    Origins In Bloom

    Origins In Bloom | Essential Twenty

    You’d think that living fairly close to Cambridge, and going there semi-regularly for work, I’d go to more events in the city. But I don’t! I know that Sally hosted an event at the Origins store in Cambridge at the back end of last year but I wasn’t able to go, but for her Spring event I blocked out a Saturday so that I could go. I’ve not tried a lot from Origins, but I’ve loved what I have tested so I was eager to learn more about the brand, as well as hanging out with some local bloggers.

    Eugenius, The Other Palace | Review (Closing Night)

    Eugenius, Closing Night | Essential Twenty

    I’m writing this far later than I had planned. I mean, I attended closing night over two weeks ago! But after a knockout run at The Other Palace, I had to discuss what I thought about the cult favourite Eugenius. This is one of the hottest new shows that the theatre community cannot stop talking about, and had an almost unheard of number of sold out shows during its 6 week run. Unfortunately I was busy for most of the run, but I made it to closing night after hearing weeks of raving from the theatre community, and I wanted to throw my thoughts into the ring.

And this girl right here was invited to the press launch earlier this week. I know!

    A Superdrug Skincare Haul (All Cruelty Free)

    In January 2018, I declared that I was going cruelty free with my beauty products. This means makeup, skincare, bodycare and haircare. I’ve had just one slip up so far, and that was due to poor packaging, but other than that I’ve been doing okay. There are a lot of products I don’t need to repurchase for quite some time (I have more mascara than any girl needs, and I have a few shampoos knocking about), but I’ve been having a skincare overhaul and wanted to try a few more CF bits and pieces. Lucky for me, all of Superdrug’s own brand products fall under the cruelty free label.

    Early 2018 Treats

    Early 2018 Treats | Essential Twenty

    Recently I found myself splurging and buying a few treats to myself – a belated valentine from me to me? It started as a blog prop splurge to help me up my photography game (it’s one of my goals for this year but I’ve been lacking the motivation; I hope this helps), but this included a few books that I could use in photos…and some makeup. Hey, this girl deserves a treat every now and again!
