Hey Everyone!

Hope the Monday blues didn’t get to you today, but if they did, here’s a cupcake and a mighty good one at that. Chancing upon The Hummingbird Bakery in London was by no surprise a mistake. My parents being fans of antiques led the way to Portobello Market at Notting Hill in London, a great place for trinkets and basically people’s old stuff.

Hey Everyone!

The first time I spotted Caviar nails, it instantly reminded me of yummy vanilla cupcakes and sprinkles. Of course, I thought it was a bit odd and then it grew on me. It’s an adorable nail trend and after seeing Fleur De Force’s blog post on the MUA (Make Up Academy) Nail Constellations, I had to go out and get myself some from Superdrug, the local health/beauty pharmacy in London.

Hey Everyone,

I think to some degree, we somehow have this misconception that beauty bloggers live a somewhat glamourous life. Alright, I have to admit. We get to go to launches as V.I.Ps and eat canapes while the PR agencies try to spoon feed us information, get free products and spa treatments and sometimes we get to come home to a wonderfully wrapped package from The Body Shop or Crabtree and Evelyn that leaves our friends scrambling to wordpress to make their own blogs.

Today in this post, I thought it would be handy to point out the five main methods of applying your foundation, the tools involved, what kind of foundations work best with what and the finishes that you’ll eventually receive.

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to say, wow now there are 251 of you on here and I must say welcome to the family! I’m sorry that I haven’t been updating this baby as often but my break is in 2 weeks so I need to finish mid semester exams and assignments before I can enjoy my freedom and contrary to popular belief, blogging takes more time with the pictures than filming and editing in my opinion.

Hello :)

So you’ve probably had days when you wake up in the morning and the first thing that pops into your head is some good ole retail therapy (Hi retail_therapy haha). Trying to ignore the urge, you eat your breakfast, perhaps jump on the youtube bandwagon for a bit or watch tv, but in the back of your head you’re thinking of reasons why you need to go on some sort of shopping spree.
