Real Techniques Brush Collection Review.

Yes, I eventually have a decent amount of Real Techniques brushes and I’ve used them all long enough to tell you what I think of them! Where do I begin? Their softness? The grip factor? The precision? I just keep asking myself why I didn’t get these before I did. I must admit I didn’t think they’d […]

L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation review.

I must admit it did take me a while to take the plunge and buy this foundation. I’ve never heard of a cushion foundation until now as I’m used to using liquid foundations. This foundation has truly revolutionised my makeup routine – it gives a nude finish and it’s build-able. The other foundations I’ve used in the […]

Chris Belson is the new kid on the block in the music scene. I had the opportunity to interview him about his debut EP Moon Songs and about his influences in music. Tell me a little bit about the EP. It’s a collection of 5 new songs, all of which seem to have a kind […]

My Top 5 “Cultural Hubs” in Sunderland.

Culture is a big part of any area in the world. Some people may say that Sunderland isn’t cultural – it is. But that’s another post, for another day. I’ve lived in Sunderland for nearly two years now so as you can imagine, I’ve gotten to know the area pretty well. I’ve identified my top 5 “cultural hubs” […]
