A (Lack Of) Organisational Skills and an Old English Company Haul.

*Let’s start this off with a disclaimer, which is also a totally unsubtle brag about my first ever blogger mail, that all products reviewed in this blog post were provided free of charge, courtesy of Old English Company. That said, all views, as ever, are my own, and I wouldn’t have agreed to receive the…

Mini Superdrug Haul/Reviews

  About a month ago now, I bought these products (and a few more regular buys) from Superdrug and figured I’d use them for a while before writing a review. The thought process behind this was that I’d then be able to give a more detailed review. Some of these products did make it into…

What I Read In April

It should be no surprise to any of you that know me, know my job or follow my instagram (@poppyraptor) that I LOVE books. I wake up, read, go sell books all day and then come home and read until I fall asleep. And repeat. I read anything and everything, no genres omitted. I have…

24 Things I’ve Learnt Before Turning 24

1 – It’s not the tea and coffee you don’t like – it’s the milk! Black tea and black coffee ALL the way. 2 –  Eyebrows are important. You can spend hours on your make-up, but if you do nothing to your eyebrows, your face will always look unfinished. 16-22-year-old me should have learned this…

Music Monday – First In A Series?? 17/04/17

  Something that you might not know about me is that I *love* music. But not in a poncey opinionated way –  in an I-couldn’t-live-without-it kinda way. I find it absolutely impossible to walk further than a 2 minute distance by myself without listening to music. On the rare occasions when my iPod and my…

Product Reviews in <140 Characters

Happy Easter Sunday everyone! Hope you’ve eaten lots of chocolate and (hopefully) had a little bit of a rest today! Are you ready for something a bit different today? OK, so the general gist here is that I’m gonna review various things I’ve come across in the past week, BUT I can only use 140…

Maybelline Nudes Palettes Review (Blushed Nudes/Rock Nudes)

I’m not usually a ‘nude’ colour palette kinda gal. Those Urban Decay Naked palettes have never spoken to me. Aesthetically speaking, I prefer more of a cobalt blue, an emerald green or a fuchsia pink. But, bearing that in mind, the eye shadow colour I tend to wear almost every day at work, without fail,…

David Walliams BOOK REVIEW (The Boy In The Dress/Blob)

None of us can deny that there’s a hype around David Walliams at the moment. Working in a bookstore, I saw first-hand just how many copies of The Midnight Gang, his most recent book, flew off the shelves over Christmas. My friend told me yesterday that, during his internship at Harper Collins last year, he…

On Feminism. And Emma Watson.

A few weeks ago, Piers Morgan stated that feminism’s one ideology was to ‘striv(e) to be so good at what you do that your gender is irrelevant, then (to make) sure you are rewarded in the same way as a man’. This angered me, sure, but my first thought was pure shock. Does Mr. Morgan…
