2 years on…

Albeit a little late as I have had a lot going on recently, just over a week ago on the 8th March it marked two years of my blog and me coming back to blogging. Continue reading “2 years on…”


Four Apps You NEED As A Blogger

Check out this really useful post by the wonderful Currently Lately – I will definitely be downloading Canva!

Currently, Lately

Hello, hello!

Happy Sunday to you all.

I hope things have been going well for you. As I’m sitting down to write this post, it’s currently cold and miserable outside. I had actually been planning to do an OOTD today, but when I looked outside and saw the weather conditions (windy, snowy, generally gross), I ultimately decided against it. I cannot tell you how ready I am for winter to be OVER.

Anyway, to pick myself up and out of this winter slump, I thought I would write a post on a more upbeat topic: apps I love.

As a blogger, I’ve discovered that having certain apps at my disposal has made my life a whole lot easier. That being said, today I want to share a few of my top ones.

These apps are pretty popular in the blogosphere. But I figure if you’re new, maybe you haven’t heard…

REVIEW | Schwarzkopf Color Mask

It was New Years Eve and I was adament that I was leaving my roots in 2017 (if it was only for another 6 weeks that is), New Years Eve fell on a Sunday so I was already at a disadvantage with the shops closing early. I wanted some cheap eyelashes and we were in Reading and although I am ok with the layout of the town, I am not as familiar as though it were Uxbridge or Windsor so armed with Google Maps I descended down one of the side streets that seemed a little dodgy but I had my boyfriend being dragged alongside me so it wasn’t too bad and we headed to Savers. That is where I found this hair dye and it was only about £4 I think so a bargain in a jam.

Apart from when I bleach it, I only ever colour my hair using Schwarzkopf but the last time I used the brand was in 2016 with the post Schwarzkopf XXL Live Colour Review (which is also my most popular blog post over the years) so I was aware they have a crap tonne of new formulas and techiniques to try out, I decided to try out the Schwarzkopf Colour Mask in the shade 910 Champagne Blonde.

I don’t think you ever appreciate good health until you are ill and you think ‘DAMN why did I take it for granted?!’ So yeah I am ill, I have been feeling blehhhhhhh since Friday evening, hence why I have been ultra quiet on my blog and social media. But I am going to take the time to whilst I am sat on the sofa feeling sorry for myself watching a Stacey Dooley documentary, to write some blog posts for the next few days.

Everyone knows by now, from how much I complain on here and Instagram, how I have  MEGA love-hate deal with my photos. I get BORED V quickly and I just feel so crap about the way they look. My Instagram algorithm is pretty bad, but I don’t have the time to spend on it to improve it… if only the summer could come around quicker so…

I have a problem, usually when I have finished one product I will always have a backup in place and then throw out the used product (that was before I started my project empties in which I am saving up all my empties from 2018 and seeing how much I use/spend throughout the year), but when it comes to Mascara I seem to buy one then throw the previous one in to a drawer never to see daylight again – some of the mascaras I am about to share with you I have had since 2014! I have thrown some of them away already, although these were repurchases.

When it comes to Mascara, I am super conscious of their short shelf life and abide by this as your eyes are so sensitive you really don’t want to mess around with them. I have clumped together the tubes in three brands – L’Oreal, Maybelline and Miscellaneous. Continue reading “THROWAWAY HAUL| Mascara”

REVIEW | Wheesht skincare

In the beginning of January, I received two items from a new Scottish based natural skincare brand called Wheesht. After a brief discussion on my skin type, Kelly, the owner sent me over a sample pouch of Moroccan Detox Clay Mask along with a very generous sized sample jar of Mango Moisture Balm Cleanser and Mask. You can use these products on their own or in combination.

Before I get in to reviewing the products individually, I really liked the packaging. The Mango Moisture Balm Cleanser and Mask was sealed with an anti tamper label for hygiene and the Moroccan Detox Clay Mask was presented in a pouch that declared what it was with the branding all over it. Through and through it was a good first impression to open up. I also love the brand ethic as 25p from selected sales will go towards providing safe drinking water in Cambodia for up to 20days.
