Are any of you beauties on Snapchat? If so, you’d have noticed that the first Snap filter on the conveyor is one promoting the upcoming Kenzo x H&M collaboration!
Cast your mind back to 2015 when H&M collaborated with Balmain, and the year before that when the high street giant collaborated with Vera Wang… Well, this year it’a the turn of Kenzo (another luxury clothing brand).
Today, I’ll be writing you a full and frank review about Younique Corporation‘s new(ish) Royalty Range – and not the Frank who lives next door to you, potentially. One choice word keeps coming to mind: “luxurious”.
A little back story on Younique… Younique’s mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world. Some of the profit made by this brand goes to charities that support rape victims, therefore it’s a good cause to get behind.
Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft, a brother-and-sister team, founded Younique in September 2012 with a mission to uplift, empower, and validate women across the globe. Derek and Melanie firmly believe that all women should feel valued, smart, and empowered through opportunities of personal growth and financial reward!
Girls and guys who enjoy wearing make-up, this post goes out to you!
One of my best friends introduced me to an app that has strengthened my selfie game by infinity and beyond lightyears.

Castor Oil vs Coconut oil… Which one do you use? If you answered neither, that’s fine, but which one would you choose?
In a similar report published by The Little Health Company they chose to put Coconut Oil up against the equally wonderful Olive Oil (as opposed to Castor Oil) and Coconut Oil won the battle! #WellOilBeDamned
Coconut Oil edges it in our opinion. It’s nourishing properties will leave your hair looking healthy and vibrant will feeling soft and the smell is divine.
The pros of using Castor Oil:
Castor Oil is a thick, stick oil that prevents hair loss by coating strands and helps them stay firmly attached to the root.
It’s is considered an anti-bacterial and anti-fungus which means: in the unlikely event that someone throws mushroom seeds on your hair, you won’t see Portobellos or Shiitakes spurting out later on. #GIrlsJustWannaHaveFUN
Being rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids makes Castor Oil a great contender if you’re looking for an oil to strengthen your nails, hair and/or skin.
This oil also makes your hair glossy but almost too shiny (if overused).
Castor Oil is cost-effective and a little it goes a long way.
The pros of using Coconut Oil:
Coconut Oil stops and prevents dandruff. Similar to Castor Oil, it too is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial – just don’t try cleaning your hands with it after eating, shaking a flu-stricken person’s hand and/or getting off a mode of public transport, it’s oil NOT sanitiser.
This essential oil is also good at protecting against hair shedding and/or head lice thanks to its Vitamins E and K content.
Massaging Coconut Oil into the scalp improves blood circulation, ensures that oxygen is absorbed and strengthening the hair follicles resulting in soft, strong and healthy hair.
It also improves the hair cuticle whilst keeping the scalp moisturised, prohibiting dust and pollution.
Its high in fatty acids nature supplies the hair with protein which helps retain strength and eliminates breakage.
Coconut Oil is one of the very few oils that has what it takes to fix split ends as well as repair damaged hair from root to tip while also smoothening rough, coarse or fizzy hair. #ItsMAGICYouKnow
It’s now 7:30 on a Tuesday morning (at the time of typing this) and where I should be getting ready for work, I’m writing this instead…
Soap & Glory is one of the most underrated brands ever! I use their blood circulation and exfoliating face brush (A Brush with Greatness) knowing that it’s the most useful and best tool I’ve ever used. However, we’re not here to discuss this – instead we’re hear to talk about their glorious lip plumper.
If, like me, you’ve got flat lips that need a bit of a plump or a fill, you’ll want* to read this!
