Beauty | What’s In My Makeup Bag

In all of my time blogging, I can’t believe that I’ve never done a “What’s In My Makeup Bag” post. My everyday makeup bag (featured in the photo above) is filled with those products that I consider to be the ‘essentials’, since I use them (pretty much) on a daily basis. The only cosmetics that […]

Beauty | Drugstore Make-Up Haul

Over the weekend I had a ‘new year’ replenish of make-up products, which included stocking up on some regulars, as well as picking up a few new items to try out over the coming months. I bought everything from Superdrug, which has quickly become one of my favourite stores for high-street beauty products because it […]

Beauty | Make-Up Haul & Mini Reviews

Hi everyone! I’m back – and I suppose after an almost 4 week break from blogging, I have some explaining to do! Well… I’ve just spent the last 3 weeks on a family vacation in Orlando, Florida! Whenever I’m away on holiday I like to take a complete break from technology, as I’ve discussed before it’s […]

Beauty | Maybelline’s 100th Birthday Collection (148 Summer Pink Lipstick Review)

Whilst the products and the trends have changed over the decades, the fundamental reason for buying into the beauty industry hasn’t, we […]

Motivational Monday | Remember To Look Up

I have touched upon a similar topic previously for Motivational Monday in my Beauty is Everywhere and Pleased to Meet You blog posts, explaining things in our lives that we should take the time to appreciate, including anything from a beautiful sunset, a quiet ‘me’ moment and even a complete stranger adding brightness to our day. We are all so connected but what does […]

May 2015 | Favourite Products

Another month ticked off this years calendar! The highlights of May included my brothers 30th birthday celebrations, the transition from one career path to another, 2 x long bank holiday weekends and snippets of sunshine, though I’m hoping that those snippets will become permanent throughout June. As for products that I used throughout May, these were some of […]

Beauty | FOTD: Smokey Eye & Cranberry Lip

As a nice follow on from yesterday’s blog post about gratitude and memories… I really enjoyed a lovely meal at one of my favourite restaurants, Chiquito’s, at the weekend. It’s a Mexican restaurant with a menu that’s overflowing with delicious food and a great atmosphere, which is a pretty lethal combination. Anyway, I thought that this was […]
