Carbonated bubble clay mask

My search for the perfect face mask has been ongoing (even though the Tony Moly masks I reviewed before are pretty much as close to perfection as I’ll ever get)

I’d heard about this type of mask through several youtube beauty gurus trying it out and decided that I just had to try it out myself. So I went onto Amazon and found one for a decent price. Delivery time wasn’t ideal, mainly because I’m spoiled with Prime, but despite what my initial email said, I actually received it much faster than I thought. 

The packaging is super cute!

The mask itself has a faint smell to it, but it smells wonderful!

Almost as soon as I started applying it to my face I could hear it starting to fizz!

It took a few minutes for the bubbles to appear…

But when they did, they consumed most of my face. That photo was taken after around ten minutes of my mum laughing at me, hence why the top of my forehead no longer has any bubbles on it. 

A quick rub in then rinse with warm water and my skin feels amazing. My skin feels so smooth and clean. 

I got it just a little too close to my eyes (Mainly because I hadn’t expected it to fluff up so much) so just under my eyes feels a little sensitive (but I do have ridiculously sensitive eyes). 

I have super sensitive skin but I didn’t have any sensitiveness or itchiness after using the mask. Definitely a good purchase!

Winter photography

Although I’m not the biggest fan of winter (I’m more of an autumn/spring lover) I can’t deny that winter is a fantastic time for taking photographs.

Being brave…

Usually when we go for long drives it’s my dad that takes the wheel. He’s totally at ease driving while I used to be a nervous wreck!

I stopped driving for 7 years while I was living abroad, but when I came back home, one of the first things I had to do was get a car. I got back into the swing of it quite quickly, but I was still happy to stick with short journeys. 

Today I decided to be brave and ended up doing a 180 miles coastal tour with my dad and I loved every second of it!

We even managed to fit in some time for some photo breaks!

I guess the moral of this is, go do that thing that you’ve always wanted to try but have been too afraid to. Go on that long trip, dye your hair that shade of pink you’ve always wanted to, try skydiving…  

You might fail, but hey, you can learn just as much from failure as you can from success. It’s all about attitude. 

And who knows, you might just end up having a ball.

The best face masks ever!

I have tried countless numbers of different face masks over the years. Some cheap, some midrange, and some expensive ones. 

But I think I’ve finally found the masks for me… Tonymoly sheet face masks!


These Korean face masks are by far one of the best products I have ever used. (Quite fairly priced at £10.49 for 11 different masks. They are also prime eligible. I’ll put the link at the end of this post.)

All 11 masks are different. They range from pomegranate to promote elasticity to red wine for pore care. I have naturally oily/combination skin and my skin is really sensitive, so I’m always a little hesitant with trying new products. I can confidently say that I’ve never had any problems with these masks. No redness, no greasy feeling skin afterwards, just nicely hydrated and soft, clean skin. 
This is the second time I’ve bought these masks and it’s definitely not the last time!

New style 

I bought some new clothes the other day and decided to take a step away from my usual style (kinda dark / rock style) and stepped out my comfort zone a little. 


I have to say that I actually felt really confident! I still relied on the old faithful jeans and boots, but changes should be done in baby steps, right?

Not over you…

Jimin stood on stage in the small club. His hand caressing the mic in front of him as he crooned out his bands newest song. A large group of girls stood squealing at the front of the stage. He smiled at them and winked at a few, knowing that a little fan service would keep them interested. But there was only one girl he was interested in.

To dye or not to dye…

So, I used to dye my hair all the time. You name a colour, my hair has been it (sometimes intentionally, sometimes not).

I stopped dyeing my hair about 6 years ago as my hair really needed a break but lately I’ve had that itch to dye it again. I managed to resist for a couple of months, but I finally gave in and dyed it again.

I have to admit, considering the fact that the dye literally cost £1, I am so pleased with the results!

Hopefully this cures my desire to dye my hair and doesn’t just make it worse…
