Review: Braun Silk Epil 9 Epilator SkinSpa

One of the irritating things about being female is that most of us don’t particularly want to be strolling about with hairy armpits, legs and everything else.

Mama loves: #LFHelloBeautiful box

I spend very little time (or money!) on my beauty routines since having children, it’s a far cry from having boxes and drawers full of lotions potions and makeup like I had pre-kids!

Banish bad bathroom bounty #MiraGiftmas

  How many times have you made this face  when you really hoped to be making this face when you’ve opened up a gift of bath or beauty products from someone at Christmas?
