Friday, 17 November 2017
blogger cup

There's something about supporting fellow bloggers that I think should be done by everyone, whether there blog is just a personal hobby or if they have been lucky enough to do it as there full time job and make an income from it. There are even some bloggers who are talented enough to be able to make stuff to then sell as part of there income, these are the bloggers I'm talking about not the overpriced merchandise/advent calender ones.

Home Bargains: Skincare Haul

Wednesday, 15 November 2017
T-Zone Charcoal Skincare

Every few months or so I tend to notice that I have to change up my skincare products that I am using, I'm not sure if it's just the fact that my skin gets so used to a product that it just stops working or if it's all to do with the change in the weather.

November Glossybox
November Glossybox
Another month equals another monthly Glossybox treat arriving at my front door, all ready for me to open up and have a good look at what product's I received for this particular month. Although I was a bit disappointed with this month's box, I am still going to stay subscribed as it's the only box that I haven't liked as all the others have been brilliant. Hopefully the contents of this box is just a small build up to how good December's box will be *keeping my fingers crossed that's why anyway*.

November Goals
November Goals

This month there is so much that I want to get done, that I decided if I made a "November Goals" blog post then I need to get it done because it's written down haha. I have also been lacking so much motivation this past week or so, that I need to sort myself out!

So here are my 6 goals for this month:

Seoul Fashion Weeks Vibes

Monday, 30 October 2017

After the splash of vibrant outfits that came out of the European and the US fashion shows, it’s hard to imagine the level of ingenuity it would take for a city to bring something new and fresh to the table. And yet, Seoul has at least a few pzazz-rich trends that will rock your world, and several other bold ideas perfect for the upcoming season. Let’s see just how this South Korea’s fashion capital has reinvented the meaning of fabulous!

Personalised iPhone Case

Thursday, 26 October 2017
personalised iPhone case

I have been on the lookout for a personalised iPhone case for a while now, but could never find one that I liked the look of or one that wasn't too over the top in colours. I guess I was just looking in all the wrong places e.g eBay, until now when I had a look on Etsy!

I'm a bit late this month with my usual monthly Glossybox post, this month just seems to be flying by like anything....please slow down 2017! This month though we are back to the classic pink box with black writing, I loved everything that was in my box this month even if I have shared some of the stuff with my sister.

Keeping It Simple

Wednesday, 20 September 2017
Just lately I have really been loving wearing simple necklaces and also layered necklaces, I have never really been a "chunky necklace" kind of person my necklaces have to be kept simple with just one small pendant on if it's just one necklace, or if it's a layered necklace then the chains all have to be the thin kind.

Firstly I will show you the 2 necklaces that I have been wearing all the time just lately, alternating them to style whatever outfit I'm wearing that day. I will then share with you a couple of necklaces that I'm loving the look of over on Lyst.co.uk and hoping to purchase some time soon.

How I Edit My Instagram Pictures!

Saturday, 9 September 2017
Instagram Edit
I have really been trying hard to work on my Instagram just lately, and trying to grow my audience on there aswell. I first decided on how I wanted my Instagram account to look and also got some inspiration from a few of my favourite accounts, and decided I wanted a clean white theme for mine and started going about this by slowing upping my photography game and what I actually posted on there.

From Summer Trends To Signature Look

One of the best things about fashion is how immersed you can get in the world of colours, textures and fabrics. There's nothing like walking down the street, dressed to the nines, and knowing you're drawing everyone's attention because you look amazing. Following trends is fun, it's a way to learn even more about fashion, a way to take care of your appearance. However, trendy things are hardly going to be unique, so you're left with a bit of an issue - what to wear if you want to be in vogue, but still stand out? Well, to help you out, we've taken some of this summer's most prominent trends and put a little twist on it.

Hello Summer Glossybox

Wednesday, 2 August 2017
July Glossybox
I recently decided to give glossybox another try, as I've heard that it has got quite a lot better since I was last subscribed to it. I think I also unsubscribed last time aswell due to us moving and having to save every penny where we could. I'm so glad I decided to subscribe again as apart from 1 item, I loved most of the products in the July Glossybox.

Sharing My Face Mask Stash!

Thursday, 27 July 2017
Face Masks

Every now and then I love to give myself a bit of pampering by doing a nice face mask and just chill out in front of the TV whilst catching up on some of the programmes that I have got recorded on my Sky+ box in the bedroom.

