B. Prepared Makeup Primer

B. Prepared Makeup Primer

Make up primers are the more recent addition to my collection and are still something I am testing out to see if they actually make any difference to my skin. Primers are used mainly as a base before applying your foundation or concealer, they usually smooth out your skin allowing the make up on top to appear flawless. They also claim to help your make up stay on for longer. I recently purchased the primer from B. and these are my thoughts on it.

Classic Hummus Recipe

Classic Hummus Recipe

Hummus is one of my favourite foods, it is my favourite sandwich filling and my favourite savoury dip. Basically I love hummus and am regularly eating it, even more so since I became vegan. It is such a simple thing to make at home and easily adaptable to your individual taste. So here is my classic hummus recipe.

February Playlist

February Playlist
Here // Alessia Cara
Basically the perfect song for introverts and anti-party people, probably why I like it so much. I have never heard any of her other music but I think this is the song that got her noticed. It samples the same beat as Portishead Glory Box which is one of my favourite songs and basically is all about her hating parties. I actually really like listening to the lyrics, it is all about being some place because your friends are, but you really hate being there and would prefer to be sat in the corner being anti social. I think it speaks to a lot of people but I genuinely think it is a great song. 
Secret Love Song // Little Mix
Just reading the title of this song in person it wouldn't be something I was keen to listen too. But I was in the car one day listening to the radio and this came on, I knew I recognised the voices but couldn't work out straight away who it was. I think it is great that we have a British UK girl band but usually there music is not something I immediately listen to. However I find this song really catchy and find myself singing it out loud an awful lot.

My Top 8 Leonardo DiCaprio Films

My Top 8 Leonardo DiCaprio Films
I've always had a little soft spot for Leonardo DiCaprio, but it was only when I got older that I appreciated not only his good looks but his great acting. As the Oscars are happening this weekend and Leonardo being up for the Best Male award (hopefully he will finally win an Oscar) I thought I would do a little fun post about my favourite films of his.

Dr Organic Aloe Vera Concentrated Cream

Dr Organic Aloe Vera Concentrated Cream

One of my newest favourite ingredients in skincare is Aloe Vera, I have fallen in love with the scent and find it really refreshing. Like many people in the colder months I use a lot of moisturiser and I sometimes find it really difficult to find one that can keep my skin hydrated throughout the day and especially under make up. I picked up this Aloe Vera Concentrated Cream from the Dr Organic Range recently and here are my thoughts on it.

What I Eat In A Day #1 (Vegan)

What I Eat In A Day Vegan

I love all sorts of food posts, but one that I really enjoy reading are the What I Eat In A Day posts. I guess I am secretly nosy and find it interesting to see what other people eat. I don't have a YouTube channel so I can't make a fancy video showing you, but I can type it up for you to read. So if you are interested in what I eat on a vegan/plant based diet then here we go.

Crazy Rumors Raspberry Sherbet Lip Balm

Crazy Rumors Raspberry Sherbet Lip Balm

Wherever I go I will take a lip balm with me, especially in the colder months because my lips just cannot hack it. I'm definitely a lip balm girl over a pretty lipstick, usually because they are a lot easier to apply but also due to there helpful qualities. Personally I was getting a little tired of using lip balms that required me to apply them from the pot, and trust me I only felt like that when I was outside with gloves on and had to keep taking them off whenever I needed to reapply. So I began the hunt to look for an easy lip balm to use that required no fingers but also moisturised. Here are my thoughts on the Crazy Rumors Raspberry Sherbet Lip Balm.
