New Years Eve Nails: Cocoa With A Little Sparkle



If any night calls for a touch of sparkle then it's New Years Eve. Despite not actually going out tomorrow night, it would be rude not to give my nails a little TLC and I'm sure many of you will be getting glammed up for the occasion and might want a little bit of nail inspo...

Most Used Make Up Of 2014

Make Up Favourites 2014

As we're nearly at the end of 2014, I feel like it's almost obligatory to do a round up of my favourite beauty products of the year. I've decided to separate make up and skincare as there's just too much to talk about in one post. For this post, I've focused on my most used make up of the year and have somehow managed to narrow it down to 10 products - which certainly wasn't easy! Here's what made the cut...

Switching Off From Social Media On Christmas Day

Christmas Day seems to be the one day a year when people are happy to turn off their laptops and put down their phones to entertain themselves in more traditional ways - by pulling out dusty board games, having a go at Charades or challenging each other with a round of Trivial Pursuit. I don't know about you but I find it quite refreshing to just switch off from my surroundings and properly relax - even if it only happens once a year.

Recipe: Festive Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

It's been ages since I last did some baking so I decided to spend my Sunday, in the kitchen, whipping up some festive treats. For some reason I always associate Terry's Chocolate Orange's with Christmas and I seriously can't get enough of them at the moment. So, I thought I'd continue my orange obsession further by adding them into some cupcakes. The result is some seriously tasty cakes that are full of flavour and super easy to make...

Homeware shopping is my favourite - I actually think I get more enthusiastic over buying a new candle than I do a lipstick! (saddo, I know.) Here are some affordable bits and pieces I picked up over the weekend - all coming in at less than £10 each...

Review: Illamasqua Eye Brow Cake



Without make up on, my eyebrows are extremely light. Blink and you'll miss 'em. So I would say an eyebrow product is definitely one piece of make up I couldn't live without. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect solution for my brows and think this offering from Illamasqua comes pretty close...

Recipe: Luscious Lemon Cake



As I've had a lot of time between finishing university and starting my new job, I've really got into baking. Lemon cake is one of my favourite desserts to make as it's so tasty yet so simple. As it was my step-grandad's birthday the other week, I decided to make a lemon birthday cake. I was really pleased with the end result so thought I would share with you all...
