It's back! Charlotte Tilbury's Instant Look in a Palette


Rarely will a limited edition Charlotte Tilbury launch slip through my fingers but this was one that I just couldn't grasp before it was long gone. The Instant Look in a Palette launched early this year but sold out before I was able to get my paws on one (it's currently out of stock, but you can browse through the full range of available products from Charlotte Tilbury here in the meantime). Months on and due to its speedy sell-out, it's safe to say it was a good day when an email landed in my inbox notifying me its back in stock and this time it's here to stay complete with a travel-friendly Legendary Lashes mascara in tow...

Illamasqua gets PETA Certified & My #BeautyNotBrutality Look



With so much negative news to come from cosmetic industry in regards to animal testing, it's always refreshing to hear something that's good and one British beauty brand in particular has recently had every reason to celebrate an achievement of their own complete with flutes of vegan champagne. Illamasqua are famous for their incredible pigmentation, in-your-face shades and is a brand that's just something a little different to what your regular cosmetic line has to offer, but in recent weeks their PETA accreditation has understandably been the main talking point within the cruelty-free beauty world and I can't think of many others who deserve such recognition...

Homemade 'Cheese' & Onion Popcorn & PROPERCORN's #InstituteOfFlavour


Popcorn has to be one of my all-time fave go-to snacks - it's easy, quick and can have so many health benefits (depending what you throw onto it) as a great source of antioxidants, fibre and vitamin B. I love that it can be flavoured in so many ways, but my most regularly made recipe is 'cheese' - of course all recipes around these parts are vegan, but what I can let you in on is that it's the best 'cheesy' popcorn my taste buds have ever come across and it only takes a few ingredients to get it together...
