I recently saw a Tweet that almost made me wet myself with excitement. It was Cosmopolitan UK, posting a review of… what was that? Poundland’s very own makeup line?! As you know, I love Poundland. And Pound World. And the 99p Shop (oh yes, that exists). Luckily, there’s a Poundland literally a mile up the road from me, so yesterday I popped in on my way back from uni. I was not disappointed. Here’s a little overview of the stuff I picked up. There will definitely be more posts like this when I pick up the rest of the line!…

“Of course, teenage girls need role models – but not like beauty vlogger Zoella.” Chloe Hamilton, The Independent, October 21st 2014 The media student in me came out in full force when I read this article.

Strangely enough, my skin felt…

I love a night in. In fact, I go out of my way to make all nights “a proper night in”. This means a hot bath, at least two blankets, usually a good amount of chocolate, and an early bedtime. Basically I’m an old lady. Who eats a lot of chocolate. Tonight’s bath consisted of a cocktail of LUSH bath bombs and shower gels. The benefits of working at LUSH include a fabulous staff discount – although I’m still well within my budget of £10. Lord Of Misrule is pretty impressive. Lord Of Misrule is the name of the bath…
