Let’s talk about: Hozier

So I’m a little bit behind in my musical taste. I used to get most of my music from internet friends being like: “Hey Lorna, check out dese cool as ice tunes, yo.” Or something like that. Since, for the first time in my adult life I have more face-to-face friends than internet friends…that doesn’t really happen anymore. So when I do discover new music I like, I get pretty excited.

Trigger Warnings: Discussion of upsetting topics in a not too heavy way, themes of music, including sex, darker relationships, religion and the church.

Lorna Loves: ‘I*Light Organic Advanced Brightening & Line Smoothing Eye Treatment’ by Sweetsations Therapy.

As a product tester I occasionally receive products at a discount in exchange for an impartial, unbiased review. Mostly, these don’t require me to post to my blog and that’s how I like it. Occasionally I will take on one that requires a post here, but it always leaves me a little nervous.

What if I don’t like it? Well, nervous or no, I consider it a point of pride to be totally honest when testing and reviewing a product. So the good news is, with me, you know what you’re getting.

15 Cat Themed products you need in your life

Cat themed items Loquacious Lorna
As the owner of three cats, I don’t consider myself a cat person. I’ve always been an animal person. In fact, I used to be afraid of cats for quite a while after my grandmother’s cat bit me. My theory is that people who love animals can generally have great affection for any type of animal, they just need to learn how to be around them. In my case, with the notable exception of insects and arachnids. I have a massive phobia of those, I’m totally aware of how stupid it is, but it persists. Yes, even butterflies.

I digress; I love animals. Cats and dogs and many more. For some reason, though, cat printed stuff is always so much more adorable than stuff with doggy designs.

Lorna Loves – Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid lipstick by theBalm cosmetics.

Meet Matt(e) Hughes
Matt Hughes likes milkshakes and pretty shades of pink.

  Now at this point you probably have some questions, like who exactly is Matt Hughes and why is this lipstick named after him or why is this strange lady telling me about this stuff? Well if you’re on my blog I can presume you already know the answer to question two, but just for kicks and giggles, here it is. Lorna Loves is going to be an ongoing segment for me to rant about products that I adore. They must be rated four or five Lornas to qualify. Every review and article featured on my website will be my own, honest, unforced opinion and if the product was sent to me for free in exchange for a review I will always mention it in the article. Furthermore, I’ll never mislead you, even if I was given a complimentary product, all opinions are my own and will remain so; ain’t nobody got time to be a corporate puppet, foo’.

Pro Tip: If you prefer to skip straight to the rating and a handy list of pros and cons of the product, go to the bottom of the article!
