Favourites Friday No.88

Finally made it to Friday! It has been a crazy week {anyone who has done public work will understand} but I am looking forward to the weekend.

88

This week tested my patience, with an onslaught of work and projects coming at a quick pace, with little time to get them all finished. At one point I was sat in a meeting – my heart pounding – wondering if I had remembered to fill out every line on my bid.

Inside My Makeup Bag: August 2017

Under my bathroom sink, in a large quilted bag, sits the tools for the natural look I go for every day. My makeup bag – like many others – is a reflection of myself. From my matte powder to my lengthening mascara, everything in there helps me show off my face in the best way possible.

Earlier this year I shared my full cupboard of beauty products, and as time has changed and I’ve moved to another city, I thought it was time I shared the more condensed version of my current makeup bag.Read More

Why I Stopped Glamorizing Bad Habits

I’m going to make this pretty short and sweet as I sliced open two of my fingers earlier {what lengths I go to for fresh lime juice} but this is important, so I shall persevere. Let’s talk about why we need to stop glamorizing unhealthy, bad habits.
