All of my beauty blog posts, including makeup reviews, hauls, and hair / skincare.

The Bloggers Hangout LFW Beauty Bar

Last Monday, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the Bloggers Hangout LFW Beauty Bar in Shoreditch. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was excited to attend my first blogging event in London. The upstairs of Beach Blanket Babylon was filled with brands and bloggers, with City Swish (pictured above) giving massages in the middle of the room! I didn’t have one myself, but it looked really relaxing. 

My favourite shampoo for curly hair

It’s quite difficult to find good hair products for curly hair that don’t break the bank. Sulphates and silicones are awful for curls, so I set out to find a sulphate-free shampoo, and a silicone-free conditioner, but most of them are pretty damn expensive. I’m a student, and I get through shampoo quite quickly because I have so much hair, so I can’t afford to spend £10 per bottle. I ended up browsing the ‘world beauty’ hair section in Sainsbury’s, which is…

Barry M Competition Win Haul! ?

The other day I was lucky enough to win a goody bag filled with Barry M products from Dorothy Perkins on their Twitter. After the awful time I had at Heathrow saying goodbye to my boyfriend (more about that in my last post), I was so grateful to come home to a load of brand new makeup waiting for me! Expect lots of Barry M reviews from me over the next month or so… I don’t buy lip products often,…

Natural Deodorant from Amphora Aromatics

I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like putting tons chemicals on my skin. I try to use natural hair and skincare products, but I’d never thought about using natural deodorant until now. It seems a bit ironic that I was using a natural moisturiser on my face, yet spraying my underarms with tons of chemicals and alcohol! Amphora Aromatics let me try out one of their new roll-on natural deodorants, which are made with essential oils and natural extracts, retailing at £4.95 for…

10 Reasons I’m a Bad Beauty Blogger

Firstly I just want to say that I’m more of a ‘lifestyle’ blogger than a beauty blogger, because I do post a lot of random sh*t on here sometimes, and I like to write about fashion, stationery and other stuff as well as beauty products… but I consider myself to fit into the beauty blogger category to some extent, and I thought this would be a bit of fun, so here 10 reasons that I’m a ‘bad’ beauty blogger… 1. I don’t…

Doll White Teeth Whitening Strips

Through the Bloggers Love Hub, I recently had the opportunity to review some teeth whitening strips from the brand Doll White. These strips are non-peroxide, which I like because I don’t want to damage my teeth or gums (mine are sensitive!). I also like the sleek packaging, and they’re individually wrapped which is great if you’re going somewhere and just want to take a few. 

5 Years of Topshop Beauty: Beguiled Lipstick

5 Years of Topshop Beauty: Beguiled Lipstick Hello! I was intending on posting this a few days ago, but figured I should spread my blog posts out a bit more! Anyway, recently Topshop celebrated 5 years of their beauty line by releasing a limited edition collection of popular products in cute rose gold packaging. I’ve never tried Topshop beauty before (shock horror), so I decided it was about time! I particularly wanted to try one of their lipsticks because I’ve…
