Instagram has really lost its shine in the past year. The algorithm changes mean that the bigger your account the fewer people see it, certain bloggers are buying followers, the spammy comments with no relevance to the content … I’ve just fallen out of love with it a little bit. I became too obsessed with the number of likes each photo would get, how many comments, the feedback, and it just completely took the fun out of it. So I decided to set myself a challenge to keep me interested and the rainbow make up challenge was born!

We all know that I flipping love essie nail varnishes and have done for a really long time. So you can probably imagine just how excited I was to get my paws on the beautiful essie Summer 2017 collection*. PLUS those who get to the bottom of the blog post can enter a competition to win the entire collection. Good luck!

For the past 3 weeks I’ve been in the south of France and I was really restrained when it came to choosing the make up I would take. I brought so many books (plus all of the stuff I needed for blogging) that my suitcase space was seriously limited. So here are my summer make up staples – the products I’ve worn pretty much every day and have loved.

We’re halfway through the year and I’m not entirely sure how that’s happened. But a new month means a new Skincare Shake Up – here is my full skincare routine for June, including some new goodies that I think you need to know about along with some favourites you may have heard of already.
