Peachy Keen: My Favourite Too Faced Palette

Now Spring has arrived and the weather is slowly (but surely) warming up, I've began fake tanning and switching up my makeup routine. Just like any 'girlie-girl', I tend to get a little bit obsessed with makeup and the newest trends, and we all know that everyone is still going crazy for the highlighting hype of 2016. When I ran out of my NYX Illuminator recently, I started searching for a new highlighter and spotting this nifty little glow kit from Too Faced, I knew I had to give it a go. Including a bronzer, blusher, as well as a gorgeous golden illuminator, Sweet Peach Glow Kit from Too Faced smells beautiful and gives your skin a subtle yet blooming radiance.

Why I Need 'Me-Time'

Albert Dock, Liverpool

Location: Albert Dock, The Colonnades, Liverpool

Everyone seems to agree that 2016 was a bad year. Every week the news just seemed to get more and more depressing, and I met so many people who were stuck in a 'I'm in my twenties and have no idea what I'm doing with my life' rut - myself included. By the festive period, I was ready to let off all of the built up anxiety through means of aggressively pulling crackers, gorging on cheese boards and leisurely drinking prosecco alongside dinner. That high life couldn't last forever though, and as 2017 arrived I began to look ahead, even cheesily setting myself some New Year's Resolutions.  I guess the great turn around was actually getting a job. Last year after volunteering abroad, I didn't expect the job hunt to be so tiring and relentless, and with the world feeling like it was going to end (Brexit, celeb death toll rising alarmingly, Donald Trump etcetera) I felt as though I was walking around in dystopian fiction, far from the playground I'd felt just a year earlier in my secure and fun sales assistant role with no plans or cares, except a vague schedule to go travelling between working and saving. But it was time for real stuff, the real world. Choose life and all that. Be an adult. And so, it was time to move on.
