Forever in Blue Jeans

For me, 2017 has been the year of Personal style. As a huge fashion lover, I have followed print and digital fashion publications from a very young age. I have always had a keen interest in reading about the latest trend pieces and seasonal style predictions. However, even with all the outfit inspiration under the sun, I found it extremely difficult to refine my very own personal style. This was until I stumbled upon The Curated Closet. The Curated Closet by Anushka Rees is a style guide  ...

She wore Rouge Velvet…

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas, well, actually it has looked a lot like Christmas since mid-October but you get the idea. I swear the lead up to the festive season seems to begin earlier as the years go by. As I mentioned in my previous winter beauty post, around this time of year I tend to have a little reshuffle of my makeup bag. For me, this usually results in switching out nude lip shades for winterberry tones. I also tend to substitute my current foundation with  ...

Autumn / Winter Skincare Saviours

During the winter months with chilly days and cold air, I feel that my skin begins to lack two things – luminosity and hydration. Therefore, as I mentioned in my recent glowing skin post – I tend to switch up my beauty routine accordingly. Over the years I have come to realise that having a good base to work with makes makeup application a breeze. It also makes me feel that bit more confident on non-makeup days too.  As I have just recently switched up my skincare routine, I  ...

What the Hygge? Homeware Edit

If you are a bit like me and tend to jump on all of the trendy internet bandwagons you may already be aware of the of the term “Hygge”. So what is Hygge? Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga – I think) is a Danish term used to describe an atmosphere/experience – a feeling of coziness, comfort and content. For example, you might experience Hygge whilst listening to some sweet crackling vinyl, or when sipping on a big mug of tea after a long winters day. You might also experience  ...

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

Please forgive me for what I am about to say but… I am not the biggest fan of pumpkin spice lattes. Initially, when Starbucks first released this cult coffee, I bought into the hype and jumped right on that Autumnal bandwagon. However, to be completely honest I really don’t think they are worth the crazy hype and find them to be a little too sweet. So, with this being said, this year I thought I would try my hand at making my very own pumpkin spice inspired winter drink –  one  ...

Barry M Fall in Love Palette Review

Barry M Fall in Love As I have mentioned in previous posts, when it comes to autumnal beauty products, I just can’t get enough of em’! So far, A/W 2017 has been filled with an abundance of exciting new beauty launches from the Rihanna’s fab Fenti line to Loreal’s beautiful Balmain collaboration. However, over the past few weeks, there has been one product that particulalry caught my eye – The Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. Upon first spotting press  ...

Bloggers Guilt and Silver Linings

As you may have spotted on my Instagram or Twitter, over the past few weeks I have been plagued by some sort of demon super flu. I don’t usually get colds or sickness bugs all that often but when I do they seem to come with full force. First came a few days of sickness and fever, then two weeks of sinus headaches and congestion. Three weeks on and I am finally beginning to see the light of this never-ending virus of doom (ok that is a tad dramatic). Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is  ...

My Fitness Journey

My Fitness Journey If you have been following me for a while, you will know that fitness is not something I have ever discussed on my blog and to be completely honest, I never thought I would. After trying various (big and scary) commercial gyms in the past I had concluded that working out just wasn’t for me. However, since biting the bullet and signing up for my first ever Bootcamp with AG Fitness earlier this year, my attitude towards fitness and exercise has changed completely.  ...

My Personal Style Journey – An Update

As a huge fashion lover, I love reading pretty much anything style related from outfit of the day blog posts to articles on seasonal trends and high street fashion finds. However, over the past few years, I have become increasingly intrigued by the idea of personal style and how it can be defined. Since my teens, I have always had a rough idea of the general vibe I like to go for. However reading “The Curated Closet” by the wonderful Anuschka Rees has really helped me to define  ...

10 Beauty Products I will always Repurchase

With more products available than ever before and shiny new beauty bits being released on the daily, shopping for makeup and skincare can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Therefore, prior to purchasing,  I tend to ask for recommendations from friends and search for reviews online. I love hearing about the products that people use and love. I’m also especially intrigued by the products that they repurchase time and time again. I feel like this says a lot about a product –  ...

The Dreamy Stationery Post

September 2017 marks the first year that I will not be returning to any educational institution. To be honest the thought of this is pretty daunting. For some strange reason, I am really missing university at the moment and those post graduation blues have well and truly kicked in. However, there is one particular “back to school” ritual that I  missing the most – stationery shopping. Yep, I have no shame, I am a self-confessed stationary enthusiast / hoarder.  I’m almost  ...

