WHAT GOING MAKEUP FREE HAS TAUGHT ME

June 11, 2018


I've gone makeup free for almost 2 whole months now (other than pops of lipstick) and this entire process had me questioning a lot. Thinking to myself that, 'isn't it weird that not wearing makeup can been seen more unusual than actually wearing makeup?' How we're encouraged by marketing schemes that by using certain products we develop into more desirable and beautiful individuals. That by following whatever beauty trends that are current you become.. more attractive? The dependence that we have on makeup to make us feel better, more structured within our day to day lives, or a form of escapism from our true selves. All very deep things to think about, but as an individual who has been wearing makeup from her early teens, I suppose this was a wake up that was needed. 

A WEEK IN PICS 14TH - 20TH MAY

I've had this blog for numerous years, but have never really posted anything quite as personal. As I write this I'm eating a salted caramel brownie, the rain is pouring outside, I've got some green tea on the go and I'm listening to my spotify playlist. I'm wanting to be a lot more natural with my words and writing, rather than over thinking posts and forcing words. I'm forever reminding myself that if it's not as fun, I probably shouldn't be doing it. Anyways..

SKIN COMPLICATIONS + GOING ON A BEAUTY PRODUCT CLEANSE

April 16, 2018



I'm so so sad to write this post but due to recent events, I've been left to throw away 98% of my makeup and skincare. Welp. Last Sunday morning, I had woken to find the right side of my face almost entirely covered in cuts, scabbing and blisters, which left ya girl shook. It was later on, that I had found out that my skin had most likely reacted to the products that I had used the night before, which had caused an inconvenient and not very pretty skin infection.
