My Eyebrow Routine

My eyebrows are a part of my daily makeup routine that I can’t go without. Although I have dark hair almost everywhere else on my body (sorry if that is totally TMI!), my eyebrows are quite sparse and always need filling in. I have tried lots of different products, from pencils to mousses to gels, but I think I have found a new dream brow product in the B. Defined Eyebrow kit in Light.

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things #15

Richard Mayne

This post is very different for me so if you are not interested in anything other than beauty/food/girly lifestyle bits please stop reading here. I totally understand that this kind of post is not something that everyone wants to see when they come to this blog for a bit of light reading but it is important to me so I want to write about it.

The Perfect Journal For Busy/Lazy Girls And Guys

Ever since I was a little girl I have tried to write diaries but I have never had the motivation to keep them going for much longer than a week before getting bored or just forgetting to write in them! Because of my history of inconsistent diary keeping I am quite surprised that I have never missed a blog post upload yet. The thing that keeps me posting so regularly on here is that you lovely lot, my small and beautiful audience, rely on me to upload posts every Monday and Thursday. I have really enjoyed writing my blog as a record of lots of great things I have done this year and it has made me realise that I want to keep a physical diary too as who knows if blogs will still be around in ten years time… Someone told me that iPads weren’t even around five years ago which shows just how quickly technology moves on!

I Need Your Help!

So my lovely readers, I am not writing to you today to give you a run-down of my weekly favourites or to review a new lipstick but to ask for your help instead!

The Only Nail Polishes You Need This Summer

I am the first to admit that I usually jump on the band wagon with hyped up products as I love trying out new products to see how they work for me and how they could work for you guys, my readers! However these Barry M Speedy Quick Dry nail polishes have been on my radar for a few months and I didn't feel the need to try them until recently... But I am very glad that I did!

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things // Wedding Edition

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending my boyfriend’s dad’s wedding on a beautiful sunny day in Devon. It was such a lovely day full of love, laughter and just a few happy tears… we all had an amazing time! The location couldn’t have been more perfect as the ceremony and wedding breakfast were held in a charming hotel on the North Devon coastline with the beach as our backdrop all day long. This made for beautiful views, memories and photos, some of which I will share with you now for more of a photo diary style post rather than my usual weekly favourites…

The Three Minute Fake Tan That I Really Wanted To Work

Has anyone else heard about St Tropez’s newest fake tan offering that they recently added to their range? This month they released the world’s first in-shower tanning lotion and I needed wanted to try it as soon as it hit the shelves a couple of weeks ago. I am a girl who has had many tanning disasters in the past so I am always on the lookout for a completely foolproof fake tanning method that even I can get on with, and I thought that the new St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion might be the answer to all my prayers.

Drugstore Dupe // Eyeshadow Palette Edition

My previous drugstore dupe posts (the shadow stick edition and the foundation edition) have been based on high street products that are almost identical to their premium counterparts. Today's post is a little different in the sense that I will be reviewing the Wet 'n' Wild Comfort Zone palette which I can't actually find a direct high end comparison to as none of the premium palettes that I own match up to the standard of this amazing drugstore one!

Best Birthday Present Idea (And Its Free)

So as a few of you may know, it was my boyfriend Ed's 21st birthday a couple of weeks ago and we had a lovely time celebrating his birthday. As 21 is such a big one, I wanted to get Ed something that he would remember forever so for his birthday I am taking us for a trip to Amsterdam in August! However I also got Ed another present that I made myself for almost nothing, and I think it meant even more to him than the holiday!

Peony-ding Inspiration

So my lovelies, I have a bit of a confession to make.

10 Things That Make Me Happy

I am writing this post after getting inspiration from Essie Button and Hank Green's videos on their favourite feelings. From the title of 'favourite feelings', I thought that the videos would be about Estée and Hank's favourite emotions such as excitement or passion. In actual fact, their videos were all about the things that made them happiest in life and it made me want to share some of my favourite feelings with you guys too...

Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara Range

It is a well-known fact in the beauty community that Lancôme makes incredible mascaras. There are a lot of high end brands that also do, but arguably none are as popular as Lancôme as it is a brand that is truly renowned for its mascaras. Lancôme makes a huge variety of mascaras so today I am reviewing the four mascaras from their classic Hypnôse range to help you find out which one is right for you.

A Weekend In Bath

I had an awesome weekend in Bath for my best friend Lissie’s 21st birthday with our other best friend Nina. Lissie goes to uni in Bath so I have visited her there a few times before and I absolutely love the city, it is so quintessentially British with lots of independent cafes and shops and bars. We spent the weekend having cocktails in the sun and chilling in the park with the best ice cream I have ever had (English Trifle flavour ice cream is always a good idea). It was great to catch up with some of my oldest friends in such a beautiful city and we had such a fun time reminiscing about the good old days! What did you guys get up to this weekend?

Grab Yourself A Free Graze Box

I’m sure that many of you will have heard of the company graze, a service that mails boxes of delicious yet healthy snacks to your home or work. The traditional boxes that they send out are each packed to the brim with four different snacks (which makes them perfect for a week’s worth of mid-morning munchies) and yet are slim enough to fit through your letterbox so you don’t need to wait in to receive them. This service is brilliant and so easy to set up online as it is completely customisable to suit your needs. The real stars of the show however are the snacks themselves, dayyym they’re good! The whole point of graze is to provide healthy yet tasty snacks and they do it so well. They offer healthy nibbles such as nuts, seeds and olives with flavoursome twists and they also offer more ‘naughty’ snacks such as flapjacks and brownies that they have managed to make healthier than their usual variations. Each box that you receive includes a little booklet detailing all of nutritional information about each snack so it is really easy to keep an eye on what you are eating, not that you really need to as every single snack that they offer has at least one health benefit to it!

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things #12

If you are familiar around these parts, you will have realised that I haven’t done a weekly favourites post in a couple of weeks now as I have been trying out a few different lifestyle-y posts on Thursdays. If you are a fan of weekly favourites there is no need to worry because they are some of the posts that I enjoy writing most and they won’t be going anywhere, they just may not be every week. Today my weekly favourites are back and I have rustled up a nice little London themed one so why not take a peek (or a sticky beak as they apparently say in cockney rhyming slang!)…

The Prettiest Watch That I Ever Did See

I recently realised that I no longer wear much jewellery which is weird for me as I used to have a bracelet obsession and would wear as many as I could feasibly fit on my arm! Now the only thing you will see on my wrist is my beautiful Olivia Burton watch that I wear almost every single day so I thought it was only fair to write a post dedicated to my most favourite accessory.
