My foolproof technique for long, fluffy, separated lashes

I recently posted a video on my YouTube channel that shows how I create my signature long fluffy separated lashes. I’ve been wearing mascara for as long as I can remember but it was probably around the age of 14 that I actually started using it because I seem to remember my mum saying once…… Continue reading My foolproof technique for long, fluffy, separated lashes

Product review: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Clinique was one of the first brands I established a full skincare regime with (having only used Clean and Clear beforehand; I was just in my teens) and it wasn’t long before I discovered their Moisture Surge moisturiser, which I absolutely fell in love with.

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.

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
