Skincare Routine

So I know we've only just met, you and I, however I feel like there's a lot you can learn about a person from their skincare routine. As I'm prone to eczema, especially right under my nose, I have to spend a lot of time cleansing and moisturising my skin, just to keep it in line. Summer is probably my least favourite time of year too as I am actually allergic to my own sweat, which is probably why that area under my nose gets so red and flakey during the hotter months.

I have incredibly dry skin in some areas and combination skin in others, along with a side of dehydration thrown in there just to keep things interesting. Another problem that I have is that I'm allergic to water. Well actually, it isn't so much the water as it is all of the chemicals thrown in there to make it actually clean and, you know, usable. Yeah, my skin hates me. Luckily, I have a filter on my taps and this helps to save me a lot of trouble. But I can honestly say that the thing that has made the biggest difference to my skin has been developing a good skincare routine and sticking to it. So if you're at all interested in what I do on a daily basis to keep my skin in relatively good condition (lets be honest, we all have bad skin day, no matter what) then read on!

Love At First Swatch

I woke up today thinking it was going to be a day just like any other. Oh, how wrong i was! Today, my friends, is the day I fell in love. Thats right, I said it, the L-word. L-O-V-E.

Now I'm not the kind of girl that just throws the L-word around casually and just, you know, for funzies. When i use the L-word, I mean business. So when I woke up this morning to find the love of my life just waiting for me on the kitchen bench, well, I was pretty darn excited, to say the least. So without further ado, I introduce the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette.
