Yesstyle Korean Skincare Haul

Yesstyle Korean Skincare Haul, NEOGEN, Etude House

My original post for today has been shoved down the queue to make room for my excitement when this wonderful K Beauty package arrived on my doorstep. Yesstyle is the only online store I constantly scroll through and peruse as a leisure activity. They are always adding new lines and have a plethora of Korean and Japanese beauty brands at affordable prices. The last time I shopped skincare on there was in this post which was nearly a year ago now. Clearly, it was time for another dose of K beauty loving.

Why I Love Sponges To Apply My Makeup

Why I Love Sponges To Apply My Makeup

I've never tried the Beauty Blender and I don't think I need to. Because I've found an amazing makeup sponge that does the job (very well) for a fraction of the price. Barely Cosmetics Sponges have been my go to sponge of choice and my most reached for "beauty tool" since last year. I've written an entire blog post about the range titled "3 Sponges For Your Beauty Routine" if you're interested. But wanted to highlight them again because they have really made such a huge difference to my makeup application. I've gone back and forth between using fingers, brushes and sponges and I keep coming back to their Soft Definer Sponge.

Non Beauty Related Things I'm Loving Right Now,etsy, stickers, stationery, london graphic center,

Primarily, I've always been a beauty blogger so naturally you'd expect me to have many a beauty favourite, especially on the skincare front. However, this year I've been trying to shine the spotlight a little on some of the other things I love and use/enjoy within my lifestyle. I would also of course love for you to share your own non beauty favourites in the comments section and if you too are a blogger, leave a link to any related posts. I enjoy reading blog posts over breakfast. ;)

SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick | Fermented Skincare

SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick Fermented Skincare

For many reasons, this last week has been a bit of a dud despite having a refreshing 25th birthday. In the spirit of warming up to some positive vibes for the week ahead, I wanted to spend this Sunday writing about skincare. Two things that go hand in hand for me (writing + skincare)! I've mentioned the SU:M37 Rose Cleansing Stick in my 5 Top Facial Cleansers post but I felt it deserved a more in depth review. I had put this cleanser to the side when I started testing out others and in the last month it has returned to the front row shelf and I remembered why I loved it so much.

Summer City Skin Protection

Summer City Skin Protection, sun care, spf, anti pollution, hydrate

Summer means evenings winding down outside with the sun, lunchtimes in the park and more time strolling down those city streets. There's nothing wrong with wanting to bask in a little sun and the land of the outdoors, soaking up those feel-good vibes. However, it's important we look after our skin during this time. Scratch that,we should be looking after our skin all of the time. Sun and pollution damage aren't seasonal concerns. Thankfully, there's a lot more awareness now on these issues. Here are my favourites to stay protected.

25 Life Lessons & Achievements In My Twenties

25 Life Lessons & Achievements In My Twenties

Yesterday it was my birthday. Yesterday I turned 25. If you'd asked me 6 months ago, I'd have forbidden anyone from even mentioning that I was turning this age. Because 25 is exactly mid-twenties. Is it not meant to be that point when you've got things figured out? I look around at people I know both younger and older than me in this twenties club and think "why have they got their shit together, and not me?". They've got houses, flats, husbands, long term boyfriends, pets and kids. I've got...two cats. As you would expect, I was looking at it the wrong way. It shouldn't be about what I don't have. It shouldn't be about comparing cards under the table to see who's got the better hand. It shouldn't be about striving for the life that somebody else has.
