The Importance of Reading

Happy Sunday folks! I cannot believe that this post is the 50th one on my blog! Time has literally flown by ever since I started my blog and it makes me happy to see that I’ve reached my first milestone. Speaking of writing and blogging, I thought today I would touch on something else I…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | My Thoughts

One of the main things I can remember from my childhood is the fascinating world of Harry Potter (thank you J. K. Rowling for blessing us with such beauty!). I read and re-read all of the books and watched all the movies a dozen times over and they are still one of my favourite book…

* A Little Thank You *

So I have been doing and loving this whole blogging thing for just about a year now and I am constantly over whelmed with the amount of beautiful and moving posts that I see in this community. The amount of support all readers and bloggers have for each other is amazing and something I have…

The Eyes Have It : Lancôme Hypnôse

If I am running late, which I usually am, and need to be out the door pronto, the one thing I always remember to put on makeup-wise is mascara. Voluminous and long lashes are the one thing that make your eyes look wide awake and on a Monday morning, as I rush to my nine…

Doodling My Days Away: An Art Experiment

With the copious amount of free time I have, I decided to try my hand at doodling a little. I have seen beautiful drawings online, and Pinterest is such a great source of inspiration. I find that drawing helps to relax me a great deal, and sometimes I even surprise myself with how much my…

Hit and Miss: The Body Shop BB Cream

I am normally a big fan of BB creams and I tend to use them more often than foundations, which I find sit a little heavy on my skin. BB creams have a very light texture and a dewy finish which I find to be very comfortable for a more frequent use as compared to…

A Look At My Book Shelves : This Month’s Picks

Well technically, I don’t really have book shelves (yet!) so my books live very comfortably stacked against walls, on my window sill, under the bed, next to my pillow, in bags and boxes, and all sorts of nooks and crannies. I probably have enough books and magazines to start my own little library (my goal…

Spotlight on Skincare

Hi everyone! As much as I just want to hit the sack on those late nights and as much as I would love to be forever lazy, I have come to realise the importance of taking care of my skin and making sure it’s hydrated and there aren’t left over flakes of mascara the next…

The Mesmerising World of Street Art

On a warm summer’s evening as I strolled along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, I walked past loads of street artists, with their sketching stalls all set up, catching tourists and locals alike and convincing them with easy charm and that lulling Scottish accent to sit for a portrait. Seeing so much passion for art…

Travel Diary: Edinburgh, Scotland

If there ever was a fairy tale town, I’m convinced that Edinburgh is it. With its towering monuments and insanely beautiful architecture, I don’t think I’ve wanted to live in a city as much I did Edinburgh after a family holiday a few weeks ago. It’s called ‘Athens of the North for a reason, though…

Clarin’s Secret Weapon: First Impressions

I suppose if there is one thing everyone needs in their makeup bags, it is a banging concealer. Something to cover up those ‘yes, I stayed up until three last night to watch Gilmore Girls’ dark circles; circles even copious amounts of coffee can’t cover up! The only concealer I’ve ever had is the Collection…

New Obsessions: July Favourites

It’s scary to think that I am officially in the last month of my summer holidays and that Christmas is only five months away! (Cue panic). But with the passing of another month comes a whole horde of products and pieces that I’ve had a thing for, so today, although a little unoriginal, I thought…
