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…

Five Apps Every Blogger Needs.

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,…

Five Apps Every Blogger Needs.

I always say that a bloggers day never stops – I count time spent on social media as hours clocked, and I’m constantly thinking of ideas for new content, planning Instagram posts and more.

How To Improve Your Instagram Photos.

If there’s one thing I get asked for often, it’s how I take my Instagram photos! I’ve been promising a video on this forever, but I thought I’d throw in a few tips on here too.

Instagram is one platform we don’t seem to be getting sick of – despite their many changes to the algorithms and App itself. I love expressing myself through photos, and I think Instagram allows us to share snapshots of our day without overthinking it.
For me, it’s a bit like a mini blog –…
