Okay, so a whole host of things happened in the last year that mean I am lucky to even have cool photos to share right now to reflect on.

[Thoughts] 17 days before I go to S. Korea
Packing At the time of writing, I have begun to pack. It's not a tedious thing at all, and I still have plenty of time with not much to fill it with, so I thought, why not? Actually, in all honesty, I've been sitting around, restless with the thought of packing. I refuse to be… Continue reading [Thoughts] 17 days before I go to S. Korea

A New Year, a New Challenge: BOOK BUYING BAN!

Somehow, I managed to go an entire year spending less than £100 on makeup for myself as a result of the lipstick ban due to a knock-on effect on the rest of my makeup. I did notice, however, that I acquired a Very Tall reading pile that I haven't touched… Continue reading A New Year, a New Challenge: BOOK BUYING BAN!

I had tried the regular Butter Gloss in Praline, and… Continue reading Review: NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Chocolate Crepe
Quarterly Media Editorial: Winter 2018
Hi everyone! I hope you've all had a nice Easter.

[Chatter] At Last, Let’s Talk About Depression.
I think over the last year or two I may have attempted to draft out this post four or five times. As I wrote this very first paragraph for this working draft, it was January of 2018. I knew I wanted to put this up eventually, and I felt like it was approaching the right… Continue reading [Chatter] At Last, Let’s Talk About Depression.