Advice to my Younger Self – Blogger Edition

So, as you may have read in my latest post, this month marks my 1 year Blogiversary. How crazy! It feels like yesterday that I purchased by domain and hit publish on my very first post. However, although I’ve been posting for one year, I have actually been reading blogs for a lot longer. Therefore, creating my very own has been something that I have always wanted to do, and boy am I glad I did! Over the past year, I have documented some pretty cool life events from attending my bucket  ...

Zoella Beauty Jelly and Gelato Review + My Blogiversary!

When I think back to the inspiration behind starting my blog, there is one person that comes to mind. Yep, that’s right, Zoella. Although this may be considered very “cliche” statement, it is oh so very true. From the age of 17, I have read Zoe’s (beautiful) blog and watched her videos. During this time, I have witnessed the inception and growth of her untouchable brand empire. I feel that Zoe is the perfect example of someone who “Believed she could, so she did”. To me, that is  ...

Not Your Average Beauty Box – Introducing Tili

When it comes to beauty boxes, I have some mixed feelings. On one hand, I love the idea of receiving a stash of magical mystery items as it allows me to try out new products and brands. However, on the other hand,  I really enjoy having a sneak peek at the products I will be receiving (and paying for). This helps to avoid potential disappointment and eliminates the surprise of crazy wild card beauty bits like neon yellow nail polishes or multi coloured mascaras. Ain’t nobody got time  ...

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Review

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturiser Review I don’t know about you but as I am making my way through my twenties I seem to be more and more intrigued by the world of skincare.

However, there has been one particular release which I have been particularly impressed by.  The Hydro Boost Water Gel by Neutrogena. As a combination to oily skin  ...

My Glastonbury Experience 2017 – Review and Photo Diary

Glastonbury Photo Diary 2017 So, last weekend I made my way to Worthy Farm to tick off my top bucket list festival – Glastonbury. As you may have read in my most recent post, I am a huge music lover and have dreamed of attending this legendary event for years. From a young age I have watched the highlights on T.V, read all the music press headlines and felt the fomo (big time) as festival goers shared their snaps online. However, on the 22nd of June 2017, my awesome friend Lottie and  ...

Soundtrack to Summer 2017

With festival season right around the corner, I have been listening to more new music than ever. There really is nothing better than a good playlist, am I right? Although I tend to post a lot of fashion and beauty related content to my blog, I am also a huge music lover. So much so that I spent four years at college / uni studying the music industry. As a total muso, I have been attending festivals year after year from a young age, however I have a feeling that summer 2017 is gonna be  ...

Escape to The Highlands – The Lookbook

  This weekend, my mum, my sister and I decided to book up a last minute trip to the highlands – and man, last minute plans really are the best kind of plans. Over the past few weeks I have been spending crazy amounts of time glued to my computer screen between work, blogging and Netflix binging (no regrets), therefore this little last minute getaway was the perfect way to detox in a digital free zone. Glencoe is probably my favourite highland hideaway, its mountain views are  ...

Jeffree Star X Manny MUA Eclipse Skin Frost If you haven’t already heard about this particular release or are new to the Jeffree Star Cosmetics brand, earlier this month Youtube beauty gurus Manny (MUA) Gutierrez and Jeffree Star teamed up to release their very own collaboration line which consisted of two liquid lip shades and one (swoonworthy) highlighter. As a long time viewer and huge fan of both Manny and Jeffree I was absolutely over the moon when the two revealed that they were  ...

What’s In My Bag?

In celebration of picking up this faux croc bag of dreams over the weekend, I thought it would be pretty cool to write up a little  old school style “Whats in my bag?” post. Although the concept of this is probably foreign to those out with the blogging community, I have always enjoyed taking a peek at what others carry around on the daily.  First things first –  the bag. After spying this little cross body beauty, hanging in the Aladdin’s cave that is Accessorize, I just  ...

Over the past week or so I have read so many of these tag posts and have loved hearing everyone’s take, it has been fab to get “behind the screen” and get to know some of my fellow bloggers a little bit better.

Instagram Food Tour of Glasgow

As mentioned in my recent update, my lovely friend Lottie came to  visit during the month of January. Whilst there is nothing I love more than showing visitors around my hometown and favourite city, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming – there is just so much to see! As huge foodies,  I couldn’t wait to take her on a mini food tour of the city’s amazing cafes and eateries.

Loreal Pure Clay Glow Mask Review

Pure Clay Glow Mask As mentioned in a few of my previous  posts I have really been enjoying trying out new skincare bits recently, especially specialised treatments like serums and masks. Therefore, whenever a drugstore brand releases a new skincare product I am more than keen to get my hands on them. This week, one release which caught my eye was Loreal’s range of Pure Clay masks. The range consists of three masks, which each perform various tasks. The “Purity Mask” is  ...
