My Non-Surgical Nose Job with Dr Sarah Shah

Just before Christmas, I was invited to Dr. Sarah Shah’s bespoke aesthetics clinic* in Central London for a treatment of my choice to review. Upon browsing her website and reading many positive reviews, I came across the concept of a ‘non-surgical’ nose job/reshaping. “WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT?!”, I hear you ask. Well, let me enlighten you and share my experience… I have been unhappy with my nose since around the age of 11. I blame my Italian grandfather for my…

Trying Out Colourpop Makeup

You may know (because I’ve mentioned it in many blog posts), that bae spent a study abroad year in California and recently got back. He was awesome enough to let me order some Colourpop makeup to his accommodation and brought it all back for me, so I got a bit carried away and ordered a load of ultra matte liquid lipsticks, gel eyeliners and cream blushes… I wanted to try the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks mostly, because they’re so popular…

My Crazy Hair

Since starting university last year, my hair has been an array of ‘crazy’ colours, including varying shades of purple, pink and blue dip-dye, even purple and green at one point, then a few months ago I dyed it all a dark navy blue / black. I get bored quickly, and when my brown hair started growing through, I decided to bleach the roots and dye them bright blue instead of re-dying it blue/black. I had leftover peroxide and bleach powder…

Urban Decay First Impressions!

I’ll admit, I’ve never tried anything from Urban Decay before. I wish I had a Naked palette, but alas, I don’t. So you can imagine my sheer excitement when their PR department emailed me saying they’ve sent me a package to introduce me to the brand, without telling me exactly what they’d included. I was at home for an Easter holiday at the time, so when I returned to university two days ago, I frantically opened the parcel like a…

A little thank-you & a giveaway

Recently I reached 650 followers on bloglovin, and 600 on instagram, both of which I’m really grateful for (although we all know how much instagram followers fluctuate!). To say thank-you to those who take the time to read my blog, I’ve decided to host a little giveaway of a few beauty things. 

Laser Hair Removal?

Whether you’re trying to treat a lot of unwanted body hair or just a little, it’s likely that you’re tired of always waxing or shaving. I certainly am! After all, why bother if the hair is just going to regrow within a week? Of course there are ways now to get rid of hair for much longer than that, but I find myself a bit confused about the options, so I’ve never actually given them a try. Most of them fall…

My Favourite Blogs of 2015

For me, blogging was a big part of 2015. I got into blogging, and the blogging community a lot more than I did in 2014, and I’m really enjoying it. So I’ve decided to write a post sharing some of my favourite blogs from 2015 to start this year on a positive note. These aren’t in any particular order by the way, just the scattered thoughts of my brain… prepare yourself for a long list, I’ve tried to separate them…
