Sunny Days In Circus Lane, One of Edinburgh’s “Hidden Gems”

Sunny skies are a rare occasion in Edinburgh, and usually if they’re there, you don’t know they’re coming. It’s really unusual for me to be able to dress for good weather, but every once in awhile a few days of sun come along and I try my best to make the most of it! Otherwise I’ll have a wardrobe full of skirts, shorts, and dresses that never get worn. Luckily, I was staying on top of the weather last week and an opportunity to go to Circus Lane (in Edinburgh) and wear one of my favourite dresses on a day out with my friend arose!

Alex Steinherr Primark Range Review

Alex Steinherr Primark Review: Maximum Moisture Cream and Sleep Spa Eye Mask

Processed with VSCO with e2 preset

‘ll admit I didn’t really know who Alex Steinherr was, apart from the fact that she’s pals with Estee Lalonde. In fact, I wouldn’t have known about this range if it weren’t for Instagram. So, full thanks to Estee for helping me discover my new FAVOURITE skincare products because I am blown away! I first heard about them on Instagram, and people were commenting on the photo asking things like “are these products vegan?” And “do you test on animals?” And I thought cmon guys, don’t get your hopes up, it’s a Primark range. Well, jokes on me because they are both vegan, and animal testing-free! I didn’t think those things were possible for such an affordable range, but that just goes to show. So, here is my Alex Steinherr Primark Review. …

Woolly Sweaters By the Seaside

Woolly sweater outfit of the day meets life chat

I think it’s about time I feature a lil outfit post, so here’s my woolly sweater! My wardrobe and style is very dependent on the season. In the summertime I’m very floaty and fresh with my wardrobe. I don’t like anything too flashy, or too high maintenance. I’ll wear the same pair of jean shorts and plain t shirts with Birkenstocks day in and day out. As the weather gets colder, I always somehow find the inspiration to put a lil extra something into my wardrobe. I suddenly want to take the time to do my hair and makeup, and wear skirts with tights and cozy sweaters and turtlenecks. This year, I moved right at the beginning of September, which meant I had to pack up my entire Autumn/Winter wardrobe, and now I’m working through that summer to fall transition on a very minimal wardrobe.

The Eco-Friendly Gift Guide

Processed with VSCO with av4 preset
In honour of Earth Day I thought I would share with you an eco-friendly gift guide. Whether you’re buying for someone who’s super up on the sustainable and ethically conscious consumer movement, or you yourself want to buy more eco-friendly even when gift giving, I’ve got you covered. As the environmental movement gets co-opted by consumer culture, we’re seeing more and more eco-friendly products for different interests.

Maybelline Un-Nude Liquid Matte Lipstick Review

Gifted: The Maybelline Liquid Lipstick review features products that were sent to me free for review. All opinions remain to be my own.Maybelline Liquid Lipstick

Maybelline Liquid Lipstick Review

I’ve never received any products completely out of the blue like this before so I was surprised and excited to try these. I’m always a little hesitant when I receive a product for free. Mostly I’m thinking ‘if they’re sending it to me for free with no strings attached, how good can it be?!’ And that’s really just my own self-doubt kicking in, isn’t it? A lot of my favourite products are by Maybelline, but I have to say I’ve never been overly impressed by any drugstore lip products recently. Enter the Maybelline Stay Matte Ink, Un-Nude style.

I was instantly drawn in by the colour range in this collection. Not all of the shades are for me, and not all of the ones I love suit my skin tone nicely. But there’s really something for everyone here!
