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!

Having white silver hair is bloody fantastic, I won’t lie. However, there are unfortunately some downsides; the upkeep is incredibly high maintenance and bleach is undeniably terrible for your hair. I’m incredibly luck to have been graced with naturally thick hair, but it’s condition has definitely deteriorated over the last year since I began the bleaching process. It can be so dry, brittle and even goes as far as snapping if I put too much stress on it – eeek! In December 2016 I’d finally had enough and began researching how to better look after my hair (without having to give up my bleach addiction). I was thankfully contacted soon after by Urtekram about their 100% organic shampoo and conditioner. So did it revive my damaged hair? Keep reading to find out more!
It’s the beginning of 2017 and we are all looking forward with the hopes of an even bigger and brighter year than the last. I’m sure that when we look back at 2016 there are just as many good memories as there are bad ones (although Brexit, Trump and the deaths of so many talented stars may cause you to question this). Something I worry about is the possibility of forgetting the smaller, happier moments in life. The moments which made you truly grateful to be alive. The Moments Journal aims to ensure that you don’t forget these important day-to-day details by encouraging you to record and appreciate each and every single one. Intriguing right?

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.
A little while ago I received the loveliest surprise email in my inbox. It was an invitation to attend a blogging event to celebrate the first birthday of Rush Hair salon in Cambridge. Having been at University for the last few years I hadn’t yet had the pleasure of visiting Rush Hair, but I’m well aware of their amazing reputation nonetheless. I was beyond excited to attend this meet up, in fact I couldn’t send my acceptance response quick enough! I think I was so worried I’d been invited by mistake I thought if I dashed in their quickly they would feel too awkward to un-invite me!! Of course that wasn’t the case but it’s so new to me to be invited to wonderful things like this. In this post I’ll be talking about the wonderful event at Rush Hair salon. I’ll also be giving you all an exclusive peak into the Rush Hair goodie bag, the goodie bag I almost forgot… More on that later.
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..
Although this may seem a tad eager, would you believe it if I told you it’s only seven Mondays until Christmas!? So with that in mind, I’ve started to have a think about present ideas – both for myself and for others. For my best friends and my partner it’s a piece of cake. I’ve got this in the bag (or the stocking… which ever way you prefer). I know exactly what they like. However, I struggle to think of amazing gifts for the same group of people each and every single year. My parents, the in-laws and other extended friends and family. I want to put so much thought into each present, but when they’re picky about what they like it’s an impossible task. I can only buy so many framed photographs of myself before I begin to look conceited.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a PR company who had some interesting Christmas gifts from Veet and Scholl which they wanted me to review. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity! Side note – I am totally and completely honoured to have received this opportunity by such renowned and established brands. This is a very proud moment for yours truly.
