Apart from being a makeup obsessed blogger, I’m also an avid social media ‘nerd’. I love it. I love learning about the new trends, creating content, the algorithms behind platforms. Social Media will be my career and if you’re a blogger you have to have a pretty substantial knowledge of it these days in order to get anywhere. It isn’t as easy as it used to be. That being said *unpopular opinion alert* I’ve been…

Hi everyone! A little update to my IPL Hair Removal series. I wanted to chat to you all today to not only update you, but talk to you a little bit about whether or not IPL is permanent. Well, if you recall from the last blog post, I’ve been noticing a huge difference. My hair hasn’t fully stopped growing yet under my arms but there are definitely patches that aren’t growing anymore. It takes about…

I really regret getting rid of my balayage hair and going back brown for the winter. I wish I’d kept at it because I’d be such a gorgeous icy blonde on the ends now! The only problem was it was getting damaged and a little bit brittle. It was time for a serious hair make-over. My hair was desperate for a cut and as you can see, lacking majorly in the lust department. My dye had…

  #Aspen hair and beauty A post shared by Aspen Hair And Beauty✂️ (@aspenhairandbeauty) on Oct 18, 2016 at 8:58am PDT If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you’ll know that I’ve been undergoing IPL Hair Removal and I’ve just had my fourth session. I didn’t think I’d notice such a huge difference so quickly, but I really am. The hair is growing a LOT less and I bearly have to shave…

Liz Earle is a brand that has been around for a long time and is a staple in the beauty world. As a cruelty-free brand that prides itself on their passion for skincare, there is no wonder that they are such a credit to the skincare world. Recently I was sent a few of their staple products to try out. Some I’d used before, some I hadn’t. By now, I’m sure you all know about…

Fleur De Force is one of those beauty gurus where if she says something its good, I’ll take her word as gospel. I’ve followed her for a long time now and I know that if she puts her name on anything, she believes in the product and trusts it. Her lash collection with Eylure is a staple in my lash-wardrobe. Each set I love and wear on the regular, they’re so subtle and beautiful. Favourite.…

In the heat of the summer, there’s only a few things that can truly cool us down but also satisfy our taste buds in the process. One of those being the beloved ice cream, it’s by far my favourite food and I could eat it daily (and sometimes do). Which is why I was so excited when I was invited along to an ice cream tasting session at Movenpick Boutique in Intu Metrocentre. It was a…

As any makeup lover knows that your lips are an essential part of finish off a makeup look. It can make or break your makeup look and I love experimenting with different lip colours, finishes and textures. Making sure our lips not only look good but also feel good is super vital. It’s a sad fact that our lips can often get overlooked when we are doing our facial care routine. We have a special…

As I approach my fourth IPL session by Aspen Beauty, I thought I’d reflect back on my previous sessions for a second and let you know how I have progressed. In sessions 1 & 2 I noticed a visible difference with my hair growth and in the two sessions since I have less and less hair growth. I chose my underarms as my main concern as my skin is rather sensitive and I am most prone…

Ah, Summer, it’s a ritual, isn’t it? Buying new clothes and having a sneaky little splurge in the shops. Living in the North East, we get about a week of sun so I don’t tend to splurge THAT much on Summer clothes but this year is different. It’s been gorgeous weather for two weeks now so it’s time for a little wardrobe refresh as my clothes from last year have been thrown away. Being young,…

It’s not really that often that I believe in fate, but sometimes life just works out in a way that you think it’s a little bit more than pure coincidence. A lot of my life is like that with music, it seems I stumble across musicians at just the right time. Rewind back four or so years ago, walking down Northumberland Street and in front of M&S my ears were drawn towards a particular sound. I…
