I’ve been missing you lately…

Hi There,

Long time no speak! I’m sorry I’ve been away so long. Life has been so hectic these past few months that I was just swept up in all the madness!
If you are still interested in my little posts then please let me know by leaving me a comment and I can re-start my lovely little blog.
For any of you that are interested, I got married to the love of my life in my absence.

We had a small legal ceremony here in the uk and then we took 12 of our closest friends and family all the way to Mexico for a destination wedding. It was the most magical time so thought I would share a few photos with you all.

Charles Worthington: Volume & Bounce Dry Texturising Spray

Hi There!

Today I will be doing a quick review on the Charles Worthington ‘Volume & Bounce Dry Texturising Spray’. This product is said to add volume and texture to the hair without leaving hair looking greasy or causing any damage. I thought that I had better put these claims to the test and let you guys know what I think!

Nivea: Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover

Hi There!

I recently finished a bottle of my favourite eye makeup remover (Clinique’s ‘Take The Day Off’ reviewed here) and decided that this would be an opportune time to trial a budget dupe product and let you guys know my thoughts! The product I decided to go with was the ‘Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover’ by Nivea as this is has a two-phase formula (oil & water) similar to that in the clinique remover.

Revlon: Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains


Hi There, 

Today I thought that I would do a super quick review on the Revlon ‘Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains’. I initially came across these products in Summer 2013 and decided to give them a go as the shades looked beautiful and I loved the idea of a hydrating lip stain as they are usually very drying.

Barry M: Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paints

Hi There!

The One That Got Away.

Hi There!

Keith and I have always had a soft spot for the acoustic version of Katy Perry’s ‘One That Got Away’. The lyrics are simple yet beautiful and the melody is very pretty. You can really hear raw emotion in her voice proving that she really is an excellent story teller. Having recently watched ‘Part of Me’, the Katy Perry film that follows her on the ‘California Dreams’ tour, and realising just how hard Katy works, I found a whole new appreciation and respect for her and her music. It is an incredible insight into how the life of a superstar is not as easy and glamorous as it seems and in my opinion, well worth a watch.

We have recorded our own little version of this lovely song, we hope you enjoy it!

Please let us know what you think! If you do like it please give the videos a ‘thumbs up’ and subscribe!

Lots of love,

Bana & Keith,xoxo

Lush: King Of Skin
