Lashes can make or break a makeup look, they can either look beautiful or awful. There’s rarely any inbetween for me. If I could wake up with beautiful long, thick lashes everyday, I would. Oh wait… I can. I put off getting lash extensions for years, I thought I wouldn’t be able to maintain them and that they’d be an ultimate faff on. I was SO wrong. I don’t even notice that they are there and apart from the odd twisty lash (my fault) and getting infills, they require little to no upkeep. Of course there are some things you should and shouldn’t do, but that’s a given really. I’m warning you now, this will probably be a long post as I have a LOT to say. I’ll try and go in chronological order of the process etc and how they are, including pictures. The treatment is in collaboration with… View Post

Ideal World is a shopping channel and website full of lots of goodies, including beauty products! When they asked me if I’d like to try some of their products in a little beauty box, I jumped at the chance. I love trying new products and seeing what they’re like.

I swear, the Wet… View Post

Blogging has taken me many places but one place I didn’t expect to visit so early in my blogging career was Lumley Castle! I first visited Lumley Castle, which is in Durham in July. I was speaking on a panel for the North East Chamber of Commerce’s annual ‘Inspiring Female’s’ conference. I was on the panel with two other girls and we were talking about the future of business, it was such a fun day and I completely fell in love with Lumley Castle that day. It was a gorgeous summer’s day and the castle looked beautiful. With blue skies and lovely weather, it was a picturesque day! After the amazing day at the NECC conference, I was invited back to do a hotel review and experience the castle in the winter. As I pulled up to Lumley Castle, at around 5pm I was amazed at how beautiful it was… View Post

Oh bronzer, how our relationship is rocky. You’re temperamental. Will you show up? Will I look orange? Will it blend? Finding the right bronzer is HARD. It either looks great, orange or doesn’t show up. It’s hard to find the right one for your skin tone and can so easily look awful. There are very few bronzers I actually like, and the ones I do like are higher end. I’m sorry, but they just get it right. Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel and Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Natural are two that compliment my skin very well. I’m pale so it’s easy to get it so wrong. This Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder is completely matte, which I love in a bronzer. If it’s shimmery or glittery, it can look just too much on the skin and not give the right definition or colour to the skin. This isn’t a bronzer I… View Post
