The 'Worth It' High End Beauty Bits

Dipping your toes into the world of high end beauty can be incredibly exciting but also a bit daunting. When you're spending a large chunk of money on one piece of make up you want to be sure it's going to be worth it. Over the years, I've found that some high-end bits aren't always any better than cheaper high street offerings, however, some of them really are worth shelling out your hard earned pennies for...

10 Ways To Utilise Twitter For Blogging

Twitter is probably my favourite social media site, when it comes to blogging, as it's a site I've used for years and a great chunk of my traffic comes from there. I wish I was one of those bloggers who was really good with Instagram or Pinterest but, unfortunately, perfectly positioned, pretty photos just aren't my forte. Twitter, however, is much more up my street. So here are just a few ways I utilise Twitter for my blog that hopefully might help you too...

15 Things I've Learned Since Graduating

Graduation season will soon be upon us and I seriously cannot believe it's been a year since I finished university and just under a year since I donned the black gown and hat myself! With this in mind, I thought I'd do a little list of the things I've learnt since graduating...

12 Things Pretty Little Liars Taught Us

So there's no denying I'm literally obsessed with Pretty Little Liars since I decided to binge watch the first five series just before the latest season came out this month. Wednesdays are now made worthwhile thanks to PLL. Whilst scouring the internet for theories (like you do), I came across a fair few gifs and thought I'd compile a little list of all the things the liars have taught us...

On Feeling Down About Blogging

Warning: long, rambling post ahead. I don't really know where I'm going with this but I'm having one of those meh moments about my blog at the moment so thought I'd just let it all out on here for all you lovely people to read...

Holiday Memories

I love holidays and days out. Whether it's flying somewhere sunny for a few weeks or just spending the day somewhere in the UK - it's just great to get away from the routine of everyday life every now and again and spend time with your nearest and dearest. So when asked me to share some of my favourite holiday memories with my loved ones, how could I say no?

DIY Healthy Berry Yoghurt Frappucino

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't you totally should here, ahem) then you'll know I have a slight obsession with Starbucks. The red berry yoghurt frappucino is my latest love but I realised I could probably make something similar at home that's half the calories and far cheaper...

Keeping Long Hair Knot Free

I love having long hair and I'm unsure if I'll ever get the chop (maybe when I'm like 60 and opt for a perm - if they're still cool in 2050 obvs.) However, one of the biggest downsides to having long locks is, without a doubt, knots. I can't imagine the amount of hair I've lost due to those huge tangles that result in a massive chunk of hair having to leave my head *sob*. So here's a couple of ways I try and keep my hair knot-free...

Things You'll Only Understand If You're A Blogger

Since starting blogging back in December, I feel like it's kinda changed aspects of my life in a way (as lame as that sounds.) Eg. before I started blogging, if I woke up and it was really sunny, I would just think "oh it's sunny" whereas, now, I'm like "OHMYGOD NATURAL LIGHTING - time to take blog photos." So I thought I'd compile a little list of all those things that only us blogger types will understand (either that or it's just me that's turned into a crazy perfectionist who is obsessed with white surfaces, coffee and MAC lipsticks...)

9 Ways To Pick Yourself Up When You're Feeling Down

It's Tuesday and, for most of us, that means THREE whole more days to get through after today until the weekend (soz for the reminder there, guys.) So that means that being positive and upbeat is sometimes a tad hard. Here's a few ways to pick yourself up if you find yourself feeling a bit down...

St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Tanning Lotion Review

I think every man and his dog has been after this badboy since it's release a couple of weeks ago and I don't blame them. Self tan - in the shower? It's genius. Here's what I thought of the latest St Tropez product to hit the market...

How To Get Motivated When You CBA

I feel like people don't say CBA (as in 'can't be arsed' - yes I'm guna be that patronising bitch that tells you what it means cos y'know SOMEONE might not know) as much anymore and I don't know why because, personally, I love it. It's such a short but sweet response to sum up exactly how I feel 90% of the time. So how do you snap out of lazy, CBA mode when you need to get motivated and get shit done?

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum Review

A couple of weeks ago, after a pretty crappy week of having no hot water, I was super happy when I came home to find the most gorgeous parcel on my doorstep from the French fragrance brand, Roger & Gallet. It was all to celebrate the release of their exclusive new scent, Fleur de Figuier. Admittedly, I'd never even heard of this brand before so was unsure if I'd be wowed by it or not, but, I was definitely proved wrong...
