    Native – 6 Months On

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So it you cast your mind back to some time during the spring I changed to a natural deodorant. It’s been like 6 months now. Or thereabouts at least, so where am I at with it? First of all since the last time I spoke about this I have only made one other purchase, it was the autumn scents pack. I didn’t need to make a purchase until September or October. These have some serious lasting power. I think one bar lasts about two months with daily usage (sometimes twice daily) and so that means that it is way more cost effective then my spray on which…

    Glossier – A Year On

    Hi, Hey, Hello! If you can even believe (said in the tone of JVN always) I have been using Glossier products for a year now. The die hard obsession that I initially harboured has cooled down a little and I no longer feel super compelled to buy every new thing they release, and has simmered to a constant appreciation instead. Because I stand by the fact that these product have changed my damn skin’s life. My skin was slowly becoming a bigger and bigger oil slick and had just somehow became worse that it was when I was a teenager and it needed to catch a break. Glossier did that.…

    Frank Body

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Now I’ve been feeling the need to make some small changes to my skincare routine so that I can really get my skin back to living as good a life as possible. I’ve mentioned this a lot before, it’s mostly on point at the point since Glossier came into my life (which I’ll bang on about tomorrow) however there are some areas that need to be tweaked. For one I don’t properly exfoliate as much as I should. I also need to use a more detoxifying mask than whatever one I currently have in circulation. These things have now been phased into my life as of w/c…

    Maui Moisture

    Hi, Hey, Hello! And we’re out of the letters, which means normal (whatever the hell that means to me anymore) service will be resumed. I’m starting the month with a little bit of a beauty chat for the next few days. Then there will be some writing updates (because what up NaNo Month). And then because it’s been a hot minute the book reviews will be coming thick and fast. For now though let me swing back into this post. Which is hair based. I had to emergency buy some new styling products because I couldn’t find the Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie and my Only Curls styling creme kept…

    The 16 Week Plan

    Hi, Hey, Hello! I literally had a whole different post written to go up today and then I talked to my brother for hours last night and it got thrown into a whole new light and I realised it was kind of bullshit and the fact that I was struggling all day to write the post in the first place should have been a damn sign. So this post is happening instead. There are now 15 weeks left of the year. I know this because I counted and for some reason I keep seeing a countdown to Christmas on my Twitter and that’s indicating how much time is left of…
