I’m doing that thing again – the thing where I convince myself that every outfit post has to have a deep and meaningful element, or some kind of insightful purpose, or just a ‘point’ beyond what I’m wearing. Beyond the fact that they probably don’t have to have those things, this seems a little rich,… Continue reading A red puffer jacket (and nothing more profound)
It’s nearly a year since I went cruelty-free now, and although I’ve tried loads of stuff that I’ve really liked, I haven’t become anywhere near as much of a cruelty-free make up expert as I was expecting in that time. There are quite a few things like blush, eyeshadows, bronzers, etc, that last ages, and… Continue reading Three things you should try from MUA
Here is a list of things I have done rather than start this blog post, which was the one thing I really wanted to do this evening: Applied some unnecessary lotions and potions to my face Edited some photos Left what can only be described as ‘fuckloads’ of comments on you lovely people’s Instagram photos… Continue reading Perfectionism; the enemy of productivity
Can I start by saying that I don’t generally remove my shower products from the bathroom and arrange them on my bed with a carefully positioned towel (usually found slung over something), a bunch of flowers (£3.30 in the reduced section of Tesco), and, inexplicably, a chopping board (lives in the kitchen, been used to… Continue reading Winter bath and body treats

I suppose in some ways, this has been on my mind because I’m going through quite a busy period; I’ve lacked the headspace for anything other than the most mediocre of posts on… Continue reading The ebb and flow of creativity

I’ve been lucky enough to go on some really great ones over the past few years - but there’s always somewhere… Continue reading A European city break wishlist
Never did I ever…think that I would write a post for the fashion category of my blog about cardigans. It’s happening though, guys; the cardigan is back and I'm actually wearing one. It’s been quite difficult to avoid them until now if I’m honest, because they’ve been all over the place for the last few… Continue reading Return of the cardigan
Lately I’ve not really felt like my best self, so I'd like to invite you to what is shaping up to be some kind of personal therapy session, because today I'm going to go into why. I highly doubt there will be a structure to this post but I suspect it could be a long… Continue reading Can I get a refill, please?
It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post, so let’s talk skincare. I’ve been dipping in and out of the Superdrug Vitamin E range for a few years now, and have always been fairly impressed with most of the things I’ve tried, but since going cruelty-free this year they’ve been one of my… Continue reading Superdrug Vitamin E skincare; what’s worth trying?
