CoolSculpting at Pulse Light Clinic*


Last year, before my life took a turn down 'Sick Joke Alley', I decided I'd treat myself to some 3D Lipo on my abdomen before going on holiday to Mykonos. This was a decision I came to as a result of having enjoyed [several] packs of cookies, completing minimal exercise & because I was feeling pretty out of shape. My self confidence is pretty sh*te at the best of times, but my new wobbly form and the thought of other humans having to witness my body in a bikini felt like too much - I didn't want to inflict that view on others.

My main issue was that I booked the trip pretty last minute, so I didn't exactly have a lot of time before the vacay to put myself on a pure diet or start exercising 23234 times a day; which was why I called upon this service. And I'd also like to state at this point, that as long as you're happy and healthy, noone should feel under any obligation to lose weight or conform to a certain look... but I personally wanted a little boost to get my figure back to how it had been before the accident I had in 2014. 


A lot of my friends had questions about the process - but the main things I took from it were that it didn't hurt [at all], the girl who administered my treatments over the course of 6 weeks was an absolute babe & we got on ridiculously well - and that I did see a difference at the end of it. A combination of these treatments, drinking lots of water and [slightly] reducing the amount of sh*te I ate did help my stomach become much firmer & I think I lost a few inches around the old hips too. 


If this kinda treatment sounds like something you might be interested in, I have a great offer from Pulse Light Clinic in London to share with you guys today - on their innovative CoolSculpting treatment. This fat freezing miracle contours your body by freezing unwanted fat away - no pain, needles, downtime or surgery necessary.

CoolSculpting is suitable for treating:

- Under the chin
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Abdomen
- Flank
- Underneath the buttocks
- Inner & outer thigh

The treatment itself uses fat freezing Cryolipolysis technology; which is an effective method used to eliminate fat cells, without damaging the surrounding tissue / skin.

During the treatment, the CoolSculpting pack is placed over the area of fat to be treated and left in place for one hour. During this time, you can rest, read, check your emails or even have a sly nap; all in the relaxing environment of PulseLight's clinic. Whilst you're chillaxing, fat is frozen; which causes the fat cells to die. They're then flushed out of your system by the body's natural processes - which remove them from the area they originated from and eventually, the whole body.

Here's a cheeky video, if you fancy learning a little more on the topic.

Beauty BARGAIN Hunter?! | Chemist4U Have Got U*


If, like me, you want to buy ALL THE THINGS, forget about Natwest's angry credit card letters & simply roll around in a sea of makeup... but you're also on a budget... life can be tough. Though inspirational, fun and packed full of incredible memes [and a sh*t tonne of draaaaamaaaa] sometimes; the blogging community & the influencers within it can occasionally make us feel like we need to buy everything and that if we can't afford something, we're 'bad bloggers.' Which totes isn't true, btw.

With my [intense] lack of budget and this constant exposure to others' blogs packed full of pure high end beauty & wealth, I can sometimes find myself feeling like a bit of a let down larry when it comes to the products I'm able to afford, enjoy and feature. 

But you know what? If you know where to look, you can find [& feature] LOADS of high end products & luxury brands for less. So it's not game over for those of us on strict budgets; by any stretch of the imagination. And that's where Chemist4U come into things. Budget bloggers REJOICE - these babes of babetown have LOADS of fab products & brands all at low, low prices just waiting to be discovered, sprayed, worn, enjoyed & gifted to loved ones this Christmas.

In case you hadn't already figured, Chemist4U are... drumroll please for the big reveal... an online pharmacy & chemist. But they're also much more than that. Regardless of whether you're looking for beauty or spa products, picking up a test to see if you're preggo or stopping by to order ya prescription meds; everything you need [and more] can be found on their website; just a few clicks away - & at affordable prices. Their beauty range is pretty impressive - covering makeup, haircare, shaving, fake tanning and fragrances, from some fab brands.

