I like to think I’m somewhere in the middle when it comes to being high maintenance about my appearance. I definitely care, I wear makeup pretty much everyday and I spent money on getting my brows, hair and nails done. But, I feel like I’m fairly relaxed because I don’t spend hours and hours on it and I don’t want to look like I’ve just walked off Love Island. Basically, I unashamedly love beauty and I find it really fun to experiment with makeup and beauty trends. Here are my four rules for getting perfect lashes and brows because sometimes that’s all that makes you happy sometimes and that’s OK.
Say hey to 3INA, (pronounced Mee-Nah!) a guilt-free beauty brand which is vegan wherever they can be and they’re cruelty free as well as using recyclable materials in their packaging. So, all’s good so far, right? Plus, they’ve got super cute branding, an amazing range of products and colours and they sent me these gorgeous matte lipsticks to have a look at and I wanted to share them with you babes.
Travel beauty is something that I find really exciting because everything is super cute and teeny! We’re off to Berlin & Krakow in a few weeks for my birthday so I am all about the travel tips if you’ve got them please. Here are a few of the products that I’ll definitely be taking away with us for our trip. Some are new finds and some are old favourites that I always pick up when we go away. Let me know in the comments if you have any travel beauty posts or recommendations!
Self-care is getting so much air time these days and it’s so great that it is. We’re all starting to realise how great it is to treat yourself, be Hygge at home, chill out, relax, stop beating ourselves up about eating chocolate biscuits and just generally be nice to ourselves. It’s all about relaxing, your wellbeing, your health, sleep quality, the list goes on. But, at the end of the day it’s all things that we should care SO much about but in this crazy modern age (lol how old am I?), we can forget about because we’re just “too busy”. Here are four of the ways that I’m trying to use to look after myself a little bit more. After all, we only gots one body and one mind, guys, might as well treat them right!
January. It’s here and it’s as hard as we all remember. Dark mornings, rainy days and absolutely minimal vitamin D. Ugh. The struggle is well and truly real with looking fresh and perky during the gross winter months. Sometimes you just need a little help and these 5 skincare treats have been helping me feel and look just a little bit more awake! Let me know if you tried any of these products and what you think about them in the comments.
Sorry, I can’t. I’m washing my hair.
Does anyone actually ever use that hilarious excuse? Maybe, I don’t know but I might start. I usually wash my hair every two days and then liberally spray my entire head in dry shampoo every other day. I used to wash my hair every day before dry shampoo was a thing and I am so glad we have all moved with the times because I just couldn’t be bothered to wash it every day these days. Sleep is definitely more of a necessity! My Sunday routine often consists of face masks and hair washing (post bathroom cleaning – obviously!).
Gift sets have to be one of the best things about Christmas, right? Teeny little beauty products, exclusive sets, fresh bottles of perfume and amazing deals from our fave skincare and beauty stores. I just think beauty at Christmas is just extra special! Here are 14 gifts that I’d love to find underneath the tree and that I’d definitely buy for a beauty lover such as myself!
When we usually think ‘holiday’ a lot of us would automatically think of sandy beaches and fruity cocktails, right? Definitely. But, what if you’re a bit Greece-d out, like me? I love Europe but this year I felt a little bit unfulfilled, like I’d not really seen anything that new. It was gorgeous and relaxing and fab but I still felt a bit like I needed something new.
Browsing beauty counters is something that I’ve loved for years. Swatching the shades, getting mini makeovers and walking away with a treat beautifully wrapped in a gorgeous brand’s packaging? The dream for beauty junkies, right? Totally is! So, this is why I was super excited when a new Nars counter landed in John Lewis in Nottingham city centre and I was invited down to check it out.
While I’m still trying to prolong the end of summer as this weird hot October weather is taking over, I need to accept that the seasons are changing! With this change comes loads to look forward to – one of those being new hair trends to try out. I’m definitely going to go a little darker for the winter as I’ve been quite blonde for most of the summer. Check out these 6 sweet trends for AW.
