Kailijumei lipstick

Kailijumei flower lipstick

My Kailijumei Lipstick finally arrived! Can you believe there’s a real flower inside this?! These lipsticks, which come in a range of four shades, are definitely some of the prettiest and most unique lipsticks I have ever seen. The clear, almost jelly-look product is full of little gold flecks with what is said to be a real flower at the base. On contact with your skin the lipstick changes to its shade. Which in my case is ‘Barbie Doll Powder’, a glossy light pink. Continue reading



Why everyone is so obsessed with Korean Beauty products

korean beauty products

Everyone is so obsessed with Korean Beauty products! And I can easily see why! It’s not that they are new on the scene, in fact Korean beauty brands have been creating break through products and starting trends for years. However, products which were originally created for Asian markets are now more accessible and in huge demand all over the world. I’ve been dabbling myself in Korean beauty products and trends for a little while now after seeing them pop up online, discovering a few great K-beauty online stores and also shopping up a storm during my Asia holidays. So, if you aren’t quite sure what all the hype is about I’m about to fill you in faster than you can fill up a shopping cart of Tony Moly.  Continue reading



Big Bucket Sale Haul – August

Big Bucket Sale Haul

I went shopping on the weekend and ended up with this Big Bucket Sale haul. The last few Big Bucket Sales I’ve been to have been so disappointing, and although this one wasn’t like the good old days I did managed to find a few goodies. I was excited to find the Batiste Dry Shampoo because I practically live off this stuff. The other products were just things that sparked my interest! Continue reading



Lush Damaged Hot Oil Treatment

Lush Damaged Hot oil treatment

The Lush Damaged Hot Oil Treatment is a new product created to help strengthen hair which is damaged from colouring, heat and excessive styling. Not only does it contain a powerhouse of moisturising ingredients including olive, avocado and almond oil, but it even has Kylie Jenner’s tick of approval (she used it recently in a series of Snap Chats sharing her pampering routine!) Although the product takes a little more work than your usual hair treatment, the results are exactly what I was after, smooth hair which feels hydrated and soft.  Continue reading



The Best Beauty Instagram Accounts

Today I’m sharing my pick of the best beauty Instagram accounts. I look to Instagram for inspiration, information and just general prettiness. I love scrolling through different accounts and seeing what’s new, what’s coming soon and what everyone is up to. Here are my favourite beauty related Instagram accounts at the moment, these are accounts I check almost each day (and sometimes several times a day) for a dose of Instagram inspo!

Maybelline Super BB & The Hyper Curl Volum’ Express mascara

Maybelline Super BB

The Maybelline Super BB and the Hyper Curl Volum’ Express mascara are two of my favourite purchases from my most recent Thailand shopping haul. I purchased both of them on a whim during one of my mega sprees at Eve&Boy. The Super BB originally caught my eye because the stand was insanely crowded by Thai teenagers who were practically ripping the product off the shelf. I decided on the Hyper Curl Volum’ Express because it was the first mascara I had seen which labelled as ‘easy wash’ something I knew my sensitive eyes would love.  Continue reading



No Buy July

Online shopping

This month I found myself unintentionally involved in No Buy July. A time of the year where people use a cute rhyme to try and stop spending so much money or ban themselves from buying particular items. I’ve never really thought to get involved in one of these month goal things because I believe if you want to do something or change something then there’s no better time than now. Also, imagine having to wait to start a goal until a month came around which you could rhyme with! But, at the start of the month without realising it, I declared to myself and a few friends that I wasn’t buying any makeup this month – and accidental No Buy July begun.  Continue reading



Feather touch brow tattooing

Feather Touch Brow Tattooing

Feather Touch Brow Tattooing is a big beauty trend right now. Like many other people I dreamt of having perfect eyebrows with minimal fiddling around every morning. I had been interested in brow tattooing for awhile but images of badly done and very fake looking eye brows freaked me out. This is what lead me to Feather Touch. It’s brow tattooing which is done not as a bold filled in block, but as small strokes to mimic individual hairs. The results can be varied depending on the individual, whether you are just wanting fuller brows or need a total brow reconstruction. After four sessions my brows are complete and looking more on point than ever! I’ve had a lot of interest and questions about the feather touch tattooing process, so today I am going to answer some commonly asked questions and let you know about my experience.  Continue reading

How I’m fixing my damaged hair

Blonde hair goals

In the last few months I decided to stop lusting over hair goals and firstly, start focusing on how I’m going to fix my damaged hair. Years of home and salon bleaching in a range of blonde, white and grey shades has left my hair pretty damaged. My mid-lengths to ends are dry, my roots are oily and I have broken hair around my ears and right under at the nape of my neck from over bleaching. By adding a few extra products to my hair routine and changing some habits I have managed to help a lot of the damage. My goal is to really work on the areas of damage so I can go white blonde for summer (and probably ruin it all over again.) Continue reading
