How to find a skincare routine that suits you!

While I’ve certain met people similar to me in everyday life, I can hand on heart say that I’ve never met someone identical. My mum might share my fieriness, my sister might share my playfulness and my boyfriend definitely has the same vehement stubbornness (oops), but I wouldn’t go as far to say that we’re the same people. It’s our differences that make us interesting. And in terms of our skin, we’re all very different kettles of fish too.  I have dry, sensitive, red and irritated skin with bouts of rosacea and very little in the way of spots. My…

My Must-Have Summer Beauty Essentials

So, it’s official. Summer in the UK has finally arrived. And despite last week’s heatwave instigating a number of frustrated groans coming from my general direction (ahem, we’re not equipped for 32 degree heat unless we have a pool in the garden and a cocktail in hand), inside I was revelling. Are we finally away with the rainy afternoons and dull, dark evenings? Is a long, hot summer of social barbecues and ice cold concoctions at swanky rooftop bars ahead?

How to be your own Wonder Woman!

I’ve always been very hard on myself and for so long, I thought this was a positive attribute of mine. I believed that by not celebrating my successes and instead, pushing harder for more, I would motivate myself to achieve and be a better person. Tough love, as they say, is sometimes needed. However recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that while a little self-assessment is necessary, being consistently self-critical is actually counter-productive. It was a session with a therapist that opened my eyes to just how self-critical I actually am. “Don’t you think you deserve some kindness?,” I was…

How to get the golden glow for summer

Winter passes in a blur of dehydrated skin, dark smoky eyes and (for me) a whole lot of concealer. So by the time summer comes around, I’m wanting to completely revamp my make-up bag and begin to bring back the glow. Because lets face it, if there’s any season we can attempt a Gigi Hadid esque dewy look, it’s when the sun is shining. So, in case you feel the same way, I wanted to introduce you to a few of my latest dressing table additions, which are helping me update my ‘everyday’ look to something a little more fresh and…
