What my hair means to me | Loose waves with ghd creative curl

It dawned on me the other day just how many hours of my life I’ve probably spent doing my hair.  Rather a lot, I realised!  I wouldn’t even consider myself a high maintenance kind of person, but still.  Add up all the time blow drying, brushing, curling, fixing into a haphazard messy bun on top of my head… and it’s a sizeable chunk of time.  Especially when your locks are as long as your arm like mine.  I’ve read countless…

The New Things I’ve Been Giving A Whirl Lately

Yep this is very much an odd time to write this kind of post.  But y’know, I’m not exactly doing well with the blogger rules at the minute so to hell with it!  Yes January is The Time For New Things but I realised I’ve actually been a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.  Me!  Early!  For once in my life!  Doesn’t happen often so let’s appreciate that little fact yeah? Non-fiction books No I’m not taking encyclopaedias to bed…

6 on my lips | my all-time favourite lipsticks

Hello, my name’s Lily and I’m not a beauty blogger.  Howeverrrrr, I do like my lipstick and feel ever so slightly naked if I leave the house without it.  Other than if I’m going to the gym, nipping to Spar for bread (when someone I know ALWAYS seems to drive past), or just running way too late.  But yeah, I’ve amassed a collection that some might consider pretty modest (beauty bloggers I’m looking at you) but isn’t exactly minimal, shall…

UDxGWEN | youtube

Hello again, YouTube.  My first makeup (kinda) video today!  Urban Decay very, very kindly treated me to their soon-to-be-released Gwen Stefani palette along with some other goodies, and well, any excuse to play with my new camera really.  I’m still figuring out my style video wise, so let me know what you think of this one! Just look at it.  So pretty!  I’ve used my old faithful Naked 2 palette for a while now (can’t really go wrong with Naked can you?) but I…

fit skin

Let’s be honest here, I’m no beauty blogger or expert!  I’ll leave that task to those who can be bothered plucking their eyebrows more than once a fortnight and have a 10 stage makeup removal routine.  Neither did I expect to be slathering myself in oats nor sharing my skincare secrets, but there you go. 😛  As part of the #AveenoSkincareSecrets blogger tag challenge I’ve been doing exactly that – applying Aveeno‘s Daily Moisturising Lotion (the oaty bit) and paying a…

now for something completely different!

Photo heavy post warning!  During the Easter holidays my mum had a shoot booked that was a wee bit different to anything we’d done before.  Sobia wanted to shoot all her wedding outfits before the event itself.  Nothing too out of the ordinary so far!  We turned up bright and early and within 10 minutes I’d agreed to be dressed up and made up in full Asian wedding attire for another shoot.  As you do!  We had so much fun…

prom prep

Feels like all I talk about on here at the minute is things I’m gonna do and things I’m looking forward to! I guess thats how its gotta be during exam time. 19 down, only 4 horrible ones left to go now.    Anyway, prom! That’s something to get excited about! Yay!  I’m by no means a total promzilla and have barely just got everything sorted.  Organised lily has been a bit of a slacker.  In a way it seems…
