Beauty Items I've been loving lately

I'm always trying out new makeup and beauty products so it takes a lot for something to make the cut into every day use. I've been making more of an effort with my makeup stash recently and there's a few bits I've been going back to time and time again. There is only one product that is particularly pricey so grab your Boots card and getting shopping!

My Perfect Chanel Red

Owning a classic red lipstick is something I think is very important, there is no greater feeling than a slick of red to make you feel like you really have your shit together. I've searched high and low for my perfect red over the years and I discovered mine in a way I never would've expected.

Staying Soft with Palmers

I couldn't tell you how many years I've been using Palmer's Cocoa Butter for, it's a scent I always associate with my younger years. Palmer's is also one of the go to brands when it comes to keeping skin smooth and stretchmarks reduced so I off I toddled to Boots to check out the range. They've come a long way since the single bottles of cocoa butter I used to buy!

Selfie Ready by Lottie London

I've always been a firm believer that you should pay more for a decent foundation. The base is what sets everything together after all and if the base is rubbish, the rest won't work. There is one highstreet foundation I swear by, Seventeen Stay Time but I've recently been trying out Selfie Ready from Lottie London which is just £6.95, the same price as my beloved Stay Time. Read on to see what I thought.

Five Websites for Wedding Inspiration

When we were first engaged, I headed straight to WHSmith to buy allllll the wedding magazines. Since that moment, they mainly just collected dust until I eventually chucked them in the recycling. I've found that I head to Pinterest, wedding blogs or websites more than I pick up a magazine and since that trip to the newsagents almost a year go, I haven't bought a single one. Here are five wedding websites I go back to time and time again.

Summer Hauling at Homesense

You can always count on Homesense to satisfy your need for homeware shopping. A little over a year ago, a Homesense mega store opened in Southampton and I've been throwing my money at them ever since. They provide me with notebooks I don't need, lanterns and candles my home definitely doesn't need plus all the rest in-between. With Summer hopefully approaching it was time for new pieces...

The Latest Subscription Box in Town

I've started to find subscription boxes a little on the bland side recently. I'm fed up of hair masques, perfume samples and product packets I could find inside the latest magazines being the main show, I just need something more exciting. I had just about lost all hope until the newest of new subscription boxes landed in my mitts. Introducing The Curated Combination...

Three Shoes to add to your Lust List

Anyone that knows me, will know I have a bit of a shoe addiction. I've always stuck with the motto of shoes will always fit so my collection is quite vast after many a failed shopping trip. I've been having a love in with florals for some time and that reflected perfectly within my shoe collection so it was only right, my spring additions also had a floral love in.

Is Matte Really All That?

I've said many a time how I'm a big lover of foundation and I have an impressive collection at home. I've been using more from Clarins the last year and I've really started to love the brand. Two of their newest products are face related with a new foundation and powder duo but are they really all that?
