Falling in Love with Makeup again

Rewind back to 2011. I was a young sixteen year old attending my first year at college. I was studying Software Design, I was studying in a very male dominated industry, I had my first job (a waitress of course!) and I had my first wage packet. Every Friday I walked out of my job with three £10 notes and whatever tips I had managed to earn. I loved it – spending every Friday night working? Um, not so much but working hard and earning money? I was all over it.

The much needed hair refresh with Live True …

I’ll be perfectly honest… I thoroughly dislike getting my hair done. And yes, I know, I know this is coming from someone with highlighted and toned hair! Because of my colour choice and the maintenance of it, of course, I have to visit my salon often and admittedly, now that I have finally found a local salon and hairdresser that I love, who I get on with well and knows just how I like my hair, my salon experience is no longer a case of avoiding booking and sitting there with a ball of knots in my stomach.

The Latest In Beauty Fabulous Beauty Awards 2018 Box

I love a beauty box. Aren’t they just the best idea? You choose which box you are going to go for, wait for it to be delivered and then you get to try samples (and even some full sized) beauty products. They are the perfect excuse to give something a new a go before you splurge your cash on it and they introduce you to new brands you perhaps wouldn’t have thought of trying before. Plus, who doesn’t love those little sample sized things? Sample-sized products are so blooming perfect for chucking in your handbag or your travel makeup bag. I just love them.

Introducing the Isle Of Paradise Tanning Water

Abbi writing a blog post on self-tan?! I’d never thought I’d see the day. You see, the thing is, I am a complete rookie when it comes to tan. A beginner, a bit of scaredy-cat. Haunted by the days of magazines featuring ‘dodgy fake tan disasters’ with horrifying pictures of patchy, streaky, bright orange tan which was enough to put even the most daring of sixteen-year-olds off. Even at the ripe ol’ age of twenty-two I have only just about managed to embrace a nifty gradual tanner. But, alas, it wasn’t enough. I can’t afford to go on a beach holiday often enough to make sure I’m that beautiful shade of bronze goddess twenty-four seven. It is just unrealistic and then it hit me… I needed to face my fears head on and head for the bottle.
