Zoella Beauty // Jelly & Gelato

BEAUTY

Every time there's a new launch from Zoella beauty or lifestyle I kind've want to get everythanggg. My bank balance kind've doesn't agree with me though (sadly!) so I just got three products that I know I'm going to get the most use out of as a little treat.

Three New Lush Products //

BEAUTY

So it feels like forever since I've written a Lush post, which is quite wierd for me being the self-confessed lush junkie and all! They've recently brought out quite a few nw products including some intriguing jelly masks (whattt?!) and I couldn't resist getting a few things to test out.

Testing Out New Make-Up // 3INA

BEAUTY

As your regular beauty junkie I'm always on the hunt for new brands and products to fall in love with (not that my bank balance likes it very much!). Recently the lovely people over at 3INA (pronounced mee-nah) sent me a few of their products to try and I think I've fallen slightly in love!

A Picnic + Mini Golf In The Sun //

LIFESTYLE

Ok so this was quite a while now, but it was a really nice day so I thought I'd still write up a blog post to remember it by. I've always dreamt of having my own picnic basket to take out on a summers day and fill with goodies so when I saw the perfect one in Homesense complete with plates, cutlery and plastic wine glasses I couldn't resist!

Refreshing Summer Spirits //

FOOD

I can't quite fathom why I never used to like gin. I think it might be because I'd always tried it with tonic, which is definitely something I think I'll always hate, but honestly, having gin in a cocktail is the most refreshing, summery drink!

Exploring Greece // Rhodes Island

PLACES

*Warning - this is a ridiculously picture heavy post!* Dan and I recently went on holiday abroad for the first time in two years - to say we were a little excited would be an understatement! We've been to Spain and Turkey quite a few times and wanted to go somewhere we hadn't really been before, so Greece it was...

Holiday Essentials // Part 2: Beauty

BEAUTY

Sorry this post is up a little later than I planned - I'm sitting down to write multiple posts today, trying to get myself motivated! This is the second part of my holiday essentials posts where I'm gonna be talking all thing summer skin and haircare related...


11 July 2017

Holiday Essentials // Part 1: Make-Up

BEAUTY

I was actually planning on doing these posts before I went on holiday but I'm sorry to say I've been seriously slacking in the blog writing department (having two weeks off work and going to Greece can do that to you...), although at least now I can say which products I reached for the most whilst I was away! I'm gonna do a holiday post and tell you about my faveee parts of Rhodes too (I'm back on my blogging game haha!).

New Summer Pieces // Holiday Edit

LIFESTYLE

I can't believe I'm actually going on holiday today for the first time in two years - how exciting! We're off to Rhodes in Greece and I've been manically buying holiday bits and trying to get packed and organised. All of the summer sales are starting around about now and I've found quite a few bits that are perff for holidays (and all this good weather we've been having in the UK!).

Getting Back Into Art //

LIFESTYLE

When I was at school and college art was always by far my favourite subject and was something that didn't really feel like "school work" it was more of a creative, fun way to wind down and relaxxx. Then life sort've got in the way...

Testing Out Face Masks //

BEAUTY

First up, sorry for the little bit of a blog hiatus - I feel like I lost a bit of my blogging mojo for a while there, I've been super busy working, gardening and planning things for our bathroom and holiday - basically life got in the way! Anyways... I thought I'd share with you some face masks I've been loving recently and using to have a little bit of a pamper.


1 June 2017

Easy Beach Hair // Lee Stafford

BEAUTY

I've always loved Lee Stafford products - the smell has to be one of my faves scents (I need a perfume in this!) so I was really excited to try some of their new Sea Salt range, which I think is gonna be perff for my upcoming holiday and for summer in general! I've been testing them out for a little while now so I thought I'd share my thoughts in this post.


28 May 2017

Nails Inc // Rainbow Riot

BEAUTY

Nails Inc is one of my faveee brands for nail polishes - the bottles are always a nice big sturdy size and I love the brushes as they're really fat and can basically cover your whole nail in a couple of swipes!


26 May 2017

What's In My Bag //

LIFESTYLE

I did a post like this a while back (you can read it here) but as I'm such a bag fiend and the contents of my bag is pretty much ever-changing I though it was about time I did another post! I just got this absolutely gorgeee mini back-pack last week from New Look and I've had to condense the contents of my bag slightly to fit things in...


22 May 2017

Budget Buys // Barry M

BEAUTY

I think Barry M was one of the first make-up brands I ever tried, waaay back when I was first getting in to beauty and experimenting with make-up. Their nail polishes were definitely always a staple and they're always such good value! I recently purchased a couple of items I'd never tried before and I've been loving both...

Lush Oxford Street // Exclusives

BEAUTY

I went to London around a month ago and of course I had to make a stop off at the famous Lush Oxford street store - three whole storeys of Lush goodies! I got quite a few bits and bobs but I knew I had to get some of the exclusive products to try as they're a little harder to get hold of.

A Green Corner + A Peek At My Living Room //

LIFESTYLE

I've been having a bit of a spring clean and a spruce up today, moving a few things around and hanging my planters (finally!) and I realised I've never really blogged about my living room and what I've been doing to make it all come together.


