Who doesn’t love a pretty pouch? Zipped up and just waiting to be stuffed to the seams with makeup goodies. I think beauty bags are perhaps the only items in my possession that rival my foundation/tinted moisturiser/BB Cream collection, I actually own a bag of bags, anyone else have that? Today I’m breaking it down and intro-ing you to 3 favourites; some new, some old faces. Or if you’re stuck for gift-inspo for any of the women in your life, these may be worth pondering a purchase of…

My Instagram feed is alive with the sound of bold lip posts and I’m loving it. When summer season comes around who doesn’t love to dust off the reds and slick ’em on (only for them to be forcibly removed by copious chocolate munching an hour later)? Yeah, me too.

I had to have it. The best part is this is hands down the best eyelash curler I have EVER used and I have used so many! Every damn curler I have bought always seems to pinch my eyelids because I’m trying to curl as close as possible to the root of my lashes.

So it’s only been a few months since things have got a little shorter lock-wise, but I’m already sensing what products are going to be coming to the forefront to lend their expertise on my locks.
