Online Shopping with Pouch

With the Christmas shopping in full swing, I am on the look out for vouchers and discounts that would help keep the cost of my Christmas shopping as low as possible. I still have quite a few items to get, but I on it and hoping to round-up all my shopping by the first week in December, so wish me luck.

I am doing ALL of my shopping online because I love shopping online and I find it so easy. Shopping online from the comfort of my home, anytime of the day is pure bliss for me. I don’t have to deal with the crowd and general rush going on at the moment.

So you can imagine how excited I was to come across a new shopping browser extension called Pouch.




Pouch is a browser extension that gives users access to the best available voucher code discounts straight to their shopping baskets. You don’t even have to actively search for voucher codes. Once you download the free browser extensions, it appears on your browser tab, and searches for voucher code discounts on retail sites you visit. Pouch ensures users never have to actively search for a voucher code again. Isn’t that the best online shopping tool ever? I think it is.

I downloaded this browser extension some days ago and I found it very user-friendly. It was very easy to download, no registration required. I just went on the website, and clicked on the “Download on Desktop for Free” tab. The download was completed in under 1 minute, and it has worked amazingly well ever since. It sits on the right hand of my browser. Once I click on the icon to check for available voucher codes on a website, all I need to do is simply paste the voucher code I want into the promo code box on the retail website I am shopping on to get the discount.

There are huge discounts available on thousands of UK websites like Marriott, The Body Shop, Adidas, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and many other stores. And these discounts here and there all add up in the end, and help save some money. I got 2 voucher codes on the Sainsbury’s website thanks to Pouch, some days ago.





As an online shopping lover and a very busy woman, I love the fact that Pouch would save me time and money without the hassle.  Once you download the very smart browser extension, it recognises the exact website you are on. When you click on the icon on the browser, it then presents the best available voucher codes for that website. It pretty much does all the work, you don’t even have to think it through.

I think Pouch is a great idea. The technology behind it still amazes me. I like the fact that I don’t have to go from 1 website to another in search of discount codes. And it is also completely free, and always will be.

How is your Christmas shopping going? Have you heard of the Pouch? What are your thoughts?

Product Review: The Body Shop Baked-To-Last Bronzer

The Bodyshop Baked to Last Bronzer Image


I remember checking my makeup bag one day and wondering why I didn’t have a bronzer. I heard about bronzers prior to trying one and I only heard good things. So I decided to buy this The Body Shop Baked-To-Last Bronzer. I have used it for some months now, and I like everything about it. Before I dive right into the review, here is what The Body Shop has to say about this product:

A natural-looking bronzer with a subtle shimmer. Handmade and slow-baked on a terracotta disc, it gives up to eight hours of colour.

  • Lasts up to eight hours
  • Handmade
  • Dermatologically tested

Here are my thoughts:


  1. I love the shade. I got mine in a warm glow and it suits my skin tone perfectly.
  2. It is a multi-tasking product. I sometimes use it as a highlighter, or I apply it all over my face with a powder brush, if I want a bit of glow.
  3. It stays on all day. It is definitely baked to last.
  4. It is quite affordable at £16.
  5. I love the texture. It feels so light on my face.
  6. It does not feel cakey and it is so easy to blend.

  1. I won’t use this to contour bronzer because of the shimmer.

I can clearly see myself buying this The Body Shop Baked-To-Last Bronzer. I am so very impressed with the product. It delivers as promised, and it even exceeded all my expectations. I recommend this bronzer to any woman in need of a new multi-tasking product in her makeup bag. The Body Shop Baked-To-Last Bronzer leaves you with a beautiful glow. It is definitely worth trying.

Halloween Makeup: Grumpy Old Troll


Hey guys. Welcome to October. Halloween is round the corner and I have a makeup look to inspire you this season. This is my first Halloween look ever, I have never tried creating one before, so I am proud to say this ‘grumpy old troll look’ is all mine. I created this look to inspire anyone who might need a makeup idea for Halloween and I am looking forward to creating many more Halloween makeup looks, and sharing them on the blog, so watch this space.

I achieved this look using my regular makeup products, which are mentioned and pictured below, as well as FreshLook ColorBlends contact lenses in Gemstone Green courtesy of Vision Direct.

Products/Steps Taken

To get the Grumpy Old Troll look for Halloween, I started off with a clean, moisturised face, I applied a bit of The Body Shop Instablur with my fingers to prep and prime my face and get it ready for the many colours about to come. I applied some Marykay medium coverage foundation in Bronze 504 using a Marykay flat foundation brush to even out my skin tone.


Then, I applied a whole lot of MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15 (which is a shade lighter) using a MAC concealer brush for a white effect.


Next, I created black and thick looking eyebrows using a Rimmel dark brown brow pencil to line the brows, The Body Shop Brow and Liner kit in Brunette and Brown shade to fill out the brows and a Rimmel Exaggerate black eyeliner to paint the brows black.


I tidied up the eyebrows using a Revlon brush with a bit of concealer to get rid of any excesses at the edges, I lined my eyes with a black Rimmel Soft Khol Kajal Eye Pencil, and applied MAC Greensmoke (a green smoky shade) and Electric Eel eyeshadows (a shimmering blue shade) with an angled shading MAC brush and blended both colours together with a MAC tapered blending brush.



Next, I lined my eyes with a black Rimmel Exaggerate eye liner, and added an exaggerated flick.



Next, I applied some more MAC Greensmoke eyeshadow underneath my lower eyelashes for a more dramatic effect, dabbed some Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NW45 all over the face with a The Body Shop powder blush, applied a MAC lip primer to smoothen the lips, and then shaded the lips all over with a Rimmel black lip pencil. The lips were also lined downward for a grumpy look.

Next, to contour and highlight, I applied a MAC Swiss Chocolate powder blush to my cheekbones for some definition, and The Body Shop Baked To Last Bronzer in a bronze shade: warm glow just above my cheekbones, under my eyebrows, down my nose and my chin for a healthy glow.


Then I put in my ColorBlends Gemstone Green contact lenses and applied several coats of Rimmel Extra WOW Lash Extreme Black mascara to both upper and lower lashes.

Finally, I decided to step the look up a bit and added some more of the MAC Greensmoke eyeshadow underneath my right eye and lined the edges with a MAC Carbon eyeshadow.
