DIY: Gel Manicure At Home - Featuring Madam Glam, New York*

Wednesday, 28 December 2016

I love having freshly painted nails, however, I am the laziest human being when it comes to the upkeep. I'm the person that walks around with chipped nails until I manage to pick it all off. However, I have had gel nails a couple of times in the past and found that this worked a lot better for me. Mainly, because it stays on longer and takes a lot more to chip them. Unfortunately, my laziness often means I can't be bothered to go to a nail salon to get them done (damn my continuous lack of energy). 

Highlights of 2016

Tuesday, 27 December 2016


I have already reflected on the year with my previous post 'what 2016 has taught me', however, due to the nature of that post, it had a little negative energy in it. As I have no patience for negativity, I thought I'd follow it up with a highlights of the year. This post contains specific days, trips and moments as well as general positives from the year! Leave your highlights in the comment section so I can have a read of yours too :)

'Tis the season for red lips and MAC are definitely known for their staple red shades. But lets face it, people can rock red whenever the heck they want to. I mean, I don't think I've seen a picture of Gwen Stefani without it... and she is beautiful (plus hella cool). Below, I have put together mini-reviews for Russian Red, Ruby Woo and Lady Danger.

Winter Skincare Essentials

Monday, 12 December 2016

I switch up my skincare quite often. I'm yet to find a strict routine that works well for me, however, I have a few 'staple' items that I tend to stick to. So, as it's getting pretty darn cold outside, I thought I would write a post on my Winter skin care essentials. 

What 2016 Has Taught Me

Friday, 9 December 2016

It may be a bit of a cliche, but I think when it gets to this time of year, lots of people sit and reflect on the past 12 months. Well, I do at least. I don't do the whole 'new year, new me' thing. I personally think that if you want to 'change' something or try something new, you can do that whenever the heck you want. However, I do try and hope that, in a year's time, I will have accomplished a few things. I will write a post on that in the new year. However, for now, I am reflecting on the past year and what (if anything) I learnt from it.

Sanctuary Spa Beauty Advent Calendar - Week One

Thursday, 8 December 2016

I love all the different beauty/skincare advent calendars that are available, unfortunately, I could not buy all of them. I've seen a few posts showing what people have got so far, which I think is really useful for choosing one next year (yes, I like to plan such important things ahead of time) and just for being nosy. A delightful human being bought me a Sanctuary Spa calendar from Boots, after I continuously moaned that I didn't have one this year. I thought it would make sense to do it in chunks, so this is the first 7 days.
