Skincare has always come first for me before makeup and I am conscious to look after my skin (thanks to my mum) but especially as a student, I’d never really looked into what I should be using on my skin, what is best for my skin type etc and had a regimented routine. I’d remove my makeup with a makeup remover, occasionally do a face mask/exfoliating scrub, cleanse then moisturise and that would be me done. Recently however, I was VERY generously gifted some Dermalogica products to try as part of their #skinfluencer programme (which I am still overwhelmed by) and oh my goodness they have changed my whole perspective on skincare. I’ve heard a lot of people say this who are also in the programme but honestly it really is like having a mini facial at home. OBSESSED. You really feel these products are getting down to the nitty gritty not just on the surface of the skin.View Post
Happy November 1st cherubs! I say it every month but I really can’t believe another month has flown by. The Christmas count down has officially begun haha – or am I a bit early? Not to be dramatic but it is only just 8 weeks away, not to scare anyone and with seeing all the Christmassy bits in the shops, I can’t help but feel excited.
The weather has certainly got a LOT colder now we are coming towards saying farewell to Autumn, soon to be Winter, in the final months of this year. It’s definitely time for the return of the scarfs and hats! This morning me, my family and the dog went on a quiet, crisp walk to Kildale (in North Yorkshire) and although the cafe was shut (lesson learnt) I still enjoyed taking a few snaps along the way and seeing the season changing. I thought I would share the photos I got as a little round off to Autumn, my fave time of the year…View Post
I can’t believe the last time I did a baking post was back in April! This one is definitely due! I’m back with yet another chocolatey recipe. This morning me and my mum thought we’d have a go at making some brownies seen as the weather wasn’t up to much. Baking is one of my favourite things to do, especially in the Autumn and although I can’t say these are bake-off standard, for a first attempt they tasted delish, which is the most important thing right? I promise you won’t regret making these which you can enjoy at the end with friends and family…or just yourself teamed with a cuppa. This recipe also doesn’t use flour and is instead, flourless (university challenge here I come) and also doesn’t require much skill or any fancy ingredients.View Post
If you know me, you’ll know that I’ve always loved my polishes. I remember paining my nails in primary, thinking I was the bees knees with my crackle nail polish. Who else remembers that?!
Especially now I’m at college, my nails are usually painted in some form, (when I have the patience) either with polish, press on ones or gels which I now do myself thanks to the kit I got last Christmas! Thank you mum. So when celebrity nail profession, Roxanne Campell’s email popped in my inbox asking if I wanted to try some samples of her own luxury nail lacquers from the collection and share my thoughts, I was beyond excited. I have picked out three shades perfect for this season and also transiting into the winter months.View Post
Currently, this Autumn I’ve been opting for a very natural look and have been more about letting my skin breathe which I’ve been enjoying. In fact, I think I’ve been going for less than what I did in Summer bizarrely! I have also made a few new product discoveries too! I’ve been opting for a neutral lip, warm eye and matte base whilst keeping bronzed. Ya girl is still living her pale life. All the products I’ve been using and loving are all drugstore too! If you know me, you know I love my drugstore products.
