So my birthday passed over a month ago but as we all know, this post always goes up late due to later gifts. I'm always grateful for any gifts at all and I'm always so astounded by how much thought went into them! I also did my own treat-myself spree on the weekend of my… Continue reading A 21st Birthday [Mostly Beauty] Haul
Hi Everyone! Another year has passed and we are at 20S' FOURTH year! That's insane. I know, I say this every year, but that's really just amazing. Life for me is getting much, much busier now but I am hoping to keep up the blogging at least - I've realised this blog is how some… Continue reading Four Years of Twenty Swans!!!!
Hi everyone! Just like that, the summer is gone. My new timetable is here, the new academic year is well on its way and for the third year in a row, I have not blogged almost all summer. I spent most of it at work and playing games... I didn't actually wear that much makeup… Continue reading [Makeup and Chatter] Back at University
Hi everyone! It's taken me this long to finally try out the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. Not surprising, to be honest! It was one of those things I meant to buy and try as soon as NYX landed in the UK a while back but for some reason, I never got around to it.… Continue reading Snap Reviews: Lip Creams from NYX and Collection
Hi everyone! I am slightly behind on my reading schedule of a book per month. A lot of the books I have are actually quite bulky or read slowly and with university studies and work, and the hectic week before Easter, March was almost completely devoid of reading. I'd been making my way through the… Continue reading Books of 2018, #3: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Hi everyone! I hope you've all had a nice Easter. Spring has properly landed (or at least, this is as much as we are gonna get in the UK) and we are a quarter of the way into the year already, so it's time for me to sum up my media consumption of the last… Continue reading Quarterly Media Editorial: Winter 2018
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.
Hi everyone! I wasn't sure whether to do this or not, but I'm worried that my content is suffering these days and I'm not putting out the quality I want. So I want to be sure I'm taking time to work on them properly and making sure I am including all the information I want… Continue reading #Playlist: Ghosts
Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, I attempted some photos in the sporadic Golden Hour lighting to showcase the items but the weather was not playing nice! One moment it was sunny and I managed one photo before it vanished again and I would tweet a complaint and it would be sunny and so on...… Continue reading [Chatter] Another lipstick I’ve fallen back in love with – Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Matte 111 Kiss of Life
When I first sat down to write this I was thinking that this would end up being a very long post. This was because it seemed like my TBR pile had finally reached the heights of my G-Dragon poster. Then I realised that I could split the pile somewhat. I tend to leave my current… Continue reading My Current TBR Pile, as of March 2018
