January 2018 Favourites: Sailor Moon, Gaming, BTS and More

It’s been quite a while since I last did a monthly favourites post. In fact, the last one I shared was my July 2017 Favourites and although I am still loving the likes of the Ordinary Silicone Primer I thought it was about time I talked about some other goodies that I have been loving. Reading Manga: Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura The first thing to make it into my January 2018 favourites is reading manga. I’ve been making my way through my Sailor Moon Manga Box Set. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching the Sailor Moon TV…

What Cute Items From AliExpress Can You Get In January?

If you’ve read my blog before then you’ll more than likely be aware that I absolutely love AliExpress. The site is home to thousands of cute affordable products waiting to be discovered. From jewellery, clothes and beauty products to homeware, gadgets and toys. You can pretty much get your hands on anything. I personally have ordered lots from the site including Rose Gold Oval Brushes, Sigma Brush Dupes, MAC Eyeshadow Brush Dupes and a Professional Makeup Brush Set that set me back less than £3. In December I went on a bit of an AliExpress spree, mainly ordering jewellery and accessories and today I thought…

Is The Soap and Glory Advent Calendar The Best Beauty Option?

With Christmas fast approaching it appears that more and more brands are hopping on the advent calendar bandwagon. Quite frankly some of the advent calendars that I’ve spotted are absolutely ridiculous. I mean some of the calendars are well over £100 which is pretty darn ridiculous. Especially considering that many people are more than happy with their cheap, cheerful and simple one pound chocolate calendars. That being said I have always been intrigued by the many beauty advent calendars that are on offer. But not quite enough to get me to buy one. However, this year I was very kindly…

Should You Really Feel That Guilty For Taking A Blogging Break?

I love blogging. So much so that I’ve been writing on my blog since 2009. When I began writing on my little corner of the internet I was going through a bit of a tough time. I used writing as an escape. I focused on things that I loved and enjoyed and it really helped with my mood. Fast forward a few years and here I am today. I don’t think I’ve ever spoken about this on my blog before but I suffer from anxiety and depression. I have done for a number of years now. Some days I struggle.…

Is The Ordinary Skincare Range Really That Good?

If you read my recent post on an excellent silicone primer then you’ll know that recently I’ve discovered The Ordinary. Not heard of the brand? Well, it was created by Deciem who have also created the likes of NIOD and Hylamide. The difference between The Ordinary and these brands is the prices of each product. The most affordable product from the brand is just £3.90. The reason why the products are cheap is not to do with poor ingredients. They are affordable because they use compounds that are in demand. The brand then splits them across their products. They also keep their margins…
