No Tangle Styler Brush Review (Tangle Teezer Dupe) || Sample Sundays

I first came across this product whilst browsing through my Mid Summer Blogger Meet goody bag. I'd previously avoided the Tangle Teezer hype as I thought it wasn't a product well suited to my thick Afro hair texture, but decided to give the No Tangle hair brush a try anyway!

3 Quick and Easy Neutral Eye Makeup Looks

I love a pop of colour on the eyes every now and again, but for the most part I really like to keep my makeup natural and this includes my eye makeup. As I'm such a fan of neutral eye makeup, I thought I would share three of my favourite neutral eye makeup looks. They are all really quick, simple and easy to achieve.

Spot the Difference: Mac Rebel Dupe

Some of Macs most popular lipsticks are reds., and Rebel is no exception. It's satin finish means it isn't as drying on the lips as matte finish lipsticks like Ruby Woo. Preparation is still key so make sure you exfoliate and moisturise your lips before applying this lipstick ( I like to use Burt's Bees Honey lip balm).  Mac describe Rebel as a "mid-tonal cream plum" which I think is a fairly accurate description. Although the colour does look darker in the tube compared to on the lips.

I don't often make such bold statements but I have to say I've tried my fair share of lip balms but the one I'm reviewing in this video is by far the best. If you've watched any of my empties videos or you've read some of my haul posts, then I bet you can guess what product I'm talking about. If not, why not watch the video below to find out?

To Embrace or To Fear || Monday Moments #7

It's been said the only thing constant in life is change. Change is everywhere and comes in many different forms. Maybe you're getting ready to go back to Uni, or you're starting a new job? Maybe you're moving house or  have just started a new relationship? Either way we all experience change in one form or another.

Confessions of a Beauty Blogger

If you've read my The Cost of Beauty blog post, then you will know that the average woman spends around £133,575 over a lifetime on her face, hair and body. I did a Google search and that's more than enough to buy a three bedroom house in a nice location. So what does this have to do with today's post? Well as I'm sure you've realised by now, I like makeup and shopping.

July Catchup

This year seems to be flying by super quickly, I can't believe we are already in August! As I mentioned in a Monday Moments post a few weeks ago, sometimes it's good to take a step back and look at the bigger picture and that's exactly what I've been doing the last week or so (hence the lack of posts). I'm excited for what this month has in store, but why not check out some of my favourite posts and videos from the month of July below.

Have you got your makeup on this morning? || Monday Moments #7

**Guest Post**
Hi everyone, I'm Sophie. I write a little blog over at I just want to say thank you to Feyi for letting me post on her blog. As a beauty blogger I don't do a lot of posts like this, and I've loved doing it. So thank you Feyi for inspiring me to be more open and creative with my posts!

It's an everyday occurrence where people wear makeup, I find if you're out without makeup on people look at you, maybe not in a disgusted way, but they look, you're not flawless, your skin tone isn't one shade, you're eyes aren't perfect, and yeah you may have a few blemishes, but so what? Everyone is like it in the end!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Review (355 Coconut) || Sample Sundays

In this week’s Sample Sundays post I'll be review my current favourite drugstore foundation, which is the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. Truth be told, I don't often wear drugstore foundations as it's very hard to find a brand that includes my colour, so thumbs up to Maybellie for starting to branch out into a wider range of colours.

What's your Biggest fear? And how to Overcome It || Youtube

I've wanted to do a video about fear for a while! I think we have all experienced fear in one form or another and in different degrees. My main issue with living in/with fear is that it hinders your progression and therefore stops you from taking opportunities that could be once in a lifetime or taking that next big step. In this video I share some top tips on how to begin overcoming fear on a daily basis.

To Act or To React? || Monday Moments #5

If you've read my 20 Things I’ve Learnt in 20 Years blog post you may have noticed that this is actually one of my favourite quotes. This famous quote believed to have originally been said by Eleanor Roosevelt, continuously reminds me that we have a lot more power than we often give ourselves credit. But why is this?

Hardship || Monday Moments #4

I came across this quote last week and really liked it. Some of you guys might know that I'm a bit of a rom-com fan, I love watching movies with happy endings. But unfortunately life isn't as simple or easy as a movie, we often have to face trials and hard times.

The Time is Now || Monday Moments #3

Do you ever find yourself wishing away the days. Maybe (like me) you can't wait for your next holiday, or you can't wait till you find a new job, or there's something else (insert thing here) you can't wait for. Looking ahead is great, but what about right now, what about the present?

Sticks and Stones || Monday Moments #2

Growing up I often heard the phrase, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me”. In theory this sounds great doesn't it…but in hindsight I’m not so sure if this is true.
