I seldom find a brand of makeup that doesn’t start irritating the life out of my skin after a few weeks. Being incredibly pale, I have purple and blue undertones and red across my nose and cheeks, so have spent a small fortune since my teenage years on colour correcting make up, heavy-duty foundations and concealers and various other potions and lotions. I have also … Continue reading Face Time
Having rekindled my love of nursing and helping people, a brilliant ward Sister encouraged me to reapply to study nursing at university. I had previously started a nursing course a few years ago but it was a sort of wrong place, wrong time affair.

On my hunt for all things cats, I stumbled upon this beauty on ASOS: Whilst there’s every chance … Continue reading Payday must-have: Kitty bag
My hair is absolutely my pride and joy. Whilst I often fall in and out of love with my naturally strawberry blonde locks, having a good or bad hair day can literally decide my mood for the entire day. Wind, rain and humidity are the bane of my life as my hair is naturally curly/ wavy and the slightest bit of moisture makes my hair … Continue reading Look over hair
Welcome to the beauty and lifestyle side of my blog! The topic I’m focusing on today is problem skin and adult acne and why we feel the need to pretend it doesn’t exist. Since I was around 8 or 9 years old, I have been plagued with spots, oily skin and acne. Whilst I had the hindsight to use Bio-Oil and moisturiser to help reduce … Continue reading Beauty: Clear skin taboo?
