Travel Inspiration...


Hi guys, I'm feeling super stressed out at the moment so what better way than to look at places I can't yet afford to visit at 00:53am. I don't usually blog at this time, my posts are most likely planned and not just 'thrown together' like this...but I'm just feeling bleeeurgh. I'm definitely getting a little bit worried about the whole university situation, I have absolutely and still do love uni but I just worry that the course is and isn't right for me. I love the professional, business-like and innovate thinking side to me - and that's where the course fits me perfectly. But, I have a lot of other aspects of my life too that I feel I haven't even thought about perusing and I'm just worried I'm wasting opportunities. Aaaah, I don't even know why I'm ranting as in a weeks time I'll probably be feeling perfectly fine and back to normal again, but you know when you just sit and think 'what am I actually doing with my life?' - that kinda thing. (Sorry, I don't usually get so personal on my blog, sometimes I just need to vent a little).

I've been thinking about travelling so much recently...I don't know what's got into me, but I've just got that wanderlust. I wanted to share some places I've always wanted to visit, kind of almost like a bucket list. I don't think I'll be able to visit any of these places anytime soon, probably not even within the next few years. Fingers crossed I'll be able to travel loooads after I've finished my degree.

These are the top three places I'd absolutely love to visit...

High End VS Drugstore | Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz vs Soap and Glory Archery

Today I'm talking dupes, I think most people love these posts because it usually ends up saving them a lot of money - especially when it comes to eyebrows. I know more than anyone that eyebrows can be pretty stressful, I don't have natural eyebrows which can just be filled in (unfortunately, or a lot of time would be saved). I wrote a post about Urban Decay and Makeup Revolution a while ago, which you can read here, but today I'm going to be showing you how you can save money on your brows. 

I'm pretty sure you'll of heard of Anastasia Beverly Hills, a brand renowned famous for its brow products - in particular the Brow Wiz. I've been using the Brow Wiz in the shade 'Dark Brown' for over a year now and its not the most expensive of products, but for a student its pretty pricey. I'd be using the product everyday (as its the only thing that can actually make my brows look presentable) meaning that I ran out around every 2/3 months. The product retails at £15.50 and can be purchased on various cosmetic sites like Cult Beauty and Beauty Bay. Of course there's the delivery charge as well, so its a little more expensive but hey ho, I definitely didn't mind paying for such a good product.

Top 10 Skincare Tips for Eczema & Sensitive Skin

Hi everyone, there's no photo today as I was struggling to actually find something that related to this post without displaying a photo of my skin when its particularly bad...not that I'm ashamed, I just don't want to plaster it all over the internet. This is a different kind of post for my blog, but I really wanted to write it because recently I've discovered a lot more ways of coping with having sensitive skin. As I have mentioned many times, I have had eczema since I can remember - "a medical condition in which patches of skin become rough and inflamed with blisters which cause itching and bleeding." This is a really common condition, that most people have suffered with at some point in there life. There's many different types of eczema, I personally just suffer with the inflamed side of things rather than blistering. It really isn't the end of the world (and this definitely is not a sympathy post, because its just a normal aspect of my life), however there are things that can be done to significantly improve your skin if you are affected by eczema, or simply just have sensitive skin.

I have ten 'tips' which I have found improve my skin dramatically when I actually put them to use (sometimes I'm just too busy...or lazy)...

Boots Haul! | New Drugstore Makeup

Hi guys! As you know it was recently my 19th birthday, so I thought it was only appropriate to ask for a few more makeup products for my birthday...yeah, not that I need any. I wanted to try out more drugstore products as they really upped their game in 2015. I've seen so many more videos on Youtube this year featuring products from the drugstore and I really wanted to give some a go which I'd never tried before (and of course the points gained on my Boots loyalty card were very welcomed!). 

I decided not to ask for any high end makeup this year, just because I already have quite a lot and I just didn't feel the need to spend £30+ on a product which I could actually find a dupe for in Boots or Superdrug! I may be wrong, but there's no harm in trying and if I end up loving these products its an added bonus that they are around half the price...

Skincare for Sensitive Skin! | MooGoo Review

Hello everyone and happy new year! I can't believe another year has already gone by so quickly, and I can only imagine that 2016 is going to fly by as well! I wanted to get this post up as I've been trying out a selection of the MooGoo skincare range for around two months now, and really wanted to tell you all about it. The range focuses on skincare for those with skin problems, such as Eczema, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, baby skin conditions and Acne. As you know I've had dry skin and Eczema for as long as I can remember so when MooGoo contacted me I was more than excited to actually try skincare products which were created specifically for skin conditions, seen as though everything else I use its from the chemist. 

MooGoo sent me three of their products to try out, all of which my skin has got on pretty well with (sorry about the darkness of the photos, its winter and I don't have studio lights)...
