Review | Laneige BB Cushion Dark

It is tough for a woman of colour when she wants to buy any kind of base makeup. I learned a long time ago that I cannot rely on cheaper brands like Rimmel, or Revlon. Instead I’m limited to higher end brands like YSL, Estee Lauder, Chanel or if all fails Mac. Even if a brand…

End of Year Asian Beauty Haul

Whoo! Finally it’s all here, my last big shops from RoseRoseShop & RubyRuby76 for the year mixed in with a few lovely gifts from nice people. It doesn’t look like a lot, but I’m not working right now, so this is a lot for me!

Battle of the Japanese Sheet Masks.

Check out this skincare haul! I was very lucky to have a friend come back from Japan and be kind enough to pick me up a few things. The only thing I specified was the lotion (love it, review later), and I told her to surprise me with sheet masks! Surprise me she did! I’d…

Skincare Addiction: Cleansing

I’m going to preface this by saying  I am in no way an expert or a medical professional. This is a result of me doing research on blogs, Wikipedia and any medical journals I can get my hands on to understand what is happening with my body. This is all my personal experience, not a how-to…

My Skincare Addiction.

Before we get started, I feel like I need to explain something about my personality. I get really into things, and have a highly addictive personality when it comes to collecting. I absolutely adore sets of things, miniatures of things and sets of miniatures of things (-squee!-). Take a look at my stationery collection that has…

Mini UK Skincare Haul.

I had a bunch of errands to do today, so I decided to check out what skincare goodies I could pick up at the local pharmacies. Poundland: I found these Hydrocolloid plasters that were the perfect size at super affordable prices. I only bought the red pack as my whiteheads are quite small. Boswells: They…

Oil Cleansing Method. Ehh, it’s alright.

When I first heard about the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) I thought it was a little crazy. Washing your face with oil? How does that help at all? My skin was combination/oily and even though I heard it could help with that I wasn’t in the least bit convinced that it could work for me….

Font Glasses. A whole new meaning to the word Typeface.

When you spend enough time around anything you begin to have favourites. Even when working in a retail environment, I would have a favourite section, or a favourite wall and it would make me happy when it was looking just right. Typefaces are no different, the more you play around with them the more they…

Review | L’Occitane Almond Shower Range

I’ve been meaning to write this review for a whole year, it’s been sat in my drafts since January 2014 after six revisions. Talk about putting off a review! It wasn’t till my cousin came to visit last weekend and we went shopping specifically for one of the products that I remembered how much I actually…

Lip Armour for the Winter season

It is so cold outside, apparently this happens every year but it sounds so absurd that I doubt my source. Blah, I hate cold weather, I hate how wrapped up I have to be. All the colours for the season become seriously muted, everyone is rushing more so than usual because hanging out in the…

How to fix your nails with teabags and glue.

Howdy all! I was really unlucky in having both of my thumb nails break right in the middle of the nail bed. I have no idea how that happened. I only even noticed when I had them caught on something. Plasters were too awkward and the special finger bandages made everyone think I was leper,…

You are more beautiful than you think.

  Dove have had a lot of hit and misses when it comes to their advertising campaigns.  They challenged societies idea of beauty with their, ‘Real Women‘ campaign and then got a lot attention for retouching some of their adverts. Whoops. Then they released a Photoshop action which was supposed to undo all the retouching,…

Clinique 3 Step Method

I have combination skin and it is really annoying. I’ve used Nutrogena’s pink grapefruit scrub for a while now and it’s been great, except now it isn’t working. I follow a pretty strict facial routine morning and night, don’t wear a lot of makeup, but still my skin is oily! I thought maybe makeup might…

Toni & Guy : Follow Up

After the worst possible customer services I’ve ever recieved I was urged to contact their head office directly. They replied promptly and they actually followed through which was nice. I mean I’ll never go back there, at least not any time soon. But maybe I will go back at some point. This is customer services done…

Toni & Guy

I had an appointment with Toni & Guy but then it fell through. I cancelled the appointment, tweeted about it and then I was contacted by their Twitter Customer Services. This is what I sent to them, let’s see what happens next?  I recently tweeted about a poor experience I had at one of your stores and…

Pretty

I seem to post a ton of pictures of my nails and I never really discuss my nail colour, care etc. That’s because I’m super sloppy with my nails and I’m fickle with colours. Since my stay in Seoul where makeup was stupid cheap, I have a ton of colours that I played with. The…
