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 […]

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.

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 – […]

I love my sleep and I always have done and although I love getting up early, a quality night’s sleep is really important to me to be able to function. The days of going to bed at 4am and waking up at noon are long gone (so has my carefree, fun attitude but there you […]

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.

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.

I mostly only […]
