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…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: SPRING SKIN

Fishtail hair braids, sexy lace bralets, double denim and a whole heap of highlighter. Coachella has given me some serious social media envy! Dressed to kill and flauntin’ it on Insta stories, everyone looked FAB! So, Coachella style is a little out there for the ‘real world’ (rocking up to work with a face full of glitter might not be the best move) but it’s been inspiring me to dabble in a little spring skin. I was kindly sent a little Laura Geller package a couple of weeks ago and with a four day bank holiday weekend having just passed I thought I’d give the products a whirl. I’m already…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: SKINCARE REVIEW / NEALS YARD FT. DELICIOUSLY ELLA DUO

Beauty posts have taken a back seat on my blog lately, for the main reason that when it comes to my skincare routine, not a lot changes. When I get cosmetics sent to me to try out, especially skincare, I’m always a little hesitant to slap the stuff across my chops. I have very sensitive skin, prone to redness and break-outs and with this being the case I seek skincare soothers from trustworthy and normally expensive brands like Elemis, Oskia and Clarins. If I am trying out new products on my skin, it takes a little while to get used to them. This is not to say that I’m not open…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: 2017 SIGNATURE SCENT

There’s just something about assigning a brand new signature scent to a brand new year! I love that moment when you catch a whiff of a familiar fragrance and a whole world of nostalgia comes flowing back to you. There are some scents that are so sentimental to me, they can instantly transport me to a memory or even more so, a memory of a person, it’s strange isn’t it? The start of a new year is the perfect time to experiment with new fragrances and mix things up a little. When it comes to perfume I absolutely love the hit of a bold, spiced, almost masculine scent so I surprised myself when I was…
