Those of you that follow me on Twitter will know that I am in a happy, interracial relationship and have been for a while. I met my boyfriend in 2012 while we were both living in the same University accommodation in London and as soon as we met it was as though we had known each other for a lifetime. The story of how we got together is actually a really long one and I will probably write about it at some point as it is the classic ‘I fell in love with my best friend’ scenario, but all I…

It’s no secret that I am a bit of a lipstick addict but I have never really been a fan of matte as I was always really self-conscious thinking they make my lips look really chapped and dry.

Last week I went shopping in London and I had already decided weeks before that I wanted to treat myself to a new MAC lipstick and convinced myself I…
