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..
Do you ever just find yourself in the mood for baking? This has been me all week, so I decided to get creative and pair my baking craving with a little Easter festivity. A say a little, I mean a lot. Once I started with the Easter themed cake ideas I couldn’t stop! This cake is a really crowd-pleaser and is destined to generate a room full of “oohs” and “aahs”. If you feel like showing off to your family and friends this Easter, or even just doing a nice spot of baking by yourself or with the kids, you’re in the right place! Read more..
Did polaroid photos ever go out of fashion? If they did, I never got the memo. All I know is that ever since I can remember I have wanted to cover my room in little square photos with white edges. OutKast obviously added to this and made me want to shake it like a polaroid pictureeeee without actually providing me with a polaroid picture to shake… Rude huh? Unfortunately, forking out upwards of £60 for a bulky Polaroid camera, which I would be too scared to use in case I broke it, has always seemed a bit indulgent for me. I’ve seen that a lot of bloggers have been working with a company called Printiki over the past few months. I jumped at the chance to get involved, especially with the added benefit of having seen everyone else’s gorgeous prints and reviews already… Read more..
It’s that time of year again, but it should be called marmite day because you either love Valentines Day, or you hate it with a burning passion. Either or. I sit on the fence with this one. On the one hand, I love that there’s a day to celebrate LOVE as a concept. Whether it be familial love, the undying love you have for your best friend(s) or the love of your life. What can I say? I just love love. On the other hand, I do appreciate that Valentines Day is just another day for the corporations to rinse you dry of your hard earned cash, and make you feel like money is how to show your loved ones that you care (GAHHH CAPITALISM RANT). Ahem … I don’t think money should be spent in excess for this day, but you should instead just shower each and every person you meet with love, love, love. And yep I’ll say it one more time; LOVE. So with Valentines Day in everyone’s mind this week, I thought I would write you all a list of 50 Romantic Movies to watch. Whether you’re on your own, with your friends and family, or with your soulmate. Not a single penny has to be spent, let’s just celebrate one of the most amazing feelings there is. Without any further passionate ramblings, here are my personal 50 favourite romantic movies, in no particular order: Read more..
Interviews are terrifying, there is no denying that simple fact. There is, however, a way to overcome the fear, and that is preparation! Once you have fully prepared yourself for how your interview will play out, it will seem a lot less intimidating. Having been recently reminded of the scary interview process, I have decided to share with you all my top ten interview tips. That way you will all hopefully be more relaxed and confident, leaving room for your lovely personalities to shine through. Keep reading to find out how I tackled my interview nerves, which ultimately got me my new job! Read more..
I’ve admittedly never tried a single Clinique product before. I’m not all too sure why that is. I think I just had this strange unfounded impression that Clinique was mega-expensive and branded for Mums/Grandmas. I’m now kicking myself for such ignorance after the amazing Clinique event at Brewin Dolphin in Cambridge a few weeks ago. On this glorious Christmas eve, get cosy and settle into my exclusive re-enactment of the event. I’ll also be (as always) revealing the VERY generous Clinique goodie bag. It’s definitely one of the most generous goodie bags I’ve ever received!!
‘Tis the season to be jolly and of course to look absolutely fabulous. We all have our absolute favourite lipsticks, but some are always placed at the top of the heap, reserved for this festive time of year. I definitely use Christmas as a fantastic excuse to crack out my boldest colours; the perfect red and the deeper, scarier shades which I’m not confident enough to wear any other time of year. Today I’ll be revealing my top five favourite festive lipsticks and why I love them so much more during the mooost wonderful tiiiiime of the yeaaaaar.
The Ely Christmas Cracker was my first local blogger event EVER. I was a newbie once again but I was so excited to meet some lovely, like-minded local bloggers. Even better, it was an amazingly festive event (and we all know how much I loooooove anything Christmassy). It was pretty nerve wracking to begin with, but we got chatting and had an amazing day out at the Ely Christmas fair. We also had a mooch around some lovely independent shops in Ely, some I’d never experienced before. Keep reading to find out more! Read more..
It’s October! & do you know what that means? Clothes glorious clothes! Autumn/Winter fashion is my absolute favourite because I love the versatility and the layers upon layers which you can play with. I’ve decided to compile an Autumn Wishlist for 2016 in order to share with you all what I’m eyeing up this season. I maaaay have already caved and bought a few pieces, the temptation just became too much!
I’m having a pretty rough week due to a sudden attack of illness. I’ve been saving this post for a week just like this, at a time where I’m feeling down and want to make myself and the world more beautiful. I’m really excited to talk to you guys about Gerard Cosmetics lipstick, specifically the two which I bought; Rodeo Drive and Tequila Sunrise. I’ve heard fantastic things over the last few months about this brand so I couldn’t resist having a sneaky peak. Having already tried Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day setting spray, I knew that the quality is fantastic. Looking at their lipstick range I was so enticed by the gorgeous gold packaging that I couldn’t resist!!! But I’m getting ahead of myself…
