Massive USA Beauty Haul & My Mall Box Service Review

Posted on June 20, 2017

Hi Guys!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my massive US beauty haul that I shared a little while ago on my stories. Over the past few months I’ve been purchasing LOADS of bits and pieces from various US sites and having them sent to my US PO Box address – and I’ve finally got round to shipping them over here.

I’ll just quickly touch on what I’ve ordered – I’ll have full reviews of everything coming up shortly, but if anything catches your eye please shout and I’ll make it a priority –

Stila Magnificent Metals Duo Chromes – These are the three new iridescent duo chrome finish Magnificent Metal Liquid Eyeshadows from Stila – they’re gorgeous! I bought these quite a while ago now and they’re still not available in the UK, so I’m really glad I picked them up.

Clarins 4-Colour Pen – This is actually available in the UK now, but out of stock unfortunately. This nifty little pen contains three eyeliners and a nude lipliner in a click pen style – it’s such an unusual and fun concept!

A Selection of Korean beauty products from MeMeBox – I picked up a load of weird and wonderful sounding products from MeMeBox, including the above Pony Effect eyeshadow palette and Primer, as well as plenty of masks, including bubble masks and magical foaming beans! And I also grabbed som wine themed makeup (as you do) – I’m actually thinking of starting a Youtube channel and trying these products out on there. I think it could be really fun trying them out live on camera. Let me know if you’d like to see that!

Tarte Shape Tape I’d been wanting to try Tape Shape forever, and though they sell it here at QVC, they never had my shade in stock. I picked up the two lightest shades.

Marc Jacobs Enamored with a Twist Set – This was just a real splurge, honestly I’m such a sucker for pretty packaging! As soon as I saw this limited edition set I knew I had to have it! This is a limited edition colourful makeup bag that contains three lip glosses.

Hanacure Starter Set – I think I originally saw this advertised on Facebook, it sounded like a great facial set, and seemed to have really great reviews.

Like I said, please do let me know if you’d like to hear more about any of these products!

So, let’s take about My Mall Box now…

It was actually about a year ago now that I first reviewed the My Mall Box service – and they’ve made quite a few changes and improvements since then. Just to briefly explain, My Mall Box is essentially a shipping service that allows you to purchase items from the US and have them shipped to the UK – where shipping usually wouldn’t be possible from the companies directly.

When I wrote my last review, there were still a few restrictions with My Mall Box, as certain companies don’t (and still don’t) ship to the UK, or even to PO Boxes in the US. My Mall Box have now overcome this hurdle by offering a service that will buy the item for you, and have it shipped to your dedicated PO Box My Mall Box address, before forwarding on to you in the UK. There is a small fee for this service, but it does allow you to pick up items that would otherwise be unable to get hold of. An example of this is Stila. As soon as I tried their Magnificent Metals I was in love, then when I saw the new Duo Chrome shades I had to have them! They aren’t yet available in the UK and the Stila US site doesn‘t ship to the UK, or to PO Boxes in the US. So I completed the Buy For Me option at My Mall Box, sent them payment and they ordered what I wanted and had it delivered to my own ‘box’ at the My Mall Box warehouse, ready to be sent on to me – easy!

This really is such a handy service to have, and I believe this is the only mailing company that offers it currently (but please tell me if I’m wrong). My Mall Box are also looking into offering some really handy additional services and options – such as discounts and deals for regular customers – they’ve told me they’ll be rolling out their new services throughout the rest of the year, so I look forward to finding out and trialling what they’ll be offering.

At the moment like I said above, you can get MMB to ‘buy for you’, and they also have a page on their site where you can compare their shipping rates and fees to other providers, so you can make sure you’re getting the best deal, as well as a calculator so you can check what shipping options are provided before going ahead and purchasing your items.

You can also split a package into two smaller packages, have multiple items opened and repackaged together (to keep shipping costs down) and there’s a very handy FAQ section on the site that literally covers everything – and you can always email their customer services team who are fantastic at answering questions too.

The only thing I would mention to be aware of is it’s worth making a mental note of the restricted items list before making any purchases. Just like the UK, there are certain problem items that they can’t ship – the things that would affect me personally are items like fragrances and candles. This is just a handy thing to know before you place any orders.

