August 2018 Favourites

19 September 2018

My favourites from August mainly consist of skincare. Once again I've been overdoing it and crashing hard. I really need to slow down because I'm not sure how much more my body can put up with. Luckily, my baby brother has just started uni, which definitely makes me feel super old because I started 7 years ago. Where does the time go? However, it does mean that with him busy at uni my life will probably calm down because it's normally him I'm running around with. 

Cruelty Free Liquid Eyeliners

5 September 2018

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that my go-to makeup look is a fierce wing. I have tried many a liquid liner in the hunt for a holy grail and I think I may have found it and it's cheaper than you think. I have tried way more than are pictured here but these are what is currently milling around in my collection so I thought I'd give you a run down. They are also all cruelty-free and range from £5.45 to £23.

Read in July Sarah Flint Edition

22 August 2018

Treating myself to a Kindle Fire was honestly one of the best things I have ever done. I am discovering so many new series' as they are cheaper and more portable. It also means I don't have to wait for the next book to be delivered. I can dive straight in.

I have recently become hooked on the Charlie Stafford series by Sarah Flint. 
If you love Angela Marsons or M.J Arlidge then you need to check her out because I cannot get enough. It's honestly everything I look for in a crime series. Gritty and slightly gruesome murders, loveable characters, fast-paced and unputdownable. There are currently 4 books in the series but I really hope there will be more.

Dose of Colors Lipstick Collection

20 August 2018

So you should all know by now that I am a huge liquid lipstick fan. I have tried many brands and have gathered quite the collection. I have done a couple of posts on Dose of Colors (here and here) but I thought I'd give you an updated post on my collection. 

Dose of Colors is probably one of my all-time favourite liquid lipsticks and the day they became available on Beauty Bay was the best day of my life (Not so good for my bank balance). They have a pretty great colour range, although I would love to see more of the "weird" bold shades like blues and greens mainly because I love the formula so much. The colour payoff is amazing, the staying power is pretty damn good and they apply really well. I also adore the packaging.

All I ever seem to manage to post these days is my monthly favourites and what I have been reading. However, I do currently have 2 beauty posts half written but with pictures so they should be up next week. Keep your eyes peeled for some cruelty-free liquid eyeliner recommendations and an updated Dose of Colors liquid lipstick collection post. If there is anything you would like to see please let me know. For now here is part one of what I read in July as I seem to be on a role with working my way through my TBR pile.

July 2018 Favourites

3 August 2018

Wow, I actually have my favourites post written on time. As usual, I'm still not wearing much makeup 1. I don't have the energy 2. I've not really been anywhere and 3. It's still too warm even with the rain. So I've pretty much been sticking to Mascara, Brow Gel, highlighter and a nude lip and I am so in love with it. Obsessed with being a glowly lil angel.

Guilt and Chronic Illness

28 July 2018

Hi my names Beth and I spend way too much of my time feeling guilty for things out of my control. Having a chronic illness affects me both physically and mentally. I spend a lot of my time in pain but the guilt makes me feel just as shit. My health means my life is pretty unpredictable and I have to spend way more time than I would like resting. Unfortunately, the world makes us feel guilty for not being busy/doing things with a solid 75% of our time.
