Five stocking fillers she’ll want to receive this Christmas!

One of my earliest memories of Christmas is not from the day itself but from my junior school days when life was a little bit less materialistic.

The Autumnal Make Up Switch Up

There is no element of surprise when it comes to my makeup routine. I tend to play pretty safe when it comes to colours, sticking to (or trying to achieve that healthy glow) something that is as near to my natural colourings at that time. So I would say, for me, I’m pretty boring. Evenings out or on those odd days when I tend to be a bit daring, it’s

Get Ready, your customisable Makeup Obsession has arrived!

I often get asked what makeup I use and as I do wear a lot of makeup and write about makeup and skincare, you would think that I am well over the embarrassment of reeling off a long list of products.

This year though, I have been desperately trying to cling onto the summer months that little bit longer as I’m an October baby, and the change in seasons means that I’m that one year older and not an age that I’m particularly comfortable with.

It’s all about the next best thriller!

Ive become a bit addicted to thrillers! Nothing too scary, mind you, but since reading both the popular titles, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, my Chick Lit obsession has taken a slight backseat.  And what perfect timing than jetting off to a sun bed somewhere where the sun is shining to get my next thriller fix! Here’s what’s on my current reading list. The
