Ride or Die Makeup Tag

Hiya bellas, So I’m sure by now you’ve noticed the new look and feel of the blog. If you haven’t, what do you think? I really wanted to update the theme to something more simple and sophisticated.

Wishlist Wednesday – Too Faced x Nikkie Tutorials

July Favourites

OMG can you believe it’s August already. I don’t know where this year is flying to but I just can’t keep up. I already feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day to get stuff done and now not enough days in a year. It feels like everyday is such a rush and we don’t properly get to enjoy what’s happening around us. I feel in some way this blog grounds me. It gives me a chance to sit down, think and write about what I love. So without any further ado, here’s the products I’ve been loving for…
