My “easy” sustainable changes to make || MagpieMagpie Evolves


Hi Lovelies, long time no blog. I’ll have a Life Update post up soonish, but for today I’m keen to chat about My “easy” sustainable changes to make. I’ve been doing lots of reading, listening to lots of audiobooks, watching lots of documentaries and I’m slowly making changes. I’ve decided to do a little series called MagpieMagpie Evolves. I hope to inspire, but also to hold myself accountable and to track my progress.

That’s why I’ve written this post. My “easy” sustainable changes to make. Continue Reading

Elf Flawless Finish Foundation || MagpieMagpie Blog


Hi Lovelies. How are we all? I’ve been doing a lot of baking content on the blog as of late, but this weeks it’s all about the Elf Flawless Finish Foundation. Superdrug is relatively new to the Island, it opened last year and of course over that time I’ve bought quite a bit. After my roaccutane journey I’ve been keen to try out lots of new options. I’ve started the search in the more affordable realm, but I’ll defiantly be trying out some luxes ones too.

Lemon Drizzle Loaf || MagpieMagpie Bakes


Hi Lovelies. I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I have another baking post for you, Lemon Drizzle Loaf to be exact. I love baking and even thought, yes I’m doing all this baking because I’m stuck in this situation, I want to bake more going forward so let the new routine begin.

I bake Simple Bread every week and I don’t see why I can’t bake more. So going forward I’ll be sharing simple recipes, with a few ingredients and simple instructions. Odlums is my go to for recipes, this Lemon Drizzle Cake recipe is from them and their website is super easy to use, so if you are looking for inspiration I’d recommend checking it out!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizz || MagpieMagpie Blog


Hi Lovelies. Hope we are all well and that you’ve been enjoying 2020 so far. Not sure I’m loud and proud about my love for brows but, who doesn’t love a good strong brow, so let’s talk brows, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizz. While I was on roaccutane, I just fell out of love with getting them done. That being said, I’d highly recommend getting your eyebrows threaded (or waxed if you like) and tinted. This takes a lot of the hard work out.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade in Medium Brown was my go to, at the time I was wearing a full, heavy, face of makeup, but now that I’m wearing a softer look the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizz is my go to. I tend to get mine from FeelUnique. They have a great selection of shades, mine is Medium Brown, but it’s always out of stock.

Stocking Filler Under £20 || MagpieMagpie Blog


Hi Lovelies. Christmas is in full swing so it’s time for my Stocking Filler Ideas Posts. I’ve done something a little bit different this time around, and I’ve selected some retailers and got a bit of a selection from each. This post features ASOS, Boots, Dunnes and a couple of extras.

ASOS Stocking Filler Ideas

I’m always keen on a few jeweller bits in the stocking, this necklace and ring, both in a gold colour are a great little surprise in the stocking. “Hair jewellery” seems to be getting bigger and bigger each year, so these clips are sure to wow. We are all trying to create less waste, so I thought a Keep Cup would be a great gift idea this year. And sure it wouldn’t be a MagpieMagpie blog post if it didn’t include some make-up. The Mac Duo Pack, Too Faced Lipstick and liner would be perfect stocking fillers.
