Do you enjoy plants, but fear killing them? Or have – gasp – killed some and believe you have a black thumb? Then this is for you!
The past year has been an adventure with many different species of plants. Indoor gardening has quickly become my beloved hobby. When I met friends and people who appreciated plants, but were facing issues, I was thrilled to help. It has been a learning curve for me too. I hope this guide helps you.
Greenery is therapeutic. Slices of nature in the urban jungle bring warmth among cold concrete and steel. I’ve been fascinated with indoor gardening for the past year, plants simply add so much to a space. What better way to create your own slice of haven, than bringing house plants into your daily life?
Yet, we are not here to discuss the conventional benefits of plants. Are you experimental? Curious? A self-proclaimed mad scientist? Here are 3 reasons for you to flex those green thumbs!

4 Words: Love at first swipe! Creamy, velvety smooth and deliciously pigmented. I had always skipped over these unassuming Catrice Velvet Matt Eyeshadow pans in the drugstore. The one time I touched them… oh my. I knew I had to grab them to share.
Innisfree is a well-known South Korean skincare and makeup brand, known for their Jeju-inspired lines of natural, “green” products. Tree hugging goodness, anyone?
Cleansing foams tend to strip moisture from our skin. If you’ve ever experienced dry, flaky and tight skin after a foam cleanser, you know what I mean 😉 One solution? Cleansing creams.
Anyone else have a hard time finding good cleansing creams? After serious searching, I found this gem. The Innisfree Green barley Cleansing Cream has been my go-to everyday cleanser the past few months. I’m stoked to share this find!
The Face Shop is a popular South Korean brand known for their skincare and natural image. The Black Label Lipsticks are part of their permanent line. It’s affordable and oh so creamy, moisturising and beautiful.
MAC Casual Lip & Cheek Colour is a creamy, emollient blush and lip colour all in one. The shade For Your Amusement appears warmer coral pink in the pan, but is actually a cool-toned, pastel pink when swatched. It claims to be non-sticky, lightweight and dewy. Hmm, can a blush that feels like a gloss really do all that?
I’ve been dying to try Sleek’s palettes since they took the beauty realm by storm.
The Sleek Enchanted Forest palette is a new release, fairytale inspired – oh my! – and each colour is has a name I’m sure many of us can relate to. Inspired by fairytales and enchantment, it’s filled with mauves, dreamy blues and earthy tones. It features a good balance of light and dark shades, shimmers and mattes.
How does this pretty little thing perform? Let’s find out!
Picked up this Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara in Denmark. Its name is quite the mouthful. Is it just me, or is the Maybelline mascara selection here wider than usual? Hmmm. The quest for a holy grail mascara is on.
Let’s see how this baby fares!
(Spoiler alert: Absolutely amazing, hands down new holy grail (HG) mascara.)
