Unfamilied.

I’m very close to my parents. I used to be very close to both of my brothers. But lately…well, for a few years now, the bond and closeness that once was there, just isn’t anymore. My 2 brothers are still as close as ever, but I very much don’t fit into their closeness. And honestly…I do feel very excluded. And yes, it really did used to bother me. Now, it just makes me laugh. They’re getting tattoos for one another, they talk all the time, spend time together. Know things about each other. I highly doubt either of them could … Continue reading Unfamilied.

Overwatch Uprising! No. Sorry, Retribution. Overwatch Retribution.

Last years Uprising, is this years Retribution. Last year we joined baby Tracer, young Cadette Oxton on her first Overwatch mission, taking to the streets of Kings Row with Combat Medic Ziegler, Chief Engineer Lindholm and Lietenant Wilhelm. You captured, defended and pushed objectives. Did we push…? I think we pushed…no, we may have just capped and defended. Regardless! We did stuff. Why did we do the stuff…? For the loot! It’s always for the loot. This year, we’re joining my main, Moira, Jesse McCree (oh la la), Genji (Gengooey) and Reyes (Reaper) on a top secret Blackwatch (the OW … Continue reading Overwatch Uprising! No. Sorry, Retribution.

Bathe Like…A Unicorn…?

The unicorn trend is still going strong, and honestly? I am loving it. I don’t care “how 2017” it might be. I don’t know about you, but I could always do with something magical, sparkly and rainbow-esq in my life. Enter the Imperial Leather Unicorn Marshmallow Foamburst. Quite a mouthful. I got mine from Sainsbury’s(well, my boyfriend got them for me), and they were £2 each. However, at Asda, you can nab this limited edition foamburst for £1.50 each. Boots and Superdrug also have this available, and are charging £2 also. So, if you have an Asda local to you, either pop … Continue reading Bathe Like…A Unicorn…?

On the Lash(es)!

Another new thing that I’ve only just recently tried! False lashes. And oh my goodness…how did I ever exist without them!? I’ve always thought of lashes as really extra, over the top and just kind of silly…and then I tried them. And I take back every single word. I genuinely am in love with false lashes! I’ve been using lashes that I got for £3.00 at Primark – yes, we all know by now, I like a cheeky beauty bargain! The lashes that I am wearing in the photos are by Girls With Attitude (on the actual GWA site, the lashes are … Continue reading On the Lash(es)!

The Dark Circle

Dark circles, also known as the bane of my life. I’m actually…kind of embarrassed and even ashamed to share these pictures – ignore my crazy eyebrows! – but this is my blog, so I am posting this. I have very, as you can see, problematic dark circles. It takes me about 45 minutes alone, just to cover my circles. That’s partly to do with being still quite new to colour correcting, using foundation and also using concealer. Yes, I have spent the majority of my life just accepting them. Being desperately unhappy, but accepting them. Until I watched some Instagram … Continue reading The Dark Circle

I’m not one of those…

I read an interesting (read: insulting, biased, dickish, douchey – because I’m none of the ideal things) article a few days ago. Basically, explaining what women should do/wear/behave to make themselves appear more attractive. So! We seemingly shouldn’t have chips or smudges in our nail polish manicure…ever. Which is hilarious to me, as my nails are always chipped – I use my hands, funnily enough. And when my nails are painted, they’re ridiculous colours. Sexy, matching underwear is apparently a mandatory rule. Another hilarious one. Yea…I’ll stick to my neon sports bras, tshirt bras and ‘nerdy’ boxer shorts, thanks. Knowing … Continue reading I’m not one of those…
