The pursuit of perfection

Image result for ‪inner beauty‬‏

 “No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

I’m sure most of you would agree that in this day and age, people are more than just obsessed with being perfect. And it’s mostly focused on looking perfect. Not even a single strand of hair should be out of place, the eyebrows need to be on fleek and the skin… flawless, of course. This idea that we have all infused in our mind is a reflection of society and now, a reflection of us. More often than not, when we speak of beauty, we automatically think of physical appearance. But what about inner beauty?

A dose of travel inspo

Image result for ‪travel the world‬‏

The world is a book and those who have not travelled have only read one page. – St Augustine

I got the travel bug during university when I was on my year abroad on an exchange programme. I had some funds to spare so I decided to explore the world. Saving it for the ‘future’ probably would have been the smart thing to do but that would not have satisfied the adventurous me.  Continue reading

Pink Parcel – September 2016

Processed with Snapseed.

Pink Parcel is a monthly subscription service based on your menstrual cycle. They send you exactly what you need when you need it! The box is filled with the essential plus just the right things to brighten up the most dreaded days of the month. It also helps us avoid last minute runs to Boots! Soooo annoying *eye roll*.

It costs £10.50 per month (inc P&P) with your first month’s box for just £6.99.

The overall cost of the box is less than the value of the products which is great! However, for me, it’s less about value for money and more about getting to make my week from hell easier.

277-3004455-SMLC01_ABUDHABI_M

Hello my lovelies!

This review is actually in collaboration with Sprinkle of Surprise! As she is based in America and I am based here in England, I thought it would be fun to recommend a product to each other from our respective countries. She recommended me an American branded product and I recommended her a British one – both drugstore products. Check out Sprinkle of Surprise’s review to find out which product I recommended! And follow her on Instagram to see what she’s up to.

Arbonne Products Review: Skincare

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had been trying out some Arbonne skincare products the past month and thought I would do a review on them.

Many of you may not know about Arbonne but their products are  botanically based and earth friendly; I’m all for that! It is an online-based company so everything is available on their website.

Just a disclaimer, I am not being paid to do this – these are completely, 100% my honest thoughts:

Get My Look: Jumpsuitin’

I went to a friend’s birthday party a week or two ago at the Landmark Hotel for afternoon tea and I decided to wear this plain, beige jumpsuit but put it with lace up heels and a brighter coat to glam it up! I hardly ever wear colour so I was a bit apprehensive about wearing the coat but I think I made it work?!

Kiko Haul!

I discovered this brand when I was living in Valencia as it is better known there than it is here in London. I have to say that it immediately became one of my favourite as it’s so reasonable for the quality.

Livin’ The Smoothie Life

A couple of months ago I got into the whole ‘being healthy’ thing which meant I had to change my diet. I’m not the kind of person to always be snacking and I don’t have a sweet tooth either so my diet wasn’t awful but I still wanted to lose a little bit of weight.

When in Paris

The best thing about having friends abroad is that they know their own city and therefore are able to show you places you wouldn’t usually think of (being a tourist). Here are a few things I think everyone needs to see and do when in Paris:

Graduation Make-Up: What’s On My Face?

 As promised, here’s the post about how I did my hair and make-up for my big day!

For a day like this, I wanted my make-up to last really long and not melt off my face! Even though the weather in England isn’t really that hot, I knew I’d be running around in my robe all day and taking pictures, so I wanted it to be perfect.

fall

Many people don’t change their make up looks with the change in season and tend to stick with their normal make-up regime. But it’s nice to change it up a bit, right ?

This autumn/winter it’s all about graphic liner, smoked out eyes, flushed cheeks and bold lips!

What I Do When I’m Feeling Down

tumblr_mhh6hmE4Ly1rk8gaso1_500

I like to keep to myself when I’m upset and don’t usually talk to anyone. Some may think that that may make things worse for them and that’s fine. I, however, find that because I’m down I don’t really interact with other people in the best way and can become pretty snappy so instead of ending up upsetting others around me I think it’s better to keep to myself.

I’ve found that the best way to cheer myself up is by relaxing. Now, this could mean many things so here’s my take on ‘relaxing’:

My Morning Routine

20e1cb46114f005b9fffd339048b531c

Recently I have been getting quite a few compliments on my skin and that’s pretty unusual for me because I have always been so conscious about it as I use to have acne and still have a few acne scars.

I have to be honest though, I have seen a difference since I’ve started a proper morning routine and as I always get asked on it I thought I’d share it with you guys.
