As you’ll know from last month’s post, I wasn’t happy at all with the delivery of my April Birchbox and it seems like a lot of you ended up in the same boat. So this month I was so pleased to have a knock on my door from my (chronically moody) Hermes delivery man on time. For the Dreamers The best thing about Birchbox is … Continue reading Birchbox #4 | May Unboxing
It’s that time of year where we all like to talk about the transition between the seasons. We’ve had a little taste of warmer, brighter and all in all more summery weather now… Will it last? Probably not. But that doesn’t mean we should still be clutching the coats and scarves and sticking by our winter makeup routines. I mean, if we don’t act like its … Continue reading S’all about white eyeliner right now
Let me start this post by saying I am not happy with the customer service I’ve received from Birchbox this month. Seeing other people post pictures of their beautifully designed boxes got me so excited to get mine in the post. I waited and waited and waited… until it got to the 12th and I thought hang on, where is my box? Long story short, after … Continue reading Birchbox #3 | April Unboxing
You can never go wrong with LUSH in general, so you definitely can’t go wrong with a LUSH Gift Set, (thanks KW) especially when the whole point of the set is to ‘bathe in style’ – There is literally nothing I love to do more.

Love her or hate her, there’s no denying Kylie Jenner always has a flawless face of makeup. So when she mentioned this new tip on her Snapchat and I (well, my boyfriend) just so happened to have the very product she was using in the bathroom cabinet, I’d be a fool not to give it a go right? During a makeup tutorial with MUA Hrush Achemyan, … Continue reading Nivea Men Post Shave Balm: Kylie Jenner swears by it, so I tried it for a week
Girls, we all know how annoying it can be to figure out which bag you’re going to take on a night out. You don’t want to be stuck with a normal sized one, which has everything you drag around with you day-to-day (Mary Poppins style, we all do it) but you can’t just go without one right? Where would you keep those key bits of … Continue reading Could the Sassy Stash replace your clutch bag?
As you’ll know from last month’s post I was seriously impressed with my first Birchbox delivery, so when March’s box arrived I jumped straight in to trying the products it contained. Word Up I love the theme, which is all about searching for the right beauty products for you, but sadly the products I received weren’t really what I’ve been after. The box is super … Continue reading Birchbox #2 | March Unboxing
International Women’s Day is a celebration of women around the world. To me, its a celebration of their achievements, sacrifices and the perfect opportunity to highlight just how far we have come and still have to go in the search for true equality between the sexes. You may not see it, you may not be affected by it, you might not care or even believe … Continue reading International Women’s Day: My Feminist Inspirations
First published on Kettle Mag: Let me begin this discussion by setting one thing straight. The idea that one feminist or one feminist outlook can be better than another is a thought process which never has and never will sit well with me. Does this not go against the very principle of equality? Of course, I’m in no way saying that just because you have … Continue reading Does being a vegan/vegetarian make you a better feminist?
So I’ll admit I’m late to the game here but I’ve finally hopped on board the Birchbox bus. I was so impressed with how adorable my first box was and how many ideas immediately came to me for recycling it after using all the products it contains, but we’ll get to that another time… Shine bright like a diamond February’s theme all centers around adding … Continue reading Birchbox #1 | February Unboxing
