Urban Decay Vice – Review

I seem to have enough eyeshadow palettes to fill at least two of my dressing table drawers – but does that stop me from buying more of them? Clearly not… Urban Decay is my favourite brand for all things eye-makeup, but sadly my student budget doesn’t always allow for the relatively high-end purchases I desire. However, […]

Pink Parcel – August

By now I think every reader of this blog knows all about my love for subscription boxes. I usually try to buy one a month – from varying subscription services – based on the product and theme previews posted on social media before the boxes are released. This month, Glossy Box’s Pride edition caught my eye, but I […]

Valencia – A Travel Guide

Valencia has always been one of my favourite Cities, but I’ve never really had the chance to experience it properly. When two opportunities to spend time in the heart of the City presented themselves this year, I jumped at them. So not only did I get to spend a day sightseeing with Emily, I also […]

5 Days in Spain – Photo-book

Whilst I’m trying really hard to make progress with my dissertation research (procrastinating), knowing that Laurie is still in Spain is making it super difficult – I just want to be back in the 30 degree heat!! So, what better way to reminisce than a post that groups together all of the photos from my […]

Summer Beauty Essentials

The beauty products I use at different times of the year don’t really tend to differ massively.

July Birchbox

Theme: “Say Yes To Adventure!” I wasn’t actually intending on buying the July edition of Birchbox, but as I forgot to cancel my subscription last month, I ended up with it anyway. However, even though this isn’t the best box I’ve received from them, I like all of the products I was sent and I probably […]

Free June Birchbox (Part 2)

After using a code to buy June’s birthday Birchbox, I received this bonus box for free. I was a tiny bit disappointed to receive the previous March “Mindfulness” edition rather than a completely new free box – But I was happy that I hadn’t received this particular box before, and I really like the overall design and […]

June Birchbox (Part 1)

In June, Birchbox turned 5 years old, so this month’s edition celebrates with a tea-party-themed collectable tin instead of the usual cardboard drawer. After missing out on the Look Fantastic birthday box last year, I decided to purchase this and managed to use a promotional code to bag myself a free surprise Birchbox as well […]

Tiny Haul: 4 Products Under £5

I’ve been on a little bit of a spending ban this week simply because I know I’ll be converting some Pounds to Euros for my upcoming holiday to Spain and paying a huge amount for the ridiculous list of injections I need before I fly to Chile for a field trip. However, I was never […]
