Ted Baker | The Girl With The Beautiful Face

Posted on December 8, 2014


Hi Guys!

I’m completely in love with Ted Baker gifts this Christmas, they have such a fantastic range of products on offer, from Mini Fragrance Tree Treats, Candles, bath sets and beauty & fragrance gifts, there really is something for everyone!

I have the amazing The Girl With The Beautiful Face set to show you today. This set really is the ultimate beauty gift that any girl would love to receive on Christmas day!

‘Lift the lid on Ted’s beauty secrets with this alluring selection of gorgeous goodies! From lashes to lips, it has all you need for a look to turn heads. This Ted Baker London The Girl With The Beautiful Face Make Up Kit makes a beautiful gift for ladies of luxury. The set comes in a pretty pastel cosmetic case, decorated with stylish vintage style illustrations and complete with mirror. Inside the lid are stunning cosmetics for face and nails, while the pull-out draw hides treats for lips and eyes.’



The set comes in a sturdy card box with a clear slip to protect it. The box itself is a pretty light green with pastel houses printed around the sides and inside lid.


You lift the lid to reveal two Illuminating Liquids on the left hand side in shimmery Pearly Pink and Golden Glow, and two nail polishes on the right in pewter and a festive bright red. There’s also a beautiful bronzer in it’s own purse-friendly mirrored compact, and a large bronzing brush. All the products are finished in Ted Baker’s signature metallic rose gold packaging which gives them a gorgeous luxe feel.


The lid of the box also includes a handy mirror on the inside.


As if that wasn’t enough, you then open the drawer below to reveal another tray of beauty goodies! This drawer holds a lip crayon and lipstick, rose gold eyelash curlers, two eye crayons, mascara and eyeliner.



The eye crayons are in very wearable shades of metallic pewter and gold. (The only products that appear to have their own shade names in this set are the Illuminators.) The formula is fairly sheer and easily blendable.


There’s also a handy mascara and felt tipped eyeliner pen. The mascara is pretty standard but the eyeliner really is great! It gives a fantastic sharp deep black line that lasted all day!


And finally there’s a lovely bright red lipstick to match the nail polish, and deep burgundy lip crayon.

Well what can I say, this set really is both beautiful and luxurious, and it literally has all the colour cosmetics you need to create a beautiful look this Christmas! I’m really impressed with both the presentation of the set and quality of the products – Ted Baker has created another winning gift! I’ve checked and been informed that The Girl With The Beautiful Face is currently sold out online but is still available from Boots stores for £40.

I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx

I’ve got a fabulous gift idea for you today – the Tales From The Earth The Beauty of Friendship Message Bangle. This bangle holds a secret message for you – a written wish that gently brushes your wrist a thousand times each day. Share the wish with those you trust, remember the person who gave it to you and feel blessed by the fact that you have a friend through thick and thin.

Tales From The Earth also have other engraved bangles on sale with different themes including – love, happiness, luck and adventure, so if you’re looking for a jewellery gift there’s a wide selection to choose from to suit different recipients.

Posted on November 18, 2014

If you follow me on  and  you may have seen my posts over the last few days teasing you with images of a new mystery item from The Dressing Room. I started of by showing you The Dressing Room’s pretty pink gift bag, then a beautiful bird print Olivia Burton box, but what could possibly be lurking inside? For those of you that don’t know, Olivia Burton is a fairly new watch company who are well known for their beautiful muted toned timepieces with depictions of butterflies, hummingbirds and flowers. They offer something delicate and new that has never been seen in the world of watches before. I can tell you I’m now the proud owner of an , which is exclusive to The Dressing Room! 😀

This striking Big Dial watch has a gorgeous rose gold oversized dial, with a gold plated case and a real leather strap with a cream coloured mock crock finish. It also comes in a beautiful presentation case and has a one year guarantee.



Olivia Burton’s packaging is so pretty, I had to share it all with you!

Glo & Ray Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set

Posted on November 10, 2014


Hi Guys!

I’ve got a fabulous little gift set to show you today – the Glo & Ray Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set. Glo & Ray are a new cosmetics brand to me, I’d never heard of them until now…

‘Glo & Ray made its debut in September 2012 in London. Glo&Ray is intended to present professional and carefree cosmetics for women worldwide. The product range applies to eyes, face, lips and more. The brand name is derived from “Glo”, a gentle luminance; and “Ray”, vibrant beam of light. This is Glo & Ray, elegant, glamorous, unique and professional.’


The Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set includes three La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour lipsticks in Asteria 648 (purple), Honey 647 (pink) and Marigold 644 (red). Honey and Marigold are both available to purchase separately for £12 each but Asteria is exclusive to the Shimmer Shimmer set.

Now I’m going to jump right in and say this – these lipsticks were not what I was expecting. In fact they’re much better. Let me explain… the name of the lipsticks and the set ‘ shimmer shimmer’ implies a shimmery, glittery, frosted-ness to me. But there is none of that in this set. The shades are clean and creamy, and every so slightly on the sheer side, but not what I would personally describe as a ‘shimmer’ finish. Either way, I really REALLY like these lipsticks. They give a beautiful high pigmented finish that’s hydrating and comfortable to wear. There’s no dragging or dryness and lips are left with a stunning pigmented colour and sheen. Marigold is definitely my favourite shade, it’s a bright, striking red-orange that’s perfect for a statement lip!

You can see in the first image that the set comes in a beautiful circular presentation box with a see through top, the packaging looks and feels high quality and would definitely make an excellent christmas gift for a lipstick lover! The lipstick cases also feel of high quality, they have a matte black finish and feel weighty and expensive.



This set gets top marks from me all round! The Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set is £36 from the Glo & Ray site, and I think it’s worth every penny.

I’d love to hear if you’ve heard of Glo & Ray before? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
