BEAUTY: MY BEAUTY STORAGE

BEAUTY: MY MAKEUP STORAGE

I was inspired to get my act together and sort my makeup collection out when I saw this post. Oh, isn't it dreamy! So yes, what you're seeing in this post looks very similar to Kate's set up, albeit not as perfectly polished, but can you blame me really?!

BEAUTY: MY FAVOURITE HIGHLIGHTERS


Some people love it, some people hate it but I am definitely on the love it side of the fence when it comes to highlighters. Having very dry and lack luster skin, I'm always on the look for products that are going to give me a subtle, yet radiant glow and so I thought I'd share with you my products of choice. Trust me I've done a lot of research in this area...

BEAUTY: SUMMER NAIL POLISH EDIT

BEAUTY: ESSIE SUMMER NAIL POLISH EDIT

Although I've found another nail polish brand to crush on in Smith and Cult, Essie will forever be my favourite! I don't know what it is about them that I love so much. Maybe it's the perfectly instagrammable bottles or the insane colour variety or even the perfect application every time brush. Either way this obsession is showing no signs of slowing down.

STYLE: MISS SELFRIDGE SMOCK TOP


I've been sat down trying to write this post for a good hour now and for some reason, the words just don't seem to be coming. Perhaps it's because I hadn't planned to have a 2 month blog break and I feel guilty for neglecting my little piece of the internet for so long (or it could be because Casino Royale is on the TV and I can't pass up an opportunity to watch a good old Bond film).

BEAUTY: 3 BUMBLE AND BUMBLE PRODUCTS YOU NEED TO TRY

3 BUMBLE AND BUMBLE HAIR PRODUCTS YOU NEED TO TRY

Whilst hair has never really been my forte, I do love a good old Bumble and Bumble purchase. I'm actually a bit of a saddo and I reserve all of my Boots points for a new Bumble and Bumble purchase (Surf Infusion I'm coming for you next!). But I'm actually yet to find a product from their range that I don't like to be honest! So with that in mind, I thought I'd pull together a list of my top three products that I think are worth the investment.

STYLE: NEW LOOK PINK BOMBER JACKET

How to wear a pink bomber jacket at disneyland

Well, this post is long overdue isn't it...I can't believe it's been a month since I went to Disneyland Paris! It's always pretty special when you go to any Disney park. I don't care how old you are, there's just something magical about the whole place, and the attention to detail at every stop is incredible which is what I've tried to capture in these photos. We were really lucky to have sunny weather which made wandering around that much more enjoyable, although I have to admit, I was a little bit disappointed by how many rides were closed! (Disneyland Paris celebrates it's 10th birthday next year so there is lots of refurbishment work being done at the moment - excuse to go back I hear you say?).

I took the opportunity to wear my highly coveted pink bomber jacket from New Look on this particular day which was perfectly made for an outfit post outside Sleeping Beauty's castle. It's a great piece that is easy to wear but always makes me feel a little bit more put together. For a day of exploring, I paired it with a t-shirt, jeans and my favourite Superga trainers for the ultimate comfort.

On a un-Disney related note, I've sat down to write this post about a million times in the past month but I've never really had the motivation to push through and finish it. I'm not sure why, maybe it's the fact that I've started a new job and it's taking more of my mental capability than before, but every evening when I get home from work, all I want to do is collapse on the sofa and watch back to back soaps (something I've never wanted to do in the past FYI!). But I'm determined to get back on my A game and post more consistently I promise!

BEAUTY: REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIP COLOR

BEAUTY: REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIP COLOUR

Revlon is definitely a brand that attracts my attention. I don't know if it's the fact that Emma Stone is their spokesperson and I just want to be her, or if it's their ability to create great affordable products but I always eagerly await their new launches. My friend Abby and I have been anticipating the release of the Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors ever since we first saw them on Instagram. We've literally waited months! And I'll tell you what, they didn't disappoint.

With all the beauty products on the market, it can be hard to know what is worth a try and what products you can miss. That's why I've decided to start a new series on the blog called '5 Products To Try'. A bit like a favourites post, I want to highlight some products that I think are definitely worth investing in. So without further ado here's the first one!

