The Game Changing IT Cosmetics Trio

When it comes to skincare I will try lots of great products but always rely on a trusty skincare routine for my daily usage. There's a certain type of product that I use - make up removing, cleansing, toning, moisturising etc And while I will toy with serums, treatments, oils and masks, I will never stray far from three-four products for everyday skin care.

Testing & Swatching The ENTIRE YSL Volupte Liquid Colour Balm Collection!

When it comes to lip products, everyone loves the matte finishes these days don't they? The amount of brands creating lip kits and the like to satisfy the matte lip lovers is crazy. They're everywhere and there's a version for every budget. I'm okay with matte lips, okay being the operative word. I'm fussy about the formula of matte lip products, most probably because my heart belongs to more creamy or glossy finishes. Just personal preference but I will always reach for the finishes which offer dimension over a flat matte, any day. Each to their own right?

How I Practice Daily Self Care

I've never needed time for myself more than I do recently. I love my job - blogging and freelancing - but I also have a baby (teething and crawling), a son, a fiance, a house to run and numerous other things. Short of a tropical holiday right now, I'm in need of regular breaks. Not just breaks, but time to love myself. Because in the words of Ru Paul "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?"

Father's Day Gift Guide - The Grooming Edit

When it comes to the men in my life, they're all about grooming. Between my fiance, my brother, my Dad...they're all very into taking care of their appearance. Not to the extent that they do anything other than make sure they're clean, fresh and smelling great, you know, the norm. Which makes things like Christmas and Birthday's really easy for me, because you can't go wrong with male grooming products. I could probably buy all of them the same and they'd still be over the moon to be honest. A good aftershave, some smellies and a nice bath set and they'd be happy with any. It's a good job too because the beauty blogger in me loves giving beauty and grooming style gifts for any occasion. 


The One Place You May Be Overlooking For Beauty Shopping...

When it comes to shopping for beauty products, we've all got our favourites haven't we? We've got the amazing all-in-one's like my good friends Cult Beauty and co. Then we've got department stores galore - all with mostly the same brands, but a few exclusives which mean we could never be fully loyal to just one. Then there's the direct brands that are only sold online, and the overseas brands too that we can't get very easily either. Without the make up mecca, Sephora, opening it's doors here in the UK and making all our beauty dreams come true, we do tend to have to shop around for our beauty buys. That's okay, but did you know there's somewhere closer than you think that you may have overlooked?

How To Get Warm Neutral Eye Looks In A Snap

As ever, I'm always looking out for the best eyeshadow palettes for complete looks. Eyeshadow palettes are my number one favourite piece of make up. I have so many but I'll never stop adding to my collection because palettes are bae - right boys and girls?

Why Having Children Young Was The Best Thing I Ever Did

As a mum of two, I live in the constant mum-mode whirlwind. I have two boys - one nearly 8 years old and one nine month - yes, there's a big gap between the two of them. I am now the ripe old age of 3-0 and quite content to be a Mummy of two, a fiance, a homemaker and the such. But it's not an easy task - parenthood is tough, and motherhood is at times the most testing role I've ever had to undertake. But I wouldn't change it for the world. My children mean everything to me.
