Eylure x Fleur De Force Brow Define Pencil Review...


I would never have thought when I was furiously plucking my eyebrows to within an inch of their life as a 14 year old, that there would come a day when I actually wanted them back. But alas, here I am, almost 18 years later pining for the full bushy brows I once I had before I took my tweezers to them.

Get fuller lips without the Needles | PMD Kiss Lip Plumping System Review


Celebrities have a lot to answer to when it comes to beauty trends. First of all Cara Delevingne persuaded us to grow out our brows, then Kylie Jenner made the world go crazy for a plumped up pout. Five years ago, I didn't know anyone that had lip fillers, now it seems to be the absolute norm and pretty much every other person has gone under the needle in the quest for bigger lips.

August's Love Me Beauty Order...


I have to admit that my life has been pretty mundane recently, and not at all Instagram worthy. Having bought a flat a couple of months ago which needed to be completely re decorated and furnished, I have been spending most of my spare time outside of work either painting, pinning like crazy on Pinterest, or trying to squeeze in the occasional blog post. Yep, gone are the holidays, crazy nights out and brunchin,’ and instead I’ve been spending every last penny on my new little home. Priorities, eh? Saying that, I’m a firm believer that you’ve got to treat yourself now and then, and the arrival of my Love Me Beauty* order definitely cheered me up and added a little excitement to my otherwise very boring month.

Beauty | Current Favourites...



It’s been quite a while since I’ve published a favourites post, mainly because I've been struggling with the whole work/ blog/ social life balance, but also because I've been curbing my spending and holding back when it comes to splurging on beauty products. Over the past month or so, however, I have had a little spend up, as well as receiving some lovely blogger deliveries, and today's post is a round up of some of my current favourites...

Makeup | 3INA Bestsellers Review & Swatches


Finding a new makeup brand that is affordable, offers a great range of products, is cruelty free and is actually worth having in your makeup bag can seem like a bit of a tall order at times. I often find that brands either tick all of the boxes apart from affordably (all of my high end loves, I’m looking at you), or if they are affordable and cruelty free, I often only like a certain brands mascara, for example, and hate everything else in the range.

Sneak Peek | The Spectrum X Mean Girls Collection...


 Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the party for Spectrum Collection’s latest launch, Spectrum x Mean girls, which will be available to buy  at the end of August. Yep, the unicorn friendly brand has teamed up with paramount pictures to create a range of brushes and brush bags inspired by the film. In true Mean girls style, the venue- Icetank in London- was decorated with all things pink, and even Regina George would have approved of the gorgeous sweet treats, foaming cocktails, photo booth, a burn book inspired graffiti wall and of course the main event- the beautiful brushes.

Beauty | Grounded Coffee Scrub, Lip Balm, Lip Scrub and Facial Toner Review



One of the things I love most about blogging is stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out new products rather than just sticking to my favourites all the time. Although I do this to primarily create great content and keep my posts varied and interesting, it does mean that along the way that I discover new favourites (as well as the very occasional horror) and sometimes fall in love with brands not only for their products, but also their stories.
