Back To School Essentials with Typo

Friday, 26 August 2016

It's that time of year again. Lots of people are getting ready to go back to school, college or university. I would love to be going back to uni in September but instead I will be drowning my sorrows, as I always do, in piles of new stationary. Is there anything better than a new stationary haul? And I have just discovered Typo, which is probably the worst thing to happen to my bank balance since my discovery of NYX!

Jojoba Makeup Remover

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

This week I got sent some lovely blogger mail in the form of vegan makeup remover. I am not a vegan but I do prefer cruelty free products if the option is there. Jojoba is an Australian company that I hadn't heard of before so I was intrigued to use their product to see the quality. 

New Look Wishlist

Sunday, 21 August 2016

This weather has me feeling excited for Autumn and Winter and I always love New Look's A/W ranges. It's still not quite cold enough for jumpers just yet but jeans, shirts and thicker dresses are on the cards. I can't wait to start shopping for Autumn clothes, it's my favourite time of the year. 

Where is your favourite place to shop for A/W? Have you started your transitional wardrobe yet?

First Attempt At Macaroons

Friday, 19 August 2016

I decided with Bake Off starting back next week that I would dust off my apron and do a bit of baking this week. Macaroons are always something that I have wanted to try making but have heard so many people say they are not as easy as they look to make, I have never bothered. 

Time To Relax

Wednesday, 17 August 2016

Last week I spent more time without internet or phone reception than I did with. Oddly, I really enjoyed it. Most of the time if I can't get signal in the first 3 seconds of me picking my phone up I start to get anxious, like most of my generation, it has nearly always been around so when I don't have internet it freaks me out. 

China Glaze - EverGlaze Extended Wear

Friday, 12 August 2016

This week I received a lovely parcel from the guys China Glaze with four of their EverGlaze Extended wear nail polishes. I have never used China Glaze before but always notice the wide range in colours, so was excited to give them a try. EverGlaze boasts a gel-like result without the hassle with the staying power of up to 10 days! 

OOTD - Cocktails N Crates, Cardiff

Wednesday, 10 August 2016

Last weekend I went to Cocktails N Crates in Cardiff Speaker Hire. I don't know what I was expecting from the venue or the event itself but it was an awesome afternoon and night and everyone there had a ball! 

Boots Skincare Review

Sunday, 7 August 2016

I feel like I am always struggling with my skin. I have very oily patches but also really dry patches, couple that with break outs every couple of weeks, I am forever trying new skincare products to find one that keeps my skin balanced and at least help with breakouts.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Friday, 5 August 2016

It happened. The last instalment of Harry Potter, ever (probably), and I couldn't wait to read it. I was initially a little put off by them just releasing the script instead of JK Rowling penning a full length novel of its own to accompany the play, but I got over it pretty quick. Any glimpse into the wizarding world, whether it be by book, screen or play is one that I will be grateful for. Always (sorry, had to be done).

NYX Haul

Wednesday, 3 August 2016

I have been waiting so long to get my hands on some NYX Cosmetics. After seeing so many people's hauls and loads of people creating some awesome looks with NYX products I decided grab some bits in Boots.
