Superdrug recently opened a brand new store at Whiteley Shopping Centre in Fareham. Unfortunately I wasn't able to visit the store so Superdrug very kindly sent me some new and exclusive products to try out. Since there are so many, I've decided on a first impressions post with some more in-depth reviews coming later.
Viral might be the wrong word. My tweet- this tweet- has a grand total of 44 retweets. Yet somehow it's completely exploded. I've now been featured on Buzzfeed, The Daily Mail, The Sun, Metro and I've just found out it's on Cosmopolitan today too. I was even asked on This Morning, before they ignored my replies and just pretended they'd discovered it themselves. Not bitter...

Fun fact: Rylan was the first person I ever voted for on X Factor. I'd always watch it but, until 2012, never cared enough for a contestant to pick up the phone and actually spend my hard-earned cash on them.

Years ago, Helen convinced me to buy an Urban Decay lipstick, assuring me that they were amazing, and I was less than impressed (review here). It seemed only right that I give them another chance so settled on Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick in Criminal, partly because it was a matte pink but also largely because I liked the shade name.
Oh hey, guess who's all famous and shizz? I mean, appearing in a real life magazine is totally the same as being famous, right? A good few weeks ago now, way before the tea party, Blogosphere Magazine got in touch asking if I'd like to be their guest lifestyle editor. Let me tell you, I damn near bit their collective hands off!
