You'd think with my oily complexion I'd be steering clear of twinkly, sparkly highlighters, but recently, I've really enjoyed dipping into my stash of brightening and transforming powders. Highlighters have the ability to create a lit-from-within glow that truly enhances and completes any makeup look. From everyday...

I've come to the conclusion that my skin is a temperamental bugger. And yes, I just anthropomorphised my face. It's flaky, greasy, sensitive, and really rather rude, and I've become increasingly reliant on treatments to keep it under control. Here are my thoughts on six...

The lovely Rebecca (who writes From Roses and contributes to A Little Opulent) recently wrote about the brands that bloggers introduced her to in this post, and it got me thinking about the brands and products I regularly incorporate into my daily routine, that I’ve heard...

For today’s blog post, I thought I’d talk about the products I use when I’m seriously strapped for time. I wrote about my office essentials and products I like for a work environment in this post, but after a few requests from people who have absolutely...
