I am sorry this post has gone up late, I usually try to get this post live at 9am on the first day of every month but I just forgot this month. April has just flown by, when I realised I was looking at my old April desktop wallpaper and wondering why the dates looked odd I suddenly realised I was late! Hopefully next month I will be on time.
Unlike other brands, Olympus are not only providing amazing high-tech cameras, they are supplying us with beautiful leather goods in order to look fashionable whilst using our beautiful cameras. Today I am sharing two pretty accessories with you that are perfect for Summer and obviously for keeping your camera safe.
The weather recently has just been lovely where I live, I’ve had my sunglasses on and have been able to leave the house without my coat, it’s a great feeling that Summer is finally rolling back around. Getting Summer ready only means one thing, sorting out the hairy beasts that are my legs and getting them ready so my fresh hair-free pins can be on show.
I don’t know if anyone remembers but a little while back I got a bit hot-headed on Twitter about the questionable customer service that I had received from my local Chanel counter (more on that later) and I’ve recently been seeing a lot of kafuffle surrounding the Kylie Jenner company and their awful customer service skills. Then I got thinking, people still seem crazed over the lip kits, regardless of the bad company’s ethics, which seems totally bizarre to me so, would bad customer service put you off?
The haircare isle in Boots has recently welcomed a lot of new product releases. I noticed one on TV and then through the world of blogging and YouTube, I heard about another new line. I have accumulated a lot of new bits recently and have been trying them all out for a while now and it’s about time I share my thoughts and have a haircare showdown.
Now I have my own desk space to work in, I couldn’t wait to decorate it. I will be sharing a full desk tour but I wanted to just write a whole post on where I got my beautiful wall art from. Getting cute designs doesn’t have to be expensive and for any decorative bits, I always turn to Etsy first.
This review post is long overdue. With skin troubles, a move and constantly being on the go with George, tanning has not been an option. I have wanted to do it for so long but just never got around to it. Well now I’ve actually used this a few times, I can finally post my thoughts about the Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs Spray*.
I knew when I moved house that I would be able to have a separate desk and vanity instead of using my vanity for both. Since I do now have the space, I’m able to decorate it exactly how I have always wanted too. I will be writing about my desk space soon, giving you a closer look into the bits and bobs I have but today I want to share a super quick and easy DIY to take your plain, simple silver letter trays to a beautiful gold.
My free desktop wallpaper posts seem to be going down quite well. Last month I just posted the same designs as the previous month, but for April I have four brand new designs and one old one, obviously the marble one as everyone loved that design the most. I hope you like the new designs and as always, comment below which one is your favourite.
Bioderma is probably one of the beauty industries favourite skincare brands, especially when it comes to their removable products. The Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellar Water took the blogging world by storm a couple of years ago and I too jumped on that band wagon without a second thought. For someone who suffers with dry, dehydrated and sometimes sensitive skin, it’s a brand I have welcomed with opened arms.
Apart from the odd photograph here and there on my Instagram and Snapchat, I rarely talk about George on my blog, even in my Birthing Story post, I didn’t go into that much detail. Although I told myself I would never write a post on breastfeeding I have finally caved. After reading another bloggers post, I learnt that Jamie Oliver, is starting a pro-breastfeeding campaign and I have mixed feelings. Not regarding his campaign per say but just peoples reactions to it in general. I just can’t keep my thoughts in any longer. I’m hesitant to write this post as I won’t lie, I’m scared I’m going to get attacked by airing my opinion but never mind, here it goes…(grab a cuppa, it’s a long one)
Urban Decay are without a doubt my favourite brand for palettes and eyeshadows. I adore their lipsticks as well but MAC are still a firm contender with them. I always go a little crazy when I hear about a new release from Urban Decay – I still perv over the Naked Smoky palette on a regular basis, but last years exciting release was the Naked on the Run palette.
If you read my blog a lot you know I adore the SuperStay 7 Day Nail Colour range from Maybelline. The formula of the polishes is just incredible, some better than others but that’s always the way. Since I have reviewed every colour I own, I decided to make a post with all the main swatch pictures and links to the full reviews. This way, if you’re thinking about getting a new shade or even just intrigued to try the range, this should make things easier for you.
Like most people I love taking photographs and documenting my life. A quick snap and that memory is frozen in time and can be kept forever, referred to when you’re feeling sad, lost or just to remember that time. Technology has taken over in the recent years, my iPhone is literally glued to my hand, especially since having George I don’t want to miss a moment. You all know I keep all my memories in Project Life albums but printing photographs can be a nightmare.
Ever since it opened I have been so eager to get to the Oxford Street LUSH and I finally was able to get a quick sneak around whilst in London last week – post coming on that soon. It was so much bigger than I expected and I didn’t have time for a proper look round, I just went straight to the bath bombs and bubble bars and that was it. I tried to stick to products I have never used or seen before but I did make one repurchase of one item.
It’s been 5 days since I last posted and for that I apologise, Brent had the week off and although we were super busy nearly everyday, I loved not sitting at my desk constantly and just wanted to have a little break and enjoy our time together properly.
Today I am back from my mini break with a post about two beautiful new lipsticks. A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to some lipsticks from a brand that I am very quickly falling in love with. Charlotte Tilbury products are so aesthetically pleasing and by far one of the most luxurious brands out there. I went on the site with the intention of buying one new lippy and ended up with two. Just a normal shopping experience then really!
I’m so behind I’m sorry! I had the desktop wallpapers ready to go but actually forgot to write the post. This month they are the same as last month but for April I will be designing new ones with the exception of the marble wallpaper as that seemed to be everyone’s favourite.
There’s just nothing better than clean sheets on your bed, well apart from brand-spanking new bed linen altogether! What better way to test my new Christy Chantilly Cream* bed linen than with a photoshoot with my favourite little man. And yes they are G approved.
My obsession for Etsy stickers is getting a little out of hand. I have become addicted to decorating my planner and making it look all pretty. If you didn’t know I now have a YouTube channel where I film “Plan With Me” videos, showing how I decorate and plan in my Kate Spade Planner.
I knew as soon as I found out I was pregnant that I wanted to start a separate Project Life album for the new arrival. Once George arrived I couldn’t decide which album to go for, I didn’t want a huge 12×12 as I wasn’t sure I would be able to fill it up but them the 6×8 just didn’t seem big enough and in the UK Project Life products are really hard to come by. In the end I did settle with the 12×12 as I’ve decided that I will just fit in as many years as I can, if I don’t fill it with just his first year that is. I thought it would be nice to post a little haul on what I picked up as some of the cards are so beautiful.
