Rewind to 2012. I’m in my uni halls,in the process of doing my makeup for a night out with my new flatmates. My routine went as follows: foundation (no primer — yikes), concealer, loose powder, eyeshadow (I only ever wore one shade at a time– double yikes), mascara, blusher and lipstick. Ignoring the appalling cosmetic … More Makeup: Collection Cosmetics Highlight & Sculpt Contour Kit | Review
Well, what a sublime treat I have in store for you all today! It may shock you all to discover this, but I was not always the enviable, hyper-skilled makeup goddess I am now (lol). I have touched on it a few times in previous posts, for the eagle-eyed amongst you, but during my teenage … More Makeup Monday: How I Used To Do My Makeup.
So last weekend, I met up with a handful of my favourite people to celebrate ageing, which involved getting glammed up for a night out in Leeds (which is a great night out, in case you’re ever in the area!).

The … More Lifestyle: Decorating my bedroom!
As much as I enjoy a tasteful nude (ooer) when it comes to makeup, I love experimenting with colour. However, it’s a fine line to tread between bejewelled rainbow princess and gaudy clown on her day off, especially when you’re still learning like I am. For this week’s Makeup Monday I wanted a bit of … More Makeup Monday: Out of the blue.
Hi everyone! Sorry for being so distant for the past week or so. I’ve been settling into my new job and it’s been pretty full on so blogging time has been thin on the ground, I’m afraid; but I’m sure you’ll be glad to know that the job is going really well! On one of … More Lifestyle: Mini haul.
I’ve said it before on here and I’ll say it again: I am very emotionally attached to my hair. Ever since I chopping it all off into a bob at the age of thirteen and wanting to cry every time I looked in the mirror, I’ve given it the utmost care and attention (except for … More Haircare: Five tips for healthy hair, without supplements!
