My love of makeup, skincare and beauty wouldn’t be so obsessive without my mum Shelley for inspiration. The woman gave birth to me with a full face of makeup on, and from that day it was pretty much set in stone that I was going...

I’ve never written a WIMB post, probably because until recently I would either shove everything into an old leather tote from ASOS, or use such small cross-body bags that could only fit keys, a purse and my phone. I recently splurged on a handbag with my...

You may have noticed something about me from reading some of my posts over the last four or five months - I LOVE American drugstore beauty products. I’ve been slowly growing a stash of blushers, mascaras and concealers, as well as an unhealthy amount of...
