In the summer, I tend to become a lot more self conscious of my pale skin. I’ve actually been known to have paler skin than my ginger best friend. Yes, really. That’s how pale I am!
When I was a teenager, I went through the standard rite of passage of using a tinted lotion to build up a tan. However, I’d somehow end up streaky and with strange orange lines around my forehead. The thought of having a fake tan sounded good to me, but I never dared do it myself in case I did it wrong again. Until now, that is! View Post
I’ve seen a few variations of this tag floating around, but the general jist seems to be that you answer 25 beauty related questions. You then think of 25 questions and tag other beauty bloggers to answer them! While I’m not primarily a beauty blogger, I do occasionally blog about beauty products (including these reviews on Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick and Benefit’s Roller Lash). I love blogging about beauty, I just don’t feel I’m good enough with beauty products to blog about them all the time! View Post
When I visited Bluewater a couple of weeks ago, I went to buy some of my usual makeup products that I was running low on. While I was browsing, a sheet mask caught my eye. It’s a hydrating mask, which I thought could possibly help my dry skin. My skin has also been very dull of late; one of the things that has changed since I’ve become a mum is that skincare has gone out of the window!
Yesterday evening, after two days of intense spring cleaning, I thought I deserved a treat. I spotted the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask in my drawer and thought “Why not?” Besides, my skin has been feeling even more lacklustre since we went to London last week. I always feel like all the pollutants have an effect on it! View Post
Today I’m treating you to two blog posts, because yesterday I was nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award. I’d like to say a huge thank you to A Mindful Geek for nominating me. It means a lot to know that someone is enjoying what you write and thinks you deserve recognition for it. View Post
I used to enjoy watching L.A. Ink and Miami Ink when I had channels they were available on. To some extent, I’ve followed Kat Von D ever since. I love looking at her clothing, makeup and tattoos on social media, as well as her adorable cats! When she released a makeup range a few years ago, I loved the look of the products! Part of the pulling power for me was the gorgeous colours and ranges, as well as the fact that her cosmetics are vegan and paraben free. Animal cruelty is something that is always at the back of my mind when I’m purchasing new makeup and I also am growing increasingly concerned about using parabens. When some of Kat Von D’s range was finally released in the UK in September 2016 in Debenhams I was delighted! I purchased a ‘Studded kiss’ lipstick in Motorhead, as well as the London Calling limited edition set (which is no longer available). This contained mini versions of Tattoo Liner in Trooper, ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick in Double Dare and ‘Studded kiss’ lipstick in Lolita.
Today I’m reviewing the Double Dare ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick.
