Don’t try this teeth whitening trick!

So I saw this picture on Twitter:


And I tried it. At first I thought it was a prank, but it’s pretty easy to do so what was the harm in giving it a go?

Well it’s no surprise it didn’t work. Not only that, it’s gross. And I like bananas. But when you rub the inside of a banana skin over your teeth for 2 minutes, you don’t get banana on your teeth, you get all the gross peel gunk you don’t eat all in your mouth. As soon as I’d finished I had to rinse my mouth out. And look at the before and after, you can’t even tell which is which!


(The top one is the before picture, and if anything my teeth look whiter before smearing banana on them)

It just goes to show, I’m a gullible fool and the Internet is a liar

A solid Patrick Bateman beauty tip

I love peel-off face masks because they’re fun to do and they’re good for my skin, but I always feel like Patrick Bateman whenever I take them off.

That aside, these are a couple of peel-off masks I love.


The first is the Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel-off mask. It retails most places for around £1 which is a bargain. The honey is antibacterial which is great for spots and I always feel like peel off masks target deeper inside your pores.


The second mask I love is Boots’ Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Peel-Off mask. It comes in a tube with multiple applications worth inside. The tea tree and witch hazel are also great for spots.

Both these masks are super sticky on application but once they dry they are so fun to peel off and on top of that they do your skin good. Peel away!


Video: A history of makeup

Buzzfeed made a video recreating various popular makeup looks from throughout history. It’s pretty enlightening.

It really makes you think about how beauty standards change with time. You can also check out the article I wrote about the subject a while ago here.

How to get a super volumous ponytail

This little trick with turn your ponytail from puny to Arianna Grande in moments. And it doesn’t involve any hairpieces.

Pull the top two thirds of your hair into a ponytail, leaving the bottom third of your hair loose.

Then brush that bottom section of hair up into a second ponytail just underneath the first. Don’t worry, the hair in the top ponytail will cover it.

What you’re left with is a super thick looking ponytail.


You’re welcome.
