Reasons Why Dating A Beauty Blogger SUCKS

Hello my lovelies, and welcome to the second instalment in my Everything SUCKS series. I'm a little bit late to the party here, but back in January Cosmopolitan posted an article titled "15 things you should know before dating a girl who blogs" which not only was factually inaccurate and simply ew, it was actually extremely insulting to us bloggers who don't actually live off freebies (ie, all of us.)

So for a bit of a giggle, I've come up with some real information about what it's like to date a blogger and a list of reasons why dating a beauty blogger SUCKS *insert laugh emoji*

My Top 5 Benefit Products

Hello lovelies, today's post is an extra special one as I bring to you my first collaboration with the wonderful Ruby from RubyRedR0ses. 

We are both absolutely obsessed with products from one of my favourite brands, Benefit cosmetics. I have previously reviewed my Benefit perfume and lipgloss collections, however I haven't actually explored anything else Benefit-y on my blog so far (which is weird as I am such a huge fan.)

Lime Crime Valentine's Haul

Hello my lovelies! As you may already know, I am a huge fan of Lime Crime despite their shady past, so when they released a new set for Valentine's day, I simply couldn't help myself (and neither could my sister)

Why Daily Blogging Is Making Me ill

Dear Lovely Readers...

This post truly pains me to write, but it's something I desperately need to do. Confession time - blogging every day is making me extremely ill and it's something I just can't keep up much longer.

Over the last week all my friends have been commenting on how tired and sickly I look. I can hardly have a conversation without drifting off and I seem to have a constant headache. To be absolutely brutally honest, blogging every day is almost killing me.

Reasons Why Having Big Boobs SUCKS

Hello my lovelies! This last weekend I was shopping in Doncaster, when I came across a Wonderbra store. Being a rather busty lady myself, having to alternate between the two bras that actually do fit me, I decided it was time to treat myself to some basic over-the-shoulder boulder-holders.

After leaping around excitedly for a good twenty minutes and almost knocking myself out, caused by finding bras that don't cause an avalanche of boob spillage, I decided to compile this list of reasons why having big boobs SUCKS.

Review: LUSH Aqua Marina

Hello my lovelies. I seem to be making LUSH skincare reviews a frequent thing with my Ocean Salt review last week and my Angels on Bare Skin review the week before, but this is only due to the sheer amount of gorgeous LUSH products that I own!

The focus of today's review is Aqua Marina, which is a fresh face and body cleanser suitable for most skin types, especially oily and sensitive skin.
