Why what Kat Von D says matters

Wednesday, 13 June 2018


We're going to get a little bit controversial in this post. Controversial in the sense that I want to talk about the shrinking boundary (or perhaps false boundary) between politics and the beauty community. Every once in a while the community grabs on to something serious and bigger than eyeshadow palette releases whether that's racism, cultural appropriation, or sexism. Today, I want to talk about why what the big hitters in the beauty community say matters and how to demonstrate that you're listening.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm | Review & Comparison

Monday, 11 June 2018


Remember, back in the old days of Youtube and blogging, when it seemed like every British citizen had a tub of this stuff in their bathroom cupboards and were singing its praises all day, everyday? Around about the same time everyone realised Caroline Hirons was like a skincare oracle and she was still explaining the double cleanse method? I guess what I'm trying to say is that this product has a nostalgic place in my heart even if this is the first time I've actually tried it. I love a cleansing balm and now I've tried one of the legends.

Why Troye Sivan's Bloom Music Video Is Everything

Saturday, 9 June 2018


I am not one of those people who has followed Troye Sivan through his youtube and music career from the beginning. I can't even really say I'm a fan of him. I bought WILD back in 2015 and I do a quick google when I see his name circling twitter. His video for "My! My! My"! was one of the most beautiful and intoxicating pieces of media released this year and I highly encourage anyone who hasn't seen it to go and watch and be stirred. Two days ago Troye released the video for his newest single, "Bloom", and I have to talk about it.

Glossier Skincare | Roundup Review

Wednesday, 6 June 2018


I'm approximately three years late on this review, I know. Living in Australia makes getting your hands on Glossier really difficult unless you have a super helpful friend who is willing to ship you some products from the US. It's been about 6 months since I started using Glossier skincare products and it's time to talk about them.

Pan That Palette 2018 | Update Four | Video

Sunday, 3 June 2018


In which I show you the progress I've made on my Tarte Energy Noir Clay Palette since my last update in April. Unfortunately, I missed my update in May so this is two months worth of progress! I am seriously struggling to stay motivated with this project and I'm debating all my options for how to continue. I'd love to hear your feedback on how you motivated yourself in past or current projects and any advice you could offer! Thanks for watching!
