A year ago, I became an English Language and Spanish graduate from Bangor University. Fun story by Stephanie Clayton, aged 23 and 3/4. No but seriously, I spent four years preparing for this day (not physically- although if you're wearing fake tan then preparing a few days before is key. Last minute tan+rain=disaster.) Anyway, let's… Continue reading The Graduate: One year on
Since having a baby, I have changed my makeup routine frequently. There are, however, some products that I still continue to use because I just can't be without them. I'm not going to mention the standard ones like Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer because that one is bloody obvious.
