Valentines Day Gift Ideas

I am not a Valentine’s day fan. Don’t get me wrong I like a card of acknowledgement (lol) but I am not one for the over exaggerated ideas of ridiculous displays of love- giving or receiving. It’s false and forced. It is like when you are in a relationship and one says to the other “Tell me you love me” and the other one does but neither feel it. It is fake… it it totally fake. That aside, there is a hell of a lot of you that love it and want to be given  ...

Well January went by in a blink of an eye. For me it was the most un-Januaryist January of my life. and here we are, the first week in February already.

Lengthening Lashes without a trip to the beautician

I have never been a huge fan of false lashes. In the past 5 years I think I have worn them 5 times. If that. The last time I wore them was at my wedding and they irritated me all day. I think you can even tell in some of my wedding pics. In hindsight I should have just had a lash lift or extensions. You could hardly see my eyes. That is one thing about myself I actually like. My eyes. Since having Laser Eye Surgery 5 years ago ( I should probably write about that) I make sure I look after  ...

Perking Up with Amika

Amika has always had great packaging. I wanted to start with that line because above absolutely everything they catch your eye where ever you look. It is vibrant and super pretty and it makes you want to buy it for sure. But what about the product inside? Well I wanted to put that to the test. Amika was started in 2007 in Brooklyn and has quickly taken the hair industry by storm. Appearing in Birchbox UK subscription boxes they stole the hearts of many, including mine, in the September 2016  ...
