ELVI picks for Winter 2018 *

2018 has definitely been the year that I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone with my blog. I started to dip my toes into some beauty related posts all the way back in January, which have continued sporadically throughout the year because as it turns out, I actually quite enjoy it (and I’m not as […]

OD’s Designer Clothing: Winter picks for the whole family *

Winter is the perfect time to re-vamp your wardrobe, get yourself some new items which will last until next Spring rolls around and even treat yourself – it’s Christmas after all! Winter is my favourite time of year and I love wrapping up warm, big fluffy jumpers, wearing boots again and just generally feeling really […]

Autumn red ft. xylondon *

Now before I get started, I just want to explain that the photos in this post don’t accurately reflect what I was trying to get at. I’ve been lucky enough to work with xylondon twice before, on a Spring and a Summer post. The next logical step would be Autumn, right? But 2018 continues to […]

Superdrug Simply Pure with Calming Soothex range

It’s been many a month since I’ve had any sort of proper skincare routine. I tend to get the odd few products for my birthday or for Christmas, use them and then not bother re-purchasing or buying new skincare until my next birthday rolls around. I know that sounds really stingy and in a way, […]

Organising your bedroom will not only help you keep it clean and tidy, it will also help you to feel more calm and in control of your own life. Having clean and tidy surroundings should help your mind to feel more clear, not to mention the fact it will make going about your day to […]

Chemist4u Beauty Advent Calendars *

Advent calendars are without a doubt one of the best things about Christmas. Even as an adult, my Mum still buys me a chocolate advent calendar every year to enjoy in the lead up to Christmas. Although she does buy the dog one as well so there’s that. Before I started blogging, I didn’t think […]

Autumn staples for your wardrobe & home *

I might not be the most fashionable person but like most people, I am a person that loves Autumn. The weather, the colours, the changing of the seasons and the new energies that a new season brings – ugh, I love it all! Although Winter will always have my heart as my favourite season, Autumn […]

Latest in Beauty: Beauty Guru Subscription Box *

I think subscription boxes are one of the most common things you see being reviewed on blogs these days. From beauty, food, books and even period care boxes, there seems to be a subscription box for absolutely anything you could possibly want. Beauty subscription boxes are certainly the most popular of the lot with the […]

Soultree Ayurvedic Kajal Eyeliners *

Ever since I was 12 or 13 years old and entered my “grunger” phase of life, I have loved eyeliner. Granted, my eyeliner looks have changed quite dramatically over the years and whilst I no longer look like a literal panda, I do still enjoy using eyeliners of different brands and shades. I mostly only […]

Uppersole Wish List *

I love shoes. I’m not a huge fashionista (okay it’s clear by the fact that I just used the word ‘fashionista’ that I’m not one at all) but I do love shoes. I think they can totally make an outfit, jazz it up or tone it down and I also think shoes can give a […]

Your Time is Now: ADEXE AW18 Collection *

Today I’m fortunate enough to team up with ADEXE to share with you a beautiful watch from their new range, as part of their Your Time is Now campaign. Before I get into nattering away about the watch itself, I wanted to discuss the theme of time and owning the time you have. Because not only […]

My essentials for a weekend away *

I love short breaks away – especially staycations. I rarely go on long, lavish holidays anymore, instead opting for a weekend here and a few days there in different parts of the U.K (although if I had the means to, I definitely would treat myself to a lavish holiday somewhere nice!) However I’ve learnt that […]

The lazy girl’s approach to skincare ft. Eyevage

Skincare is something most of us think about daily and something that has definitely become more of an importance in our general upkeep and even within our self-care routines. I don’t have a particularly fascinating past when it comes to my skin and skincare; as a teenager, my skin was okay with no major problems, […]

Mockberg Women’s Alicia Watch ft. First Class Watches

Watches can be a real statement piece of jewelry and fashion and I believe that everyone should own a really nice watch at least once in their life. I’ve been through my fair share; nothing expensive or fancy by certainly watches that highlighted my style at the time (which was Grunger chic – 16 year-old me […]

Skinirvana Original Formula Beauty Oil

Facial oils have always been a bit hit-and-miss with me. Possibly because I’ve never taken the time to learn how and when to use them properly and possibly because I’ve never found one that’s right for me. I’ve used plenty in the past that just made my face look greasy AF which wasn’t a good […]

PAIRFUM body wash & body lotion product review

I love trying new products and having a blog has allowed me to try a whole range of products which I probably wouldn’t have heard of before, which I’m very grateful for. PAIRFUM is a chic collection of organic products, which range from skincare to candles, room sprays and more. With quite a focus on […]

Ann’s Cottage Surf Shop wish-list

When I was 14 (or 15, somewhere around that age) I was invited by my school to go on a surfing holiday to Cornwall because I was such a good student, with great attendance. If that doesn’t give you a glimpse of what I was like at school, I don’t know what does but it […]
