THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY.

You know those morning when you wake up and even though nothing has even had a chance to happen, you just feel like utter crap? It happens to us all and here’s what I do on those days: FIGURE OUT IF THERE IS A REASON FOR FEELING THAT WAY Did you have an argument with…

MY UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE.

With September and the beginning of a new academic year fast approaching I thought I’d share my honest university experience with you all. Before I start, I’d like to warn you all that it wasn’t a particularly good one and to insert a trigger warning. This post talks about depression and self-harm so if you’re sensitive…

ALL OF MY NON BEAUTY/FASHION POSTS SO FAR.

Since I have decided to move away from beauty being the main focus of this blog, I thought that I would make a post containing links to all of my non beauty related posts to date – including those that have been posted since I made that decision. If you haven’t seen that post yet,…

A NEW DIRECTION.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have seen that I’ve been feeling really disheartened about my blog – again! Any time I post something that isn’t beauty related, it never does very well. And I know, I know… blogging isn’t about numbers but the non-beauty posts are some of my favourites to write as…

BATISTE VS. AUSSIE 

For as long as I’ve been using dry shampoo, Batiste has been my go-to brand – mainly because it is the most accessible to me. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I prefer it over other brands or that it works wonders for me. In all honestly, the only other brands I’ve tried are the own…

PIERCINGS & TATTOOS I USED TO WANT.

Back in June, I saw Amanda Jayne’s post about tattoos that she used to want and instantly I was like “why haven’t I thought to do a post like that yet?” so… here it is! ___ I’ve always been a lover of piercings and tattoos. Whenever I saw somebody who was heavily pierced/tattooed when I…

BIORÉ PORE STRIPS.

Back in March, I reviewed the Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and I’ve used it every/every other day since that post even though there is one thing that I’ve noticed that really bugs me – the pores on my nose are still really blocked even though it claims to be a deep pore cleanser. So since I’ve…

JULY BLOG POSTS.

Hey everyone! You might know that this was my first month back after my blogging break and I hope you can tell that I’ve been trying to make more of an effort with my posts – especially in terms of photography! So, here are this month’s posts in case you missed any: A LOOK FROM…

A LOOK FROM MY TEENS.

Rather than creating a look on the spot or drawing inspiration from Instagrammers/Youtubers like I usually do, today I’m using my younger self as inspiration. I tend not to wear a lot of colour when it comes to makeup. I’m not the best at choosing shades that compliment each other despite trying my best to…

RIMMEL STAY BLUSHED.

I got the Rimmel Stay Blushed blush about a year ago and I think I’ve only ever used it once in that time. So, when I decided to try cream contour (see here), I thought I’d give this blush another chance since they’re in the same sort of category. I have this blush in the…

ES CANA, IBIZA.

Whilst we were away in Lanzarote in April, Joe and I said how much we loved being away and seeing our daughter so happy and we both agreed that we’d like to go on holiday again at some point this year. As soon as we got home, I think Joe was instantly suffering from the…

GOLD & KHAKI.

If you recently saw my Makeup Obsession Cream Contour post, then you’d have read about the issue that I had with a NYX palette that I’d ordered frrom Boots and that luckily, I thought I might already own either the exact shades or some that were very similar and it turns out that I do! So, this look…
