The Velvet Shoes (and random rambles).

Hey, hey everyone. So this is me coming back from my mini-hiatus cause I've handed in two of my assignments, finally! And as a reward to myself I went on a small but stupendous shopping spree and bought these wondrous velvetty shoes which are seriously my new favourite addition to my wardrobe.

Costa's Brilliance.

Thought I'd take some time to show my amplified love for Costa Coffee. I am, in fact, sat in Costa ATM waiting to go to work... so what's a better time to share my love than right now?

An Autumn Haul.

In Newcastle this year Autumn is already well under way. Its getting super cold and layering is having to happen, I've even shoved on my parka a few times. I thought that it was about time I showed you some of the things I've bought this month, they're basically all grey/black tones... don't hate me!

Updates + Stuff.

Hello everyone. You may have noticed my posting schedule has been more than a little off this past week so I'm just letting you know the reasons why!

Battling Anxiety.

For as long as I can remember I've been battling the terrible mental disease of severe anxiety. I've tried everything to keep it together, and even though I've taught myself a little bit about how to handle myself, for the main part my anxiety has stayed as strong as ever. It has refused to respond to CBT, medication, books, techniques and anything you'd find on Google.

New Look: Autumn Wishes

November is here already which I think is totally crazy. It feels like it was just a few weeks ago when I was just starting back at uni again. With Autumn in full swing, I'd thought I'd show you some really cute seasonal picks that New Look have on offer this November.

A Weekly Obsession #7: Pop Art/ Halloween Costume.

Hello people! I've totally been out of it these past few days, I've been preparing for a uni. speech for Monday, handed an assignment in and I'm preparing for an interview the Monday after as part of my assignment, so things will be a little out of schedule I imagine. Blogging tends to be my escape though, so nothing will change that much anyway!

Naturalesque Makeup With a Hint Of Purple.

I haven't posted a makeup look in a while, and they're like my favourite things to write about so I feel pretty bad about it! I have however, had a couple of looks lined up for a while. I keep taking photos of them and writing them down but never actually publishing a post. I think its cause I get a little self-conscious.. I don't know! Anyway, here's a natural looking base with a hint of purple on the eyes... heavenly.

Blogs You Should Follow: Autumn.

If you're anything like me, you'll always be on the lookout for some new inspiration for life, some new products to dote over or new techniques and types. Finding a brilliant new blog is always an experience to remember. I find myself scrolling and scrolling and reading everything I relate to, and if its a good blog, you read it all. I've been craving to share my favourite bloggers with you this Autumn.

Mad For Mugs: My Mug Collection.

You're most likely here because the awfully crafted title has got you thinking "This is terrible" or something of the sorts, but if you're a fellow hot drinks lover, I think you might enjoy it... because today I have decided to share with you my fantastic mug collection! Hot chocolate, coffee and tea are just three things that everyone needs in life. Whether its with milk or without, apple or Earl Grey, or white or dark hot chocolate, hot drinks muse my soul.

A Weekly Obsession #6: SunbeamsJess.

I don't know what's wrong with me but I'm ashamed to say that I've only just discovered how awesome Youtuber Sunbeamsjess is. Kathryn introduced me to her earlier on this week and I have been caught up on her VLOGTOBER series on her second channel, and all of her hauls and outfits on her first channel

The New Hairspray: Making The Switch.

If there is anything that isn't fully fabulous on the beauty market yet, it has to be hairspray. I don't know about you, but I've never actually found a hairspray that I like so much that I'd happily buy it again. I eventually caught myself thinking 'Am I actually using this correctly?' even though the many YouTube tutorials say I am, and I then realised that maybe hairspray's just aren't strong enough for me!

Morning Smoothie: A Very Berry Recipe.

Mornings for many of us are usually packed with masses of different clothing items, a jumble of makeup and a clutter of papers stuffed into a not so practically sized bag. By the time you’re out the door, you have forgotten the essential of breakfast. This is an ongoing issue for most of us, so I have come up with a pleasant little recipe that fits all the breakfast nutrients into a smoothie that you can reach for, ready-made, every morning before leaving for your day.

