OH HEY THERE GIANT PICTURE OF MY FACE. Weren’t expecting that on your Friday morning were you? It’s been a while since I’ve shown you some products on my face, so last week I snapped my everyday summer makeup routine, and show you the products I use to make the magic happen (ie, hide the fact I’m sick as a dog).
This week is turning into something of a Summer series so stay tuned for more sunshine – oriented content coming your way! Today I thought I’d spill the contents of my summer handbag, which is admittedly more streamlined than I’m used to! I’ve been trying to cut back and not carry so much clutter, but there are a few summer handbag essentials I think everyone should be carrying!
Just a little PSA to let y’all know I’ve popped a new video up on my YouTube Channel! I had my first reflexology appointment last week so I wanted to film a little something talking about how that went and what to expect if you’re thinking of trying it yourself! I also filmed a little day trip to London to hang out with friends and get work done!
Let me know if you enjoy this more casual style of video, kinda a few things rolled into one! Thanks again for watching.
Moving house is a pretty expensive game, and when you have to buy a whole house of furniture too, it only makes it worse. That’s the scenario Connor and I were faced with back at the end of May, and we realised that we had a three bedroom flat and no furniture. Up until now we’ve always lived in furnished accommodation, so we really were starting from scratch with no furniture at all. I thought I’d share some tips for furnishing your place with a budget, without looking like you live in an IKEA showroom.
I used to do empties posts (semi) regularly, but I don’t know I feel like I kinda wasn’t offering much useful within the posts, other than a decision on whether I’d be repurchasing or not. So I kinda let them die a death. But recently I’ve used up a few things all in one go and I thought I’d try and recreate the old empties post, in the style of some mini reviews – in the hopes that now I’ve used all of the product, I’ll be able to give you a more rounded review!
Bullet Journals have been having a moment for the last year or so, and they don’t seem to be dying down! I’ve been a bullet journal convert for a few years now, although perhaps not in the ‘traditional’ sense, I like using mine for lists + appointments, making plans and plotting content, and I like it all to look pretty too! I get a lot of questions about my bullet journal, so today I thought I’d walk you through how I set up my bullet journal for a new month + the pages I like to have ready and raring to go when the first rolls around!
I found myself at a lose end a few weeks ago after Connor left on a last minute business trip and 90% of the world was at Glastonbury. I don’t mind being home alone for a week, but I like to know in advance so I can make a few plans to keep me busy. So in this case, when I had two days notice of a week alone and everyone I knew already had plans, I was really not looking forward to it. Luckily, my wonderful mama stepped in at that point and suggested we take the spa break we’d been talking about taking for weeks, so on the hottest day of the year we bundled into the car and made our way down to the Bedruthan hotel.
Despite finishing his Masters degree back in September, Connor’s graduation wasn’t until this week, so once we had a date we decided it was the perfect excuse for a London Mini Break! It’s now been almost a year since we waved goodbye to our little London flat, but London still feels like home, so the excuse for a three day trip to our city was not to be missed!
It’s no secret that I’m an Instagram addict, I just love me some Insta! Recently scrolling, double tapping and spending far too long thinking up ‘witty’ comments hasn’t been enough, and I’ve progressed to using the app to plan trips. Whaaaat I hear you say.
