MY JEWELLERY COLLECTION AND STORAGE

I have an obsession with jewellery, I always seem to be buying new pieces even though I have so much already! I only wear gold as I find that it suits my skin tone more than silver or rose gold. I do have a couple of rose gold pieces but I no longer have any silver. Years ago I did a quiz online that figured out what colour metal your skin tone suits more and mine was gold and ever since I just cant bring myself to wear silver, even if I love the piece I just cant do it.…

TWENTY FOUR

  I turned 24 on the 1st of August. I still cant quite believe I’m that old, I feel like I was still a teenager just yesterday! Everyone who I usually celebrate with was away over the week of my birthday (how rude), so celebrations began early with my BFF, we got our nails done at Nails Inc nail bar and went for food and cocktails. On the day of my birthday I went for breakfast with my mum and brother at one of our favourite places and had a lovely brunch. As seen in the photo above I wore a…

I have had plenty of times where I’ve had a break from blogging and I’ve had to get myself back into the habit of creating posts and getting ideas flowing again.

Blog Makeover – If you’ve been away for quite a while you might want to give your blog a bit of a makeover. Whether that…

FIGURING THINGS OUT

I’ve been officially finished university since the 18th of May and I had planned on getting straight back into posting blog posts when I finished but I’ve needed a little while to recover and gather my thoughts. Whenever I tried to think about blogging, my mind was blank when it came to post ideas. So over these past few uni free months I have came to some conclusions when it comes to blogging and my future plans. I have been blogging since I was 16 and always wanted to turn it into my full time job. I haven’t been able to…

TAKING A BREAK

As you may have noticed, except from last weeks post, I haven’t posted a blog post on here in 7 weeks! I am not very happy about this fact as I was on a roll posting every week since last May! Although I haven’t been able to actually access my blog recently, as my university has blocked WordPress and my site, which is really great of them! During this time I have been working non stop on my dissertation. I’ve finally handed in my finished project and although it didn’t quite sink in at first, it has now and I…

VEGAN ICED EASTER BISCUITS

If you’ve been following my blog for a little while you might know by now that for almost every occasion I like to make iced biscuits in different shapes according to which occasion I’m making them for. I’m like a child really but I just love the process of making and decorating biscuits! I have been giving myself a break from university work since I’ve just recently handed my dissertation in, so I just had such a chilled day making these biscuits while listening to George Ezra’s new album. If you’re having a chilled day this easter weekend this is…

LUSH 2018 VALENTINES DAY COLLECTION

Even though I haven’t been in a relationship since I was 16 I still appreciate valentines day in a different way. Everyone puts the focus on their boyfriends or girlfriends but I think theres nothing wrong with showing your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them on valentines day too. I don’t think you should feel sad if you’re single on valentines day either as it is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself! I love any excuse to have a pamper evening and Lush just makes it a whole lot easier! I think their valentines collections may…

CRUELTY FREE: DAILY WINTER MAKEUP ROUTINE

Usually I don’t change my daily makeup products very often as I love every product I currently use, the last time I switched up what I used was in the summer. So I thought it was about time I had a rearrange of my makeup for this season and start using some of the products I received for Christmas. Everything I use is cruelty free and theres a mix of drug store and high end products, you’ve probably seen me talk about some of these products in previous blog posts so I’ll just briefly mention those ones so I don’t…

CRUELTY FREE: SKINCARE ROUTINE

I have always been blessed with good clear skin, I rarely get breakouts and I always had an even skin tone. I didn’t suffer from acne as a teenager so I didn’t ever have a skin care routine, I used to just remove my makeup with a face wipe, washed my face with plain water and I had no problems can you believe it?! My skin changed when I was in my first year of university aged 21 and when my diet went down hill. When my skin plays up I can guarantee it is because I haven’t been eating…

ESSENTIALS THAT GET ME THROUGH WINTER

Winter isn’t my favourite season of the year, as much as I love snow I prefer warm temperatures and sunny days. I find it difficult at this time of the year to get motivated and get back into the swing of things after the festive period, so I’ve listed some of the things that I love to do to help make winter a little bit more bearable. Face masks – I feel like everyone needs to treat their skin right in the winter with a good moisturising face mask. The Lush rosy cheeks mask is one of the best to…
