Jewellery is something I either … Continue reading Daily Favourites |Shopping Justification

Daily Favourites | Pucker up sweet cheeks

Do you ever wake up, and make up is the last thing your skin wants to wear on your face? Where your skin is just saying – let’s be natural today please? As mentioned a few times now, I’m not the biggest foundation wearer, unless it’s on a night out or something special (and even then it’s more of a concealer/highlighter). I do however, enjoy … Continue reading Daily Favourites | Pucker up sweet cheeks

Lifestyle | How to motivate yourself on “off” days

For me, I feel like there is so much pressure nowadays to be constantly positive. Have you ever woken up and just thought – BLAAAAAHHHHHH!? Let’s be honest – we all have ‘off’ days. The days where all we want to do is sit in bed and binge-watch our favourite cheesy shows or spend the day with friends and do anything that avoids us thinking about the … Continue reading Lifestyle | How to motivate yourself on “off” days

Joined by my favourite Chanel lipstick.   Shoes … Continue reading Daily Favourites | Follow The Yellow Brick Road

Daily Favourites | Wild Bluebells

This I’ll admit, is a recent purchase; one I fell in love with from the second I smelt it. I was looking for an every day scent, as I tend to wear brands like Chanel and Victor Rolf and just wanted something a little different. For me personally, it’s an elegant one, and makes me smile with the thoughts of spring – without sounding too … Continue reading Daily Favourites | Wild Bluebells

Lifestyle | You like me? Good! You don’t like me? Ehh..too bad!

It’s been a couple of months since life got tipped a little upside down which left me feeling kinda sad about myself. I started taking comments and messages on social media ways they were never actually intended, I tried extra hard to be what I thought others wanted me to be, and hearing that someone you thought was awesome, just flat out doesn’t like you…Well, it … Continue reading Lifestyle | You like me?

New makeup in July: The bits I liked

Foundation – Clinique’s, Even Better Clinique Even Better Foundation has an SPF15 and is an oil free formula, so it won’t clog your pores and it does protect you a little against harmful sun rays. The coverage is moderate to full but I found it to fall in the moderate category unless built up (using brush etc). For me, it feels fairly light and covers without masking. … Continue reading New makeup in July: The bits I liked

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring 5 products with you

Anytime I’ve heard a question like this, it’s been in an interview or the infamous team building exercises work always gets you to do as an ice breaker. Whilst writing my review of the Aveeno Review, I lightly spoke about the product working in warm climates which got me thinking… what else would I keep with me if I was stranded? I also can’t pack … Continue reading If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring 5 products with you
