Apostle Skincare

Posted · 6 Comments

Welcome to my latest beauty shopping obsession; Apostle Online. They stock natural skincare and body products that are highly effective as well as being beautiful and luxurious – think ILA Spa, Nude, Neal’s Yard and Oskia. All under one roof! Albeit an ‘internet’ roof. As a matter of fact, if Apostle had a roof, I [...]

Grrrrr. Flannels.

Posted · 8 Comments

Grrrr. Check out these babies! Straight from Scary Spice’s boudoir, they are now gracing my new bathroom.

Kiss it Better – for children with cancer

Posted · 13 Comments

I have found this post terribly hard to write. Despite the rather playful photograph above (taken for Kiss it Better), this post is about something that has really quite heavily played on my mind for two weeks.  It should have been published on the 8th, and it wasn’t, so you can probably tell that I [...]

The Pixi Nude Shade Wardrobe

I have become slightly obsessed with this eyeshadow palette; the shadows are all so smooth that they almost seem creamy! And such a gorgeous range of nude shades – all brightening and lightening and brilliantly convenient for when you just want a quick sweep of something to cover up red, tired or unsightly lids.

This is a video of the makeup look that I’ve been wearing to castings recently. Nice and natural, just subtle enhancements rather than anything too bold!
