On Being Cool

I never think of myself as particularly adventurous. I've always had a pretty casual style but when I look amongst the black, white and grey, I do find that I have a tendency to wear some slightly quirkier pieces. Cue photos of me taken in my happy place, Waterstones...

The Warm Eyeshadow Palette You Need

It's no secret that I love Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, although I've not been excited by them for a good couple of years now. I locked down Naked 1 and Naked 2, but then wasn't fussed about any others, and although the all matte Ultimate Basics palette is gorgeous, I knew I didn't need it. But, when I saw the photos of the Naked Heat palette, I knew I had to have it...

Summer Nail Picks

It's no secret I love a good nail polish, and a mixture of brights and muted tones often don my nails all year round. When summer makes an appearance I do particularly love egging on the sun with some peppier picks though, so that's what this post is all about. You don't need to guess my favourite formulas...

Moving On

In January I wrote a post about how my life had been turned upside down with a horrible situation with my flatmates. Now that I'm in the midst of packing up my room, I've been thinking about how I can't wait until the date I get to leave this place. I wanted to write something so that this 'journey' isn't open-ended on my blog, and so I can get these thoughts out of my head and move on...

A Simplified Skincare Routine

My skin has been a bit of a nightmare in the past few months. It gradually become less dry and leaned more towards combination, which is fine, but then all of a sudden it started breaking out. In an attempt to try and help it topically as much as I could, I decided to simplify my skincare routine, so here's a look at what I'm using...

A Glowing YSL Base

How to Survive Festivals if You're Anxious or Claustrophobic

Hey, festival season is beginning! While some people live for gigs and festivals where they can be deep in the crowds or right at the front of the stage, some of us just can't handle that atmosphere. I'm not a huge festival goer (I've only been to one) but I really wanted to put this post together for like-minded people. Whether it's because you have anxiety, feel claustrophobic, just hate crowds or are new to festivals or gigs, then I have a couple tips...

An Easy Breezy Summer Outfit

When it comes to summer (Scottish summer, that is) you can usually get away with jeans and a tee on sunny days. But sometimes we're greeted with a heatwave, and skin tight jeans just won't cut it. I thought one of these rare days coupled with a walk to the Botanic Gardens would be a great day to test out my new favourites; some super flowy striped trousers. Paired with a boxy crop top and trainers, this was a really simple outfit that featured no tight or clingy clothes. Perfect for a super hot day. We may have gone a little snap happy..

The June Post

Well, May was a hectic month. I had a few birthday parties, found out I need to search for a new job after only two months of working at my current place because the store is closing, and I won an award! I was so surprised and pleased to find out that I won Best Section for my uni's magazine at our media awards - I'm so proud that something I worked my butt off on is getting recognition! Anyway, here's a look at the month ahead...
