Music | Temples Festival 2015

This weekend sees the second installment of Bristol's newest Extreme Metal Festival: Temples!

As a lover of all things metal (except power metal, 'cos y'know) and as a festival veteran, I was truly gutted that I wasn't able to attend the festival this year.

Lifestyle | Bank Holiday Weekend Haul

Beauty | Products I Would Never Buy Again

A super pale girl.

Beauty | The Concealer Edit

Over the years I've tried many, MANY products to hide my poor skin enhance my pretty face.  I've suffered with acne for over 17 years.
 
Yes, seventeen years!
 
Since my early teens and now, even in my thirties I still wouldn't say my skin is acne free but it has improved a hellva lot. I put this improvement down to the treatments I had in my teens, followed by years on a specific contraceptive pill (Dianette).  But as I recently changed to the contraceptive implant my skin has reacted a little too teenage for my liking.....(TMI or what?)
 
I know people say you shouldn't cover blemishes with make up, but who are they kidding I've never really been a fan of green/ redness neutralising products.  To be honest I don't tend to get a lot of redness, rather I look for a product that would compliment my foundation shade well and has good staying power - just that extra something to hide those pesky wee blights I'm a pale girl, I tend to use the lightest shade foundation in most brands and I find that concealer can be quite limited in the shade offering. 
 
These are my favourite concealers as of late
