HOW MY MAKEUP CHANGES AS I AGE

HOW MY MAKEUP CHANGES AS I AGE

I know, I know, I’m in my twenties. I can’t talk about ageing with any real integrity; my skin is still in the throes of youth and I’m not exactly approaching the menopause. However, I’m not talking about being of a certain age, I’m talking […]

WHO AM I?

WHO AM I?

Who am I? When I quit YouTube, I had to rediscover who I was. For so long, I had been in creator-mode, constantly thinking of video ideas, promoting my ‘brand’ and scouting new makeup releases. After leaving that behind, it felt like I had to […]

THREE MONTHS LATER: AN UPDATE

THREE MONTHS LATER: AN UPDATE

It’s been (nearly) three months since I hung up my tripod and stopped making videos for YouTube. Despite it being the biggest part of my life for nearly three years solid, I’ve quickly become acclimatised to the change in routine. I did think quitting would […]

THE LAST BLOG POST I NEED TO WRITE

THE LAST BLOG POST I NEED TO WRITE

It’s been a while since I picked up the metaphorical pen and wrote something for this blog. I have to admit, my blog is more of a ‘side thing’ for me, and was always going to be the first to take a hit if I […]

HOW IT FEELS TO FAIL

HOW IT FEELS TO FAIL

I have been a failure at things throughout my entire life. I dropped out of university (twice), didn’t manage to get a job after around 1000 applications in two years, didn’t manage to successfully learn an instrument… I could go on. There’s not many things […]

MAY EDIT / 2019

MAY EDIT / 2019

May has been a strange month for me. We went away twice, I made a huge life decision and my world collapsed around me for a while. Months like these were made to test us, and tested I really feel. I’m looking forward to a […]

ESTONIA TRAVEL DIARIES

ESTONIA TRAVEL DIARIES

I haven’t been abroad since my honeymoon, so when my husband suggested a city break to Estonia to visit a friend who moved there, I jumped at the chance. It’s no secret that money is tight for us, so instead of having to save for […]

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – MAY 2019

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – MAY 2019

18 months of unboxing the LookFantastic Beauty Box! I can’t believe I’ve been subscribed for a year and a half. I think I’ve only ever missed two unboxing posts – once in March this year, when I took some time off, and the very first […]
