Afternoon Tea At Cutter & Squidge, Soho

Afternoon Tea At Cutter & Squidge

I haven’t been feeling myself, of late. I seem to be constantly a little bit unwell. Not unwell enough for it to actually impact my life in any great way, but enough for me to just feel constantly down and tired and just a tad off. In light of this, and a little thing called my birthday, Ollie and I decided we needed a proper afternoon tea. We chose Cutter & Squidge, on Brewer Street, Soho. These Soho bakery places…

Sometimes (most of the time) I really don’t understand instagram. I don’t understand it at all. I don’t understand how some can be so successful, and others not so much, for pretty much zero reason.

Maybelline’s Blushed Nudes Palette

Maybelline's Blushed Nudes Palette

Okay, okay, I can’t stop buying makeup that I just don’t need. I have the dictionary definition of hooded eyes, and any eyeshadow that I do manage to attach to my tiny eyelids instantly gets swallowed up only to be seen when I close my eyes fully. There is literally no point in me wearing eyeshadow. And yet, here we are. Time to talk about the Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette. I’ll be honest, I’ve been eyeing this one up for…
