Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…


… Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favourite things… you knew the lyrics already right? OK, so in celebration of June being Beauty Month here on QVC, I thought I would do a blog devoted to my favourite things. While there are many, from coffee on the patio in the sunshine, to date night with either my husband or one of the children, there’s plenty to be loving. However, let’s talk beauty products.

So, B is for Beauty Month, and I thought I would put my top 10 beauty picks down on “paper” for you. It’s been fun trying to decide what they are, but I have been strict with myself and only allowed items that I have consistently used for more than two years as I reckon that’s a good tell-tale sign as to whether or not it’s a “favourite”.

If you are on Instagram, there are a few others, as I have posted one every single day for the month of June and they are all archived on my page under “Beauty Faves”, so if you’ve not seen them there yet, you can catch up! But here we go with my absolute top 10, in no particular order of importance though as they are all so very different to each other…

  1. Percy & Reed Wonderbalm
  2. Elemis Cleansing Balm (I always use it with the Ginseng toner)
  3. Decleor Hydra Floral
  4. IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara
  5. Mally Starlight Eyeliner in Midnight (black)
  6. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge Blusher
  7. Gatineau Radiance Enhancing Gommage
  8. Liz Earle No. 15
  9. Liz Earle Shampoo
  10. OPI Nail Envy

Speaking of whiskers on kittens, after a few trips back to the vet, Sherbert has finally turned a corner and is healing well. Moonface has been absolutely adorable and has (temporarily I’m sure) stopped pouncing on him from a great height, and has instead taken to washing the parts he couldn’t reach when he had the cone on, it’s been adorable to see some genuine brotherly love going on – quite remarkable too as he’s a beast the rest of the time!

Have a wonderful week and catch up soon, or have a look at my social media – here are my Twitter and Facebook links.

Much love

    Hi Pipa what a lovely story about the brotherly love between the cats. So cute! Love your top 10 beauty favs, especially LE No 15. I too adore this and i think its the most times i have ever repeat bought a fragrance. I often get compliments and am asked what im wearing. I have been thinking of my own top 10 but, thanks to QVC beauty, is extremely hard to stick to 10! x