If you’re interested in purchasing products from the US, I’d highly recommend you sign up to MMB. It’s easy to use, convenient and cost effective. You can sign up hereand doing so via this link will also give you a credit to your account.

I’d love to hear if you use mail referring services? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Beauty: What’s New At Estee Lauder?

Posted on May 31, 2017

Hi Guys!

I have a few of Estee Lauder’s latest releases to share with you today – there’s a gorgeous new lipstick, various skincare items and also a couple of primers. Let’s take a look…

Starting with skincare, I have the DayWear Matte Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme (from £25.00 for 30ml at John Lewis) – this is a fantastic moisturiser for those with oily skin, as it helps to control oil and minimise shine throughout the day, whilst also reducing the look of visible pores. The formula is a fresh, ultra-light gel creme, which feels light and barely-there on the skin. It contains Estee Lauder’s Moisture Matte Technology to control oil for up to 8 hours – which is just what I need in this weather! My skin is usually quite dry, but more recently I’ve been getting oily areas around my nose and on my forehead. I’ve used this moisturiser a few times now and apart from leaving my skin feeling smooth and soft, it’s definitely helped keep the oil at bay.

I also have the Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil (£49.50 for 30ml at John Lewis) – this has been designed to use with Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum to help ‘lock in’ the serum. The Recovery Mask in Oil contains Chronolux™ and Anti-Oxidants to help fortify skin to fight the appearance of aging, and the formula promises to strengthen, nourish and rebuild, preparing the skin for the day ahead by boosting its natural resistance to environmental stressors.

On to primers now – I have the Matte Perfecting Primer (£22.50 at John Lewis) – this mattifying primer again is perfect for the warmer weather as it controls oil and shine, whilst creating a silky-smooth canvas ready for makeup application. Unsurprisingly it works really well teamed with the above Moisture Gel Cream. This primer is oil free, and gives the skin a lovely velvety matte finish.

And the Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer (£22.50 at John Lewis) – unlike the Mattifying Primer above, this lightweight primer is infused with skin-softening apricot essence to optically perfect skin, diffusing the look of pores and imperfections. It leaves skin with a smooth, even texture.

For eyes, I have the new Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Eye Gelée (£36.00 for 8ml at John Lewis) – this multi-action, fatigue-fighting eye treatment promises to improve firmness and reduce the look of lines, wrinkles and puffiness. It has a cooling, metal massage tip which feels really refreshing, and also helps to reinvigorate the eye area and brighten the look of dark circles.

And lastly the new Pure Colour Love Lipstick (£17.10 at John Lewis) – described as fun and daring lip colour with good-for-you ingredients that help smooth lips and renew moisture, the new Pure Colour Love Lipsticks are available in 30 different shades, with a variety of finishes. There’s mattes, shimmer pearls, chromes and cremes, so whatever finish you prefer, you’re bound to find the perfect lipstick for you. The Cremes, Chromes and Shimmers have a deliciously balmy texture, and the Mattes are bold, vibrant, rich, long-lasting, and feel weightless on the lips.

Out of everything, I think the DayWear Matte Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme has to be my favourite product. I just love how it makes my skin feel hydrated but without any greasiness, or ‘heavy’ feeling like you can get with certain moisturisers. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these products?

Beauty: Primark PS… InstaGirl Makeup & Revive Skincare Collections

Posted on May 12, 2017

Hi Guys!

It’s been at least a few years since I last tried any makeup from Primark, so when I heard about the new InstaGirl makeup range and Revive Skinare collection, I was intrigued to see how their products have come on over the last few years…

The InstaGirl Collection is described as a selfie-ready cosmetics range, comprising of 17 pieces to offer quick fixes for all of your prep and prime needs. The base products have been specifically designed with feature enhancing blue pigments that reflect light and brighten the skin tone, and they also promise to be to be ‘flash proof’ – nobody wants flashback when you’re trying to take a selfie 😀

The products themselves are very ‘now’ both in terms of the packaging and the colour palette Primark have used. The packaging is clean and minimalist – perfect for including in your Insta photos, and the shades are all muted nudes. Subtle yet pretty, this collection is clearly marketed at the selfie generation. – I just hope the products perform as well as they look.

