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. We spent hours making crepe paper decorations for the Christmas tree and a stocking out of felt to hang over the fire place or at the end of the bed.

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. Truth is, with so much choice, it’s really hard to just stick to one brand. My makeup purchases have started to get out of control and I blame the

#LFPAMPER The October Edition

Hello Autumn! I shouldn’t really feel shocked by the turn in the weather and the arrival of the colder climate…I mean it happens every year! 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. Birthdays

New gorgeous hydrating No7 Lipstick’s from the Match Made Lipstick Collection!

As we step into Autumn, sadly, my favourite matte lipstick shades get packed away for special occasions. Not because I have anything against matte lipsticks at such time of year but more so because the battle to have pristine lips begins. By that I mean the cool wind on your face, followed by the varying effects of central heating vs air conditioning that dries out your lips and face. Switching
