New In: Pretty In Pink

As I mentioned in my sulphate-free shampoo post last week I’m trying to make the effort to buy more cruelty-free beauty products when I can. So I thought today I’d share with you a few products I’ve picked up recently. This all started with an NYX counter finally arriving in Newcastle and the whole thing just escalated. The one NYX product I’d been dying to try was the matte lip creams, as I’d heard so many amazing things about them.

The Art Of Being Normal

I’m always trying to get into the habit of reading more often and spending less time on my phone, but I must admit after a long day at work, coming home and cooking tea then going to the gym I tend to be too tired to keep my eyes open. However over the past month or so I’ve been working a little further away from home, which is giving me about 3 hours of commuting time to finally catch up on some reading. I’d initially started this in March and intended to get it finished as part of The Girl Gang…
