may inspiration – 5 things

Welcome back to another tiny list of the things I’m liking this month! I actually can’t believe how far my little blog has come in such a short time. When I posted the April Inspo/5 Things, I was fresh af and had about 2.5 followers, total. Since then, I’ve managed to somehow build up 400 regular subscribers as well 1500 Instagram followers, which I know probably doesn’t seem like a lot – but for me, this is huge progress for only month or two, so I’m thrilled and grateful. Thank you!! Still fresh af though. Continue reading “may inspiration – 5 things”

BASECAMP – the ordinary

BASECAMP is a review series where the same product or product line is reviewed by two different people with different skincare needs, so hopefully almost anyone can pick up a few helpful tips for their own skin. We try to pick super relevant (read: you’ve probably heard about it), accessible and generally affordable skincare products to test out, so naturally, our first pick would be the ridiculously popular and crazy well-priced The Ordinary.  Continue reading “BASECAMP – the ordinary”

he’s mean because he likes you – and other things I won’t be telling my little sister

I’d like to note that I don’t recall my mum, my aunty or my nan ever saying these sorts of things to me growing up, but I definitely heard them over and over, from teachers, to family friends, to mums of friends, to just “older girls”. I’d like to think I never took it to heart, but it’s hard to say I was never influenced at all by them. It wasn’t until I was a little older that it even occurred to me that I, Emily, could be good enough at math to be an engineer, or that I could find mechanics interesting.

These are gross and ridiculous things to say, and gross and ridiculous things to hear, but if you have lady parts, chances are you’ve heard them before. They seem to be going away at a much slower rate than I would like (not really surprising, considering the sort of 2017 women have had), so it’s something that I want to make sure my little sister can combat as she grows up. That’s all. Chuck me your thoughts in case there’s any particular phrases I’ve missed. Continue reading “he’s mean because he likes you – and other things I won’t be telling my little sister”

girls girls girls – volume 2

volume 2 – Mel Lamacraft – fashion, lifestyle and beauty blogger, designer

girls girls girls is an ongoing interview series, where I get my favourite female creatives, currently doing their thing, to answer the same overly simple twelve questions. Bloggers, writers, artists, photographers, performance makers, musicians – the aim is to get a diverse collection of all levels of experience and field, and show off a little of their work at the same time.
