June Favourites

Another monthly favourites; that's come around quickly! It was actually quite difficult to narrow down my favourites for June since I fell in love with quite a few products. But I picked five, so let's do this thing.

Kiss Air Candles

You can never have too many candles, and if someone tells you that you can, get rid of them, you don't need to deal with that kind of negativity in your life. I've hoarded candles for as long as I can remember; I love that candlelight changes the ambience of a room whilst filling it with a gorgeous scent.

Personalised Chocolate with Morse Toad

My favourite things are makeup and chocolate, in no particular order; so I was more than willing to give Morse Toad a go when they got in touch.

Medication Made Me Say It

I've said quite a few hilarious things when I've been slightly off my face on prescription drugs. This is completely different to my Brain Fog series, because brain fog happens on the daily, and here I'll be sharing silly things I've said/done when I've taken really strong medication and the effects it has on my thoughts.

Buff & Butter Essential Oils

Since writing my post last month on oil diffusing, I've really become quite obsessed with essential oils. Then again, it's not only me, my boyfriend is pretty impressed too; he lights the tea light in our oil burner or turns our diffuser on more often than I do. I think we will both freely admit that we're fans.

Makeup Geek Eye Shadow Pan Haul

A few weekends ago Beauty Bay did an offer where all Makeup Geek products were half price. I pretty much praised the heavens and decided it was the best time to make an order. Only a few days previously I composed a list of shadows I needed, so it was fate really.

Series of Firsts: First Kiss

I'm starting a new series over here on my little corner of the internet, called Firsts. I'm always very open and will gladly share all most things, so I thought it'd be good to write about my first experiences of certain events/milestones etc. And what better way to kick this off with an embarrassing tale of my first kiss...

Scope's #30toWatch - Nobody is 'too pretty' to be in a Wheelchair

Last year I wrote a post about being disabled and wearing makeup; I never thought it'd get as much attention as it did because I was simply expressing my views on how society judges disabled people that choose to put cosmetics on their face. I knew it was as issue, I knew a lot of my disabled beauty lover friends had also dealt with negativity, and I wanted to address it. You can read my original post here if you like.

A Pale Girls Dream: The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Lightening Drops

I never complain about being pale, I'm very happy looking like a cute ghost; but what does annoy me is the lack of really fair foundations available. The majority of brands seem to have no idea that us milk-bottle-coloured people wear makeup and we want our face to match the rest of our body. It's so tough finding a foundation that is light enough, and to be completely honest, I don't think I've ever found a perfect match.

7 Ridiculous Things I Did As A Kid

Do you ever remember something you used to do as a child and think, 'what the hell?' I'm not talking about believing in Santa, or thinking monsters lived under your bed; I mean random stuff that only you did, that now looking back, you realise just how bizarre a kid you really were.

Buh Bye Negativity: Cutting out Toxic People

How many times do you give a person, 'one more chance'? Why do you keep forgiving them when they let you down? Why are they part of your life if all they do is cause hassle, stress, emotional turmoil?

Skincare with Indeed Labs

When I got this package, I have to say, I was more than excited. I love skincare and I'm always willing to try new products, but I like to test them for 4-6 weeks before I make my mind up on whether they're a hit or not. 

*** Spoiler Alert *** I'm a massive fan.

Stationery Haul

I haven't done a haul post in ages, and over the last week I've gone a bit mad with stationery, so thought I'd share what I've bought...because who doesn't love stationery?

Diagnosed 10 Years Ago Today

Last month I wrote a letter to myself on the day I was diagnosed, I mentioned that the date has been burned into my memory, and today is that date ten years on.

I'm Nearly 30 and I've Changed My Name

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I've been in the process of changing my name for the last few weeks. It's not something I've just randomly decided to do, it's been on the cards for a while and I'm going to tell you exactly how and why I did it.

I Hate my Hands because of Dermatophagia

I didn't know there was a name for this thing I've done all my life, until last year. I can't remember a time that I haven't done it, I've always gone through phases of it being really bad and then nothing for a few weeks. I bite and pick the skin around my fingernails resulting in red, painful, and bleeding fingers. I despise my hands.

May Favourites

I told you I'd be back with makeup this month and here it is; I know myself far too well. May was actually really good for new products, so I'm excited to share this with you.
