APRIL EDIT / 2019

April is a funny month. Technically, it’s mid-Spring, so the weather can be gloriously warm (around Easter we had a few days of 24 degree sunshine) but at the drop of a hat can turn sour (after the bank holiday, we had a solid week […]

EVERYDAY SPRINGTIME MAKEUP

EVERYDAY SPRINGTIME MAKEUP

I’m currently writing this as it’s grey, rainy and windy outside, so I’m not feeling in the Springtime mood whatsoever. This time a week ago it was almost reaching 25 degrees and we were having a barbecue, so it felt more like summer was just […]

TOP 5 EYESHADOW PALETTES

TOP 5 EYESHADOW PALETTES

It’s been a while since I talked about my favourite things. I’ve done this post before, twice in fact, but I was looking back at it the other day and thought they were fairly outdated. I always love chatting about palettes, so… we find ourselves […]

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

SPRING FEELINGS

A new season always brings new feelings, new thoughts and a new outlook on the year ahead. This is especially true with Spring, I feel, as there’s the hint of warmth in the air and everything feels refreshed and renewed. For me personally, this particularly […]

ABH RIVIERA PALETTE

ABH RIVIERA PALETTE

Anastasia Beverly Hills dropped their newest palette and, of course, social media went wild for it. ABH’s new releases are always exciting, but especially the Riviera palette as it had some brighter shades not usually seen in their palettes. It retails for £46 (find it […]

TAMMI X REVOLUTION TROPICAL CARNIVAL PALETTE

TAMMI X REVOLUTION TROPICAL CARNIVAL PALETTE

MakeupbyTammi is back for round two with Revolution! There’s a brand new collab palette called Tropical Carnival (see her first palette review here, by the way) and I picked it up – of course – so I could see if it was as good as […]

MARCH EDIT / 2019

MARCH EDIT / 2019

March went by so quickly; probably because I was on a break. I’ll be updating you on what I got up to in just a minute. The beginning of Spring is always a nice time for me – the April showers haven’t started and it’s […]
