Hi! This blog is not abandoned. I am suffering from medical problems involving eyes making it hard to look at screens. I no longer have any social media so my links will no longer work. Blog posts will be slow from here on but I hope one day I can return to how I once was - thank you.

If you'd asked me a year ago about my experience with false nails, I'd have had no clue. I'd been a regular user of all the other beauty add-ons, I first wore hair extensions and false lashes at age 15 and became a regular user at 16, but false nails? I'd never tried those before.

After getting into the K-beauty scene over a year ago, this finally changed as I purchased my first set of false nails from Jolse.

Everyone loves a good sale. I'm sure even the world's greatest billionaire's get excited waking up to an email that their favourite brands are on sale. Or at least I would, I'd still be the stingy penny-counter I always am regardless of how unlimited my money was.

When I saw that Lily Lolo lipsticks were on sale at Ecco Verde, one of my favourite places to shop for natural cosmetics, I just had to add one to my basket! But how do I pick just one? It was tough decision but I made it through - here's what I chose!

My Experience With sthsweet - Korean Fashion Clothing Haul

My first order with sthsweet - K-fashion haul

It's taken me a while to publish this but here we go. So, I recently (not so recently anymore) placed an order with sthsweet for the first time. I was very impressed and felt the need to write a review about my great experience!

I placed my order during the Black Friday sales. I'm a lover of a great deal, so the prices tempted me to give it a try as all the Chuu and icecream12 items I wanted were on a good sale. I got two items from the new Strawberry Milk collection (the Strawberry Milk Yam Cookies Hoodie and Strawberry Milk Berry MTM Jumper/ Sweatshirt) and then the navy Locked Heart Check Skirt (Heart Keyring Pointed Check Skirt) with a heart charm attached.

Earth's Beauty Shea & Aloe Lipstick 'Summer Quartz' - Review and Colour Test

A true natural lip, shimmery pink!

One of the most exciting things since switching to natural beauty, for me, is finding new brands. Just when I think I've discovered all there is to find, I find new ones! Something I particularly love is finding new, small, or undiscovered brands.

After filling my spare time the usual way, which is online shopping, I discovered a new brand to try - Earth's Beauty! The lipsticks caught my eye as always and there seemed to be some nice colours shown on the product photos, but product photos can be very deceiving as we've found out. The colour 'Summer Quartz' was my favourite option from the product photo but unfortunately an image search for this colour revealed no relevant results at this time.

My Current Makeup Collection

It's been over a year now since I started the healthier switch to natural makeup. I've been able to find replacements to my old conventional makeup rather easily and I now have everything replaced and more. It's been a fun journey so far, learning about all new the brands and products they have to offer, becoming more familiar and aware of ingredients, and saying goodbye to animal testing.

Since I've now completed my collection (for now), I decided to share it and show my favourite products! First, let's take a look at what I have in my current collection...

Lily Lolo Natural Chocolatey Lip Gloss 'Whisper' - What colour really is it?

On today's episode of my original show 'What Colour Really is it?' we have our contestant - Lily Lolo Natural Lip Gloss 'Whisper'! 

If you're unfamiliar with my colour test series, this is the part cosmetic companies hate me for (not that I imagine they ever see, but they need to). It's where we look back at all of our colour-related shopping mistakes thanks to companies using bad product photography, inaccurate descriptions and not offering samples. Until this changes, I'll be dedicated to showing the accurate colour of products in my colour test posts so others won't make the same mistakes.

100% Pure Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick 'Pink Canyon' - What colour is it really?

If you've read my previous colour showing post for the RMS Lip2Cheek Demure, you'll know how colour as shown on photos can differ very much from reality. You may buy what seems to be a lovely pink online, only to have it arrive and it's a dark brown. Even after doing hours of research, looking at many bloggers reviews of the product, you can still be deceived. That right there was the original reason of creation for my blog - to show these tricky colours just as they appear in real life, so hopefully more won't make my mistakes.

With the introduction over with, let's talk about the latest product that has been a surprise colour-wise to me - 100% Pure Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick!

I really thought I'd found it this time, that light baby pink shade I long for...

Making the switch to natural and organic products hasn't been at all difficult for me. I've been lucky and managed to find replacements for my old conventional makeup rather easily, however, there is one thing I've yet to find a replacement for and that is cream blush.

I've been a big makeup user since my early teens (sometimes a bit too big) but I'd only ever used drugstore makeup up until now.

I recently got into the K-beauty scene and purchased myself a set for the 10 step skincare routine, so I just had to sneak in some Korean makeup too! Here's what I got!