STYLE: TOPSHOP BLACK DUNGAREES

How to wear long black dungarees


Last weekend the sun definitely had its hat on and it finally felt like the weather was turning a corner. Fast forward to this weekend and we seem to have taken a step backwards, I'm sat here typing this post snuggled under the duvet, Cooper by my side for extra warmth, too scared to get out because it is so cold! So it's nice to be able to relive a spontaneous trip to the sea to make me feel better.

DIY: REVERSIBLE PETER PAN COLLAR

It's been a long time since I last sat down at my sewing machine and cracked on with a good old fashion project, so last weekend I decided that was exactly what I was going to do! I've had a series of Peter Pan collars saved on my Pinterest boards (shameless plus here) for quite some time so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to give them a try and this was the result!

BEAUTY: CHARLOTTE TILBURY K.I.S.S.I.N.G LIPSTICK IN KISS CHASE

BEAUTY: CHARLOTTE TILBURY K.I.S.S.I.N.G LIPSTICK IN KISS CHASE


I recently popped into the Charlotte Tilbury store at Covent Garden on my last trip to London and I couldn't resist having a sneaky peek at their two new lipstick shades which were launched just in time for Valentines Day last month. I've read a lot of blog posts which favour Between the Sheets but my heart was stolen by Kiss Chase the moment I laid eyes on it and in Seans words "what's money if you don't spend it", so guess what I ended up leaving the shop with *insert monkey emoji here*.

As I'm sure you're aware by now, a trip to London is my favourite thing to do. Ever. So when any kind of occasion crops up, it's aways my first suggestion. This time, as we went to the Design Museum which is just near the beautiful Tower Bridge, we took a stroll down Queens Walk would be a nice way to explore new areas (albeit the wet and windy weather!).

I don't normally like fruit based cakes, I guess I think if there's fruit in it then there's less cake! But since my friend and I made these Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins, I've become quite partial to them! They are so so easy to make and are a great addition to anybody's lunch box so without further ado, here's the recipe!

So it's Friday night. I have no plans. What better time to whip up a fresh face mask than now. I think I'll call this one the 'does it all' face mask because there's not much that this mask won't help with. Hydrating, exfoliating as well as helping to fight acne, I'm so excited to have a pamper evening tonight now *insert flamingo dancing emoji here*

How has it been a month since my last outfit post?! As cliché as it sounds, this year is just flying by for me and I can't quite believe that we are heading into March in a couple of days. Hopefully, that means some warmer weather is around the corner (typical Brit), but that wasn't the case the day I choose to wear this outfit which was a particularly chilly day!

DIY: MASSAGE BAR

DIY LUSH MASSAGE BAR

Part two of Valentines week is dedicated to making these easy peasy massage bars which are a great dupe for the Lush versions you can find here. I didn't realise this before but after looking on the Lush website, I've learnt there's actually quite a lot of health benefits to having a regular massage. Yup, that's right! According to recent studies, having massages has been linked to improving sleep, easing pain, boosting your mood and even boosts your complexion and hair. You can read more about that here but in the meantime I suggest you whip up a batch of these massage bars as a Valentines Day present, and tell your boyfriend to use it...on you! It's for your health after all!

HOW TO MAKE PANCAKES

Pancake day is hands down my favourite holiday of the year. Yup, holiday! I don't eat pancakes even nearly as often as I'd like throughout the year, but having been given a shiny new crepe pan for Christmas (thanks mum!), I've been making that extra effort to wip up a batch more often. So I thought I'd share the pancake recipe I've been using lately to ensure you have perfect pancakes on Tuesday!

BEAUTY: ANASTASIA BROW WIZ VS SOAP AND GLORY BROW ARCHERY

About this time last year, I fell head over heels in love with the Anastasia Brow Wizz for its ability to sculpt my brows without that 'coloured in' look. But then I started to read so many reviews about how similar Soap and Glory's Archery Brow Pencil is to Brow Wiz, so I thought I would put them to the test myself and I popped down to my local Boots to pick one up.

It's a fun and quick way to get my cake fix as soon as I decide I need it. The only problem is they are so easy to make that every night is a cake night! Don't tell me I didn't warn you...

I feel like this outfit is the perfect combination as it's formal, yet cute. This shirt has been my go-to when I want to make the effort to look a bit more put-together but I don't know what to wear. It's great as I can throw it on with jeans and then use accessories to either dress it up or down, or like above it can be paired with a skirt for a slightly more dressy look.
