THE BEAUTY EDITION: BIRCHBOX x VOGUE

Let me set the scene for you. Six women, one marketing office and some hot off the press news coming in our way. This can only mean one thing; shrieking! (and lots of it). When the email of dreams pops into Outlook with the title Birchbox x Vogue, we know immediately it was a collaboration worth celebrating. You may have seen the Instagram Stories I decided to bombard you with from the pop-up store they beautifully and cleverly organised on the very stylish street of Carnaby in London. It was total bliss! I’ve admired Birchbox for years, even outside of the workplace and having signed up to the…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: GLOSSIER HYPE AND HAUL

Hands up, who’s aboard the Glossier train? No doubt we’ve got a packed out carriage, right? When Glossier announced they were coming to the UK we all freaked. Girls, guys, make-up enthusiasts alike, all patiently awaiting the beauty drop of the year. I don’t know what we were more excited about, slapping the stuff on our faces or our Instagram pages. From product to packaging, the brand is a total bloggers dream. Rightly so, I’ve seen tonnes of pics all over social media. Safe to say it’s been a Glossier haul galore. Naturally, it only felt right to throw in my two pence. I made a small…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: PINK TO MAKE THE BOYS WINK

‘Choose to shine’ I step out of my style comfort zone about twice a year. When it comes to day-today dressing I’m your average t-shirt, jeans, eyeliner flick and red lip kinda gal. Nothing more, nothing less. Throw in a pair of trainers and I’m ready start my day. It’s easy and it works! Stepping out of the familiar stemmed from a little attention I received from a rather vibrant orange number which you can have a peek at on the ol’ gram here. I recently had an occasion to get all dolled up so I decided to take it. I was off to the dance the night away to childhood favourite Kate…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: HELPFUL TIPS FOR SHORTER HAIRSTYLES

Going for the chop was one of the best decisions I’ve made this year. Initially, I had that awful fear that shorter hair wasn’t seen as ‘girly’ or ‘pretty’ but I was so wrong. Skipping out of the salon with a head full of the cutest, bounciest curls I realised that a shorter hair style added some serious volume that I was so desperately lacking! Not only did a new haircut welcome a few compliments from friends and family, it gave me a much needed confidence boost, I felt instantly ‘cooler’, my outfits had a new lease of life and ultimately all that slapped a smile right across my face!…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: THE TEN MINUTE MANICURE

They say honesty is the best policy, with that in mind I’m going to share a beauty shamed secret with you. I’ve NEVER cared for my nails. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I make that declaration. Who wants to come forward and fess up too? It’s likely that I spent my early 20’s with a constantly chipped manicure and do you know what, I always blamed the product. ‘This polish is crap’ I’d protest! Trying brand after brand and never satisfied with the result. Little did I know the problem was with me and my lack of knowledge. Up until working within the beauty industry there’s so…
