L’Oreal x Balmain – A Match Made In Beauty Heaven

Nothing makes a girl feel quite as posh as a handbag filled with gorgeous beauty treats. And while sometimes, these can require a little saving before one can splash her cash, this September, the one update to my Autumn / Winter makeup bag is both, surprisingly affordable but decadent at the same time. I’m talking, of course, about the new…

Breakfast With Fenty Beauty

They say September is like the January of fashion – the start of a fresh new metaphorical ‘year’ full of new-season trends cascading down the fashion week runways, hot new line drops, exciting product launches and absolutely unmissable events. Well, the beauty world isn’t one to be outdone, and they’re pulling every rabit they have out of their magic hats,…

Turning An Item You Hate Into An Outfit You’ll Love

Raise your hand if youre an obsessive compulsive shopper like I am. I’ll shop at the start of a new season, to cheer myself up if I’m having a bad day, to celebrate if I’m having a good day, to treat myself, for made-up occasions and real ones, before I go on holiday, while I’m on holiday, because I ‘need’…

The Bank Holiday Weekend In Pictures

Sometimes, when a holiday just isn’t an option, a weekend worth of spending quality time with your favourite people, persuing hobbies and eating great food (washed down with Prosecco, of course), can be just as fulfilling.

My SheIn Shopping Experience

So its been a while, huh? I’ve taken a break from blogging for the past month for a few reasons – (a) the mouse on my laptop hasn’t been working, so I haven’t been able to edit any pictures. (b) I was feeling a bit out of sorts about my love for blogging (c) and so I went back home…

Taking A Kimono From The Beach To The Street

If you’ve read the last couple of posts, you’ll know that my trip to Turkey fell through at the last minute, after I booked my tickets and bought practically a whole new holiday wardrobe I couldn’t even afford to begin with for it.

Skincare Spotlight: Flint + Flint

Anybody who knows me and knows me well will tell you that I am a total and complete makeup junkie. But while I love mastering the smokey eye, constructing the perfect brow and painting on a bold lip, when it comes to finishing off my skin, I’m more than a little lazy, forgoing foundation 90% of the time and only…

A Letter To My Teen Self On My Birthday

Dear Anushka (or as everyone now calls you, Nush), Happy Birthday from the future! You’re 28 today and were meant to be celebrating your birthday in Turkey, but things didn’t quite work out as planned at the last minute.

Our Epic Turkish Fail

So here I am, NOT sitting on the beach sipping a cocktail in Turkey like I said I would be in my last post. Not wearing any of the new clothes I bought for my holiday. Not anywhere but back on my own sofa writing this and drowning my sorrows in a tub of ice cream. We packed our bags,…
