Korean Skincare From Earth & Elixir // First Impressions

I was contacted a little while ago by the lovely Shannon from Earth & Elixr, who asked if I wanted to try out some south Korean skincare goodies. Of course, I accepted and she was very generous and sent though some lovely products for me to try. I've never actually tried any Korean skincare but I know its taken the world by storm a little bit, so I'm probably a little late to the bandwagon but better late than never.

Full Coverage Heros

I'm not always one for a full coverage look but its coming into party season and I like my base to look flawless when I'm breaking out a smokey eye. I thought I'd share my favourites for keeping my base flawless but not cakey.

Cult Beauty Haul & 2017 Goodie Bag

Sooo..  I've been doing some shopping! Not only did I get some beauty bits for my birthday, I spent too much money on Cult Beauty recently and ended up with their 2017 Goodie bag (which unfortunately is over now) so I thought why not share the mountain of beauty things I have to try out over the next little while!

The Dolce Vita // Charlotte Tilbury First Impressions

Hello! Charlotte Tilbury is one of those brands I've wanted to try for years now. I had this struggle where I just couldn't decide what to try from the brand, simply because so many of their products get so much love. I decided to just go for it and order The Dolce Vita set, which has plenty of the brands  most loved products inside a pretty makeup bag.

Pixi Beauty Haul

Hello, I'm back after what feels like forever. I started a new job at the beginning of August and I work a lot more hours that I used to, so I don't have as many days off to dedicate to my blog unfortunately. I'm still here though and I still have a crazy passion for all things beauty related, I'm probably going to reduce my posts to about once a week with the occasional extra if I can. Recently, I went on a bit of a Pixi spending spree so I'm sharing my thoughts on what I picked up!

August Beauty Favourites

I'm not sure how its September already but somehow this year has literally disappeared into thin air, either that or I'm just getting old and need to accept that time passes quickly now. I've got a bunch of favourites I've been reaching for a lot over the last little while so I thought no better time than the present to share!

New In My Beauty Stash

Even though I may have had a little break from blogging, it didn't stop me from shopping and picking up some new  beauty bits here and there. I thought I'd round up some of my purchases and share with you what I've been hauling lately.

Soul Tree Āyurvedic Kajals*

Hello again! I thought I'd share some thoughts on some kajals that I've been trying out lately! I was kindly sent them from the lovely people at Soul Tree and I've been enjoying using them a lot. I don't tend to use these kind of liners very often so its been good to mix things up in my routine lately.

Liz Earle Beauty Haul

Long time, no blog. But, I'm back, and for now I might have to cut down my blogging schedule to once a week with the occasional twice a week appearance. I started a new job at the beginning on the month and its been pretty non stop. I'm learning a lot and also have a lot to learn so any free time I've had, I've taken to myself. I miss blogging though, and I miss talking about all the products I'm using and loving! I picked up a set from Liz Earle recently and thought it was worth sharing since you can save quite a hefty chunk of money.

Empties #2

Hello everyone! I've been a bit quiet in the blog recently but I've pretty much been non stop since I got back from holiday a few weeks ago. I start a new job next week so I've been busy working my notice as well as learning to drive for my driving test which is soon too! I thought I'd share some empties today because even though I feel like I made one of these posts not too long ago, I appear to have accumulated a lot of things since then!

Summer Lip Picks

Hello! I'm back from holiday and I'm back to share some of my favourite lip products. Berlin was great fun, such a beautiful city and I'll probably write about my experience soon but to get me back into the blogging mojo I'm going to talk about what I know best - lipstick. (Also please bear with me while I catch-up on everyones post etc, I got back pretty late last night and I'm incredibly exhausted! I also have to go back to work tomorrow which will definitely be a chore after a week away haha).

Red Cherry Lashes*

Despite having a pretty decent sized makeup collection, I don't actually own too many false eyelashes. Probably because I don't really tend to wear them unless I'm doing some glam makeup for instagram or if I have a special event! Red Cherry Lashes are a cruelty free brand that I've always been intrigued by, I remember Pixiwoo using them when I first started watching!

June Beauty Favourites

I'm not really sure how we're half way through this year already but I guess its happening so before we know it, its going to be Christmas! Just a heads up too, I'm off on holiday at the weekend so I might be a little quiet in terms of keeping up with comments etc, this post is going to be scheduled and so will my next few (hopefully) so there will still be something to read. I'll be sure to share some snaps when I return too. I've been loving a few things this month, some old favourites and some new, which is always exciting.

