As you all know, I'm a huge fan of both L'Occitane, and QVCUK.co.uk – so as you can imagine, when I heard that L'Occitane would be showcasing there new collection on QVC, I was so excited.

SBC Propolis Shampoo + Conditioner Review

2 comments

I was kindly gifted this fabulous duo by SBC a couple of months ago. I have adored SBC for years, I trust their products 100%, and some of their products are firm favourites of mine. I have adored their propolis skincare gel for years, I first discovered it on QVC a couple of years ago, and ever since my first purchase I have re-purchased it countless times. Their propolis skincare gel has helped soothe my skin in the summer, when I have hormonal breakouts, and when I need a little extra hydration. As you can imagine, when I was asked to try out this fabulous new duo, I was absolutely ecstatic and so intrigued too...

Blog for yourself, not for free stuff

7 comments

For me, blogging is a hobby. But for others, blogging is a job. And for a small percentage of people, blogging is for 'free stuff'. I don't agree with this at all – blogging should not be for 'free stuff'. Keep reading to see why I think that blogging for freebies isn't good.

Acne aids from Image Skincare's Clear Cell collection

1 comment

I have suffered with spots, blemishes, and breakouts for as long as I can remember. I've never had full blown acne, but my skin has always had traits of acne. Luckily, as I've grown up, my skin has matured and dried out a little, which means I don't suffer as many breakouts as fifteen year old me did. But every now and again, especially around my time of the month or if I get stressed, my skin will break out in angry blemishes and spots....

Being original, and not a carbon copy

Dom & Ink – chic art deco twig drawings?

2 comments

Dominic Evans AKA Dom&Ink. What a guy. I have been friends with Dom ever since I spoke about his book #MapMyStyle in a YouTube video back in 2015. He reached out to me, thanked me, and then asked me for my address as he wanted to illustrate me as a 'thank you' – I was blown away, and felt to blessed. Since then, I have written blog posts about Dom, and interviewed him for my college's annual magazine. Dom is a true GEM, and I love him as much as I love his illustrations – A LOT!

Organising your outfits in advance | Surely I'm not the only one?

2 comments

Am I the only one? I organise my outfits in advance, and it's honestly one of my favourite pastimes. Yes, I'm aware of how completely loopy it sounds, and I've had a hilarious response on twitter – people wishing they were as organised as me, and people praising me for my organisational skills. It's mad because I have always been like this, for as long as I can remember in fact...

Within this post I'll be expressing how I feel as a midsize girl, as well as recommending my favourite books, instagram accounts, and ways of thinking that can help you accept your shape as a midsize girl.

I was diagnosed with anxiety almost two years ago, but I had it for around three years prior to that. I don't like to speak too much about my mental health online, and I'm not too keen on going into lots of detail.

BOOK REVIEW: NEW FEMALE TRIBES BY RACHEL PASHLEY

Feminism is something that is becoming more and more popular. Females are becoming increasingly empowered, and this is something that is taking the world by storm. From the #MeToo movement, to countless #BodyPosi advocates, the upskirting bill and so much more – feminism is ensuring that the world is a more female friendly world, a more equal world, and a world in which everybody feels comfortable and able to express themselves freely, free from objectification, judgement, sexualisation and restrictions.

The curvy girl's guide to mixing your prints | Being bold with Simply Be.

8 comments

I'm curvy, and I'm not ashamed of it. In this day and age, which is far too oversaturated with faux perfection, it can be hard to embrace your natural self. Curvy girls SHOULD NOT have to compromise on fashion, and curvy girls SHOULD NEVER feel ashamed to wear what they want, and express themselves through whichever outlet they desire. For me, I adore dressing up. Dressing up in opulent outfits, vintage outfits, bright outfits, or heavily printed outfits – I just adore everything about style and fashion, and this post exists because I want other curvy girls to feel the same....

A summer body? Hun, I've already got one!

10 comments

There's so much talk on social media that revolves around getting a 'summer body', a 'beach body' or a 'bikini body'. But I call bullshit. Although I understand fully, the desire of wanting toned abs, lean thighs and an 'instagram worthy' body – it's just a trap. A trap to ensure we buy into the diet industry, and a trap to ensure we loath our bodies so much that we feel the need to alter and change them.

When you're pale, finding makeup that matches your skin tone perfectly can be a challenge and a half. Shades that don't work well, formulations that oxidise and lipsticks that wash us out – the disasters really are endless for us pale gals!

So I took the plunge and decided to try the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation in the shade Beige Opale 008, and the results were amazing! Pale girls, you need to continue reading...

For years we are taught to be 'something' – I don't quite know what that something is, but whatever it is, we're supposed to be it. Skinny, blonde, happy, in love, curvaceous, intelligent – that something means something different to everybody. For most of our adolescence we're trying so desperately hard to be that something and in the end it can make us lose our true selves; but thus far in 2018, I've found myself, and it wasn't the something that I had once believed was my destined path...
