Weekly Wrap Up: 30-6th November/ December 2020 – Self-Care Social with Makeup Soc, Christmas Party & All Time Low Gig! | ep97

Hey everyone, I’m coming back at you with another weekly wrap up! This week was a pretty busy one, full of new and exciting online events, as well as some gaming with friends. I did sadly fall out of daily yoga, but I think I need to have a wider look at my morning routine and things like that to get it back in properly without stressing about time and things, because that doesn’t help with the whole relaxation and taking time for yourself thing! Nonetheless, we had the first week of December thrown into the wrap up mix, so keep reading to find out what I got up to, from sustainable fashion talks and Netflix watch parties, to a virtual Christmas party to get everyone into the festive spirit!

Weekly Wrap Up: 23-29th November 2020 – Makeup Soc East Asian Beauty Event, Pokémon Watch Party & Decorating for Christmas! | ep96

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you with another weekly wrap up! I really tried to keep myself busy this week, continuing to explore working out more often; even bringing back daily yoga for its stretching and mindfulness benefits, as opposed to labelling it as a workout, because that’s what I feel like made me drift out of doing it for a bit, as it took away the aspect of making time for yourself, which I love. I also got super creative with my baking, and jumped into embracing the virtual events that have become our new reality, so keep reading to find out what I got up to this week – from watch parties to virtual makeup soc events, as well as starting to get into the festive spirit!

Aldi Pixi Dupe? – Lacura Healthy Glow Rose Toner vs Rose Tonic

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you with another Aldi dupe (check out my Aldi ABH Norvina palette dupe post if you haven’t already) for this week’s beauty post; this time, it’s a skincare one! I was once again browsing the beloved middle aisle with a fine-toothed comb to see what bargains and dupes I could sniff out; it was there that I saw this absolutely blatant dupe for the Pixi Rose Tonic – the Lacura Healthy Glow Rose Toner!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I absolutely love a natural, glowy look when it comes to my skin (check out my Revolution Glass Skin review for reference), however it’s often hard to find “rose” toners that don’t irritate my sensitive skin. It’s for this reason, along with my dislike for the Pixi Retinol Tonic (check out my review for more details) that I’m always a bit reluctant to make big purchases like the Pixi Rose Tonic for £18, when I’m not sure if my skin will even like it. Coming in at just £3.99, keep reading to find out how Lacura’s answer to Pixi’s cult product performed!

Weekly Wrap Up: 16-22nd November 2020 – Makeup Soc Deciem Masterclass, Mexican Night & Festive Film with Hannah! | ep95

Hey everyone, I’m coming back at you (for the first time in ages) with another weekly wrap up! I hadn’t written one of these in ages due to feeling like I wasn’t doing enough to write about during lockdown (if that makes sense). That being said, I’ve realised now that I really love writing these and need to not put so much pressure on myself to do what other people perceive as fun, but instead to make more virtual and at-home plans because I want to, to keep myself busy! This week was a little busy work-wise, but I did manage to eat some top quality food, as well as getting in some super fun virtual plans. From skincare masterclasses to festive film watching sessions – keep reading to find out what I got up to!

Aldi ABH Palette Dupe? – Lacura Moon Dust vs Norvina | In-Depth Comparison

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you this week with a long-overdue review of the Aldi Lacura Moon Dust Palette! If you’re looking at this thinking “this looks familiar!?” then no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you; Aldi are back at it again, this time choosing to tackle the legendary Anastasia Beverly Hills with their Norvina palette dupe. I haven’t tried the actual Norvina palette, but I’ve previously reviewed Subculture, Riviera and Modern Renaissance on here, so I’m familiar with the standards of the ABH formula.

When I saw this on the beloved middle aisle for £6.99 (the best part of going shopping in lockdown, to be honest), as opposed to ABH’s £46, I immediately knew that I had to snap it up and review it for you all. They also had a dupe of Modern Renaissance, but I wanted to get the one with a colour scheme that I don’t already have, so keep reading to find out whether Aldi have managed to effectively dupe the Norvina palette!

Blogoween Bitch Tries: Corpse Bride-inspired Eye Look | ep12

I know I haven’t been incredibly on it with the halloween content this year (well on my blog, anyway, if you follow me on instagram you’ll have seen that I’ve been doing some spooky baking and stuff where I can). It’s just been a really busy period for me lately and I’m slowly trying to sort of get a good routine back, but I had a lot of fun doing a mini photo shoot for this look, so I absolutely had to post about it.

I won’t include a review in this post like in my In The Tall Grass one from last year, as I feel like everyone has already seen this movie, and it’s no secret that I love it (and everything Tim Burton has to offer). That being the case, I decided to take full advantage of Corpse Bride being on Netflix, so keep reading to see a tutorial for the look that it inspired me to create!

My Highlighter Palette Collection

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you this week with another collection post as I really enjoyed doing my blush one, and it’s safe to say I have a lot of highlighters to show you guys. I thought I’d start off with my palettes in this post to split this category up, as I have a lot of single ones, so here we are!

If you know me, you’ll know that I’ve always loved highlighters a little too much, as I just think they’re so stunning and the perfect end to your makeup look. But anyway, enough gushing – keep reading to see what highlighter palettes I own so far, as well as some swatches so you can see my current colour palette!

My Blush Collection

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you with something a bit different this week, as we delve into my ever-growing blush collection! I didn’t used to be a fan of blush back in the old days, when I was more self-conscious about my skin, as I thought it’d just highlight the redness that I naturally have. However, with the emergence of the e-girl blush style where you take your blush higher and blend it onto your nose and up into your temples, I found a blush style that I think looks super cute and works super well on me, so I started to expand my collection. Keep reading to see what blushes I own so far, along with swatches of all of them so you can see my general colour palette!

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you with another weekly wrap up! This one is a little late, as I had a bit of a busy week, from spending time with Emily before she headed off to uni, as well as going on a date with Rory and having a spontaneous visit from Ellis. I also decided to take a few days to just chill a little bit before getting started with my new job, so keep reading to find out what I got up to!

That being said, I’m back today with another weekly wrap up, featuring a little catch up on where I’ve been, what I’ve been up to and a super exciting personal announcement (in my eyes).
