Learning To Love My Body & Entering “Real” Recovery

Whenever people say recovery, they seem to assume that you just return to how you were before. But the truth is, theres no real “going back”. You have to reinvent yourself and learn who you are now because it won’t be the person you were before. That sounds rather dramatic reading it back but it’s true. It’s also a good thing! I’ve already written in depth about how I ended up becoming anorexic, which you can read in this post here if you’re interested. While I speak a lot  ...

Lush Cosmetics Giveaway

So this is it, I’m running my first ever give away! This is just a really quick post to let you know all the rules and such that I won’t be able to fit in the pinned tweet. Not going to lie I was going to buy a shit ton of Harry Potter merchandise since this is going live on the 1st September, but I couldn’t find enough House neutral items. Getting pretty sick of the Gryffindor bias. So instead I decided to pick up a selection of Lush products. Not just any products- these  ...

Technic Cosmetics Brush Cleaner Review

If theres one thing I am ridiculously bad at doing, it’s cleaning my makeup brushes. I know its a must but I always end up forgetting, especially as in this heat I’ve just been applying a BB cream from Kiko with a blending sponge, rather than a full coverage foundation. So when Technic Cosmetics sent me over their new brush cleaner to try, I knew I couldn’t put off cleaning them any longer. I’m so lazy at times it unreal. Now until now I’ve just been using a Superdrug own brand spray to  ...

My New Favourite Drugstore Mascara

So I was lucky enough to receive a few products from Technic last week! This is a brand I remember using when I was first getting into makeup, back when I was 15/16 and they’re still just as good today. I took a week to fully try out the products I was sent to see what I thought and I must say, I’m impressed! I very nearly didn’t get these products at all thanks to the postman! Apparently he has difficulty judging size as he shoved the parcel through the letter box when it  ...

My Brow Journey & Benefit Ka-Brow Review

Go grab a cuppa because this is going to be a long post! It's so embarrassing to admit but it was only last year that I discovered the importance of brows. When I was growing up it was the fashion to have brows as thin as possible and if you still had your natural brow (like I did) you were bullied really badly for it. I'm sure my fellow 90's ladies know exactly what I'm talking about! In the end I caved in and got my auntie to pick them off so I just had a super thin line left and I  ...

Superdrug Haul and Review

So this is what happens when you have 45 minutes to wait until your train and need toothpaste…which I actually nearly forgot! For some reason I’ve never tried any of the Superdrug own brand products but now I’m thinking I might need to buy the whole shop as I’m in love. This is only a small haul as I’m trying to avoid spending money at the moment but I am so happy that I treat myself to these products as all three have been game changing! The three products I picked up were the  ...

Dear Diary: So Much For Organised

Oh my days, this week has tested me more than any other! You would think that going to one of the largest and highly recommended universities in the North that they would be organised. Ha, no! Not even close. As I've mentioned on here I got accepted onto the Digital Media Production course, straight on second year (level 5) as I'd already done two years of graphic design. As such I needed the direct entry timetable which would put me in with the other level 5s. Did they send me  ...

Beat the Kink Bobble Review

For months all I've seen and heard about is the Invisibobble and I have to admit I was intrigued. Now that my hair has grown to the point where can (finally!) start tying it back, I realised that I actually needed to invest in some new hair bobbles- most of my old ones seem to have gone for a walk. The pet hate that I've always had with traditional bobbles is that they kink your hair. Since I have very thin hair I only have to have it back in a ponytail for a few minutes for this to  ...

Alys George Giveaway Unboxing

Okay so this is a post I didn’t expect to be writing at all. However last week I was lucky enough to win Alys George’s first ever giveaway! I was actually out when the package turned up and even though Alys sent it first class it still turned up quicker than either of us expected. Luckily my grandparents live next door and my grandad heard the postman knocking on our door so he took the delivery for me! There are so many perks to them living next door but this one is a big one.  ...
