It's CHRISTMAS! Well, almost. 

I don't know about you, but I feel like the Christmas season is upon us a lot sooner this year. The adverts are out, people are putting their trees up, and I'm a Celebrity is on TV. It is such a joyous time of year (except from all my looming deadlines) and I can't wait to get further into the Christmas spirit. With Xmas being so close, it can only mean one thing, presents. Whether we are making wish lists for ourselves or to buy lists for others, it's that time of year when all the beautiful gift sets start appearing in stores. I am going to share with you a few of my favourites today. 
Soap and Glory are KNOWN for Christmas gifting. The Queens of the 3 for 2 world, per se. Their abundance of indulgent sets at a great price make them a go to for many…

My brow routine

I often get questions about how I fill in my eyebrows. I never included doing them in GRWM's because honestly, they took too long to do. I would spend up to 15 minutes perfecting my brows each time, up until I found the perfect product. This new kit that I have rediscovered allows me to fill in my brows in as little as 5 minutes. An actual game changer.


I've probably used every type of brow product on the market. Pencils to pomades, powders to gels. I always got along best with creamier products - ones that would glide through the brows effortlessly, but still provide a sharp, on fleek look. Most recently, I was using a pomade, which I loved, but it began to dry up, so I switched to a different powder that I found. Because of the dry formula, I found it tricky to use and had to dampen it with water every time. I then, by a stroke of luck, found the below hidden away in my makeup drawers.

The Kiss Cosmetics brow palette. I had completely neglected it, regretfully, and when I re…

Fate

The exact time is 22:27pm on the 3rd of November 2018. I am sat crossed legged, on my bed, listening to the sound of fireworks explode outside of my flat window. It reminds me of the night I spent in London, a year ago to this day. I just had the sudden urge to write. To write about fate, my experience, and what it means to me. 

You've probably heard the saying "everything happens for a reason" a million times. It's a quote I personally like to live by. I've been known to say - quite controversially - that I believe that coincidences don't exist. I fully trust that things happen the way that they do in order to teach us something or show us something we wouldn't have realised otherwise. However you think of it, whether it be that the stars are aligning or what will be will be, all of us have a habit of blaming things on the universe, or God, or the stars. 
If you know me, you will probably be aware of the fact that I believe in astrology. Every ounce of m…
