Having less screen time is one of the primary ways I switch off from the world and indulge in a little self care. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to discover them, but podcasts seem to have taken over my life and I am now obsessed with finding new ones to listen to- especially if they are Harry Potter or real life crime related! With a range of hands and wire free ways to listen, such as the Panasonic Speaker System which you can stream your music or podcasts straight through for perfectly balanced sound; you can put your phone to one side and get lost in a world which allows you to completely switch off. Potterless Podcast I discovered this podcast after Cherry Wallis raved about it on her Instagram Stories and basically haven’t stopped listening since! Potterless follows twenty-something American Mike Schubert, as he reads… View Post

If you’re anything like me, you’ll be the type of person who is forever looking for new kinds of food to try. I’m not someone who will stick to one type of food when looking for somewhere to brunch with friends or dine on date night. I enjoy finding something different, something with new flavours and dishes and also somewhere that’s Instagrammable is an absolute plus. Well Turtle Bay in Colchester covers all of this! I attended the opening of this restaurant a few months ago where we got to try some samples from the menu which were all amazing so this time I decided to drag my friend Tarnya along with me to try some dishes of our choice. We started the only way you should in Turtle Bay…with Cocktails. Lucky for us it was happy hour and we got 2 for 1 on each of our drinks. I… View Post

I am always looking for ways to jazz up my house with something new and what better way to do that than with a new print to brighten the walls? I have become a woman obsessed. From cute quotes, maps of places we have been and not to mention ALL the Harry Potter artwork, prints have very much become a staple in the Lewis household. I wanted to share with you a few of my faves along with my go to places to buy them. Map of New York- Desenio Having been to NYC this time last year and falling head over heels in love with it, our house naturally is now covered with New York themed everything. My fave being this print from Desenio. They also have it available in other locations so you can have your very own collection or a ‘where we have been’ travel wall in… View Post

I feel like I am probably the only person in the world who has this opinion but I CAN’T STAND MATTE LIPSTICKS. There, I said it.  I have found around 3 matte lipsticks I can actually bare wearing and they are by Mac, Charlotte Tilbury and Chanel. I constantly have dry lips despite drinking gallons of water and applying lip balm by the bucket load so matte lipsticks do not work for me.  Going to sound like the worst blogger now, but i haven’t actually purchased a new lipstick in about 6 months (oh, the horror). Once I find a lip product I love, I find it difficult to move away from it and try something new. Lately it’s been a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect and Mac’s Peach Blossom- ultimate old faves! BUT, I had a trip to my local Boots after work this week to pick up… View Post

Oh hi there, it’s been a while, right?! Soz for it all being quiet on the blog front, I decided to take (most of) January as a break from writing and general blog happenings. More of that later, but first, what better way to come back than with a little Lush faves hey?  Have to admit, i spent a while in Lush sniffing all of their new releases for Valentines day and these three were the ones that stood out for me.  Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar Back this year is the popular Unicorn Horn, not only is it super pretty and totally instagrammable it also smells incredible. With lavender oil to relax and neroli oil which apparently helps “increase serotonin levels in the brain which makes you feel contented”. YES LUSH. I used this last night in my bath and legit didn’t want to get out of it (until the water… View Post
