Adult Colouring Books

Adult Colouring Books: Secret Garden, Mindfulness Colouring Book
As an artistic person, I enjoy being creative but having now left uni and school I find I don't really have the time to dedicate to drawing as I used to.  I've been a big fan of colouring books for quite a while, before they began to become as popular as they do now and it's so nice to just sit down for an hour every day or two and entertain my creative side.  For those looking to get into the craze, I thought I'd share some of my favourite books, pens and a snippet of a few of my completed pages.

Posted on August 26, 2015

badger balm I think I may have a slight (okay huge!) addiction to balms...lip balms, cleansing balms, multi purpose balms you name it I love it. So when these two little beauties from Badger dropped on my doorstep lets just say it was love at first sight, that packaging! The Badger Peppermint & Tea Tree Foot Balm and Badger Blue Tansy & Lavender After Sun Balm were completely new to me, so I was very excited to give them a try.

Taming The Brows

Posted on August 25, 2015

Taming Brows: HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette in Foxy, HD Brows Precision Tweezers, Zoeva 322 Brow Line Brush and Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my brows.  I'll go through stages where I fill them in perfectly and others where my trusty fringe can hide the stray hairs I haven't quite gotten around to yet.  Still, to encourage myself to tame my brows, I picked up a couple of new products and some repurchases too from the likes of HD Brows and Anastasia Beverly Hills to get the job done.
