It’s a brand new year, and guess what, the unimaginable has happened. Yes, I have found skincare that actually works for me! Absolute years I have spent trying to find skincare products that work for me, and as a woman in her early 30’s, I have become very aware of the need to start some form of routine to care for my skin. My face shows signs of being 31, I have scarring from acne, a greyness under my eyes and before long I know my age will begin to show across my face. Luckily at the moment, people don’t tend to realise I am over 25 which is lovely, but I need to start taking care of myself before I do start physically ageing. I am not overly concerned about ageing as a whole. My mum who is in her 50’s has amazing skin and looks young for her… View Post

IT’S OCTOBER!  Only my favourite month of the year- along with every other absolute basics.  October comes and it’s like all of a sudden it turns into actual Autumn. Leaves start to fall, conkers appear on the ground and YES I CAN FINALLY LIGHT ALL THE AUTUMNAL CANDLES! Let’s not even discuss that it’s also when the queen of autumn beverages becomes available in Starbucks..love you PSL. My current Autumn wishlist is pretty long, as is my ASOS saved items list, and is a combination of everything I need for the new season .  1. The chunky knit jumpers I purchased one of these jumpers from New Look over the weekend and oh my..I now need it in every colour. It is the perfect knit and I love the detail at the back. Not to mention it comes in berry and mustard which are the ultimate Autumn colours!  2. Autumn… View Post

You may have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet on the ol’ blogging front, I felt a bit ‘meh’ about it for a while (ok nearly all of September) but after giving myself a shake, reading some inspiring blogs and playing about with my Olympus Pen, I’m back.  I thought about coming back with an intense life post but these ‘favourites’ type posts are the ones I love to read, so here, an easy read for you which may leave your bank balance a bit lighter by the end, soz not soz.  Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic I KNOW, I’m so late to the party as usual with this one but OMG. This stuff is like actual magic. After my holiday in August, my skin needed a bit of a pick me up. So perusing my local M&S I spied the much loved among bloggers Pixi Glow Tonic and thought YES,… View Post

I have been trying to write this post for an absolute age but honestly, my health kind of took a back seat in July which is 100% NOT okay! I struggled to eat well, exercise and generally felt run down and bleugh!  I think it was that end of term feeling, and as I’ve said before, summer term is always a busy and full on one- so now the holidays are here, I get to spend time on myself and do things I just didn’t have the energy for a few weeks ago.  Writing I am making time to do what interests me and what relaxes me, so writing and photography are right up there! I have mainly spent this first week of the holidays relaxing, cleaning the house, binge watching Netflix originals and cuddling the dogs but everyday I felt this pang of sadness that I wasn’t making time… View Post

Benefit are a brand I have been buying from for what feels like forever. I always remember when I was in secondary school and a girl in my R.E class pulled out a Benetint, telling us her sister worked for the brand and how good it was. A few years later I was a complete fan.  There are few products I dislike from Benefit and they certainly know how to do a relaunch of old favourites alongside adding exciting new products.  Their newest launch has been a range of concealer including four versions of the Boi-ing classic.  I popped along to my local Fenwicks last week to have my brows done by the babes at the Bene-brow bar and they applied some of the Boi-ing airbrush concealer to me afterwards where my makeup had come off and OH MY.  When Benefit say airbrush, they definitely mean it. My skin looked… View Post
