So Eco Makeup Brushes Review*

So Eco Makeup Brushes

The gorgeous folks at MakeupBrushes.co.uk sent me over some of their beautiful So Eco makeup brushes to try out and tell you all about. I've been big on finding the perfect makeup brushes and at the moment I'm using a mix of my Real Techniques and cheap makeup brushes from Amazon, but there's always room for more!

If you haven't heard of So Eco before, they are a range of eco friendly makeup brushes made from recycled, sustainable and eco friendly materials, even the packaging is bio-degradable, right down to the ink!

I've been trying out the Eye Shading brush, Foundation & Concealer duo brush, Eye duo brush and the Multi Tasking brush.

What to do when you fall out of love with your blog

What to do when you fall out of love with your blog

It doesn't matter whether you've been blogging for 5 weeks, 5 months or 5 years, at some point along the line, you'll fall out of love with you blog. But what do you do when this happens? Do you give up? Keep going even though you're not enjoying it and turn it into a chore? Neither of those options will do your blog any good.

I fall out of love with my blog ALL THE TIME and it could be for any number of reasons. Sometimes I don't have the time to blog as much as I'd like and so I don't like how slowly it progresses, sometimes I am annoyed that my photo's don't turn out how I wanted, or I get frustrated that only 5 people read a post that I was really proud of. But it's so important to get back to a place where you enjoy blogging and you're pleased with what you're doing.

So here's what I do when I fall out of love with my blog.

Everyday makeup collection for under £50

Everyday makeup collection for under £50

It's not impossible to put together an everyday makeup collection on a budget. You can still pack your makeup bag with base products, contouring kits, palettes to create a range of different looks and loads more without breaking the bank, so I thought I would show off my everyday makeup collection for less than £50.

It's not always about owning the best high end products, you can still have a great makeup collection that allows you to style some amazing looks and have some pennies to spare, so if you're on a budget, then this post is for you!

Bargain makeup brushes for less than £5: the verdict

Wangsaura makeup brushes | cheap makeup brushes

You might have seen on Instagram that I recently purchased 30 new makeup brushes for less than £5. No, I didn't make a typo, I actually spent £5 on 30 makeup brushes.

I usually use a mix of Real Techniques and Spectrum brushes, but only really have one core set, so I was forever battling with the need to wash my brushes and actually use them, as we all know it take 2753020 hours for makeup brushes to dry naturally.

So I decided to spend a few quid on a set that I could use once in a while, giving me the chance to actually clean and dry my brushes properly. The brushes I chose are a brand called Wangsaura and I found them on Amazon. I couldn't argue with the pricing.

7 things no one told you about being a blogger

7 things no one told you about being a blogger

The bloggosphere is so saturated now with everyone joining in but do you know what I'm noticing? Not many of the bloggers I see coming in are actually still going a few months later. Why do I think that is? (and I say this without wanting to ruffle any feathers) People are seeing the independent success people are having from their blogs and YouTube channels and everyone wants a chance to make the same money without realising what actually goes on behind the scenes.

I've been blogging since 2013, and while I haven't made any money, found huge success or made a name for myself on any level, I keep my blog going as much as I can because I'm proud of my little space on the internet. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I sit here and think to myself 'But why am I not a millionaire from my blog yet?'

The truth is, that's not what it's about.

I wanted to write this post to remind myself, and others, that even if we haven't made our millions, we've still achieved so much by being faithful to our blogs and developing them into online reflections of ourselves and creating a place for people to come and enjoy our content despite the obstacle we may overcome.

So here are 7 things nobody told you about being a blogger.

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser Review

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

I talk about skincare a lot on my blog and that's because I think it's the most important part of any makeup routine and they key to creating flawless and natural looks. In my time, I've spent an awful lot of money on skincare products, tried out so many and have a few firm favourites. One of my absolute favourites in the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. You can read in my review why I love it so I won't detail all of that here, but I have found a dupe for the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser and that's what I want to talk about today!

The Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser seems to do the same job as the Liz Earle Cleanser with only a few differences.

8 tips to tackle hay fever

8 tips to tackle hay fever

It's that time of year again and those succeptible to hayfever are seeing their symptoms flair up again. I'm somewhat of an irregular hayfever sufferer. I don't seem to get it every year, and it doesn't seem to be as bad as a lot of people I know, but still, it's annoying. I've been chatting to a few friends who have hayfever and and some experts from Pharma Nord to come up with 8 tips to tackle hay fever this summer and since it is Allergy Awareness Week from 25th April - 1st May, what better time to talk about it?

What is hay fever?


So, it might be extremely common, and we've all heard of it, but what is hay fever? In simple terms, exposure to pollen causes the body to produce an antibody which binds to the proteins in pollen, in turn, this triggers another part of the immune system to release a histamine that is responsible for inflammation  which causes the common symptoms of hay fever including a runny or blocked nose, watery and itchy eyes and sneezing. Look at me getting all science on you!!
