BTS at The Cosmo Influencer Awards: The Glitz, The Glamour and Forgetting My Knickers

A few weeks ago an email landed in my inbox that made me slam my laptop lid shut and proceed to have heart palpitations for the next twenty minutes.

I Never Had a ‘Girl Gang’, and it Made Me Feel Like a Failure

I Never Had a ‘Girl Gang’, and it Made Me Feel Like a Failure

I largely floated between various friendship groups, feeling as though I had to choose one to gravitate toward, but never truly feeling as though I fitted in. That sense that I didn’t really belong made me feel very uneasy and I started to wonder if I was missing out on a Sex in the City style squad. I began to crave it, and worse still, I began to wonder if people didn’t want to be friends with me.

My Microblading Experience: What is it and does it hurt?

My Microblading Experience: What is it and does it hurt?

The quest for the perfect brow is very, very real. I blame Cara Delevigne. Eyebrows have the power to totally alter a face whilst simultaneously being a royal pain in the arse; something I mutter to myself as I try desperately to get them looking more like twins and less like distant cousins each morning, a £30 pot of pomade in hand.

The Problem with the ‘Treat Yourself’ Mentality

The Problem with the ‘Treat Yourself’ Mentality

The ‘treat yourself’ mentality and the sense of entitlement that accompanies it is damaging us as a generation of spenders, rather than savers, and when that rainy day comes, none of us have any idea whether it’ll be a drizzle or a storm.

Glossier Review: the Highs and the Lows of the Cult Beauty Brand

Glossier Review: the Highs and the Lows of the Cult Beauty Brand

When Glossier announced that they were to be launching in the UK in October of last year, people went a bit nuts. Known for their oh-so-instagrammable marshmallow pink packaging, their gentle skin-care and their ‘hi i just woke up look how cute i am’ models, the brand has built up a cult-like following of worshipers.

The 5 Ride-or-Die Beauty Products That I Buy Again and Again

The 5 Ride-or-Die Beauty Products That I Buy Again and Again

I’m not a total beauty junkie, I just really like products. I like swatching them and sniffing them and slathering them all over myself in the hope that I’ll wake up looking like Megan Fox. I’ve always loved playing with lotions and potions and often used to break into my mum’s cosmetics stash and leave her room looking like an oompa-loompa after a heavy night out.
