Hello Autumn! | Autumn Giveaway

Today is the first day of Autumn, with today being the Autumn Equinox. I'm currently sitting in Starbucks drinking a PSL, very appropriate, isn't it? Autumn is my all time favourite season, I absolutely adore this time of year. To celebrate it, I thought I'd run a little Autumn themed giveaway!

Too Faced Melted Latex Review

Liquid lipsticks traditionally have a matte finish, but Too Faced has recently launched their new Melted Latex range: liquified lipsticks with a high shine finish.

The "Source: Pinterest" Mentality

I am 21, and my generation have been raised with access to practically anything and everything thanks to the internet, and there's definitely a mentality of "if it's there, it's free to use". That's not true.

My "Oh Sh*t I'm Breaking Out" Skincare Line Up

It happens to all of us. The occasional pesky spot, or even worse, a full blown breakout. Whether my skin isn't co-operating because of stress or my time of the month, here's my go-to products for when I need to combat pimples.

What I Got For My 21st Birthday

Last Friday saw my 21st birthday, and I was absolutely spoiled rotten! I couldn't wait to write a post about everything I got.

Three From Smith & Cult

You probably know this brand for their stunning and sleek nail polishes, but I'm obsessed with their make up (I mean, I don't paint my own nails, otherwise I'd definitely have to have every single one of their nail polishes!)

Keeping Hold of Summer | Giveaway

Summer is coming to a close now and I'm trying to hold onto it the best I can. I've been going through some of my favourite photographs from this Summer.

Beauty Fails | Disappointing Products

I don't think I've ever done a post like this before so I thought it was about time I did! Just a necessary disclaimer: I'm not tarring these products or brands as "bad", but one particular product didn't work for me.

Postboxed Review

With my birthday just around the corner (have you seen my birthday list?) I've been keeping my eye out online for some gift inspiration, when I came across Postboxed.

Skincare Line Up: BLUE

If you didn't catch the first instalment of this new series on my blog, you can find it here. The gist of it is that, I love skincare and I thought by grouping my products into colours it'd be a quick and easy (and photogenic) way of showcasing some of my favourite skincare products.

August Favourites

I am so pleased that September is here, it's the best month. It's my birthday on the 8th; Autumn begins on the 22nd; and, don't deny it, the countdown for Christmas lowkey starts now.

Stop bashing bloggers for "working for free"

To be honest, I really dislike writing posts about bloggers or blogging, it's just so cliche these days. But something I've been seeing a lot of recently is bloggers (bigger bloggers in particular, I'm sure you know the kind I mean) bashing bloggers for "working for free".

My Afterspa Picks & Review

I wash my face twice a day, everyday. Technically, three times a day. if I'm wearing make up or SPF, I double cleanse. So obviously, cleansing is a crucial part of my skincare routine, and I've been mixing it up a little lately with Afterspa products.

My 21st Birthday Wish List

My 21st is now less than 3 weeks away (8th September). It's come around super fast I've barely even noticed which is really out of character for me, I usually start making my list in May!

How I Do Models Make Up For a Photo Shoot

So before I even start this post, I just want to make a disclaimer that I am not a make up artist. I am purely a make up enthusiast who is also a photographer, and thought one day, "you know what's a good idea? I'm going to do my models make up".

Photo Shoot: Seasalter

Another day, another photo shoot. I recently popped out with my cousins Alice and Rosie - my models for the evening - to the beach to take some snaps.

My Eye of Horus Picks & Review

I have a small selection of Eye of Horus products in my make up stash (at the moment!) but I've been reaching for them a lot lately, so I thought it was about time I gave them their dedicated space on the blog.

Caseapp Review + GIVEAWAY

As someone who always has some kind of device on them, I like to have them look pretty. Accessorising my phone and laptop is something I really enjoy, and I recently ordered a couple of bits from Caseapp

Skincare Line Up: PINK

Welcome to the first post of my new series of skincare line ups! I am a skincare junkie (just in case you haven't already noticed) and, even though this isn't my daily skincare routine, I thought putting together a skincare 'line up' to showcase what skincare products I'm currently loving was a good idea.

Indie British Beauty Brands You Need to Know + GIVEAWAY

Something I am passionate about is shopping independent. When you shop from a big department store, that money is going towards expanding an already huge company, and probably buying a chief executive her second Ferrari. When you shop independently, you're supporting an up and coming brand, helping them to expand their research, product line, marketing, etc. Not only that, but your money is going towards putting food on someones table.

July Favourites

August is here! I know this is going to sound really bad, but I'm so excited that we're onto the last month of summer! I am so ready for Autumn; cooler air, crunchy leaves, beautiful colours, and not forgetting my birthday (September 8th).

Photo Printing with Printiki

As a photographer, I am a total print hoarder. I just cant get enough of them. I think they're so much more than a bit of paper - they're memories; they're decorations. I love them! I recently tried out the printing service from

The glitter lips trend has been sweeping the beauty world of late, and I thought it was about time I jumped on the band wagon and gave it a go! I opted to try the glitter lips sets from independent British beauty brand (because you know how I feel about #ShopIndependent) Beauty BLVD.

How I Contour & Highlight with Crown Brushes

Lately, to contour and highlight I've been using brushes almost exclusively from Crown Brush UK, so I thought I'd write a post to break down my contour and highlight routine, as well as what brushes I've been using.

My Guide To Flatlay Photos

You know what a flatlay photo is, I know what a flatlay photo is, every blogger in the entire world knows what a flatlay photo is. Are they overused? Definitely. Are they going to go away any time soon? Probably not.

