Makeup Sponge or Makeup Brush?

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

For the past month or so I've been "going back to basics" and using brushes to apply my foundation rather than a makeup sponge. I say back to basics but when I first started wearing makeup the only tools I had to apply it were my hands. Ahhh those were the days....not. Nowadays you've got the silisponge, fingerblender, oval brushes and so many other ways to apply makeup (some people have literally used condoms).

Skincare Routine

Monday, 27 March 2017

So after publishing my post about acne (here) I thought it would be fitting to write about my current skincare routine. It's not super fancy with a dozen night creams and special oils derived from the Himalayas but it works for me. Due to my problematic skin lot's of face washes and other products prescribed by the doctor have irritated it and often caused more outbreaks.

Let's Talk: Skin&Acne

Saturday, 25 March 2017

I've never felt nervous to write a post before now. I think it's because this one makes me feel a little more exposed and vulnerable than a makeup review or a ramble about friendships. Spots are spots, everyone gets them and they're nothing to be embarrassed about. Skin is sensitive in more ways than one; it's often the source of people's insecurities and something that can be detrimental to someone's self esteem.

Spring Moodboard

Friday, 24 March 2017

As I'm writing this I'm sat by my window looking out at the dreary weather outside; it's dark, bucketing down with rain, and the wind is whistling non-stop. Amid this typical Welsh weather, I've been thinking about how Spring is fast approaching. Although today's setting couldn't be any further away from "Spring vibes" I thought I'd share all the things I love about the upcoming season.

The Birthday Wishlist

Friday, 17 March 2017

In just over a week I'll be turning 17, and this year I really can't wait. Usually I'm not overly bothered about birthday's and tend to dislike the focus being on me (especially when everyone sings happy bday, oh my gosh I loathe it). This year however, I'm pretty excited about the big day because I'll finally be able to start driving lessons, YAY! I can't tell you how long I've been dreaming of being able to drive and I can't wait for the independence.  

The Get To Know MeTag

Thursday, 9 March 2017

As I'm quite new to blogging I thought I'd answer some questions to let you know a bit more about me. I've used most of the questions from Shannon's blog so be sure to go check out her post. I love reading these and getting to know the person behind the blog, so here's my attempt:

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2017

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

There's no relationship more important to me than the one I have with my Mum. She's the kindest, most gracious and warm-hearted person I know. I'm lucky enough to have a Mum who's also my best friend; she's just an all round diamond. I can definitely take her for granted at times though so, Mother's Day is an opportunity to show her just how special she is. Handwritten cards and candles just don't cut it anymore so with the 26th March fast approaching, I've been on the hunt for the perfect gift and thought I'd share a few ideas to inspire you.

Meet Lola

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

If you follow my Instagram you'll know from the endless cat photos that I have a kitten called Lola. She's a 7 month old tabby cat who came into my life in September. The story of how we came to meet is quite sweet; she was a total surprise. My family knew how much I loved cats and how I spent way too much time pinning pictures of them to a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them. I remember the day well, I'd been in my room having a sing along (alone might I add) to Drake blasting through my speakers. Unbeknownst to me, my sister and her friend were downstairs with the little ball of fur. 

New Makeup Discovery: Makeup Obsession Palette

Monday, 6 March 2017

 I'm so excited to share this Makeup Obsession palette as it's something I've been quite obsessed with lately. It was meant to be a gift for my Birthday (which is the end of this month) from my sister, but she decided to give it to me early. I'd never heard of this makeup brand before but it's owned by Tam Beauty, who also own Makeup Revolution. Predominantly sold in boots, they offer bespoke palettes that you can individually create to suit your own personal taste. Although bespoke cosmetics have been around for a while they're usually made by the likes of MAC and Bobbi Brown and cost an arm and a leg. Just like Makeup Revolution makeup products, they're long lasting, highly pigmented and are such good quality for money.

Real Friends, How Many Of Us?

Sunday, 5 March 2017

Throughout my teenage years, the change of friendships have taught me the most about myself and which types of people I do and don't get on with. Making new friends, falling out with people, and outgrowing friendships are all a part of maturing and developing as a person. 

February Favourites 2017

Friday, 3 March 2017

I actually can't believe it's March already. January dragged SOOO much but then February literally felt like a week long. Despite it absolutely whizzing passed I had quite a few monthly loves that I wanted to share. 

Misty Walks In Rhossili

Thursday, 2 March 2017

I know quite a few people who always say they hate living in Swansea and that there's nothing going on and it's boring. It's even described as a "pretty shitty city" in the film Twin Town. Having lived here all my life I've grown to love it and it's actually a really special place to me. It kind of suits everyone too; you've got the beach, city and the countryside. One of my favourite spots to go for walks is Rhossili beach in the Gower as it's a perfect place for taking photos whether it's sunny or (more typically) rainy and is such a calm and soothing place to visit.