My Mac Lipstick Collection

When I first started blogging, I was obsessed with Mac. I think most people at the time were, but over time I've come to love other brands and I don't support Mac anymore. You can read a bit about that in this post here. I thought I'd share whats left in my lipstick collection from Mac, I pretty much halved my stash of lipsticks not too long ago as I'd had some for quite some time. I used to collect Mac lipsticks, so a few of the shades here are limited edition and I haven't actually worn them in a long time. But for those of you who still love a good Mac lippie, I hope you enjoy!

My First Lime Crime Order / Velvetines Review

Hello everyone! I thought I'd share what I picked up from Lime Crime recently. nI was super excited to try this brand as they are both cruelty free and vegan. I only made a small order during their sale but I didn't want to pay for shipping to the UK for loads of things when it was my first time trying the brand.

My Dry/Dehydrated Skin Favourites

For those of you who've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know I used to have super oily skin that would breakout all the time. Now I'm in my twenties things have taken a turn, my skin is much drier, usually dehydrated, and it tends to be very sensitive and can get dry patches a lot. I still get a little oily here and there but mostly just around the sides of my nose, if I get oily at all. Not only has this meant I've had to change up my makeup game, I've also had to completely change my skincare routine so I thought I'd share whats working for me right now.

Current Makeup Bag

Hello everyone, little late to bring you this post but I feel its still relevant none the less. Its been a while since I shared whats in my makeup bag, and the products are even changing so heres a little glimpse as to what I've been using my face lately.

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit

Hello everyone!  I mentioned a little while ago in a liquid lipsticks post that I was trying these out then realised I hadn't actually reviewed them yet! I love liquid lipsticks that I had to pick these up, I've seen some pretty mixed reviews on blogs and from friends but I thought I'd share my thoughts none the less.

Empties + Mini Reviews (June 2017)

I honestly can't remember the last time that I did an empties post so I'm going to make the effort to make it a regular thing, I love reading these posts so I've started to save up the bits and pieces that I finish to share with you all. I took inspiration from Danielle who always writes the best empties posts!

Luxury Beauty Picks

From time to time we gotta treat ourselves, so I've rounded up a few favourites that I think are worth spending that little bit more on if you're looking to skip the high street and indulge a little. Hopefully theres something for everyone here as I've tried to keep a mix of hair, skin and makeup.

The Ordinary, First Impressions

Hello everyone! I decided to try out some skincare from The Ordinary as I've been seeing bloggers rave about them left, right and centre. All of the products are cruelty free and most of them are vegan too which encouraged me even more!

Easy Makeup For Spring & Summer

Now that we're in full swing of the spring-summer season, I thought it would only be right to collate some of my favourite makeup picks for this time of year. I don't like anything heavy and I don't like anything that takes a long time to apply, so if you're a fan of that kind of thing then keep reading!

Little Beauty Haul

Hello everyone! I've been super quiet on the blog lately, just because I've been so busy! I've picked up a few beauty bits over the past month or so, so I thought I'd collate them into a post so you can get a sneak preview of whats to come on the blog soon.

A Second Kitten, Introductions & Adoption

Hello everyone, little bit of a different post today - I hope you don't mind. I did a post last year when I got my little fluff ball called Baila. I mentioned not too long ago about wether you guys would like to see a post about my second kitty Odo and a few of you said yes! I want to tell you a little bit about Odo's story and how I ended up adopting her.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette

Hello everyone, today I thought I'd share some love for the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. I got this as a Christmas gift and I'm been obsessed with it ever since. Its one of those palettes I've reached for pretty much everyday since I got it, I think it houses such a versatile range of colours!

Liquid Lips That Made The Cut

Hey, hope you are all well. I'm going to star by saying thank you! I recently reached 1000 followers on Bloglovin and it feels a little bit surreal. I know blogging isn't about numbers but when I first started sharing my thoughts way back when, I never thought so many of you would want to listen up and hear my opinions. I'm planning a little giveaway soon and hoping to revamp the blog over the next few months so keep an eye out for that! Anyway, if you like liquid lipsticks - this post is for you.

March Beauty Favourites

I feel like this year has flown by, but then again I think I've said that every month of this year. I've not been blogging as regularly as I'd like but I always like to try round up my favourites if I can. This month I didn't really try anything new but I've been making a point to try and get the most out of the products that I already have in my collection.

