd have the whole house furnished with quirky knick knacks before we even started looking to buy haha! Just imagine the amount of stuff I could collect in the space of a year.. ;)

What sites/stores do you like for homeware?

Testing Testing...

Eucerin aren't a brand I'm overly familar with so when I got the chance to try out their cleanser aimed at oily blemish prone skin (erm, hello!) I was all for it. Imagine my delight when not only the cleanser arrived on my doorstep - but also a ton of other sample size products for me to dip my toes into.

Side, Turkey

If any of you have noticed that I've been AWOL recently its because I've been away catching some rays in Turkey. I thought I'd put together a little post to say hello and share some of my photos with you!

Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil by The Body Shop

I never thought I would ever sit here raving about an oil cleanser, but here we are. As an oily/combo gal I believed that oil + oil = big no no! It's only recently that I've really started to see the benefits from incorporating oils into my routine.

A Little Update..

I've been a rubbish blogger lately. It's not that I haven't had things to talk about - I've certainly been buying enough (!) - I just haven't had the time to sit down and put together some posts. So for that reason I'm not going to apologise, life can get hectic sometimes and that's okay.

Smashbox Limitless 15 Hour Cream Shadows

I've been on a total beauty binge this last month and I'm not even sorry! I picked up these two beauties last week from Boots on a complete whim. I hadn't heard much about them before but they were too pretty for me to resist. I have no self control.

Nails Inc 'Shoreditch'

When one of my colleagues brought in a bag full of beauty goodies that were free to go to a good home a few weeks ago you betcha bottom dollar that I was the one of the first to jump in. Imagine my luck when I stumbled across this gorgeous hot pink polish from Nails Inc?

Polabora Instagram-esque Prints!

Something a little different today - but far too good not to share!

L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire by Color Riche

I almost always opt for a matte lip but lately I've been swaying towards more of a glossy look.. and that's all down to L'Oreals new L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick

March Favourites!

Well, this is new.. I'm actually putting together a monthly favourites post! I don't normally have many products to talk about but this month I've been rekindling my love for some old  (and new) faves that are just too good not to share!

REN ClearCalm3 Replenishing Gel Cream

Have I finally found my holy grail of moisturisers? I suppose its too soon to tell - but REN's ClearCalm3 Replenishing Gel Cream is very close to making the cut.

Products NOT Worth The Hype

I'm not often a negative nancy on duggydimples but on occasion I come across some pretty disappointing products and I think they are just as - if not more - important to know about.

High End Lustin'

Last weekend marked my first ever trip to Space NK (it seriously is like a stepping into a beauty bloggers dream land). After a chat with the loveliest sales assistant and a good browse of the shelves I ended up adding quite a few things to my beauty lust list. Speed forward to this weekend and you'd find me laid up on my sofa nursing the flu and feeling incredibly sorry for myself. Put 2 + 2 together and what do you get? A ton of internet shopping.

I Jumped So High I Touched The Clouds

I had some holidays to use up at work this week so I spent some time catching up with friends and family, wedding dress shopping (swoon) and celebrating Craig's birthday. We went for a yummy meal and found a cute pub that was holding an open mic night so we sat their for a few hours listening to acoustic melodies and sipping on whiskey. Good times.

Revlon Matte Balm(s)

I had to make a four hour round trip to get my mitts on these lippies (dedication or insanity?). I jest, I jest... I did make a four hour round trip, but its sole purpose wasn't these lippies.

A Wintery Sunday Stroll...

Lazy Sundays filled with time spent with loved ones and good TV (Topgear, I'm looking at you) what's not to love?

If you haven't heard of the infamous MAC 217 then I assume you've been hiding under a rock?

Crowned as the top dog of blending brushes that can make even the eye shadow novices amongst us create a smokey look with ease... the only downside is the price - a jaw dropping £18. Well, my friends, I believe I've found a pretty good dupe for a much more purse friendly price of £3.99.

#BloggersWLW (2)

Ever have those weeks where nothing seems to fill/satisfy you and you just keep craving more and more food? Well, this was one of those weeks.

S5 Purity Serum

I've been holding off on posting this for a little while because (as silly as it sounds) I didn't want to 'jinx' it. I've suffered with constant breakouts for nearly two years now and as dramatic as this sounds, it starts to really take its toll on your confidence.

29 January 2014


FYI #BloggersWLW stands for 'Weight Loss Wednesday'; where all sorts of bloggers come together to chat about their weight loss journey, how they've been getting on and to share advice. Anyone that is trying to shift some weight will know that it isn't the easiest of tasks and that any extra bit of support/motivation is always welcome.

Rimmels Match Perfection Foundation

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I've found the perfect match (excuse the pun!) for my fair skin and it only cost £6.99. Oh my days. I've always found it really difficult finding a foundation to suit my fair skin and I almost always have to rely on high end brands. Or so I thought, until I stumbled across Rimmel's Match Perfection Foundation in the shade '010' Light Porcelain.

Dreaming Of A Shabby Chic Home...

I don't know about you but I think there's something about 'shabby chic' that just oozes character, warmth and style. All in all, I'm happy with my current bedroom décor (I can't wait to own my own house so I can fill it with shabby chic goodness!) - but a few additions here and there would never go amiss. After discovering this website I've added quite a few new things to my 'home' wishlist so I thought I'd share a few with you. I'll apologise in advance, if you're anything like me, you'll be adding a few things to your wishlist too!

Life Lately... #7

Can you tell I'm a little excited that I've finally got my mitts on a Canon 600D? Swoon.

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine No.4

I am well aware that it wasn't very long ago that I last blogged about a lipstick.. but as I mentioned in that post - I've been on a total lipstick binge this month. Every girl has a soft spot for something, whether its shoes or handbags.. mine just so happens to be lipstick! 
The latest lippie to grace my collection comes in the form of YSL's Rouge Volupté Shine in the shade '4'. YSL are the top dawg when it comes to packaging. It's almost too pretty to use (way too expensive not to though!) and it had both me and all of my colleagues ogling over it.

Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick in 'Rush'

I've been on a complete lipstick binge lately. I picked up Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick in the shade 'Rush' a few weeks back and more recently one of the infamous YSL Rouge Volupté lippies (swoon). I'd been wanting to see what all the fuss was about in regards to the UD range and let me tell you, they certainly live up to the hype.

Post Christmas Shopping

I know I'm not alone in thinking that this years sales were somewhat disappointing. I wasn't really 'wowed' by much if I'm totally honest. Nevertheless, I still managed to pick up a few things, and all in the comfort of my own home I might add. If you braved the high street in hunt of a good bargain I take my hat off to you; I'd much rather browse the sales online whilst slouching in my PJ's and eating copious amounts of chocolate.

Did you pick anything up in the Christmas sales?
