Things I've Learnt Lately

I got into blogging because I felt I had some things to share, but also so I could learn a lot more. I've been reflecting of late on some of the new bits of wisdom and knowledge that have come into my life. It's only fair I share them all with you.


Skincare Routine Extras - January 2015

I have a pretty standard skincare routine for both morning and evening but sometimes I want a bit of pampering, or there's an SOS situation, so I need some other hero products at the ready to sort things out. Let me introduce you to the products that I use more occasionally, but are always there to lend a hand when need be.

Evening skincare routine - January 2015

Today I’m going through my summer evening skincare routine, although it’s not as different to what I use in winter as my morning routine is. That being said, I have moved on to new and exciting products I’ve discovered in the interim!

Morning skincare routine - January 2015

Back in August, I went through my morning skincare routine, but given it’s been a fair few months since that post, I thought it high time to give a little update. You’ll notice that my summer skincare regimen is a lot lighter on with products than in winter. I find that using too many products in warmer weather makes makeup sit badly and not stay as long.

Why I sleep with an eye mask

I did try for a while to not sleep on my stomach so as to reduce my face wrinkling when pushed against the sheets, as described here, but to be totally honest, I didn't get very far. I just can't seem to kick the habit, it seems. If you, like myself, must sleep on your stomach, might I suggest buying a silk eye mask?

Beauty products for your gym bag

I've previously covered how to look good while working out, but I thought it might be nice to have a sneak peek into what beauty products never leave my bag when I'm at the gym. I often have very limited time between exercising and having to dash off to work or uni, so I rely on a set of hard working products to get me looking presentable again in a matter of minutes.

A love letter To blue nail polishes

Ever since I first started wearing nail polish approximately 6 years ago, I've always gravitated towards blue shades. I don't know why as I tend to be quite girly in the way I dress, but I've always found blue nails beautiful and many of my go-to shades tend to be in that colour family.
