5 Reasons Why I Have a Love/ Hate Relationship With Social Media...


Today's post is a different one for me, and one I have been meaning to write for a while now. Social media has invaded our lives over the past 10 years, and is now something that consumes us, and to an extent, we can't (or at least think we can't) live without. As a blogger, I use social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter daily, to amongst other things, help direct traffic to my blog, and although I do enjoy having a little scroll/ stalk at others pages, it does sometimes drive me mad. Today I thought I would have a little rant/ ramble about my biggest bugbears are when it comes to life online.

My Makeup Bag Essentials


I'll admit it, I can be very fickle when it comes to my makeup bag. Like most beauty bloggers (and most women in general), I probably spend far too much of my money on makeup, whether it be a new lipstick shade, a gorgeous new palette (after all, who can resist a palette?) or just the latest cult product that keeps popping up on Instagram. Despite that, there are certain products that seem to have a permanent residence in my makeup bag, and today's post is all about these, and why I love them so much.

Beauty | Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick & Perfume Review


Now I have to start this post with a disclaimer, and a shocking one at that. The products I am featuring it today's post are the first Charlotte Tilbury ones I have ever owned. Yes, I know, for a beauty blogger this absolutely unbelievable, but as much as I have a CT wish list as long as my arm, I have never got round to buying any of her products and I am ashamed to admit it. Somehow, I have managed to resist the beautiful packaging, and much hyped products up until now, but now I am officially in the club and own Nude Kate from the Hot Lips lipstick collection, and Scent of a Dream, which is quite possibly the dreamiest (excuse the pun) fragrance EVER.

The February Beauty Edit



Thank goodness it's February. Despite January being my birthday month, it is, without doubt, the toughest month of the year and I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'm always glad to see the back of it! I’ve never understood why people start diets and resolutions in January, as getting back into routine after Christmas and New Year is a chore in itself in my eyes. With the worst month of the year behind us, and Valentine's Day just around the corner, today's post contains all the things that will get you looking and feeling amazing ahead of February 14th, whether you have a hot date, are out with the girls, or even just having a night in and a bit of a pamper.

Skincare | Herbalife Skin Review


In my ongoing quest for perfect skin, over the past 6 weeks I've been using some products from Herbalife SKIN*- a brand that promises fast results for younger, more beautiful skin. Sounds too good to be true, right? I was lucky enough to try the brands polishing citrus cleanser, firming eye gel, daily glow moisturiser and replenishing night cream, and today's post is a little round up of my thoughts on the products.

Beauty | December Favourites


I can't believe it's 2017! Breaking all the blogging rules, my first post of the year is not about my goals/ resolutions for the next 12 months, but instead is all about the products I've been loving over the past few weeks. Surprisingly, I'm not featuring any makeup this month, but do have an amazing new skincare product to tell you about, as well as some lovely other things that have made me happy throughout my favourite month of the year, December.

Makeup | The Concealer Edit


Concealers. A real makeup bag essential and a 'holy grail' product. Whether is spots, discolouration or darkness, concealer has it covered, so to speak. I've dabbled in a lot of different concealers over the years (what can I say- I was a spotty teenager)- from high street to high end- and I think I can now officially say I have favourites. With that in mind, today's post is all about my top concealer picks, what they are best for, and why I love them.
