That New Boyfriend Smell

Wednesday, 14 June 2017

There is something incredibly exciting about getting into a new relationship, and I like to call it the "new boyfriend smell," similar to the smell of a new car, or a designer handbag. Everything is fun and fresh whilst you are getting to know each other, then after a while that new boyfriend smell starts to fade into something more comfortable, like morning coffee and warm woollen jumpers.

DIY American Cream Pink Conditioner

Monday, 12 June 2017

If you're brave enough to follow me on Twitter, you'll know that this past weekend I dyed all of my hair candyfloss pink, something I've wanted to do since my 2012 'Scene' days. I've had bits of pink in my hair before, but it's always rinsed out after one wash, so this time I'm taking extra measures to keep the pretty pink as long as possible, starting with my own DIY pink conditioner.

Review: Dirty Peach Kylie Lip Kit

Wednesday, 7 June 2017
In my last post about Kylie Cosmetics, I mentioned how I was desperate to order both Dirty Peach and Lovebite, so imagine my excitement last month when I saw on Twitter that she had a 2-for-1 sale going on. Unfortunately, when then arrived I found that Lovebite did not suit me at all, so instead of a double review, this post will focus solely on the Dirty Peach lip kit.

My LUSH Hair Product Collection

Wednesday, 31 May 2017

In my eyes, LUSH can do no wrong. Whatever beauty product they turn their hand to, whether it be body lotions, bath bombs or shaving cream, the result is always something spectacular. I do however hold a special place in my heart for LUSH hair products and have built up a decent stash of goodies that due to their extended shelf life, I can alternate depending on what my hair needs that day, leaving me with a LUSH solution for every hair-care problem!

My Interview At Benefit Cosmetics

Monday, 29 May 2017
Last week I was lucky enough to score an interview at beauty super-brand Benefit Cosmetics. As one of my favourite makeup brands ever, I was incredibly excited at the chance to prove myself and score my 'dream career'. A little spoiler alert - I'm pretty certain I didn't get the job for reasons I will expand on later, but I did end up learning a lot about both myself and Benefit as a company throughout the whole process.

Why I'm Happy To Be An Introvert

Sunday, 21 May 2017
Picture the scene; It's 7pm on a Friday night and I'm snuggled down in bed with my boyfriend. We're on our eighth episode of Scrubs and I'm scheduling tweets whilst Adrian asks if I'd prefer Chinese or pizza for tea. It's a little different to the Friday night antics that Katy Perry sang about, but to me, it's perfect.

Confessions Of An Instagram 'Cheat'

Monday, 15 May 2017
Instagram bots, playing 'follow for follow' and false accusations - There's a lot kicking off in the blogging world right now regarding Instagram. It seems that alorgrithm changes and shadow bans were just the beginning of all the drama surrounding the app, as now bloggers and brands are being called out for using 'bots' to inorganically grow their following and buy likes. It's a shocking revelation that has thrown the blogosphere into chaos, but how would you react if you found out that your blogging bestie had been faking the likes on her #OOTD pics?
