I recently ran a poll on Twitter asking which subject you would like to see more of on my blog and surprisingly Lifestyle was the top result. I share some things on here but not a lot so I decided to share how Brent and I met. It’s so funny how things turn out, I’m very lucky to have met him and we still love talking about how we met even after 3.5 years so, it’s about time I share the story.
I’ve used NYX for a few years now, I started off using the Jumbo Eye Pencils and have always loved the brand. When I heard it was finally coming to Boots stores and saw mine would be stocking it, I got so excited and couldn’t wait to grab a few bits. I didn’t get as much as I had planned but I am happy with what I chose so here’s a little NYX haul for you.
Have you ever had an allergic reaction to a beauty item and your skin flared up, became red, bumpy, inflamed and itchy? Me too, it never used to happen to me, my skin used to be dry and maybe sensitive in the winter but I could deal with it, it was fine. After an event last year (read about it here) my skin was left so incredibly sensitive that even wearing makeup for longer than about 8 hours can cause me to flare up, become itchy, red, bumpy, it’s so uncomfortable. However, I am now fully prepared for whenever this may occur in the future.
Who else remembers my unhealthy obsession with the Maybelline SuperStay 7 Day Nail Polishes? I loved them so much I began a mission to try and own every single shade, however I soon discovered a new nail polish brand that has near enough taken over and replaced that obsession. The new nail polishes are from H&M and they are pretty impressive.
I have always been obsessed with stationery, the best part about the summer holidays while I was at school was buying all my new stationery for the year ahead, I loved it. I love stationery so much that I even started my own little business and I constantly search through Instagram looking for pretty pictures. I stumbled across Mink Studio and my gosh, you are going to fall in love.
I’m fairly open when it comes to my life and blog so I thought it would be fun to write a little post with some random facts about me. I ran a little poll on Twitter asking if people would like to see that as a post and some people did which was nice to know, was great no one clicked the “No you’re boring” option ha! So here it goes…
I’ve been a busy little bee with shopping recently, I didn’t realise just how much I had bought until I saw it all sitting on my vanity. I haven’t written a haul post in a while so I thought I would share all the bits and bobs that I had accumulated recently. Now a couple of products were gifted to me which I shall explain in the post but I am so grateful for the products, they are heaven sent and you shall find out why.
It’s been a very long time since I posted about my new releases on my shops and there are a lot! I made a bit of a change regarding my stores which I explain below but I much prefer the way things are now, it feels more streamline and can’t I wait to share my new products with you.
These tea’s can be a bit controversial, but before you click off thinking it’s a slimming tea, it isn’t. Some people long for a toned body which might mean dropping a few pounds and I’ve seen a few slimming teas on my Instagram feed before, Bootea being the main brand. I don’t agree with the tea’s that include ingredients that cause laxative type effects or one’s that are consumed in place of a meal, this tea is just a lovely blend of natural ingredients that are packed full of vitamins and minerals.
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)
