photo(5)

I am not one to spend too much time on my make-up. For work, shopping, grabbing coffee and general day-to-day wear, I use concealer under my eyes, blusher on my cheeks, a dust of powder on my T-Zone and add a few soft strokes of Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil to define my eyebrows. Then if I am feeling really fancy – or just have a spare two minutes – I may also use a bit of mascara on my lashes (currently No7 Stay Perfect Mascara). View Post

Ten reasons why New Zealand should be on your travel bucket list

New Zealand completely blew me away and I have not been able to stop raving about this place ever since (it is now two years ago since I was there).
