Latest In Beauty: Cosmopolitan Party Starter Edit

Its an on/off relationship I have with beauty subscription boxes. In theory, I love the idea. Who doesn't want a parcel of great products shipped to their door every month? But in practice, you often find yourself falling in and out of love with them, as some months are really great and others can get quite repetitive, or you just receive products you don't like. Having gone back and forth with Glossybox and Birchbox - the two best known monthly beauty sub boxes - I was ready for something a little bit different.

Step forward, Latest In Beauty. This service has been on my radar for a while. It has a slightly different approach, as you select the products that you want to receive. I decided to give it a try, and I've ordered my first standard box - more about that coming soon!

But they also do curated 'collection' boxes and this 'Cosmopolitan Party Starter Kit' really caught my eye. You can see what products are included before you order, similar to Tili box. At £25 its a bit dearer, but the value of the items you receive (around £121) is definitely worth it. You get 15 items from some great brands. I knew I would use everything in the box, so I felt it was well worth the price.

Let's get the party started and take a peek:

Black Friday Bargains | Beauty & Fashion Haul

Love it or loathe it, Black Friday has spread to the UK over the past five years or so, to the point where it’s now pretty inescapable.

For me, I’m not generally too excited by the idea- mainly because the offers just don’t seem that jaw-dropping. Perhaps I’m too much of a bargain hunter, but 20% off isn’t anything I’d fight other shoppers over, and that seems to be what most retailers offer in the UK, with perhaps one or two bigger loss-leaders.

Still, if you’re going to be buying something anyway, you may as well take notice of any discounts!

So, what did you pick up on Black Friday? I used it as an opportunity to try out a couple of products that had been on my wishlist, and order some items I had my eye on anyway. Here are the deals I found:

5 Top Secret Fashion Hacks The A-List Love


Although Hollywood is almost exclusively peopled by those who are genetically gifted, they are also helped every step of the way to look their best. Attended by an army of professional makeup artists, dieticians, personal trainers, hair stylists and - less openly - cosmetic surgeons, the already high stakes are raised even further, which can leave us mere mortals feeling as though they’re barely real.

While you may not have access to the kinds of budgets that A-listers can work with, there are some simple styling tricks you can use to celebrate your figure:
