Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have seen this palette popping up all over social media. Usually I don’t go in for the hyped products, but the Urban Decay Alice In Wonderland palette has been calling to me. And when I got a Debenham’s voucher at an event recently this was the first thing that popped into my mind.

This is going to be photo heavy post because I needed to capture just how incredible this palette is!

Last month was Rosacea Awareness Month and the folks at Buzzfeed asked me to write an article about living with rosacea which you can read HERE. It went viral and has currently had over 422,000 views and so many people got in touch with me to share their stories of rosacea and many of them had questions. A recurring question was asking for recommendations for sunscreens for rosacea sensitive skin. I try to wear factor 50 any time that I’m in the sun but it is hard to find sunscreens that don’t smother or aggravate rosacea or reactive skin. So here are my top 7 favourite sunscreens for rosacea sensitive skin!

I’ve really missed doing monthly favourites, but I’m glad I waited until I had a post where the products really got me excited. This one has a good mix of make up and lifestyle, I really hope you enjoy my April 16 monthly favourites!

I somehow managed to miss March’s Skincare Shake Up completely. I’m very sorry (no one noticed) so I’ve decide to combine March and April’s products into one massive Skincare Shake Up bumper edition! So if you’re a fan of skincare, or looking for some new recommendations, look no further…

It’s a long one so get comfy!

I’ve recorded my first ever vlog! It was my birthday in April and we decided to do a trip combining seeing family and a long weekend in Paris. My parents live near Toulouse so we went there for a week of relaxing, wine and dog-hugging. Then we took the SNCF up to Paris to meet friends for a long weekend of sightseeing, cocktails and delicious food. I hope you enjoy my Toulouse Paris Vlog!

Earlier today I read a wonderful article on twitter. You should read it, but for the lazy/time limited ones among you, the basic premise is that if your response to something isn’t to say ‘hell yes’ then it should be a ‘no’. This may seem reactive and excessive, and at first it petrified me as I am very much the type of person who has always dwelled in the grey area. In the past I thrived on the intricacies, the confusion, the up-in-the-air aspect of the grey area.

The past few months have been a bit strange. I’ve been quite unadventurous with my make up and I failed spectacularly at reading anything that wasn’t Twitter or beauty blogs. I didn’t even do a monthly favourites post for March as I just felt so uninspired. So instead I decided to just pick the 3 stand out items that got me excited, rather than fleshing out a post with items I just thought were okay. Read on for the 3 things you need to know about…
