HAIR TRANSFORMATION @ PINK SAYS


If you’re triggered by overgrown roots, look away now! I hadn’t been to the hairdressers for about six months before I booked in at my favourite hair salon in the UNIVERSE; so there was a whoooole lot of work to be done. I’ve been visiting Pink Says in Teignmouth for about four years now, even making the six-hour journey from London to Teignmouth after I moved away. Now I’m back, I’m so glad they’re on my doorstep again because there isn’t a set of ladies I trust so much with my hair. So, after about six months of re-growth and a strange silvery blonde tone to my hair, I booked in for a 9am appointment with Sam.

WHAT I THOUGHT OF MY FIRST BIRCHBOX IN TWO YEARS


I’ve dabbled in the world of beauty subscription boxes since they were first thrust onto our newsfeeds years and years and years ago. I’ve tried GlossyBox, LookFantastic’s Beauty Box and Birchbox, but never been a real ‘subscriber’ to any of them. I kind of got into the routine of allowing a few month’s worth of boxes drop through my letter box before getting completely offended by one of them, and cancelling my subscription to go looking elsewhere. The last time I ordered a Birchbox was in May of 2017, but when I spotted a discount code for a £5 box + P&P, I decided to give it another whirl. Here’s how I got on…

COFFEE @ PINK MOON


Sometimes, when the mood takes me, I take a break from RuPaul’s Drag Race Quizzes and watching Judge Rinder and I leave the house. Yesterday morning it was for good reason, too, because I went to a job interview in my new city! I feel really positive that I’m getting the ball rolling. *Pause for applause*

I’m perpetually anxiously early, so I decided to arrive in the city three hours before my interview was scheduled to start. After spending my teenagedom hanging around kiddie parks, I’d consider myself a pro-loiterer…except it had just started to rain. But all was not lost, because I’d spotted this little gem of a cafe on my last trip down to Devon and it was top of my list to visit.

WHAT MY MUM GOT ME FOR MY 24TH BIRTHDAY


My favourite time of the year (and quite possibly my mum’s too) is my birthday. I get showered in gifts, so, what’s not to love? Plus, it allows my mum to swan around the expensive makeup shops and provides her with an opportunity to absolve herself from some of the guilt she harbours from living in Australia away from me. *sob* *weep*

Year after year, she goes completely over the top ~not that I’m complaining~ and I always really look forward to seeing what I have to open! 

This blog post really is not meant to be braggy or spoilt; I only see my mum once every two years, so these are kind of ‘saved up’ gifts. I’m always just so grateful, and since they’re beauty bits and pieces, they fit quite well into my blog. And they make for some really pretty pictures.