For the complexion, I have the Face Protecting Prime & Anti Shine Balm, which is a compact containing a solid balm and a flat sponge applicator. As I’m sure you can guess, the balm is supposed to prime and prevent shine – well personally I can tell you it did an ok job for me, but I probably wouldn’t recommend it if you have particularly oily skin.

The Perfecting Stick, is a slightly different primer designed to minimise the appearance of pores. I actually quite liked this one, it did the job as a primer and definitely helped give my foundation a more flawless finish.

And the Flash Photo Powder, which is a translucent powder with light reflecting blue pigments for photo ready skin. This isn’t the worst product in the world, but it did look pretty white on my (already pale) skin – maybe this could work if you’re super pale and looking for a finishing powder though.

For lips, the Intense Liquid Lipstick I have is a gorgeous muted nude greige-pink, and matching Kissproof Lipliner Pencil in Nude Selfie. I really love the colour, and the formula is pretty decent considering the price. This isn’t the sort of liquid lipstick that dries down, but I don’t really see that as a problem. It gave great coverage with only one swipe, and lasted a good few hours before I needed to re-apply.

And I also have the Lip Plump Gloss – which is a bit of an oxymoron as it supposedly has a matte finish! This is a tingly, and cooling clear gloss with a light minty scent, that has an invisible finish. It gives a light plumping feeling, which is very similar to Too Faced’s Lip Injection Glosses but not quite as intense.

There’s also an InstaGirl Fragrance – of course. This is a sweet girly scent, that would definitely appeal to younger generations, and it’s the perfect size for your handbag.

And lastly I have the One Coat Nail Lacquer in shade Nude Selfie which matches the lip products nicely. This is actually a fantastic polish, only taking one coat for full opaqueness. It didn’t last particularly long before chipping but I can definitely overlook that for the sake of the price.

Prices for the InstaGirl Collection range from £1.50 for the Lip Liners up to £6.00 for the Face Palette.

And the Revive collection is Primark’s first beauty range specifically created to soothe the body, relax the mind and lift the soul. The six-piece collection contains body scrubs, energizing sprays and natural oils to help relieve the stresses of modern day life.

I have the ginger and lemon Energising Spray, which is perfect to use first thing in the morning – revitalising the senses in just one pump. And the Anti Stress Spray which contains Lavender, Geranium and Ylang Ylang which can be used to ease feelings of stress and tension.

The Rose & Peony Perfume Oil has been designed to use on the pulse points, offering a fresh yet gentle floral scent that can be worn on a daily basis. And lastly the Massage Oil, which is definitely my favourite product out of the Revive collection. It contains Olive, Sweet Almond, Safflower, Soybean and Rose Flower oils to revitalise, calm the mind and nourish the body from head to toe.

Prices range from £1.50 to £3.00 for the Revive collection.

Overall I’m really impressed. I must admit I didn’t have the highest of hopes for these products just because of the price point, but in fact both collections really are pretty decent, and considering the prices, I think they’re definitely worth a look.

Have you tried any of these products? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Skincare: Multi Misting with Pixi Beauty #MultiMisting

Posted on April 24, 2017

Hi Guys!

Ok so we’ve all heard of multi-masking? Well now Pixi Beauty are taking things one step further with multi-misting! Which as you can guess, is all about layering up your favourite mists, and using them together in a way that suits your skin.

Pixi Beauty have just added a couple of brand new mists to their ever-expanding collection of products, including the Vitamin Wakeup Mist and the Sun Mist. I have the new Vitamin Wakeup Mist (£16.00 at M&S) – which is described as a boosting toner mist to revitalize and awaken the complexion. It has an orange blossom water base, which is blended with skin-loving citrus fruit extracts, lavendar, and arginine for a wonderfully zesty scent that instantly refreshes the skin on contact. You can use this any time of day just to cool the skin and give it a bit of a boost, though I prefer a spritz first thing in the morning. It also works well to freshen your makeup during the day, giving skin a shot of hydration and protection.

The Hydrating Milky Mist (£18.00 at M&S) is another favourite of mine. This is a featherlight mist that provides an instant surge of hydration to help plump up the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid to rehydrate, and a blend of black oat, provitamin A, and linoleic acid to soothe and calm, and add moisture to the skin before you apply serum or makeup. My dry and sensitive skin just loves this – it gives an instant boost of hydration leaving my skin feeling happy and plump.

