As someone who very rarely wears any form of makeup on my lips, I was a bit dubious about trying such a strong, bold colour. But thanks to the lovely people at Lola Makeup I can ensure I’m date night ready all the time!

Lola Makeup has been brought together and designed by a team of beauty experts and make-up artists that clearly have a true passion for good quality makeup. With their cruelty-free makeup, everyone (including little ol’ me) can become a beauty expert.

Growing up I never had a great appreciation for good quality makeup. I used bog standard, cheap makeup which quite frankly ruined my skin. I regretted it for a while, but as a teen, I was always desperate to save and buy my own things.

For the past couple of years I’ve slowly been building up my beauty collection and discovered what works for me and what doesn’t. Dare I say it, it’s almost helped me grow as a woman 🙂 In January, despite my efforts to be more money savvy I did spend quite a bit topping up my collection. Here’s a few of my fave bits…

In one of my previous posts about my skincare faves, I mentioned that I was on the hunt for a new skincare brand to love. I have 100% found one!

A few weeks ago I was approached by the lovely Hayley from Lovegrove Essentials. A mother/daughter team, Lovegrove Essentials has grown from strength to strength over the past six years and offer a different approach to skincare. Both Hayley and Hannah have spent many years in the beauty industry, developing their understanding and knowledge of different types of skin, both for women and men.

Growing up I always had so many issues with my skin.

I was spot prone and had an oily t-zone that I had no idea to control. As a teen I used to buy cheap makeup that wasn’t great for my skin either, which really didn’t help my situation! Like most teens and people in their early twenties who go through this and worse, it’s gives you a real knock to your confidence. I remember lathering makeup on to try and cover my face more, it was awful.

2017 saw me buy my first home. This meant it was time to spend spend spend on tonnes of gorgeous bits and pieces! I’m a real home decor junkie. I love buying cute little bits to liven up a room. Even down to the kitchen! Now if you’ve ever moved in with your partner you’ll know it can be difficult sometimes if you have totally different tastes, however I’ve been very lucky. Both my other half and I have very similar styles when it comes to the home. We wanted ours to feel warm and welcoming whilst also still being quite stylish (I’ll let you be the judge of that!). I’ve also spent the year building up my makeup collection a bit more…well I say a bit more, my drawer is now overflowing and I’m going to need to invest in some proper makeup storage for once! Can anyone recommend any?

Here’s a few of my favourite bits!
