October Goals.

I'm quite excited about autumn being here, although yesterday I almost cried twice because it was so cold - truly, it was really horrendous weather! Don't judge me, I'm made for sun. I guess it's time to just accept that…

An Unexpected Eyeshadow Favourite.

I think this is the first photo on here that features a seriously well-loved makeup product! I usually prefer to grab a new one to photograph but I had to show you just how much I adore this beaut eyeshadow...…

Home Wishing.

Looking at this home wishlist - something I haven't done on here in ages, by the way - I feel like this could have definitely been from last year. My tastes haven't changed all that much. Worrying? Maybe. I've taken…

Pixi Standout Favourites.

I'm such a fusspot when it comes to skincare, that when I do find a brand that caters to my endless criteria, I seem to stockpile on it pretty heavily! Right now, I'm all over Pixi skincare; their no-fuss approach…

Deep breaths. I realise you're eyeing up the most incredible face palette ever to exist. Take a moment, have a lie down and come back if you need to. I get it, it's a beauty. I just knew I was…

October Goals.

I’m quite excited about autumn being here, although yesterday I almost cried twice because it was so cold – truly, it was really horrendous weather! Don’t judge me, I’m made for sun.
I guess it’s time to just accept that I’ll spend the next four months indoors, but yay for cosy evenings, pumpkin spiced everything and candles everywhere!

01. Say yes to more sun! I can’t wait to squeeze in one last little summer holiday next week as we head to Italy! Mmm Nutella and pizza. Nutella on pizza….

My staple eyeshadow comes as part of a duo, because they really compliment each other and I also find they set in place for the entire day.
I’ve had so, so many compliments since I started wearing this combo, it really is a fabulous way to inject a little sparkle in to your life,…

Home Wishing.

Looking at this home wishlist – something I haven’t done on here in ages, by the way – I feel like this could have definitely been from last year. My tastes haven’t changed all that much. Worrying? Maybe.

I’ve taken a break from buying any home accessories and furniture lately, but I’ve definitely got the itch to add some new pieces and switch things up a little.
I’m mostly dreaming of more brass accessories, and also a lot of cosy autumnal additions. I’m loving Diptyque candles, pom pom throws and cosy geo rugs right now!…

Pixi Standout Favourites.

I’m such a fusspot when it comes to skincare, that when I do find a brand that caters to my endless criteria, I seem to stockpile on it pretty heavily!
Right now, I’m all over Pixi skincare; their no-fuss approach to skincare is so me. It’s not overly complicated, making it easy to find a lineup that works for you, and the products are seriously effective and perfectly packaged.
Let me introduce a few standout favourites of mine…

Pixi Glow Mist; I already have the Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist,…

Hourglass Surreal Lighting Edit.

Deep breaths. I realise you’re eyeing up the most incredible face palette ever to exist. Take a moment, have a lie down and come back if you need to. I get it, it’s a beauty.

I just knew I was going to get my hands on the new Hourglass Surreal Lighting Edit, I saw the promo images months ago and I knew I needed it.
You may have noticed that I never really enter in to the whole new collection palettes thing, or hype up new releases,…
