Monthly roundup: March

Friday, 31 March 2017




Seriously, where has March gone?! It certainly seems to have been the quickest month we've had so far. I've been so busy this month with Uni assignments my blog has had to take a back seat. Lucky for me I managed to get a load of posts scheduled at the beginning of the month so the posts have still been coming twice a week! I'm so happy I've stuck with my schedule for 3 months now!

Not a lot happened in March, I've hung out with friends and been getting organised for my final 2nd year assignments at uni. At the beginning of the month I had the most amazing day at Derby Day - the universitys annual sports day if you like. Every year we play arch rivals Essex in every sport and it's such a fun day. I played netball which was such an intense game but we came out with the win, then enjoyed the rest of the day in the sunshine drinking - so many good vibes!!

I'm now back home for 4 weeks for Easter, and as much as I'd like to focus on my blog, I have 4 essays to write along with working practically full time and socialising with my loved ones in between! I hate having to put blogging to the backburner but hopefully I can rustle together a few posts to keep the schedule going!! Not much is planned for April, apart from work work work in every sense!

What did you get up to this month? What have you got planned for April?

Review: Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter

Tuesday, 28 March 2017


When highlighters became all the rage last year, I questioned quite how I was surviving with only 2 in my collection. Off I went into town I get myself a third to start building my collection.

Top tips for keeping organised

Friday, 24 March 2017




I need a lot of organisation in my life, whether it's to do with blogging, uni work or just life in general. I need to know what's happening, when it's happening, when it needs to be done by and everything else in between. In that sense, I am the least laid back person ever, but it works out alright. I thought I'd round up for you my top tips for keeping organised, they seem to work out for me!

Review: The UniBox*

Tuesday, 21 March 2017


As you know, I'm a second year Geography student, and when I heard about The Unibox*, I knew I wanted to give it a try! I love the idea of all subscription boxes, but one catered especially for students? Perfect!

I am in luuuurve with this dress. Not only is it from Primark, I got it in the SALE from Primark! I can't actually remember how much I got it for, but it was £12 at full price which is already such a bargain!!

Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

Tuesday, 14 March 2017

I've been slowly making my way through the drugstore foundations over the last few years, working out what ones are worthwhile and what are not so much. Next on my list was the Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation!

I am so so SO happy with how these snaps turned out. Jamie and I ventured down to Shotley front a few days after Storm Doris hit and braved the winds and cold, and I am so glad we did. The shots came out beautifully, don't you think?!

Review: NYX soft matte lipsticks

Tuesday, 7 March 2017



Another day another review! Today I'm telling you all about the NYX soft matte lips. NYX, although raved about a lot over the blogosphere, is a new discovery for me! I can tell it's soon going to be one of my favourite high street makeup brands though.

The Shirt Dess

Sunday, 5 March 2017


These photos remind me of the good old days of blogging where I would stand in my room in front of my tripod snapping away. Nowadays, most of the time I'll drag Jamie out for location shots! What do you prefer? Indoor outfit shots or out and about on locations?

A day of shopping

Friday, 3 March 2017

About a month ago, one of my bezzies came up to Norwich to do a bit of shopping to celebrate her Birthday. Having modelled for her in A-Level photography projects a few years ago, I thought it was time I roped her into taking some outfit snaps for me!
