    Sleek Makeup: Matte Me Lipcreams

    Matte Me: Bittersweet [nude pink] & Old Hollywood [deep red] Sorry for being gone a while but I finally have a custom domain! It took a while to set up and I had to move to WordPress as it was easier to use a custom domain on here. At least I found it easier to do. Anyway, I’m back and here’s a new review… When I came across these lip creams in Superdrug, I was intrigued to try them. Lip creams are not unheard of but not something I’d tried myself.

    Kindness Costs Nothing

    Why am I writing this post? This is the first post I’ve written that mentions my work. I never thought I’d write something like this, I didn’t think there’d ever be a reason to. But today, the line was crossed for me. Working in retail is difficult at times and especially when it’s busy. Every staff member does their absolute best to make sure the business continues to run smoothly even during these periods. However, there are times when we can’t sit back and simply “take it” anymore. Most of our customers are fantastic, I will be honest and tell you that. Sadly, there are a few who tarnish that…

    ‘I love Summer’ Tag

    I’m quite certain this is the first ‘tag’ post I’ve ever participated in. Since it’s summer, it’s time to try new things so I’m going to go for it. My friend, Chloe Stedman a.k.a http://chloestedman.blogspot.co.uk suggested I do the ‘I love Summer’ tag and she’s also done it. Well, let’s get started!   1) What is your dream vacation? This is a tough one since I’m an aspiring World Traveler. But I love adventure, so a road trip around America/Canada would be pretty incredible. Also, I’ve always wanted to visit Italy so they’re the joint #1 dream vacay’s for me! 2) Favourite summer drink Anything cold. I’m currently hooked on fresh orange…
