    The Bourjois Eye Pencils

    I’m not going to beat around the bush here. Make-up for me these days is all about being speedy. Slapping said make-up on and looking presentable for dog walking / coffee dates. If you work from home like moi, you’ll know what I mean. I could never fathom the idea of going bare faced during the day, but the idea of carefully contouring and blending when I only have the chihuhuas to appreciate it, also seems a bit redundant. And here in lies that make-up limbo, where going natural leaves you feeling dishevelled but being made up is (dare I say) a waist of time? *Slaps wrists* So enter into my world of the ultimate speedy make-up tool – otherwise known as Bourjois Colorband Eye Pencils. You need them in your life. (more…)


    The Ultimate Travel Brush Kit


    As much as I love to travel, I’m seriously not ‘down‘ with packing. These are the times I long for a personal assistant.. am I right! Or anyone to just pack my stuff for me. Mum? It’s more the decision making that’s impossible. Just like you select your clothes based on your destination and what you’re doing, I do the same with make-up and make-up brushes. Big occasion on the cards? You’re definitely going to need something glittery and an eye liner or two. Then there’s the bold lip choices and your casual day time face, and all the products that go with it. Before you know it, you’re explaining to airport staff that your bag is so heavy due to 2 kilo’s of make-up you couldn’t whittle down. True Story. So when I clapped my eyes on this darling turquoise, animal friendly make-up brush kit, from the master of make-up brushes – Sigma – it just had to be mine. (more…)


    The Honestly Healthy Supper Club

    supper club

    My Instagram account is a mixture of adorable animals, make-up, fashion and healthy eats. The latter being one of my favourite and most appetising genres to drool over on my feed. So, when I spotted that Tash, the health guru behind Honestly Healthy was hosting a supper club that would feature her recipes, I dashed to grab some tickets! (more…)


    New to the Brow Department


    It’s kind of incredible how I’ve done a complete 180 on my brow game. I’ve gone through my fair share of awful brow times (over plucking – I was the Queen) when shockingly I must have thought they looked quite good. There’s nothing like a good ‘throw back Thursday’ picture, to get you exclaiming “what was I thinking?!” I then went through the phase of not touching my brows whilst they grow back, thinking I had to suffer their patchy state in silence –  and more worryingly, without the aid of products. Fast forward to now and I own far too many brow products than I really should admit. When you discover a brand like Anastasia( which we sadly can’t get too easily in the UK) your brow game will change. Rapidly. (more…)


    The Make-up Artist Must Have


    Every make-up artist has a few ‘must have’ products in their stash. One’s that they swear by, ones that they have to use on every client because they’re products that work. Simples. Today I’m letting you in on one of them. Embyolisse Lait Creme Concentre can be found in the make-up bags of pro make-up artists around the globe. This classically simple product has a gentle formula that’s loved by models, celebs’ and of course, yours truly. (more…)
