October Monthly Favourites | 2019

Fall has really come through and I’m feeling the cold just a bit! I do love this season though and just the other day, I was able to rummage through the autumnal leaves in my new leather boots (cue favourite for next month’s post). I hope you’re all wrapped up warm? I haven’t written a Favourites post for a good couple of months now so I thought it was about time that I told you what I have enjoyed as of recent! Let’s get started shall we?

Products I Want But Don’t Need Therefore Won’t Buy! ft. Joyce

It’s no unknown fact that the beauty industry is flourishing right now. Great for us as shoppers because there’s choice (although perhaps too much choice); horrible for businesses as competition gets more fierce unless you’re Jeffree Starr. Today, we’re going to be doing something a little bit different. I’ve been blogging on and off for about 5 years now and I have never done a collaboration post. Well, things are about to change soon. Me and my good blogger friend Joyce @localgirlforeignland started talking and the idea of a collaboration post came up! You can follow Joyce here and here. I’ve never actually posted an anti-haul before on the blog so that’s what we’ll be doing today. Feel free to leave in the comments what products would be in your anti-haul! ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Please note that I do not own any of the images. Each image belongs to its brand respectively. Suqqu Pure Color Blush – retailing at £34 I can’t quite remember when I first heard about this brand – I think quite possibly via …

Products I’m Trying Out This Year

My shopping has gotten a bit out of hand in recent months. Not that I buy heaps in one go but that’s possibly where the problem lies. I buy in bits and before you know it, a collection has been built but nothing has been opened for use yet. It’s fair to say that I have a few product categories that I no longer need to fill in for this year and what is that you ask? Without further ado, let’s get started! FYI, most of these products were purchased on Amazon. I’ve recently come back from Hong Kong so any beauty products that I’ve purchased on that trip will be showcased separately.

January Monthly Favourites | 2019

It has been so long since I have drafted up a monthly favourites post! I’m giving this series a re-boot which is refreshing for me because I have been meaning to share my love for a couple of products. I originally stopped this series this time last year actually due to the fact that I was running out of new favourites that had not already been mentioned on the blog. I was basically rotating my favourites around for months in use so it seemed pointless to continue writing them then. Now that my collection is entirely different, I’m ready to get back into the swing of posting Favourites!

I don’t remember the exact price but they’re very, very affordable and the best cotton rounds that I have ever tried and …

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 …