Chemist4U have some way fab reduced perfumes & fragrance / aftershave gift sets that'd make theeeee best Christmas gift ideas... for him, her or yourself, cos yeno... as Cheryl once said in them TV ads when she worked with L'Orealyou're worth it. I decided to pick up this Thierry Mugler Angel* fragrance from their website [which had SUBSTANTIAL savings on it at the time I ordered, similar reductions you can see illustrated with this larger bottle of Angel] because I adore Mugler fragrances & their striking bottle designs - Alien being a particularly memorable scent for me.

There are many things in life I'm good at - oversleeping, overeating, procrastinating and lolling at my own jokes being a few; but I'm not at all good at describing fragrances. Angel to me is a rich, peppery, sensual-yet-sweet kinda smell; pretty powerful and a little on the magical kinda side of life. Similar to Alien, if you've ever smelt that [aka dead fit.] 

On the [extremely likely] chance that my description of the perfume's scent was entirely unhelpful; here's how the experts describe it, for a more... understandable and much less vague breakdown: 'Angel is a mouth-watering delicious and sensual fragrance - a delicate blend of sweet Red Fruits, Soft Caramel, Honey and Praline; combined with the captivating power of Patchouli and Vanilla. Angel is a luxurious, chic and timeless fragrance with a seductive edge.'

Secondly, I was tempted in a big way by the expansive range of top quality OPI nail polishes Chemist4U boast on their site ... if there's one thing I can never seem to buy enough of, it's nail polish. Or possibly lipsticks; that's another huge weakness of mine [again, I apologise profusely Natwest.] So I decided to opt for this limited edition Gwen Stefani OPI Nail Polish in the apt seasonal shade Just BeClaus.* I love OPI nail polishes; they apply so evenly and bright - none of that shady streaky behaviour.

Chemist4U Beauty Bargains Review Thierry Mugler Angel OPI Gwen Stefani Just BeClaus Nail Polish review Lovelaughslipstick Blog
Chemist4U Beauty Bargains Review Thierry Mugler Angel OPI Gwen Stefani Just BeClaus Nail Polish review Lovelaughslipstick Blog

I can't normally justify OPI's prices, being the raging tramp that I am. But my baes at Chemist4U have totes changed the game... their genuine OPI products are just £2.99 - a 70% saving!!! Even my poverty stricken life can't argue too much with that discount [but Natwest will probs have a moan. Spoilsports.]

Chemist4U Beauty Bargains Review Thierry Mugler Angel OPI Gwen Stefani Just BeClaus Nail Polish review Lovelaughslipstick Blog

As well as being classed as a 'holiday' shade, Just BeClaus is the nicest maroon / berry / plum shade - undoubtedly perfect for Autumnal looks, but also a colour I tend to wear all year round. It's like my dream polish tbh; totes why I picked it. That and, of course, its AMAZING price!

Chemist4U Beauty Bargains Review Thierry Mugler Angel OPI Gwen Stefani Just BeClaus Nail Polish review Lovelaughslipstick Blog

I won't lie, I've fallen heavily in love with Chemist4U's huge range of beauty products [& most importantly, those reductions!] and am totes impressed at the selection they stock. There's some amazing fragrance gift sets, Christmas advent calendars and totes cute little stocking fillers like this OPI nail polish in their online store; meaning you can get the festive season pretty much boxed off in one.


Don't forget to give them a good old stalk - they're on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. As am I, like [well, apart from on Facey B] if you wanna hit my socials up too... *winky face* *shameless plug*

Christmas COVERED With Prestige Hampers*


Xmas legit arrived early the other day, when this AMAZING luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper* from Prestige Hampers landed on my doorstep. Packed full of festive foods, seasonal snacks and wonderful wines, this gorgeous vintage-esque hamper is pretty much Christmas personified. I'm not even the most festive kinda gal tbh - miserable Scrooge-esque old hag is probs the best way to describe me... but genuinely, opening up this hamper & discovering all the beautifully thought out edible surprises it contained got me right in the Xmas spirit.

Luxury is right - the wonders in this wicker basket are everything Christmas is about. Whether you decide to spoil a loved one with their own Prestige Christmas Hamper or order one in so you're fully stocked with snacks for over the festive season; this option firmly has yo back. And I can tell you from first hand experience that everything it contains is insanely tasty [especially the biscuits, wine and posh crisps!] so there'll be zero chance of disappointment from the recipient.

