My Setting Spray Baes


Being the massive, oily beast that I am; I rely pretty heavily on setting sprays to stop my makeup sliding off my giant, rancid face during the day [I'd say during the night, but who am I kidding - I don't have a life that permits me to be out past 9pm these days.] I've tried and tested a fair few to date like - drugstore, mid-range and high end, but not all of them worked for me. This post is an ode to those that do. My setting spray baes.

I Got 99 Problems, But My Pores Ain't One*


If you're having pore problems I feel bad for you, hun - I got 99 problems but my pores ain't one 🎼

If you didn't read that to the tune of Jay-Z's 99 Problems, pls go back and re-evaluate that decision. Cos I think I've remixed an actual masterpiece there! I've been using this Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer* for aaaages now [it's actually just about to run out, *sobs*] & I absolutely love it. It's pink, it's Instagrammable af & perfectly matches my aesthetic, and most importantly of all; I adore how velvety this stuff leaves my skin & how smoothly my makeup applies over it.

#BuckleyBesties | Celebrating International Friendship Day*


The other week, we celebrated International Friendship Day; one of the rare national / international days of things that actually means something. You know what I mean - the kind of days you see trending on Twitter are normally things like 'international banana lovers day' or 'national puddle appreciation' or something tragic along those lines. 

My baes at Buckley London spoilt me AND my best mate Sarah rotten on the day, sending us both cute little parcels containing matching, stunning Simplicity Friendship Bracelets in Rose Gold.* Which was possibly the most thoughtful surprise of all time. I haven't had mine off since - I love the delicate design, rose gold beads and adjustable detailing. Friendship bracelets for grown ups 💗

Current Cult Beauty Cravings


Obv I'm way too poor for any of this stuff; but if money wasn't a crippling, harrowing issue for me, here's a few of the things I would most definitely be picking up from Cult Beauty this month. If anyone fancies doing me some kind of PR Request deal with these lil beauts or becoming my Sugar Daddy who I wouldn't actually have to communicate with, these things would be gladly received xo


Seksy, Everything About You So Seksy* | AND 10% OFF!


Vintage pop reference there; if you got it, we can be best friends. Instantly. But no, rly. I received this proper beaut [on the inside & out, hun] bottle of Seksy Beauty Entice Perfume* recently & it's everything. It's all I've worn since it arrived at me gaff.

Not only is it Instagrammable af in that stunning crystal-esque glass bottle; each bottle is also adorned with a gorgeous charm & a Swarovski gem - adding even more lux sparkle to its already 10/10 design. Entice is one of three stunning new scents from Seksy Beauty, and she's the focal point of today's post.

SO, Seeing As Unpopular Opinions Are The 'In' Thing Recently...


... here's a load of mine. Last time I posted about unpopular opinions, a troll [whose profile pic & recent uploads were all pure nudes of her - posing with shrubbery over her nips in her ma's rockery] kicked off at me on Twitter calling me boring & all kinds of delightful names [love you hun xoxo] - so here's to hoping that mad troglodyte doesn't resurface on this attempt.

My Current Favourite TV Shows*


I spend a fair amount of my spare time mindlessly devouring chocolate bars whilst catching up with my fav telly. My current TV isn't really up to much [it's one of those proper old, boxy ones that weighs approx 34 stone.] I've been eying up some Panasonic beauties recently; with an aim to get a high dynamic range television set-up within my life soon. But it does the job, for now! Here's a few shows I'm properly loving unwinding to at the moment.

New Glue, HBU?*


As a false lash obsesso, I'm always on the hunt for dece lash glues that'll hold my look in place & not betray me with a half-hanger-off situ. Until now, I've bulk bought Eylure lash glue off eBay [cos I'm poor AF & tbh, boring & always end up buying the same sh*t out of habit] - but I was recently sent this Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive* with Aloe Vera which has changed up my lash game a  fair bit. 

It's gentle, dries clear, is totes contact lense friendly [as yes, I am very short-sighted in my old age & rely on my lenses to function as a human] and available in ya local Boots for £3.49 [oh plus it's currently on offer in there too, #winning] - meaning it's a lot more accessible than putting an offer in online & waiting 2-5 business days for your adhesive to arrive.

New In Skincare : July / August 2018


I've started putting way more effort into my skincare game recently. I always complain about my rancid face, the oil slicks that pure form on me giant fod & the fact that I'm getting that old now, I'm practically fossilised... but I've never really got off my lazy arse and done anything about it. 

Introducing some of the skincare baes I've been using over the past few weeks to sort me life out; making my face more tolerable for all who cross its terrifying path. There's a few brands & products in today's post - all of which I've been trying out this month... alongside a few others that I haven't featured in today's review, but which I will include in other post[s] I have planned.

Not All Heroes Wear Capes... This One's In A Project*


You may have seen, on my Insta stories, that there's a new product in town that's stolen my heart recently. I posted a few skincare chats on there the other night, where I showed this bad boy in action [and, shortly after, my makeup free face had promptly lost me about 20 followers, hahahahah; thanks huns for confirming that my face truly is certified as rancid.] 

Whereas my mug is almost certainly deemed a sick joke, this miracle product is anything but that; instead being branded a hero, bae, life-partner and game changer within my skincare regime. I'm talking about, of course, the Undo Waterproof Eye Makeup Eraser* from The Hero Project; keep reading for all the reasons why it's a must have in every #bblogger's life & why this brand are so damn on fleek.

What Are These Fatty Deposits on My Neck and How Can I Get Rid of Them?*


What is a Fatty Deposit?
*Sponsored post

Having an unexplained mass growing in your neck (or anywhere for that matter) can be embarrassing and alarming. These deposits are usually very large and noticeable, and can sometimes be painful. Although these deposits of fat can affect people of all ages, they most commonly occur in middle-aged adults. 

The medical term for these fatty deposits is Lipoma. They are usually harmless and mostly just cause discomfort for the affected person. They can range in size from a few centimeters across to a few inches across. They feel squishy and they move if you push them. Sometimes, you can hide your Lipoma, but if it 's on your neck, it can be hard to hide. You may want to get it removed to improve your quality of life.

New In Beauty : July 2018


Aite you bunch of worldies. I'm guessing you're here cos a] you're into beauty or b] my spammy promo tweets enticed you in. In which case... hihi, I'm a bit of a knobhead, but bear with me; k? 

Either way, I'm here today [sipping a double vodka & lemo - cos Christ on a bike this week has been a drag] & typing away [regularly missing keys as I go, yolo] in an over-excited manner about some of the latest bits in beauty I've been trying out. Dead excited to share them with you tbh, there's some lesser known, but most exciting bits in the mix this month.

Fit or Sh*t? | THOSE Primark Lashes


While I was in Primarni the other week, I ended up a] sweating my tits off b] getting a pure cob on and c] picking up some of the SoSu for Primark false lashes. From their packaging and first impressions, they do look very Lilly Lashes - & for £5 a pair vs the high end price point, I was too intrigued not to pick up a couple of packs. 

I was waaaaaay too hot, agitated and raging to be arsed looking through the different styles - other humans were really getting to me by this point; so I grabbed a set of Dubai and Kylie falsies and went to queue in conditions that felt as hot as the surface of the sun. Are they fit, or sh*t though? Were they worth the sacrifice to my sanity that was spending a sunny Saturday morning in Primarni? I'll tell you now, hun, if you fancy scrolling down.
