Is There Room For Feminism On A Beauty Blog?

Spoiler Alert: YES!! I don’t want to sound too BBC Women’s Hour here, but I absolutely think you can be interested in make-up and still be an active feminist. I’ve found the lack of blogs reflecting this duality surprising, considering feminism is BLOODY COOL these days and important to many stylish, attractive women: think Grace Dent, Caitlin Moran, Lauren Laverne, Gizzi Erskine, Lena Dunham, Josie Long, Bridget Christie, Tina Fey, […]

Top 10 Things In My Flat

I’ve had a lot of fun writing this post. Lately Chris and I have been thinking about moving flat, and even city, in the not-so-distant future, and so to go round taking photos of my favourite things and writing a post about them has been a nice and quite cathartic thing to do. I’ve lived in this flat for over five years now, with two different flatmates, then on my […]

The Boots 3 For 2 Make-Up Challenge: £5

With only £5 each to buy three products well, two, Jo and I were a bit stretched with this last part of the challenge, and admittedly it’s difficult to get overly excited about what we managed to come up with especially living near a fairly limited Boots make-up counter. As much as we are both fans of many cheaper brands stocked in Boots like Revlon, Rimmel and Bourjois, there were not two things […]

It’s been a bit quieter on somethinking this week because I’ve been working on a site redesign, which I’m really excited about. This will see a name change that reflects the nature of the blog better but I’ll keep it a surprise for now and a move to, which will take place in the next few days. It’s not all schtum round here ’til then though: there will be a new skincare post up tomorrow.

Once the changeover happens, email subscribers will be transferred over to the new site I hope you’ll continue to follow!, and the somethinking URL will be redirected to the new blog. All current content will be transferred over too, and the subject matter will stay the same, but I will have much more freedom around how the site can look and what I can do with it. Now I’ve found my feet with what this blog will cover I think a bit of rebranding will give the site more of an identity. I so hope you like it when it comes!
