She wore Rouge Velvet…

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas, well, actually it has looked a lot like Christmas since mid-October but you get the idea. I swear the lead up to the festive season seems to begin earlier as the years go by. As I mentioned in my previous winter beauty post, around this time of year I tend to have a little reshuffle of my makeup bag. For me, this usually results in switching out nude lip shades for winterberry tones. I also tend to substitute my current foundation with  ...

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

Please forgive me for what I am about to say but… I am not the biggest fan of pumpkin spice lattes. Initially, when Starbucks first released this cult coffee, I bought into the hype and jumped right on that Autumnal bandwagon. However, to be completely honest I really don’t think they are worth the crazy hype and find them to be a little too sweet. So, with this being said, this year I thought I would try my hand at making my very own pumpkin spice inspired winter drink –  one  ...

Lets talk about Goals, baby.

As with a lot of things in life from fitness levels to career advancement, I believe that goal setting is extremely important. I really feel that it is crucial to have a plan – or at least a rough outline of what you would like to achieve and exactly how you will go about this. I am a bit of a Monica Geller, can you tell? Personally, I find that setting goals really motivates me to work that little bit harder and challenge myself. I also find that setting targets and goals can be a  ...

My Autumn Fashion Picks

If you haven’t already guessed from my abundance of autumnal themed posts, Autumn / Winter is definitely my favourite time of the year. Living in Scotland, I feel like we sort of get a bit of a bum deal when it comes to summer. Every year we buy sandals and sundresses in hopes of a few toasty days – or maybe even a week of ‘em. However, realistically those sunny days are very few and far between. Don’t get me wrong, Glasgow is my favourite place in the whole world. However, I can’t  ...

Bloggers Guilt and Silver Linings

As you may have spotted on my Instagram or Twitter, over the past few weeks I have been plagued by some sort of demon super flu. I don’t usually get colds or sickness bugs all that often but when I do they seem to come with full force. First came a few days of sickness and fever, then two weeks of sinus headaches and congestion. Three weeks on and I am finally beginning to see the light of this never-ending virus of doom (ok that is a tad dramatic). Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is  ...

Not Your Average Beauty Box – Introducing Tili

When it comes to beauty boxes, I have some mixed feelings. On one hand, I love the idea of receiving a stash of magical mystery items as it allows me to try out new products and brands. However, on the other hand,  I really enjoy having a sneak peek at the products I will be receiving (and paying for). This helps to avoid potential disappointment and eliminates the surprise of crazy wild card beauty bits like neon yellow nail polishes or multi coloured mascaras. Ain’t nobody got time  ...

Winter Lips with ColourPop Cosmetics

Now that Colour Pop are officially shipping to the UK (yayy) I thought that it was about time to place a little order and see what all the hype is about. Although international shipping is relatively new to the site, I did place a small order via a US postage company around this time last year which consisted of a few Lippie Stix, a cream highlighter and a few single eyeshadows. I was mega impressed by the overall quality of the products and so since the release of their popular liquid  ...

Back to Uni “One and Done” Beauty.

For most people out there, late nights and early rises will become the norm whilst studying at university. As a student myself, this means that I am always on the lookout for quick and easy beauty products which speed up my morning routine and ensure that I am out the door and on that 9am train. As part of my “University Life” series , I thought I would write up a little beauty post featuring my favourite “one and done” beauty bits which are my absolute saviours when  ...

Bourjois Volume Reveal Mascara

Back in the day, I was all about that Bourjois clubbing mascara /spider lashes look, however I can’t remember the last time I purchased any sort of eye product from the brand. I have so much love for their foundations and CC creams, I actually feel that they’re the best in the drugstore. However, I never seem to gravitate their counter when it comes to eye products. Recently whilst browsing the Bourjois counter in Boots, I stumbled across their new Volume Reveal Mascara and have pretty much  ...

NYX Ultimate Palette Review

I have to say, NYX have absolutely been slaying the makeup game these days.  I have fallen completely head over heels for the brand and feel that they are constantly releasing consistently great quality, on trend products – and their latest release is no exceptiion.  Over the last year I have been swooning over warm tone neutral eyeshadow palettes so naturally, when I spotted NYX’s contribution, I just about died Whilst browsing in their stand alone store in Barcelona, I  ...
