Let Us Talk About… Glorifying Being Busy

Soup of the day in a cafe on Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon

Everywhere I look people are claiming being busy and having a dabble with every single pot is the way to being successful and a “girl boss”. Some have said to me that keeping busy helps to ease mental health issues whilst others have openly declared being busy as a sign of strength. In fact for […]

Avon’s Luck 50ml

Bow style lid on a glass oblong perfume bottle

It has been some time since I discussed Avon’s Luck perfume, but since I first did my terribly written review in the midst of a mental health crisis (I know, what is new there eh) I have actually given this bottle its last spray and stuck it in the trash. Instead of waiting until I […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 6-10

Flamingo in front of Christmas tree design

In the first instalment of this mini series, for days 1-5, I discussed that a lot of the boxes were the navy packaging rather than the snazzy pattern but I take that all back because photographing the colourful ones is far more challenging than I anticipated… But after the variety of products that came in […]

The thoughts of “here […]

L’oreal Color Riche Nail Polish

Three nail varnishs, pink, purple and blue by L'Oreal

Doing my nails was one of the first ‘beauty’ things that I ever really got into and at 15 whilst I was never interested in anything more than some wild blue eyeshadow and mascara I was already building up a collection of outlandish nail varnish. Not much has changed except that I own foundation, have […]

Lush’s Christingle

Tub of self-preserving body product by vegan creators Lush

When it comes to skincare I am terrible. I struggle to carve out the time to use anything more than a wet flannel or a face wipe to clean my face at the end of the day, despite having a number of incredible products on hand, let alone trying to add all these extra steps […]
