10 Beauty Products I will always Repurchase

With more products available than ever before and shiny new beauty bits being released on the daily, shopping for makeup and skincare can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Therefore, prior to purchasing,  I tend to ask for recommendations from friends and search for reviews online. I love hearing about the products that people use and love. I’m also especially intrigued by the products that they repurchase time and time again. I feel like this says a lot about a product –  ...

Advice to my Younger Self – Blogger Edition

So, as you may have read in my latest post, this month marks my 1 year Blogiversary. How crazy! It feels like yesterday that I purchased by domain and hit publish on my very first post. However, although I’ve been posting for one year, I have actually been reading blogs for a lot longer. Therefore, creating my very own has been something that I have always wanted to do, and boy am I glad I did! Over the past year, I have documented some pretty cool life events from attending my bucket  ...

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  ...

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Review

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturiser Review I don’t know about you but as I am making my way through my twenties I seem to be more and more intrigued by the world of skincare. Is this what they mean by adult-ing? Anyway, I have really enjoyed educating myself about various ingredients and trying out new lotions and potions. However, there has been one particular release which I have been particularly impressed by.  The Hydro Boost Water Gel by Neutrogena. As a combination to oily skin  ...

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  ...

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Split Review

As you may know I recently visited the U.S to do some travelling, and well, for me a trip to America is never complete without a sneaky peek in Sephora. As I am attempting to slimline my beauty drawer, prior to entering the store I had just a few products on my my wish list and at the very top was Becca’s Champagne Pop highlighter. Since the release of champagne pop and Jaclyn Hill’s collaboration line I have read so many rave reviews about the products and have been intrigued as to what I  ...

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  ...

Brows, Brows, Brows!

Over the past year or so, it seems that  everyone and their granny have been on a quest to achieve “on flique” brow status and along the way we have witnessed an abundance of hot new brow releases – from both ends of the beauty brands spectrum. However, with so many options available out there it can all seem a bit mind-boggling. From powders and gels to “pomades”, the options are endless. When it comes to my brows, I tend to go for something a little more natural for  ...

Festivals, Blogging and Big Magic

Well, July has been one hell of a month. This week I thought that I would start writing up a monthly update post discussing all of  the best bits, sort of like a “Now thats what I call music” for each month. So here goes… Updates Festivals SO, July went of to a flying start when I somehow managed to win V.I.P tickets to this years T in park festival for myself and a friend. Our luxury festival experience was definitely like no other and it’ll definitely be something I will always  ...

Low Cost Lippies – The Nude Edit

When it comes to beauty, lipsticks are most definitely my Vice – nude ones especially. Whilst rooting through my (overloaded) beauty drawer I noticed that the majority of my favourite nude shades are actually from the drugstore and honestly,  with more and more high street brands releasing fab finishes and formulas I really feel that there is little / no need to splurge on higher end lip products – unless they are truly special or unique. Today I thought I would share a few of  ...
