Style & Comfort With Hotter Shoes

A couple of weeks ago I was invited by Oxfordshire Bloggers to an event at Hotter Shoes, in Oxford, to see their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. I was really excited to attend this event because I am a huge lover of good quality shoes and having always shopped in Clarks, I was feeling ready to mix up my shoe shopping habits. Hotter is a brand of similar quality to Clarks, but one I have never bought from. I am not the sort of person who will buy shoes from Primark or Topshop because I always feel that they're a waste of money as the quality is terrible and also because I am a half size and that means that nothing ever fits me in standard shoe shops.

Becoming A Yes Woman

It's no secret that the last few months of my life have been completely crazy. I don't like to look back because I have moved forward and I am feeling really good about everything, but for this topic it's relevant. I cannot deny that what happened at the beginning of this year didn't change me as a person. It didn't entirely change me, I am still the person I've always been, however something altered inside me. My mentality shifted on certain feelings and thoughts, but in a positive way. I am content with myself again.

The Konjac Sponge

I have been meaning to write about this product for a long time. I was kindly sent a Konjac Facial Sponge a couple of months back but when I moved house it ended up a box I didn't unpack until very recently. Lets breeze past the length of time it took me to unpack and talk about this weird and wonderful sponge, The Konjac Sponge.

Cheltenham Races 2017

I recently went to one of the largest horse racing events within the UK, Cheltenham Races. I was lucky enough to be invited by Ladbrokes (the official sponsors of Cheltenham) who held a blogger event to experience the gold ticket festival package, and what an experience!

YouTube Video: The Beauty Tag

In my slightly hungover and frazzled hair state, I filmed 'The Beauty Tag' today. Talking about beauty is my favourite past time so this video was fun to make! I am starting to get back into the swing of filming, editing and uploading - fingers crossed I can keep it up! Now I just need to get my blogging mojo back...

My Small Aspirations

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Then throw in a double shot of vodka because life is too damn short.

Being Bold With NYX Cosmetics

Everyone has a hobby and I think that make up is mine. I like looking at it, buying it, experimenting with it and reading and writing about it online. I find it really interesting the way different products work and also how other people perceive them. Something can work so well for one person, but not for another. Why is that? I wish there was a science course I could attend to learn more about the ingredients and I genuinely think my dream day out would be at a factory seeing how production works and how the creation of make up happens. I am forever looking at ingredients in make up hoping that one day I understand any of the bloody words... hydro-what-now?

My New Chapter

Recently my life completely changed. Everything I thought I had and I thought was happening ended over a weekend. The break up was out of the blue and not my choice but the problems and atmosphere were old news. For a long time I put all my energy into a relationship that was destined to fail because the other person didn't want it. 
Love is blinding.

The Best Hair Care Products

I have been trying to grow my hair long since birth. Seriously. I have always wanted long hair but it never seemed to grow past a certain point, so I'd get frustrated and cut it off or dye it which would leave it in a terrible condition. Finding the perfect hair care is like finding the perfect skincare, there are so many options and so much to consider. I wanted to share my favourite hair care products that I am forever repurchasing because when you know something is good, why not share it?

Saving Money With Coconut Oil

I am completely obsessed with coconut oil. If you're a reader of my blog, you'll know how I feel about a product that has multiple uses. Coconut oil is such a worthwhile purchase because it's incredibly affordable and so much can be done with it. I've always associated it with food and hair products, never really giving it much thought. Now that I've realised how incredible this product is and what I can use it on, I'm forever repurchasing.

Spin For Perfect Skin

I am that person who will walk up to a total stranger and ask them where they got their shoes from. I am also that person who will ask someone with flawless skin how they achieve it. I did that recently to a girl I work with (who has the most incredibly flawless skin and make up) and her answer was: Vanity Planet.

What's In My Make Up Bag?

I am a creature of habit and routine, especially with the way I look. The only difference I will make to my make up is that sometimes I decide against winged eyeliner, and that really only comes down to pure laziness. For a night out I might go for a bright lip colour or some dark eye shadow, but more often than not, I look exactly the same.

2017 New Year Resolutions

Before you worry, this is not a 'new year, new me' post. I'm perfectly happy with the person I am and I am not able to give myself a new personality or drastically change my life. I merely set myself up a few things I'd like to achieve this year. Light hearted, doable and things I wished I'd been doing all along.

Here are my 5 achievable new years resolutions...
