Tampon Taxing? How Bloody Disgusting!

A #TamponTax in 2015? How bloody disgusting (pun intended). Yep, that's right: today I will be sharing my thoughts on the recent 'tampon tax' debate and why we need to tackle the period taboo. Period.

The 'tampon tax' debate seems to be almost an annual event. Like clockwork, it rears its head, and raises age old concerns which can essentially be boiled down to the following: applying a tax to items used exclusively by females constitutes institutionalised sex discrimination in every sense of the term, and; tampons and sanitary towels are essential for women to function normally on a daily basis during their period. Essential. Essential. I.e. not a luxury! This is a controversial and unequivocally frustrating topic, and many question whether a tampon tax really has a place in the 21st century.

How to get American Beauty Products in the UK

If you're anything like me, you probably always want what you can't have, including beauty products from across the pond! Being a British beauty blogger with an endless feed full of Sephora and Ulta hauls can be more than annoying and I am forever lusting over the likes of Tarte, Kat Von D and Too Faced. In my first few months of blogging, my search for the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation (review here) led me to something quite unexpected and very exciting. Some of you or most of you may well already about Roses Beauty Store, but for those of you who don't... thank me later!

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set Review

Zoeva is a fairly new, German brush and cosmetic brand that has taken the beauty world by storm. The Rose Golden Luxury set contains eight, hand-crafted brushes which have become a statement accessory for any beauty junkie's dressing table. These may make for the ultimate accessory, but how do they perform on a day-to-day basis?

My Switch to Witch This Autumn*

I've recently come back from holiday. Lucky me, right? Not when it comes to my skin! I think I'm the only person out there who comes back from holiday looking worse than they did before! My pores became clogged with sun cream (topping up the factor thirty on an hourly basis is a must if you're as pale as me!) and the amount of makeup I wore in the evenings certainly didn't help.

Is It Magic? Or Just Another Foundation?

In case you didn't already know, foundation is my thing. The search for perfect base products never ceases for me, and I am definitely willing to splash the cash when it comes to my foundation. I was therefore fairly excited in the build up to the release of Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation, which was released in September of this year. This foundation has been five years in the making, and has been back and forth from the labs during that time, until Charlotte considered it to be 'perfect.' On the 8th September (I meant to upload this post way sooner, apologies!), I grabbed my coat and my best friend and made a mad dash for Selfridges to purchase it.
