Two Sobering Thoughts

The past 24 hours have been strange for me – I’ve tried two incredibly new things and I’ve learnt some incredibly valuable things to boot. They’ve made me think a little about who I am, and who I want to be, and I thought I’d share them with you all in this cosy little corner…

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…

Benefit Cosmetics Eyebrow Wax/Tint Review

I’d originally booked an eyebrow wax with my local Benefit Brow Bar because I’d felt that threading just wasn’t working anymore. It was stupidly painful with very mixed results – the same therapist would sometimes do a great job, and sometimes manage to hide my natural arch altogether. Equally, she always told me what to…

What I’ve Learnt from Daily Blogging

I’m one of those people that switches up my make-up game all the time; I’m always trying new products and new techniques, but these products aren’t going…

Dry/Problem Skincare S.O.S

I’ve struggled with bad skin all my life: on my body, my face, my scalp – you name it, I’ve got it. I’ve had skin so dry it flakes off, skin so dehydrated it splits in two at the slightest touch, as well as heinous breakouts and oily spells. I’ve been through it all. So…

Little Life Update

Ok, I’m starting to flag with this post-a-blog-once-a-day-for-seven-days malarkey. It’s 9pm on a Thursday evening and I’m absolutely exhausted after a day of traipsing round shops to research for a high-street trend review/opinion blog piece. My feet are also bloody killing me because I’m a numpty who decided to break in her 5-inch-heel silver Topshop…
