Summer Base Loves

It's time for a run down of the base products that I'm using this summer. I'll be honest, I don't switch up my base makeup between seasons much anyway, but these are all relatively new buys which I find are perfect for that healthy skin look that we all crave when the weather is nice(r).

My Top Epilating Tips

For around a year now I've been using an epilator (I use this model from Braun) to remove my leg hair. It's something I haven't talked about on here purely because I feel it's the kind of thing that needs to be thoroughly tested to see any results! For those of you who don't know, epilating is essentially plucking out body hair very quickly, and tends to last for about two to three weeks without much hair growing back. Now that I feel I've got a hang of this torturous hair removal device, it's time to talk my top tips...

New Makeup Favourites for Summer

This is simple one, the makeup I've been slapping on my face since the sun has made its appearance. I've actually been using most of these for a few months now, but they have totally become staples in my makeup bag.

I Got a Tattoo!

After years of planning out all the teeny tiny tattoos I want, I finally took the plunge at the end of May and got one. For now I'd just like to share it, but please let me know if any of you are interested in a post about the full experience - talking pain, aftercare and how to go about booking your first tattoo.

Self Tanning for Pale Folk (& Beginners!)

Now, I don't mind being pale. I'm used to it. But, when Summer rolls around I, like many others I'm sure, get the tanning bug. I like being outside in the sun but try to be safe and so rarely catch a natural tan (I don't tend to burn either though which is a bonus!). So, if I do want a golden(ish) glow, self tanning is the way.

The Tinted Lipbalm I'm Obsessed With

I'm going through a lipstick rut right now. For years I wore berries and plums, then last year nudes won me over, with reds staking claim as my bold lip options. Now, I like all of my lipsticks but I just don't find myself drawn to a particular one. Enter the Lanolips Tinted Balm in Rhubarb, the quick and easy guy I keep reaching for.

The Catch Up >> Style Evolution, Feeling Spendy & My Love Life


I'm going to skip straight past the "I said I'd post when uni started back but I didn't because I've been too busy" talk, because although true, I've said it before. I'll probably say it again, but for now it's summer and I don't yet have a job so I need blogging for my sanity. To get back into the swing of things, a quick catch up...

Life Updates & Blog Updates

As of tomorrow I am back at university, ready to study more English Lit and Film and to begin an internship, eek! Anyone who has read this blog before knows how I struggled to post consistently when I started uni, but I really truly want that to change this time around. I thought I'd take the time to talk schedules and introduce some things that are coming up!

The Space NK Splurge

I'm good at saving money, I pride myself on that. But when it's Christmas and you have extra money to spend on yourself instead of rent and food, you need to treat yourself. Yes, this is me justifying the total splurge I made in Space NK. But look at all the pretty.

Music to Cheer You Up

This is a quick post today, I just wanted to share a happy lil' playlist I made recently. I'm an avid mix maker and so it was about time that I compiled all the songs that make me smile or pumped up or think in a more positive way - and here I am sharing it with you lovely people so you can hopefully feel the same way!

The Face Mists You Need

I don't know where I would be without face mists, they have become such a staple in my skincare (and makeup) routine. I love how they provide my skin with much needed hydration in such a quick and easy way, and are such a joy to use! I'm still wanting to test more out, but here are my two favourites at the moment...

TWO YEARS OF EMILOUE

I can't believe I've been writing on this thing for two years now. Although the quantity of my posts has slipped as of late I'm much prouder of the content I'm putting into the world, and I'm excited about what is to come. The ideas buzzing around my head are a little hard to control and I'm not sure if I'll find the time for all of them, but I'll bloody well try.
