Everyday Autumnal Make-Up Looks with benecos*

Autumn is my favourite season for so many reasons; the fresh cold air, big woolly jumpers and pumpkin spiced everything. What’s not to love? In my opinion, one of the best things about Autumn is all the darker colours that start to come out through fashion and make-up – burgundy being a firm go-to of mine the second it hits October. With that being said, the cold also makes me want to stay in bed all snug for as long as I possibly can. For this reason, I like to keep my make-up as quick and simple as possible whilst…

Gym Bag Essentials with Ben & Anna*

Without pretending I’m totally enthusiastic about fitness and having a healthy lifestyle regime, I have actually started going to the gym before work. I know, I shock even myself. Joking aside, it has genuinely really helped me to feel a bit better about myself. Now at least if I eat that big pizza on a Friday night I can feel a little less guilty about it. Aside from packing the obvious change of clothes and tissues to wipe away my tears about being up early to exercise, these are some of my absolute musts that I always keep in my…

Say Goodbye to Dry Winter Skin with Hempz*

There are many things that I don’t make the time to do on a regular basis that I probably should, moisturising being near the top of that list. Regularly going to the gym is probably number one but we’re not here to talk about that today, let’s focus on one issue at a time. I’m a self-confessed procrastinator and I don’t often realise how much I’m neglecting my skin from proper nourishment until it’s too late. When Winter approaches, I quickly get very dry and irritable skin that needs some proper TLC. As the colder season is fast upon us,…

Useful Mailing Lists for the Modern Millennial

I think anyone with an email account can understand the frustration of mailing lists, particularly when you know that you definitely didn’t opt into the majority of them. With all of the GDPR laws that have now been introduced, I was holding out hope that I’d stop receiving so many unwanted emails but I swear I’m only getting more. I recently had a massive clear out of my inbox, unsubscribing to the vast majority of unwanted automated emails and it took a lot more time than I even thought it would. Although there are plenty of mailing lists that I…

Revolution x Soph Extra Spice Palette: Review & Looks

Makeup Revolution have been absolutely killing the game for a while now, particularly with their eyeshadow palettes. The lovely Soph (known as sophdoesnails), a popular British YouTuber collaborated with Makeup Revolution last year and released the most gorgeous eyeshadow palette as well as a highlighting palette. This year, she has collaborated with them for a second time and has created some lipsticks along with a second eyeshadow palette. Admittedly, I didn’t actually try Soph’s first eyeshadow palette so I don’t have it to compare the newer one to but I’ve absolutely fallen in love with ‘Extra Spice.’ To me, this…

A Tropical Bathing Paradise with Bomb Cosmetics*

I was lucky enough to have recently won a competition on Twitter which was a collaboration between Bomb Cosmetics and Skinnydip, two brands that consistently create the most gorgeous products. Skinnydip sent me some lovely pieces including a make-up bag and a matching purse with different fruits all over them (there’s a little sneak peek in the photo below). I also won a bundle of cruelty free bath products from Bomb Cosmetics that all giving off tropical vibes. This was the most perfect package to receive considering the UK has actually decided to brighten up lately. Bomb Cosmetics primarily sell…

NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette: Review, Swatches & Looks

It’s been a hot minute since I did an eyeshadow palette review, my last one being the Morphe 35O2 but I’d be pining after a certain palette for a while. It’s been around two years since this palette of rainbow colours was released along with its neutral sister so I’m extremely late to the game. My boyfriend recently jokingly challenged me to create some make-up looks that aren’t neutrals or oranges – believe me, it really is a challenge for me as that’s genuinely all I ever wear on my eyes. I decided this was the perfect time to get…
