I’ve recently fallen deep in love with Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Hairspray, so seeing my bottle quickly coming to an end, I started to imagine days weeping. 






This post is a bit late in the day but I couldn't not share these with you because they are so cute.

On the Saturday before my Birthday, Amber and I headed to Zaza's St Albans for a pre-Birthday lunch.

Last week I popped this little Christmas penguin bubble bar into the bath and was whisked into bubble heaven!

It's Glossybox time again, this month's theme is 'Back To Basics' and Glossybox has had a makeover.

I was busy thinking of new features and ways to switch up the ‘Weekly Wants’ posts. I wanted to do something colour themed and a little different and then I though: birth stones! I celebrate a birthday in January, which makes my birth stone Garnet, a beautiful deep red stone. So I thought I’d pick some of my best items from the colour stone of each month. I think this might get a bit difficult as months go on, but for now, Garnet is the perfect winter shade and I've picked out some red/burgundy items to add to my collection!

Yesterday Bobbi Brown announced the launch of the VIP preview for the Bobbi Brown ‘Uber Pink Collection’. With the tag line ‘Be Bold. Be Pretty.’ the collection consists of eight items, including four limited edition items.

And the LUSH obsession begins…

For the last three years I’d been studying at University and our little flat didn’t have a bath, so it was a shower-only scenario! Now we’ve left Southampton and we have a bath I’m in love with bath products all over again. Which is fairly apt as LUSH have launched their special Valentine’s Day collection, swoon! I’ve taken the liberty of informing you of the special bits and pieces, I take no responsibility in any purchases that happen afterwards!

January's Birchbox follows a New Year theme in the notion of 'Tiny Tweaks'.

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to try OPI Nail Envy, everyone talks about it, everyone raves about it. It always seemed so expensive and I’ve always love my current base coats so I’ve never splashed out.

I’m back again with another 5:2 update for you guys, this week was my second day on the plan, read below for my food diary, thoughts, feelings and weigh in!

I’ve been reading quite a ‘2014 Beauty Wishlist’ posts and I quite like seeing what people most want to try in 2014. So I thought I’d write my own list of products I’d love to try. Then in 2015 (that’s scary) I’ll come back and review what I managed to try and whether it was worth the wishing. So let’s kick this off:

I got this super cute dinky set from my sister for Christmas, it's the Best Dressed Nails Collection. I asked her for it because it contains lots of the Nails Inc special effect nail polishes, which I wanted to try! Luckily although some of them are similar none of them are the same as the Nails Inc Nail Polish Diary that I purchased in the January sales!

I recently came across the website ‘Fields Of Blue’ and instantly fell in love, it’s packed full of cute home goodies, from furniture to accessories. I thought I’d share with you guys some of my favourite picks.

I've never been so excited as when my beautiful friend Amber passed me a Sephora bag with a special Christmas gift inside. She went to New York for her 21st Birthday and bought this all the way home for me!

I’m a big fan of Marc Jacobs, from the detailing on the bottles to the scents inside, I’m totally hooked. Many a time I’ve browsed the perfume section and I literally love everything single scent that he makes!

2013 was a real year of experimenting and discovering new beauty products for me, it was the year I tried new brands and new products and really branched out. I took time to really learn about beauty, taking in facts and figures every day. It sounds silly but I think I learnt a lot about beauty and makeup in 2013! So I thought it was only fair that I shared my favourite products from 2013 with you guys…

So last week I promised I’d come back and update you on my progress following the 5:2 diet, so here we go.


Day One: Monday 6th January (Fast Day One)
Monday was my first day following the 5:2 diet plan, I’d been eating healthy since New Year’s Eve, so it wasn’t really my first day on the wagon. It was however my first ever fast day. For my first one I didn’t want to be too strict as it was going to be a shock to the system, so my first day I chose 600 calories worth of meals.

Since the Clinique 'A Different Nail Enamel' nail polishes were released I've been so eager to try them out. It was a big deal for Clinique to launch nail polish and they've been on my wish list for a long time.

Since I’ve started work I really don’t have time to watch much television anymore. Which is a shame because as an ex-television student, I obviously have a passion for television production and I love to stay up-to-date. However, recently I’ve been recording my shows and watching them later on and I’ve fallen in love with a couple which I thought I’d share with you.

This post is definitely a little late as Christmas has well and truly passed but I wanted to share with you this cute Christmas Bauble from Origins.

Read the magazine online here

If you’re anything like me, when you pop into Boots you pick up a copy of their Health and Beauty Magazine! The best part of it is, that with your advantage card you pick up a copy absolutely free and if you don’t have a card it’s only £1 to buy. I really enjoy reading the magazine, it’s packed full of beauty ideas and tips, plus new releases in Boots!

I picked up the The Nails Inc Nail Polish Diary online in the John Lewis sale, I'm so glad I'm waited to purchase this as I nearly purchased it full price, but I picked it up for a tiny £21!
