I’ve loved Safiya’s content for years, ever since her Ladylike days, so when I stumbled upon the fact that she’d partnered with ColorPop to release a lipstick line I HAD to get them. In fact, I went from knowing about them to ordering the full set in about 5 minutes; a good thing too since they sold out soon after.
So, two weeks and $46 later, they’re here and I love them.
Skincare can be expensive, especially with the rise of premium serums and creams hitting the market with eye watering prices (I’m looking at you Liz Earle!). I’m not gonna lie it’s nice to have a premium skin care routine from time to time, I recently used and reviewed Tropic’s ABC Skincare routine kit which you can find HERE. As much as I love ABC, sometimes the bank balance won’t stretch to a routine that costs upwards of £50, so I’ve complied a list of some products that can be used to formulate your own simple skin routine for the fairly reasonable price of £21.76 (from Boots UK). One thing I ought to mention is I formulated this routine with my own sensitive, eczema-prone messy skin in mind, however these products are to my knowledge available for other skin types such as dry or combination skin.
As my hair’s been growing out from being a pixie cut I’ve been having to change how I style it. Back when it was super short I could wash it and leave it to do its thing, but as its grown I now need to put a bit more work in. So here’s four quick and easy hairstyles for bobbed length hair.
We all have those days when we sleep through five alarms, then have 30 minutes to get ready, after spending the first ten running around like a headless chicken (just me?). Well headless chickens no more, today I’m going to tell you about a quick makeup routine that can be done in 13 minutes 19 seconds, see I even timed it for ~science~.
On Friday evening I was invited to the Tropic skin care spring product launch, run by ambassadors Jess and Seb. The evening was lovely and it was a great opportunity to see and try out the products first hand, as well as learn more about the products themselves and the Tropic company from the ambassadors. So for this week’s post I thought I’d write a little about what it was like attending this sort of event and some of the products on offer; let’s get into it.
It is well and truly spring here in the UK, and the weather has surprisingly been pretty decent. So with a new found *spring* (i’m sorry) in my step I thought I’d share my current go-to lip shades for the season.
Okay, I didn’t originally plan to review an eye shadow palette this early in the game for a few reasons. One, I don’t wear it often enough and Two, my eye-makeup skills are poor to say the least. However, when I was buying shampoo in Boots the other week I wandered over to the make-up section, as one does, and came across this beautiful palette. The colors were so pretty and summery I NEEDED them on my face, so I bought the palette along with my shampoo and played around with it.
I first got my hair bleached blonde on the 9th November 2018. It’s been bleached twice since then (the second time with added highlights) so I’ve had a good few months of learning how to look after it.
A lot of people consider bleaching their hair at least one, whether to transition to a different color or to be blonde for a while. Either way I’d thought i’d write this post and talk about my experiences with having bleached hair as well as some tips on how to care for it, enjoy!
In the latest installment of Sophie spending money she doesn’t actually have, I spend £16.97 on a heated eyelash curler. I already have a normal eyelash curler, but no APPARENTLY i felt the need to buy one that gently warms my eyeballs as well. Now i’m going to put it to the test, does it work better than a traditional eyelash curler? Is it good value for money? Has it burnt my eyelashes off? Keep reading to find out!
Fun fact! I’ve had Eczema to varying degrees of severity for as long as I’ve had skin. My skin is doing pretty good right now but I thought I might share some tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way to help soothe and heal dry skin, whether you have eczema, another skin condition or just dry and/or sensitive skin!
