Lush Portsmouth Reopening VIP Event

The Lush in Portsmouth recently closed for a long, long month for refurbishment to both extend the store and generally improve the layout andd I received an invitation to their VIP reopening event the night before the store officially opened again on March 24th, 2017. At the event we received the chance to make products, eat some lovely vegan canapes by Hungry Herbivores and drink some prosecco – always a bonus in my eyes.

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Review

I’ve always been a fan of Urban Decay. The first eyeshadow palette I ever bought back in 2009 was the Book Of Shadows Vol II palette and I haven’t looked back – the only proper palettes I’ve ever owned in my life have been either Urban Decay or Morphe.

Recently I’ve been getting really into bright and weird makeup and was after the NYX Ultimate Brights palette, but my Boots has only just got a NYX counter and the eyeshadow range consists of exactly three palettes, which is disappointing to say the least.

What I got for Christmas – 2016

I’m way late with this post this year, I know. It’s not even Christmas this more, we’re already five days into the new year, somehow!

This year we all decided to post our presents to each other so I had things to open on Christmas morning – well played mum, thanks xoxo. Anyway the part you’re all interested in: here’s what I actually got! Continue reading

6 things I’ve learnt in 2016

2016 has been a year of reflection for me. On my 21st birthday I wrote an open letterΒ to my 20-year-old self detailing just how hard the last twelve months of my life had been and it still stands; 2016 has been a difficult year. While I’m still dealing with the consequences of some very bad life choices, for the first time in about three years I can say I’m in a pretty good place right now – at least much better than I have been for a long time, and I have 2016 to thank for that. What else has this year taught me though? Continue reading
