Tanya Burr Luxe Lip Gloss in Martha Moo Review and Swatches

Tanya Burr // Luxe Lip Gloss in Martha Moo // Review & Swatches!

Hi guys!  I know I usually ramble on a bit, but this is only going to be a super-quick post.  I recently bought the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Luxe Lip Gloss in Martha Moo.  Everyone seems to love it, so I just thought I would quickly give you my opinion on it!

The Name…

My first question was… why on earth is it called a lip gloss?!  I’m confused.  Why is nobody talking about this?!  Haha.  So Martha Moo is actually a matte liquid lipstick – I have no idea why she decided to call it a lip gloss.  If you’re expecting glossy lips, you’re going to be sorely disappointed!  I’m sure you know this already, but if you don’t, the name is inspired by Tanya’s dog, Martha (very cute)!

Nails of the Day // Summer Flower Nail Art!

Hey guys!  Another week, another nails of the day post 🙂  I like sharing my nails with you as it forces me to experiment and be a bit more creative.  It’s all too easy to fall back on the same old favourites otherwise!  Bear in mind that my nail art is never going to be amazing, as I have really shaky hands from my M.E.  But I still have fun doing them, so I don’t mind if you don’t?  I decided to try a bit of summery flower nail art today!

Superhero Nails Series // Marvel – Captain America Nails!

Hey guys!  I hope you’re having a great day.  It’s been a long, long time, but I’m finally back with the next part of my Superhero Nails Series!  This time, since I recently saw Captain America Civil War, it had to be Captain America nails!  

These nails actually took a long time… as I’ve mentioned before, I have very shaky hands and often have little tremors.  This makes doing nail art a bit tricky, so I know they’re not the best.  But I enjoyed doing them and wanted to share them with you!

Chronic Illness // 5 Common Misconceptions // Expectations vs Reality!

Hey guys! How are you?  I hope you’re well.  And for my spoonie friends, I hope you’re as well as you can be given the circumstances!  When I initially had the idea for this post, it was going to be quite serious.  I wanted to rant about how people don’t understand chronic illness, and those who romanticise about ‘how nice it must be’ to stay in bed all day. 

But now that I’ve thought about it a bit, I don’t really want this to be negative.  Instead, I’m going to take a light-hearted look at expectations vs reality when it comes to chronic illness! Chronic Illness expectations vs reality common chronic illness misconceptions Continue reading

Home Office Makeover // Copper, Mint & Pink + Memoboard DIY

Hi guys!  I’m so excited to share this post with you.  I’ve never been the best at interiors or designing rooms.  I like things to match and look pretty but I know I’m not a natural interior designer!  But I had so much fun shopping for a summer homeware haul and doing this little home office makeover.  I loved combining all my favourite colours into a summery scheme.

Ocean Finance very kindly offered me £50 to do an home makeover (this post is not, however, sponsored).  They set up this project to bring our homes to the fore this summer, and give them the TLC they deserve!  My drab office area certainly needed some TLC!

We have been in our house for less than a year, so most of it has recently been decorated.  However, I was desperately in need of a home office makeover!  My desk and computer had just been shoved in the corner of the living room, and was looking rather drab and dreary.
