SOFT METALIC GLOW (tutorial)

I’ve been very into playing around with my makeup lately, and I’ve been trying out a lot of new looks. This is one that I came up with whilst playing around one day, I think it’s very easy to achieve and only took me around 20 mins to do – follow my tutorial if you fancy trying it out! Read more

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

*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

AN UPDATED BUCKET LIST

In 2015 and 2016 I wrote a bucket list, and an updated version of that bucket list. I think the first time I was dreaming a little more, and the second time I was definitely reaching but also keeping my goals a little more sensible and achievable. I obviously don’t intend on rushing through my list though, and these are life goals, but I’ve actually managed to complete a few things off my list this time, so I’m here to update and replace the spaces I completed, with new goals.

GOOD BYE BLONDE (KINDA)

I’ve been blonde since February this year, I decided to go this very light shade because I just felt like having a change. I used to joke around a lot about being blonde to which all the boyfriends I’ve ever had have recoiled at and told me no, and all my friends have said “I don’t think you’d suit it.” When I did go blonde though I was met with a pretty positive response and a lot of my friends told me they actually preferred my hair blonde. But I got bored of it. Read more

TRUTHS ABOUT GREY HAIR

I recently had my hair toned Grey (it’s actually more purple though which I loove), for the third time, and I went out straight after to get some shopping done. When I was in one shop, the sales assistant asked me how I got to it. “I just bleached and toned it. I go blonde first and then tone it grey.” Her face said it all: Pure annoyance.  Read more

SEPTEMBER FAVOURITES

The transition from Summer to Autumn is always fun, throughout September you start to get into Autumn and introduce your Autumn routine back into your life. Warmer clothes, a different skin routine and some fun makeup looks are some “perks” of Autumn. It’s been a really long time since I wrote up a monthly favourites, I realised my routine for the most part was staying the same and I was using a lot of the same things throughout the months, so now that I’ve left it a bit I now actually have acquired quite a few “new” favourites this month.
