My experience with the contraceptive implant…

This is something that can be a little controversial, but I wanted to talk about the contraceptive implant: Implanon/Nexplanon. As a bit of a backstory, I've been using the implant as my contraception or birth control since I was 16. I went to the doctor when I was 16 because I was sexually active and… Continue reading My experience with the contraceptive implant…

Mental Health: what it is like on the other side…

I've been thinking a lot lately. Thinking about all of the amazing posts I had planned. Thinking about how much more positive my relationship had been with my mum. Thinking about how the bad times maybe were less frequent than I remembered them being. Something I've discovered lately is that I don't think it matters… Continue reading Mental Health: what it is like on the other side…

To my dad, on fathers day…

As a society, we are so quick to celebrate mothers but less quick to celebrate fathers. Single mothers are praised as some of the most spectacular people (which they are), but often single fathers are forgotten. My upbringing was not particularly normal. My mum wasn't around very much and my dad raised my brothers and… Continue reading To my dad, on fathers day…

Isle of Paradise – Self Tanning Water…

I am a self-confessed fake tan lover. I don't wear it all the time, because I'm lazy, but sometimes the urge to be bronzed takes over, and I find myself standing naked in my bedroom, air drying before bed. Thankfully, after years of practice, I have pretty much got it down to a well-timed art.… Continue reading Isle of Paradise – Self Tanning Water…

The Salt Cave – Aberdeen…

I've spoken in the past about my struggles with eczema and latterly, psoriasis. Until a few years ago, most people probably had never heard of psoriasis, until Kim Kardashian brought it into the limelight as she also suffers from it. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and for more information check out my previous post about… Continue reading The Salt Cave – Aberdeen…

Updated nighttime​ skincare routine…

Happy Sunday!! As it's Sunday, I thought an updated nighttime skincare routine would be perfect because Sunday's are all about looking after yourself and relaxing. I'm honestly never too sure whether or not I apply my skincare in the right order - but these are the products I use at night time, in the order… Continue reading Updated nighttime​ skincare routine…

Nars: Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation…

When I saw that Nars was bringing out a new foundation I was so excited. I have a slight love/hate relationship with their foundations, in that, I hate their Luminous Weightless Foundation but I LOVE their Sheer Glow Foundation.  Strangely, I always wear Santa Fe which has a peach undertone which is something that I… Continue reading Nars: Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation…
