NEW Cover FX Power Play Foundation REVIEW

I have been a long time fan of Cover FX's Custom Cover Drops and their Cover Click, so when I saw they were launching a new complexion product - Power Play Foundation* - I knew I had to try it.

Miracle Product: Aquis Hair Towel

This is the first post in a new series on the blog called Miracle Product. In these posts, I will be singling out a particular product which has instantly and dramatically improved my life in some way. Without further ado, let's chat about a towel.

What the fuck is a toxic friend anyway?

A phrase that seems to have grown popular lately that doesn't really sit well with me is "toxic friend". Whilst my reaction is scratching my head in confusion, it seems to resonate with a lot of people, but I personally think it's a harmful and counterproductive way of dealing with friendships that have turned sour.

NEW Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter Review

I'm finally back with another post! I've had so much planned, even around uni work, but then a nasty  chest infection got in the way. Moving swiftly on, today I'm talking about the new Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

NEW #PixiPretties Collaboration Collection

Pixi have recently collaborated with three content creators to bring out a collection of stunning products. There's enough here to keep you glowing and blushing from dawn to dusk!

Green Beauty Haul

We're all becoming a lot more conscious of our environment and the way our lifestyle impacts upon it lately, aren't we? When I'm shopping for beauty products, it's definitely a bonus if a product is vegan, cruelty free, zero waste or made from recycled materials, etc.

Ultimate Homeware & Accessories Wish List

So this little homeware and accessories wish list that I've put together is like every bloggers wet dream: blush pink, gold, acrylic storage? GIMME!

March Favourites

It is I, back for another monthly favourites! March seems to have come and gone so quick, especially because I was barely at uni because of the strikes, and now April is full steam ahead with deadlines!

Product Empties February - March

I have so many beauty products that it's difficult for me to use that many up to the very last drop. The true test of how much I enjoy something is if I'm able to do that - because it has so much competition!

Support an Independent Beauty Brand

Let's talk about two of my passions: supporting independent businesses, and beauty.

Good Beauty Habits to Get Into

I'm all about the extra steps in a beauty routine. I'm really not a slap dash, get-up-and-go kind of gal. I'm more than happy to spend time on my beauty routine, in fact, I enjoy it - having a routine is therapeutic.   Here's some of the beauty habits I've gotten into that are small changes to my daily life, but have quite a big impact.

Same eye make up, two eye colours

I love make up; I love playing with colour - I really do! I love to create different looks with eyeshadow, blush and a bit of lipstick. But, for a bit of change of pace, I've collaborated with Feel Good Contacts to try changing my eye colour.

Lashes, Liner & Brows | Picks from Eyeko

If I had to sum up the brand Eyeko in three words, I'd say: stylish, trustworthy, expert. Eyeko makes specifically eye make up (hence the name), from their eyeshadow sticks to their range of six mascaras

Photo Shoot: Bridge

This shoot was a little out of my comfort zone. I mean, as someone who usually creates portraits with an airy, ultra feminine vintage vibe, underneath a motorway bridge doesn't really sound like somewhere you're likely to find me taking photographs, does it?

Becca Cosmetics Haul & First Impressions

Well, the beauty bargain hunter has struck again! I managed to save some £££ on this Becca haul, by shopping Space NK with £15 off a £60 spend, and then landing an incredibly good value set on QVC.

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick Collection + Giveaway

I am a big fan of liquid lipsticks, and by now I've tried a tonne of them. Hands down, my all time favourites are the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks - so I thought we'd take a look at my collection!

NEW Laura Geller Illuminator Duos | Review

Highlighter lovers haven't been short of glow options the past couple of years, but these new High Def Illuminator Duos* from Laura Geller are definitely something to get excited about!

Photo Shoot: Snowy Tuesday

A couple of weeks ago, the UK experienced an unusually cold spell and quite a heavy snowfall - which we haven't seen in several years. It was a winter wonderland all week, and one day (it was a Tuesday, how did you know?) my friend Bobbi and I braved the snow to take some photographs.

Luxury Beauty Launches To Look Out For | Spring 2018

Part and parcel of being a make up junkie extraordinaire is that you're constantly scrolling through the 'new in beauty' section and practically dribbling. Here's some new launches that I am especially excited about.

My Rodial Skincare Favourites

Recently, I've been using a lot of Rodial in my routine. I first became interested in the brand when I saw a couple of products at a bargain price (which you can find out more about here) and have been pretty much, well, hooked.

Nars Spring 2018 Collection | My Picks & Review

I love Nars. Have I mentioned that before? (*wink*) I dug into my purse as soon as I saw the launch of their Spring 2018 collection, I didn't buy everything but there was some things I couldn't not have!

