What I’ve Been Loving in June & July (2021)

Summer is always a fun time for beauty and fashion. Lot’s of new launches and July is my birthday month so there’s lot’s of decisions to make: “what should I get myself from my wish list?”. I have a wish list on all my favourite retailers so it’s a tough choice #spoiled. Here are some…

My Top Blushes For Spring/Summer

I have a blush problem; too many blushes, not enough storage 🙂 These are the blushes I’m loving for Summer.
