How To Spend a Night In Alone

Excuse the semi dramatic title, I couldn’t think of another way to phrase it! Last year Con was spending 2-3 nights a week away from home, and I’d kind of gotten into the rhythm of it, planning out my time and keeping busy. Now though, he’s home every night, and so last week when he…

November To Do List

November always creeps up on me, and I think it’s easy to see this month as the dark precursor to winter, cold and sunless, with little going for it. I’m quite a fan of November though, I like the way the cold seems new and exciting (it’s not quite as exciting by December), and the…

How I Made Myself (More Of) A Morning Person

I’m pretty sure my mum is out there laughing at this blog post title, because I’ve been the exact opposite of a morning person my whole life. I remember as early as seven or eight my dad forcibly removing my duvet from the bed in the morning to make me get up, I just HATE…

The Warm Toned Eyeshadow Palettes You Need This Autumn

If you’d have asked me last year how I felt about warm toned eyeshadows, I’d have given you a hard pass thanks. Now though? I pretty much exclusively wear warm shadows. Perhaps it’s the still lingering tan from the seven month summer I had this year, but I just feel like I’ve gotten the hang…

Glossier Impressions: One Year On

One year ago today as I write this, those pretty pink packages started landing on our doorsteps. Glossier launched in the UK on October 9th 2017 and the beauty world went NUTS for it. Cute branding, affordable products, millennial pink packaging, they had it all, and to say there was a hype would be an…

How I’m Choosing Happy

It sounds odd doesn’t it, to say I’m choosing happy. Like, why would anyone choose to be unhappy? Well, you’d be surprised, throughout my life I’ve made a lot of choices that have led to unhappiness. I’ve chosen to dwell on negatives, chosen to hold grudges, chosen to not be my fullest, happiest self. And…
