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.

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!
