NYX Pore Filler Primer [Product Review]


Besides the never-ending quest to find the perfect foundation, I'm also after the perfect primer. Not only do I require a primer to smooth over the surface of my skin (acne scarring), I also want my primer to help my foundation STAY PUT. I used to like Benefit Porefessional, but it's expensive and I don't really want to support a brand that uses the idea that wearing glasses is ugly in their marketing campaigns.

After examining a fair few testers in Boots, I came across NYX Pore Filler and decided to give it a whirl.

Denim Shorts, Pastel Stripes [Outfit Post]


The denim shorts are back! They really are the staple of a summer wardrobe aren't they? Not that we're going to get much of a summer in the UK. I hate how unpredictable the weather is at the moment. It's also difficult to dress appropriately for the work day knowing that one minute it's boiling hot, but the aircon is dodgy (read: ARCTIC) in the office and by the time I need to walk home it's monsoon season. What's a girl to do?!

Luckily, you don't run into these problems in Benidorm!

The Glitter Vixen's Guide to Benidorm


After my last post about Benidorm, I thought I'd back up my claims that Benidorm is a great place to go on holiday with some hard facts. Unfortunately, I've not had much chance to do proper travel posts since I started this blog in 2013, so I'm excited to put together my very first proper travel guide. Without further ado, here is The Glitter Vixen's guide to Benidorm.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation [Product Review]


My quest for the perfect foundation continues. After deciding to move on from the Revlon foundation I tried, my next choice was the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. I was drawn to this because in Boots, the Bourjois stand had descriptions next to all the different foundations explaining what kind of coverage each one offered. This particular foundation was said to give medium, buildable coverage and after experimenting on my hand, I decided to give it a go.

Denim Shorts, Pink Hearts


I haven't worn denim shorts for years. When I was in university all those years ago (!!!), I managed to find the perfect pair of cut off vintage Levi's and I loved them. Unfortunately, finishing uni, getting older and working behind a desk all took their toll and I gained weight, meaning my beloved Levi's were passed onto my sisters. While in Benidorm, I suddenly realised how much of denim shorts-sized gap there was in my life and set out to buy some.
