I am a fake tanning addict. As dramatic as it sounds I couldn’t live without the stuff. I just hate being pale and pasty and for me, there’s nothing like a bronzed glow to help me feel my best. Life is definitely better with a tan! Over the years I’ve tried so many different tans, some that leave me in a patchy mess, others that have reeked of that familiar biscuity smell so much it’s caused my boyfriend to rethink where I sleep at night and there’s those minimal few

When an email landed in my inbox inviting me to the Benefit #RaiseYourBrowGame blogger event in Leeds, I literally jumped at the chance. Over the past couple of years, brows have become such an important part of my makeup routine and I almost feel bare leaving the house without filling them in, so I couldn’t wait to find out all about Benefit’s exciting new brow launches. As we all know, Benefit are the leaders of the pack when it comes to brows. I mean, who hasn’t heard of Gimme Brow and

There’s nothing more depressing than breaking out in spots. It’s crazy how much just one spot can completely knock my confidence and ruin my day so when I finally found a skincare and cover up routine that really seemed to improve spotty skin, I was over the moon. I’ve had my fair share of bad skin days. When I was younger I suffered from really spotty skin and so I tried various different cleansers, moisturisers and spot creams without any luck until I eventually plucked up the courage to book a doctors appointment

If you read my latest high street beauty haul (catch up here) then you’ll have seen that I picked up the new Sleek Cream Contour Kit. I was so happy when I heard Sleek were bringing this out as I’d always wanted to try cream contouring but I could never quite justify the £39 price tag of the Anastasia Beverly Hills version when I had serious doubts it was going to work for me. There was just something about cream contouring that seemed much scarier than using a powder and so

A few years ago my friend and I decided to travel around Europe, ticking off as many places as we could in about 3 weeks. I always see so many people on Twitter and Facebook asking lots of questions about interrailing so I thought I’d put together a blog post sharing the ins and outs of travelling around Europe by train including advice and recommendations for those lucky enough to be travelling this year. We were 20 years old with a small budget (we were at uni where trebles and clothes

Snow last week followed by heavy rain and now sun?! What is going on with the weather? I guess that’s what we get for living in England ey. Someone move abroad with me pleaaase? It felt slightly inappropriate publishing my Spring makeup routine at the weekend when it was dull and miserable outside but seeing as today feels a bit more Spring-y and the sun has been shining, here it is! With Spring in the air, it’s time for me to ditch my fuller coverage foundation for something lighter and swap

3 day weekends are my favourites. I love having that extra day off to relax and I’m sure everyone will agree that starting the working week on a Tuesday is a billion times better than a Monday. Mondays are just downright awful aren’t they?! Yesterday my boyfriend and I decided to visit Haworth, a pretty village in West Yorkshire, to indulge in their amazing cafes, have a nice stroll up and down the cobbled streets and a browse in their cute shops.  I visited Haworth once when I was younger
