How a Backpacking Makeup Artist Stopped Wearing Makeup

Let me just get one thing straight before I start this article. You do not need makeup as a backpacker. 4 months ago when I began backpacking, there was a time where I would not walk out of my hostel without a full face of makeup on, despite it being nearly 30 degrees outside. Now, I literally have no makeup in my backpack. Continue reading


Collab’s and Combo’s

First of all, I’d like to start with a super duper sorry for not posting anything in a few days! You all know me by now, I don’t tend to keep schedule’s very well and things have been ridiculously busy with me on the work and travel front! Apart from one of the days when I was insanely hungover (it was my leaving party on Saturday night), I’ve been up to all sorts – posting for Creme de la Bride, drafting articles for the next Autumn digital issue, sorting out my travel plans and arranging collaborations with Asia La’Dawn et al, which is all pretty exciting stuff!

Going Gaga for Greige

There’s a new colour trend that’s storming the fashion, beauty and design worlds simultaneously and that colour is greige. A fabulous mix of shades between grey and beige, it’s becoming known all over the internet and people are flocking to jump on the greige bandwagon. I, myself, personally love the trend. I think that it’s an inspiring and unique shade to work with, and whilst it may sound ultra dull and boring, it’s anything but. Different greige tones include purple, lilac and even pink undertones, which make it a perfect beauty accessory. Have a look at these lovely photographs to see how you can use the colour to enhance your fashion, makeup look or even your home. Enjoy!

Beauty Blogger Award v2.0 from Tami & Natalie

I feel like today is awards day for me! I’ve been nominated for quite a few of these awards so far so I thought I’d bash them all out while I’ve got some free time tonight. I’ve done the Beauty Blogger Award before, but I love how each time someone new nominates you, you get 10 completely different (and sometimes unusual) questions to answer, so tonight I will be posting two of them, one nominated by Tami and another one nominated by Natalie. What I’m going to do, is answer all of the questions and nominate 20 people in total (or as many I can think of) and give all of ya’ll 10 questions to answer. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
