Things To Remember When You're Having A Crap Day

Okay, so we all have those seriously crappy days where everything seems to go wrong and we just feel like crawling into bed and never seeing the world again. But let's be honest, the longer we stay in these moods, the worse we will feel. Here's a few things to consider when it feels like everything is going to shit...

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Blusher & Concealer Brush Review

When it comes to make up brushes, I'm a bit of a novice. I probably use about 4 brushes each day and have used the same ones for a long time now (a mixture of Real Techniques, Eco Tools and my trusty Illamasqua eyebrow brush.) So when The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave me the chance to try out some of their brushes, I was more than willing to expand my collection. The packaging alone was enough to make me instantly fall in love and what was inside definitely didn't disappoint either....

The Beauty Sins I'm Guilty Of

As someone who used to work on a beauty counter and reads a huge amount of beauty blogs, I feel like I've had the do's and don'ts of a good beauty regime constantly drilled into me. However the lazy girl in me is still seriously guilty of committing many beauty sins that the likes of Caroline Hiron would shoot me for...

Although I've been lucky enough to go on a foreign holiday pretty much every year, I've never been someone who pays too much thought to travel. Recently, though, I've been itching to just hop on a plane and get exploring. I've become obsessed with travel blogs and have a sudden urge to actually see the world. Maybe I'm just getting old and having a quarter life crisis? Here are some of the places I'd love to tick off my travel bucket list...

Wishlist #4 / A River Island Affair

Now we're well and truly into Spring, a wardrobe update is defo on the cards which means a wishlist was way overdue. I wasn't actually planning on doing an all River Island one but, once I started browsing their website and kept stumbling across so many pieces I loved, I just couldn't resist. I've gone for a bit of a blue/white/grey theme here which, again, was unintentional but let's go with it...

Beauty Products That Last Ages

I, like many other bloggers, spend a small fortune on beauty products and I'm always trying to make them last longer or find dupes that are a bit cheaper to help save a bit of money. There are some products, though, that actually last a really long time and are well worth spending those hard-earned pennies on...

What To Do When Bloggers Block Strikes

Okay so I'm actually writing this post for my own benefit as I've got a serious case of bloggers block at the moment and just cannot think what to write about. So I'm going to write about not having anything to write about. Genius, huh? If anyone else is in the same boat then hopefully this post will help get your creative juices flowing again...

What To Do When You're Feeling A Bit Meh

After the long bank holiday weekend, I'm definitely feeling a bit... meh. That's the only way I can describe it. Not unhappy, upset or anything too extreme - just meh.  Mainly because it's actually sunny for once and I'm spending my days sat in a stuffy office *sob*. So I thought I'd compile a little list of things I do to help perk me up when I'm moping around feeling sorry for myself...

My Current Cheek Combo

When it comes to bath and shower goodies, I've always been a fan of Soap & Glory but it's only recently I've started to pay attention to their make-up range. I picked up Love at First Blush and the Solar Powder bronzer as part of a Boots 3 for 2 and I'm so glad I did. These two products form my current go-to cheek combo and I can't get enough of them...

Baking: Easter Cupcakes

If, like me, you've left it until the last minute to buy people Easter eggs, or you just want to treat yourself because, Easter - then I have the perfect thing for you. Cupcakes with buttercream frosting topped with mini eggs and/or malteaster bunnies. It doesn't get much better than this, people...

Why Blogs Don't Need To Be Perfect

There's no denying that bloggers have seriously upped their game, recently. Five or six years ago, most blogs were just a little page on the internet for people to have a bit of a rant, or post a few photos but, today, they are an actual career for many. Brands are vying to work with bloggers after realising the influence they can have and readers genuinely care what they have to say. This means that if you want your blog to be taken seriously, then there's definitely a certain level of attention and effort required. It's not a case of haphazardly taking a photo of a lipstick and telling the world you like it. People want more. But how much more is really needed?

Five Diet Changes/Additions That Have Actually Made A Difference

One of my new years resolutions was to eat healthier *shock* but we're only in April and I've already consumed more Domino's than I did in the entire of 2014, oops. However, there have been a few healthy changes/additions I've made to my diet that I've managed to stick with which I really believe have made a massive difference to my overall health...
