Updated Beauty Inventory | September 2015 | Video

Tuesday, 29 September 2015


I like to keep track of how my beauty collection is growing and shrinking out of a simple interest in how my tastes and interests shift over time. I want to stress that there is nothing productive about comparing your beauty collection numbers to mine or anyone else's so feel free to meander through my numbers or skip this video if it doesn't interest you!

Eyeshadow | Singles v Palettes

Thursday, 17 September 2015


Eyeshadow palettes didn't really hit the scene until Urban Decay launched the Naked Palette in 2010. This was the first time people started paying attention to using eyeshadow palettes for everyday wear and it changed the market for the average makeup lover. Now, you can really draw a line between people who love single eyeshadows and people who love palettes. So, what's the difference?

Review | 360 Deodorant Hotate Spray

Tuesday, 15 September 2015


As we move further and further away from the asbestos-loving days of the 1950s and we become more aware about the effects of the products we use everyday on our bodies and the environment, we're becoming much more interested in more natural products to integrate into our routines. When I was contacted by 360 Deodorant to try their 100% natural deodorising spray, I thought I would give it a shot and let you know if it was anything worthwhile.

Everyday Eye | four

Sunday, 13 September 2015


For me, makeup is about finding small joys like a really well coordinated everyday eye look. I've been using one quite a bit recently (in an attempt to use up some eyeshadows!) which is just a little different but still very wearable. I like it because it adds a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral look.

Lipstick | Liquid v Traditional

Thursday, 10 September 2015


After you've been growing your beauty collection for a while, you have a really good idea of what types of products you prefer to use over others. Makeup is incredibly personal, though, so what works for you may not work at all for someone else. After taking a good, long look at my own beauty collection, these are the conclusions I've come to.

August Wrap-Up & September TBR

Tuesday, 8 September 2015


Every once in a while I discuss on my blog my love of books and reading but today I thought I would share something that rarely makes it into a post, my booktube videos! I upload them on to the same channel as my beauty videos but they don't get the same love on my blog until today! This is probably going to remain a rare occasion, but if you happen to want to keep up to date with my reading, please subscribe to my youtube channel (linked above) to find regular updates.

Recent Purchases | August | Video

Thursday, 3 September 2015


In August I finished a 6-month beauty spending ban and I decided to do a bit of catching up in terms of trying new beauty products. I picked up some necessities but also some new, shiny products. If you've tried any of these products, please let me know what you think!