The Glow Mist (£16.00 at M&S) gives you a dewy, luminous and smooth complexion, which works to set makeup whilst hydrating and protecting the skin. Out of the four mists I’ve been trying out, I’d definitely say this one is a must have for everyone. It contains 13 natural oils, plus propolis which has has antiseptic and antioxidant properties, and aloe vera and fruit extracts which help to hydrate, protect and nourish the skin, all together leaving you with a radiant, healthy looking glow.

And lastly the Makeup Fixing Mist (£16.00 at M&S) – as you would expect, this mist prolongs your makeup and prevents it from sliding down your face as well as melting and settling into fine lines. It contains rose water and green tea to hydrate, protect and balance skin, giving you a fresh looking complexion with a soft-focus finish. You can also spray this directly onto your makeup brushes before applying product, to help your makeup last longer still.

I’m actually really struggling to tell you which is my favourite out of these mists. I love the Vitamin Mist to ‘wake up’ my skin in the morning, I love the Hydrating Milky Mist and Glow mist equally for an instant hit of hydration, whilst leaving my skin feeling rejuvenated, and the Makeup Setting Mist does exactly what you’d expect. So I think there really is something for everyone here!

Have you tried any Pixi Mists? I’d love to hear what your favourite is!

Lifestyle & Beauty: Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Posted on March 21, 2017

Hi Guys!

I’m not sure how on earth it’s almost Mother’s Day already – didn’t Christmas just happen? Anyway, Mother’s Day is right around the corner so I thought I’d gather together a few lovely gift ideas to hopefully give you some inspiration. I’ve tried to include a bit of everything here to cover a range of budgets – Enjoy!

Starting off with some beautiful rose gold jewellery from Ted baker – the Ted Baker Ceanna Cuff Bracelet & Edda Bow Necklace (£17.50 each at Amara) are such good bargains, I had to include them. They’re both half price at the moment (£17.50 rather than £35.00 each) which really is a fantastic bargain.

The Ceanna Gem Frame Cuff Bracelet is made from brass with rose gold coloured plating, it features a gem frame design and is enhanced with Swarovski crystal embellishments. And the Edda Bow Necklace also has a rose gold finish, with a super cute baby pink bow pendant.

I also had to include the lovely Ted Baker Hat Box Gift Set (£18.00 at Boots) – This decorative hat box contains a 200ml refreshing body wash, a large 250ml shimmering body soufflé and a mini bath scrunchie. The box is also very pretty and would be great to keep or to use for future gifting.

Next I have this super sweet Cupcake Kit (£24.99 at Amara) – this handy kit contains everything you need to bake and decorate 8 cupcakes. Inside the box is a pastry bag, 7 pastry tips, 1 pastry clip, 8 re-usable silicone cupcake cups and 1 recipe booklet, featuring step-by-step instructions for using the pastry bag and creating delicious cupcakes. I’m looking forward to trying this set out with my son very soon! 🙂

The Swash London Floral Meadow Notebook (£12.50 at Amara) is another half price find in the Amara sale. This fun and colourful notebook has plain pages and a hardback cover, finished with a hot pink elasticated bank closure and a matching ribbon marker.

Clarins have also recently brought out some lovely products which would make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts. The Clarins Tender Moments Collection is a mini collection of products in cute, limited edition packaging.

The Skin Illusion Blush (£16.00 at House of Fraser) is a handy little product that’s perfect to give cheeks a pop of colour. I love the compact style of the packaging, and Clarins has also incorporated a mirror onto the lid which is a really nice touch. The formula contains active plant ingredients which offer added comfort and radiance on application, and I love that the product is super easy to apply with the integrated sponge.

And the Daily Energizer Lovely Lip Balm (£16.00 at House of Fraser) – rather than just a bog standard lip balm, this nifty little product contains an ‘intelligent pigment’ which reacts with the lips’ pH to develop a personalised natural pink shade. The balm also promises to repair and nourish whilst the peachy fragrance smells good enough to eat.

