University Update | #1

Hi everyone! Firstly, a HUGE apology for my massive break in blogging recently. Starting university has been absolutely crazy and for the past 12 weeks my life has been completely different to what it used to be. I'm so excited to be back blogging and I have loads of new products and topics to talk to you about this month, including posts about my uni experiences! I got the idea of doing an update on how everything is going at university from Alice Thorpe (ohhitsonlyalice - YouTube), who has recently become one of my favourite YouTubers, as I just thought it was a really great way to document how I'm feeling about uni and maybe it will help some of you who are starting university next year, or are already there.

Luxemme Christmas Vouchers Giveaway!

Along with some other bloggers, I am helping promote the Luxemme Christmas vouchers giveaway this season. I have previously worked with the upcoming fashion brand, which are a brilliant new fashion brand and very blogger friendly (that's great for all us bloggers out there!). If you haven't seen my Luxemme fashion review post I will link it here, and you can see my wearing one of their twin pieces. 

Luxemme are all about spreading the love, last Christmas the brand worked with charities and were able to send them free clothing for those who didn't have anywhere to live, we're orphaned or those who weren't able to spend the festive season with loved ones. This Christmas, Luxemme are giving away free Christmas vouchers (worth £15 each) so that you can treat your friends and family without have to stick to a tight budget. These vouchers make the perfect gift for pretty much anyone (apart from males, but lets forget the men for now!) and what you need to do is simple!

False Tan Review | St Moriz Medium Instant Tanning Mousse

Hiyaaaa! So today I'm going to be talking about false tan on the cheap and my opinions on the Instant Tanning Mousse by St Moriz. I highly believe that pretty much everyone has heard of this false tan, its been on the market for many years and a favourite amongst pretty much everyone I know who uses tanning products. I believe this is a new formula, as the old packaging used a darker shade of text (or maybe they've just changed the packaging) but either way it still works exactly the same...

Favourite Drugstore Foundation | L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Foundation

A while ago I wrote a post about finding your perfect foundation (which you can read here), in the post I mentioned I was still yet to find my perfect foundation and this still stands. However I have found a drugstore foundation that I have been loving for a good few months now and wanted to share it with you all if you haven't already tried this product out... 

I always think of L'Oreal as a brand which falls between drugstore and high end, not necessarily anything to do with the price (although the brand is a little bit more pricey than the likes of Rimmel and Maybelline - two of the most well known drugstore brands), but more so to do with the way all their products are packaged. I definitely think L'oreal is one of the 'best looking' brands within the drugstore market and in my opinion a lot of their products are better quality than a few of the more inexpensive ones.

Fashion Review | LUXEMME

Hi! I'm going to be talking about the fashion brand Luxemme today, a brand I've been seeing over Instagram recently through the likes of fashion bloggers! The brand contacted me a while ago asking if I was interested in trying one of their pieces and of course I said yes, what girl wouldn't right? There was a choice of items to select from and I chose the Charisse Suede Crop Scallop Two Piece which retails at £35.00, the piece is a faux suede outfit in a mix between a camel and taupe colour (my favourite colours to wear right now).

New Youtube Video! | Florida Vlog

Sooo, I've finally got round to editing and finishing my vlog from my family trip to Florida. It mainly just a little video to remember my holiday by and for my family to watch as we didn't take a video camera, but I thought I'd share it on Youtube as well because of course when in Disney World...

A/W15 Lust List | &...I'm moving to University!



Hello!! Today I'm bringing you my Autumn/Winter wishlist for 2015. I don't know whether I just wasn't as interested in fashion this time last year or whether all my favourite stores have upped their game this season but I'm in love with EVERYTHING I see online, everything. Not to mention the ever so well known Public Desire have an extra 20% of the sale and, they're all stocked up on those instagram-worthy lace up heels...amazing.

OOTD | Boohoo Under50 Festival Campaign!

Hi everyone, its been ages since I've written because I've been on holiday in Florida (as you can probably tell from the Goofy plush toy in the background of the above photo). Today I'm bringing you a collaboration with Boohoo, which is soooo exciting! The collab is with their Festival Shop which I am absolutely in love with. I am loving the seude trends and the idea of casual meets dressy. You can check out their Festival Shop here , and I will also leave links to the outfit Boohoo kindly sent me to try out! 

The whole idea of the 'Under50' campaign is that the whole outfit is under £50, this is perfect because you may have already spent a lot of money on the festival ticket and therefore have a budget for your outfit, this makes it affordable but of course still fashionable. Personally, I'm not a festival go-er myself but the trends are to die for but luckily festival fashion is in fashion everywhere and not just at festivals (not that it even matters!).

How I take care of my Skin and Hair | Featuring A Passion for Natural and GoldCrush

Today I'm going to be talking about a few of my favourite products when it comes to taking care of my skin and hair. My skin and hair are definitely my weakest points when it comes to beauty etc purely because they are both in bad condition. I've been using a lot of products recently to try and get them into a much better state and I wanted to share my favourites with you...

Collaboration with House of Fraser! | Homeware Moodboard/Inspiration Wishlist

Hello everyone! Today I have an exciting little post all about homeware inspiration. I've collaborated with House of Fraser to create a mood board featuring some of their products, and also products from other stores, to show you my current taste in everything homeware! I've always wanted to bring out products of my own, but never been totally sure on what I actually wanted to (makeup, hair, clothes etc!) but while I've been decorating my room I've discovered how much I actually love homeware and I would absolutely love to design my own homeware range! I've chosen 11 of my favourite items from the House of Fraser homeware range that fit the theme of my new bedroom, and I absolutely love them! Read more to find out my favourite picks...

What do the Contents of my Handbag say about Me?

When I saw this post on Ginger N Roses I thought it was a really interesting tag to write. There's always 'whats in my bag?' videos across Youtube but I've never really seen what the contents of someone's bag might say about them. Credits to Dinner With Maddie who created this tag, I guess someone's handbag possessions can say a lot about them! 
 I own a Rebecca Minkoff Tote which is now old season and I can't seem to find it anywhere online, besides that its a good sturdy bag which has lasted me a long time and is a stable in my wardrobe as black goes with everything!

Travelling Guide | Hand Luggage Essentials / Inspo

Travelling. 2


Its that time of the year when Instagram is full of insanely photogenic destinations and people's holiday photos. I wanted to do a little series of blog posts focusing on travelling, whether thats travelling for a long period of time or just going away for a few weeks. I'm going on one holiday this summer at the end of August to Florida with my family (mum's been convinced as its the only family holiday all three children are happy to agree on, with us all being awkward ages and that kinda thing). I've put together a checklist for hand luggage as this is always my favourite thing to pack for a holiday, I love having an organised bag full of a few of my favourite items along with travelling necessities - making sure you're organised when you're going away is a really important thing and helps to make your trip feel extra organised.

A day with NARS | NARS Makeup Lesson in Leeds, Harvey Nichols

Its been so long since I've been able to blog, so what better way than to start it with an exiting post about NARS - a favourite brand amongst the majority of bloggers. Last Tuesday I attended a makeup lesson with makeup artist Sonia Nannra at Harvey Nichols Leeds which was organised by my friend Ruby. Everyone at NARS were so welcoming, I would classify them as a pretty blogger friendly brand and it was fab to learn more about the brand itself and different makeup techniques.
