Life | The Killers

The Killers, a band I have loved since I first heard Somebody Told Me on the radio. I don’t want to alarm you, but I’d have been in year six when that happened...

They’re a band I always dip in and out of, but they have a song for every occasion. Not everybody’s cup of tea, which I appreciate but Brandon Flowers you are a god. Both with words and your voice.

I think it’s fair to say that the Glastonbury set sealed the deal in my mind that I needed to see The Killers live, so we scrambled for tickets. Being from Vegas these guys know how to put on a show, everybody tells you, but you never believe them. I hope I caught enough footage for you to believe me.

Friday First | The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Body Wash

Time for me to talk about a really attractive topic again, but I know enough people struggle with it for me to be talking about this.

Beauty | Physicians Formula Butter Blush

Did I buy a blush purely because everyone tells me just how incredible it smells? Yes, yes I did, and I'm not ashamed.

Friday First | e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator

I realise I'm about to say something I'll never be able to come back from but step aside Lush... I've actually found a replacement for one of my staples from you.

Friday First | Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

It was probably this time last year that my cousin and I decided to take the plunge and try for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets. Fast forward fifteen hours later, we have tickets but then the site crashes and we're sent right to the back of the queue so we totally give up, it's clearly not meant to be. Then faith tells us to try one more time, we check back in the morning and the tickets have saved in our basket, we have never hit the purchase button quicker in our lives without looking back.

Friday First | The Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation

So let's talk about the Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation from The Body Shop, and believe me when I tell you how excited I was to finally get my hands on this and try it out. I've read a few different reviews, and all of them have strongly suggested to actually colour match with this foundation in store. I definitely agree with this, I personally went for the lightest shade available while I was buying online and I can only get away with this because I have to lighten up most of my foundations anyway, but for the first time in my life I think I've found a foundation that actually matches me and is almost too light for me.

Friday First | Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer

Thank you, TK Maxx for two things; 1. Finally allowing me to finally get my hands on the Shadow Insurance from Too Faced, and 2. Ruining photos forever with your security tape.

Guestober | Planning Ahead

When it comes to blogging, especially professional blogging, you need to plan ahead. And while our lovely host has been super organised, I have not been. You see, when it comes to planning stuff, I am the worst. Or am I?

Guestober | Caring For Combination Skin

I’m Abi. I’m 28 and I have the skin problems of a teenager - it’s greasy, I get spots and it is unpredictable from one day to the next, never mind one season to the next. I spent most of my twenties waiting for the day when I’d have normal skin and I didn’t get spots, but (spoiler alert) that day never came. In fact, the more I read about how to help my skin, the more I realise that there’ll probably never be a time in my life when I don’t have issues.

Friday First | The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer

Realistically, I should have written and published this post weeks ago when I spoke about The Ordinary foundation. But that apparently isn't the life I'm about, so here we are finally talking about The Ordinary's High Adherence Silicone Primer.

Beauty | Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit

Remember all the hype that surrounded the Barry M Matte Me Lip Kits when they first came out? Well, I finally jumped on that train long after it had left the station and finally picked one up. Now, my local Superdrug doesn't have the best Barry M stand and colour selection was a bit poor. That, and metallic is definitely in this season, but I don't want shiny lips thanks.

Friday First | Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL

Oh, Rodial, a brand I have a huge wishlist from skincare wise but let's face it, your prices are ridiculous. I'd heard through the grapevine that you had a makeup range, but I didn't know what you did. So thank you Glossybox for giving me a mini mascara of yours to try.
