IMG_1888

So there I was thinking about what I should write about today, when along came the postman with this month’s Glossybox! It’s like he read my mind! This month, we’re back to the iconic pink box. This month’s box contains 5 products, 3 of which are full sized. Here’s what was inside:

NOTD: Essie Liquorice

IMG_1876

At first look, this may seem like a very boring manicure and I guess in some ways it is, but I am a big fan of dark nails and regularly wear black varnish. Recently, I purchased this bottle of Essie in the shade Liquorice on a whim, as my other black is quite old and is getting a bit gloopy.

Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation Review

IMG_1865

I was lucky enough to get myself this bottle of foundation free on a promotion Smashbox were doing last Friday, where the first 20 people to their local Smashbox counter got a bottle of foundation just by showing that they liked their facebook page. How could I say no to that?!

Yup, another tag post! This time I was nominated by the lovely Becca from Beck In A Blog, who is one of my favourite bloggers and such a lovely girl to talk to. If you don’t already follow her, you really should. Keep reading

My Birthday & Christmas Wish List

Bday & Xmas Wishlist

It’s that time of year again, where people have started asking me what I’d like for my birthday/christmas and what exactly my plans are. I am very fortunate and there is nothing I really need, so I’ve been struggling a bit to come up with answers this year. The thing that absolutely tops my list is to be working as a designer, but as this is something they can’t get for me, I’ve put together a list. Although I have cheated slightly and put some things on here which I know my mum has bought me!

Empties 3

Happy Halloween everyone! Yup, another empties post already! I’ve been surprisingly good at using up my old products lately, but I’ve also got some items in here which are just too old to still be usable. First up, the products which are actually empty!

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Hair Mask Review

Before we get started with what seems like my first product review in ages, I’d first of all like to say a big thank you to the lovely people who have responded so positively and given such helpful suggestions following yesterday’s post. I had a good night’s sleep and have woken up feeling much happier and more motivated. So thank you to the wonderful blogger community and my blogger friends for all your advice!

This is a product that you have probably seen me talk about on the blog before, although I haven’t yet done a proper review for it. I think the review is long overdue, as I have now finished this particular tub and purchased another one. That probably tells you a lot about how I feel about this hair mask! Keep reading

Is My Degree Worthless?

inbound-marketing-experience

So this is an unscheduled post (read: rant…) that I have been debating writing for some time now, but today I have decided it’s time to get this off my chest because I am deeply unhappy.

As you may be aware, I graduated this summer with a 2:1 in BA (Hons) Graphic Communications from a good university with good employment ratings in a field where there are still a fair amount of jobs going despite the recession. And yet, here I am, almost five months later, having just been rejected for yet another design job and feeling incredibly frustrated, stressed and plain old fed up. Keep reading

Beauty Haul & Spending Ban

I guess I should really call this post ‘Beauty Haul Plus Gifts From Mum’ because it also includes some items my mum picked up for me whilst she was in France last week. Lucky me! I’ve picked these bits and bobs up over the past few weeks, some of which were at a great price.

My Black Milk Clothing Wish List

I don’t think it’s any secret that Black Milk Clothing is my all time favourite clothing brand. They have such a great range of clothes covering everything from every day staples, perfect gear for a night out and licensed pieces to make your inner nerd squeal with delight. All whilst being high quality and ethically made in Australia. It made perfect sense to me then, that they needed to be the focus of their own post, and as I am trying to include more fashion posts in my blog this seemed like the place to start. Here are my top ten items, in no particular order, that I have been lusting after for some time now.

The How Much Is My Face Worth Tag!

IMG_1758 copy

I’ve been pretty bad at keeping up with my tags and award nominations lately, so I’d like to apologise about that. I was nominated for this tag by Aisha from The Beauty Linguist over a month ago now, but this seems like a fun little post to do, so here goes.
