My Autumn Skincare routine

It felt like the end of summer crashed down on me! One day everyone was in shorts and the next we were bundled up tight. Thankfully I haven’t had to change up my skin routine too much. What worked for me in the summer is working pretty well now for my autumn skincare. It’s always amazing to find a year round routine but I need to test it during the winter before I can make that claim! Allow me to…

Autumnal Nail Polish Picks

I’m pretty good at buying things that I need and resisting things I want… That is until it comes to nail polish. It’s an obsession where I just can’t help myself! I usually spend at least a month debating on the pros and cons of buying a new shade. And while I do pretty well at saying no, there are definitely times where I just have to say yes. And the wonderful thing about Autumnal nail polish, is that there…

NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Review

This is it guys. I might have found my holy grail foundation and concealer. NYX’s Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Full Coverage Foundation has been nothing but perfect for me since I bought it. I heard rave reviews from Youtubers and knew I had to try it for myself. I’ve been on the lookout for a cheaper and better shade to use in my makeup routine. I’m finding it so hard to justify spending so much money on makeup… Since moving to…

Current Lush Favorites

It’s been a few months since we went to Lush but we’ve finally started to use what we bought. We go through soap pretty slowly so we’re able to stockpile a few special items here and there. Here’s what we’ve been using and why they’re my current Lush Favorites! Iceshoggles Soap This one was a winter Lush exclusive so it’s no longer available for sale… But Iceshoggles is a beautiful and fresh scent that’s hard to describe. It’s got my…

Autumn Makeup Routine

Here it is, my simple Autumn Makeup Routine. It’s not fancy and it’s not amazing. It’s usually a 5 minute face. When I lived in America my routine was so much longer. I find that as I get older, I want to spend less time in the bathroom. But I do still have imperfections I want to cover. Before I apply makeup I start off with my skincare routine. I like to mix my Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer in with…

I use The Body Shop’s Tea Tree…

Lush Halloween 2018 Haul

The Lush Halloween 2018 collection has been out for a few weeks now. I’ve been waiting to tell you guys all about it! We didn’t pick up any bath items because it’s too difficult to find the time for a bath. It may be months before we used the items and they have “best fresh by” dates. Instead we went for the more practical (for us) items. Ectoplasm Shower Cream This was the first item in my basket. It’s a…

Skincare edit – The Ordinary

The thing about skincare, is that it takes time to see real results. I’ve been using a few new items from THE ORDINARY. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the brand and have been wanting to try it for a while now. It’s a no nonsense brand where the user decides on what they want out of skincare. There’s a product for every concern and it’s easy to put together an arsenal that’s personalized to your needs. I know…

My spring 2018 nail polish picks

Spring is a time of rebirth and a time of reinventing. Unfortunately for me, I’m still sick, I can’t spend time outside without being too cold and coughing up a storm. How else can I pump myself up without being able to bask in the sunlight? By doing my nails! It seems like a trivial thing, I know but there’s something about painting my nails that’s both comforting and rejuvenating. So while I can’t enjoy the spring flowers all day, at least…
