Simplicité Skin Care

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while now, you’ll know that SKINCARE is one of my #1 favourite things. Recently, the lovely Robin Lyons, co-founder at Simplicité, was kind enough to send me some of their end-of-year skin hydration products. Now, not so long ago, after being disappointed with my Burt’s Bees cleanser, […]

Korean Skincare 101

Hot tip: don’t ever start talking to me about Korean skincare because I literally. won’t. shut. up. I have been known to try convert most of my friends and half of Twitter, as well as all of the beauty bloggers I know. This shit will CHANGE YOUR LIFE and I’m not even joking. Korean skincare […]

Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer

I wasn’t going to review this sweet little tube that Morgan from Hyacinth Girl sent me (HI MORGAN U THE BEST). I haven’t even used a primer for a while because the ones that I have weren’t working under my Lioele Triple the Solution BB cream. But once I put this stuff on my face […]

My Korean Skincare Routine

Dear reader – this part-beauty blog, part-lifestyle blog, part-nonsensical series of ramblings usually contains pictures of my makeupped face. We all know, however, that it’s what’s on the inside that counts. While I’m not going to go full Rock DJ à la Robbie Williams, I am going to show you my makeup-less face and talk about […]

Halloween Bath Treats from Lush

The two most stressful things about Halloween for me are a) the trick or treaters knocking at the door and b) the copious amount of candy that seems to suddenly appear everywhere. I do not want to talk to you, trick or treaters, and candy – well, I don’t have a lot of time for […]

My Skincare Routine (Every Other Day)

We’ve talked about this, dear reader. On Monday I revealed (!!!) my daily routine, and today is the day that I show you a little more of my skin(care). These four products are little add-ons to the base routine, and I reach for them when my skin’s feeling a bit flatter than usual, or if […]

My (2014) Skincare Routine

N.B: For my most recent skincare routine see this post. My skincare routine has quite a few steps and this is likely to be because I’ve been heartily influenced by Korean methods – one of the first posts I read about this was Steph’s over at Misc Bliss and I strongly encourage you to have a […]

Bridal Skincare Prep & Soft Bridal Makeup Look

My friend C, who is one of the MOST beautiful, is getting married very soon. As you read this, I will likely be embarking upon a HEN’S WEEKEND of snow (!!!) and hot chocolates (!!!) and other exciting Hen’s things. It seems apt then, dear reader, that we have a little chat about bridal hair […]

Sukin Sensitive Facial Moisturiser

A little note: I know this is supposed to be the Wednesday write-up but since I’m blogging less frequently (Mon/Wed/Fri) I’ve decided to do the write-up every two weeks instead! LOTS OF LOVE XOXO Every once in a while, you come across a product that is so good that you forget how much you love […]

Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Pore Primer Essence

You might recall the haul of Korean skincare samples and goodies that Abby sent me recently. In this little haul was a tube of the Etude House Pore Ever Pore Primer Essence. I had quite a bit of interest in this fun little tube of primer in the comments, so have decided to write about […]
