Popular Classics I REALLY Didn’t Like

I’ve read a lot in my life. I’ve always loved books, so I have a lot of opinions on books. I tend to not really tell people what books I dislike, because some people get really angry when you don’t like their favourite book. That, and the fact that it doesn’t matter. But I’ve been […]

Review: It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid

I’ve been trying to find out new things that work with my rosacea. I’m not too bothered by it, unless it pokes through my makeup and makes my face look weird, but for it to be less would be nice. So I am trying out some new things to calm down my skin! This will […]

Review: Holika Holika All Kill Oil to Foam Moisture Cleansing Oil

My skin is horrible. I’m not even going to be fake positive about it. I’ve got extremely dry skin (to the point it will bleed in winter), it’s sensitive-ish, I’ve got acne AND acne rosacea. It’s one big party, honestly. I was looking for a new face wash and decided to get this one by […]

We’re almost halfway through the year already. Which, honestly, doesn’t feel like it to me! Summer is my favourite season so it feels like it’s still winter to me! I’ve already reached my reading goal of the year (more than 50 books and counting!) so I felt like it was time to have a look […]

Review: the Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior

Christian Dior is credited to be the inventor of the New Look in 1947. His use of fabric after the war was equally scandalous as it was amazing. Fabric became a luxury in the war, and the New Look used a lot of fabric to get the fullness in the skirt. Long story short; Christian […]

Review: Mario Badescu Kera Moist Cream

I’ve tried so much Mario Badescu, it’s getting boring, if I’m honest! This’ll be the last one in a while, don’t you worry! A few weeks ago I wrote a blogpost about the Kera Moisturizer, and I said I thought I would probably like the cream better. So here I am, I tried it out, […]
