I paint my nails all the time. Having gone from a job where I broke my nails all the goddamn time to an office based one, my nails are definitely doing better than they have recently and I’m loving it.
It’s been a long, long time since I’ve done a proper Lush haul. This has actually been spread over about three shops, I didn’t get it all in one go, but I did purchase the majority of it at the Lush reopening event night last week. I’m not sure when I’m going to get around to using everything but I’m excited!
If you’re an avid reader of my blog, you’ll know that I’m not afraid to talk about sex – in fact, I highly encourage it. I’m very lucky in that I have a very sex-positive group of friends with which I can talk about orgasms, masturbating and my favourite sex toys. Under that category falls the Smile Makers Collection.
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.
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. I’d popped into Debenhams to pick up one of the new MAC Colour Rocker lipsticks and ended up walking out with not only lipstick, but the UD Full Spectrum palette too. Continue reading
Slut is a word that has followed me around since I first became sexually active in my teenage years. It’s rare that anyone ever gets called a slut with positive connotations.
That needs to change.
Valentine’s Day is something that sparks a number of emotions in most people, whether it be love, disdain or
pure indifference. This year I’ll be taking some time out to celebrate myself and how far I’ve come in the past year, but here are some things you can do with your day!
Ahhh, NYX. Ever since they first came onto my radar forever ago I’ve been dying to get my hands on some products. However, they seem to be in every Boots except my local one so when I went home for a few days this month to see my family for a late Christmas, I dragged my best friend into Boots so I could throw all my money at their counter.

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! My Christmas this year sucked a little bit because I worked for all of it even though I was ill af, RIP me. However later this month I’m going home for Christmas 2.0 to see my family, which’ll be nice. 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
2016 has been a year of reflection for me. On my 21st birthday I wrote an open letter 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
