How To Texture Your Hair For Summer

If there's one look I love for summer, it's textured, beach waves. I have the finest hair known to man,  it's thin but long (ish) and I have to wash it almost everyday because as fine-haired girls know, the flat head look on day two post-wash, is not a good look for anyone... When it comes to creating texture in the hair, I've become a pro at finding the best (and worst) products to help. I like to think I've got a good stack of products that work for me, depending on what style I'm going for - one thing is for sure, all products do not work for all styles. So it's important to pick hair care products that will perform for your chosen style, otherwise you're likely to be disappointed.

Four Reasons You Need The Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette

When it comes to my seriously loved brands, Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of them. My collection has grown massively recently and that's all thanks to Cult Beauty who are stocking a massive amount of their goodies now - and I'm a sucker for a Cult Beauty haul! Most recently we all went gooey-eyed over the seriously gorgeous looking Soft Glam palette. The second I saw it, there was no doubt in my mind that I'd be adding it to my collection, and it hasn't disappointed at all.

There's A New Beauty Sponge In Town

When it comes to make-up tools, we all have our trusty favourites. We'll likely try new brands, new products and special tools for specific roles, but how often do we completely abandon our fail safe brands in replace of another? For me to replace a trusty product - whether a make-up applicator or product itself, it has to be outstanding. I've used a lot of amazing products over the years, but to push previous Holy Grail's aside and replace them, something has to truly shine and do it's job to an outstanding level.

Twenty Second Tan - With Tropic Skincare


Cue everyone swarming to beer gardens, wearing strappy tops and flip flops. When spring finally arrives in the UK, we embrace it like a long lost relative - grateful that Uncle Winter has gone for another year. For me that means one thing - it's time for the tan to come out. I naturally don't tan, I burn. Which is really annoying, so I have to rely on the fake-it-til-you-make-it method and use some form of fake tan. I've tried so many over the years, literally hundreds and some have been pretty good. But what I've never, and I mean never found, is a good facial tan. Multiple times last year I tweeted asking for good ones to try and each time I found moderate or badly performing versions. I usually just use a standard fake tan on my face, but it's so bad for the skin and wears off unevenly with the use of daily skincare. I really thought there was no wonder product out there to help give me a tan on my face...

What Social Media Has Taught Me Recently

As a blogger, I'm constantly online. To be honest, I'm more than a bit addicted to checking Instagram, scrolling through Twitter and generally logging online to see what's going on...even when I don't a.) actually care or b.) have the time. It's as much of an addiction as anything else and it can suck the joy out of life in an instant - or fill you with satisfaction just as quickly. When you're so invested in something, no matter what it is, your moods and emotions bounce off it. By this I should be even more brutally honest and say, your moods will often actually be dictated and commanded by it.

Top 5 Sheet Masks For Better Looking Skin

When it comes to pamper days and nights, I'm all about sheet masks. In fact, I'm all about any kind of face mask, but sheet masks are just so easy these days. Less mess by far and fab results - if you find the right ones. Sheet masks might mean you look a little bit like you're dressing up for Halloween for 15 minutes, but if you find a great one, you can guarantee it's worth the frightening 15 minutes for the glow you'll notice afterwards. I've been trying a lot of sheet masks recently, and some have been a huge hit, and others have delivered virtually no results. (I'm just being honest - not all beauty products do what they say on the tin folks!) However in my little testing sessions, I've found five absolute keepers - some of which I've already rebought several times over. So here's my top 5 sheet masks for better looking skin...

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance vs The Dupes: Which Is REALLY Best?

When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, the cult ones never get old, do they? I'm talking about the ones that even years down the line are still as popular as when they first launched. The ones that sit just in shot on Instagram pictures, and the ones that are constantly replaced when you hit pan on your favourite shades. There's just some palettes that deserve it and their cult status. And one of the most obvious is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance.
