It’s that time of year again where my every day makeup drawers get a reshuffle to make way for my autumnal makeup picks! I love my little seasonal reshuffles, it’s like shopping your own stash and rediscovering old loves! This year I’ve picked a few stellar products out of the lineup that I’m excited to wear over the new season!
A slight change of gears over here today, but when I had my first day surgery last year I had a precursory Google to see what I should take with me, and there was very little information available. Everything online was geared for people heading into hospital for at least a few days, rather than someone rocking up at 8am and being discharged after tea. SO, with my fourth day surgery under my belt as of last week, I thought I’d put together a list of what to pack for day surgery, just in case there are other frantic Google-ers like myself!
Sundays are all about food as far as I’m concerned and when I wake up in the morning I’m thinking about breakfast in bed. I want something hearty and filling that’s easy to cook, and this Sunday Morning Breakfast Skillet is just that!
As a teen who suffered horribly with bad, hormonal skin, skincare has been an important part of my beauty routine for as long as I can remember. My No 7 and Clinique filled skincare routine got me out of my stressed skin acne days, and into a place where I got a little too comfortable with my good skin, and let my skincare routine slide. Fast forward to today and I’m trying really hard with my skincare again, trying hard to make it simple but effective, but also luxurious and comforting so I WANT to do it. Over the last two years my skincare routine has changed massively, and I wanted to chat to you guys about it.
Autumn is on it’s way, and there are whisperings of it’s arrival everywhere. The first few curled yellow leaves have started to fall, the morning arrives with a new chill to the air, and my summer dresses have been packed away to make room for cosy knitwear to fill my wardrobe. I love dressing for this time of year, jumpers and jeans are my jam, so I tend to go hard on the knitwear during September and October, before the knitwear get’s buried under layers of coats! I love knitwear, but I know that it isn’t the easiest thing to shop or care for, so I wanted to share some of my tips in preparation for your autumn wardrobes!
Ugh I just can’t resist Lush. Despite having a giant box filled with bath bombs, bubble bars and the like, I still can’t resist popping into a store when I’m nearby. My bathroom is full of stacks of little black pots, my bedside table looks like a Lush pop up store – even my fridge isn’t safe and is stuffed with face masks! That being said, I don’t actually talk much about Lush here, and I think I should considering that I know walking into a Lush store can be a little intimidating if you’re not sure what you’re looking for! So, I thought I’d round up my six ride-or-die products, the one’s I always have stashed about the house!
Autumn is the BEST season. That’s not an opinion, it’s an objective fact! Friday marks the official start of Autumn, and I’ve heard a few people complaining about Summer being over, so today I’m going to prove you all wrong with a list of reasons why Autumn is the best!
Last month I had a massive wardrobe clear out, getting rid of the pieces I never wore or that had seen better days, and making a list of any gaps in my wardrobe, bits to pick up. One thing I was seriously lacking were jackets, I had hoodies and winter coats, but I was lacking in jackets for those days when I need a little more than a jumper but less than a full winter parka. SO, a little shopping spree ensued and I thought I’d share my perfect autumn jackets.
Yes you read that right, the stars have aligned and the collaboration of your dreams is here, September’s Birchbox is in collaboration with Oliver Bonas! I was lucky enough to get my hands on one last week at the press event and let me tell you – it doesn’t disappoint! I always tend to pick up the limited edition/collab boxes from Birchbox, and the Oliver Bonas Birchbox is no exception to that rule – it’s beautiful!