For Mum’s that like a brew, the Silken Pyramids Selection Box Set (£22.00 at Newby Teas) is the perfect set for branching out into new tea flavours. This luxury selection box is filled with silken pyramids which have been individually wrapped for freshness. There are four beautifully-aromatic infusions to choose from, including:  Jasmine Princess, Strawberry & Mango, Hunan Green and Rooibos Orange.

For mums in need of a pamper (hands up!) the La Source Collection (from £6.00 at Crabtree & Evelyn) is definitely worth checking out.

The La Source collection draws inspiration from the restorative powers of the sea, and is carefully designed to restore, condition and rejuvenate the skin from head to toe. Formulated with a blend of ingredients such as underwater algae, mineral salts and seaweeds the products in this collection allow you to escape everyday life and immerse yourself in spa-like rituals.

Of the above products so far I’ve tried the beautiful La Source EDT fragrance, and the Refreshing Body Mist. They both smell wonderfully light and refreshing, and I think any mums in need of some me-time would love to receive these this Mother’s Day.

I’m pretty sure I can’t plan a gift guide without including a candle! This Cat Candle (£45.00 from Lush Designs) is just so unusual and striking, I think cat lovers and candle fans would both love it. The candle itself is available in a either lavender or rosemary & watermelon scents, and it’s housed in a wonderful bone china container, decorated with cats and embellished with pure gold lustre.

For fans of skincare, the Foreo Luna 2 (£169.00 at Foreo) would make a fantastic gift. It is expensive, but in my opinion it’s worth the splurge when you consider how much use you’d get out of it.

The LUNA 2 is an enhanced T-Sonic face brush and anti-aging system that gives you a completely personalized cleansing, and it’s now available with four specialized brush types for a tailor-made skin care experience. I won’t go into too much detail here, but please check out my previous review if you’d like to hear more about the Foreo Luna 2.

Another one of my favourite brands for gifting is Molton Brown, and their new Exquisite Vanilla & Violet Flower Shower Gel & Lotion Gift Set (£45.00 at Molton Brown) really would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. This limited edition bath and body set blends notes of creamy vanilla over delicate floral scents of violet flower and orris, to create a stunning fragrance. The set is presented with a grosgrain bow and violet-hued metallic caps in an exquisite limited edition Mother’s Day gift box.

For a budget option, this Exquisite Choices Gift Set (£12.95 at Pretty Little Treats) is just so girly and pretty. The handcrafted set contains four pampering treats: a mini pot of hand cream, a lip balm, a bath treat, and a matchbox solid perfume bar. The products are all beautifully packaged, and presented in a luxury box which is perfect for gifting.

On to fragrance now, DKNY Be Tempted Eau So Blush (£50.00 for 50ml at House of Fraser) is a wonderfully fresh and sparkling fragrance that’s perfect for Spring. Be Tempted Eau So Blush opens with an invigorating blend of Pink Grapefruit infused with juicy Blood Orange and succulent Red Currant, whetting the appetite with mouthwatering notes. With a playful allure, Pink Peony, sensual Jasmine and Cedar Wood at the heart lead to a base of rich Creamy Woods, Apricot and Musk.

  • Top Notes: Pink Grapefruit, Blood Orange, Magnolia and Red Currant.
  • Heart Notes: Peony, Jasmine and Cedarwood.
  • Base Notes: Creamy Woods, Apricot and Musk.

I’ve also included Estee Lauder Modern Muse Nuit EDP (£70.00 at House of Fraser)- this floral woody oriental scent blends sophisticated floral tones with creamy woods to create a beautiful contrasting accord that is lushly vibrant yet luxuriously warm. More of an evening fragrance than the original Modern Muse, this scent is opulent, glamorous and sensual.

  • Top Notes: Mandarin and Bourgeon de Cassis.
  • Heart Notes: Chamomile, Jasmine Absolute, Jasmine Sambac China and Heliotrope.
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood, Clearwood, Tonka Beans, Madagascar Vanilla, Musks and Amber.

And I had to include this Elie Saab Le Parfum Gift Set (£49.30 at Escentual) – I’m a massive fan of Elie Saab fragrances so I think this Le Parfum gift set would make a wonderful present for Mother’s Day. If you’re not familiar with the scent, Le Parfum is a beautiful, voluptuous and feminine fragrance. It opens with a radiant Orange Blossom, leading to a heart of elegant Jasmine Absolute, combining with a pure, modern Patchouli. The base note unfolds into a Cedar Woody Accord adding character and a lingering trail, while the Honey Rose envelops the composition in a beautifully addictive note.

