My Go-To Hairstyles

November 22, 2017

Hi guys,

I’m so excited to work with GHD to showcase two of my favourite hairstyles at the moment – a slick straight look and a curly top knot. I’ve had the GHD for more than 10 years and use it almost every single day – to say I’m a fan is an understatement.

I have found myself being much more careful with my hair over the past few months. I’ve experienced breakage and damage and I’m so conscious to try and prevent that now. The GHD platinum range allows you to style your hair over and over with 50% less breakage so your hair stays stronger and healthier. There’s more styling opportunities with less chance of breakage and damage – it’s a win win! Continue Reading…

Christmas Partywear Shopping

November 15, 2017

Hello there,

The countdown to Christmas has most definitely begun and I don’t know about you, but I like to have some nice Christmassy outfits organised for all of those silly season nights out. Lets face it, there’s a lot of them.

There’s no harm in getting ahead and having a few bits ready to go. I think coming into December we’ll start to see a lot of people panic shopping meaning what you’re looking for mightn’t be there in your size (AHH!)

I’ve tried to pick items that have a good range of sizes left, and there is lots of sparkles, velvet and deep colours in there – perfect for Christmas time,

Happy shopping ūüôā

My New and Improved Bedroom

November 9, 2017

Hi guys,

As you can probably tell, I am absolutely in love with my new and improved room. You may have seen my YouTube video where I gave a tour and showed you all our little storage tips and tricks, but I wanted to show you a few more photos.

Let me explain the backstory to me wanting (and needing) to sort out my room….

As a blogger, I have a lot of products, clothes, shoes, equipment that I need and use everyday. I get deliveries several times a week and keeping on top of everything is definitely a challenge. Especially when I was working full time, I let a lot of things pile up and I was turning into a hoarder.

About two months ago, I started clearing things out but realised I still didn’t know where to put things. I didn’t have any system of organisation in my room, and honestly trying to get things done when you’re not organised is impossible. I can’t think clearly or work well in a cluttered, messy space.

It was at this stage I found Frances from Organised Mayhem who came to my home for a consultation. She took some before pictures of my room (that you can see in my YouTube video) and had lots of ideas for how I could get organised. We started by moving furniture in my room, we then created a list of what we would need, I set a budget and we got to work.

IKEA, TK Maxx and Penneys were my main shopping destinations and it’s great as they are all relatively inexpensive. I’ll list where I got everything below. Continue Reading…

Winter Coat Shopping?

October 30, 2017

Hi guys,

I hope you’re all having a lovely relaxing Bank Holiday Monday. I spent the day walking around the shops and catching up with friends. There is so many nice winter bits out at the moment. I had to use all my will power not to buy things (I’m trying to cut back after the big purchase that was my CAR, last week haha!)

I thought I would do a bit of online browsing and put together a post with my favourite coats online at the moment,

Just because I can’t shop doesn’t mean I can’t look ūüėČ

Happy shopping!
