Cold winter day out: ootd

We went to Belton House last week, as I love exploring National Trust properties, and this is one of the closest ones to where I live. I find Belton house best to visit in the Autumn/ Winter months, as they have a garden centre opposite, filled with the most festive displays around, and great Christmas…

October favourites

The months of Autumn have been whizzing by, so now we are back to another monthly favourites post! So here’s a few things that I was loving throughout Halloween month: I featured the Bluebird Tea Company’s Pumpkin Pie tea in a recent ‘Autumn’ blog post, and I have been loving it throughout October. It’s such…

Pumpkin carving and Halloween movie night.

Happy Halloween! I always enjoyed Halloween when I was a little kid: I loved getting dressed up. In recent years too, Halloween has been one of my favourite holidays, with Halloween parties and home decor, and also marking mine and my boyfriend’s anniversary! I’ve carved two pumpkins over the last couple of days, so I thought…

Violet Voss Holy Grail palette: review

Recently I decided to get the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette, so I thought I’d give a review of the palette today. I spent ages looking at different palettes searching for a new ‘everyday’ palette, holding all the shades that I could use to create loads of different looks, and I came across this one….

Three things making me ready for Autumn. 

Autumn is definitely upon us and I am loving it. From the fashion style to long Autumn walks, there is not much that I do not love about this season, so I thought I would share with you just a few things that are making me ready for the digression into the colder months, October…

September Favourites

How is it October already? It’s unbelievable how fast September whizzed by, meaning it’s now less than 100 days until Christmas! (not that I’m counting of course) September has been a busy month for me but I’ve definitely managed to accumulate a few favourites! Asos trench coat– I bought this trench coat back in July…

Biker jacket loving

I am definitely one of those people who can ‘never have too many jackets’. I just find SO many jackets/coats that I LOVE both online and when I’m out shopping, especially at this time of year. Biker jackets are definitely one of my favourite styles of jackets, with so many different variations currently circulating around the shopping…

Making the last of the Summer glow 

Summer makeup for me is mainly focused on two things: bronze and glow. The Summer months are the perfect opportunity to experiment with more bronzers and highlighters to maximise your natural tone, so I thought I’d show you some of my favourite products that can help you cheat that summer glow whilst we head into…

Skincare duo // Pixi Beauty

I am definitely a skin care addict. Anything that says ‘glow’ ‘hydrate’ or ‘brighten’ on the packaging screams out to me, therefore I knew I had to get these two products from Pixi Beauty. I’d heard of the brand before, after trying their double cleanse which they created as a collaboration with Caroline Hirons, and…

The Body Shop Banana hair mask

I’m naturally a brunette, however last Christmas I decided to change my hair up a bit, gradually adding more and more blonde up to this Summer. Although loving the shade, both the touch ups every two months or so, and using straighteners a lot had really damaged the quality of my hair, creating split ends…

First couple’s holiday // Lake District

September is one of my favourite months. Not too cold, yet jumpers, scarves and boots start to appear, signifying that my favourite season is here also: Autumn. We chose to go on our break in September due to that reason, and also because it falls within the first week back at school for many families,…

Current fave lipsticks: Autumn 17

Autumn/Winter for me is ALL about the berry red lips. I have so many different shades of berry it’s sometimes hard to choose which one I want to wear some days! However, I’ve whittled it down to four favourites for the upcoming months. In order: Colourpop Lippie Stix: Grunge- This is a more brown toned…
