Review: Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet&Dry cordless epilator

I’ve been a loyal waxer for a fair few years now (11 years exactly) and I certainly wouldn’t go back to shaving again, ever (the Italian blood in me means I’m cursed with dark, dense regrowth if I do).  But there comes a time every year (around June to August to be precise) where I…… Continue reading Review: Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet&Dry cordless epilator

How I now have time for all the things I never had time for…

I live what feels like a hamster wheel life: I’m rushing all the time, to get to places, to get things done and yet I have a consistent list in my head of things I should get done or I would like to do but they never happen.  How can this be, when I’m constantly living at 100mph?! …… Continue reading How I now have time for all the things I never had time for…

My evening skincare routine

I recently uploaded a video to my YouTube channel about my evening skincare routine, sharing with you the products I use, how I use them, what I think of them and also the skin concerns I’m currently experiencing, why and how I’m treating them.

It’s only been 6 months?! It feels like so much longer! But that’s not a bad thing… I think I feel like that because blogging and filming videos for my Youtube channel feels so natural, it’s like what I should’ve been doing for so much longer than I actually have..

Oh Friday, thank god you’re here, I’ve missed you…

Things have been a little quiet on the Lady Eversmith front this last couple weeks. My much anticipated return to work has come and I’ve taken some time out of blogging and vlogging to adjust to things, find my new groove and get used to our new routine. I’ve been back to working full time…… Continue reading Oh Friday, thank god you’re here, I’ve missed you…

The reality of blogging and vlogging

As I sit here writing this, I’m actually trying to catch up on a recent episode of ‘The Secret Life of Dogs’ (whilst enjoying a far-too-large glass of Baileys) but I’m not really watching it. My husband’s out at a gig, the girls are asleep and during this precious alone time it’s all too tempting…… Continue reading The reality of blogging and vlogging
