BirchBox – December Edition

We’re sprinting rapidly towards the end of 2017 – and as usual I’m sitting here listing all the very real similarities between myself and Bridget Jones. And whilst I have been munching on the chocolates meant for Christmas Day, I have realised that this will be my last blog post before the main event; so I […]

Z-Palette

Z-Palettes are basically an essential product for any serious makeup lover – but I’ve been avoiding the inevitable purchase of one only because I usually prefer buying pre-filled palettes. However, Z-Palletes allow you to pick and choose the colours and textures of the eyeshadows they hold – so you know you’ll use every single shade […]

A Christmas Gift Guide

After taking a very stressful week off from blogging in order to complete assessments and hand in a shed load of assignments, I am finally back and very ready to get started on some wintery blog goodness. Although I won’t be taking part in Blogmas, I’ll be keeping to my regular schedule and including a […]

Brand: I Heart Makeup

I Heart Makeup is a brand I’ve really grown to love over the past few months. I’ve seen many bloggers label I Heart Makeup palettes as dupes for Too Faced chocolate products, and even though I don’t completely agree with that, I continue to buy I Heart Makeup products simply because I love the novelty packaging, large range of eyeshadow shades and of […]

Stila Haul

Stila is yet another brand that I always seem to read great reviews about, but never manage to buy from. However, that changed last week when I happened to pop into my nearest beauty outlet, only to find that they had a massive sale on. After talking to one of the shop assistants, I was told […]

Mini Makeup Haul

Every single time I come back home from University, I always seem to end up spending the money I should have been saving… I blame it all on my Mother – because somehow she can convince me to part with my cash on an almost daily basis! For the last few months I’ve been on […]

5 Tips For Problem Skin

I have a definite love/hate relationship with makeup. Having been blessed with eternally terrible acne-prone skin, I’ve worn a full face of foundation since year 8 at school… I was permanently tangoed for two years of my life – and I even had a teacher ask me if my skin had been dyed orange… How embarrassing! My […]

My Little Box – October

I haven’t ordered a monthly box from the My Little Box subscription service since August and sadly, I haven’t really been missing it at all… Due to my bank account practically bullying me into saving money for the next few weeks, I hadn’t actually planned on buying any subscription boxes this month… But because I discovered that October’s […]

I Won A Freebie Friday!

My luck this week seems to know no bounds! Not only did I get a place on my University course’s trip to Chile after waiting on the reserve list for months, I also won a “Freebie Friday” from Beauty Blvd and Of Life And Lemons on Instagram! I seem to enter competitions all the time, […]

A Mini Makeup Haul

As I’ve decided to take part in “No Spend October”, I thought it was probably worth buying a few small makeup items before the end of September to prevent myself from running out of any essential products half way through the anti-spending month! I began this little haul by buying a few sticks of my […]
