I’ve always been a questioner. Whilst I’m reasonably good with decisions, big and small, I often ask myself whether I’m following my head or heart. My heart has made some excellent decisions in the past. It has taken me out of my comfort zone, pushed me to become better and helped make some of my more emotional decisions. And just as much as my heart, my head has also helped me get where I am today.

For the last however many years of my life, I’ve made ridiculous New Year’s Resolutions that I would never have been able to keep, like running a 10k with absolutely no real interest in running one, learning a new language (I think I’ll just stick to the 4 I already know) and visiting new countries (with no income).

For the past seven Christmasses I’ve had uni assignments and revision galore, so believe me when I say that I know how tempting it is to sack the work off in favour of doing festive activities and spending time with your nearest and dearest. But sadly, that works needs doing and I’m always an advocate of the earlier the better. Here are some top tips for getting work done over the festive period.

2017 is the first year that I’ve gone for quality over quantity when it comes to makeup. I’ve finally found my favourite brands and fallen out of love with a few others. So here’s a round-up of my absolute faves from this year. Urban Decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette I’m quite the Urban Decay lover so whenever a new palette comes out I really have to weight up whether I need it or just want it. I spotted this palette the week of my birthday so whilst it definitely wasn’t a necessity, it was a little present from me to…
