Adulting. Something everyone fears when they get past 20, but can't wait for throughout the tean years. It's amazing how many times me and my besties have messaged each other over the last few days going "I feel so grown up today" but really, why do we have to be grown up? Just because we're 25... *cough*

I love playing with make up, which is probably why I write a beauty blog. It's fun to try new products, new looks and it's fun to try and recreate the looks of some of your favourite stars. I'm not a trained make up artist, or anywhere close for that matter, but then neither are most of you. Not everyone is a natural and not everyone can recreate the exact looks shown on some of our favourite beauty icons - but we can but try.

I know, there have been a LOT of chubby stick dupes in the drugstore. It even got to a point where I refused to buy any more lip crayon-esk products because I was so bored of the whole thing. However, Clinique's Chubby Sticks were the first to market and honestly - not many of the drugstore brands managed to remake the same formula, until this one.

Welcome to my first ever Q&A! I was really excited about doing this as I've not done one before and I just think it's a really good way to get to know the face behind the blog/channel. I love watching Q&A's so let's face it... it was only a matter of time before I did one!

After the dress, this is probably the biggest decision you'll have to make for your wedding. There are so many things to consider and honestly, it can get a little overwhelming. It's also probably the first thing you should book. Until you have your venue, it's very hard to do anything else or envisage what you want your wedding to look like.

First up, yes, I know, they are disgusting. but this is what concealers look like then they're used every damn day. They get messy. Moving on... If you saw yesterdays video you would have seen me use 3, yes 3, concealers. This is a daily thing for me as I find the best concealers for each "concealer job" are all seperate products...

I'm lucky enough that a couple of days a week I get to work from home - which usually means a lazy make up day. If I'm not going anywhere I just won't bother, however if I'm popping to the shop or going to see my Mum I'll put together my version of a no make up, make up look.

Welcome to the first installment of #SundaySpotlight - a weekly post of appreciation a particular blog/channel that I've been loving lately. I think it's so important to recognise other bloggers or youtubers as it is a community and honestly, it's probably something I've not done very well in the past. But I've had some lovely readers/viewers etc and I want to give back!

I think Miss Watson is either someone you love or hate. Personally I love her. One thing you can't dispute though is her style - it's just perfection and honestly if I could have her wardrobe/figure I would die a happy happy girl. So when I saw she was doing a collection for Shelikes I was straight online, choosing my favourite pieces for my wishlist.

You would have seen earlier in the year I popped together both my morning and evening skincare routines on YouTube, however as it gets warmer my morning routine diminishes slightly and those mornings there I have to rush to work, it gets very minimal. However, there are a few choice products I currently wouldn't dream to leave out of my morning routine and guess what - all of them are under £10...

This is something we put together fairly early on, before we look at venues, and I did actually find it easier than I thought. However, I know it can be really tricky to narrow it down and justify your choices. To help choose your perfect venue you need to know how many people you want for your ceremony and wedding breakfast to start, and then a rough idea of evening guests. But how can you make sure you've got the right people?

There are those days where you don't really want to wear too much make up and you want to just look like yourself but better. One thing I really struggle to do is find a mascara that actually helps achieve this. It's my own fault, I love long lengthening volumising mascaras. And none of that says "natural".

I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on these, but I decided to just give them a go and make up my own mind. Bourjois have a lot of new releases going on at the moment and these were the ones I was most excited about so I'm glad I did. But which side of the fence do I fall on?

I usually love red lip when it comes to bold statements, however when summer comes around I am all about the pink. Hello pink ladies indeedy. I have a lot of summer pinks, however I think I may have found the perfect bold lip pink - bold statement for a bold lipstick.

Part of me feels like I should learn how to make healthy cakes and treats, however when I look at these I just can't bring myself to feel guilty. I do love a good flapjack, however I tend to find some can be a bit dry. So I made myself some gooey versions with a little surprise...