The gift set includes: Le Parfum EDP 50ml, Le Parfum Scented Body Lotion 50ml, and an Elie Saab Red Clutch Bag.

  • Top Notes: Orange Blossom.
  • Heart Notes: Jasmine Absolute and Patchouli.
  • Base Notes: Clear Woods and Honey Rose.

And lastly, I also wanted to show you this stunning fragrance from Vince Camuto: Fiori (£55.00 at Debenhams). I just love Vince Camuto bottles, they’s so striking and would look just wonderful displayed on a dressing table. Fiori (meaning Flowers in Italian) is a fresh, light and  uplifting fragrance featuring top notes of luscious Pink Grapefruit and ripened White Nectarine, a heart of sheer Iris and dewy Freesia, leading to a base of rich Sandalwood and creamy Blonde Cedarwood.

  • Top Notes: Pink Grapefruit and white Nectarine
  • Heart Notes: Iris and Freesia.
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood and Blonde Cedarwood.

I’m sorry this ended up being such a ling post – well done if you made it this far! I hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day whatever you do, and I hope you enjoyed my gift guide xxx

A Girl’s Night In With Ideal World TV #IdealGirlsNightIn

Posted on March 9, 2017

Hi Guys!

Apologies for not being around much recently, both on my blog and social. Things have been super hectic at home – I’m now back and can’t wait to post regularly and share with you what’s been going on at TSNC HQ!

One of the first things that I have coming up is a really exciting Girl’s Night In tomorrow night! Ideal World TV are hosting a Girl’s Night In – and they want you to join in! Filled with beauty and fashion favourites, they will be hosting some fantastic shows with even better savings. They will also be hosting a Twitter Chat between 7:30pm and 8:30pm, with a Girl’s Night In theme – I’m really looking forward to taking part.

Ideal World TV have kindly sent over an amazing goody bag of treats to kit me out for the perfect Girl’s Night In on Friday. They’ve included some of their favourite products from the night, as well as a few lovely extras. Let’s take a look and see what’s inside –

Firstly there’s a fab GelTouch Starter Kit (£39.99) and Trio Nail Polish Set (£17.99) – these will be available on Friday evening, and what’s special about this kit is it includes a professional gel to coat which promises to transfer any nail polish into a gel, in only 60 seconds. The Starter Kit contains everything you need to get going with at-home gel nails, and includes a powerful GelTouch 9W LED lamp, Clear Top Coat and Gel Cleansing Wipes. I’m loving the look of the bright pink nail polish, I think I’ll be trying this out on Friday!

Next we have the Twirl Curl (£12.99) – this is the perfect tool to help create an array of different hair styles. You can use it to help with your messy bun, pony loop, 50’s retro style, wrap, French pleat and many more. It’s also worth mentioning that you won’t need any tight bobbles, pins or grips when you use this, and it won’t rip or damage your hair like regular bands. I’m not the best at hair styling so I’ll be interested to find out how easy this is to use on Friday night.

And lastly the Zhuzh! Tan Accelerator (200ml £15.99) – rather than a fake tan, this is actually a tan enhancer, for when you already have a natural tan. This product stimulates your skin’s natural melanin levels whenever you’re exposed to the sun, and speeds up the natural tanning time. I’m not tanned even the slightest at the moment, but I’ll definitely be using this when the weather gets better.

Ideal World TV have also been very thoughtful and included some lovely extra goodies in the bag so I can really make the most of the Girl’s Night In. There’s some super snuggly Joules socks (is it bad that I’m more excited about these than the chocolate?) There’s also some fancy Tyrrell’s popcorn, Galaxy Minstrels, a cute pink mason jar glass and a button shaped coaster.

I’d love it if you could join me tomorrow night for Ideal World TV’s Girl’s Night In – just tune in to Ideal World TV on any of the following platforms: Sky 654, Freeview 22, Virgin 747, Freesat 812 or via live stream at www. idealworld.tv. Then hop over to Twitter for 7.30pm and follow hashtag #IdealGirlsNightIn. Hope to see you there!
