Although I really like make up, I wear less and less of it and always like to keep it as quick and simple as possible. The step that I rarely skip is eyeliner, as my eyes are brown, the same colour as my hair, and not huge, so they always need a little bit of help with definition. I used to be a fan of black liquid liner and wear it most days, even if it was a very thin line, but I had fallen out of love with it. Quite often it would fade throughout he day, or transfer onto my eyelids and even cheeks, so there is no wonder that I had stopped.
Last month I spent a day with a friend who always wears the perfect black feline flick and it lasts all day, so as we were having dinner I had to ask her what was the secret behind it. Her answer was that for hers to last it had to be liquid and have a brush applicator. She told me her favourites were by Rimmel and a Dutch budget brand called Hema, so given that we were in Amsterdam, the next day I rushed to the nearest Hema to look for it!

If you have been reading for a while you may know that I love yoga. Last year I wrote a post about all the reasons why I love it so much that you can check out if you didn’t read it at the time. If I had to say in a few words what it has done for me, I would say it has made me more curious and less fearful of outcomes.
If I could afford it, I would go to a yoga class every day of the week. For me the experience is very different to practicing at home. I had a few hits and misses but I have found two teachers who I really love and who I find very inspiring, and I really don’t think you can beat that human connection.
However, I can’t go to class every day, and have also found two yoga teachers online who are very different but who have helped me to develop a home practice over the past 6 months.