Daily Makeup Favourites

Hello everyone, I remember doing a post last year about some of my daily makeup favs so I thought I would revisit the topic and let you know what I pile on my face the most these days. Some of the products might be the same but theres definitely a few new bits and bobs that have been added into the mix lately.

Shop My Stash (Makeup I've Forgotten About)

From time to time I like to go through my makeup collection and have a little look around. When I purchase new products I tend to forget about what I was using before, so its nice to go back and refresh my memory on the products I once loved. Its usually blushers I forget about as I tend to buy the most of these (for some reason) so that tends to be what I have to make myself rotate the most often.

A Hydrating Duo From Pixi

Hello everyone. I thought I'd talk about Pixi today, they're my favorite skincare brand of the moment and I genuinely can't seem to get enough of their products. As soon as I finish something in my current skincare stash, it usually gets replaced by something from Pixi. I also know I've been a little slow with the blog posts lately. I've been working a lot (I've switched from a part time contract to full time) and I've also adopted a rescue kitten so I'm trying to introduce her to my other cat as well as teaching her that people are not terrifying. I did a post when I got my first kitten, let me know if you would like to read about my new one and how things are going in terms of them living together. I have a weeks holiday from work soon so I plan to catch up with all my posts, emails and comments then so please bear with if you've sent me something and I'm yet to reply!

Lip Picks To Sail Into Spring

Its been little warmer here in the UK for the past few weeks and I thought it was only appropriate to start talking about my makeup picks for the spring season. It might be a little early for some considering its still February but I feel like I can maybe give you some inspiration before the season really hits us.

Too Faced Brand Focus

Hello everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start. I'm full of the cold (again) so this post isnt up as soon as I'd hoped it would be but I'm still managing to get it up none the less! Too Faced are quickly becoming one of my favourite brands, and they are also cruelty free. I thought I'd go ahead and talk about my favourites!

3 New From Mac

So if you read this post here, then you'll know about my feelings toward Mac. I am no longer purchasing products from them but I had an awful lot of empties which I used for Back2Mac for some final lipsticks before we part ways forever.


Tuesday, 7 February 2017


I must admit, I'm pretty proud of Fraser on this one. He did a lot better than I expected him to! Not so much keen on the idea of 'bulking' my eyebrows but he got the jist of it.

January Beauty Favourites

Time seems to pass ridiculously fast these days, we're already one month down for 2017 and I feel like this year is going to be a fast one. I don't know if this is because I'm getting older but I genuinely cant believe we're a month in already! I'm a little late on uploading this and I know its been a week since my last post but I was waiting for my new laptop to arrive and its finally here so I'm back to all the blogging!

My Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Collection

Hello, I think its about time I chatted about my Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I don't have the biggest collection but all the shades that I do have, I get so much use from. They have so many colours, most of mine are neutral but theres much brighter and vibrant shades if thats your kind of thing.

Cruelty Free Favrouites #2

Hey everyone! Its been a while since I talked about my favourite cruelty free brands/products so I thought I'd make an update chatting about some more bits and pieces that I've really been enjoying lately. If you didn't see my first post on cruelty free beauty then you can read that here.

Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette

Hello, its been a while since I've made a post thats just a review of something by itself. I'm all about that flatly life and love collaborating products together in a post but its time I just wrote a good, honest review! I got this palette as a gift back in November from my boyfriend (10/10 Fraser) and I've used it pretty much every day so I'm genuinely surprised that I haven't written about it properly before now.

Throwing Away All My MAC Makeup?

January is upon us and I feel the need to organise my life, along with many of the rest of you, its definitely the season for spring cleaning. I used to buy Mac makeup all the time, I was obsessed with their lipsticks and pretty much wanted to own every shade they had ever made. When I was first getting into makeup, Mac was thee brand that everyone was lusting over - but as I've grown older, so has my taste in makeup.

2017, Goals etc

I wasn't going to make this post, mainly because I thought most people had given up on new years resolutions. But, I like making goals and I like having something to work towards so I'm going to babble away about the things I want to work on and hopefully you'll get my drift.

Christmas Beauty Bits

 Hello everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Year if you were celebrating! I know I've been absent from the blog since before Christmas but I've been spending time with the family and also working a lot too which I'm sure you can all understand! I was very lucky to receive some beauty bits as gifts over the festive period so I thought I'd share some of the new things I have to play with. This is in no way intended to be bragging, I love reading these types of posts - so hopefully you do too. Also, shout out to my Mum who got pretty much everything on my wish list (I did not expect her to do that at all!), I'm very grateful and super excited to use everything.
