As you will know by now, I am a Lush addict. A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to experience some of Lush Oxford Street's products, so wanted to share them with you too. Lush's new flagship branch on London's Oxford Street has hundreds of unique products that you can't get in any other Lush store.

Last week, I went to meet the owners of online retail store Wear Eponymous at their pop-up shop in Glasgow. Wear Eponymous is a fabulously curated site of luxury independent British fashion and lifestyle designers and their products. Their aim is to offer their customers an easy way to shop quality unique brands that you can't easily find elsewhere.

The packaging on new brand Bagsy's products is so beautiful- pretty prints and inspirational quotes adorn the cardboard boxes. I just couldn't resist them! Inside, the products themselves are either slim or compact in size, as the whole Bagsy range is designed to be handbag friendly. As well as being portable in design, the makeup itself is very often multi-use; freeing up even more space.
It's time for another giveaway! One of my readers will win all of these miniature high-end beauty brand skincare samples. It's a great way to try lots of new brands and products from the likes of Darphin, Lancome, Clarins, Rodial, and Giorgio Armani. There are face oils, moisturisers, serums and cleansers; and all you have to do to win them, is follow the Rafflecopter instructions below...

Backed in January I reviewed The Body Shop's Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask (here) and hailed it as a holy grail product. It is and I've talked lots of times since about how much I still love the stuff. It was an original, but now Vichy have brought out a rival product that pretty much does the same thing.

It's true that I mostly wear my hair tied up in one way or another; but when I leave it down, I like it to have a really messy and textured look. I'd heard good things about the Windle & Moodie hair salon in London, so I was keen to try something from their range of hair care products and I opted for their Texture Cream.

Last year, I reviewed a gorgeous ombre monochrome pair of sunglasses (blog post here) from Firmoo- an online optical store. This year, they asked if I wanted to review another pair, so I opted for these green and brown beauties.

As you'll know if you read my blog regularly, I am Lavender-obsessed; so when I saw this collection from Scottish Fine Soaps, I just had to try it. From their Larch & Lavender line-up (that smells like a Scottish woodland in Spring), I have the body butter, the reed diffuser and the hand & nail cream.

A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed Lottie London's fabulous makeup brushes (here). Now the brand have kindly offered me some of them to give away to one of my readers. The brush set above, plus a Lottie London mirror and the pictured pastel nail lacquers will all be going to one lucky winner.

The black They're Real Mascara and They're Real Liner have been out on sale for quite some time now, and they have gone down a storm (especially the mascara). I reviewed the black liner here. Now, Benefit have expanded the range by adding colours- four new liners (£18.50 each) and two new mascaras (£19.50 each).

Tammy Koslowski is the very definition of #GirlBoss, and if you haven't heard of her nail decal brand DIY Nails then I don't know where you've been. She has just launched NAF! Salon- a quirky, girly paradise that opens on July 14th in Glasgow city centre. I, of course, couldn't resist a sneak peek and a pre-opening manicure appointment.

As a Diet Coke addict, my teeth bear the brunt of my excessive consumption. I'm on a diet, don't smoke and rarely drink alcohol; so if Diet Coke is my vice, then I'm not going to give it up as I could have chosen much worse. It does badly stain my teeth however, and I was really starting to notice it in photographs; especially if I was smiling in them alongside someone else.

Last week I attended a Debenhams press event- their Debenhams Summer Soiree party at Gusto restaurant in Glasgow. Gorgeous swimwear from their Designers at Debenhams labels were showcased, and I adore some of the pieces. I wanted to share with you my top picks from their swimwear ranges, plus some exclusive snapshots from the event itself.

If you are self-employed and work at home, you'll know how organised you need to be to pull it off successfully. I juggle so many things at once as a full-time blogger and journalist- including the back-end maintenance of my own two sites, answering my emails and reading press releases, pitching collaborations, researching new product launches, attending events, tracking my income and expenses, planning my editorial calendar, photography and actually writing all the content I need to write.
