Why Blogging Friendships Are So Important

I’ve been online every day since I was 11. That’s half of my life talking to strangers on the internet. In fact, one of my best friends from the age of 16-19 was a girl I met on twitter! Since starting blogging I’ve spoken to probably hundreds of bloggers, and it’s thanks to them that my blog is where it is today.


There are so many reasons why blogging friendships are so important and this is basically just a rambly post professing my love for some of my fave girls who I could not get through the day without having a chat to.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster

Almost two months ago I went to an event that I didn’t even blog about, whoops. But I swore to myself I would write about the products that I found in my collection once I’d given them fair use. So I photographed them all that time ago, and now I can finally start to talk about them.


In the Girl Gang Event goodie bag was a set of Ole Henriksen’s best selling products in mini forms, and we all know I’m a sucker for minis. The product I was most excited about trying was the Truth Serum Collagen Booster* as I know it’s one of the brands bestsellers, and if you want to know what I thought of it you better keep reading.

The Quickest Way To Switch Brushes Without Switching Brushes

I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with makeup recently. I’ve even got a look coming soon (hopefully, let’s see how the photos come out) that needs a huge variety of eyeshadow colours, more than I have clean brushes. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of eye makeup brushes but I have some really good ones that I stick to when I go for a smokey eye or a more colourful look.


But MAC and Sigma don’t come cheap, and that’s where the Shadow Switch* by Beauty Essentials comes in. Dry brush cleaners have been popping up in my YouTube sub box for a few months now, and I was so excited to try one myself!

New Eye Favourites from Rimmel

A few weeks ago I got an email from a PR company asking for my details to put on file and I sent them over but thought nothing more of it. That was until the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me as a blogger happened last week. I got surprise blogger mail! And not just from anyone, it was from one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands – Rimmel.


Rimmel have reformulated their Scandaleyes Mascara in two shades and named it Scandaleyes Reloaded, which has launched alongside two felt tip liners (my preferred eyeliner for liquid liner) – the Thick & Thin Eyeliner and the Precision Micro Eyeliner. Over the last week I’ve exclusively worn these products on my eyes to test them out and let you know what I think of them.

New In My Lip Stash

I go through stages of buying loads of products from one particular category. Concealer, mascara, eyeshadow; they’ve all had their time. Recently it’s been lip products that I’ve gathered a lot of.


For someone who is trying to cut back on their makeup spending (lol), I think I’ve added a reasonable amount of lip products into my stash, but nothing too crazy. Although you may think five is a little excessive, but I highly doubt it if you’re reading this post.

Covershoot Cosmetics Smokey Eyes

PSA: This is the first blog post I’ve actually written in about a month so I’m a little rusty. It’s flipping difficult working full time! This weekend I’m hoping to have a huge catch up session with my blog so expect exciting content in the next week or so as I have some great things in the pipeline, but there will be a post explaining all about my new job in case you’ve missed the twitter gossip.


Over a month ago (bad blogger) a brand new beauty brand got in contact with me and asked if I wanted to receive a box of some of their products. Well, I practically bit their hands off and jumped at the chance because we all know that I love trying new makeup! This brand was Covershoot Cosmetics and I’ve finally got around to trying their products.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette Review

A few weekends ago I took myself shopping for blog photo props. On the prop front it was unsuccessful, but I can’t not look at the beauty products in TK Maxx and that’s where I stumbled upon Too Faced. Yes, Too Faced in TK Maxx and bonus: it hadn’t had somebody’s fingers stuck in it!


The Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette only cost me £10 so I couldn’t walk away, especially when it’s still on the Debenhams website for £35! Sure, the colours aren’t the most wearable but I’d never tried any Too Faced shadows and wanted to test them out.

Empties #4: Body Care

Here is my final instalment of my empties for this month (and the final post of the month), and maybe this will teach me not to leave it so long next time because there were so many products to talk about. This post is all about body care so mainly shower gels.


I’ve obviously used up more products than just shower gel as you can see in the above photo but when it’s me and my mum using the same products, we get through it crazily fast!
