Five Minutes on Body Image

When I was a child I read EVERYTHING. Every piece of paper put in front of me was consumed by hungry eyes, by a mind desperate to understand how a girl should behave, smell, look. Which Tammy girl cargo pants will tell the other girls that I’m one of them, who should my favourite boyband be (Spoiler: None)

Travel | A Solo YOLO in Split

I travel. I travel A LOT. Around the UK, abroad, I spend my life on public transport and have become quite adept at entertaining myself with my own thoughts.

Review - IT Cosmetics

[This post contains gifted items from IT Cosmetics]

If you follow my forever faves Danie Vanier and Callie Thorpe, you’ll have already heard about IT Cosmetics. Their CC cream is a firm brand favourite for its light yet full coverage and I’ve been dying to give it a try. 

I feel like there’s a bit of pressure on social media to only share makeup shots that are super sleek, ring lit and a bit “out there”. I bloody love these images but I think there’s also a lot to be said for “Hello I’m 35 and I don’t really know what I’m doing but this is my face”. So that’s what I’m giving you.
