Matchy-Matchy // Autumn Lips + Nails

BEAUTY

I've always been the sort of person that loves matching their nail varnish choice to other details in an outfit or make-up look and recently I've found the perfect Autumn combo that I've been wearing pretty non-stop recently, so I thought I'd share it with you!

Autumn + Halloween Home Touches //

LIFESTYLE

Ok, so I'm kind've into decorating my house with seasonal touches, not gonna lie - I bloody lavv it. I'm pretty sure I did blog posts on all my Christmas and Easter decorations, and now that Autumn's rolled around, I'm excited to show you my Halloween picks!

Skincare Newbies // The Ordinary

BEAUTY

I've been meaning to try out some products from The Ordinary for such a long time, and around a month ago, I finally got round to placing an order on their website ~ I was pretty excited, let me tell you! They've only been around for just over a year, and in that time they've had A LOTT of positive press, mainly because they use such amazing, high quality ingredients in their products, but at a much more budget friendly price point.

A Hallway Re-Vamp //

LIFESTYLE

The little space under our stairs had been bugging me for ageees ~ the succulent I'd planted had died, I'd taken a print out of it's frame so that I could use the white border for something else and it had become a bit of a dumping ground for keys // coins // bit's of paper... basically it needed a re-vamp quick time. The only thing holding it somewhat together was my Swoon Editions cupboard, which I'm still so happy with!

An Autumn Outfit // Zara + Oasis

LIFESTYLE

Although I love dressing for summer weather with all the cute sandals, tee's + shorts, sometimes there's just nothing better than getting wrapped up in jumpers, boots + coats when Autumn rolls back around! There's always so many great options to choose from on the high street, so I thought I'd put together a post on some of the thing's I've been wearing pretty much non-stop the past few weeks.

Lush Halloween Picks //

BEAUTY

I've always loved Lush Halloween products, especially as they get released just when you start fancying having a warm bubble bath as the weather starts to get colder! This year is no different and I just had to treat myself to a few pieces, even if our bathroom is the least relaxing place to be at the moment as were in the process of getting it re-done!

3INA Beauty Bits //

BEAUTY

I've written a post on my love for pretty much everything I've tried from 3INA before here (their highlighter has become an every day staple of mine), so I was excited when I got sent a new package of goodies to try out with some of their recent product launches inside!

Visiting Baddesley Clinton // National Trust

PLACES

I feel like I've had the busiest couple of weeks, trying to organise my life and see friends & family, but sometimes it's nice just to have some time out and get back to nature a little bit. Dan and I have recently decided to become members of the National Trust (I know, I feel very grown up!) so whilst the weather was actually sunny for once, we thought we'd go exploring...





1 October 2017

Worth The Hype? // Fenty Beauty

BEAUTY

Ok, I admit it, I got well and truly sucked in to buying a couple of products from the newly launched Fenty Beauty, Rihanna's make-up range ~ it all just looks so beautiful! ~ and I've been testing them both out over the last few days so I thought I'd add my thoughts into the sea of reviews out there already...

Looking Forward To... // Autumn Edition

LIFESTYLE

It's been ridiculously rainy these past few weeks in the UK and I've been feeling like all I want to do is hibernate and get cosy. Autumn is probably my favourite season and I'm excited to see the leaves change colour and to get all my warm jumpers out!

Discovering Missguided //

LIFESTYLE

Ok, so it's not like I'd never heard of the brand 'Missguided' before, it's just that I don't do too much online clothes shopping, and I'd never really even contemplated buying anything from them before now. I have to say I was so pleasantly surprised by their service and products (I don't know why I thought I wouldn't be ha!) that I thought I'd do a little blog post.

8 September 2017

Bathroom Bit's & Bobs //

LIFESTYLE

I can't quite believe we've been putting off getting our bathroom done for over a year now! When we first moved in to our house we sort've prioritised all the other rooms with a hell of a lot of wallpaper stripping, painting and sanding going on, plus we pretty much spent the remainder of our money getting the kitchen done - ha! Fast forward a wee while and we've settled in and just lived with the bathroom, even if it has started to slowly break down on us (the toilet requires a fair bit of vigorous pumping in order to flush!). The end is finally in sight and we've started ordering everything ready for it to be fitted and of course I've been ordering all the accessories which I just had to show you!

Organising My Childhood Photo's //

LIFESTYLE

This has been the longest and most time consuming thing, but it's something I've been wanting to do for sooo long as I'm such a sentimental person, but at the same time I wanted everything to be organised and backed up too. I thought I'd write down my storage solutions and how I went about organising a hell of a lot of photo's, as well as my ideas for getting my faves framed and out for people to look at!


15 August 2017

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.


11 August 2017

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.

6 August 2017

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!




30 July 2017

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!



25 July 2017

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!


20 July 2017

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!).


27 June 2017

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...


16 June 2017

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...



14 May 2017

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.


9 May 2017

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!



14 April 2017

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!


7 April 2017

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!
