At the moment

Last year when I first started this blog I did monthly favorites, my last one was in June, however, I always found myself struggling to find any more than two or three because let’s be real: how many of us find more than three things per month which we actually like? So as of now,…

What I have packed for Paris

Packing in general has never been my favourite thing to do, it’s the effort of sorting out what you need and what you want to take. Then there is everything from the washing, ironing and folding of clothes, to buying those tiny bottles to transfer shampoo and conditioner into. However over the years I have…

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”?…