A Weeky Obsession #5.

'Someone you pass on the street may already be the love of your life' is the catchphrase of my fifth weekly obsession- You've Got Mail. Its a 1998 classic involving a dial up internet connection + two business rivals that fall in love + they don't even know it!

5 Places I’d Like To Travel To.

OK, so this post would be ridiculously long if I didn't condense them down into five, so that's why I did so. There are seriously just too many places I want to go, even if its just for a few days, a little taste is better than nothing, right?

September Favourites.

Hey everyone. Welcome to my September Favourites! This month they're pretty product based which is a change for me I think because they're usually mixed. I'm coming up to my 6 Month anniversary of blogging, but I can't quite remember the date. Is that bad? The truth is I made this blog a while before I even posted anything, I was deliberating, you see.

September Sum Up.

Here we are already in to October. It's insane how fast my summer has gone, and how not ready I am to start uni assignments and my 2nd year, how sad! Since 2nd year is very important to your final mark, I really am trying, and hopefully succeeding with everything. It will be difficult to manage my blog and uni, and getting a part time job, so I'll just have to take the unknown in my stride!

What’s On My Desk.

I’m keeping up with the flow of the bedroom posts for a while and showing you what’s on my desk and how I go about the organisation. I have a cute little desk from IKEA. My parents got me it especially for my new uni room & its just so fantastic.

A Late Weekly Obsession #4: Knee Highs.

Bonjourno people! My posts have been a little late recently because my boyfriend came to visit me (he's still here now), but I have managed to get some time to write about my weekly obsession... knee highs.

TK Maxx Cosmetic Storage.

If you didn't know already, TK Maxx is great place for us to get some really good quality stuff for not so good quality prices. Even though it can take a while for you to dig out something of value, when you find something, you really find something. I have happened to discover a cool range of acrylic cosmetic organisers that I think you'll love!

What's On My Bedside Table.


Since my uni room is nearly all done and dusted and organised etc. (too as much as it can be, that is), I thought it was time for one of these posts. I really love the cute little bedside table I got from IKEA, it looks really nice and it was only £15, bonus!

My University Room Tour.

Hey people, today I’m giving you a little tour of my room at university. I told myself that I was going to do one when it was all completed and ready, but I then realised that I don’t think it will EVER be completed because I’m not rich, sadly. But here we go anyway, with my semi-completed room!

I Got My Hair Cut, I Got My Ears Pierced & Updates!

Hello again, I promise you I haven’t left! I have moved in to my new flat in Newcastle and I only managed to get the internet today, how tragic!

Benefit's Sugarbomb Blush.

Hello everyone! I'm sorry its been a few days, I've been distracted + busy sorting out my uni stuff. I'm going up on Saturday so things will probably be all over the place until then, I hope that's okay! Today I'm coming to you with my review of Benefit's Sugarbomb blush, I was lucky enough to receive this for my birthday, and I love it, so I thought "why not do a review?".

Why You Should Start Blogging.

Blogging is an absolutely brilliant way to help you improve yourself, your skills and your interests, whilst doing something that you adore. However, many people struggle with those first steps of taking the plunge and signing up. If you're one of those people, then today I'm here to tell you why you should take that plunge and enter the blogosphere!

September Mood Board.

So here it is, my awaited September Mood Board! I say awaited because I've been picking up bits of inspiration for anything Septembery, if that's a word, and I've had no idea how to piece them together properly. As an introduction to the series, I would like to say that this won't be a long post or anything too hardcore. I feel like a bigger impact is sometimes made from just having the pictures explain themselves, and its easier for me to produce too! I will, of course, be explaining things in a little paragraph, here it goes...

My Weekly Obsession #3.

Welcome to the third weeks weekly obsession! Its literally gone so fast, I remember sitting down deciding to create this series like... yesterday? Anyway, this weeks obsession for me is the new on the scene band London Grammar.

The Top 10 Tag.

