REVIEW | ESSIE TURQUOISE & CAICOS


Hi everyone! Today I’m going to review Essie Turquoise & Caicos.
I really like the packaging of Essie’s nail varnishes. It’s simple but cute. Turquoise & Caicos is a really nice turquoise colour - “Oh, really?” You definitely need two coats of this though. I always apply two coats of every nail varnish when painting my nails, so for me that’s no biggie.

Hayley posted this on her Instagram:
So happy I finally got to let the cat outta the bag! Seriously, it’s a huge huge deal to me that MAC was interested in doing a collection with me. The colors couldn’t have come out any better, they’re really exactly what I hoped for. This is an online only exclusive collection… It comes out the same day as our album, April 9th! (This is the U.S. album release date, FYI). Hope you all will pick some of the products that I made with MAC and feel like the coolest cats in town when you wear them. Be prepared to see many an orange smear across my face at the upcoming shows cause I’ve already got my hands on all this stuff! ps… thanks SO much for all the love and the kind words you guys have all sent me about this collaboration. I’m so damn grateful to do something so fun and have people be just as excited as I am about it.

UPDATE | EXAM TIME!


Picture from weheartit.com

Hi everyone! I’m gutted to tell you that I’ll be posting fewer posts over the next two weeks. I have exams, which means I have less time to write new things. I hope you understand. I will have a lot more time on my hands when my exams are over, so that’s a good thing haha!

PERSONAL | LUMPS AND BUMPS


Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about my eyes. You may think: what about it?
Back in October, I had an eye infection. It was horrific, I’ve had eye infections in the past, but it never was as extreme as this one. I decided to see the doctors, but they couldn’t do anything for me.
