Random Lifestyle Haul

First off, I'd like to preface this post by apologising for the absence of a post yesterday. I generally post on Mondays rather than Tuesdays, however, yesterday I had still yet to take a header image, and by the time I got round to it it was dark! Moving on, you know that meme that's like, "when you get paid and you start buying random shit"? I am literally the epitome of that meme.

Revlon Photo Ready Eye Art | Review & Swatches

These are currently only available in drugstores in America, but you can get them in the UK on Amazon. I bought them because they're very similar to the more expensive Touch-in-Sol Metallist Liquid Foil & Glitter Eyeshadow Duo, and I was intrigued as to whether they're a good dupe or not. I got them before Christmas so it's fair to say I've given them a fair trial!

Bobbi Brown Haul

I have a real soft spot for make up companies that are founded by an actual make up artist, who also actually own the company or at least has artistic direction. They know what actually works, rather than what sells best. Thus, I am in love with Bobbi Brown cosmetics.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection | My Picks

I think it's fair enough to say that the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection has to be one of the most - if not the most - coveted collection to land in the UK from the states this year. I want to say straight off the bat that the lip oils didn't interest me at all! I'm not a glossy lip girl at heart and none of the colours were calling to me, so I gave them a miss. The highlighting palette, eyeshadow palette and blush, however, is another story.

The time has finally come when Charlotte Tilb' has introduced her iconic, cult classic lip liner Pillow Talk in lipstick form. Are you excited? I'm excited. 

Saturday, 21 January 2017


January marks a year that I've been blogging; January 3rd to be exact. I wanted to do something special to celebrate and I thought a giveaway would be a great way to do it!  I've stuffed a Charlotte Tilbury make up bag with beauty goodies, including from Bobbi Brown, Nars and Mac. I've been so excited for this!

My Essential Brush Kit

If, when I was getting into make up, somebody had written down a list of make up brushes they considered essential in a basic kit, I would have found it very helpful.

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Picks | REVIEW

My skin is prone to dryness so I'm always on the hunt for products that claim to hydrate. I won Burt's Bees Intense Hydration set a while back now, so I've had plenty of time to formulate an opinion of the line!

Nars Soft Touch Eyeshadow Pencil | Review & Swatches

My posting schedule is weekends and Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but I didn't post over the weekend because I had a Uni assignment due in on the Monday I was working on! Hence why I'm posting on a Tuesday! Anyways: I adore Nars cosmetics. I have so much Nars in my beauty stash, including a bunch of their soft touch eyeshadow pencils.

MAC Lipstick Collection

MAC lipsticks don't need an introduction, their reputation speaks for them. So this isn't a review this time, but, as I mentioned recently when I showed you my Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick collection, I really enjoy see other peoples collections so I can add a bunch to my wish list!

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick Collection | Review & Swatches

Everybody - at least everybody remotely interested in beauty (or a scene queen phase pre-2010) - knows who Jeffree Star is. He's kind of hard to miss. I think because of his big personality a lot of people are put off his cosmetics line, but I personally am a huge fan of his liquid lipsticks. I really enjoy reading other peoples posts on their collections on certain products. I love to look at swatches so I can add a tonne to my wish list! Anyway - here's mine.

Product Empties

Hi all! Is it just me or do you find that when you run out of products, you, a) run out of them all at once, and b) when you're broke? I've run out of a bunch of products all within a couple of weeks of each other!

Best of Beauty 2016

This post is a few days late, but because of my car accident I'm a little behind! Anyway, before blogging, I was an avid watcher of Youtube 'Beauty Gurus' and I would always eagerly anticipate they're 'best of beauty' breakdowns for an entire year. I would literally get myself a notepad and write down what I wanted to put on my wish list. Fast forward a few years, and I'm a blogger myself. So why not join in on the fun?

Film v Digital Photography

I am a photographer, and, although 99% of images I take for blogging purposes, personal images and 'photo shoots' are all shot using film. Film is an outdated method, I know, so I thought I'd give some reasoning as to why I am so in love with it.

3INA Picks | Brand Brag

I've been loving 3INA for a while now. The only problem was that, up until recently, it was very difficult to get hold of. Their website didn't have a shop, and the most local store was in Covent Garden in London, an hours (and very costly) train journey away. Because it's tricky to buy, I initially didn't want to post solely about the brand.

December Favourites

A couple of days late, I apologise! Here's my round up of the products I was loving in December.

2017 New Years Resolutions

Phrases like "New year, same me" or, "sick of 'new year, new me' bullshit" circulate around the internet around this time. I am actually a believer in New Years resolutions. I think having a goal is really helpful. Over the Christmas period, everybody's had time off, a time to refresh and reflect, so I think the New Year is a good time to start over.

What I Got For Christmas

I hope everybody had a fabulous Christmas and got everything they asked for! I am incredibly lucky and I got so much this year, and I am excited about every single thing so I've been itching to share this post!
