Selfridges Festival Beauty Box

Aloha! How is everyone today? Not gonna lie I had the best day with some of my besties. We went to our local Hilton in Templepatrick for a Spa day & then wedding dress shopping for my friend who recently got engaged!! Feeling very relaxed & very grown up right now, I'll be honest. 


Bringing me back to my youth is the Selfridges Festival Beauty Box you see pictured above! I picked this up the other week in London and have slowly but surely been making my way through the goodies inside. If I like them enough I may even tell you more about them! (Spoiler alert: I definitely am "in Like" & "Almost Love" with some of these so you will definitely be hearing more!)

For now I'll leave you with a few snaps of the contents. Not pictured in close up are the NPW face wipes & Violent Lips Lip Appliques because... Well they're face wipes & unused lip tattoos. Only so much you can do with that! 


 Illamasqua Liquid Metal metallic cream
Coloursmash Hair Shadow
I was really having fun with the dotty tissue paper the box came with. Loves me some funky tissue paper!!
NPW chubby glitter stick
Topshop lip crayon in Powder Room
Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Moxie Lip Gloss

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …
