Not worth the hype or the price tag, but still damn pretty

If you’re someone that follows beauty releases, then you’ll know full well that there are quite a few products that tend to be carried away in a sea of excitement and then end up being somewhat overhyped. That by no means mean that they aren’t any good - most of them are still quality products but they don’t necessarily deserve the praise that they may be receiving any more than any other quality product.

If I got offered a book deal…

As is quite common these days in the vlogging/blogging community, book deals are being handed out left and right to anyone who publishers consider to have a vast enough audience. Estée Lalonde, Zoella, FleurDeForce, Deliciously Ella - I could go on for days listing the latest ‘internet celebrities’ to sign their own deal.

By Terry Crayon Kohl Terrybly Couleur Intense Precision Liner in Gold (£28.60): I never realised how ridiculously expensive this liner is, so boy am I glad that I got it in October's My Little Brooklyn Box. As you'd expect for something at this price point, it glides on effortlessly and really stays put once applied. If it was even £10 cheaper then I'd be interested in buying another shade, but I'm afraid I'm not made of money, ByTerry.

M&S - A plus sized girl's saviour

Despite the ever-improving variety of clothing on the market that caters for those who don't necessarily fit the norm, embracing fashion trends as a plus size girl has never been easy. For months I've been scouring all the stores and a good portion of the interweb to find a bralette in a size that would be able to contain a decent portion of my chest area, which granted, is a mighty task in itself.

So bad it's good

The perfect mascara is so hard to find because both our eyelashes and expectations are individual (huge shocker!) so what gives your lashes such volume that they acquire their own gravitational pull may leave mine looking floppy and extremely underwhelming. Despite this, there have somehow always been clear favourites that stand out from the gazillion offerings on the high street, but this my friends definitely isn't one of them.

I'm sick of social media and how it's f***ing up my blog.

Yep, you read that right: I'm sick of social media and how it's f***ing up my blog. For as long as I can remember, interaction has been perhaps the biggest reason for my blog's existence. Yes, I do love messing around with my camera and the thrill of writing up a cracking post, but the response and interaction that I get from readers and friends alike have always been my biggest motivation.

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...

Mid year reflections.

Every year I set myself a 'bucket list' of sorts - fifty goals varying in difficulty, commitment and theme to help me to make the most out of the twelve months that lie ahead. It's been a while since I've visited 2016's list, which happens to be neatly squashed into the last few pages of my (sadly underused) diary, so I thought it was time today to revisit and reevaluate to see how much I've been able to accomplish in the last eight months.

Give me back my leave-in conditioner: A rant

Okay, so this rant has been a long time coming and it was never something I intended to make into a blog post, but it's beauty related so why the hell not? Apparently over the last year of so leave-in conditioners have gone 'out of fashion' and have therefore been disappearing off of the shelves in a hasty fashion.