I didn't realise though just how many face masks I had until I had a good clear out of my whole bedroom yesterday. I have 8 different face mask or 9 even if you include that one that always stays in the bathroom what is currently being used.

NOTW: Nail Of The Week

Thursday, 6 July 2017
Tanya Burr - Mini Marshmallows

First up let me just say that I am totally in love with this nail colour at the moment!
I own quite a few of the nail polishes by Tanya Burr, but most of them are in the old packaging style.

But this is by far my favourite that I recently picked up, and the fact that it only cost me 50p when I got to the till was even better. It was priced up at £2.50 on the shelves, but went through at 50p when the lady scanned it which was a bonus and a £2.00 saving for me.

The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Fashion Influencer

Tuesday, 6 June 2017

The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Fashion Influencer

In case you haven’t noticed (but you probably have if you’ve been following fashion at all) is that for a while now we’ve been going through a very fresh, innovative fashion haze. Namely, while various brands still dominate the fashion scene and somewhat dictate the foundation of all-things-fashion, they’re no longer blindly followed in their core form nor they are copied as much. The off-the-runway look is to be seen on Red Carpets, Met Galas and other celebrity events but – when it comes to behind-the-camera people (yes, us), things are entering a very exciting, experimental zone with a lot of unusual takes to what’s considered a trend.

Manchester Sadness

Monday Moments #4

Monday Moments #4

I can't believe that this is only the 4th post Ive done in my Monday Moments blog post series, I think it's mainly because not that much changes every time I come round to doing these posts.

I've changed it up a bit in this month's post, I've changed the "Looking Forward To" to "Thing's I've Been Doing" and also the "Blog's I've Been Loving At The Moment" to "Youtubers I'm Currently Watching" aswell as "On My Wishlist" to "Recently Purchased"

Currently Burning....Or Not!

Saturday, 13 May 2017
Bomb Cosmetics - Baby Powder

So I thought I would share with you 2 of the recent books I purchased which I will be starting to read within the next week, and also what they are all about!

As you have probably already guessed by the title of this blog post.....I failed my theory test, by 3 points!

iPhone Photo Diary

The bridesmaid sash and wine decoration was given to me on the actual hen do and the bouquet, necklace, name card and little chocolates were all from the actual wedding. I took a photo of it all like this so I could print it out and put it up on my memory board in the bedroom, as obviously I couldn't hang all that up on my wall separately haha

Products I Regret Buying

I've had so much going on lately, that I've barely had anytime to sit down and do a blog post let alone take any pictures for the posts. But today I'm managing to get a post written....and hopefully a few scheduled whilst I'm at the iMac!

Until recently I can honestly say I had never tried a primer before until I purchased this one a few weeks ago.....I  bet your shocked right?!  I just never felt the need for one, or really understood why people used it. So I thought I would purchase one to try it out and see what all the fuss was about!

What You See vs What I See!

Sunday, 12 March 2017
When it comes to blogging and taking photographs to go with blog post's or to share on our instagram, we always like them to show everything clean and tidy......basically just Instagram worthy. Am I right?!

So for today's blog post I'm gonna brave it and show you exactly what I see compared to what you actually get to see. I'm doing this on a day where I have finally got rid of a 5 day headache and can finally function a bit and get some housework done.....and get this bedroom of mine sorted!

What I See vs What You See

So to start off with, I'm gonna show you 3 different area's of my room......my desk, my beauty area and then the bit where I take most of my Instagram photo's.

Introducing Naturelle Cosmetics*

Thursday, 2 March 2017
Naturelle Cosmetics

I was recently sent a product by Naturelle Cosmetics to review in exchange for an honest review on my blog, and seeing as I love trying out new face creams to see what does and doesn't work for my skin I was more than happy to do this!

I last done one of these post's back in October 2016 and have had that particular candle twice more since that blog post, if your interested in reading that blog post you can do so by clicking here.

Now that I'm finally burning a different candle scent, I thought it was time for another one of these blog posts. I've acquired quite a few candles since Christmas so I'm sure there will be a few more of these post's in the near future!

Simple - Deep Cleansing Face Mask

Friday, 17 February 2017
Just lately I've been getting quite a few breakouts on my nose and chin area, I think these are either just hormonal breakouts or due to stress related.....Damn you breakouts, making you feel even more crap than usual! So every now and then I like to use a face mask that I know won't be to harsh on my skin, as I do suffer with sensitive skin and the slightest thing can set the sensitivity off.
