Sometimes I absolutely can’t help myself. I’m a bit of a lucky giveaway winner, I seem to win a lot and I don’t know why. I’m also quite lucky at raffles too, just ask Áine 😂😂 So I’ve put myself on a bit of a ban entering giveaways, especially as I own so many products that I barely use already.
If you’ve seen me moaning on Insta stories about my face recently, you might know that I’ve had a weird problem with my right cheek for a while. I just couldn’t get my foundation to sit nicely on it, but now that I’m using a new skin care routine, it’s got a lot better. This means I’ve been able to wear full on make-up again 😀😀 which makes me very happy because, sometimes, it’s just nice to stick on some make-up and feel your absolute best, even if you’re super tired or so over Monday already and it’s not even 9 am yet!!
At the end of last year, I wrote a post about attending the Jingle and Mingle event, hosted by the lovely Mickaela and Amy from Salon Success. Since January, I’ve been using the Awapuhi Wild Ginger Mirrorsmooth products by Paul Mitchell that I was kindly gifted.
Well, I finally made it to Southampton to see Alice and Joshua 😀 I also got a fab surprise in the form of Emily, Alice’s sister!! I follow her on social media and have chatted to her for ages, so it was lovely to finally meet!!
Oh jeez, where to start with February?? Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!! I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!
Having watched several beauty box unboxing videos and reading several different blog posts where people always seem a bit disappointed and underwhelmed with their boxes, it’s always put me off subscribing to any. I just don’t want to fork out that much money every month for products I don’t want, won’t use or already have!
After seeing all the hype and drama about it online, (first the photo that Benefit put on their UK Insta page made the mascara look clumpy AF and secondly there was a bit of blogger shade about *that* Maldives press trip) I really wanted to try the mascara and see what it could do to my lashes!
You know when you’re feeling a bit shit? You feel a bit tubby, your clothes don’t seem to fit that well and your brows and liner definitely aren’t on fleek. Oh and you’re sporting a spot the size of Texas? Well for me, perfume has always been there to pick me up and instantly make my day feel better, anyone else? I have a lot of fragrances that I’ve accumulated over the years, but I thought I’d share my top five with you 🙂
It’s my first chatty catch-up of the year!! I hope you’ve all been well and have survived January? It’s felt like such a long and dreary month, but I feel like I’ve been super productive (for the first couple of weeks anyway) which is lovely!!
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited along to check out a brand that was completely new to my radar; Higher Nature. The event was held at BozBoz Gallery in Brighton (near St Peter’s Church) which was the perfect setting to show off their products.
