A WEEK WITH ANIMALS

A small fraction of you reading this post may know that on occasion, I work at an animal sanctuary to look after the animals when the owners are away on holiday. This week I have been doing that again but also house sitting and looking after their dogs, as well as all of the sanctuary animals. So because I haven’t been at home at all this week I didn’t have photos ready for the post I had planned. So I thought instead of stressing about not having the photos, I would change the post for this week and just share…

UNIVERSITY STATIONERY HAUL

In September I will be going into my third and final year of university so I thought I would go all out and buy some really nice stationary to help get me through the most difficult year. To some getting my stationery organised now might be a bit too soon but I like to be prepared and its just one less thing to worry about for when I move back to York in September. It’s already August so it will no doubt be September before I know it, so its best for me to get it all sorted now and…

WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY

It was my 23rd birthday on Tuesday just gone and I was spoilt rotten, so I thought I’d show you all what I got for my birthday off my parents. I have got a few other presents off my friends and other family members but I took these photos straight way on my birthday morning before seeing people so I haven’t included them in this post. I still haven’t seen a couple of my friends yet and I didn’t want to include presents off some of my friends and not include others so I thought it would be best to…

CRUELTY FREE: 23RD BIRTHDAY MAKEUP

Today is my 23rd birthday. Some how I am 23, I still feel like I’m 17! At times I feel like I am so behind in life, the majority of the people I went to school with finished university years ago and have full time jobs and have their life together. Where as I still have one year of uni left, I often get upset by this fact and feel like I am not moving fast enough. When I was younger I thought by this time I’d be in a relationship and getting married at 25!! How crazy! I couldn’t…

HOW TO RESPONSIBLY INTERACT WITH ANIMALS ON HOLIDAY

My own photo When I was on holiday in Mexico last year I came across people trying to get myself and other tourists to get photos taken with a monkey and some parrots. I immediately refused and couldn’t stop thinking about those poor animals all holiday. This is something I’ve seen in other countries too and I have seen a lot of people on social media post these photos with animals that they’ve got on holiday. To a person who isn’t particularly interested in animal rights or know much about animal behaviour, this kind of thing might not seem like such…

VEGAN RAINBOW CUPCAKES

While scrolling through Pinterest for hours on end like I often do, I came across something called ‘unicorn bark’ and it just looked so pretty I had to try and make it myself. Of course it wasn’t vegan so I ‘veganised’ it and incorporated it into these rainbow cupcakes I’ve made. The actual cake itself is just vanilla with rainbow hundreds and thousands throughout, with rainbow icing and real fresh edible flowers from Sainsbury’s. Ingredients for 6 cupcakes 140g self rising flour 100g caster sugar 1 tsp baking powder 1 cup of rainbow sprinkles 1 tsp vanilla extract 50ml vegetable…

THOUGHTS ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I wanted to quickly do a little post just to get some things off my chest in regards to my Youtube channel. If you have watched my videos you may have noticed that I haven’t posted a video since Christmas 2016 and I wanted to explain why. I started to make Youtube videos in 2013 when I was encouraged by people on instagram to make them. I used to talk to a big group of girls on instagram and a lot of us created our channels at the same time and shouted each other out when we first got started…

MY FAVOURITE LUSH PRODUCTS YOU HAVE TO TRY

Lush has been one of my favourite beauty brands for years, they never seem to let me down no matter what product I try.

So in todays post I wanted to share with you some of my all time favourites from lush that I think everyone needs to try. Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner – In shower body conditioners are literally the best invention ever for people who forget to moisturise like myself! After…

NEW ACCESSORIES

For a while I have been after a handbag that I could use everyday that wasn’t too small or too big, and I have finally found the perfect one! It’s a tan coloured Ralph Lauren faux leather over the body bag. While I was looking for this perfect bag I often came across bags that looked perfect but my purse wouldn’t fit in them! I used to have a Michael Kors purse which was the same shape as the Cath Kidston one in the photo above but it was just slightly bigger and never fit properly into small bags. Ralph…

CRUELTY FREE: EVERYDAY BRONZY SUMMER MAKEUP

My favourite season is summer, I have always believed that I am meant to live on a tropical island not in the rainy UK, as I just love the sun so much! I have been loving this heat wave we have been experiencing recently so I thought I’d share with you the makeup I’ve been wearing recently that enhances a summer glow. SPF – Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection – I have never liked putting sun cream on my face because no matter what I tried it always looked greasy, so I never wore it as I cant stand looking shiny. But…
