A Love Letter To The Comforter

Tuesday, 22 August 2017
I've had love affairs with LUSH soaps, jellies, gels and scrubs, but none have been as passionate or tragically short-lived as my romance with The Comforter. Upon hearing of it's discontinuation, I decided to pick up my first-ever bottle last week. In the most twisted turn of events, The Comforter has turned out to be my mysterious Mr. Right I have been waiting my whole life to meet... and I'll never be able to own a bottle of it again.

Alone again... Naturally.

The Ultimate Guide To Beautiful Blog Photography

Friday, 18 August 2017

Crafting gorgeous photos is my absolute favourite thing about being a blogger. I recently stumbled across some photos from 2015 when I first started blogging, and was so shocked at how awful they were that I made a twitter thread showcasing the difference two years had made. From that thread, I received loads of requests to share my 'secrets' and how I had improved my photos to the quality that they are now, so I decided to put together this ultimate guide to beautiful blog photography.

Review: LUSH Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask

Tuesday, 15 August 2017

If you were one of the people mouthing "what the fu..." under your breath when you saw LUSH had released jelly (???) face masks, then this review is for you. I for one was pretty excited when I saw the selection of jelly products pop up on the LUSH website as my face masks usually go out of date before I've used them all up, so to have something a little different and longer-lasting intrigued me.

Review: LUSH Honey Gift Box

Saturday, 12 August 2017

Living by the "treat yo'self" mentality, I always make sure to order myself lots of goodies each time payday comes around. This month's spoils were in the form of a lovely LUSH haul, which included the newly-released Honey gift box.

Strangely enough, I actually hate honey. I can vaguely remember my grandpa giving me a spoonful of honey when I was younger to cure a cold, and immediately being sick. I haven't had it since, but after playing with the Scrubee body butter at the Mother's Day launch event and adoring the sweet scent of it, I added the Honey gift box to my basket when I spotted it online this payday.

What's In My Holiday Beauty Bag?

Saturday, 5 August 2017
I'm writing this snuggled up in bed very excited, as in less than seven hours time we are setting off for holiday! This year we are headed to Tintagel in Cornwall, and my boyfriend is joining us halfway through the week. I have been looking forward to this holiday for months, as after recently changing job roles I have really needed a decent break away from work! This year I have upgraded to a larger toiletry bag and just couldn't resist this adorable Rugrats one from Primark. It's super cute, so let's take a look inside...

Why I Will No Longer Buy From Too Faced

Friday, 28 July 2017
Isn't it awful when your go-to beauty brand lets you down, to the point where you no longer want to buy from them? I recently had an experience with Too Faced which has left me reeling and questioning where I spend my hard-earned cash. Before you all die of shock, don't panic. I'm not boycotting Too Faced, I'm just no longer buying directly from their website. Here's why...

200k Beauty Giveaway!

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

I can hardly express how truly proud I am that Dainty Alice has hit 200,000 all-time page views! It's barely been nine months since I celebrated 100,000 with a Too Faced palette giveaway, so I could hardly resist hosting another one to mark the occasion. This time it's bigger and better as a way of giving back to all my lovely followers and readers, and saying 'thank you' for the constant support and love my blog has been given over the past year and a half.
