Nowadays it is so easy to overlook the small things that hinder our confidence. Instead of trying to root them out and fix them, we cover them up. We can alter so much of our appearance without any extreme methods of surgery these days and although it’s all innocent experimentation and fun, you shouldn’t let these things define you. Make-up is magic, I hope we can all agree on that. It can hide all manner of sins like the unfortunate dark circles that have been left lingering after possibly too… View Post

  It’s no secret that fashion works in advance and sometimes to the extremes of three years. So even though we are only just scraping the edges of Spring 2016, designers are blunting their pencils ready for the snowfall of 2017. Here we are, trying to adsorb as much vitamin D from the British sun as possible before it fades behind a hazy grey cloud again; all whilst our newly DIY’s denim jackets are already going out of style. So whilst you’re sat browsing the online bible of ASOS and… View Post

Nothing makes a person feel as insecure as acne does. Having acne prone skin can make choosing skincare, make-up, or just any type of beauty products difficult. When searching for a solution in the pharmacy it doesn’t look like there are any limitations to the options we have to choose from, when actually, with an over bearing amount of choice it just makes the decision making process even worse. How can we be sure the products will actually work, aren’t a complete waste of money and won’t irritate sensitive areas?… View Post

A new camera means playing around with settings and taking plenty of test shots – hence these overly posy pictures. I want to start incorporating more fashion and personal style related posts onto my blog as they are my favourite to read/look through. I’ve been really liking these jeans recently as they are much more comfortable than tight skinny jeans and these ones have that “Mom jeans” look which I’ve been seeing a lot of. It seems a bit out of season to be wearing a faux fur coat in… View Post

  Cleanse, tone, moisturise, prime. Steps we take in a morning after waking up slightly earlier than we were ready for, and this is before we have even started to apply our daily face of make-up. As females we know the struggles of make-up on a day to day basis. I’m not sure whether we wear it it’s just because it makes us feel better about ourselves, or that we look more put together with an evened out complexion and longer eyelashes, or whether it has just become an expectation… View Post

Something that I put a lot of pressure on myself about is how I don’t really have a life plan anymore. When I was growing up I thought I had it all figured out and a plan for exactly what I wanted to be/do with my life. I wanted to move to London, do a Fashion Design degree and become a Fashion Designer. A broad goal for someone so young and I didn’t really lay down the exact steps to get there. This didn’t matter anyway because when it came… View Post

Experimenting with appearance is common among teenagers and this wasn’t any different for me. I’m not sure if it was due to being unappeased with the way I looked compared to others or the fact I found it fun to try out new things. In all honesty, it was probably both. Teenage years allow you to do crazy things like wear blue glitter under your bottom lash line, dye pink sections into your hair, or even wear the wrong colour extensions. Yep, I did all of those things. It’s all… View Post