1 May 2017

The Palette Of Dreams // Too Faced Sweet Peach

BEAUTY

I've seen soo many people raving about the Sweet Peach Palette and I finally decided to give in to temptation and get it! I'd never tried anything from Too Faced before but all of their peach range looks amazing and this palette looked like the perfect colour range for me.


25 April 2017

Denim Lovin //

LIFESTYLE

I don't know why but I've never been attracted to denim jackets before, I just felt like they didn't suit me, buttt this all changed in one day when I found one that was sooo perfect! Now that the weather's getting a bit warmer I'm all about the lighter denim and I sort've fell in love.


22 April 2017

Series You Need To Watch //

LIFESTYLE

I have to admit I'm definitely not one of life's thrill seekers and although I enjoy going out and having fun with friends there are some days when all I want to do is snuggle up on the sofa and get into a TV series. There are so many great things to watch, but it can be hard to know what to choose so I though I'd do a round up of some of my recent faves!


20 April 2017

Skincare Picks // Glossier

BEAUTY

I'm soo happy that I finally managed to get my hands on some Glossier products! Living in the UK means it's a little harder to get your hands on their products, but thanks to my fellow blogger Jasmine over at 'Jasmine Talks Beauty' and My Mall Box I'm finally getting to try out some of their gorgeous skincare!

Spring + Easter Home Touches //

LIFESTYLE

I've always loved Easter time but this is the first year we've had our own house for me to decorate with cute spring decorations (Dan is thrilled about this obvss). I've hunted round quite a few shops as well as making a couple of things myself and I'm really pleased with the results!


11 April 2017

Easter Goodies // Lush Picks

BEAUTY

I can't believe how quickly Easter has crept up on me - it's literally less than a week away! I love Easter time, it feels like spring has finally sprung and it's always a day of seeing family, eating good food and time to finally relaaaxxx. I'm definitely gonna be indulging in a lush bath on Easter morning - their themed collections are always so cute!

New Homeware // Anthropologie + H&M Home

LIFESTYLE

Even though I live pretty close to a big city, we still don't have an Anthropologie orrr H&M home store  - booo. Whilst we were in London I made the most of it and decided to splash out on a few things for our house - here's what I got!


4 April 2017

Exploring London //

PLACES

For my birthday, Dan managed to get us tickets to see Ed Sheeran at The Royal Albert Hall (I know right!) so we decided to make the most of it and book an overnight stay to get in some all important shopping and eating time whilst we were there!


31 March 2017

& Other Stories Purchases //

BEAUTY

I've started to buy a few nick-nacks to go in our bathroom when we eventually get it done and whilst we were in London I couldn't resist have a little look in & Other Stories - their bath & body section definitely caught my eye!


25 March 2017

The Perfect Pair // Embroidered Jeans

LIFESTYLE

I feel like I've been on the hunt for a good pair of embroidered jeans for the longest time and I've tried on sososo many. Nothing I found was ever quite what I wanted so I put the search out of my mind for a while, until I found the perfect pair completely unexpectedly!


24 March 2017

A Pamper Day Post //

BEAUTY

It feels like I've had a really busy week - I've been out doing something most nights and work has been pretty non-stop so having a day off today has felt much needed! I spent the morning cleaning and tidying and then I thought - you know what, I'm gonna have a relaxing bath and some much needed beauty related TLC.



17 March 2017

New Primark Homeware //

LIFESTYLE

I'm really loving Primark's homeware at the moment - it's super affordable and they have some really nice pieces which are great if you're on a budget or just like to change up your interiors a lot! I may have got a few other bits + bobs too because well, it's Primark and it's hard to resist!


16 March 2017

The Book Post // A Few Recommendations

LIFESTYLE

When it comes to books I don't tend to stick to one genre - I'll try almost anything! If you're stuck in a rut with reading or are just looking for something a little different to what you usually go for then one of these is bound to be up your street.


14 March 2017

Honey Sweet // Lush Mothers Day

BEAUTY

It feels like there are so many collections being released by Lush at this time of year! I've been trying to restrain myself because I'm going to the Oxford Street store in London quite soon and I know I'll go crazy there, but I just had to try these two from the Mothers Day collection.


10 March 2017

Healthy Dessert // Chia Pots

FOOD

I've seen sooo many pictures of chia bowls, puddings, pots - whatever you wanna call it, on social media, so I thought in the name of eating far too unhealthily lately, I would whip some up, in an effort to get my life together (let's face it though Domino's is always calling my name!). 


5 March 2017

Three To Try // Lush

BEAUTY

I feel like most of the time I get sidelined by all the amazing seasonal collection Lush comes out with and forget about some of the products they offer all year round. I wanted to try a few that I'd never used before and hadn't heard much hype around, and I wasn't dissapointed!


1 March 2017

Looking Forward To... // Spring Edition

LIFESTYLE

It's the 1st of March today and it's starting to properly feel like spring is just around the corner! Don't get me wrong, I like winter when it feels all Christmassy + cosy but January and the beginning of Feb just feel a lil cold and depressing dontcha think?


