Preparing For Exam Season

Exam season is right around the corner which means it is time to grab your highlighters, notepads and textbooks and get revising. When it comes to revision, it is important to be organised. Look at when each exam is due to take place then create a revision timetable that priorities the subjects you will be tested on first. You can create a revision timetable online at:

By placing less enjoyable topics next to ones you find more interesting, you will find it easier to keep going. For example, an hour of maths revision might be more bearable if you have geography to look forward to after your break. 

Also think about where you are going to be revising, you will need plenty of light and space to spread out all of your resources. 

It is better to revise effectively for a few hours each day than to be buried in your books 24/7

DO Reward Yourself!
Allow yourself a treat after working hard or achieving a goal. Whether it is a relaxing night in with your favourite film or an afternoon out with your friends, give yourself time to relax.

DO NOT Leave Everything Until The Last Minute!
Not only is it unlikely to help you remember anything meaningful, it is almost guaranteed to stress you out right before your big day.

Upping My Brow Game

Brows are very important and they can either make or break a face. I have spent quite some time trying to find the right products for them. After receiving a Debenhams gift voucher for Christmas, I decided to treat myself to the Benefit Brow Zings Kit

£24.50 (4.35g)

The kit contains:
  • Pigmented wax for shaping
  • Natural-shaded powder for setting
  • Discreet tweezers
  • Hard angle brush
  • Blending brush
  • Mirror
  • Complete lesson
All the tools you need for clean, smooth and perfect brows.

How to use:
Dip the angled brush in the soft pigmented wax with smooth, angled strokes shape & define your brows. Use the blending brush to apply your setting powder. This powder fills in sparse areas and locks brows in place. Altogether this takes a maximum of two minutes!

If you are on a tighter budget and cannot justify the price of Brow Zings, the Sleek Brow Kit is the next-best thing. This kit comes with everything that you would get in the Benefit kit but for a fraction of the price.

What are your favourite brow products?
