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 […]

We are all made up of all of us: Living DNA Ancestry Testing *

When I was in school, I had a friend who’s Mum was really interested in ancestry and every time I went round her house, her Mum was always on various ancestry websites, looking back over their family tree and trying to find out more about where they came from. It always piqued my interest and […]

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, […]

Hugo’s Chocolate Club: Chocolate Subscription Box *

We’ve had beauty subscription boxes, time of the month subscription boxes and stationery subscription boxes. There’s pretty much a subscription box for anything you could possibly want these days. Today I’m featuring a subscription box (you’d probably guessed that already otherwise all this talk of subscription boxes has been pretty pointless) that caters for those […]

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 […]

Biscuiteers Fruit Basket Biscuit Tin *

Every now and again an email will land in my inbox which I don’t entirely believe was meant for me. And until I make sure it’s actually addressed to “Jenny” and not “Jessica” that super big powerhouse of a blogger do I let myself believe it. Biscuiteers are a brand I’ve seen everywhere online – […]

Disney x Books with The Book People *

There’s two things that you should already know about me. 1) I love Disney. I love Disney with all my heart. I’ve grown up with Disney, I have a Disney related blog name, a Disney tattoo and I never listen to regular music – just Disney songs (okay that’s a white lie but I do […]

Chill day at home essentials *

Over the last 6 years or so, I’ve started spending most of my time at home. There’s a bunch of reasons for why this is which I’m not going to go into but going from a teenager who was basically never at home, to someone who spends most of their time there, it’s a pretty […]

A picture is worth a thousand words, with Tesco Photo *

I’ve always loved personalized items and gifts and when it comes to Christmas or birthdays, if I can get someone personalized I absolutely will. I was keen to try out the Tesco Photo service, when they contacted me, despite shopping in Tesco more or less every week for my entire life, I didn’t actually know […]

Appleyard London Citrus Coulis Bouquet Review *

I don’t think there’s a person in the world that wouldn’t agree that fresh flowers can bright up any drab room. Although I don’t personally buy flowers too often (I have such bad allergies that I do try and avoid having anything with leaves in my bedroom!) my Mum always has, ever since I can […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Organii: Natural, Vegan and Cruelty-Free products for the whole family

I love trying new products and when those products are cruelty-free, natural and Vegan, that’s even better. You’ll know that I’m not Vegan myself but I am actively trying to cut down the meat I’m eating and I’m really interested in looking into dairy-alternatives soon too. But I always think that any small way to […]
