BLOGTOBER #10: My High-End Make-Up Collection

A completely unrelated point to this blog-post, but I’m currently working at Cheltenham Literary Festival for the week (incredibly spontaneously, only having been asked about it yesterday!) and I may have to skip a few days of Blogtober as I’m likely to be working 15hr+ shifts every day whilst I’m here. I’m trying to schedule…

BLOGTOBER #9: Daily Make-Up Routine

I remember when, less than three years ago, my entire make-up routine would take a maximum of 5 minutes. No contouring, no highlight, no brow products. Those were the days! And, actually, perhaps surprisingly, I don’t look too bad in my graduation photos, or the photos from any night out at university. Maybe there’s something…

BLOGTOBER DAY#3 – Body Shop Haul & Reviews

I’ve only just noticed how much stuff I’ve bought from the Body Shop in the past month and realised it was the perfect opportunity to write a little haul post on the blog! I’ve bought all types of products from cleansers to makeup to hand cream amongst others so this post might seem a little…

UPDATE: Favourite Make-Up Products

I came across an old version of this post from back in March when I first started this blog and I actually don’t use almost half of the products I mentioned anymore, so I figured it might be time for a re-write! Since starting this blog, I wouldn’t say I buy any more make-up than…

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…

Rash/Eczema Flare-Up Skincare Solutions

I’ve always had eczema all over my hands, but occasionally it creeps onto my face too. There I was, two nights ago minding my own business, watching Crufts, when my forehead started to itch. Then, it started weeping, and then the next day I had itchy welts all over my forehead, down the right hand…

Which is the BEST highlighter?!

My spirit animal is a magpie. Glittery, shiny things are my kryptonite. If I could, I would spend every day collecting/buying/stealing as many glittery things as I could get my hands on. It’s like a compulsion. So, it will come as a surprise to everyone, including myself, that it took me a long time to…

Clarins Skincare Review

About a month ago, I started using a bunch of Clarins products on my skin, to see what would happen. Before this, I’d mainly used cheaper products, or ones aimed solely at younger skin, as mine shows no signs of ageing at the moment (I should damn well hope so at 23!) Some of them…

All-Time Favourite Makeup Products

The response to my first ever foray into the beauty blog world (yesterday’s post) was surprisingly good, so I thought I’d follow it up with yet enough one! 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…
