What I Bought on Black Friday – A TK Maxx Haul

I am feeling like a hypocrite because I remember a couple of posts back, I said that I was not one to write haul posts and now for some reason, I really want to share this haul post and more. 😆 Addictive habit I tell you! I have started to shop a lot more often than I ever have in my entire life since getting a new job. I really don’t know what it is. The need for new clothes comes every month and it’s amazing to return back to the feeling of “I have nothing to wear” like really? Anyways, today we are not talking about clothes – which by the way, I still need to get on topic about that. Today we are talking about what I bought last Friday at TK Maxx – my version of a Black Friday sale which is really just every time I shop at that store. 😂 Featured in this post: TI Style 2 in 1 Face BrushSukin Love Your Skin Sensitive SetBdellium Tools Green Bambu Complete …

My Current Everyday Makeup and Favourites

It’s been a time since I’ve written anything makeup-related so I thought I’d kick things off again by letting you in on my current everyday makeup routine. I was going to call it a makeup tutorial but I didn’t want to seem like some self-defined high-up person who could teach about makeup. I’m just a girl who somehow got into it and figured what’s best for me and what’s not, y’know? Certainly, there are a lot of makeup favourites in this routine which I’ve stuck to everyday – or at least every time I do my makeup. It’s perfect for work but also dressy enough to go out – a little something but not overly done. I actually haven’t gotten sick of the routine and since a job change, I realise how routine is so key. I’d like it if you could reply with your current makeup routine and favourites. In exchange, here’s mine! It would also benefit you greatly if you grabbed a hot beverage as this is a long post… Featured in this …

January Monthly Favourites ft. Real Techniques and Bobbi Brown!

I am thrilled to talk about this month’s favourites!  Last month was quite a boring month (even if it was Christmas month…) because I didn’t really try anything new or if I did, it was very late within the month. Mainly, I stuck to my previous favourites so nothing changed. Despite so, my last favourites post actually fared really well, so thank you everyone! 🙂 I haven’t been beauty shopping much* because I am trying to use up what I do have whilst also resetting my current collection – both in skincare and makeup. This month’s buys consist only of two brushes (featured here) but everything else are months old in terms of purchase, so you can imagine my delight when I finally got round to trying (and loving) them! *I’ve bought bits and bobs from Home Bargains the other day, but they were extremely cheap and cheerful. Half were essentials and replacement items!  Here they are, in all their glory, my favourites of the month… Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil …

A Beauty Haul + A Few First Impressions

I’ve been doing a whole lot of shopping lately; and this post doesn’t even cover everything that I’ve bought in the last month or so. In fact, I went shopping again on Sunday and bought some more beauty goodies. I’ve also invited a couple of new separates and outerwear into my wardrobe too but I’ll have to leave that for another post! I know some of my readers and fellow bloggers participate in no-buy months/spending bans and whilst I don’t think I’m a self-professed shopaholic, I do haves waves of going wild and this is a perfect example of one of them. I imagine that I won’t be shopping like this again until February when I’m away to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year so there: that is my spending ban planned out! 😛 I’d say this haul is quite equal parts in both makeup and skincare – enjoy! 🙂 Featured in this post: BarePRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation SPF 20 (in shade ’12 Natural Warm’) Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet …

Skincare I Took to Berlin

Happy Fall! I’m so happy for this new season…are you? I’ve never openly expressed this before (I don’t think) but I would say it’s my favourite season. Summer is great for its long days which makes my photography game strong; but my skin hates it! Now that it’s fall again, my skin is a lot nicer. Behaving. I’ve yet to share my experience of Berlin with you but first: skincare I took to Berlin.  You can also check out this post if you haven’t already: 5 beauty products I took to Berlin.
