How to add colour into your makeup routine


Hello Beauties, 
Whenever I wear bold makeup or bright pink lips, people always say, "I wish I could pull that off". Well, guess what, YOU CAN! I love playing with different colours and you can make it as subtle as you like. Keep on reading for my top six tips. 

Odd Birds and Size Zero Book Reviews



Hi Beauties, 
We were reminded how scary the world can be this week, how one moment can cause such heartbreak and terror, changing people's lives forever. We were reminded to hug our loved ones a little longer and spread kindness wherever possible. My heart is with the people of Manchester. I think of you often and my heart breaks for you. 

Sometimes, when the world does seem a little dark and I find it hard to come up for air, I like to escape. Escape into another world and forget the troubles of the day, if only for a moment. I've been lost in the world of fashion and birds this week. It by no means makes me forget, it carefully patches the wounds and makes it a little easier to breathe again. 


Everyday Makeup Favourites


Hello beauties, 
When you just want to stay in bed, sometimes doing your makeup can be the last thing you feel like doing in the morning. What if you could stay in bed for an extra 10 minutes AND still have time to do your makeup? I've put together my everyday makeup favourites that will not only look good but will also only take 15 minutes to apply in the morning. 

Weekend Makeup Essentials




Hello beauties, 
Happy Sunday! It's been super cold in Auckland over the last few days, it's AMAZING. I love winter and I'm so excited to start wearing winter PJs! It's the small things. 
Yesterday I went for an amazing brunch with a group of #Girlbosses I met through a Facebook group. We sat around drinking mimosas and it was great. It's so important to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people and I'm determined to do more of this. For those brunch days, I like to wear minimal makeup, so today I thought I'd share with you my weekend makeup essentials. 

Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation Review


Hello beauties, 
Cushion foundations have become all the rage. EVERYONE is talking about them. I'm not usually a fan of 'light' foundation coverage (full coverage all the way), but I thought I'd take one for the team and try out Maybelline's Dream Cushion. Keep on reading for my full review. 

Pamper Mum This Mother's Day


Hi beauties, 
Happy Mother's Day! Special shout out to my lovely mum - I hope you're being spoilt. 
Mums. Where would we be without them? They are our first friends, our rocks and they love us unconditionally. I would like to think we appreciate our mums every single day of the year, but sometimes I think we forget to show it, which is why I've put together a little gift guide including little things you can treat mum with, all year round. 

Favourite Podcasts


Hello, my name is Hayley Burrows and I'm obsessed with Podcasts.
I love listening to podcasts in the morning when I'm doing my makeup, on the bus to work, in the bath, just anywhere, really. I find them so relaxing and I end up learning so much. Keep on reading to check out some of my favourites.

Persona Cosmetics Identity Palette Review



Hello beauties, 
Happy Sunday! I hope you're all having a good day. I spent my morning doing yoga and a short 10-minute meditation. It's so important to take some time out for yourself and you'll be amazed at how energized and refreshed you feel afterwards. 
I posted a picture on my Instagram of the Persona Cosmetics Identity palette and I got so many comments asking if it was worth the money. I've been using this for about a month now so thought I'd let you know what I think so far.
