2017, Plan of action

Ah 2017. I do realise we are now into the second week of this new year however I took a blogging break for pretty much all of December and the beginning of January due to personal reason (see previous post) which meant that writing about beauty products, clothes or anything really just wasn’t exciting me in any way, shape or form. Sitting down and writing felt like a task and…

The Highs and Lows of 2016

In my head I had this post down as a really positive celebration of the year that was 2016 then the 14th of December hit and (this sounds dramatic) my life and view of what is valuable in life changed. On this day I got a call from my dad to tell me that the family home that I had grown up in and that my dad had lived in…

The importance of a smear test

“…isn’t sore, it is slightly uncomfortable but with deep breathes and relaxing you are fine. It will be over before you know it.” Talking about your vagina may make you cringe a little bit, it may even make you feel uncomfortable but it is hugely important. How do you know what is normal and what isn’t without open discussion? This thought came to me a few weeks ago when talking…

Lusting: December

It is December! Can you actually believe it! I have said it before and will say it again, 2016 has bloody well flown past.

I always feel so redundant! December is the month…

Sali Hughes at Waterstones West End, Edinburgh

“She was witty and came across eloquent and intelligent throughout. She talked openly and honestly about the role beauty products play in our lives and the negative perception from certain individuals.” Sali Hughes has become one of my favourite columnists in the last year due to her straight talking, matter of fact writing where she presents her opinion and argument succinctly. When tickets went on sale in late October for…

Things that make me happy

“With this thought in mind, I carried on with my makeup and started to think about the different things in life that make me happy. Simple, possibly but important I think you can agree.” You know how sometimes you realise while doing something in your day that you actually really enjoy it? I had that moment the other morning when I was layering on my black kohl liner, the thought…

The Body Shop Black Musk

Fragrance isn’t something that excites me all that much. I am a firm lover of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique and am partial to some Elie Saab Le Parfum but apart from that I’m not fussed. You will note that both Classique and Le Parfum are not the most affordable fragrances out there in fact they come in pretty pricey so I like to save these scents for special occasions and…
