Testing: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip

I have been obsessed with these liquid lip colours by Rimmel for quite a time now, they have made an appearance on the blog a few times as I have them in multiple shades. The formula applies so smoothly and does not budge- I cannot recommend them enough! When I saw this shade I knew I had to try…

What’s in my bag: moderen- day Mary Poppins

‘What’s in my bag?’ – there are millions of these floating around the net, but if you are to look in anyone’s bag, you must look in my flatmates Louise’s. Louise is not only one of my coursemates but also one of my favourite humans on earth! Ever heard the saying “pack for every eventuality”?…

Testing: 5 days of (Naked) Heat

About time if I say so myself – I have had this pallet for nearly a month before I could bring myself to use it as its so beautiful. Stupid as it sounds but I really didn’t want to mess up the perfect shadows. Holly’s minor OCD aside – a post about how I found…

Today’s Wardrobe: the forgotten shift

This shift dress I have has been tucked away in my drawer for nearly a year because to be quite honest, I completely forgot I had it until this week! I’m still in love with this jumper which features in a previous post I wrote (which can be found here) it is so snug and feels luxurious! …

‘Knit happens’

*side note: what a pun if I ever saw one Things tend to get more tiresome in colder months and with the darker nights its hard not to feel more drained but when sh*t happens, knit happens… The high street stores have a great range of knit-wear on offer this year, for me personally, I…

Testing: Revolution liquid highlight

I love Makeup Revolution products so much; they first captured my heart with their contour pallet and then their highlighters which are next level. So when they announced they were releasing some liquid highlighters, I knew I would have to get on that too. Like most of us, I love a popping highlight because it puts…

My October goals

Finally, it is autumn – my favourite season! The leaves change colour, Halloween is on its way and after Halloween, it is the Christmas countdown. I love nothing more than being able to bundle up in a coat and cosy scarf as winter fashion is by far my favourite. I don’t usually like to use…

7 Faves: September

Long time, no post it a little bit of an understatement! September has been a crazy month really with so many changes, the biggest being moving back to Uni for year 2! Excuses aside, I have truly missed blogging – so I am back on it! Okay, my seven fabulous faves of September:   First of…

The only skincare I need

I have just returned from holidaying in Gran Canaria – it was a lovely break before going back to Uni which is really great! As we all know (well for me at least), when going on holiday it is the struggle of ‘what to bring or what not to bring’. It is the never ending…

My advice to freshers

As the season is upon us for new students to venture into the world of university, booze, and wonderful new experiences, and upload a post about the first year of Uni from my perspective in the hope that it will give some of you new first years a small insight into what uni is like….

19 and blessed

I have been contemplating whether to do this post and how to compose it because a) it’s been a good five days since my birthday, b)  I don’t want to come across as materialistic. But here we are and I’m just going to write it. Yes, my birthday was last week and it was quite…

Simple Summer (hair)Style

Sorry, I just really wanted that alliteration going on, even though it doesn’t really count… Yes, so as the title shows, a summer hairstyle idea! I am not very creative when it comes to hairstyles as I either wear it down or in a ponytail – exciting times. However last week I had really greasy…
