Empties: Part 2

I know I keep mentioning it (I can’t help it – it’s taking over my life!) but I’m moving house in less two weeks. I hate packing and can not wait for it to be over as frankly, I hate everything about moving house. It’s just a complete nightmare so I’m trying to pack the bare minimum and […]

Dear Absent Father

To paraphrase Carly Simon, you probably will think this is about you. It’s not. I won’t lie, there are elements of your mind-blowing behaviour in this letter, but it’s not just about you because unfortunately there are so many absent, non-paying fathers out there and this is for them all. Dear Absent Fathers, I should […]

My London Photoshoot Experience

I am so unlucky. I’m that unlucky that my dad, who is a whizz on the fruit machines, won’t play them when I’m stood next to him as he never, ever wins when I’m in the room. So, imagine my surprise when I was contacted by the lovely Sareta from Kiki Blah Blah to be […]

Five Favourites: May 2018

I must admit, I love a good favourites post! It must be my naturally curious (some might say nosy) nature but I find it so interesting to see the things that other beauty and lifestyle bloggers are buying and loving. Not only do their choices inspire me, I also love seeing how they use products […]

Why Your Blog Needs Pinterest

I can’t lie, Pinterest completely baffled me for such a long time. It was great for when I wanted to get inspiration for bullet journals or redecorating. I could spend hours on there pinning pretty pictures of mason jars, bullet journals or dressing tables and yet I had absolutely no idea how I could use Pinterest […]

My Spring 2018 Wish List

I wrote in my previous post that I am currently saving up as I’ll be moving house very shortly and we all know what a stressful and expensive time that can be. My lack of funds hasn’t really stopped me from indulging in a little online window shoppin and I am currently making a little […]

Why I took a break from social media

I came late to the blogging and social media game – part and parcel of being a technophobe and deeply suspicious of technology to be honest. But when I finally succumbed to curiosity, I was hooked. The introvert in me loved being able to choose when to communicate and best of all, it was from […]

Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick

You’ve got to hand it to Adam Minto and the team at Revolution Beauty they know how to launch the type products that get us all talking, at prices that we can all afford. The world went crazy for the Conceal and Define concealers at the start of the year and there was such a huge […]
