Review: Daysoft Silk Contact Lenses

13814611_10209895951585902_1964284019_n

I’ve been wearing glasses for a very long time now, and although at first I hated it (I used to hide behind a tree before going into school as a kid, just to take my glasses off and hide them, and persisted despite not being able to see a thing), however I grew to love it over the years. I love picking out stylish frames and making them part of my outfit. However, there are often occasions when glasses aren’t ideal, whether it’s going to the gym or a fitness class, going to a gig, or a big event where you want to show your eye make up off. As a result of that, I’ve been wearing lenses on and off for about 9 years now, and I’ve done them all. Monthly, coloured, two weeklies, dailies, and I’ve come to learn the pros and cons of each. At this point, however, I prefer sticking to dailies, as I don’t wear lenses on a daily basis, so it’s handy to have ones I can dispose of at the end of the day. Continue reading

What is Veganism?

13695837_10209840945530785_1988306939_n

Whilst writing this blog, I am embarking on a journey, making the change from being vegetarian to becoming vegan. However, I know that many people don’t really know what veganism is, what impact it can have, and why so many people are raving about this lifestyle. As it’s something I feel very passionately about, I thought I’d provide you with some information on the topic, whilst taking you through a series of weekly posts. This week I will start by talking about the basics, what it is, why people choose it, as well as providing you with some further reading you can do if you’re interested. In the next few weeks I will cover different topics, including tips on how to go vegan, plant-based food, the beauty, household and fashion aspects of the lifestyle, as well as travelling as a vegan. If there’s anything in particular you would like me to cover, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or send me an email! Continue reading

Recipe: Vegan Stir Fry

13706329_10209821483724252_981832669_n

Nothing beats a big, steamin’ bowl of stir fry, it’s definitely my ultimate comfort food. The best thing about it is that you can throw in pretty much anything you’ve got lying around, and having a variety of sauces in the cupboard makes it easy to pick whatever flavour you’re craving. My favourites include hoisin, sweet chili and garlic, szechwan and chow mein, so I always make sure to pick up a couple of sachets when I’m doing a shop.  Continue reading

Hello lovelies! Today I will be reviewing a foundation I have used for quite a while now – the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation, in the shade Ivory. So let’s start off with my skin. I have quite a pale complexion with pink undertones, and often find myself struggling to find a shade light enough for my skin. I also have combination skin, swaying towards oily, with a tendency to break out. So, when it comes to picking a foundation, I have a set criteria which I need it to do: Continue reading
