“How Do You Feel About It” – Adichie for Harper’s Bazaar

There’s always been a sense of elation and an unexplainable thrill that rushes through me when I see that one of my favourite authors has written a new book or in this case a new short story for a magazine that I’ll shortly be interning for. To say I was excited was an understatement! The…

The Glow Up: Must-have Products for Glowy Skin

I’m one of those people who likes to have fresh, dewy looking skin all year round, whether it’s the middle of winter or the depths of summer (even when my makeup is most likely going to melt off anyways!). I always opt for a makeup-look thats light on the coverage and heavy on the freshness,…

Half of a Yellow Sun

A little peruse through my book shelves recently brought me across “Half of a Yellow Sun” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I was first introduced to her work in one of my University courses, which instilled a curiosity in me to read more about her world on paper and this novel is one of my favourites….

All That Blooms – Tarte Cosmetics

In the midst of exam revision, deadlines and the general monotony that are the few months before summer, there seems to be very little that excites me. But, my makeup bag has seen a few welcome additions in these past months. Some items were replacements and some were a few cheeky new additions. One was…

Jumping back on the Wagon, New Impressions and Old Favourites

Hello Blogosphere, long time no see! Now, I could come up with a whole hoard of excuses to explain why I’ve been AWOL for the past few months, but it all boils down to one simple little fact: Second Year Sucks. When graduate students told me last year that second year was the hardest time…

Take A Little Time…

Being a student at university means you get to meet a lot of people. Meeting a lot of people means there’s plenty of conversation (unless you don’t like the person you’re talking to…). I can guarantee you that the phrase ‘I’ve been so busy’ gets tossed about like it’s a volley ball a few times….

Full Time Student, Part Time Blogger: My Scheduling Tips

With the start of my second year at University looming and my to do list growing bigger day by day, I often find myself wondering where in the heck my time has gone! Whether you’re new to the blogosphere or whether you’re an old friend around these parts, you’ll know how much time and effort…

New Obsessions: August Favourites

It never fails to surprise me how fast a month seems to go by. I was particularly sad to see August go by as it meant it was time for me to go back to University for my journalism internship before classes started. The summer was one of my best so far and now with…

Spoon Full Of Sugar

As my second year of University dawns, I’ve had time to think about what I want to achieve from this year, both academically and personally. That’s also brought into question the notion of success, happiness and contentment and what it means to be able to have a healthy balance of all three. So often we’re…

Drugstore Beauty Edit | Collaboration with Stephanie Bradbury

Recently drugstore companies have been really stepping up their game when it comes to beauty products and every time I head into Boots or Superdrug I tend to come out with two or three things that I had no intention of buying (like every other girl, I’m sure 😉 ). So today I thought it…

So You’re Going to University : My Tips

It’s that time of year again, when A-Level results come rolling in and all the months of anxious waiting are finally over and you get the happy news that you’re off to your chosen University in September. If that’s you, then let me congratulate you for sticking through high-school and getting this far, and wish…

Brush It Off

As you all probably know by know, I tend to get quite lazy which is why I also tend to look for products that are multi-taskers and get the job done in minimal time. But being lazy also means that I HATE washing my makeup brushes, but unfortunately it’s something that just has to be…
