BLOGGING REGRETS

I’m quickly approaching four years of blogging, and to some, this may seem like a short period of time, to me it’s felt like a lifetime. I’ve done a lot, my blog has grown a lot and I’ve changed a lot over the course of these years. There’s a lot I regret though, and there’s tonnes that I wish that I’d done sooner, so I’m going to air my laundry, and tell you about them. Read more

BLOGGING IS STILL ALIVE AND THRIVING

We see bloggers all over the place talking about: Is blogging dying? Should we all be giving up our years of hard work, and try to make it on YouTube? And to that I say, er, no. From what I can see, blogging is still alive and doing well – some of us may be stuck at a cross roads trying to figure out our happy middle (I surely am), and some of us may just be taking a step back whilst others flourish. But it’s definitely not dead, and I’m here to say why.

WHAT’S IN MY MAKEUP BAG

I’ve recently begun sorting out my makeup, throwing out and giving away what I no longer love or use, and I’ve been left with some genuine favourites, things that I do love and do use. This makes finding my every-day makeup a million times easier and I definitely felt good after I replaced my old makeup bag with a less bulky, more compact Cath Kidston one. Read more

IT’S OKAY NOT TO LOVE EVERY PART OF YOURSELF

Looking in the mirror is something we all do every day, I’d say for a substantial amount of time too. Whether it’s picking at a fresh spot, looking at your damp hair as you blow dry it, or taking a thousand selfies to post to insta, we all do it. Whilst looking in the mirror, you may notice that you’re not overly keen on your chunky thighs or your double chin is looking extra double today, and it might make you think, “I don’t really like that part of myself.” – most people would tell you to chin up (no pun intended), and to learn to love yourself as a whole. I’m telling you the opposite.

SLOWING DOWN, TAKING TIME OUT AND RELAXING

This time of year is always very difficult for me. I find myself getting into a bit of a slump – this is my own doing since I have it drilled into my head that Spring/Summer should be magical, filled with things to do every weekend and the weather should be amazing. Obviously I live in Great Britain, it’s always less than 20 degrees unless we have a “heat wave” and the city I live in isn’t exactly brimming with things to do, which can be quite hard to accept.

*BÉSAME COSMETICS

*Products in this article have been sent to me on a gifting basis

I’m really excited about makeup brands that do something with a twist. Bésame is one of those brands. With makeup inspired throughout the ages, dating back as far as the 1920’s, it was hard for me to not be interested in what they have to offer. Bésame kindly sent me out some products to review, and here is what I thought of them. Read more
