How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Saturday, 27 May 2017

As annoying as it may be, cleaning makeup brushes is essential. Having said this, anything that speeds up the process and makes it feel less of a chore is happily accepted. That includes the god sent that is the real techniques brush cleansing gel which I discovered a few months back. It is a LIFE SAVER. It's so much quicker than the classic bowl of hot water and fairy liquid. There's not a soap sud overload that gets stuck deep in the hairs and it doesn't take yonks to do.


Let's Talk: Voting And The General Election

Friday, 26 May 2017

Don't worry, I'm not going to get all preachy and ramble about complicated politics and tell you who you should vote for, but instead I want to highlight the importance of voting in the General Election on June 8th 2017. That's just two weeks away.


A Hidden Gem: Max Factor Creme Puff Powder

Tuesday, 23 May 2017

I think I've found my new favourite powder. I don't usually stray from my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte but I've been reaching for this Max Factor Creme Puff one every time I've worn makeup recently. Isn't creme puff the nicest name? Really rolls off the tongue (and makes me want a pastry).
It's been stuck in my draw ever since I had it for my Birthday but I used it spontaneously while I was in a rush doing my makeup and just slapped anything I could find on my face. Surprisingly it made my 5 minute makeup job look much better than the usual disaster I muster up. I haven't seen anyone talk about this so I felt like I needed to share it.

How To Make Saving Moolah Easier

Saturday, 13 May 2017

Can we acknowledge the niffler pop funko. I'm trying to channel him at the moment except I'm not stealing money just being extremely frugal.
Does anyone even call money moolah anymore? 
One of my new year's resolutions was to try my very best to save as much money as possible for driving lessons and eventually buying my first car. Although all of my other resolutions were broken within the first days of January I've actually stuck to this one. Yeah, I'm shocked too. 


Classic Coffee And Walnut Cake

Tuesday, 9 May 2017


I can't believe it's taken me so long to write a baking post. The past few months have been so hectic so baking has definitely been put on the back burner. I didn't even bake during Easter. Not once. Which is so out of the norm for me. Since I'm now working in a vintage tearoom I'm constantly surrounded by cake. It's unbelievably tempting but is also perfect for baking inspo and ideas. One that I've particularly liked (quite a few slices have somehow made their way home with me) is the coffee and walnut cake so I decided to give it a go and it actually turned out really well.


April Playlist

Thursday, 4 May 2017

Last month I found myself listening to a lot more music than usual. Don't get me wrong, I usually listen to music most days anyway but I seemed to be broadening my horizons a bit more. I always love discovering new music and finding new people to listen to so here are a few of my most played songs from throughout April:


Coachella Dreaming

Oh yes, it's that time of year again when your Instagram feed is swamped with countless photographs that make you want to burst with envy. The typical boho outfits, wacky shades, and plenty of glitter mean that Coachella is in full swing. Every time I stumble upon one of these uber cool candid photos, I wish I was able to fly out to California and be there to experience it all. Although I didn't go, and let's be real probably never will, I wanted to do a roundup of the most memorable snaps I saw from the festival this year.
