So...? New fragrances

Tuesday, 28 November 2017

So…? bring back an array of feelings from my high school days. Back in high school P.E. body spray from the likes of So..? and Charlie were the shizzle. If you were spotted with one of those beauties, you were sure to be the most popular girl of the day.

As I’ve grown, body sprays have slowly been replaced by the more sophisticated perfumes. When So…? offered to send me some scents from their new perfume range I jumped at the chance. As a student I can’t exactly afford the Marc Jacobs and Chanel scents and your gal has got to keep smelling fresh one way or another.

Home Sweet Home

Friday, 24 November 2017

I felt a bit lost not posting an outfit on my blog last week - I've got myself into my own little routine of posting an outfit every Friday and because I had friends up the weekend before last, and didn't see Jamie, so I didn't have my fantastic little photographer to shoot with. I'm so happy to have them back though, especially with a bunch of photos which could be some of my favourite yet. I've decided a bold lip automatically makes outfit photos 10 times better.

These photos just seemed to turn out so right, from the get go. It's very rare that I can shoot an outfit and be this happy with the results. 9 out of 10 times an outfit photo shoot ends up being 40 minutes long and in me being in a strop and Jamie having to deal with that. But this time, we were done and dusted within 10 minutes. If only all blogging photography was that easy!!

Pink Parcel

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

Last week I took part in an instagram collaboration with Pink Parcel. Pink Parcel are a subscription box (I know what you're thinking, not another one) with a bit of a twist. They're not your typical beauty box, although they can have a few beauty related goodies in, they're actually a subscription service for when you're on your period. Absolutely genius.

My new favourite moisturiser

Friday, 17 November 2017

I'm not one to spend a lot on skincare. In fact, I try to avoid the high end brands. Currently the only slightly pricier items I have in my skincare collection is the Pixi Cleansing Balm (£18), and the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£15) which I asked for as a gift. Looking at these now, they're not the most expensive out there, but for a student on a budget, they're not your typical Garnier Cleansing Water that will cost you a fiver and last you a lifetime.

The importance of treating yourself

Tuesday, 14 November 2017

In life, I think one very important aspect is treating ourselves once in a while. Each of us are busy people, leading busy, and often very stressful lives. Without a treat once in a while I wonder how we would function properly. Now, I'm a student - while I wish treating myself was whisking myself off for a mini break to somewhere exotic, quite often it's simply having a lie in. And that's perfectly fine, and absolutely brilliant.

Bright Stripes

Friday, 10 November 2017

Christmas is officially on its way. The scarves and gloves have come out for winter and I feel like this week we've finally got that crisp chill in the air. I kinda love it kinda hate it. I don't do well with cold but I bloody love a bit of Christmas spirit. I really should start my Christmas shopping. I'm not one to leave it until last minute usually but uni might get in the way of that this year. One year I will be one of those super organised people and have all my Christmas shopping done by November, just not this year.

5 ways to get into a better headspace

Tuesday, 7 November 2017

Some days I wake up, and I feel a little bit shitty. No particular reason for it, other than hormones maybe! My headspace isn't great and I don't feel up to talking to people or getting anything done. Having a horrible headspace is something I've accepted now - it happens from time to time and I've come up with a few little rituals or jobs I can do to help get myself out of that zone.

Cobbled Streets

Friday, 3 November 2017

Outfit posts are definitely my favourite kind of posts to both read and share - as much as I love the odd bit of beauty and lifestyle, I feel like fashion is where my heart is at and something I really love sharing, even if I'm not the most fashionable person 24/7 (damn you netball 5 training 5 times a week!). There's just something about getting new clothes, or putting on a different outfit that you feel banging in, it's something I'll always have a love for.
