KICK STARTING 2017 WITH DORCO EVE 6




Good day my little rays of sunshine! I am on a hot roll with beauty blog posts at the moment which is something I always feel comes with a New Year as lots of great new products poke their heads out for me to explore! With the fresh start of 2017 and all it's wonder products emerging it began to dawn on me that with the all the craziness that overtook 2016 (aka doing some serious adulting and moving in with Ollie plus working hard on my blog) that my beauty routine had taken a huge backstep and I hadn't even realised. 

BEAUTY REVIEW | MY NYX LIPSTICK FAVES





Happy February you saucey lot.

I'm back at it again with some beauty stuff, and by that I mean here's a beauty review because I haven't done one in yonks and it's well overdue. Today I will be talking about a collection that has been building in my beauty drawers for a long time and I can not stop buying from this brand. Of course you will know from the title I am talking about NYX and in particular their lip products! My love first began in December last year when at a beauty convention I stumbled upon the NYX stall. I bought a couple of the Lingeries as I'd heard many good things and plus the packaging is tres beaut and there began my obsession. After that I began dabbling in their other lips products and now I have a pretty strong collection I would say. So here's a few of my faves from the lot...

NYX LIQUID SUEDE : SOFT SPOKEN | CHERRY SKIES
So I would have to say this is my favourite product compared to the rest as the formula is pretty damn good. The lipstick is very comfortable to wear and has zero crumble which for me is a must must must. They have a huge array of colours with this range and in fact one of the colours I chose 'soft spoken' was first premiered by the Olsen Twins at the 2015 Met Gala. So if it's good enough for MK & Ashley then I'm definitely a fan. The semi satin to matte dry finish is one of my favourite things about this product as it looks so good and lasts well throughout the day.

Happy February all you lovely people!

For many of us old romantics at heart Valentine’s Day is one of best events of the year. Getting to dedicate a whole day of being extra smushy and loved up is a definite positive, but of course Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be for the people in our lives who provide all the lovey dovey stuff. It can also be a day to celebrate the love of your most cherished ones. Whether it is your superhero mum or that one best friend you can’t live without, this is a day you can really show your love (besides Birthdays and all that jazz).

BLOGGING EVENTS | OVERCOMING THE BIG FEAR



Hello all you lovely people

I'm throwing myself back all the way to early December when I attended a bloggers event for the launch of a Jewellers in my nearby town of Colchester.  I have never been to any local events so it was pretty exciting to know I was going to meet some local bloggers rather than going to my usual London events (which obvs are great) but means I don't get to meet any local people! 

The evening was hosted by the Gallery at Upchurch which is a Jewellers based in Essex. It was a launch night for their shops new redesign and they wanted to invite bloggers to come and soak up the new interiors and of course take some fab photos of the night. On arrival we were greeted with plenty of Prosecco and a delicious array of light finger food so with my tummy feeling pretty content I started wandering around getting ready to take some snaps. Whilst I mingled amongst people I started to think about the anxieties and fear that revolve around blogging events for many of us (especially if you are new to it all) and how I myself learnt to overcome it.
