I’ve also been a total advocate for natural lighting. You go back and read any of my photography blog posts in the past and I’ve been so proud of being a ‘natural light photographer’ and shared many tips on how to make the most of natural light. Now when I started blogging again in January, I decided I needed a photography shake-up and on a whim, I decided to buy a ring light. My main intention with my ring light was being able to photograph more makeup looks and close-ups but actually, I’ve found myself using it for product photography too.

I’d been wanting to try Fenty Beauty for a long while and I wanted to try it so damn much that I even made my dad queue with me to get my hands on this highlighter, so I think that shows the dedication here. Well, the highlighter I picked up, the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Lighting Dust & Fire Crystal has not disappointed and it has fast become one of my favourite beauty products so I’m keen to try some more from Fenty. An order is definitely on the way soon, so I thought whilst I was ordering, I’d order one of the highlighter duos for one of my lovely readers. This post is half review, to show you why I love this highlighter so much, and half giveaway – so if you’re interested in getting your hands on any shade of your choice, get scrolling.

Oh hey there! It has been a little while since I last blogged as I pretty much decided to take December off blogging (bar some pre-scheduled posts) and my time away ran a little into January too. I’ve been blogging consistently for many a year now, so I felt that a break was well overdue, and now I’ve come back with a new layout, new photography equipment, and a whole bunch of new ideas so I feel completely and utterly refreshed. I thought today I’d come on quickly to launch my new blog layout and also share with you some blogging/life goals for 2018.

It has been a little while since I’ve done one of these posts but they’re one of my favourite posts to write as they’re all about sharing the love! Throughout the month (or months in this case) I make note of some of my favourite blog posts which I really enjoyed reading for whatever reason and then when I write these I go through all of them and see the ones that stuck with me. As always, these three are all quite different and I try to include some “deeper” blog posts and others that I just really enjoyed or found useful. So without further ado let’s see what I’ve been loving recently!
