Pillow Talk

January 30, 2017



Stop everything... THIS is the lipstick I've been waiting for my whole life! Yes, I'm being dramatic, but you don't understand how long been looking for a shade exactly like this. The best part? It comes in my favourite matte formula ever!

MAC Lipstick Collection

January 27, 2017


After sharing my top 3 favourite MAC lipsticks of all time here, I felt it'd be interesting to show you guys the full collection! MAC lipstick videos were one of my favourites to watch on YouTube when I first got into makeup and I loved putting together this little post, even though, at this rate, I feel like I'll have a little Charlotte Tilbs collection to share with you lot soon...

How I Take and Edit My Blog and Instagram Photos

January 23, 2017



Photography has been a major part of my life for most of my teenage years. I've wanted a DSLR for as long as I can remember and I was over the moon when my parents got me my first ever 'big girl camera', a Canon 600D, back in 2012. I still shoot with it to this day and I feel like my photography game has improved massively since then. 

Spring On My Mind...

January 20, 2017


Let's be honest: I'm so freaking over January. January always feels like that never ending month where it's freezing and dark outside, everything feels ten times worse, everyone is ill and don't get me started on these January blues... 

Spring is still a good few cold days away, but I've been bookmarking and adding some lovely fresh new pieces to my wishlist and baskets in preparation for the new season (it's never too early!). This spring I'll be going for a whole lot of pink, cream and a touch of light grey – basically my colour scheme year round, oops! I'm particularly obsessed with this cute mini Zara bag, this Topshop jumper (so obsessed with details on the sleeves at the minute!) and this stunning new Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the shade Pillow Talk, which I, of course, have already ordered... Self control = zero.

Empties #1

January 18, 2017



It's very rare that I'll actually finish up a makeup product, but I found myself with some dried and used up bits in my stash, so I thought I'd give you my honest opinion on them and whether I'll be repurchasing or not (biggest test to how good a product is, if you ask me). 

My Favourite Blog Photography Props

January 16, 2017



Happy Monday! To counteract the dreaded Monday blues (I'm suffering from those too...), I decided to bring you a little resourceful post!

Lately I've been making a conscious effort to really elevate my blog and Instagram photography, and I feel that the way I've done that is to invest in nifty little props that make my photos pop in a way they didn't before. There's no need to spend loads of money either, the smallest things are sometimes the ones that make the most difference and I've round up some of my favourite little bits to share with you lot today.

My Top 3 MAC Lipsticks

January 13, 2017



Aqui entre nós, os batons da MAC costumavam ser os meus favoritos da vida. Foram os primeiros batons de "luxo" que comprei com o meu próprio dinheiro e dava-me uma alegria imensa colecionar estes batons todos os meses. Porém, à medida que expandia a minha coleção de makeup, os batons da MAC foram ficando para trás e comecei a passar cada vez menos tempo nos balcões da marca. Desde aí, os batons Charlotte Tilbury tornaram-se os meus favoritos e já só quero colecionar aquelas belezas rose gold!

The Everyday Makeup Edit

January 11, 2017


Normalmente não tenho muito tempo para me maquilhar de manhã mas, para ser sincera, não preciso. Prefiro uma maquilhagem mais minimal do que um look pesadão, portanto foi fácil para mim juntar todos os meus favoritos do dia a dia, aqueles produtos que pego quase sem pensar naquelas manhãs ocupadas.

That Bag

January 09, 2017



So... Comprei uma mala nova! No início do ano passado lembro-me de ter dito à minha mãe que queria investir numa mala de qualidade, sendo que até aí passava a vida a comprar e a arrumar malas mais baratas da Parfois, Zara, etc. Queria uma mala durável de pele que fosse intemporal, e aí começou a busca.

The Nude(ist)

January 08, 2017



Deixem-me só dizer-vos uma coisa: adoro miniaturas de tudo. Mini hamburger? A minha barriga precisa dele. Mini máscara? Sim, por favor! Mini batom? Coisa mais fofa da vida. Podia continuar, como podem imaginar, mas imaginem só a minha alegria quando vi este set Marc Jacobs The Nude(ist) na Sephora há umas semanas... Nem vou mentir, larguei um guinchinho de alegria!

2016: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

January 04, 2017



Hello, first post of 2017! I realise this post is probably a few days late, but it's been cooking in my mind for quite some time now. I feel like it's practically impossible to accurately remember everything that happened in between the great and awful aspects that comprised 2016, a year I will certainly never forget. So here goes, my audience of probably three people and my mum!
