Review: Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Fluid Foundation

Foundation is a staple tool in my make up collection, yet whilst I was a faithful user of Estee Lauder Double Wear for a long time, I have recently started to change my alliances and most recently, I’ve been swayed by Laura Mercier. I’ve read many reviews of the Laura Mercier smooth finish flawless fluid…

Food glorious food…

This past week has been particularly lovely. After a month of just taking each day as it came, not really knowing what was around the corner, Thursday onwards brought lotsย of good news! So, this post is just a snapshot of the things that have made me happy this past week Gaga was indeed only five…

The time I artraved with Lady Gaga…

In the midst of Hurricane Gonzalo on Tuesday night I met up with two of my favourite people and headed to Manchester to catch the latest leg of Lady Gaga’s Artrave tour! One of my lovely friend’s Caro, who I used to work with, booked tickets for herself, our friend Kat and I earlier in…

Let’s talk shampoo…

It’s a staple, a necessity and yet there are so many brand to choose from.. yep it’s time to cover the delightfully dull subject of shampoo and conditioner. Whether you choose to grab a bottle and go, use whatever is on the go in the shower or the latest offers in the supermarket, let’s put…

The truth.

I feel like it’s been such a long time since I just sat down and wrote. Wrote about my day, my week, things I’ve been up to, plans for the coming weeks, or simply just how I’m feeling. My blog started over four years ago, documenting my life in limbo between finishing university, discovering I…

My make-up collection

When it comes to keeping my bedroom tidy, I fall down massively. The phrase floordrobe sums me up massively. Clothes, jewellery and shoes are high in numbers and storage space is low, but last weekend enough was enough. A stern talking-to from the boy lead to a bedroom overhaul. I think I might post a…

Storing my necklaces

Statement necklaces are fast becoming a must in my daily dressing. Layered over a denim shirt, a crisp white shirt with jeans or with a simple acid wash tee from Primark, necklaces are the easiest way to dress up your look. The majority of mine, bar just one are from Primark cos they are cheap…

Nail colours for autumn

I don’t where summer went, but it appears that we are in full autumnal mood with thick parka jackets, boots and cosy jumpers making an appearance. It is also around this time of year that I begin to turn my attention to my nails.The hot pink and cute pastels go to the back of the…

Tate Liverpool: Andy Warhol exhibit

Sometimes its nice to step out of your comfort zone and do something a little different…and that’s exactly what I plan to do next month by paying a visit to Tate Liverpool to the gallery’s new exhibit, Transmitting Andy Warhol. Opening on November 7th till February 8th, the exhibition explores Warholโ€™s work in the north…

Just a little Sephora haul…

A month may have passed since my trip to Paris, but I thought I would be doing a dis-service to the blogging, and beauty community in particular, if I didn’t partake in a blogger tradition and mention my trip to Sephora. How we don’t have a Sephora in the UK yet is beyond me, however…

Ooh la laa: Paris part two

So its been a few weeks since I last blogged about my trip to the city of love and culture to see the final date of the fabulously amazing ‘On the Run’ tour, but as promised here’s my second post. Granted I was to busy dancing/singing/attempting to do the Crazy in Love ass shake to…

Five signs you are on the wrong side of 25….

Ageing can sometimes be a struggle, but the older you get ย you start to realise it’s not so bad. I mean who wants to be 21 still anyway.. The new choker trend. You remember it the first time round and rocked it well as a funky looking 10 year old at the school disco. However…
