Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Palette First Impressions

Happy Sunday! Today I have a lot of studying to do, reading for my lecture tomorrow, and I’ve decided to bake some cupcakes with the kids I tutor next door, because it’s their birthday tomorrow (they’re twins). However, I’ve found a little bit of time to play with my new makeup… I recently won a Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette, thanks to the lovely Emma Inks, which arrived this week. I’ve been at uni and work all…

Beauty Treatments I’d Like To Try

Micropigmentation / Microblading I’m lazy AF, so the idea of having perfect filled-in eyebrows when I wake up is the dream. I’m not completely sure whether to go for micropigmentation or microblading, but after I saw that Bethan Leadley (musicalbethan on YouTube) got hers done, I want them! I’m currently trying out Wunderbrow, but it’s very messy and difficult to use. Damn these patchy eyebrows. Laser Hair Removal I’ve written about how I got to try out laser hair removal…

How I’m Improving my Hair

Recently I’ve been trying to improve the condition of my hair, and it seems to be working somewhat, so I’ve decided to share some of my tips on the blog. I’m not a beauty writer by any means, but this might be useful to at least one person! I have horrendously unruly curls, which means that washing my hair is a nightmare, it takes hours to dry but I can’t use a hairdryer (yes, even with a diffuser) and moisture…

Deciem: The Abnormal Beauty Company

Everyone and their Mum have heard about Deciem’s ‘The Ordinary’ skincare range by now, and I must be the last blogger to write about them. I bought myself several of their products a few months ago, but I wanted to try them all out properly before writing a review. These products are insanely cheap, but that does not reflect their quality by any means. You’ll need to do a bit of reading before choosing what you want, creating the perfect…

New Hair, New Me, with Rush Hair Enfield

New Hair, New Me, with Rush Hair Enfield On the day before I started my new job last month (at the Tower of London!), I was invited down to try the new Rush Hair salon in Enfield. It had been around 3 years since I last had a haircut, because I’ve had a lot of bad experiences in the past with hairdressers who don’t know how to deal with curly hair, but as Rush Hair are very popular and well-respected…

Laser Hair Removal with New York Laser Clinic

Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to try out laser hair removal with the New York Laser Clinic! I went down to their Baker Street clinic two weeks ago for a consultation with a test patch, followed by the first treatment a few days later. I’ve only had the first treatment out of four, so I can’t say much about the lasting effects or regrowth yet – I’ll make sure to update after I’ve had all the treatments – but I…

My Everyday Makeup

I uploaded a video to my YouTube channel the other showing my everyday makeup, in a ‘get ready with me’ format, which was fun to film (albeit a little scary to show my bare skin!!). I’ve decided to share my everyday makeup on the blog too – any excuse to take pictures of pretty makeup packaging, am I right?! I like to switch up my eyeshadow and lipsticks, but I do have a couple of staple products that I use…
