Time… Continue reading Christmas 2017 for me: everything from veganism to working in retail

Eyeconic brows (review)

I'm no brow pro, but I have realised that if I'm going to wear as much eye make up as I do, I can't really leave my awkwardly coloured, undefined brows untouched.

We’ve lost the pot!

I've always loved a little bit of Lush in my life, and that obsession only grew with my age.

The cosy chronicles

How do you stay cosy and keep your emotions warm when it's cold outside?   Whilst at work last week, I did my 'focus' on uplifting Christmas products and those with neroli (an ingredient proven to stimulate serotonin) and my good friend Hannah showered me with a fact I did not know and had never… Continue reading The cosy chronicles
