SS18 Makeup Wishlist



My name is Sarah-Louise and I am addicted to makeup. Using makeup, buying makeup, talking about makeup, watching makeup videos, I'm totally addicted. So much so that after Christmas just past I went on a makeup buying ban because I was buying and buying and buying and not using the makeup I already had. So apart from a couple of necessities for my kit (I'm an aspiring freelance makeup artist), a couple of minor slips and a temporary lift of the ban when I was in NYC because hello I couldn't not go to Sephora, I've been pretty damn good at keeping to my ban. And because I've been so good I've accumulated a list of makeup bits that I am desperate to buy when I have the funds to do so!

10 Years On: A Letter To My Sixteen Year Old Self


I touched on some of things I mention in this post in my post: 2018: The Year Of Change but this delves much deeper into some things and how I was feeling. It was an extremely hard post to write and it made me relive a lot of things that weren't pleasant. I'm being brutally honest with myself by writing this and it's an uncomfortable but freeing feeling. I'm going to give a trigger warning as suicide and thoughts of suicide are mentioned. Please please please heed this warning if those topics trigger or affect you in any way ❤️ I'd also like to add that I have just written this in the last hour or so. I've scanned it for spelling errors and mistakes but it's largely unedited because I think if I spend too much time poring over it, I'll lose my nerve and not post it at all so forgive me if it's a bit unpolished!

A Mother's Goodbye Review


I promise that this blog isn't turning into a solely book review blog. It's just that inspiration for blog posts has been hard to find lately. I have so many ideas for posts but when it comes to writing them down, my brain just stutters. I think this blogger's block has been going on since the end of last year and I'm sick of it. I'm hoping it will get better! But in the mean time I'm back with another book review!
