Creating Sleek Hair Without The Hair Spray

I was born with curly hair.

I didn’t have straighteners until my 16th birthday and quite frankly, having wavy hair was not the one during puberty. Since then, I’ve spent the past twelve years straightening my hair and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The trouble I now have is static and the amount in my hair is an absolute joke.

But now, I’ve discovered the solution – it’s not hair spray!

Taking Care Of Yourself During Your Period

Period.

A word in which you can use to make any man feel remotely uncomfortable within a couple of seconds.

When I got my first period at the age of eleven, I was relived. It was the first time in my life that I felt like a woman, but my god, nobody prepared me for the cramps and the pain in which half the population would suffer from in years to come.

Having a period isn’t just about bleeding once a month (sorry!), it is about looking after yourself during that time.

Travel Essentials With I Love Cosmetics

Fun fact: I have never travelled with a mini version of my favourite products.

No matter the weight limit, I always ensure that I travel with plenty of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body butter and perfume. It’s not about limiting myself to a little bit of product at a time, but it is more for my own personal preference.

I have used I Love Cosmetics on and off for a number of years – using their products mainly for when I travel as the quality is superb for when my skin feels dry.

Glamour On The Go With Givenchy

When you hear the word Givenchy, you automatically think of glamour.

I have wanted to get my hands on their Glamour On The Gold palette for quite a few months now after seeing it on the way home from our Amsterdam trip and so you could imagine my excitement when World Duty Free very kindly gifted me the palette.

The best thing is, they didn’t even know I had my eye on it. Sheer luck!

The Perfume Everyone Asks Me About

Perfumes are the one aspect of beauty that I hardly ever purchase.

In my eyes, they’ve always been something to add to my Christmas or birthday list because I never know what else to ask for.

I’ve only ever owned three perfumes: the purple one from Victoria Beckham which saw me through high school and college, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream which I fell in love with in Brisbane Airport when I had a seven hour lay over as well as Daisy Eau So Fresh which I’m desperately running very, very low on.

When World Duty Free kindly gifted me a bottle of Girl Of Now by Elie Saab, I was intrigued as to whether I’d like it or not as I’m very fussy when it comes to perfume.

My First Impressions Of Pixi Glow Tonic

When it comes to skincare, I have always kept my routine simple and to a minimum of steps – cleanse, tone, moisturiser and a face mask twice a week.

But during Winter, I noticed that my skin was lacking a glow. It looked dull, almost lifeless (perhaps I should smile more) and no amount of highlighter was helping.

I have heard a great deal about the Pixi Glow Tonic from the blogging community – everyone speaking very highly of the product and so, I thought it was about time that I purchase a bottle and try it out for myself.

What’s New In My MakeUp Collection

My makeup collection has never been big.

I’ve always kept it quite minimal; constantly repurchasing my favourites and never really trying out any other brands. Even when I try to do my makeup a little bit different, it always ends up looking the exact same.

But when the Mr and I were in Prague at the end of March, I somehow accidentally fell into Sephora twice. When you’ve got a lot of foreign money left over before you fly home, it’d be rude not to treat yourself, right?

Travel Exclusives With World Duty Free

I think we can all agree that duty free is the best part about being in an airport.

It’s the only place where I can really justify spending that little bit extra on myself when it comes to makeup and perfume.

I am extremely honoured to be working in collaboration with the wonderful team at World Duty Free for this post and to showcase the fantastic beauty products in which they have kindly gifted to me.

The Face Masks Which Saved My Skin

I have always been lucky with my skin.

I’ve never had acne, I’ve never had a major breakout but I do get spots when I’ve eaten bad foods and I’ve also had the occasional allergic reaction rash.

It was Victoria who introduced me (and the rest of her viewers) to the L’Oreal Pure Clay face masks. I would have never turned to a makeup brand for skin care before and now, I rely heavily on them and their incredible products.
