How to Get Chopstick Curls

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen it comes to my hair, I pretty much have 2 styles: straight, or mostly straight with some loose waves towards the bottom. Adventurous. So when I saw that my Sapphire curling wand from Irresistable Me* had a really thin attachment for chopstick curls, I was intrigued. I’ve seen these tiny curls on plenty of bloggers and celebs, and liked the idea of sashaying round with an 80s style faux perm. I didn’t really know how to actually do chopstick curls, so I just followed the below steps and – by gum – I think it worked (kind of).

Kingfisher Autumn/Winter Beauty Haul

Autumn/Winter Beauty Haul 2016As you may know, I split my shopping time equally between Coventry and Birmingham – Coventry because I live here, and Birmingham because I sometimes get the urge to visit a River Island that is bigger than the average sized kitchen (seriously Cov, sort it out).

Yes, important stuff.

Better Together | Current Favourite Product Combos


I feel like us beauty fans are always on the quest for the one perfect product. The one foundation that will have amazing coverage but still leave a luminous finish; the one mascara that will add length, volume and flutterability; the one-sweep wonder lipstick that’ll be highly pigmented but still light on the lips and maybe even bring peace to the middle east. But recently I’ve gone for a slightly different tactic – why not combine two good products for one perfect finish? View Full Post

Johnny Loves Rosie | Blogger Breakfast

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love blogging. I love breakfast. So when Johnny Loves Rosie invited me to a bloggers’ breakfast at the lovely Cote Brasserie in The Mailbox I RSVPd faster than you can say “shovel all of the carbs into my mouth, please and thank you”. I already knew a little bit about jewellery brand Johnny Loves Rosie after seeing them on ASOS, but I was looking forward to finding out more – while hanging out with some of my favourite Birmingham blogger baes, of course.
