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.

It’s that time of the month again, where I chat all things beauty and attempt to justify the reasons why I’ve spent at least ten hours in April researching, trialling and purchasing a variety of different make-up items.

How To Boost Your Make-Up’s Radiance

I’ll be honest with you here, I’ve always been a sucker for high end beauty. While designer clothing has only just really reached my radar (I was never snobby about an all high street outfit), I’ve always saved and splurged on branded cosmetics – primarily because I had such troublesome skin and the more well fitting and luxurious the product, the better it seemed to look. One of my first high end purchases was the YSL Touche Éclat, a cult beauty product for over twenty years – it’s glittering gold packaging and promise of luminous radiance was enough to tempt me…

February Beauty Favourites

It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these posts, so you’ll have to forgive me. I haven’t turned my back on the world of beauty and simply not had any favourites (can you imagine), but it’s more so that I’ve been painting my so-to-be beauty room and so every single product I own has been packed away (sob!) and out of reach. However, it’s a brand new year – which spells brand new rules – and I’ll be continuing ‘beauty favourites’ as a feature for the foreseeable future. Alongside it though, I’ll also be doing a monthly…