Saturday, 3 March 2018

Winter Skin Favourites

I wasn't going to write this as I thought it'd be too late in the year, what with it being March and all. But given the ridiculous weather we've had over the past few days, "the beast from the East" - I thought I'd go ahead and get typing.

February Favourites

I know its very cliche to say this at this point, but when January seemed to last about 9 weeks, February seems to have been like 7 days! I literally just yesterday said to my boyfriend that I thought it was the 19th.

Eyeshadow Sticks | A Look In My Stash

Eyeshadow sticks are staples in my collection, hence why I have so many! I've gone through all of them to show you my stash, because I really am a huge fan of the stick form eyeshadow and I think everyone needs one or two!

New Make Up Launches Anti-Haul

I'm not typically one for an anti-haul, mainly because I'm usually that person that is first in line to buy the new launches. However, recently it just feels like there's been so many new launches even I can't keep up!

Monday, 19 February 2018

NEW Tarte Shape Tape Foundations Review

Following the crazy success of their Shape Tape concealer, Tarte recently launched their Shape Tape Foundation in two formulas: matte and hydrating. I've been putting both to the test!

Can We Stop Pug Bashing? | Cat the Vet RANT

Please excuse the intermission from the typical programme of lipstick and blush to make way for this rant about something that's quite close to my heart.

Photo Shoot: Georgie in February

Georgie and I ventured out together to shoot for the first time since November, and I think it's fair to say it's long over due! (So selfish of her to be busy, isn't it?)

Why You Shouldn't Reply #Agree

I think every blogger - actually, every person with an Instagram account - has been in the situation where they've had a big brand comment on their image requesting they use it, prompting you to reply "#Agree" (or something to that effect).

Personal Post: I Was In A Car Accident | AD

I think this is the first (and probably only) personal post I've ever written on here. It makes a change from the usual programme of lipsticks and glitter, I suppose.

Too Faced Peaches & Cream | My Picks & Review

I had been waiting what felt like an age to get my make up loving mitts on the Too Faced Peaches & Cream collection. After the UK launch date (in Debenhams) came and went with no sign of it, I eventually caved at the beginning of the year and did a little Sephora haul.

January Favourites

I usually begin these monthly favourites posts about how quickly the new month seemed to come around, but I know I'm not the only person that feels January seemed to go on forever and ever

Friday, 2 February 2018


So me and my friend Alix (the beautiful girl in my last photo shoot!) have teamed up to host a Valentines Day themed giveaway! We've curated some beautiful prizes that we know you'll fall in love with, so keep reading to find out how to enter!

Photo Shoot: Bathe

Alix and I got together on Sunday to create these images. I have to start by saying a big thank you to her for modelling for these shots - I'm sure going topless in front of a camera is really nerve wracking!

Lush Haul & First Impressions

It's hard to get away from the hype and excitement surrounding Lush, so it might be hard to believe that despite this, I haven't really tried a whole lot from the brand.

Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer REVIEW

Urban Decay recently launched the counter part to their award winning All Nighter Foundation, the All Nighter Concealer: described as "a major problem solver", it's a water resistant, full coverage concealer formulated to keep your skin looking "beautifully matte"^.

TK Maxx Beauty & Lifestyle Haul

Shopping is even more fun when you know you're getting something for really good value, so of course I love a little spend up in TK Maxx. Check out my latest purchases!

YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Lipstick | Review

A recent launch from Yves Saint Laurent beauty is their new Tatouage Couture Liquid Lipsticks. I've been putting these super luxury liquid lipsticks - with a high price tag to match - to the test recently, keep reading to see what I thought!

Photo Shoot: Bobbi

This shoot is definitely evidence of spontaneous things being the best things. My friend Bobbi sent me a message suggesting we meet up to shoot after seeing my photographs of Charlotte. I didn't really have any ideas in mind but I just thought heck, why not?

Product Empties | December to January

 It's been a while since I've last rounded up what beauty products I've emptied,  so I thought it was about time I delved into my empties box and had a little recap.

NEW Benefit The Porefessional PEARL Primer

 Benefit's original Porefessional primer is one of their bestselling products, with a huge fan base, myself included. Since it launched, Porefessional has been my T-zone saviour, so imagine my joy when I saw they'd developed Porefessional a pearly sister...

Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip Review & Swatches

You may have seen my previous post all about my Pixi Lip Picks, if so, you may already have an inkling that Pixi just do lip products right.

Friday, 5 January 2018

Photo Shoot: White Sheets

This photo shoot is definitely a little different for me, but it's a concept I've been thinking about for a long time. I've always had Charlotte in mind as the model because her figure is ridiculously beautiful.
