A Year in Reflection | 2015

The most cliche way to start this post is to say 'I can't quite believe how quick this year has gone' but it's the truth.  Now we're on the last day. Scary stuff. I wanted to do a roundup of the year so in a few years back I can actually see how I truly felt about it, rather than remember it solely based on sweet nostalgia.

Skincare Additions

My skin is going through a bit of a rough patch right now. I'm even under the watchful eye of the doctors because I'm that desperate. Comparing myself to a pizza or even a Dalmatian is something that happens more often than not lately. While my prescriptions aren't really going to give any tell tale signs of the miracle they're hopefully performing at the moment, the recent skincare purchases I've made seem to be pointing my skin in the right direction.

2016 Goals | Blogging & Life

Christmas is pretty much over now and that means the New Year is officially on it's way. I'll probably be seeing it in from the comfort of my home in a pair of fluffy pyjamas that my parents got me. While that fact will probably never change (I swear I was born with a grandma's mind), the goals I set for myself change each year. I thought I'd do a little run down on here, after all writing it down somewhere is hopefully going to motivate me to achieve them!

Merry Christmas

It's the 23rd of December and that officially means the Christmas period is very much here. I'm feeling a little bit more festive now, although if you don't then don't worry about it. I have a post right here about why it's okay not to feel festive.

Festive Nail Polish

nail polish
You'll rarely find a slick of nail polish on my nails but seeing as I have three days off over the festive period (weep) I have to take every opportunity I can get. I'm pretty appalling at applying the stuff, which is probably why I don't wear it, but practice makes perfect right?

Last Minute Gift Guide

last minute gift guide

Christmas is always a little overwhelming for me. I feel like there's a lot of pressure on, essentially, one day of the year. Maybe it's because everyone seems to be super organised and they know exactly what to get for the loved ones in their lives. Me? I have no clue. I wing it when it comes to present buying. I'm not one for gift guides usually but I decided to make an exception, so if you're stuck, you're welcome (they're not too pricey either).

Concealers for Every Job

Concealers are a step I can't skip. If the bags under my eyes aren't making an appearance thanks to a good nights sleep, then I can certainly count on my skin to misbehave. I thought a roundup of my favourites in my collection was needed.

Highstreet Brands I Trust

I'm a high end coveter, and I will make endless wishlists of MAC eyeshadows I want, but the highstreet brands are one I'm familiar with, so much so I can now impart my wisdom onto any friends that will happily listen and take my advice (HI Sophie, if you're reading this). I thought I'd do a little round up of the brands from the good ol' highstreet I trust.

Sunday, 13 December 2015


Sundays mean two things for me. 1) I've got 3 days off work and 2) I can happily pamper myself to my hearts content because I fully intend on being lazy. Now my small array of products are more aimed for my bath time pamper sesh but even so, they make me feel like I'm taking care of myself just a little bit better than I normally do.

Why it's Okay to Not Feel Festive


Everyone is decking their halls and putting up their Christmas trees, and I feel a bit like Scrooge sat in the corner. I am excited for Christmas, and I want to be in the festive spirit but I realise the more I force it, the more it ain't going to happen. If you're feeling a little bit like me, I thought I'd reassure you that what you feel is a-okay and here's why.

Changing My Mind

Do you ever just change your mind on some things randomly one day after giving them that last go? I kind of enjoy being proven wrong when I'm only proving myself wrong. What better way is there to celebrate my wrongness with a post?

Project: Use Up

I can justify many things but buying £100 of makeup a month when I have loads to use up, makes little to no sense to me. I'm exceptionally useless at using something up. I mean when a new product comes along it just sets off a whole new love affair. Project: Use Up isn't my idea, Charline can take full credit for that, but I do love the concept and when my Muji trays are full to the brim, well a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

Life Lately #2

Where to start? A lot has happened in a short space of time and I'm feeling excited/nervous/'what the heck is happening in the universe to make me feel this happy?'. Last year in comparison was a pretty awful time, and life has definitely done a 180.

Christmas Wishlist 2015

It's December. Santa is officially on his way and I'm very much listening to Ariana Grande sing 'Santa Tell Me' on repeat. Family members keep asking me what I want to which I reply 'I don't know' which results in a very tired sigh or a death stare. I'm notoriously hard to shop for, but I figured I'd throw together a quick list of things I want, to stop the questions and also to hint to James exactly which Charlotte Tilbury eye shadow palette I want.

December Goals

Today marks the first day of December and no matter how cliche it is to say it, it still rings true. Hasn't this year flown by? I feel like I've added 5 years onto my mental age by saying that. I thought after a little bit of a blogging break a goals post would be very welcome. Hopefully it can become a regular occurrence around these parts. Anyway, let me tell you my goals for this month.

- Buy all your Christmas gifts for everyone

- Finally read the Harry Potter books

- Post every other day for Jodie Loue

- Start Yoga with Adrienne and actually do it 3 times a week (at least)

- Stop picking your skin once and for all

- Write to-do lists for every day of the week

What are your December goals?
