Forced Positivity In Blogging & Why It's Okay To Be Sad

Hello, my loves! Today's topic is going to be very different and a little difficult to talk about, but it's something that's been on my mind for a while. I am going to start off with a little confession - personally, I have always struggled with happiness. And I think that a lot of people do, actually. It's not that I'm always sad, but I definitely find it difficult to always think positively, and to achieve that level of unbreakable, carefree happiness that's often promoted on blogs and social media. Sometimes, I let things get to me too easily, and a lot in my life is far from perfect - but that's only natural. I honestly don't believe that it is possible, normal or healthy for anyone to be 'always happy'. Life happens, and we all have our own struggles, insecurities, and battles to fight. All of those things - good or bad - are what makes us human, and we should never deny them.

Makeup Haul + First Impressions! Urban Decay, NYX, Benefit And More

Hello, jelly beans! It's been a while since I got myself any new makeup (I'm committed to using up what I already have first, although all it takes is a 20% off Feelunique voucher to convince me otherwise!), so today I am very excited to be bringing you a little haul. It's a combination of popular drugstore and high-end goodies which had been on my wishlist for months, so I was very curious to find out whether they live up to the hype. I hope you enjoy this little shop and tell!

Testing Out A £200 Perfume... Is It Worth It?! 'Spring Flower' By Creed

Hello, lovelies! Today, I am very excited to finally review a fragrance that I've been wanting to talk about for a long time - Spring Flower by Creed. This perfume retails for £190 (!) on the Creed website, and it is easily the most expensive and luxurious scent that I have ever tried. Now, luckily, I did not have to spend nearly £200 on this fragrance - I love my perfumes, but I don't think I could ever do that! I actually found this little gem in my local TK Maxx for just £50, which is an amazing discount and one that I just could not walk away from. Today, I will be sharing with you my (brutally!) honest thoughts on this incredibly expensive scent. Hope you enjoy!

Bargain Finds - £15 Too Faced 'Love' Eyeshadow Palette + Swatches!

Hello, loves! Today, I am very excited to share with you a review of this gorgeous Love Collection eyeshadow palette by Too Faced. This palette typically retails at £40, but a local TK Maxx had quite a few of these for just £15, which is a pretty good bargain! I was immediately drawn to the lovely packaging and the warm tonality of this palette; plus, from my experience, you really can't go wrong with the Too Faced formulas. Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this little bargain find. Hope you enjoy!

Hello, my loves! Today, I am very excited to be bringing you my seasonal fragrance recommendations - we are doing it for the third year in a row now, and keeping the tradition going strong! Now, I know that autumn is still one day away, but personally, I just can't wait for it. I am not a huge fan of summer, and I much prefer the cool, crispy, pumpkin-spiced goodness that is autumn. And, as we're celebrating the start of this new season, I wanted to share with you a few of my top perfume picks that will keep you smelling lovely all throughout this autumn. Hope you enjoy!

Where Have I Been? + Quick Life Update

Hello, my lovelies! It's been a long time since my last post, and I am back today with a little life update. A month ago or so, I decided to take a break from blogging and social media, take some time out for myself and figure out what I want to do with my blog. As much as I've missed being part of the online world, I think that taking a long break was one of the best blog-related decisions I've ever made.

Is GlamGlow worth your money? Trying out the £40 ThirstyMud mask + honest thoughts!

Hello, loves! I am super excited for today's post, as we will be talking about something that I've been wanting to try for years! I've always heard such amazing things about GlamGlow (although I've also heard that it's completely overpriced), and I've always wanted to get my hands on it to see what all the fuss is really about. Now, I am not the sort of person that likes to spend a lot of money on skincare - my entire skincare collection is probably worth less than the cost of just one GlamGlow mask. However, I also believe that good skincare is worth investing in, especially considering that my skin has been in a very sorry state lately. I decided to finally take the plunge and buy the GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment mask (£40, Boots), which seemed to fit my skin's needs the most. Today, I'd like to share with you my honest experience with this face mask. Hope you enjoy!
