The Dupe | Urban Decay Naked 3 v W7 In the Nude


This week on the blog I'm talking all about high end products! To kick off I wanted to talk about a new dupe for one of my favourite high end products. The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette is an absolute beauty, it has amazing rose toned nude shades that would suit anyway and it's normally my everyday pick up.

The Haul | A Mixed Beauty Haul


I was a touch naughty and did a bit of shopping! I picked up some new beauty pieces, mostly drugstore but finishing off with some Kiehl's pieces as well.

The Life Post | Just Being You



I found this and fell completely in love with this for a couple of reasons. The first is pretty self explanatory - it's just a very uplifting quote which I love - especially when it comes to self esteem. The second reason I fell in love with this is because it feels like it's me. Which means I actually quite like myself at the moment... Shock!

The Favourites | Top 10 Spring Drugstore Make Up

I'm SO excited about this video. I've teamed up with Claire from The Love of All Things Beauty and we're both doing a video showing our top 10 spring make up products. Claire is talking about the high end products, while I'm going through the drug store offerings.

The Life Post | 5 Ways to De-Stress

Stress has literally been my middle name lately. There have been some big changes at work which means I've suddenly acquired a lot more responsibility and a lot more work in a short space of time. I'm not complaining as I believe it's a great opportunity to show what I can do and you should always take opportunities with both hands - however, stress = me. Having said that, I feel like the past couple of weeks I've managed to create a few really good de-stressing activities that really work for me and I wanted to share them with you, cause let's face it, everyone gets stressed at some point or another!

The Food Post | Orange Chocolate Chip Brownies

There's nothing I like more than a Terry's Chocolate Orange. I do love me some orange flavoured chocolate. Yum Yum... *sits for a couple of minutes wishing I had one right now*. So when I was deciding what to bake this weekend I decided to add a little twist on the traditional chocolate brownies. Oh, and by the way... My brownies do NOT contain nuts. I hate nuts. I do always ask in a restaurant if their brownies have full nuts in them - otherwise I will NOT order them.

The How To | GRWM: Current Everyday Make Up

You guys seemed to like my last GRWM video so I thought I'd do another one, slightly different setting, and see what you think! I decided to show you guys my current everyday make up as I'm really liking how it is at the moment, and it's quite simple and quick to pop together on those days I'm travelling up to London for work (oh hello 5am starts). Click here to watch the video, don't forget to subscribe and give it a thumbs up if you'd like to see more GRWM/Tutorial videos!

The Review | Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liners


Lip liner is never something I thought I would need in my collection, however these little budget beauties have completely changed my mind. These products seem to be having a bit of a moment right now, especially one certain colour, which is why I decided to pick them up - was the fuss worth it?

The How To | Learning the Importance of Heat Protection

So, this sounds like a seriously, you didn't know this already, kind of post. However, I knew heat defense for your hair was important, however I kind of ignored. And when I say kind of ignored I mean I just didn't do it at all cause I couldn't be bothered. Yeah, nice one. I had my hair cut a few weeks ago and I ended up having a good four inches cut off cause my hair just felt so tired and lacklustre. I just didn't feel the love for it and the feeling was mutual. Since I got it cut I've been very into trying to keep it healthy and sort it out as I'm loving my new shorter locks and I don't want to go back into the phase of "meh, don't care, it's just hair" (yes, I know it rhymes, I'm quite proud of that). With that in mind I went out and got myself some heat protect spray.

The Life Post | Restless Leg Syndrome

Okay yes, I know it sounds completely and totally made up but I promise it's a real thing. I know it's nothing as serious as some diseases, but it's become quite a bit part of my life and honestly - it's a huge pain in the arse. I wanted to pop a blog up about it to explain what it actually is and how I've been dealing with it.

The Video Post | "This or That" Tag

I felt like doing something a little bit different with my video today and put a bit more of "me" into it! I did the "This or That" tag from Corrie's channel.

The How To | Helping Poorly Skin

So, don't get me wrong, I've been ill before and it's been worse then the past week. However, for some reason the past week has really taken its toll on my skin. Remember in my skin care routine when I said "I'm so lucky I don't get dry skin..." Yeah, can't say that anymore! My skin has gone super annoying. It's gone very dry around my nose and forehead, and it's just got very dead and dull. Not only that but I have massive dark bags under my eyes. Super fun right?!

The Favourites | Top 5 Drugstore: Red Lips


























I want to start a new series on my channel (another one!) where I talk about my top 5 drugstore products of a certain type. I've been wearing a lot of red lips lately so it just seemed apt to start with red lip sticks!

The Review | Maybelline Color Drama






















Before these I hadn't bought any new properly pigmented lip products in a long long time... So these now feel a little bit stupidly special to me (yes, I am a weird one). I saw these on Alix's YouTube and really wanted to give them a go. The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Pencils are very highly pigmented and boast a ridiculously creamy texture.

The Life Post | Top 5 YouTubers

As you may know I've really gotten back into the YouTube world this year and I've fallen completely in love with it... Today I am actually off sick from work as I have a ridiculous cold so I've literally been sat watching video after video to make myself feel better. So I thought it would be good to share my favourite 5 youtubers with you...

The Favourites | February 2015 Beauty Picks

How is it March already?! This year is going insanely quickly. February was a mixed month for me - a LOT of changes at work has meant it's going to be really busy for me over the next few weeks, but it's a good opportunity.

The Review | Budget Highlighting Blush



Baked blushes are absolutely beautiful, I mean just look at them. The way they look screams buy me to me. However, there is of course more to them than their looks! I feel like baked blushes are so much easier to apply and so much longer lasting then others I've tried, and they are also so much more natural on the cheeks as well.