Packed full of festive fancies and decadent delicacies [and wine, not overlooking the wine!] this delivery took my legitimate breath away. Nestled within the beautiful handmade hamper was literally all kinds... as I dug deeper, I uncovered more & more gorgeous items, all of which perfectly met the expectations of what a traditional Christmas looks like to me. And the hamper itself is abso-bloody-lutely gorgeous... it's hard to gauge what I was most excited over, tbf!

Even just reading over that list of goodies makes my stomach rumble. There's so much included... especially given the fact it's reduced down to just £64.99; which makes it fantastic value - regardless of whether you order one as a gift or to have these yummy festive bits in your gaff in time for Christmas. Or maybe just for the hamper itself! There's so many plus points when ordering a Prestige Christmas Hamper.

Some standout items from this hamper for me were:

- These little Mackays Festive Preserves - how could you NOT feel insanely Christmassy looking at these cute jams?! The packaging is gorgeous and that tartan detailing is giving me all the festive feels. And they're so damn Instagrammable.

- BISCUITS! What is life - or a hamper - without biscuits? A SHAM... I'll answer that for you. Obviously I am insanely greedy and a big fat pig these days, so I have totally eaten all of the above... and bloody hell, they were nice. I love shortbread, and this luxury selection of festive biccies was incredible; as well as seasonally packaged. And the red velvet biscuits were UNREAL - some of THE nicest biscuits I've ever scoffed.

Prestige Hampers Luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper Review

- This English Breakfast Tea. Although I'm a coffee kinda gal ordinarily, I properly LOVE English Breakfast Tea; there's just something about that blend that ranks it light years ahead of your regulation Tetley tea bags. I feel so civilised and middle class having this in my cupboards.

Prestige Hampers Luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper Review

- These crisps have changed my outlook on life forever. Over dramatic I am not. My gal KT warned me about how nice these crisps were, and although I totes believed her, I was not prepared for how incredible they actually were once I started snacking on them. The tastiest damn crisps I've ever eaten, and all I can think about since they came into my life. 

Prestige Hampers Luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper Review

- This luxury dark chocolate was beautifully rich and equally beautifully packaged. Naturally, as with anything chocolate-based which enters my house, it didn't last for long... but for the short time that it did, it was super yummy. This with a cheeky glass of red wine is a combo that can't be beaten. 

Prestige Hampers Luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper Review

- Wine. Need I say more? Because of how ill I've been this year I haven't even had a sip of alcohol since like... February. And seeing actual WINE face to face and hearing the familiar clink of the glass bottles for the first time after all those months brought legit tears to my eyes. I've become more of a red wine kinda gal in my old age, but I had a couple of glasses of this Water Stop Station Chardonnay the other day and it was really, really nice - I proper enjoyed it. Just the absolute icing on the cake on what was already a bloody fantastic first experience with a luxury hamper for me.

The NEW RELEASES From Technic You Need To See. IMMEDIATELY*


Yes, I'm obsessed with Technic Cosmetics. Their new releases continue get better and better as they grow - yet their prices stay dead affordable [even for me, and I'm pure poor!] and their products remain cruelty free; which is excellent news for fluffy pets everywhere & a massive tick in my [metaphorical] book. Here's a few of their products which have just dropped which you should pretty much drop everything for, to ensure you get them in yo lives.

I HAVE to kick off this post with these new lip products; they're INSANE!! You may have seen on my Instagram stories, I went a bit mad swatching the nude lippies up my arms and all kinds - they're soooooo pigmented and creamy. Therefore, this blog post is most likely going to 95% be an ode to lipsticks #SozNotSoz

Their Colour Max Matte Lipsticks  are probs my lipstick of the year tbh - I LOVE them and if you think I'm being overdramatic [there's a slight chance I might be, like] ... just get your hands on some yourself and you'll exactly understand why I want to marry them.

