I say last minute but realistically we are only on the 8th December so there is plenty of time for you real last minute shoppers to freak out and buy your loved ones gifts! However, as most of us prefer online shopping to being pushed around in the busy streets at this time of year, it’s best to get your jingle bells in gear and shop now to ensure your gifts arrive in time! So here is my all-in-one gift guide. Gift for the Tech Lover With technology moving so fast and new exciting products being launched weekly, it is hard to know what to buy the tech lover in your life. Luckily, Panasonic have come to the rescue with their latest range of digital waterproof cameras. Oh, but not just waterproof- it’s also freezeproof, shockproof and dustproof, as well has having 20.4mp and a 4.6x optical zoom. Perfect for… View Post

Today is Black Friday which means you probably woke up to approximately 1232138372 emails from every website you’ve ever visited telling you their ‘BEST EVER’ sale is now on. Aaaaand delete. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good browse at the sales but the majority of it is always things you don’t need but because ‘oooo there’s 20% off it!!’ We feel compelled to buy them! I think the best bargains can always be found in the homeware departments as these are things we generally need, from a new toaster to that duvet cover you’ve had your eye on for ages. So, I have had a browse and compiled a list of the homeware items I think are an actual bargain this Black Friday (along with some deer serving spoons because, who doesn’t need those?!) If you happen across any other deals you think I should add- then drop… View Post

It’s a brand new year, and guess what, the unimaginable has happened. Yes, I have found skincare that actually works for me! Absolute years I have spent trying to find skincare products that work for me, and as a woman in her early 30’s, I have become very aware of the need to start some form of routine to care for my skin. My face shows signs of being 31, I have scarring from acne, a greyness under my eyes and before long I know my age will begin to show across my face. Luckily at the moment, people don’t tend to realise I am over 25 which is lovely, but I need to start taking care of myself before I do start physically ageing. I am not overly concerned about ageing as a whole. My mum who is in her 50’s has amazing skin and looks young for her… View Post

IT’S OCTOBER!  Only my favourite month of the year- along with every other absolute basics.  October comes and it’s like all of a sudden it turns into actual Autumn. Leaves start to fall, conkers appear on the ground and YES I CAN FINALLY LIGHT ALL THE AUTUMNAL CANDLES! Let’s not even discuss that it’s also when the queen of autumn beverages becomes available in Starbucks..love you PSL. My current Autumn wishlist is pretty long, as is my ASOS saved items list, and is a combination of everything I need for the new season .  1. The chunky knit jumpers I purchased one of these jumpers from New Look over the weekend and oh my..I now need it in every colour. It is the perfect knit and I love the detail at the back. Not to mention it comes in berry and mustard which are the ultimate Autumn colours!  2. Autumn… View Post

You may have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet on the ol’ blogging front, I felt a bit ‘meh’ about it for a while (ok nearly all of September) but after giving myself a shake, reading some inspiring blogs and playing about with my Olympus Pen, I’m back.  I thought about coming back with an intense life post but these ‘favourites’ type posts are the ones I love to read, so here, an easy read for you which may leave your bank balance a bit lighter by the end, soz not soz.  Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic I KNOW, I’m so late to the party as usual with this one but OMG. This stuff is like actual magic. After my holiday in August, my skin needed a bit of a pick me up. So perusing my local M&S I spied the much loved among bloggers Pixi Glow Tonic and thought YES,… View Post
