Organic October With Antipodes*

My skin craves Antipodes products like Super Hans from Peep Show craves crack. Lovely, moreish crack. It therefore rejoiced & / or buzzed its proverbial tits off when I had the chance to try these beaut new products from the brand recently.

It seems like it's not alone either - I've heard nothing but good things about Antipodes from pretty much every blogger I follow / stalk - & yous all left proper babein' comments on this pic of me latest line-up [below] when I posted it on Insta recently.

You Make Me, Feel Like I'm Living A Sorbet Dream*

I got a lil surprise parcel from my baes at So...? recently, who've just released ANOTHER game-changing scent into our lives. 

This fragrance, as you may have guessed from my heavily Katy Perry fuelled title, is Sorbet Dream; and it's an absolute 10/10. Available in body mist* form or as a perfume*; this sweet smelling bottle of lilac loveliness has been sprayed upon my person [and taken with me on my recent business trip to Milton Keynes, where everything stinks of horse turd] more times than I can count.

The Evolution Of Modern Dating*

Romance: Then and Now...

If you compare the dating world of the past to dating in 2018, you might be forgiven for believing that romance is well and truly dead. With an abundance of dubious dating apps, ‘Netflix & chill’ and social media hook-ups, it’s no surprise that many of us feel rather disheartened with the idea of looking for love. 

According to a recent study by eHarmony, however, all is not lost: their Happiness Index study (a study of attitudes towards love and romance with more than 2,000 participants) found millennials to be the most romantic generation of all. To investigate how attitudes towards romance have evolved over time, I’ve teamed up with Angelic Diamonds, retailer of custom engagement rings

Little Known Box September 2018 | Autumn Prep*

Yous are probably aware by now [as I not so subtly explained in this post] that I am NOT into Autumn / Winter. But since this seasonally themed Little Known Box arrived in me life recently, I can at least a bit agree now that this cold time of year has its benefits. And by benefits, I'm PURELY referring to this box, like; let's not get carried away. Wanna see why?

Life Update - A Chatty, Rambly One With LOTS OF Fillet O' Fish Hatred

Aite gang. I don't really have a life, so this title may be somewhat classed as clickbait, but I wanted to sit down and share some stuff with yous today. I enjoy writing personal posts - and you guyz seem to enjoy them too, so as with everything in my life at the moment: YOLO; let's av it. My motto, mantra & most commonly used word RN [along with sh*t, bellend and Clive obv.]

I'm sat here right now [in bed, as I am 99% of the time] in comfy leggings & my oversized M A N C H E S T E R top [the bee, not pure Man United kit] full on incandescent, fiery rage. Why? Let me tell you, my friend.

NEW >> Glo & Ray's Wonder Blush Cheek Collection*

I've always loved Glo & Ray [their loose eyeshadow pigments forever being a fave of mine] ... so when their new collection of Cheek Wonder Blushers* landed on my doorstep recently [lolol let's paint an illusion of me being rich and having a house with a letterbox & proper door, yeah?] I was made up. For realz

I've posted about them on me Insta and worn Plumlicious on my [face, not bum] cheeks every day since this parcel of triumph arrived with me, but I felt their beauty is too intense to not share more deets about them in a blog post [with about 234829634 obligatory photos, obv] so now we here.

I QUIT My Job. Now What?

I quit my job.

Dis sh*t is not like me, not like me in the slightest. Although I casually yell YOLOOOOOOO at least 12 times a day, I've never done anything as reckless as jib off a decent paid job with nothing lined up to go to

I'm fed up of being taken advantage of, lied to and pretty much being [metaphorically] bummed on the daily - as well as being constantly thrown under the bus & having to clean up other people's steaming turds of messes; project wise. 

I'm fed up of waking up with dread, the constant uncertainty & the toxic vibes. Being held prisoner to a paycheck & being made to work every hour under the sun for fear of being sacked if you say no. Crying like a newborn [or like Clive Balls did when I got him] in a service station carpark to a customer who tipped me over the edge. Being threatened verbally, non-verbally & in the sense of feeling like your P45 is on its way. I can always make more money, but I can't make more time. And I can't take feeling like this anymore; especially after my conversation with HR made it clear that nothing is going to change as quickly as it needs to.

New In : Norvell Professional Tanning | The Venetian Range*

Well, would you look at that? The whole year has friggin' just flown by, and we're already now facing the bleak, total and utter sh*teness that is Autumn / Winter. Though most bloggers' wet dream, this time of year is not for me. I'm not about Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, jumpers and boots. You can read more about my fiery hatred for the colder months of the year here

One thing that becomes even harder during the cold, miserable months until Spring resurfaces again, is maintaining a decent level of tan. Obv unless my fortunes dramatically change & I become this thing I've heard about online called 'rich'?? [cannot relate] I won't be booking any winter sun vacays - and spray tans involve me getting me tragic body out in front of other humans, so I was buzzin' me tits off to get these new Norvell professional tanning products sent to me recently.

Laser Hair Removal, A Thread By Me*

Body hair. It's a personal preference. Some gals rly own the natural look, some gals are a bit 50/50 [ie, "I'll shave the parts you can see, but the rest can gtf"] & some gals are forever fuzz free. 

I'm in the 50/50 category tbh. I personally cba with shaving my legs every single day [and as there is a distinct lack of action / leg stroking in my life, I don't have the motivation to even bother anymore] - but I'd love to have permo smooth skin; without any of the effort or drawbacks of shaving. That's why I'm so into the idea of laser hair removal; something which I'm gonna explain my love for throughout this post. Thanks for coming to my hairy TED Talk.

A Small Beauty Bay Haul

I get these overwhelming urges to spend money I don't have, on things I don't really need; just to ruin my own life sometimes. You feel me? I always feel guilty AF afterwards - as well as like a proper tit when I don't have enough ££ for a taxi to work or a tin of tuna to smother my pasta with. But can I stop? NoI didn't choose the recklessly poor life, the recklessly poor life defo chose me

As far as haulin' and overspending go, this online Beauty Bay order was pretty tame. It just helped take the edge off the urge, yeno? And although I'm sounding progressively more and more like a bad smackhead here, I am totes talking about makeup. Pinky promise. A N Y W A Y; let's crack on with the roundup [smackhead pun very much intended] so I can give you the tea.
