Bumble And Bumble// Bb Straight Blow dry Cream

When it comes to beauty, there’s not much I love more than spending my time at dressing table perfecting my make up of the day. The same cannot be said for my hair.

I have never enjoyed styling my hair. Having been plagued with frizzy hair all my life, blow drying, straightening and styling my hair feels like nothing but a chore to me. Hence why you’ll see me with my hair scrapped back in a lazy…

Face Of The 1940’s// Pin Up Beauty

Face Of The 1940′s// Pin Up Beauty

20140418-185820.jpg

A well hidden secret of mine is that I am a bit of a history buff and I find the 1940′s a really interesting period. Beauty was such a powerful thing for women, even during the times of rationing. Women would adorn beautiful head scarves in the factories, use tea to dye their legs, as stockings were in short supply and red lipstick was even supplied to British army nurses to boost morale.

 Day One// A sunday perfectly spent on Margate harbour, having BBQ food and coffee followed by vintage shopping in the old town. Although we didn’t actually pick anything up, we checked out some new stores that have popped up on our door step.

Foundation Friday// MAC Studio Fix Fluid

20140417-150241.jpgToday marks the beginning on Foundation Friday. 8 weeks of foundation reviews, every Friday, to prepare you for your next foundation purchase. Not because I think you should wear the ones I’m suggesting, but because I know how horrible it is trying to find the right one for your skin type.

So lets kick of Foundation Friday with a bang. MAC Studio Fix Fluid is a foundation that took me some time…

20140417-141103.jpgToday’s face of the day is inspired by my funky new glasses. After attending the Specsavers Fashion Showcase, I was lucky enough to receive some new glasses thanks to Specsavers. I picked up these Karen Millen frames in store and am so happy to finally have updated my look.

Border lining geek-chic, these cat eye frames are such a great accessory to any outfit and work really well with most…

Let’s rewind back to 2 years ago and my skin was a state! Bad skincare followed by very harsh blemish treatments left me spottier than ever and at a loss of what to do. I felt like the cosmetics industry had completely let me down. Products aimed at blemishes actually made my skin even spottier. What was I to do?

I decided one day to take things back to basics and use a gentle cleanser, toner…

Face masks; you’ve probably gathered that they are not my favourite beauty product. Although I enjoy using them, I rarely find one that makes any real difference. On my quest to find the perfect face mask, I picked this up from Soap & Glory, the No Clogs Allowed Super Self Heating Mask. Designed to apparently deeply detox the pores, this is designed for oily, congested skin.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser

20140410-110645.jpg

Exfoliating is changing quite rapidly in the beauty industry. As old fashioned, grainy exfoliators are being shown to be too harsh for the skin, acid exfoliators are becoming more popular.

Nip + Fab have jumped onto that bandwagon with a range called Glycolic Fix. I was lucky enough to get my hands onto the daily cleanser and have been using it regularly since. Described as being a foaming…
