Let’s Protect Our Skin – Caudalie Polyphenol C15

I’m constantly talking about how tired I am. The affect this tiredness has on my all-over wellbeing: my skin, my eyes, my fitness. My sleep deprivation touches every part of my life and I wholeheartedly believe that if I got more sleep my life would be completely different. You hear that, kids?! GO TO SLEEP! […]…


My Winter Beauty Favourites

It’s winter beauty time! I’m probably not going to endear myself to anyone by telling you this, but ever since I have switched to Paleo my skin has been insane. Insane in a good way. I had one zit the whole of last month and it was one of those hormonal ones that arrives in […]…

Artful Hair Tutorials

One thing I’m totally focussed on, despite all the cleaning, lego-ing and bum wiping I do, is the persuit of good hair. Seriously; the week I learnt how to fishtail and french plait was a really good one. Along with red lipstick something that makes me feel like ‘me’ is good hair. On my list to learn […]…
