I’m always open to trying new skincare, especially products that sound amazing for my dry skin. I’ve said it in numerous posts before but I will always stick by it, I believe skincare items are the items that should be splurged on as you can’t turn back the clock once those wrinkles start creeping in, preventing them is a must. Today I bring you my first impressions on two new skincare items I have been trying from Decléor.
I’ve talked about H&M Beauty non-stop since I posted my H&M Beauty Haul, I just can’t get enough of the newly revamped beauty range, everything is so pretty! I’ve been playing around with the products I bought for a while now and it’s about time I shared my thoughts on them.
I didn’t plan on writing any gift guides this year but after swooning over a lot of beautiful items for sale this year, I decided to write a luxury Christmas gift guide for her, for that someone special in your life….and also it’s a wishlist for myself *winking emoji*
I was really hoping I wouldn’t be writing this post but here I am, 40 weeks pregnant and no baby to show off just yet. From 37 weeks I have had every single symptom that labour is on it’s way but he’s not here just yet.
A shade that’s perfect for the A/W months and the only dark shade I own from this line. Extreme Blackcurrant is an intense dark purple that looks almost black. With just a hint of purple depending on the lighting, it’s a very pretty shade.
It’s no secret that I am obsessed with LUSH, as soon as my stash starts to get a little low I get really sad and the urge to go on a little spending spree online is always niggling away…currently the situation at the moment. I have recently reviewed a couple of LUSH’s new releases: Intergalactic and Yoga Bomb, both of which were amazing. My latest bath time pamper was The Experimenter.
I love to curl my hair, whether it’s long or short I curl it 90% of the time. Up until recently I’ve used my Remington Pearl Wand to create curls however the barrel is quite thin and therefore I end up with poodle curls. I’ve been dying to get the Victoria’s Secret tousled waves for so long now, a look that I could only achieve the second day from my pearl wand, however I can finally have them straight away.
I’ve seen people talking about Media Kits or Press Kits a lot since I started blogging, I researched what they were at first but never actually made one. I decided that if I want to take my blog seriously then I should probably make one, I have never been asked for my blog details or required to forward my media kit on however I feel it’s better to have one just in case.
I love the brand Ole Henriksen, I have used a fair bit from the range this past year and have yet to find anything I didn’t get on with. From the gorgeous Clean Truth Wipes to the Pure Truth Melting Cleanser which is just incredible, I was very excited to try the Invigorating Night Créme* from Escentual.
Back in September my best friend told me that a new H&M would be opening in my local area. We already have a huge store however after looking it up to find an opening date I saw they were going to be stocking homeware and the new beauty range. Excited was an understatement, we have been eagerly awaiting it to open and it finally has!
I haven’t written a pregnancy update in a long time as nothing has really changed. Midwife appointments and organising G’s things is all that’s been happening. I am 38 weeks today and it’s such a relief knowing the end is in sight now. I love that I could have him at any moment but the wait is some what tedious now.
I love nail polish shades around this time of year. Deep berries and sparkly top coats are a refreshing change from the spring/summer pastel milky shades. Flicking through Boots’ Christmas catalogue, I noticed a new body and beauty range by the clothing brand REISS and was instantly drawn in.
October has flown by and I know I say this every month but it really has. November is going to be the craziest month ever. Awaiting the arrival of our little bundle of joy, I really can’t wait to finally meet him, I am so excited. I doubt I will have a favourites post next month, I don’t think favourite nappy brands count, but here’s this months.
Yes I am another blogger that is obsessed with Autumn and everything about it, just check out my Why Autumn is the Best Season post! Autumn fashion is always lovely but this year, it’s especially gorgeous and so many things have taken my fancy. Being pregnant I have resisted buying anything as I only have a couple of weeks left and don’t want to have loads of nice autumnal clothing that I can’t wear afterwards.
The Estée Lauder Modern Muse perfume is a lovely addition to any perfume collection. Brent bought it for me Christmas and I’ve loved using it ever since. Everything from the bottle, the scent and even the box is just lovely. #boxhoarder
You may or may not know that a couple of weeks ago I launched a new shop on Etsy, Paper Chic Co where I sell printable desk planners. I’ve designed a number of different planners from daily, weekly and blog related planners all instantly downloadable after purchase and can then be printed off as many times as you wish. I have designed a few more and wanted to share them with you. If you are looking for a Christmas planner, I have you covered.

Autumn is by far my most favourite season, I love everything from the fresh chilly mornings to the pretty berry makeup shades. Autumn fashion is the thing I love the most though, the burgundy shades, chunky knitted sweaters and scarves, the list is endless! Whilst perusing the isles in different stores and online over the past month, I’ve found so many amazing items and thought I would share my favourites with you.
As we are all aware during pregnancy things change, things happen and for me I was all for taking care of myself as best I could. Unless I’m at home I try to make an effort still and look my best as it makes myself feel better about my changing body, watching your tummy get bigger and bigger is so strange. I thought I would share with you some products that I have found really helpful during pregnancy.
I thought I had already reviewed this polish, however after investing my old posts I noticed I had actually put the wrong name on another nail polish review, silly mistake. Now it’s all been fixed, today I bring you the actual review post for the lovely shade Divine Wine.
Lush have recently released some new products after discontinuing some of their older ones and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some. I posted a Little Lush Haul recently and then bought a couple of other products on a separate occasion, I just can’t get enough!
