25 Beauty Tips

January 27, 2015

Whilst I love reading articles with such compelling titles (i.e. click bait) as ‘567218 Beauty Hacks You NEED In Your Life’, prior experience has taught me that these are more often than not a compilation of contradictions, old wives tales, and near on impossible techniques. So for the past few months I’ve been making use of the […]

WEEKEND RITUAL #20 : 22 Resolutions

January 25, 2015

The weekend joy has hit, we’ve ALMOST survived January and I’m edging ever closer to the big two-two [Friday!!]. Speaking from experience, there is nothing quite like birthday anticipation to brighten the bleak month of January. Cue SOARING levels of excitement [understatement], wishlist compiling, and coffee/dinner/cocktail/brunch plots filling my diary for the next few weeks. Birth-DAY, or birth-WEEK?? Ahead of hitting […]

The [Better Than] Pillowtalk Dupe

January 24, 2015

I’m quite certain that by now you’re all HIGHLY aware of my love [read : obsession] for No7’s Precision Lips Pencil in Nude. It’s probably my most talked about beauty product of all time, popping up in just about every makeup related post I write, FOREVER a candidate in my monthly favourites shortlists, and the first […]

Skincare to Beat the January Blues

It’s the time of the year when the phrase ‘every little helps’ applies to more than just our food bills – the January blues are for real, and today’s post is set to be a big ‘boo you’ to the effects which they unleash upon our complexions. For me, dull, tired, lacklustre skin is a common occurrence […]

 Wowee, the weekend comes and goes FAR too quickly these days. Firstly, I would like to say a massive MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has read and subscribed to this blog in the past two years.

Stop Then Shop : RMK

January 17, 2015

Officially my ‘brand to watch in 2015′, I was blown away by RMK after a recent visit to their Manchester counter [details here] and have spent the past six weeks fooling around with some bestsellers from their collection. Japan’s number 1 makeup brand have earned a cult following in their homeland and have been causing excitement amongst hardcore beauty […]

Building a Lipstick Wardrobe

January 15, 2015

I buy lipsticks instinctively and impulsively [and without regret], which has left me with a collection which renders those early AM decisions tough. Such occasions have produced some stand-out favourites, and it’s clear to me that I could cut down my collection and still meet all of my lip-loving needs. Whether you’re building up your wardrobe, or cutting […]

10 Under £10 : Makeup

January 13, 2015

I’ll be the first to admit that my beauty buys do err on the side of luxe; for when it comes to makeup and skincare I will always allow myself to indulge. I’m a big believer in quality over quantity, but on occasion the drugstore does throw up an affordable gem which excels with a prowess far beyond it’s […]

January 11, 2015

So, what’s new?? Well, this week marked my last (for the time being) as a city girl. Moving back to the countryside may not have featured on my pre-existent five year plan, but what would life be without it’s unexpected twists and turns?? I took a leaf from my own book, and handed in my notice […]