Beauty Bargain Hunter:

I've always said I should be on a beauty version of Bargain Hunt. I am the self proclaimed Queen of beauty bargains. I recently came across, where you can find everything on sale on one website.

Skin Elixir Review

You probably already know that one of my biggest passions is shopping independent. As much love as I have for mainstream beauty brands, I also go out of my way to discover and (hopefully) fall in love with independent, British beauty brands. Today, I'm focusing on Skin Elixir.

NEW Nars Liquid Blushers Review & Swatches

As soon as I saw that Nars had launched new blushers, I snapped them up right away. I've been testing them out for the best part of 4 weeks now, and I'm ready to give my verdict.

Summer Beauty Must Haves

I'll admit, I'm not a fan of the heat. I'm much more of an Autumn girl. That being said, one of the few things I do love about Summer is the beauty trends. Cheeks get bronzier, skin gets dewier, and lips get more colourful. What's not to love?

Bloomtown Botanicals Face Masks Review

I love a good face mask, especially clay masks which are fantastic for giving your skin a good ol' deep clean. So when I saw these two Bloomtown Botanicals clay masks - The Clearing and The Spring - I knew I had to try them both.

Red Carpet Hair with GHD

I am a total hair styling amateur, but when I'm flicking through my glossy magazines oggling the stunning red carpet hairstyles, even I can't help but at least try and emulate one or two which catch my eye.

June Favourites

As per usual, the first post of a new month is what I've been loving the past 4 weeks. Keep reading to find out what make up, skincare and fragrances I've been obsessed with lately!

Hyperhidrosis: My Odaban Solution

I was recently approached to try out Odaban anti-perspirent*. This came as quite a surprise, because I have never publicly said that I have hyperhidrosis, the medical term for excessive sweating. I didn't even mention to the person who contacted me about trying Odaban that I had this condition.

My Biggest Haul EVER: £1000 Bobbi Brown Haul!

If you read my blog, you already know I love Bobbi Brown. I definitely feel that I've really proved my love for the brand, I've only gone and spent an entire grand on skincare and make up products!

Pai Skincare Everyday Hero Collection Review

I have been interested in Pai skincare for a long time, attracted to the brand by their passionate approach to using "good" ingredients and sensitive skin. They have a huge range of products and I was unsure where to start, so when I came across the Everyday Hero Collection, I thought it was a perfect opportunity to delve into Pai.

What I Wish I'd Known As A Newbie Blogger

With my blog now a year and a half old, do I consider myself an experienced, well established blogger? Well, no, not at all. But in the same breath, I wouldn't call myself a newbie, either. Looking back at how "my little slice of the internet" has evolved, there's a number of things I can't help but wish I could go back and tell my "newbie blogger" self.

Space NK Haul & First Impressions

If you read about "What's In My Weekend Travel Bag", you'll have known that my boyfriend and I visited Bournemouth last weekend. Whilst there, I took advantage of the fact that there was a Space NK a 10 minute walk from my hotel.

My Perfect Night In

Lately I've been swapping nights out on the town with staying indoors with my boyfriend, binge watching seasons 1 through 6 of Game of Thrones in preparation for the new season, which begins next month. We've got ourselves into a really cosy night-in routine, that I wanted to share on my blog.

Bioderma Photoderm Range Picks & Review

In Summer, it's extra important to make sure you slather on the SPF. I'm always up for delving into a new sun care range, and lately I've been testing out my picks from Bioderma's Photoderm line.

Monday, 19 June 2017


I have this basket in my bathroom that began innocently enough as a place to store skincare products that I use exclusively in the bathroom, you know, cleansers/exfoliators, masks, body care and the like. However, over time, this basket basically became a dumping ground for products I no longer use (or at least don't use consistently).

Mavala Beauty Picks & Review | + WIN A BUNDLE!

You already know Mavala for their stunning nail polishes, but did you know they also offer a huge range of nail care, as well as make up? Keep reading to find out what products I put to the test! You'll also find a chance to win a Mavala bundle worth £30 at the bottom of the post.

What's In My Weekend Travel Bag

Myself and my boyfriend have taken a little trip to Bournemouth Thursday morning 'til Saturday night (by the time this is published, we'll probably already be there!) So, technically, this is my mid-week travel bag, but "my Thursday to Saturday travel bag" just isn't as catchy, is it?

DHC Skincare & Make Up Picks

DHC is a Japanese beauty brand that has a huge range of products. I was first introduced to the brand with a sample of the cleansing oil and I was hooked.  Even looking at their website now in preparation for this post to get the exact names of products I've tried, I'm adding more stuff to my basket!

NEW Lancôme Matte Shaker Review

The two Matte Shaker liquid lipsticks I picked up were total impulse buys. Lancôme just isn't a brand I shop from often, but when I saw the beautiful line up of their new matte colours, I was sucked in instantly.

Newtons Labs Skincare Picks & Review

Sometimes, when my skin is bad, I like to go back to basics. I like to put the complex serums aside and switch my expensive skincare regime out for something more simple, with a focus on keeping my skin clean.

Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette

I bought the Becca x Chrissy Tiegen palette! This isn't a review because I haven't used it on my face yet, but it's so pretty I had to give it a post of it's own. I was hesitant initially when I saw that Becca was launching a new face palette in collaboration with Chrissy Tiegen. I'll admit, I didn't pay any attention to the pre-launch hype.
