Non-beauty favourites: June 2017

June has been ALL about Melodrama by Lorde for me. In an age where we can pick and choose individual songs to our heart’s content, I preordered her WHOLE album. I think this is the first time I’ve ever done this - I loved Pure Heroine and the pre-released singles from Melodrama so much that I blindly offered up my money, and boy, did Lorde deliver. I can just tell that I’ll be playing Melodrama for years to come.

MAC palette of the mo'

As with many young adults that grew up with the newly popular YouTube and all of its tantalising makeup collection and tutorial videos, I have far too many MAC eyeshadows for my own good (I blame the likes of JuicyStar07, AllThatGlitters21 and DulceCandy87) Flash forward five or so years and I'm left with three or four palettes full of beautiful eyeshadows who deserve a more loving and caring owner but instead are left to gather dust.

Some beauty favourites...

My my, hasn't it been a while since I did a beauty favourites post? Things have been pretty low key around here thanks in no small part to my unemployment, so let's just say that there hasn't been much makeup worn. However, when I have been dressing up, say for an interview or a day up in London, I've been hitting up some old favourites to give me that gorgeous summer glow...

Lipgloss for lipgloss haters

I've always hated wearing things on my lips. For some reason, I find it hard to feel comfortable unless my lips are completely bare, and as a beauty lover, this has often been restricting. Slowly but surely over the years I've been able to introduce more and more lip products to my routine, but there's still one thing that I cannot tolerate, and that is sticky gloopy lip gloss.
