One of my least favourite things about maintaining bright blonde hair is how damaging it can be. Unfortunately I have the perfect example of the devastating affects of bleach… In late October 2016 my mum had finished touching up my silver roots with bleach and asked me what I wanted her to do with the leftover product. I wasn’t concentrating and I asked her to “just slap it all over”… Read more..
I’ve never really considered myself one for accessories; probably partly because that would be an extra thing to have to think about in the morning. I have a couple of minimalistic bracelets, a necklace and a pair of earrings which I wear everyday without fail, and I’ve never even thought of adding anything else… That is, up until a few weeks ago when I was first introduced to the Welly Merck brand and the watches they have to offer.

Particularly during party seasons, it’s so easy to spend an absolute fortune on false lashes, all in the hopes for longer, more voluminous eyelashes. Fibre (how us brits spell it – sorry Younique!) lash mascara appeals to me because it gives the impression of longer lashes, without having to apply false lashes with glue – which would be damaging for your lashes if used regularly. A friend of mine who works for Younique got in touch with me and kindly offered to send me the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara in exchange for a review. I was so excited to try this product out, and now I’m even more excited to share the results with you all. Read more..
As spring begins to rear it’s wonderful head around this year it’s got me thinking about the choices I make in the kitchen. I’m starting to realise that working full time whilst juggling a social life and my blog / YouTube channel, I’ve become a little lazy when it comes to my food. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still cooking for myself and all that jazz, but I’ve just been thinking – there’s GOT to be an easier way to enjoy the foods I love without all that time and effort. I’ve taken to the internet and have started to lust for some amazingly convenient gadgets which could completely switch up my culinary game with just the click of a button (literally). I’ve decided to share my kitchen wishlist of 2018 with you all, just in case these gadgets appeal (get it…? peel…? HAHA) to you as much as they do me! Read more..
I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that my skin is always at its absolute worst at this time of year. With the colder temperatures comes scaly and even crusty skin (yum), and my face always bears the brunt of it. At the very same time, over indulging in all the scrummy food and alcohol over the festive period has me breaking out in spots and blackheads left, right and centre. Having combination skin to boot makes buying skincare products a bit of a nightmare when you’re trying to combat several issues in one go so I’m usually overly cautious about the products I use on my face. This year however my skin has been particularly bad so I reached for the new skincare range Palmer’s Cocoa Butter in an act of sheer desperation Read more..
Over the past couple of months my mental health hasn’t been up to scratch, and I’ve been dreaming about the ultimate pick-me-up Pamper Party which would make me feel more than okay again. Even just thinking about how I’d spend a whole day in absolute luxury has made me feel a little bit better. With my mental health back on track again, I thought I’d share with you all my ultimate pamper party day. Although some aspects of it are completely unattainable (such as a zero calorie pizza mountain… we all have dreams okay?!) other aspects are just a dream come true in terms of luxury (such as the Addictive Arts Perfume). With some tweaks I fully intend to live out this little dream of mine. Read more..
Jo Malone is one of those brands we’ve all heard about, but not necessarily had the opportunity or the funds to try. That is the exact reason I jumped for joy when I received my invitation to the Jo Malone English Oak launch at the Cambridge store. I am so, so lucky to have been asked to attend this event, and I was beyond excited about it! I’ve always heard amazing things about Jo Malone, and their products are the definition of Instagram-worthy, so it was high time I gave them a go! Read more..
A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely team at Multipower to create a baking recipe for their 2017 Bake Off Competition. Within this recipe I was asked to incorporate the Multipower 100% Pure Whey Protein Flavours. I decided to create some chocolate no-bake protein energy balls with peanut butter. Luckily for me, they turned out even more delicious than I was hoping! Keep reading to find out how to recreate my recipe. Read more..
Let’s talk tampons, and more importantly, how we get rid of them. I don’t know about you, but when I started my period I never once received a user manual on how to use or to dispose of sanitary waste. I don’t know where I got the notion from, but I just saw it as a given to throw tampons in the toilet. They seem pretty degradable and no one wants to see the evidence of my period in the bathroom bin. Especially not after a week – that might start to pong (sorry for the TMI but you know it’s true). In this post I’ll be sharing with you all the TRUTH about tampon disposal and my discovery of the Fab Little Bag, which has honestly put an end to all my tampon disposal worries. Read more..
A little while ago I was contacted to review a pair of Koko lashes. I’d never heard of Koko lashes before, but after doing some research I was excited to try them out. They have so many different kinds of lashes and they are all handmade with high quality synthetic fibres and human hairs. To top it off they’re cruelty free! One of my absolute favourite things in a beauty brand, and something I definitely look for before buying a product. I decided to go for a slightly bolder than usual style of falsies (bolder for me anyway) for something different. Read more..
