Yankee Candle Waikiki Melon

Before we start, lets have a little catch up of my many illnesses, shall we? My Tonsillitis is on it’s way out thanks to the antibiotics but I might just have impetigo.. WTF? I mentioned the breakout I recently suffered from, right? Well I had a breakout on my cheek and a small scratch near [...]

#StyleAtAnySize – Pastel Leather Jacket

This week was one I was really looking forward to, I love this pink biker jacket! As you know I’ve been looking for a faux leather pastel coloured one for a while so this was perfect but something about the cut of this just isn’t quite right on me. In the video I said I [...]

Feeling Blue? How About A Giveaway?

In these photos I was feeling the opposite of blue.. (red?)  I was the picture of health and current me hates past me a little right now for that. You know (because I wont stop complaining about it) that I’ve been under the weather, well today I found out it’s Tonsillitis.. great! I have medication [...]

Slimming World

I’ve had people telling me for a the longest time that I should try Slimming World, I’ve tried calorie counting (with success) but wasn’t really interested in any actual diets. Last week I was talking on twitter about losing weight and Emma (check out her instagram here) offered to send me her old starter pack, [...]

Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders

I’ve spoken about my love of Ole Henriksen products before but they’re expensive and I don’t like to recommend something not so affordable unless I think it’s really going to be worth your money. I’ve been using these 3 products off and on since Christmas and thus far have had nothing but positive experiences with [...]

Shirt? Check!

 I wear this outfit ALL THE TIME, I can’t believe it’s never made it to my blog! The shirt it long so I can wear it with leggings and avoid the obscene oversharing situation and BONUS.. it doesn’t need ironing. With a pair of ankle boots I’d wear this for work (it’s a casual office) [...]

4 Years Of Blogging / My Holy Grail Products

First things first – I would be on my death bed right now if I didn’t have children – I’m hot, cold and ache EVERYWHERE but the kids will not allow lie ins on a bank holiday so 7.30 in the garden it was. I just snatched a moment to say hi from my computer [...]

#StyleAtAnySize – Brights

I really wasn’t sure about this one – I feel like I say that every week – but when I looked back at the pictures I’m actually loving it. The colour is so not me and I NEVER wear bold prints like this but Emma and I agreed when we kicked off this series that [...]

Coat – H&M / Jumper – M&S / Joni Jeans – Topshop / Bag – Zara Mini Shopper / Slipper Shoes – New Look Last night I was on twitter and came across a picture of this yellow coat from H&M.. it reminded me immediately of this picture of the beautiful Olivia Palermo I’d seen [...]

A Beautiful Thing

 I LOVE highlight products, they’re by far the most beautiful that I own and this is no exception. In the pan it’s beautifully reflective and impossible to capture on film. I haven’t tried much from Illamasqua but their Gleams always appealed, cream highlights I’ve tried in the past have tended to be a little more [...]

Sleek Brow Stylist

 I have sung the praises of the Smashbox Browtech To Go for almost a year now and in that time I’ve received A LOT of recommendations for cheaper alternatives but none so many as this guy. Unlike some others (which I’ll be honest, I assume I wont like regardless of some of you insisting otherwise) [...]

Ready For Summer?

So… after my gym bag post the other day I was looking for fitness videos online and much as I’d like to switch it up.. I’m going back the shred. I know it works, it’s hard in my knees but i can do it and it’s short. If you don’t know what I’m talking about [...]

Makeup Revolution – The New MUA?

I’ve been seeing tweets and instagrams flash up all week about this brand and I DID take a look at their site and almost place an order but when I saw yesterday that Superdrug had launched the brand online I caved. The lipsticks start from just £1 and the palettes (which are dead ringers for [...]

olivia wilde ombre hair crush 2014

Current Hair Crush

I’m at a cross roads with my hair right now, the top and bottom are still totally different colours and I’m fairly certain that the only way to fix that will be a dark colour all over and I HATE the flat look a block colour gives. My main issue is that the ends are [...]

Like Dominoes

Another outfit from our trip, this was one of the warmer spots in the park. It was pretty grey an miserable while we were there but it brightened up for a minute so we took some pictures.. I spent half of the holiday chasing Milo around to get a good one of him with his [...]

Organic Surge Orange Flower Toner

This is one of the only products I’ve tried from Organic Surge that don’t like. There are plenty that I’d happily use but wouldn’t buy again, a few I absolutely love but no others that I can think of that I really didn’t get along with.. but I just couldn’t make this work for me. [...]

Sleek Blush – Suede

 I could have reviewed this months ago but I know some people are picky over swatching vs ‘on face’ shots (why does everything I say sound like an innuendo?) so I put it off until I had one. I’m so excited for light mornings cause it means I can photograph makeup as I wear it [...]

#StyleAtAnySize – Floral

I loved this weeks outfit and in truth when it arrived I wasn’t sure that I would. I’ve never worn a shift dress before and it was somehow snug yet still shapeless on me but a belt fixed that minor issue and I can now see myself wearing it a lot. The material has a [...]