28 February 2017

Happy Pancake Day! //

FOOD

Now I know I could potentially cook up some pancakes whenever I feel like it, but there's just something about pancake day that gets me super excited. I usually make crepe style pancakes but today I decided to go for American style stacking pancakes and I'm soo glad I did!


22 February 2017

The Perfect Paella //

FOOD

Whenever I go to Spain the first meal I always want to eat is Paella - yummm. I never really thought I could make it easily myself, but when I saw a Schwartz Paella spice mix sachet I just had to give it a go!


18 February 2017

Barry M Lip Kit // Matte Me Up

BEAUTY

Remember how everyone went a little bit crazy when Kylie Jenner launched her lip kits?? Well it seems like a lot of high street brands are catching up with the trend and I just had to try out Barry M's new offering at a quarter of the price and without the delivery charges and wait time too!


15 February 2017

Love Is In The Air // Diptyque Rosamundi Candle

LIFESTYLE

I've always loved candles and the way they make a room feel super cosy and relaxing. There's always something soo luxurious about Diptyque's offerings - particularly their Valentines ones and this year is no different!


10 February 2017

A Bar Cart Tour //

LIFESTYLE

I've wanted a bar cart for as long as I can remember and now I can finally say I have one that's fully stocked and ready for some serious cocktail making! I've been collecting bits and bobs to put on it for a year or so - before we even moved out - and now it's all put together I though I'd share with youss. 


7 February 2017

Gift Ideas // Valentines Day

BEAUTY

So can you believe this is my 200th post?! That's mad considering I average one or two posts a week... Anyways, as it's only a week to go until Valentines Day, I thought I would share some beauty related gift ideas with you, so that you can either treat yo-self, orrr drop a load of not so subtle hints to your other half until they get you a little somethinnn.

Winter Walkin //

LIFESTYLE

Sometimes, even when the weather is completely crappy I really feel like I need to get out of the house and DO something, and I really fancied going for a good old muddy walk - is this a sign I'm getting old?


31 January 2017

An Office Update //

LIFESTYLE

We have a really tiny box room in our house that we didn't really know what to do with buttt it just about fits a desk in so we've made it into the smallest office space you ever did see! I'm planning on getting a different desk in here eventually and putting up some shelves but for the moment I've popped a few bits on the desk itself to make it look a little more homely.


27 January 2017

Lush Valentines // My Picks

BEAUTY

I always loved the Lush Valentines collections and this year is no different - take my money Lush! I went for some tried and tested favourites from last year plus one new bath bomb; what can I say I love all things pink and rose scented...


24 January 2017

A Cookery Book Haul //

LIFESTYLE

I used to pretty much never cook and I didn't have a clue where to begin; it just wasn't something I was ever interested in! Buttt, times are a changin and now that we have our own kitchen and I can buy whatever food I fancy I wanted to get into cooking and be a little healthier. I feel like cookery books are a great source of inspo when you don't know what to cook and I love and use every one in my little selection!


20 January 2017

Gold Leaf DIY // Terracotta Cactus Pots

LIFESTYLE

When we moved into our house I found a load of terracotta plant pots sitting un-used in the back garden and I remembered seeing some really pretty (and really expensive) ones in Anthropologie that were partially covered in gold-leaf. I thought to myself - I can sooo do that myself - and voila, quite a few months later and I finally got round to making them!


17 January 2017

Beauty Storage // Tips + Tricks

LIFESTYLE

I absolutely LOVEE seeing make-up all shiny and neatly stored, I'm a bit of an over-organiser anyway, but there's just something about beauty items in order that I can't get enough of! I recently got a new dressing table when we moved house, so of course I had to re-organise my beauty stash.


13 January 2017

A Kitchen Shelfie //

LIFESTYLE

I definitely had a vision of what I wanted these shelves to look like in my mind for a really long time, and although I had to put up with my mom nagging me that I should get wall cabinets I'm really glad I stuck to my guns! Open shelving seems to work really well in our small kitchen and I love all of our jars being out on display.


10 January 2017

Liverpool Lovin //

PLACES

This is such a well overdue post (oops!) but I'm currently lying in bed thinking about planning our next little get-away and I realised I never posted about this one - better late than never though right?!  I'd wanted to go to Liverpool for absolutely ageeees - so many people had told me what a great city it was and how much they loved it, and Dan and I were sooo ready for a little mini break after doing endless hours of DIY, so we did a little bit of a last minute booking back in September!


6 January 2017

The Body Shop // Camomile Cleansers

BEAUTY

I hadn't treated myself to any new skincare in a while but I was in the market for a new cleanser and remembered the Body Shop camomile range. At this time of year I feel like I'm wearing a lot of make-up and I need something that's going to get it all off without feeling like I have to scrub at my skin!


3 January 2017

New Year // New Nail Technique

BEAUTY

I've always seen 'negative space nails' and 'watercolour nails' on Pinterest and thought they looked really cool, but I've never given either a go! I feel like I've been neglecting doing my nails recently, but with the new year I've decided to get back into doing them.
