Skincare picks for blemished and spot-prone skin

Leave a Comment


I've had spot-prone skin ever since I can remember and it can be a real pain. Ever since I was around 12 my skin has had constant, erratic outbreaks of acne, black heads, white heads and yellow heads. Spots are annoying - whatever shape, size or form they come in, the bottom line is - they're annoying! Luckily however, my skin has been behaving itself lately and I'm pretty sure it's down to my current skincare routine. If you're suffering with spots or spot-prone skin; if you're on the look out for some new skincare additions or maybe if you've tried and tested every spot remedy on the shelves at your local drugstore – keep reading to discover my holy grail spot clearing gems...

Turning Twenty... a reflection

12 comments

I'm turning twenty on September 4th and I honestly cannot believe how quickly I've grown up. It only seems like yesterday that I was at Primary School and now I'm off to University!? Where did the time go? In the twenty one years that I've been walking this earth, I've learnt an awful lot. An awful lot about myself and an awful lot about who I want to be. It's only now that I'm actually coming to terms with who I am and what I want to do with my life and I couldn't be happier with how things are falling into place...

Why body shamers need to shut up

Body Positivity is something we all need to take on a little more; it's also something that others need to take on a little more. When I refer to the 'others' I'm talking about the body shamers, the judgemental men (and occasionally women) who decide to take it upon themselves to advise, judge and bash others for the way in which they look.

Spring/Summer makeup look | A full face of Too Faced Makeup

Spring/Summer is my favourite time of the year for sporting a natural makeup look with a pop of fruity freshness. A luminous base, natural eyes, bronzed and blushed cheeks with a bright poppin' lip - this is by far the best way to create the perfect summery makeup look that lasts all day long, doesn't look too bright and encapsulates the way we want to feel when the sun is shining brightly.

Is the fashion industry broken? | Ulrikke Høyer sacked by Louis Vuitton for being "too big"

Interview with Megan Jayne Crabbe AKA bodyposipanda

Among young people, body positivity is a growing concern and a concern we need to tackle much more than we are at present. Our generation has been exposed to media and the unrealistic beauty ideal much more than the generations of our parents and grandparents. Self-hatred and self-loathing isn’t a physical condition, it’s a mental one and we need to start changing and altering young people's way of thinking...

Unlike any other student magazine that I know of or have stumbled across, Tag 2017 breaks boundaries in delivering exciting, unique and thought-provoking articles. From speaking with one of the most well-known body positive advocates, to interviewing music stars across the world, investigating cartoon conspiracies, covering various sport stars and interviewing men who wear makeup on a regular basis - Tag 2017 really is a magazine that I'm proud to say I've worked on.

Tangible writing is always a winner in my books

14 comments

Aside from clothes and makeup; stationery is a big love of mine. I hoard it usually but I'm starting to hoard even more of it due to starting University in September. Being a blogger and a student (and a female in general) means I get through A LOT of notebooks. Notebooks are my life. I LOVE scribbling down notes, notes about everything and anything. Whether I'm taking notes about cool outfits I see somebody in, ideas for an upcoming song I may be wiring, blog post ideas, lecture notes at college or just one of the thousands to-do lists I write in a week - writing for me is therapy, no matter which form.

Latest trend: Gingham

12 comments

Gingham is something that most British girls have worn at least once in their lifetimes. From the 1900s onwards, Gingham was commonly used as a material for young girls' dresses and school uniforms. I can remember absolutely loving my school summer dresses, I had both Blue Gingham and Red Gingham Summer dresses and I adored them all so much. Gingham frilled socks, gingham scrunchy hair bands, gingham dresses and gingham ribbon - Summer school uniform was mainly gingham! As I grew up, I dismissed gingham as it just reminded me of school uniform, but in recent years, gingham is becoming a trend and a trend that I for one am absolutely besotted with.

Myself and my mum, you may know her as 'Mummy Quirk', are incredibly close - we always have been. We get on so well and in many ways, we are more like best friends rather than mother and daughter. My mum actually helped me put this gift idea post together as I thought it would be nice to get her take on what she'd like for this special day and also what other mothers may want or appreciate receiving this year.
