My Top 7 Beauty You Tubers

Although I am far too scared to create my own You Tube, I absolutely love watching beauty You Tubers and picking up tips. If I’m honest, makeup tutorials and surprise egg videos are pretty much all that I use You Tube for. How sad is my life? Because I’m makeup tutorial obsessed, I’ve wanted to […]

I survived and I’m happy. That deserves a celebration. Today marks the […]

Revolution X Tammi Tropical Paradise Palette

I came across You Tuber Tammi Clarke a while ago when I was looking to break out of my bronze/gold eye shadow comfort zone and try something bright and colourful.

Look Fantastic June 2018

I’m always glad to see a beauty subscription box arrive but this one really made me smile! Mostly because it contained an Elemis product and I’ve yet to find an Elemis product that I didn’t love. The problem being that they are unfortunately currently out of my price range. But yay for Look Fantastic as […]

Surprz Planner Stickers Review

My obsessions with Disney and makeup are well-known, what isn’t quite as well-known is my obsession with pretty stationery. Predictably, I love all things rose gold, pink and pretty especially planners. So imagine how excited I was when I was contacted by Surprz  to try their subscription service for personalised planner stickers.
