5 Product Face

Tuesday, 3 March 2015


Some mornings I love getting creative with makeup, treating my face like a blank canvas and preparing it for the day ahead; deciding on a bold eye or lip, cool tones or warm, contoured or natural. Other days I don't want to go near the stuff and feel like my skin needs a breather. If I still need to look somewhat put together, I only use what's 'necessary' (disclaimer: no makeup is necessary and if you want to go bare, rock it. For those of us who feel a little more coverage / emphasising is in order, carry on reading).

Designing Your Dream Blog

Sunday, 1 March 2015


Creating and up-keeping a blog is a great way to express yourself, not only with words and photographs but the overall look of your website. The instant feeling you get when visiting a site is going to determine within seconds whether you're or not you're in sync with the designer and you want to be sure your blog reflects and emphasises your creativity, style, and personality.

40 Days and 40 Nights

Thursday, 19 February 2015

Christmas saw us stuffing our faces silly and January had us pinching the pennies and scraping together meals from what was left over. Now it's mid-February and we're feeling a little back on track and it's time to really begin thinking about how we want to continue into the year. Lent is upon us and we're given the chance to all come together and eradicate (at least) one thing from our lives that isn't serving us in the long run. Traditionally it was a 40-day fast, but now we mark the occasion with giving up a single vice like chocolate or alcohol.

Why You Should Epilate

Tuesday, 17 February 2015


There are many - oh, so many - ways of removing our bodily hair nowadays from shaving and waxing to tweezing and laser-ing, we seem to always be looking for the most effective way to get rid of that hair in favour of smooth,  naked skin. I like my legs both hair-free and hassle-free, so I've long since ditched the razor and wax and opted for something far less time-consuming and far more effective.

Brands Worth the Penny

Sunday, 15 February 2015


There are so many products out there (and increasingly more) that it can be difficult to keep up, let alone find a place to stash them! We all have our vices (I covet skincare and lipsticks), but are we just falling for the hype of a new, shiny product that'll soon be yesterday's news? Of course, as a beauty blogger, there will always be a few of these in the mix but to help lessen the drooling and dribbling over the new season releases of, well, pretty much all things beauty, it's important to narrow down your agenda by knowing what brands work for you. Here're the ones that have my stamp of approval:

Bright Eyes

Thursday, 12 February 2015


We all want to look fresh and flawless ready for the day ahead, but sometimes that extra glass of red or 'five more minutes' turning into an hour allows those dark circles and unsightly bags to creep in. Drinking water, having early nights, and eating fresh produce is, although the ticket to fresher skin, not going to be a quick fix. So, what can we do the morning after when we have minutes before having to look bright eyed and bushy tailed? I have you covered. Quite literally.
