I wanna start by saying that this post is super late. Longtime followers of this blog (my mum and my boyfriend) will remember 5 February Favourites from earlier this year, where I wrote about my best beauty discoveries that month, and planned to do every month. Obviously, life got in the way and this never happened. But I’m back! 7 months later and a day late, here are the products I’ve been obsessing over this September. 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation I have a confession to make: this is the first time I’ve ever tried a Benefit foundation.…

It’s 2018, and everyone’s talking about mental health. In a good way. It’s in the news, it’s on Twitter, and now even your mum knows what an SSRI is.

But unfortunately, beauty and make up are not my full time job (yet),…

A couple of weeks ago I went to Vegan Life Live, a two-day event at Ally Pally showcasing the latest in vegan food, lifestyle, and most importantly to me, beauty. I picked up some amazing freebies and left with a decent haul, from lipstick to shampoo, but one thing I was on the lookout for was a decent face mask.

I’ll admit it now, I’m very fucking lazy when it comes to taking my make up off. I’ve heard of girls who can sleep in their make up and never break out (Charlotte Tilbury actually reapplies make up BEFORE bed, a level of extra I can only admire), and sadly I am not one of those girls. But the absolute bane of my life is my eye make up. If I’m doing full glam, whether it’s for a day or a night out, I spend a lot of time and products on making sure that shit will not budge, but…