Technic Colour Max Matte Nude Edition Lipsticks* £1.99 each
In shades Stripped, Pout And About, Bare Don't Care & Exposé

Can. we. just. take. a. friggin. MINUTE pls?! How amazing are these shades? These lippies are my favourite, go-to nudes of the moment - and [as I blurted out above] possibly all time, tbh. There's a nude for every mood in this brand new range... and each of them is the most pigmented ever, super creamy and glide on like a dream.

In shades Potion, Crave, Kiss & Tell and Mars

Well, these are the most BEAUT shades for Autumn, aren't they?! I'm buzzing to see glossy, shiny lipglosses making a comeback.. as as much as I love a matte finish, I do like to mix it up a bit sometimes; and a glossy, fresh faced lip tint can make the world of difference to my somewhat haggard looking face. Potion and Mars are legit perfect rich, plummy shades to embrace the colder weather with, Kiss & Tell is the prettiest, glossiest nude and the sexy bold red Crave ticks all the boxes for Christmas night out makeup looks.

As you'll now have grown to expect from this budget brand that keeps on giving; every one of these glossy Goddesses is extremely pigmented - providing a long lasting, on fleek finish. Super shiny, mega glossy, dewy shades to match every mood and outfit this Autumn / Winter. I can't wait to start wearing these, for a change from matte lip products.

Sassy Slogan Makeup Bag*

How FAB is this slogan makeup bag?! I love the minimal black & gold vibes and the ultimate sass.  These fab, affordable accessories make perfect stocking fillers [and blog photo props!] and come in a variety of fun designs. Now, I just need to work on getting my somewhat mad eyebrows perfect, to match my new fave makeup bag!

Hands up who just had to try this before photographing it for the blog? As you may be able to tell, I couldn't resist giving this a go as soon as it arrived... I love how innovative and handy its design is. It's a fab sugar scrub, packaged as a sleek lipstick [not like any lip scrub products I've seen before!] which when applied in a circular motion and rinsed with warm water, smooths your lips pre-lipstick application. So you're ready to neck on with whoever you frigging well choose. Just don't press too hard with it when you're applying the scrub, or it bloody hurts!

Pink is my fav, and I love how bright and fun these brand new brushes from Technic are. Their design totes reminds me of Blank Canvas Cosmetics' brushes... just cheaper, obv! I actually really needed a new fan brush, so these babein' brushes couldn't have landed on my doorstep at a better time [thanks Paul the Postman.]

Technic Cosmetics Makeup Brushes Pro Large Fan Brush, Pro Fan Brush, Pro Flat Edge Brush Pink Lovelaughslipstick Blog

Each brush is extremely soft, and the length / feel of their handles & design make them easy to control when getting yo highlight poppin' and carving out ya contour. The fan brushes are obv perfect for getting that highlighter on fleek [I'm obsessed with the Pro Large Fan Brush for really building up shimmer on my cheekbones] and beautifully soft on the skin; giving you dat natural glow.

The Pro Flat Edge Brush is a bit of a multi-tasker / all round fitty... perfect for achieving a super precise, sculpted contour; but also the ideal candidate for applying foundation or concealer, too. Three staple makeup brushes that you'll get use out of all year round, for prices that won't break the bank [but might help you break a few hearts.]

Technic Cosmetics Makeup Remover Cloth Pink Lovelaughslipstick BlogTechnic Cosmetics Makeup Remover Cloth Pink Lovelaughslipstick Blog

Makeup Remover Cloths are big news at the moment... and Technic aren't one to miss a trick, they're constantly evolving and expanding their collection of cosmetics; to cater for the latest beauty trends. I personally love these bad boys, they're so easy to use and soft on the skin. No products required - just a cloth and some hot water. A fail-safe stocking filler; kind to all skin types and totes effective at removing ya makeup fast. You've totes gotta get on the hype, if you haven't already.

Once again, I'm blown away by Technic's latest offerings - the pigmentation, quality and on-point qualities of everything they release is undeniable and I admire how they continue to recognise & cater for new makeup trends at great prices; season after season.

You can shop their range via Love Thy Makeup, Beauty Base, Amazon, Just My Look and Peacocks - to name just a few stockists. Visit Technic's website for more details.
