The Vixen Thinks: Why I Filter My Online Life


Earlier this year, I wrote a post on whether people are obligated to use their platform or not. While I was writing it, I kept find myself wandering off track and speaking about why I personally don't speak about certain things on social media. Eventually, I realised I was going to have to write an entire post about why I filter my online life to highlight the good.

NYX Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour [Product Review]


For a beauty blogger, I was surprisingly late to the brows party and it was only a few years ago that I actually started doing anything to them other than getting them waxed every now and again. However, now that I've started experimenting with different types of brow products, the thought of not filling my eyebrows fills me with horror!

I'd seen a few beauty bloggers using the NYX Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour pencil, which is a brow pencil and highlighting pencil in one. It looked pretty cool so I thought I'd give it a go.

When it comes to throw-on-and-go-easy-to-wear work outfits, I most definitely have a distinctive style. It's a sheer blouse (with vest top for modesty, of course) with either smart skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. Today's outfit post is a prime example of this.

Tapas and Wine at Giraffe World Kitchen in Reading


When I first made the decision to move away from Swindon, I had two places to choose from: Basingstoke or Reading. I was initially leaning towards Basingstoke as I was much more familiar with it and the buses to work run a lot more frequently, but the more time I spent in Reading, the more I realised it was the town for me. One of the things that drew me towards Reading was the number of restaurants available, particularly those on the Riverside. It's been a year and a few months since I moved to Reading now and I'm slowly but surely eating my way around the town; so, when an invite to go and try some tapas at Giraffe World Kitchen popped into my inbox, I just couldn't say no!

What I Watched in July


Although I seem to be reading very slowly at the moment, the amount of TV I watch seems to be increasing massively. A lot of weekly shows I was watching ended in July - some more satisfactorily than others, but I also managed to binge a few new series too.