The other day I was nominated by Millie at Corkscrew Curls for 'The Top Ten Tag' (thank you, Millie! go check her out!). Even though I'm not too fond of doing tags, I thought this one was pretty interesting so I thought I'd give it a go! If you don't know what the tag is, all you do is list your favourite product from each of the categories. I'm pretty nosy when it comes down to peoples favourites and stuff because I can discover new products, I'm sure most of you who are reading this will be similar.

So finally, here it is, my review of CHANEL's VITALUMIÉRE foundation. I've wanted to do this review ever since I got the foundation a few weeks back, but I didn't because I wanted to fully test it out and make up my mind... and I think I have come to my conclusion.

My Hair Styler Collection.

Hello readers! I've wanted to share my hair styler collection with you all since I started blogging but inspiration for other posts got in the way. Since I'm (kind of) getting back into the swing of things since coming back from Turkey, I've decided to post this now as inspiration is a little low!

MAC Lipstick - Hue.

I once loathed nude shades because I used to think they looked kind of trashy and a little bit slutty. I have no idea why I came to this conclusion, it was all in my head, of course, but I just never was attracted to nudes for that reason, and what a fool I was. Since I wasn't one for nudes, I hadn't even tried it on before until I went into MAC looking for a shade to try out. My friend Kathryn already had Hue, and it looks really nice on her so I tried it on, and I loved it.

Signature Scent - CHANEL NO. 5.

Many believe signature scents are what make people different from one another, and I happen to be one of them. Signature scents aren't just there to make you feel and smell nice, in fact, in my opinion, the better your perfume the classier you are.

My Weekly Obsession #2.

Here I am with my second weekly obsession, I really like this series up to now, even though I'm only the second post in! I think I like it so much because I don't have to sit down and have a good think or plan before I write. I just write. I find that in "just writing" I end up spilling out a load of babble which needs to be edited, of course, but I end up with better content. I might try that method when I write my next post and see how it goes.

IKEA Wishlist.

September 22nd is looming. That's the day when I officially start my second year of university. Even though I am excited to go back, the amount of work that I'll be doing is dreadful, but it'll all be for a good cause! To get me in the mood for going back, nothing works better than a good trip to IKEA. I go on one every year before I go back so I like to plan what I want to buy so I don't get too distracted by other stuff (cause then I'll just spend loads on stuff I don't really need, and no-one wants that).

August Favourites.

Hey readers, today I'm back with my August favourites. Sorry its an hour late, if you noticed, that is! Even though August is over, I'm so excited for what my September favourites will bring, and what new products will be released. Let me know if there's anything you think I'll love.

Blog News.

Hello glorious readers! If you've read my last post (Summing Up August) you would have noted that I'm planning on some schedule changes and new series' to try and reshape my blog. I thought I'd describe in a little detail more about these, and why I've decided to do them!

August Sum Up.

Happy September to you all! Here in England I'll be trying to buy the last of the summer clothes for bargains so that I can wear them next year, and I'll also be adding more layers to my outfits later in the month to protect me from cold weather (which I'm kind of looking forward to, TBH).

My Weekly Obsession #1.

This post may come totally out of the blue for many of you, and that's because it is! I've been dying to introduce a new series for a while, but I'm not good in the ideas department. I did, however, think up this idea which I think is pretty sweet.

A Turkish Haul.

Today I'm sharing some products/cute things that I got in Turkey, I thought you might like to see!

Pictures From Turkey.

Here are some pictures I've taken from Turkey. I thought I took more than this, but the other interesting ones are blurred and rather unprofessional, so I've decided to share only a select few! I hope that's okay.

Hey All - I'm Back From Holiday.

Hey ppl, just sat here enjoying my tea and cake talking to you all. I said to myself I wasn't going to blog until I had something blog theme related to say but I just couldn't resist speaking to you all. I had a great holiday, and if you follow me on Insta then you'll probably know that. Tomorrow I have some pictures coming your way- ones I haven't released yet (and ones I haven't even looked at yet). I probably wont be getting back in full swing of things until like... three days time? So don't expect anything fancy until I've caught up on my sleep and said hey to everyone at home. 

I'd just like to say thank you to those who haven't strayed away because I haven't been blogging... I feel like the great people I've met on here in the past few months are actually friends- I'll be visiting you soon and catching up! :)
