I love where I live. I’m close to the coast and also the city, so if I want to escape or immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle, or chill out with a gorgeous coastal walk. I’m lucky enough that I can jump on a Metro and find myself in either destination within half an hour. I get the Metro almost daily, whether it be going to work, for meetings or visiting friends. It’s such…

We’re officially in November, entering the party season and scouring Asos for some new clothes with a hint of glamour for the festive period. It’s time to step up our hosting game and have our friends over (because you know, it’s way too cold to leave the house). Rekorderlig got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to host my own Swedish dinner party and show what types of food I’d pair the…

It’s been a while since I entered the blogosphere with an event, Newcastle has been severely lacking in any beauty events and when Alex Silver PR asked if I’d like to come and explore the brand ‘Kiss’ a little bit more, I jumped at the chance. Kiss have got in touch with me before, asking if I’d like to try some products. They sent me a few pairs of lashes and although they are beautiful, they…

Inclusivity is something I’ve always been aware of. See, when you’re born differently you become aware of how the world can be pretty unfair and see it through different eyes. There are just those things that you process differently. It doesn’t matter how you’re different, you just know. If you didn’t already know, I was born with a facial disfigurement called Cystic Hygroma, which I still have now. It’s super rare and it meant my…

There are two things in life we really, really can’t ever be bothered to do. One is changing our bed sheets (seriously, do people enjoy this?) and the other is washing our makeup brushes. There are countless cleansers on the market that claim to clean our brushes perfectly and end up running out within a few washes. How do you clean your brushes? The thing is with makeup, the different ingredients react with different cleansers.…

Although the weather might not reflect it, summer is upon us. My beauty routine is definitely reflecting that! My skin is dewy, my lips are bright and my highlight is glowing. I like every part of my beauty routine to reflect the season I’m in and this year I’ve been looking after my body using these two beautiful gift sets from The Body Shop. Both the Piñita Colada Gift Set (Piñita Colada Shower Gel 250ml, Piñita…

There’s one thing that really plagues our lives. Sugar. It’s everywhere and we really can’t avoid it that easily. We probably (well, at least I do) consume way more than I need to and it’s becoming a real problem. I just really love sweets, okay?! This is where this blog post comes in, Nestle has launched 30% less sugar in some of my favourite sweets! They recently sent me some to try and I’m actually…

With every great makeup artist comes a great set of brushes. The tool of the trade. You can’t achieve a great smokey eye without the perfect blending brush, or the most flush cheeks without a blush brush that *just* fits the apple of your cheeks just right. Beau Belle has been sweeping Instagram a lot lately, I’m sure you’ve seen these beautiful brushes already. With their copper handles and monochrome bristles, it’s every blogger’s dream.…

Alright. I did it. Finally. The most anticipated, built up experience a girl can have in a salon. It’s a daunting experience, the thought of someone you don’t know going near your intimate area to rip off your hair. Not something I particularly WANTED to experience but when you see my announcement at the end of this month, you’ll understand why (please don’t jump to any conclusions, as it’s probably not what you think it…

The right fragrance can make you feel confident, sexy and ready to take on the world. After a swipe of the right lipstick and a spray of the perfect perfume, we’re ready to conquer anything. Perfume is something that I love to treat myself with, a new scent can transform my whole mood and make me ready to take on the day. When Shay & Blue got in contact and asked if I’d like to…
