Bring Me The Horizon: Manchester Arena

Okay, big breaths. It may have been a week since the best night of my entire life (squeals) occurred, but that doesn’t mean I’m over it. After waiting ten months, I surprised Jay with tickets for one of our favourite bands: Bring Me The Horizon. To those of you who haven’t heard of the notorious, Sheffield-based band,…

Urban Decay ‘Naked Flushed’

John Lewis Clearance, you really did outdo yourselves. Okay, so it may have been a little chipped (photos are from day of purchase) but with it came a meaty discount, so I can’t complain. So let’s review! Bronzer: In short, this is my new go-to bronzer. It’s natural tones remind me of Benefit’s Hoola bronzer,…

MAC ‘Soft and Gentle’ Highlighter Review

Highlighter, love it or hate it. It’s the new craze in the beauty world. Strobing, contouring, you name it. You’ll need a highlighter. As a novice in this department, I went on a long and painstaking trip to Selfridges to learn the tricks of the trade. In MAC, I really did fall, head over heals,…

Chilango Manchester

It’s a Wednesday morning. Still recovering from the Lakes, we decided to relax for a day in Manchester City Centre and grab a bite to eat (and find a holiday!). Needless to day that Oxford Road never fails to impress us with its diverse and truly delicious cafes and pubs. Two minutes from the station,…

London | Shoreditch Street Art

Last weekend my boyfriend and I ventured down to London in a very anti-tourist day out. We spared the Palace and London Eye bullshit and opted for independent galleries and cafes. Like I discovered in Amsterdam, East London is renowned for its beautiful street art, a lot of which I was lucky enough to witness…

The Victorian Woman: Tess

‘Tess of the D’Urbervilles’. A rush of thoughts about my A-Level experience come flooding back. Terrifying how one book can captivate emotions from your entire life huh? Last week, I decided to reread possibly the most controversial novel ever written. Tess of the D’Urbervilles explores sex, love and passion, in a constricted manner. This post…

I’m back today with a review from ‘The (lovely) Art of Ogygia’s Hair Bows’, it’s been a while since I had a proper review on here, so I figured, why not now? I was brought together with The Art of Ogygia a few weeks back, and she was kind enough to let me review some…

Smashbox Prime Time Review

I do love a good review! Today I thought I would share with you Smashbox’s Prime Time Primer. I got this in their beginners powder foundation set, amongst other brushes and powders (which for £49 is honestly incredible). Let’s get on with it, shall we? So, the good… I found that my foundation lasted much…

Nail Wrapz Review & Tutorial*

Remember these beauties from my OOTD earlier in the week? I said I would get on to my review of them! I love painting my nails so so much, always. I remember in High School I would constantly be sent to get the nail varnish remover, but that didn’t stop me! Luckily, I’ve graduated from…

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation Review

Today I’m sat in a café, sun beating down, writing blog posts, in my ripped jeans and docs, sipping my Starbucks smoothie, listening to The 1975, feeling very tumblr-esque… Hope everyone else is having an equally good day! Back to the blog… Another (& my final) Rimmel Foundation review, I promise! I just love the…

Chanel Waterproof Mascara Review

My nails seem to be matching the product for once! Here we have the €$¥%+!%! holy grail of mascaras. Y’all know I love my Benefit one to bits, to absolute pieces but if I’m honest, the no match compared to Chanel! So, it’s waterproof, it lasts all day, it gives you lashes which will genuinely…

Urban Decay Naked 2 Mini Palette Review

First of all, I would like to thank my friend Em for getting me this palette for my birthday. She knew I really wanted it but there was no way I could afford it, it was the perfect surprise for my birthday! It is of course, the Naked Mini Palette from Urban Decay! So this…
