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 […]

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 […]

WHY I DON’T WANT KIDS

WHY I DON’T WANT KIDS

Let me start the post by saying this: I don’t think anyone should have to justify why they don’t want children. It should just be a normal preference like wanting salt on your chips is. Some people want to have children and some don’t – […]

SPRING FEELINGS

HOW I FEEL ABOUT TURNING 24

HOW I FEEL ABOUT TURNING 24

It was my birthday on November 7th, and I turned twenty-four. This year was a notable change in my feelings towards being another year older. Twenty-three was fine. Twenty-two was good. Twenty-one was great. Twenty-four, however, was bad. For some reason, the thought of being […]

PROM EXPERIENCE, TIPS & MAKEUP LOOK

PROM EXPERIENCE, TIPS & MAKEUP LOOK

Prom is a major event in many young people’s lives and is the culmination of all the hard work you did in high school. I had mine in 2011, which was seven(!!) years ago, when I was 16. I remember girls in my year planning […]

WHAT I REALISTICALLY EAT IN A WEEK

WHAT I REALISTICALLY EAT IN A WEEK

I love What I Eat in a Week/Day videos and blog posts, because it gives me meal ideas and I find it interesting delving into people’s diets. However, I have to remind myself that the internet is a funny place and a lot of these […]

WHAT I’VE LEARNT FROM 3 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

WHAT I’VE LEARNT FROM 3 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

It’s my 3rd wedding anniversary just around the corner (it’s February 27th, by the way), so I feel like I’ve been married long enough to be just about out of the honeymoon period, but not long enough that I want to throttle my husband for […]
