Fast and Easy Tips for Overcoming Writer's Block


So, today I was desperately searching for what to write about. Nothing sounded good. I thought of all the products I've used recently, and nothing came to mind as being ready for review. I started getting nervous. It's Friday! I post every Friday! What am I going to do? What am I going to write about? I had the dreaded Writer's Block.

Have you been there? That point where, even though you might have loads to write about, you're just absolutely blocked? Nothing sounds right. No topic stands out. You're getting worried about not having a post prepared. Maybe even multiple posts! Your heart starts to beat fast, your leg starts to jiggle under your desk, you're looking around wildly at every last thing you own! I know that's how I get.

Then it hit me! Why not write about Writer's Block? Why not give you some of my tried and true tips to help you ride the wave and come out on the other side buzzing full of creative energy. Ready to break through the block? Let's go!

Skinetica Anti-Blemish Treatment - Review

Skinetica Anti-Blemish Treatment, £9.95

DISCLAIMER: This post contains products sent to me for free by a brand or PR company in exchange for a review. However, all words and opinions are firmly my own, as always.

Fighting acne got you down? Hate the feel of having to load up on multiple products to keep your skin in line? Today, I'm bringing you a review on a fabulous new product that helps to clear up your skin while also serving as a primer for your makeup. Skinetica has been making the rounds in the UK after becoming a smash hit in the October 2012 Glossybox. Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when Skinetica contacted me, an American blogger, about sampling their product.

For those of you not in the know, Skinetica's Anti-Blemish Treatment is this amazing wonder product that clears acne, cuts down on future breakouts, and doubles as a primer for your makeup application, all without harsh ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. At first I thought this was a tall order for just one product, but y'all know how much I love a good double duty item. With this in mind, I was ready to test out the claims!

The Starting Off Project | Eyeshadow


Hello, beauties! Today I'm coming to you with the next entry in The Starting Off Project, and it's all about one of the most fun to experiment with products, eyeshadow. For those not in the know, eyeshadow is this funky little product that you apply to the eyelids to create all sorts of looks (obvi!). From natural to glam, smoky to shimmery, anything you can imagine, you can create with a steady hand and a little bit of patience.

Aubrey Organics Calming Skin Therapy Hydrating Mask - Review

Aubrey Organics Calming Skin Therapy Hydrating Mask, $14.95

I don't know about y'all, but I love days where I can just indulge in a good pamper. There is nothing more relaxing than settling in with a face mask, a steaming cup of tea, and a Netflix marathon. So I was thrilled when I was approached by Aubrey Organics to trial a face mask from their sensitive skin line. I have found that over the past year or so, I've been adding more and more organic products into my beauty routine, and just recently I've started to experiment with loads of face masks in an attempt to whip my skin into shape. If you're looking for a new face mask to add to your rotation, then read on!

The First Time Tag


Recently I'd been tagged by Daphne from, and Kate from Kate Bobbi to do The First Time tag, For those of you out of the loop, it's essentially a tag about some of our "firsts" (and not in that way, so get your head out of the gutter). It's a great way to get to know the person behind the blog, and I was really excited to get tagged. So, here are some of my firsts!
