Best Travel Size Holiday Skincare Essentials

Going travelling and having to pack a wash bag full of your favourite skincare products can be a tricky process.

ColourPop X Zoella ‘My Day Ones’ Lip Bundle Review

When the initial news of the ColourPop X Zoella collection broke on Trendmood, I was curious but not exactly what you’d call excited about the collaboration. Even though ColourPop is well known for their collabs with influencers, this just didn’t seem like a good fit, especially when I could rattle…

Revolution Mega Bronzer 01 Cool Review

I’ve hit pan on my favourite bronzer from Charlotte Tilbury and, even though I reach for it daily, I refuse to fork out another £49 to replace it. It comes in a palette and I’m nowhere near finishing the highlight side yet. I’m praying for the day when Charlotte launches…

ColourPop BFF Liquid Liner Review

I’m always on the lookout for a dupe for my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner which I highly doubt I’ll ever repurchase. The closest I’ve come to is the DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX. It retails for around £16 which I understand is a lot of money to fork out, especially…

Revolution Pro Skin Finish Luminescence Highlighter

If I had bought the Revolution Pro Skin Finish expecting a blinding highlight, I’d have been sorely disappointed. Revolution does advertise this product as a highlighter, their website even goes as far as to claim that you can achieve a “foil-like” effect when applied with a fan brush; which to…

e.l.f. Cosmetics | Jelly Highlighter, Flawless Foundation & HD Powder Review

e.l.f. Cosmetics is quickly becoming one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands. Although their Poreless Primer can sometimes prove to be a mismatch for my combination skin, I regularly use my trio of No Budge Shadow Sticks and I have stopped reaching for my Tarte Shape Concealer in favour of…

Let’s Talk New Skincare with Sunday Riley & Magnitone

Recently I added two new products to my skincare routine. I always wait for at least 4-weeks after first using a product before writing a detailed review, however, I just had to update you on this latest development because I’m so fricken excited to try them both. I made the…

New Beauty & Skincare Releases | March Edit

I find myself scrolling through the ‘What’s New’ pages and filters of websites like Cult Beauty, Superdrug, Beauty Bay, Space NK and Debenhams almost daily; not necessarily to buy anything, usually just to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and releases. Trendmood, both on Instagram and Facebook, is one of…

Our Spa Getaway at Crieff Hydro feat. UK Swimwear

Since having Poppy, life has been nonstop. I recently turned the big 30, so my mum treated my little girl and I to a lovely weekend getaway at one of our favourite resorts in Scotland, Crieff Hydro. We’ve visited the Hydro many, many times in the past. Our visits have…

Happy International Women’s Day | Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls

Today is International Women’s Day, so I thought I’d quickly pop on here and share with you a beautiful and entertaining bedtime read I bought Penny a few months ago. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls (Timbuktu Labs, £12.97) by award-winning duo, Elena Favilli and Francesca Caballo is a must-have for…

ColourPop | Super Shock Shadow Swatches – The Neutral Edit

As I patiently wait for my latest ColourPop order to arrive (you’ve got to love free international shipping promos) I dived into my beloved Super Shock Shadow collection and relighted my love for the collection. The Super Shock Shadow formula is a highly-pigmented, creme-powder eyeshadow with a unique bouncy texture.…

Antipodes | Effective Nature-Loving Skincare

I know I’m a bit of a skincare junkie and have the tendency to flip flop between brands and products, which is really not recommended, but  Antipodes is a brand I always find myself coming back too. Over the years I have fallen in love with the simplicity of the…
