My simple and easy night time skincare routine

As you may or may not have gathered from me is that complicated, long winded skincare routines are not for me. I just don’t got the time to be doing 5 skincare steps every.single.night! I know some people love it but not me. I try it, then I abandon it by day 3! It just isn’t my thing. I stumbled on this routine, a few weeks ago and I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin. I typically exfoliate every morning, so I don’t do it at night. My dead skin builds up on…

The Winter Coat and Snakeskin | My Autumn essentials

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons of the year. Autumn and Spring (Spring simply because it is my birthday month!). Autumn is a time where you start packing away those summer clothes. You know that summer dress that shows off every likkle piece of skin or that shirt that is so thin but gorgeous. You can only wear it when the weather is guaranteed to be over 30 degrees! Your skin is glowing or super oily, depending on your skin type! Vitamin D everywhere! Everything looks better when the sun is shining doesn’t it?…

The best Makeup and Beauty Buys under £25!

I don’t know about you guys, but this time of the year when I start reviewing how the year has gone, I take a look at my finances and think how could I have done things better. When I am reviewing my finances, my progress, my life, I tend to try and cut back on things I want and focus on things that I actually need. Makeup for me is a luxury and can be an expensive ‘want’ sometimes and I know that there are times you just want affordable makeup! What I love about…

October Favourites | Beauty and Makeup Products I have been loving

Can you imagine that we are in November already?! This year has gone so fast. Before we know it, it will be Christmas already! I am going to be honest with you guys, taking care of my skin has not been a priority at the moment. I don’t know about you but when I get overwhelmed or super stressed, my skin suffers. Either because I am comfort eating so I break out, or my skincare routine goes out of the window. However, in the last couple of weeks, I have re-established my skincare routine and…

Beauty Cocoon Box | Beauty Subscription Box for Women of Colour

This is a review about Beauty Cocoon Beauty subscription boxes. To be honest I have felt some sort of way about beauty subscription boxes. I usually find them full of beauty products that I cannot use. I mean when you receive beige concealer, you just think (as a dark skin girl) ermmmmmmmm so what am I going to do with this product!!! This is why I stopped subscribing to these beauty boxes, I just concluded that they are not made for women like me. It is a shame really, because chocolate ladies like to spend…

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette on dark skin | Part 1

Today we are looking at the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette and what it is like on dark skin. I remember when this palette came out it literally broke the Internet, it was constantly sold out and was incredibly hard to get your hands on. I just waited. I’ve learnt not to fall for the over-hyped products, because there will be another product that comes out and the hype shifts then voila the product is constantly in stock. Hence why this review is coming a little late in the game, but y’all know I had…

The Ordinary Products on Dark Skin | First Impressions and Initial Review

I have heard about these Ordinary products since the beginning of the year but I didn’t really look into it. Just because I thought it was all about the hype. However, recently, I decided to invest more into my skincare regime and find products that work for my skin and these Ordinary products popped up again. They are very affordable and have received good reviews so I figured that I might as well give them a shot.  The great thing about The Ordinary products is that they use the proven ingredients which are effective in…
