Hands up who has a set of makeup brushes that never, to barely get used, for fear of ruining them? Yeah, I bet there are more of us than you think, and Spectrum Collections brushes are no help with that because their brushes are gorgeous and perfectly instagrammable with their mermaid and unicorn-inspired sets.
If like me, you, unfortunately, have dark purple to blue “circles” (more like a constant dark patch for me) under your eyes. Then this post is for you! Over the years I have tried gosh knows how many concealers, products etc to hide them and even some silly “trick” ways that include putting frozen tissue on your eyes…. But often they don’t work or barely cover. So, today I am writing a post on the products I have found to actually work.

Yes, I am moving again… This time it will be in a new house that Robyn and I chose together, totally unfurnished and all very exciting! For this unexpected move, I needed to make some extra cash and fast. I decided I am going to share with you the 5 things I am currently doing to earn that extra cash, because you may be wanting to move, holiday, learn to drive or anything and these are fun and some not too time-consuming ways to make fast cash!
I’ve gone right back to loving Primark.. Yep, there was a point back nearly 2 years ago where I turned snobby, I stopped shopping there, barely would wear any clothes I had of them.. not because I didn’t love them or want to, but out of prinicple that I had in my mind that more high end highstreet to designer items would 1. Make me feel better, 2. Make me look better, 3. Make me more popular, 4. Get my blog where I wanted – And which one of them did I achieve? Uh maybe the make me feel a bit better on the short term for a while, because hey I did feel great and “a million dollars” when I struted around in my Gap Jeans, Guess Handbag, Michael Kors purse, Vogue sunglasses and Lipsy tops & jackets. Yeah I did feel great, did it make my bank balance feel great or gain me friends? Nope, in fact my very closest friends right now wear Primark – Newlook clothes and for all they know all those designer items I once paraded around could be fake! (They really aren’t, most I bought at discounted price or when I went abroad and got taken in by the having extra euro’s left over)

I’m Michelle-Louise. I’m guest posting today here on Rose Above The Thorns’ blog. (Thanks for having me, Charlee!)
Coachella may have come and gone but it’s sparked the festival vibes and since Summer is just around the corner, today’s post naturally had to be festival themed.
If you are like me, have a full-time job or perhaps even a busy and demanding part-time one, we know how easy it can be to just fall onto the sofa and stay there for hours eating food and watching tv. Yes, the intention to blog there, but not much willpower to actually do it, and this becomes far too much of an easy ‘rut’ to break. Then there are the evenings when you think “I could really do with blogging tonight, but I have been asked to go out”, or just the, I really could do with a few hours from the house moments. We all get it from time to time, so I am going to tell you tips and ways on how you can get your blogger game together and still have a fun social life!
Yep, I am 23 now Yikes! and I got a little bit spoilt for it, the day was jam-packed and I will shortly be writing up a post on that geeky fun day but for now, you can take a nose of the girly and geeky items I received for my birthday.
At this precise moment I am 22, in fact, I will be 22 for another 5 days as I am writing this on Sunday the 23rd of April. I thought I’d write a little post on how my life has turned out already (ha!) what I hoped to achieve, what I hope to achieve in the future and why the bloody hell I now feel a hell of a lot older than I did 4 months ago!
It’s gorgeously sunny as I sit in the garden typing this with my camera, music and sound of the waves and cars surrounding me.It’s pretty incredible but the garden could do with a bit of TLC, wood from the kitchen and old decking are leaned up against the walls as the landlord has been yet unable to burn/ get rid and I sit here feeling inspired to make this a lovely place to invite friends over for drinks and such. So I have decided to put together a post on a few things that are on my to buy list or even just an idea wishlist of how I could make it look good.
I have recently been very good with my money and really only buying what was necessary or a cheap treat to myself (like my KISS nails).
But I did have to buy a fair few beauty items as I was running out, so I tried some new brands/products and thought I’d give you a little haul and a brief review on my thoughts (have they worked as promised or not).
