Hi! I recently went to a dinner and dance that had a kind of formal, shirt and tie dress code. Obviously as soon as I found out I was going I was immediately stressed about what to wear.

In the end I decided to go with the gorgeous white dress you can see in the picture.

Keep reading to see the deets!

Hey everyone! I've decided to start a new monthly feature on my blog, called 2Buy2See2Read...which basically are posts where I recommend things for you guys to read, see and buy. I know favourites posts have been in my blog before and are kind of the cult favourite, but I wanted to make it my own! Kind of like you see "holy grails and fails" or "hits and oh god no's" on YouTube.

Anyway, I struggle to find products to write about in monthly favourites so I think this little regular feature will motivate me to find new things to talk about!! I'm really excited to share my favourite things with you because I know so many people will love them too. My blog has been getting so much positive feedback and new viewers recently and I'm so proud that I'm 100% focussing on this...I really love it!

Without further ado, let us start this month's post!

A little bit of info about me!

I'm currently trying to "claim" my blog on Bloglovin' so, seeing as I have to make a whole new post just to do that, here's a little bit of info about me!

Sunday, 14 May 2017


Hello! Today I turn 20 years old, which I cannot quite believe myself. I know that 18 is like the time when you become an adult (sort of), but I feel like by 20 people expect you to kind of have your shit together. I most definitely do not have my shit together.
I'm still in uni, outside uni I am still living at home, I have a part time job and little money that is really mine and that isn't part of my overdraft.

I feel like although I clearly still have a whole lifetime ahead of me, that I have learnt a fair few lessons over my very brief lifespan thus far, and thought I'd share them

Here we go, 20 useless facts I have learnt in my 20 years of life.

Dear 13 Reasons Why,

Wednesday, 10 May 2017


Hello again!

I have a little pile of makeup that's been sitting around for months waiting to be tried and I'm finally just getting to it.

Today is a quick lil review of a natural highlighter. You know me, I love being so highlighted I can be seen from space but I really have fallen in love with this product and it's so natural and gorgeous.

So if you're looking for a natural highlighter this is definitely the blog post for you!

Hello again! I love doing these one product monthly favourites because I don't have the money to buy loads of makeup, and can just give you a quick run down on my ultimate fave over the past 4-ish weeks.

Now, as you might have guessed from my previous blog posts, I love a matte lip. I just think you can't go wrong with a beautiful, flawless matte base and a gorgeous matte lip to go with it. I'm not about the dewy skin or the glossy lip life.

However, about a month or two ago, I watched Hannah Renee's full face of holy grail products tutorial, I believe. I saw her nude, glossy lip and fell in love, which is very, very unlike me.
The product she was using was the NYX butter gloss in the shade Fortune Cookie.

So, without any more rambling, let us dive right in to this favourites post!
