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 […]

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 – […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cool for the Summer ft. Indigo Herbs

For me, Summer is definitely a time to make sure I can feel as good as possible. It’s no secret that I actually hate Summer; I cant handle the heat, it makes me anxious and often leaves me feeling ill. I also don’t enjoy sneezing 400 times a day and being a general snotty mess […]

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 […]

Caketoppers cupcakes review

If you get an email asking if you’d like to review cupcakes, you’re going to say yes. So when Caketoppers * emailed me and asked if I’d like to try and review some of their cupcakes, I said yes. Obviously. I love food and I’m certainly not going to turn down an opportunity to test some […]

Stepping into Spring with xylondon

I think Spring is a great time to spruce things up. Whether that’s your blog layout, a new hair cut, a re-decorated bedroom or a new wardrobe, Spring is a great time to jump into things head first. New beginnings and all that jazz. I always feel super motivated and inspired as Spring hits (apart […]

Back to basics with the Old English Company

Let me list a few things that I like; stationery, homeware, quotes and typography. I mean of course I like more than just those 4 things but for the sake of this post, let’s just stick with those four. So when Old English Company reached out to me about a potential collaboration, a company who […]

The all-in-one beauty product you need in your routine

I’m always up for trying new products but the thing about me is that I hate having too much “stuff”. If you know me from Twitter, you’ll know I’m a constant cleaner / sorter-outer and I hate keeping anything unnecessary. I hate having more than what I need (I guess you could say I have […]
