So much undone.

No matter how hard we try

It is so utterly

Pointlessly crucial.

Is the greatest sin.

An unforgiveable waste

Of the most precious

Thing of all –

A glimpse of infinity.

Yet to experience it is what life is about; to know it is there and to relish it with all your heart.

Life rages.

We have to do, be and life madly. To fill the…

Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…

The TRUTH about animal derived ingredients!

Just wanted to share this with you guys because it’s important to know what you’re putting into your body.

Last week I did a poll on Instagram asking if you would rather see a video on cruelty-free dupes OR animal derived ingredients, and about 90% of you chose ingredients, so here we are! When I first started looking into cruelty-free beauty and animal testing, I wasn’t looking into ingredients, but it wasn’t long until the nasty truth came out. What are these ingredients that we are putting all over our faces? I found the top 10 most popular animal derived ingredients, and I am definitely going to be more conscious of what ingredients are in my makeup and skin care!

COCHINEAL DYE (also known as CARMINE) – this is literally crushed up beetles. These beetles feed on cactus plants in Central and South America, and the females eat red cactus berries, and when these beetles are crushed a bright red dye is produced. If your makeup is red…

Wes Craven re-invented and revitalised the slasher-horror genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Craven is happy to provide both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts – but the victims aren’t always the ones you’d expect.

5. The Shining (1980)

A No From The Universe

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while it’s because the universe hates me. My laptop’s screen broke again and I had to get it replaced. Luckily I’ve got it back now and it’s fine.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on with me. On Thursday, we decided to go to this place called Village Market and it ended up being super fun! It has a really artsy vibe and it’s just such a fun place although it’s really big so it takes forever to get from one end to the other!
