Review: Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser and Cloud Paint in Dusk

Ah, Glossier. With the effortless-cool-girl target audience (which is everyone. I mean, I'm not cool but I sure as hell want to be as cool as all of you), dare I day 'millennial' relatability and minimal aesthetic, they've become another new hip brand on everyone's radar. I shied away from buying any of their products,… Continue reading Review: Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser and Cloud Paint in Dusk

[Makeup and Chatter] Lunch at The Botanist

I don't know about you, but I'm really enjoying this unintentional 'Makeup and Chatter' series. I get to talk about a good day with nice memories at a place I haven't been to before, as well as share a makeup look. Oftentimes posts with only the former don't do so well but I really do enjoy… Continue reading [Makeup and Chatter] Lunch at The Botanist

Books of 2018, #1: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (The Illustrated Edition)

Neverwhere was probably my first Neil Gaiman book. Either that or The Graveyard Book. I read it years ago and I can't remember what I thought of Neverwhere only that there was a London Below and a Door and an Angel and that the book was Good and somewhere on my positive scales and that… Continue reading Books of 2018, #1: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (The Illustrated Edition)

My Photography Process

As another one of the Twenty Swans' 3 year specials, I am including my current process for taking photos as my draft got long enough that I thought I should separate it from the main process post. Again, this is with a focus on beauty blogging. I'm not gonna lie - my camera does so… Continue reading My Photography Process

[Makeup and Chatter] Paramore in Birmingham

Despite the makeup I have, I don't do a base and eyes all that often. A full face is reserved only for special days, like a concert. I took out a lot of items I hadn't been using for a while and got to play around with my look a bit. Today's chatter / extra… Continue reading [Makeup and Chatter] Paramore in Birmingham

My Blogging Process

Hi everyone! For Twenty Swans' third anniversary I thought I would put up an extra post or two to celebrate it, about how I go about putting together something for the blog. This will mostly focus on my beauty posts since that is the only type of post with a tangible routine to it, and… Continue reading My Blogging Process

Three Years of Twenty Swans!

I could say something like 'oh, I'm so surprised Twenty Swans lasted so long' but I'm not. Amazingly it has been something I regularly go back to without complaining or finding it boring for too long. I still love it for making me feel like people want to hear what I want to say, and… Continue reading Three Years of Twenty Swans!

Cafe Visits: Javalounge

Aside from all those good resolutions for the sake of being a better person (more on that later this month), one of them is to visit more cafes. Especially local ones that can't really be found anywhere else. It seems a bit pricier than my usual Tesco's £3 meal deal (that I'll never give up,… Continue reading Cafe Visits: Javalounge

Year-End Media Editorial 2017

I actually really enjoy doing this type of post and the only thing that ever puts me off writing these is knowing I have to add a billion hyperlinks at the end. Anyhow, that means I have a lot to chat about since like, March (!!), so let's get started! This is what I've been… Continue reading Year-End Media Editorial 2017
