I'm moving!

First of all, apologies for having an unannounced week off. I had a minor foot op which knocked me for six, more so than I was expecting. Oh, and I'm moving house.

I've never actually properly moved before, my parents moved when I was six months old and we've been here ever since. I lived away whilst at university, but that's not really same. Now I am packing up everything and spending too long looking at the IKEA website. I'm not the tidiest of people, but my life looks like this:

and it's stressing me out.

A new Scottish love: Arran Aromatics

For those that know me in real life the fact I seem to be slightly attracted to things from North of the border is no surprise. My boyfriend was born and brought up in the Shetland Islands, James McAvoy is my favourite actor and I wear a lot of tartan for someone who lives an hour and a half away from the South Coast of the UK. Therefore, it seemed only natural that I would like Arran Aromatics. I've actually spent a small amount of time on the island as part of school trip when I was in Primary School. If you've never been then I'd recommend it, I'd love to go back one day.

Things that I bought on Holiday

I've spent the last two weeks in France. Where it wasn't really that sunny. I did a little bit of shopping while I was there. I'm a huge fan of French Pharmacy Skin Care. Their pharmacies are full of goodies and loads of brands. Some products you can get hold of here, some you can't. As you can see I bulk bought Serozinc.

Review: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Make-up sponges were thing that only the pros used, the ones available for the public were those white triangles you could get in a big set from Boots. Then the Beauty Blender came a revolutionised it all. I couldn't quite justify the price for one, but I could afford the Boots points I spent on the Real Techniques version - the miracle complexion sponge. After a few weeks of using it, I think I've worked out what I think.

Brand Focus: BareMinerals - an unexpected make-up love


As I mention a lot on here, I’ve struggled with bad skin since my really early teenage years. I did think that by the time I was 21 I’d be blessed with wonderful skin that was clear everyday. Unfortunately, that doesn’t yet seem to be the case. While I wait for that to happen I spend my time searching for solutions and ways to cover up redness and lumps.

Mineral make-up gets a lot of hype by some, but I’ve never brought in to it. I mean, how much coverage can powder give you? Oh how wrong I was….

Travelling Beauty Tips

This post goes live whilst I am sunning myself on holiday (hopefully!). I've done a little bit of plane travel in the last few months as well as my fair share of long car and train journeys. Here are my top tips taking everything and still having some space to buy more.

5 Ways With: Bright Lipstick

I don't really have one 'signature' lipstick, but I love wearing bright lipsticks. I probably own slightly too many, but I don't think there's any such thing.

In today's '5 Ways With' I'm going to show you my 5 favourite brights. I do prefer matte finishes over glossy, but there's a mixture in this selection.
